The BEST Selesnya Deck Ever

Standard Aggro GW (Selesnya)



I wanted to try and bring attention to my Selesnya deck without sounding cocky, but seeing as there's lots of other Selesnya decks out there, the cocky title was born.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions, or any other input is appreciated. This deck went 3-0 on it's first FNM and I'd like to keep it that way haha.

So far the record for games is 21-4.


This week I played this list with Strangleroot Geist replacing Loxodon Smiter seeing as i don't have them.

Round one: 2-0 Izzet AggroI can only assume it was aggro because I never saw any instants and he kept laying chump blockers... which meant nothing to my Rancors

Round two; 2-1 Mono White WeenieLost the first game despite getting her to 1 life haha. Brought in removal and Sigarda, Host of Herons and that was that.

Round three; 2-0 Izzet ControlBonfires are annoying but I was still able to overwhelm him and once again Sigarda was an MVP here.


I dont think you NEED farseek. I'd add in 4 Strangleroot geist of Loxodon smiter.

Of course it's gonna win, it costs $300 (that isn't even an exaggeration)!! You should try to make one with a similar strategy that is under $50.

I agree. Farseek seems redundant with pilgrims and elves AND 24 land. Strangleroot geist is probably better for the job. I'd recommend taking out an o-ring for a rancor maindeck as you always want reach, and probably putting two orings in your sideboard, taking out the sundering growths.

8 mana elves along with farseek seems like way too much acceleration for a deck with 24 lands. If you accelerate turn 1, you want a nice 3 drop for turn 2. Oblivion Ring is not this card, and neither is Silverblade Paladin. Definitely think this would play better with Loxodon Smiter in place of the Farseek.

So I threw in the 4 Loxodon Smiter s. Hopefully they will help me keep up the pressure during the late game.

Also I took your advice on the rancors and o-rings, artic wind and then changed up the removal in the sideboard

Fiend Hunter would alsop help with early game controlling, and although he can only target creatures he makes a great defender (dat 1/3) while you ramp! He can also be handy late game to remove threats to your big creatures (death-touchers, big defenders, other big creatures, etc.).

Playing a similar deck. I'd recommend mainboarding, but at the very least sideboarding, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , and maybe replace those SB Garruks with Triumph of Ferocity . It's a more constant and consistent card advantage. Love the deck, though.

Garruk has helped me so dramatically so many times, it'd be hard for me to see myself not using him. He comes in a lot especially against control, it helps me recover from wipes and keeps my hand full. Also, I do really like Thalia and if I was playing maybe a quicker version of this deck I might run her, but late game I don't think she's very significant. Thanks for the suggestions though. I appreciate it.

You can't call it Selesnya just because it is green white. Selesnya is all about tokens, but it is still a nice deck.

@V3xGambit: All the guild/shard names (from Ravnica and Alara, respectively) have become ways to describe the colors of your deck without having to list them. We're still missing five Magic-given names of the three-colors and all of the four colors (I just like to identify them by the missing color eg. (non/un/anti)-green is B/R/U/W), but there are fan-given names (Junk, America) for some.

That said, you're kinda right. When I think of Selesnya as a guild, I think tokens.

Check out my deck and tell me what you think Selesnya Deck

I would like it to be more populate but it just seems that you cannot compete with a populate deck.

This deck is good but it doesn't have much to do with Selesnya.

I playtested, but there weren't many "selesnya-esk" cards in it... add more tokens and stuff...
