Aggro Building for Beginners by Trikon
For an aggro deck attack power is the most important thing on a creature. You are trying to bring your opponents life to zero fast so having a higher attack is more important. Evasion is really good, but usually when it comes to sacrificing attack for evasion, itís just not worth it. This is why Savannah Lions is better than suntail hawk in an aggro deck most of the time.

The important thing to learn about yourself is how you like to play the game.

Thematic Deck Building by Womble
I take something I like, and I build around it. It might be an individual card, a combo, a creature type, or even something as simple as a cool-looking card or a theme. But I take this something I like, then try and work out how it can impact a game.
