Prime Speaker B...UG?

Standard*

jwells Score: 3


Description

I love Prime Speaker and I wanted to get a chance to use her, but not in all those bant decks like everyone else. Inspiration from Sam Black. Made a few tweaks, overall, I really like it. Feedback appreciated.

I decided to take out 4x Quirion Dryad for 2x Swamp and 2x forest for a more secure mana base.

With a bunch of 5 drops, does this run well with only 20 lands? I really like this deck. It looks really fun! Finally someone is using nightveil specter

I get your point. Ive always just had this habit of only running 20 lands. but I do get screwed sometimes. I'll try to up it a bit. I just don't know what to take out and I don't want to go over 60. I'm glad you like it though!

This looks like a really enjoyable deck, however, my first thoughts are is that it is quite slow, possibly some more ramp may help get your threats out sooner. The Farseek are great but it feels like you need more. Possibly try Arbor Elf or maybe one of the keyrunes. Just a thought as this feels like a good aggro deck would beat this before it got a chance to wind up. Hope this helps :)

Thanks. I see your point and I have definitely thought about this. The only problem is that I only have 10 forests. So I'm not sure how much ramp this would actually add. Especially since I would be wanting to play the nighthawk or specter on turn 2.

I just feel like this deck is on the edge of being good, but I can't quite figure out what it needs.

You can use Arbor Elf to untap Breeding Pool and Overgrown Tomb .

I think you should drop 2 Syncopate for two more lands. I am like you. I always ran only 20 lands because I wanted to have a bunch of spells. After getting shat on over and over again I decided to change my ways. So instead of running 33%, I've upped it to around 40% and now my deck are a lot more consistent.

Also, I've noticed that around 25 lands works really well for you average CMC. You would consistently hit your land drops each turn almost rendering your Farseek s moot. Just a thought. I took my Farseek s out because I had the land I need about 95% of the time.
