Lich's Approach

This week we have a deck that started life as a rouge brew and has become my go to deck for Standard: Lich’s Approach This is the centrepiece of the entire deck. We cast with a on board. This allows us to put Approach seventh from the top, then draw seven cards. So we win the following turn. It’s from this point that we start to build the deck. The first problem I encountered is that pure...

Standard White Weenie

Dominaria is a massive throwback to sets gone by, and as such has revived an archetype of those days as well: White Weenie.   For newer players who haven’t seen this archetype before, White-Weenie is a go wide deck that utilises cheap creatures to get aggressive. It’s kind of like aggro, but with much more nostalgia arond the name. It's not like the deck hasn't seen attempts at revival...

Thran Temporal Gateway Deck Tech

Today we have our first deck tech of Dominaria Standard, and boy is it a fun one: Cheating Mana Costs.  The deck is based around using these three cards to drop some serious threats way earlier than they should hit the board. It's a similar idea to the old decks, and we all know how good they were. and don't require any additional set up, making them very easy to play. is less simple however. In...

Best in Class: Rivals Of Ixalan

This week I'll be constructing a deck of the most iconic cards from this past Standard, and seeing what comes out the other end.  When building this deck, we're going to start at the bottom of the curve and work our way up. For me, the most iconic one drop has been . This card brought Ramunap Red to the front of the pack a couple of seasons ago and has kept it there ever since.  can generate...

Standard Panharmoni-Combo

This week I have a super spicy combo deck for you. Let's check out Four Colour Panharmonicon. This deck is looking to make infinite Thopters with the help of . In order to do this we have two main set ups. For this we set up we need a single Virtuoso and then a trio of s or s. This way, every time we make a Thopter we get three energy, and thus we can make another Thopter and so on and so forth....

Standard Four Colour Tokens

This week I'm bringing you guys my favourite deck of Rivals of Ixalan Standard; Four Colour Tokens. This deck is looking to survive the early game, make chump blockers to preserve our life total, then generate a massive board state to win the game. To help us stall in the early game we have , , and . All three of these are ideal for stopping an early assault, and there's not much more to them...

Building Standard on a Budget

This week I want to talk budget deck building, and how you can get into Standard for a lot cheaper than you might think. The first thing that most players realize when trying to break into Standard is that deck centre pieces tend to be a little on the expensive side. Take , for example. She is a whopping $25.00 a piece. As someone who tends to play on quite an extreme budget, I simply don't have...

UW Cycling

Today we'll be taking a look at a 5-0 decklist from this past week, UW Cycling. This deck is very well positioned at the moment with a meta full of creatures and creature removal. A spell heavy deck will allow us to answer all the creatures our opponent can deploy, whilst our go-wide win condition is too much for the one for one removal. The strategy is centered around . If we can survive the...
