Description

This is a Bant Standstill control deck. It's something I put together sort of modeled after a standard awaken deck I have. I haven't ever tried to make a deck quite like this before so any help is appreciated. Right now I think I man need some more Manlands in this deck. I haven't playtested it much at all.

Pretty simple deck I think, ideally have out Standstill as soon as possible, maybe tutor for it with Enlightened Tutor if need be, and control what spells they do cast with Counterspell and Scatter to the Winds. Snapcaster Mage is in here to add the ability to counter even more stuff (I don't think you can activate awaken costs from the graveyard, correct?). Swords to Plowshares is for creatures that they're able to get out. I may add some Path to Exiles if need be.

Urban Evolution is good to throw down more lands and keep up a hand.

Voidslime and Disallow are neat counters.

Looks neat, but if it's a Legacy deck, all those shocklands need to be actual dual lands. Plus, I'm sure some amount of Force of Wills would also be handy. It's a neat first-build for a Legacy deck, though!

I see your point, I'm not exactly sure the budget for this deck, but I may be able to get some dual lands for it. I had shock lands in it right now to hold the place until I'm sure I can get OG duals. I checked out at TCG and swapped the shocks for duals and it seems much more affordable than I originally thought.

And I went with Scatter to the Winds since it has an Awaken cost, I'm trying to see if I can make the land creatures the primary win cause. If it doesn't seem to work how I want I have thought about adding things like Martial Coup, Worldspine Wurm, Entreat the Angels, etc. etc.

Thank you for the feedback, friend!

Just so you know Tundra just dropped by about 80 bucks soo now would be a good time to pick them up also I suggest Noble Hierarch for ramp and True-Name Nemesis because right now you're creature base is by far the weakest part of the deck right now

Vendilion Clique would be good. You can even use it on yourself if you need to.
