Welcome to Goldfish Gladiator, a new series with a twist: rather than taking place on Magic Online, Goldfish Gladiator is focused on Magic Arena. If you aren't familiar with Magic Arena, it's the next digital Magic client (currently in beta). While Magic Arena will eventually have normal Standard just like paper and Magic Online, it has a unique format right now, highlighted by the lack of Kaladesh block and a best-of-one (no sideboards) tournament structure, which means deck building is slightly different (so you probably don't want to build today's deck card-for-card on Magic Online or in paper). One of the weird quirks of the Arena metagame is that it's infested by aggro decks. There are a few reasons for this, but the two big ones are that aggro decks tend to be cheaper to build (since they require fewer rares and mythics) and because Arena rewards playing as many games as possible as quickly as possible to help achieve various quests to earn gold and packs (for example, going 2-1 with an aggro deck is more beneficial than going 1-0 with a control deck in the same amount of time). With this in mind, our deck this week—Firesong and Sunspeaker Control—is designed to be the aggro assassin. While control can be hard, the idea is that you can have a very strong deck on Arena simply be crushing every aggro deck you run into, even if the control matchup is a bit shaky. The deck is super awesome, and I think it's actually very strong in the current meta, but enough of my ramblings—let's get to the gameplay so you can see it in action!
