Standard GW (Selesnya) Tokens Tribal

Gim


Description

Selesnya Cats with some added spice.

I would love any and all suggestions since I may start playing this at FNM.

Updates

This deck played extremely well at FNM and the Sunmare+Arcane combo really came in handy as I'll get into.

Round 1: vs. Rakdos Aggro (2-0)

Won both games only running four lands. Both games he flooded mana hard. Last game I cast Settle the Wreckage when he swung in for the kill and next turn cast Appeal on an Adorned Pouncer for a OHKO.

Round 2: vs. Vampire Swarm/Lifesteal? (2-0)

Both games I outpaced his token generation with Regal Caracal and swung hard with Pride Sovereign. Second game was close but Sunmare saved me with his indestructible horse tokens being able to squish pesky Gifted Aetherborn with no risk. Swung in for the kill with a double Appeal'd Sovereign.

Round 3: vs Pummeler (2-1)

First game was insane. I actually got the Sunmare+Arcane combo off and was able to use it and Caracal to stuff a 40/36 Pummeler with over 10 life to spare. Killed next turn. Second game I subbed in Gideon's Intervention and Spyglass. Drew one of each and stopped his board wipes and Pummeler but I drew no creatures and his 2 Hydras killed me quickly. Game 3 was nearly a perfect hand and I quickly overwhelmed him with 4/4 lifelink tokens.

Round 4: vs Mono-Black Aggro/Jank (0-2)

His deck was Aggro but it was some weird jank homebrew but it won him first place so whatever. Both games I drew none of the cards I needed and I even mulled down to 6 on game 2. I drew the worst case scenario hands both games. I believe this deck would be able to beat it easily with proper draws but thems the breaks.

Came in 2nd 3-1 (6W, 3L, 0D). Sunmare definitely earned its spot in this deck.

This may be out there, but for extra spice, you could splash blue with glacial fortress and add Arcane Adaptation to make your cats indestructible horses.
