Strictly Eternal 101 – Where Lumberjacks Roam

Howdy folks! It’s Joe again and we’re here for another edition of The History of the Lumberjack: The Mountain’s Mightiest Men! Or rather, a little Legacy.

This week we’re looking at a very interesting deck created by “adrieng” off the Source, called “RG Stuff” or “RG Things”! This deck is pretty insanely cool, running cards like Orcish Lumberjack and Titania, Protector of Argoth.

The Core of the Deck

As you can see, this deck is crazy fun. Ramping into a Turn 2 Dragonlord Atarka or Primeval Titan off a Lumberjack is real. For that matter, so is ramping into a 20/20 off Dark Depths / Thespian’s Stage. However, another solid fun card is Titania, Protector of Argoth being able to generate 5/3’s off Lumberjack, Sylvan Safekeeper, Crop Rotation, etc.

The sideboard contains mostly what you would think. Combo hate and enchantment hate, as well as some blue hate in the form of Choke.

All in all this looks like a neat deck. We took it through its paces in 5 matches, going 3-2! Let’s check out the matches. Obviously take some note that these videos were recorded before the banning of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe, so some of these decks we’re up against may look different going forward.

Match 1 vs 4C Pyromancer (1-2 LOSS)

Match 2 vs Soldier Stompy (2-0 WIN)

Match 3 vs Junk Deathblade (1-2 LOSS)

Match 4 vs UB Nonsense (2-0 WIN)

Match 5 vs 4C Loam (2-0 WIN)

Post Thoughts

I really enjoyed this deck a lot. It has a lot of surprising tools and win cons, and the name is very apt in description as it really is just a pile of “things”. However, it does have a lot of a strength. One of the users on my Discord server, Solnox, is also continuing to test new versions of the deck, implementing technology such as Knight of the Reliquary among other things. It’s definitely a deck I will play around more with in the future (so much so that I’m considering picking up pieces of it in paper).

Wrapping Up

That’s all the time we have this week! Next time on Strictly Eternal we’re looking at another midrange type list, one that’s somewhat similar to Loam. A deck known as Sylvan Plug!

So join me next time on The Plug: The World’s Most Famous Electrical Outlets!
