Sssssultai Conssssstrictor

Standard

shagg


After the bans I felt I would rather drop energy than change colors, I really love how versatile sultai is. So I dropped all those hot energy consuming cards, including the hubs, for a reanimation/value/midrange/ramp/goodstuff. So far its proven very strong.

Against fast agro decks like mono red and simic merfolk, it's important to have a couple pushes or Walking Ballistas to disrupt their brutal early game tempo.

Shapers' Sanctuary is just an amazing card vs. about half the decks out there. Anything that targets your stuff a lot. Mono red? My guy can't block? Draw a card. Lightning Strike? Draw a card. Tap my creature? Draw a card.

Vraska, Relic Seeker can destroy enchantments, almost everyone overlooks this at first. Hostage Taker can target relics, another play that gets some people by surprise. Just go ahead and keep stealing your opponents best pieces. There is an answer for everything in this deck.

Pull from Tomorrow has broken a few stalemates for me. By mid-late game there's a decent chance it's in your hand, and drawing 8 cards is usually followed by my opponent scooping if we were both down to 1 or 2 cards before that.

Reanimation value is there too, with The Scarab God and Journey to Eternity  Flip on board and nice targets like Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Hostage Taker, and Verdurous Gearhulk, as well as whatever your opponent is playing.

As always I apreciate any suggestions.
