Utilizing a litany of cheap Goblins, burn, and pump through Goblin Trashmaster and Coalition Construct, you can put on some really nice pressure! Whether it’s better than the traditional Mono Red Aggro we’ve seen do well in Alchemy so far, it is definitely a fun proposition.

Midrange strategies are all the craze in Standard, and Darigaaz, Shivan Champion could be an interesting addition for Jund colors.

Tiana, Angelic Mechanic and Protean War Engine adds further obvious Vehicle synergies, and it does look like some sort of Vehicle midrange strategies are catching traction in Standard so it is worth checking out.

Mono White Aggro in Alchemy is relatively intact after rotation thanks to Inquisitor Captain. Benalish Knight-Counselor is a great one drop addition that replaces Usher of the Fallen.

Nerfs to Fearsome Whelp and Town-Razer Tyrant has quickly extinguished Dragons in Alchemy since their first release, but Shivan Devastator and the new Darigaaz's Whelp can be fun additions to try if you dare.
