Update based on a recent list that place well at a StarCityGames Open:


After a dissapointing 2-2 at FNM, I decided to change this up and move towards a more aggressive deck. I lost the first 2 rounds to top tier decks, Naya humans and Esper Control. I found this deck was too slow versus both. Couldn't stabilize versus aggro and couldn't beat control fast enough (although the Esper player, who recently won a Grand Prix, admitted he got two nut draws). I did however, get one dream attack in with Rancor on a Loxodon Smiter bonded to Silverblade Paladin for 12 double strike on turn 3. My victories were against a bad Vampire deck and sorta budget Boros. Craterhoof Behemoth was pretty much worthless the whole night and was never able to attack unless I was already winning. I've moved the deck a more aggro build to battle this Meta. One add I'm really interested in seeing is Blind Obedience. I expect it to really slow down aggro decks and even help push through many of my own attacks. Multiple extort triggers are also relevent, as I need them to get the last few points of damage against the control decks and the ability to last at least on more turn against mid-range. Thanks for reading!

What about a couple of Overruns? If you winning condition is the Craterhoof Behemoth, maybe a sorcery with a similar effect will leads to more game-ending scenarios?

Sadly, this is meant to be a standard tournament deck, wigginlll. Overrun isn't available for use due to that, as it wasn't reprinted in M13.

Awe shucks! I should have noticed it was "standard." I don't play anything but casual so yeah, my bad :)

Predatory Rampage is a similar card to Overrun

Revenge of the Hunted? Sure it's only on 1 creature, but it lets the rest through. Also if the 1 creature has.. oh I don't know..Rancor and doublestrike for whatever reason.. Not sure you need Farseek with the amount of mana dudes you have. If you can get them another couple of Sunpetal Grove will help consistency issues. Not sold on the Nearheath Pilgrim personally. I'd maybe go Centaur Healer. It's a nice with the Silverblades (as are Pilgrims I guess..)

Nice deck, all the best.

More mana dorks. Thragtusk Thragtusk Thragtusk.I played a similar list with 4 sigardas and 3 increasing savagery.Use 2 gavony township. You can cast turn 3 five drops with mana dorks full. Smiter into Sigarda is a win against most decks without board wipes.
