Magical Monday 2.2.2015

Earlier today i popped into my local game store, to check in and see if there was anything i needed to take care of on the website and/or the like. And while i was there i was asked what i liked in standard for this weekend.

With out a second thought i said my red/white deck. I feel that it got a ton of cards with Fate. But i talked about it a lot last week. But then i said i was drawn to the idea of the Temur Ascendancy Combo deck that was “found” this last weekend. I feel that my Yisan deck could be warped into such a deck with ease and i also think that i could keep Yisan and his silver bullets in the sideboard for when it is the best deck.

So after an afternoon of looking at lists and debating on how i could best make this shell my own i have the following:

3x Elvish Mystic
2x Sylvan Caryatid
4x Voyaging Satyr
1x Sage of Hours

3x Courser of Kruphix

4x Karametra’s Acolyte

1x Nylea, God of the Hunt
2x Polukranos, World Eater
4x Temur Sabertooth

1x Mistcutter Hydra
4x Genesis Hydra
1x Surrak Dragonclaw
1x Sandsteppe Mastodon

1x Crater’s Claws
3x Singing Bell Strike
4x Temur Ascendancy

3x Forest
2x Mana Confluence
1x Mountain
4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
2x Temple of Abandon
3x Temple of Mystery
4x Wooded Foothills
3x Yavimaya Coast

So i have to assume you have an idea as to how this goes off but let me try to run it down in a nut shell.

Temur Ascendancy gives haste, untapper/Nykthos or Karametra’s Acolyte (for 7) + Singing Bell Strike or Temur Sabertooth equals lots of mana. All the mana in the world in fact. Then you can use things like Genesis Hydra to play any number of guys until you have a killing team or one trample Mistcutter Hydra at 100/100 for the solo win.

The Sage of Hours + Sandsteppe Mastodon allow you to talk all the turns to try and find the combo if you have a Temur Sabertooth and lots of mana but no Ascendancy but really it is a way to counter a Ætherspouts. I will go again thank you.

Overall, this is my kind of deck. Complected with lots of right and wrong plays that i can try and use to out play my opponents. Best of all other then the Temur Sabertooths and the Sandsteppe Mastodon this deck was totally standard legal a few weeks ago and no one saw it.

Thoughts?
