Releasing the Hounds in Historic!


Dogs have the best tribal lord ever printed in Magic.

Pack Leader

Aside from being the usual 2/2 for two mana that pumps your squad +1/+1, Pack Leader also allows you to attack with everything you have every turn with complete impunity. This is an amazing effect to have in a deck that wants to go wide, wants to be aggressive, and will occasionally be outclassed by one or two big blockers.

Release the Dogs
Venerated Loxodon
Conclave Tribunal

Add the very interesting Jump Start card Release the Dogs to the mix, which is already a powerful card on rate, alongside some powerful and proven convoke cards like Venerated Loxodon and it starts to look like we're building quite the dog house!

Well that was pretty ruff, but we did call the deck The Underdogs for a reason!

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath
Bonecrusher Giant

Okay, maybe this deck isn't the best suited for super serious high ladder play. There just isn't enough solid support for the tribe yet as it needs to be fleshed out more, and you've really gotta hit all your marks on curve and have things come together nicely which we struggled with numerous times.

But if you're looking for a fun tribal deck that has some bite to it, there is a surprising amount of synergy here. While it felt like we never had our fourth land for Release the Dogs into a convoke card, there's a lot of power there, and four mana for four tokens is quite good anyway. Plus, how can you be mad and these good doggos, they're trying their best!
