Where it’s snowing
All winter through
That’s where I want to be
Snowball throwing
That’s what I’ll do
How I’m longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh

—“Snow!!!” from Irving Berlin’s White Christmas

Snow is a pervasive theme in this Jumpstart cube, and this mono-red pack takes advantage of that. In the spirit of extreme winter sports, this selection of snow and goblin cards wants to turn sideways on as much powder as possible.

Advent 5: Snow!!!

Creatures (7)
Goblin Furrier
Goblin Rimerunner
Goblin Ski Patrol
Goblin Snowman
Ohran Yeti
Stalking Yeti
Rimescale Dragon

Artifacts (1)
Coldsteel Heart

Spells (4)
Goblin Oriflamme
Hordeling Outburst
Lands (8)
Snow-Covered Mountain

This pack’s strategy is simply to amass a critical mass of snow permanents and goblins, using Stalking Yeti to pick off small creatures, and Rimescale Dragon and a massive Skred to either lock down or remove anything too large for the Yeti to handle. With blockers out of the way, the army of goblins are free to snowboard down your mountains to Winter Olympics gold!

Honorable Mention

A phenomenally flavorful card that just doesn’t work over webcam:
