Ogoki Yes, good call! I actually added Benefaction last night- digging 5 deep and keeping both seems great.

@EpicBox75 You're welcome, I'm glad you like the list! Thanks for your comment.

I think adding blue is definitely possible, however I'd like to keep the deck to two colors for maximum consistency in the early game. If I did add blue, Champion of Wits might be a nice option as well.

Excellent points Aethos, depending on my local meta I'll definitely run a few copies of Field of Ruin. Cutting a Gearhulk is probably a good call as well. Wondering if Creeping Mold is a viable option... seems pretty slow though. Maybe Heroic Intervention?

Trivmvirate, good suggestion- I'm not sure how but I completely missed that card!I'll add Greenwheel Liberator to the list.

Hello! Just joined and is my first deck posting, so please forgive any formatting issues!

This is my attempt to find a home for some of the new cards from Rivals of Ixalan Ravenous Chupacabra and Journey to Eternity. I am trying to make this list as competitive as possible.

I plan to take this deck to my LGS Standard events over the coming season (1 per week or so) and will post updates, along with any changes I make.

I like this idea a lot. Maybe consider Curious Obsession to speed up the clock and keep your hand full? Also, there's no denying that Storm the Vault is a sweet card, but it might be a bit slow.

Definitely a fan of this banning, energy was fun for a while but things got a little ridiculous. I feel Ramunap Red was also too strong so this should make for a more diverse standard environment. Give some other brews a chance!

A few thing I'm pondering:

Appreciate the feedback wakawakawaka! Thrashing Brontodon was an excellent suggestion, I love the 3/4 body and being able to hit enchantments is great. Added to the maybeboard, probably a solid sideboard piece. My concerns with the card are:

  • The mana cost (wanted a more reliable turn 3 play in a pinch, since I feel that being stuck with only -1/-1 creatures in hand early without being able to drop another creature first is really bad).

  • No etb trigger.

  • Paying to activate its sac ability, while cheap, is a cost and could interfere with early ramp.

  • Having 4 toughness can be a drawback when you want to slam Journey on a creature and then peg it with two -1/-1 counters and kill it.
