Been playing competitively since Khans of Tarkir standard, where my brewed Mardu Midrange won me my first major tournament! Ever since then I love to play tier 2 decks in standard, usually because they’re the most fun.

Oh man Leyline Tyrant seems good here. Any extra red mana from klothys would stick around.

Oh yeah that’s a spicy list.

I would build your own brew utilizing Klothys mostly as a supplemental finisher in something like a Jund midrange build.

I wouldn’t focus on building up your grave by milling, the deck will naturally fill both graves with kill spells and creatures.

I also can’t think of a single instance where removing counters with Heartless Act is better than just straight up killing that creature. Do you have any examples?

Yorion Doom Foretold decks have been running rampant and run all sorts of enchantments, so Feed the Swarm also serves as a hedge against those decks.

Your life total is a resource. Whether you have 10 life, or 1 life, it doesn’t matter until you have 0 life.

There’s a reason Thoughtseize costs as much as it does. Same for dark confidant.

Learn to utilize your life total as a resource.

What makes Heartless Act better than Feed the Swarm other than it’s instant speed? I would much rather have an unconditional removal spell that costs me a little bit of life, since we’re a creature based deck that looks to tap out every turn anyways. No real need for instant speed interaction in this format, there’s no combo decks.

Oh and Disenchant isn’t a very good card. Not every deck plays enchantment so sometimes it’s just a dead card. Feed the Swarm is similar, and since you’re a life gain deck you don’t really care about the life loss clause.

I play a deck pretty similar to this one, except my deck is centered around clerics specifically. I play Archfiend's Vessel, Speaker of the Heavens, Cleric of Life's Bond, Taborax, Hope's Demise, Orah, Skyclave Hierophant

As far as your removal suite,

Dire Tactics is good for your colors, Bloodchief's Thirst is probably the best removal in standard right now, and Hagra Mauling  Flip doubles as a land so you can just take out a swamp for it!

There is so much upside to Bonecrusher Giant and Brazen Borrower. This is also the perfect deck for them. The latter is the best tempo card printed in awhile. Definitely add some of these dudes.

While you’re correct, Ornithopter in a Steel Overseer deck has a much higher upside than Ajani’s Welcome in this deck.

That’s just my two cents. This deck doesn’t look to puke it’s hand out onto the table, and instead opts for a slower, more grindy game. Grindy decks don’t want bad top decks.

I disagree entirely about Ajani's Welcome, yes it triggers your Pridemate immediately making it a 3/3, but it also costs an entire card and doesn’t do much else. Drawing one of these on anything except your opening hand is just bad beats.

Same for soulmender, it just doesn’t do enough to deserve a spot here. Gaining one life is not particularly impressive, even if it does trigger your dudes.

I do think that fountain of renewal is good, since you can sac it to draw a card if you need too. It also guarantees life gain, so it’s better than Ajani’s welcome, which requires creatures to trigger.

Which escape cards are broken in particular? The only one that saw a good amount of play was Uro. The spider with escape saw some sideboard play against the rogue decks.

Well every meta has to contain some decks, right? At least those ones aren’t incredibly oppressive.

No offense my guy but taking a fictional character, humanizing it, THEN sexualizing it, is not tasteful no matter what.

Also yeah nudity is not okay, children play at these game shops and at tournaments. Keep your rule34 google searches in your computer.

I second buying a nice bottle of Crown Royal and using the bag you get from it. They are incredibly high quality and look really good.

Said on How do you …...

#16

I think this is a pretty unintuitive way of building a deck, no offense.

Every deck archetype has different things it’s trying to do. Mono white doesn’t need ramp. Mono green doesn’t need so much removal, etc.

Decide if your deck is meant to be aggro, Midrange, or control. If you’re going for aggro then average cmc of 2.5 is good, but for midrange or control average cmc should be closer to 3-4.

Having these baseline “rules” for building your deck hinders it a lot more than you might think!
