Game Plan

This list is from Edel and it's such a wild list and proof on how much fun standard is right now. Who would've thought that we'd get to jam some Thran Spider and Skitterbeam Battalion ?!

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Powerstones are actually looking pretty sweet right now (Karn is still bad) and Thran Spider nets us a stone! It's also an efficient blocker with that Reach 2/4 body that can help us dig for more artifacts! Skitterbeam Battalion is also an extremely aggressive threat as it can be 6 damage immediately or 12 damage at a later point. 9 mana to cast a bigger version of Skitterbeam isn't even that hard to pull off when we've got ramp and mana reduction in Urza, Lord Protector! The deck is basically an Izzet deck splashing white for Urza and a few sideboard cards as the Mana Reduction from Urza and The Mightstone and Weakstone are absurdly helpful. The Mightstone and Weakstone activating our Bankbusters and abilities are really helpful and way better than I initially thought. This is a sweet artifact deck for any midrange lover as this deck plays the midgame nicely and can go big in the late game as well. 

Thanks for watching the content.

If you ever want a deck to be made into a video feel free to leave a like, comment, email, and subscribe to MTGGoldfish and MTGGoldfishCommander on Youtube!

I also stream on Twitch from 8 pm PST - 2 am PST Tues-Fri!
