M:tG Cribbs #18: RU Young Pyromancer in Standard

  1. I like augurs over delvers for most of these matchups, and I think there should be at least 2 runechanters pikes in a deck with 24 md spells+token generators.

    MTGO screwed you hard and often on land in these matches though, so nothing to be done about that.

  2. Also, If you cut the burning earth strategy, you could throw a couple of guildgates in there along with a couple of mutavaults to beat the rest of the life out of the opponent, possibly strap on a pike for extra fun.

  3. Thank you for the feedback. I completely forgot about Pike, that does seem like a perfect fit into the deck. It effectively makes any token or creature into a huge threat that has to be dealt with. I was also thinking that Hellrider would be a great top end finisher, especially with all the tokens I can produce.

  4. Instead of Hellrider or Chandra phenox at the top of the curve how about ogre battledriver he turns any of your tokens into immediate threats along with a pike?
