Junk Constrictor a.k.a. The Trash Compactor

Standard BGW (Abzan, Junk) Competitive Midrange

puhalakaust


Description

This deck plays as a midrange that wins via slowly but surely overpowering the opponent. Spot removal helps to ensure that youre getting the advantage in combat. Cards like Greenbelt Rampager, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, Longtusk Cub, Aether Hub, Walking Ballista, Verdurous Gearhulk, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, etc. all synergize with winding contrictor to make some pretty beastly creatures for you. This deck is quite simply a Junk version of the typically Golgari/Jund constrictor decks. I like the addition of Thalia, Heretic Cathar in the main as well as access to Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Anguished Unmaking(even if it is a strictly worse version of Unlicensed Disintegration) and Sram's Expertise that we get from our white splash. So far the deck plays well against Copycat and Tower decks. The mirror is a bit of a grind that i have a tendency to lose out on unfortunately. The curve of this deck plays well into the higher drop cards assuming you hit your land drops and i have been working on lowering the curve without losing too much value. I play this deck on mtgo and i am considering entering a few leagues with it so suggestions for improvement are welcomed and wanted! +1 if you like it!

Updates

Decided to add green for Winding Constrictor because synergy is a dope aspect of magic! also, this addition allows for some card advantage via Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and some extra power via Longtusk Cub. Greenbelt Rampager and Aether Hub make sure weve always got a bit of energy to throw around and were off to the races!

I think you should take out Sram's Expertise for another Tireless Tracker. TT is possibly the best card for grindy decks in the entire catalog of cards; Sram's Ex is good, but as a 1-of you're pretty likely to draw it late in the game when you've already played out your 3-drops.
