At this point..I am like ADD with building decks or something rofl....I got back into MTG after years of not playing and not having any of my old cards so I really had to start back up from scratch and find my niche again. After some frustration I am getting some clarity.
I have a mono green deck that is relatively fast, easy mana gain in that. That is the secondary deck though and not my main focus. I am not excited about it, at least not right now.
My "main" has become my white/red deck. I dismantled the mono-white and the red/green, combined some of those cards. The red/white is working pretty well for me. It looks lack luster at first because I got weenies coming out, but those weenies go to the gym lol. Lots of counters getting put on them, gaining trample, lifelink (never hurts to have that) and most people want to get rid of my creatures at that point...they are mostly humans....thing is..that is what I want them to do because then I pull out my
. Returning all of my humans from the graveyard is nice and all, but it is the fact that when I do this I gain counters on all of my creatures equal to how many creatures I put out, I deal direct damage to creature or player for the amount of human cards I have on the field due to my
which I happen to have multiple copies of so lets say I have two vigilante out and I put back 5 humans with glory, that is 10 direct dmg. Tack on my kessig malcontent (when enters battlefield deals dmg to target player equal to number humans I control)....
You get the point....if I am able to do a mass res like that on my humans, it hurts. I have things like
which are used simply to add more counters to all of my creatures. That simple card gives me +3+3 to all of my creatures due to
. I have multiple cards that give me +1 counters when I put creatures out or just for attacking with one of them etc.....I take an army of weenies and turn them into formidable opponents.
I also have
which really acts to give me more direct dmg towards target creature or player.
In the end....if a player kills my creatures off, they just come back swinging, but if they don't kill my creatures off then my weenies keep getting more beefy. The devil card is not a necessity...I just kinda like him ^^
I have a few angels thrown in right now like Seraph of Dawn. A 2/4 flying with lifelink is nice and I am bias because I have a daughter named Seraphim so I rather like seraph of dawn, seraph sanctuary etc. due to her name hehe. I don't really need that angel and once I get the remaining cards I want for this deck I will probably have to take those out, but for right now if someone takes out any of my angels I have a card to res them from the graveyard with a +1+1 so they get fatter and if my devil is out it just means more direct dmg to target player.
Played against a bunch of people this weekend, almost every day actually. I made someone salty this weekend with this deck Whatever....that only tells me that my deck was doing something right and they were even using proxies in their deck after it was explained that we never use proxies and we would be lenient this time, but no rare proxies were allowed...that person was using rare proxies.
