Description

Hello Ladies and Gents!! Now that Marvel is banned (thank god) it is time to release my new strategy for standard.... JUND ENERGY! This deck definitely feels more midrange than aggro but it can definitely play like aggro too if you hit the right drops. This deck is owned and currently being tested, I will post an update with records the next time I go to play standard.

CREATURES

  • Glint-Sleeve Siphoner is a solid drop. A 2/1 with menace can be easily buffed for lategame, or be an early game problem if you can disrupt their creatures. But it's best part is the draw it allows, and energy is relatively easy to acquire so just watch the life late game.
  • Greenbelt Rampager can drop as early as turn 2 if you turn 1 Attune with Aether. Is a great early game blocker against agro decks and just needs one +1 counter to activate Rhonas.
  • Longtusk Cub seems like such a small threat that can ram hard late game if you have energy piled or just keep buffing it. Overall solid card
  • Rhonas the Indomitable is great. he can become active turn 4 or 5 but his ability is great when you need to push in damage with an already buffed creature. He just adds a huge threat to the board if he gets active and makes your opponents focus on him.
  • Rishkar, Peema Renegade is another great 3 drop. He can buff your creatures which can activate Rhonas, or allow for that last bit of mana you need if your not drawing the right colors.
  • Sylvan Advocate in my opinion is a better Grim Flayer. It is easy to get the 6+ land ability and pairs great with Hissing Quagmire. Just an early game card that turns into a late game threat.
  • Verdurous Gearhulk is great late game. He adds so much power to the board late and is a threat himself by being a 4/4 with trample.
  • Voltaic Brawler is a great 2 drop and pairs so well with Glint-Sleeve. You can swing for 6 turn 4 with them by using Glint's energy from attacking to be Voltaic's buff.

SORCERY

INSTANT

  • Fatal Push is a must have removal spell as it is crucial to stopping early aggro decks. Dont be afraid to trade a small unimportant creature to take out one of their big hitters.
  • Unlicensed Disintegration is another great kill spell, it's additional bonus isn't triggered that often but it can hit bigger targets later in the game unlike Lightning and Push.
  • Harnessed Lightning is another great kill. You get a decent amount of energy and if you store it up then you can just hit their creature with a greater mana cost than 4.

PLANESWALKER

  • Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is great in this deck. originally I had her side boarded but that changed fast. She just seems like a more versatile Rishkar right now. For 3 I can drop a 0/1 when she enters and then once I have a strong creature base on turn 4 I can bump then all with a +1/+1, and the next turn do the same. Or if I need an army of blockers that I don't care about, her tokens do the trick!
  • Chandra, Flamecaller is great late-game because she can add power to the board that your opponents are forced to deal with, as well as if you have an empty hand or top deck a land you can get an extra draw. Finally her minus X is great against zombie decks because she can board wipe them, but our creatures are usually big enough to have a couple key one survive.

SIDEBOARD

So if you are going against Mardu vehicles , you want to have answers to those artifacts, so currently I am switching out:1 Harnessed Lightning, 1 Fatal Push, 1 Rishkar, Peema Renegade, 3 Greenbelt Rampager and for 2 Heart of Kiran, 2 Manglehorn, and 2 Dissenter's Deliverance. Besides that you might just need to tweak creatures or instants based off your own meta.

When Facing Zombies and also Boros Exert I am currently switching out:3 Unlicensed Disintegration, and 1 Glint-Sleeve Siphoner,for 3 Heroic Intervention, and 1 Hazoret the Fervent.

Besides that I sideboard appropriately based off local brews, but really those are the 4 main decks I continuously play against at my LGS.

Thank you all so much for spending your time reading and helping out. Suggestions are always welcome!!! I would finally like to give a huge shout out to Argy the deck god who really helped me out with this deck!

This deck works very well. +1 from me.

I was skeptical about Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, but the menace helped to get damage through.

The only thing I would consider changing is Lambholt Pacifist  Flip instead of Scrapheap Scrounger.

A lot of people are now packing Magma Spray against Scrapheap Scrounger.

Lambholt Pacifist  Flip gives you an early blocker, and is easy to Transform to put Rhonas the Indomitable online.

With your Sideboard, I'd take out Chandra, Torch of Defiance for Chandra, Flamecaller. Her board wipe is useful vs Zombie decks.

The rest of the Sideboard looks great, but you may need to adjust it depending on your local meta.

Argy by taking out Scrapheap ScroungerI think I need to remove or at the very least sideboard Unlicensed Disintegration as its 3 damage will probably never happen, So is it worth main boarding Heroic Intervention or adding in another Fatal Push Harnessed Lightning and then a mainboard Chandra, Flamecaller to fill the 3 slots?

No, leave Unlicensed Disintegration.

Even if you don't get the 3 damage bonus, it is still a great card.

No worries.

It's an impressive deck with some fresh ideas.

You should start featuring it, as it deserves some votes.

Thank you! I am just sick of seeing Marvel and Mardu so I wanted to figure out a new way to take control of standard. I just need some feature tokens but will probably just get those today! but that means a lot coming from you!
