New Standard Deck Building
Back Story: I had been thinking of ideas for potential articles to write before the playlet tournament, and I came up with a couple candidates of some really “sweet” decks. After several days of little sleep, this past friday I received a challenge that I could not build a good deck utilizing Karametra, God of Harvest. I promptly accepted the challenge and built the deck that very night. Find below my GW Midrange list. After the list I go over card choices, how I was able to effectively build around Karametra, deck-tech against the major archetypes of the format, and why I feel the deck is positioned well for what I perceive to be the meta at the Playset Tournament.
This "Back to Basics" article is about how this deck plans on attacking the format. The primary goal is to have game against the three major archetypes of the meta.
Part of building a good deck is that you are able to keep yourself in all matchups and play well to steal a few extra wins throughout the course of the day. I expect the early unsolved meta to have lots of Aggro and Midrange decks, as they are usually the best choices for a new format. I think this list has a good game against both of these archetypes and gets even better post sideboard.
Its time to be doing some hardcore testing with the full Journey Into Nyx spoiler released. I suggest you spend as much time as possible here at GP to tune your deck and get some good testing in.
See you around!
