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, it’s just not worth it. This is why Savannah Lions is better than suntail hawk in an aggro deck most of the time.
