A Semi-cheap, aggro Human deck for standard. This is my original idea for this deck, I've developed it based on playing it at FNM/SCG. It is NOT based on anyone elses decks. The whole idea behind the reanimation is not only for both Zealous Conscripts and Sigarda, Host of Herons, but also for reanimating your opponents fatties. Locally reanimate has been picking up recently, so why not let them toss a beautiful Thragtusk or Angel of Serenity to the grave for you, and let you reanimate?


Took this deck to SCG LA, ended up going against 4 naya decks, 3 bant, 1 mirror, 1 g/b zombies and 1 rites. Beat bant, mirror, zombies and rites, lost to 4x naya (bonfires all around) and tied with one bant.

Not too sure what you meant by cheap, cuz 200 dollars is not cheap, and the cmc of some of your cards isnt cheap lol

Okay, it used to be cheap (sub $100), now after pulling all the stuff in booster packs that I've won in tourneys with this deck, it's kinda a bit far from there... lol

Well, if you want it to be cheap, remove the Temple Garden s, Thragtusk , and Garruk Relentless  Flip 's, that puts it sub $100. I used to run Odric, Master Tactician in place of garruk, Angel of Jubilation in place of thragtusk and the land just swap around.

What kind of turn does this win by? I'm guessing 5?

If you have the aggro in hand, it can guarantee a turn 4 kill (assuming they don't have tons of kill spells everywhere). However if you don't have the aggro, turn 5-6, but in the event you're facing someone with board wipers (Supreme Verdict /Terminus ), it easily transforms into a token spam deck where you just play a single creature (ie, Thraben Doomsayer , Mayor of Avabruck  Flip or Garruk Relentless  Flip ), keep spamming the tokens/boosting with Gavony Township and easily win that way.

I like what you're doing here, but i am wondering about the consistency. With so many different creatures, are you able to execute your attack the most efficient way every time? I'm just wondering why so many.

If you're interested, ive developed the fastest deck in standard, and it is Naya humans. I have turn 3'd a lot of people at tournaments, and it could be an interesting direction to go. I have a lot of analysis, and results of matches on the page if you're curious.

The Kessig Township is my signature deck.

Turn 3 wins all DAY!


T1: Champion of the Parish

T2: Burning-Tree Emissary + Lightning Mauler -- swing 7

T3: Thatcher Revolt -- swing 13 = Game.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. In my meta, the three prevalent decks are Human aggro (brought about because my deck was stomping everything, including control decks), RDW and splashes of control. I built this to be a bit more tailored to my meta, and for my meta it works wonders (getting 1st place for 5 straight Standard tourneys is pretty good if you ask me). It does well in other stores metas in my area, and I've always found it to be quite potent. The consistency is great, and aside from the occasional mana screw/flood, I have never ran into an issue with the deck.

You have quite a powerful deck there, though in my meta, t3 wins are nearly impossible due to the rampant number of creature decks, you can always count on your opponent having either blockers, or responses. With this deck I can generally pull off t5 wins with ease, by usually dropping a Zealous Conscripts to win, or just a brute force swing to completely wipe your opponents field for them to stay alive, while leaving you with ensured victory on the next swing.
