Casual Greek Deck

Deck Help forum

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

Up in the top corner, there's a folder icon. One of the options there is Create Deck. Put your decklists together in that and post 'em here.

The best way to post is in either the {{deck-large:deck-name-here}} or {{deck:deck-name-here}} formats, using square brackets instead of curly brackets. The deck-large gives more information at a glance, but can break up the flow of a sentence.

Second suggestion, I'm seeing a lot of one-ofs in the lists. If you're going purely for flavor and appearance, that's not really a problem. If you want the deck to be used in a serious match, even casually, take out some of the single copies of cards and put in more copies of the most useful.

Above all, have fun!

Cool, thanks! I'll do just that. We don't go to FNM or tournaments or anything like that, just us playing at his kitchen table when me and my other friend goes over. But I do understand I put a lot of one-ofs in. Especially on the first two decks. Any suggestions on what specific cards to take out and what specific cards to increase the amount of?

That will be an easier question to answer once they're in a more complete decklist.

Next bit of advice, and one you mention: you don't have enough lands, especially for decks with more than 60 cards. Trim it down to 60, and aim for 40% land (24 in a 60-card deck).

Ok, I made the actual deck format and it does look nicer so thank you legendofa. Ok. I'll take a look at the decks tomorrow and do some more editing.
