Magical Monday 5.26.14

Wow, i realize now that i took most of last week off of writing. I was not feeling well and just didn’t write anything exciting or fit for public reading. Today however that is going to change because it is Magical Monday and i have new deck lists!

In one of my Mtg Facebook groups i said that i was working on a B/W Constellation agro list for block and there was SOME interest. But then when i posted the list it was all crickets and i was not happy.

List 1: Block B/W Constellation

Mans: 33
3 Hero of Iroas
4 Pain Seer
2 Aegis of the Gods
4 Brain Maggot
4 Nyx-Fleece Ram
4 Underworld Coinsmith
2 Athreos, God of Passage
4 Grim Guardian
4 Spiteful Returned
2 Eidolon of Countless Battles
not mans: 7
2 Thoughtseize
2 Hero’s Downfall
3 Banishing Light
Lands: 20

This is running on the back of all the constellation triggers mostly the strength of Underworld Coinsmith + Grim Guardian. We don’t interact a ton 6 steal a card effects and 5 removal spells but we are very willing to attack if we find Athreos. i could even see cutting the 2 Aegis of the Gods for 2 more Athreos but i didn’t want to get stuck with blanks if i drew too many gods.

Okay list 2: standard B/G Constellation

Mans 27
4 Brain Maggot
4 Lotleth Troll
4 Courser of Kruphix
2 Boon Satyr
3 Herald of Torment
2 Pharika, God of Affliction
4 Eidolon of Blossoms

Not Mans 14
2 Bow of Nylea
2 Strength from the Fallen

4 Thoughtseize
2 Hero’s Downfall
4 Abrupt Decay

This list i am less sure about. I think it covers most of the field fairly well. But i saw Sam Black play something starting along the same lines really working Strength from the Fallen and i think that i might want to really work that line some more. If i did that deck would look a lot more like this.

Okay list 3: standard B/G Constellation Combo????

Mans 31
4 Deathrite Shaman
4 Elvish Mystic
4 Brain Maggot
4 Satyr Wayfinder
4 Herald of Torment
4 Nyx Weaver
3 Pharika, God of Affliction
4 Eidolon of Blossoms

Not Mans 9
4 Commune with the Gods
1 Bow of Nylea
4 Strength from the Fallen

20 lands

And run more like a combo deck, land an evasive man or clear away their ability to block with non-game winning triggers of Strength and then set up for the blowout. Sam was running Renowned Weaver which was fairly sweet. Another 1 drop that fills the graveyard while firing off Strength at instant speed. I could see them replacing my Brain Maggots but it is hard to remove all interaction….

Although, cutting Maggots could be the right call. After all we are just looking for a evasive fatty to carry the game home. I could see pulling the 4 maggots for 2 fatties (Master of the Feast) and 2 Weavers.

Sorry again for the lack of posts last week, this week will be better.
