I came to that realization of I am incredibly outdated in the world of Magic. My last really successful deck was a Green/Black elves deck where I just created 1/1 elf tokens and gained health for all elf creatures on the field. Which was just plane awesome! Particularly those games where I just racked up the health to the 200 range. Yeah…
Alas, though, it is no longer standard. I shall not abandoned my first really lovely deck, but I can’t just whip it out all the time either. So I’ve started to look at some cool alternatives and right now I have a white/blue deck going on that revolves around flying and exalted. It is pretty awesome. A fun set of mechanics to work with, but I’ll cover that elsewhere.
Now I have always had a love of canines. I went digging in what is considered standard currently and found a bunch of wolves that hang out all together and have this undying thing. Neat. So I started to mess around a bit with them. Then I found a bunch of green and red enchantments that add +1 to at least attack and was like OMG please yes pile drive deck! I also have a few of the Werewolves that switch back and forth, which is neat, cause you either deal with the werewolf side or you get rid of a bunch of spells to switch it back to human.
So I’ll be working on that over the next week or so that way I have two standard decks I can play with at Escapist Expo. If anyone has card recommendations or strategies, please offer them up as I go! I’ll probably give another update at the end of the weekend. I’m also looking for something to match with black in the current set, so I can have a third deck, so if you have any builds you wanna toss to me or cards to offer up, I am more then willing! Then I’ll start looking at EDH/Commander when I get back.
Until then thanks for reading and I hope you stay tuned for the card list!
