WiP Standard deck. Since I scrapped my Spirit Delver deck (mainly cause my friends told me to make a real Standard deck) I had some cards and lands to create a nice U/W control deck, since U/W is my favourite combination.
I really like this deck, since you always seem to be ahead of your opponents (unless they also play control).
Feel free to comment of youve got any questions or suggestions!
Played at a local Monday event with a standard 4 round swiss, and it went... pretty ok, I guess, since my Sideboard was pretty non-existent.
First match : Jund, lost 0-2. After getting mana screwed game one, he managed to get game 2 thanks to Sire Of Insanity and a lot of Huntmaster of the Fells Flip and Olivia Voldaren . I had no chance against this matchup...
Second match : White angel/human deck, won 2-0 Nothing special to say, after turn four, I managed to turn the game around in my favor both games (thank you Supreme Verdict and Terminus !), but he managed to get me down to around 3 life left both games.
Third match : Maze deck, draw 1-1 After a quick win for me game 1, he managed to stall me and collect gates with 3 Maze's End which ended the game quickly. He managed to hold out long enough in game 3 for the round to end before i got to kill him... too bad, since he had about 2 rounds left before he would have lost.
Fourth match : Esper, lost 1-2 I had a very lucky first game, since he got mana screwed and I managed to miracle an Entreat the Angels on turn four, which kept on bashing in. In Game 2 and 3 however, he out-controlled me totally and milled me out both times.
It was really fun, and Ive tweaked the sideboard a bit and replaced some cards in the deck.
Snappy yes, geist is not this deck. Snappy shouldn't loose too much as he is generally good, and remember, you have like 4 months till rotation. Make the most of having him in the deck! Just 2 would greatly increase your chances of winning. Hvae you heard of snappy beats as a wincon? It's surprisingly good! A ten turn clock if you control well :P
