I took this to my fnm and went 4-0 and won the whole thing. The deck ran really smoothly, and the manabasewas consistently good.

First of all we have 12 one-drops in a playset of Thraben Inspector, Town Gossipmonger , and Inventor's Apprentice because this is an aggro deck, and also alot of the tribal synergies here are much better if you have a large board, eg. Always Watching , Thalia's Lieutenant, Metallic Mimic.

As for my Two drops I have mostly large impact buffs for all my humans, but I also included Glory-Bound Initiate because it synergises well with Always Watching and also Hanweir Garrison works well with Metallic Mimic.

At the top of the curve I have Always Watching as an anthem effect but also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar in the side against control which can be an anthem,a token producer and a 5/5 indestructible beater which are all super helpful abilities.

I like this deck a LOT.

+1 from me.

With your Sideboard notes, I find it really helps you in a match if you write them in this format:


2x Glory-Bound Initiate
2x Metallic Mimic


4x Forsake the Worldly

You are allowed to refer to electronic notes at FNM, so you can just whip your smart phone out to take a quick look, and it's easy to see which cards to take out and sub in.

If you want to keep each card to one line, put < br > without any spaces, at the end of the card name.

You wanted Sideboard ideas against #1 Black Zombies.

In your colours I would suggest:

Hope that helps.

This deck needs a better name.

The one it has is kind of generic.

May 21, 2017 9:57 a.m.

Calispotato says... #7

Thanks! (Also I'll try a new name)

Argy says... #8

If I could be so bold - why not just Amonkhet Humans?

May 21, 2017 12:07 p.m.

Argy says... #9

Or Bloody Humans, because nobody has that one.

May 21, 2017 12:09 p.m.

Calispotato says... #10

yep :P now its a normal name.

May 21, 2017 1:43 p.m.

Argy says... #11

Normal isn't always better.

Let's think outside the square.

I was wondering whether they could be "Pink Humans" because Red + White = Pink

Calispotato says... #12

What I can take away from this is I'm bad at naming things

May 21, 2017 7:40 p.m.

Argy says... #13

I don't think so.

I like what you've come up with now.

Very surreal.

Thanks, it took me a minute

Nice work outracing Marvel.

That's the tack I'm now taking with my Minotaurs, Post-Sideboard.

Calispotato says... #16

Good idea, that seems to be the best way to kill that deck, what do you think about hanwier battlements?

May 26, 2017 1:17 p.m.

Argy says... #17

Calispotato I absolutely LOVE Hanweir Battlements, but I wouldn't go with more than three copies.

It has certainly let me get the drop on people with my Minotaurs.

Calispotato says... #18

cool, i'll give it a try.

May 26, 2017 2:13 p.m.

Argy says... #19

Get used to people telling you that you should also run Hanweir Garrison.

You shouldn't.

May 26, 2017 2:16 p.m.

Calispotato says... #20

(i am)

May 26, 2017 2:28 p.m.

Argy says... #21

Oh well, if you were already running it that's OK.
