The Punisher





Fooling around in Orzhov Standard.
Always a work in progress.

A control heavy deck that features Fatal Push, Trial of Ambition, and Angel of Sanctions,
A Deathtouch + First Strike combo with Cartouche of Solidarity + Gifted Aetherborn or Bone Picker,
Loads of incidental Life Gain with Gifted Aetherborn and Aerial Responder
Tempo / Control Synergy with a Bone Picker following a Fatal Push or Trial of Ambition.
Cartouche of Solidarity bounces the Trial of Ambition to my hand for more control.
Sheltering Light / Supernatural Stamina protect against Fatal Push and Harnessed Lightning.

Times Played: 1 FNM and 3 Standard Showdowns (pre-Gideon of the Trials)
Total record: 8-8

1-1 vs BUG Energy.
1-1 vs Ramanup Red.
0-3 vs Grixis Control.
3-0 vs Vampire Tribal.

I felt like this deck needed a little pick-me-up. Got lucky and pulled a Gideon of the Trials in a Standard Showdown pack and think he may be just what this deck needs to give it that extra edge. Torment of Hailfire and Torment of Scarabs seemed underwhelming overall and I think Gideon will perform nicely.

Suggestions rock.
