Naya Midrange (MTG Standard)

Discussion in 'Rate My Deck' started by Kamotz, Nov 18, 2012.

    This deck evolved very recently as I shifted my Bant deck from my desired Midrange to the admittedly better-situated Control. I realized that Naya had all the shenanigans I wanted to pull off in Bant (Resto-Thragtusk/Armada Wurm with Trostani) and the added bonus of cards like Thundermaw Hellkite and some targeted removal. So with that, I was able to acquiesce and commit to Bant Control while secretly cobbling together ideas for this deck in my spare non-Bant time.

    Right now the mana base is a little...janky, but after several test games, I've pretty much figured it out and got it to work. Gatecrash's Shocklands will certainly make it easier, but it's still surprisingly solid.

    The Sideboard, obviously, isn't a sideboard. Rather, it's a list of any and all cards that I even might consider playing is now a real Sideboard.

    I've updated the list with the actual sideboard. I think it's made more to handle control decks, which are running rampant in this format.

    Question: What's your usual target for Cavern of Souls?

    Cavern: calling whatever I have in my hand that needs to NOT be countered. Beast, Wurm, Angel, or Dragon, usually. Though sometimes I might use it for Huntmaster (human). Not as likely though, unless I'm boarding in Thalia and/or Zealous Conscripts.
