Magical Monday 9.29.14

A few weeks back i talked about how my wife wanted a standard deck “of her own” so to do battle. Back then she wanted a “Chandra” deck which i took as a big spell build. Then this last week Khans went out and she won her first draft at the release FNM winning out with a big monster Temur deck. I said it once and i will say it again but if you get to the mid/end game and force the opponent to answer 5/5 after 6/7 sooner or later they will just not have an answer and you will be able to win out.

I drafted a mean agro mardu deck where i was able to beat down faster then the fatty deck most of the time; but the games where my deck gave me one or two to many lands and not a spell were not good times. Welcome to the on back foot train, your direct ride out of the prize pool.

Anyway, drafts aside her fire as been rekindled for “us” to build her own standard deck. But she is now in love with the idea of building around the Temur clan. We went to our local shop and bought some singles. Well she mostly bought singles and i mostly bought up sets of the new dual/life lands just to have them around. We got to work putting something together with all the cards she liked and bought and it was not few good. We have been making tweaks and it is getting better and better. It has a workable shell and she might get her cake. Mean while i have kept tweaking the list i put out the other week mainly do to my desire to make Oracle of Bones seem good enough to win. 😉

So here is my updated list.

4 Elvish Mystic
4 Rattleclaw Mystic
4 Boon Satyr
4 Oracle of Bones
1-2 Nylea, God of the Hunt
0-1 Nylea’s Disciple
2 Dragon-Style Twins

4 Lightning Strike
4 Stoke the Flames
1 See the Unwritten
4 Become Immense

4 Xenagos, the Reveler

4 Wooded Foothills
4 Temple of Abandon
2 Rugged Highlands
3 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
4 Mountain
6 Forest

I really like how a we can do 20 damage from left field, Dragon-Style Twins is stupid good and Become Immense is just well immense. There is some Oracle lovns’ in See the Unwritten as well as Become Immense. A turn 4 9/7 haste for a turn is real good also.

I am not sure how many Nylea vs her Disciple we need. One way or another there are 3-4 Disciples in the sideboard. Speaking of the sideboard i think that 4 Anger of the Gods are a must as well as some number of Arbor Colossus and maybe Crater’s Claws even. That card feels real good also.

Other then i am thinking about going and seeing about trying my hand at this year’s tcgplayer states i am out of here if i am going to get this out on Monday.
