Return to Standard - Gruul Energy

Standard Combo Midrange




Hello everyone. I have been on somewhat of a hiatus from playing magic for a while but now I really want to continue playing and I have decided to go back to standard. Anyway I've done some research on what decks are currently being played the most and, to me, the Aetherworks Marvel deck seemed to be the most interesting. And since I am a Gruul type of fellow, I landed at this decision. For now this deck will probably be pretty cookie cutter as I have not played with this yet, nor do I have all of the cards for it. However hopefully, over time and also your suggestions, and maybe with the release of Aether Revolt around the corner, I can make some adjustments. So yeah, feel free to comment your suggestions. And as always, thanks in advance guys.


Well Emrakul, the Promised End had the ban hammer fall on her so I guess for now I will add Nahiri, the Harbinger and Combustible Gearhulk until I find better additions, but maybe they are the best I have available to me, not sure yet.

So how about a 1-of Exquisite Archangel? It would be better if she had flash but she kind of does with Aetherworks Marvel. I know this wouldn't help very often considering there is only one copy of the card but at the same time I wouldn't need it very often. Thoughts on this card?

I wouldn't add Exquisite Archangel for a couple reasons. First off, she is out of your colors. She would always be a dead draw. Second, if revealed her and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, most of the time your going with Ceaseless Hunger.

I will say that Standard is still kinda in a tizzy trying to fill the void that Emrakul, the Promised End left in GR Energy decks. I'm not much of an energy player, and I've never used Aetherworks, so I'm afraid I can't give any real meaningful advice aside from that. But, there should be some creative things coming from the community pretty soon.

Maybe an Aetherwind Basker or two? There really isnt much you can replace emrakul with, unless you wanted to add black for some odd reason and go Noxious Gearhulk
