Hey Gideon, Control Your F*ckin' Drakes!

Standard* Combo Competitive Control W/U (Azorius)

BubbleMatrix2357


Description

Drake Haven Control. Win-cons are Drakes and/or Gideon(s). I decided to go with Catalog over Pull from Tomorrow because it is strictly better for 3 mana (and better than Pull for 4 mana). The Fetid Pools are there just for more cycling, or blue mana if I'm in a pinch, and they can be revealed for Port Town too.

You don't have enough kill spells when I tested it. You kept up on drawing and then hit a massive land flood and didn't have enough value creatures or kill spells to keep up with my Drake Haven deck. I'd recommend taking out the Gideon's, you don't have a curve that supports him, and put in 3 Curator of Mysteries. Scrying before you cycle is such a powerful ability and it supports your deck better than Gids anyways

I'd like this more if it was all in on the Gideons. The big Gideon counts for the emblem from the smaller one. It seems like a strong interaction for Standard, especially after they just banned the combo.

Thanks Spazik007, yeah I was thinking that too as I was mowing the lawn today after putting this deck up haha! I like the Drakes as more protection for Gideon as well.

The Gideon and drakes plan is cool, but I agree with the first commenter that you lack enough control, may I recommend Cast Out Spontaneous Mutation Declaration in Stone or Stasis Snare

Thanks GrayAlchemyst, but I do already have 4 Cast Out, 4 Censor, 3 Forsake the Worldly, 3 Immolating Glare, 4 Negate, and a 1 Fumigate in the MB. Plus more Fumigate, Authority of the Consuls, Scatter to the Winds, and Engulf the Shore in my SB. And I would probably go with Thopter Arrest over Stasis Snare too, as it is more versatile, although without Flash. Seems like a lot of control to me haha! But I may look into the Spontaneous Mutation for my SB. Thanks again!

No problem I missed the four cast out which is a huge playset of cards. And was worried about spot removal, but I was totally wrong.

Hoooo-weeee BubbleMatrix2357 this decklist is giving me the vapors! Since you're already into double white; why not run Gisela, the Broken Blade? Perhaps drop an Immolating Glare and a Hieroglyphic Illumination to slot in a pair of that beautiful 4 cmc 4/3 Flying, First Strike, and Lifelink angel of awesomeness? This deck "rocks the party", if you will, but looks to be a bit slow to get off the ground... see what I did there? Stuttering an aggressive strategy with a 4/3 Lifelink could help this deck to spread it's wings. Either way you've earned an upvote!!
