After I 4-0′d last time with BW Tokens, I decided it was time to fold and finally finish out my playset of Garruk Relentless. The reasoning was that I only had a few weeks before I had to start buying Dark Ascension cards, and I wanted to finish out having all of the important Innistrad cards before I needed to buy more planeswalkers and mythics. In addition, I figured it would be a good time to showcase the last big deck from Innistrad-only Block Constructed: GW Tokens.
But then I decided that didn’t make much sense. Token decks aren’t going anywhere after all, and I just showed y’all a Token deck. I figured it was time for something a little different before we head on to different waters.
So I decided to rock this crazy little gem that recently took 3rd at a Premier Event.
Also, a quick shoutout to Royal, the user who came up with this decklist or – failing that – at least edited it to come up with the final product:
Geist Vengeance by Royal
Innistrad Block Constructed Daily Event Round 1
Innistrad Block Constructed Daily Event Round 2
Innistrad Block Constructed Daily Event Round 3
Innistrad Block Constructed Daily Event Round 4
A little disappointing – I was hoping for another 4-0! Also, in the last round, I gave the 4/5-Color Control list very little credit, less than Werewolves, even! I’m not sure if that was warranted. Since then, a few 4-color lists have been 3-1′ing Dailies. As of the time I’m writing this, none have 4-0′d, but it’s not a completely hopeless deck like I thought it was. Is it better and more consistent than Jund or BUG? No, probably not – I already spend cards in those decks looking for my colors; I can’t imagine adding one or two more. Colors, that is, not 1 or 2 more cards. But who knows, maybe a 4-color list will start popping up after Dark Ascension, using Altar of the Lost and Evolving Wilds to fix its mana. However, that requires a very slow format to perform well in, and it’s yet to be seen how Dark Ascension will impact the speed of the format. So I wouldn’t go and start putting all your dual lands in one deck yet.
My next article will go up February 21st – the day before Dark Ascension releases on Magic Online! That means I won’t have any new Daily Event videos up for you guys, because any Daily I would record before the release date wouldn’t be provide valid data due to the low card availability during prerelease weekend. Instead, I’ll have something special planned – building a Dark Ascension deck and running it through a small gauntlet. So don’t miss me next time!
