Fish Five-0: Temur Midrange (Standard, Magic Arena)

A color combination that I don't really get to play too often is Temur and this week, we're going to see if we can get there with Three-Mur(Temur) midrange


The decks best draws will usually be any of our one-drops Arboreal Grazer or Gilded Goose into any of three drop spells

I'm sure people already know how good Oko, Thief of Crowns is. This card is the absolute best thing you can drop on turn two but there are other cards to play but to a lower power level but still pretty sweet! Gruul Spellbreaker gives a way to be aggressive and fight on board. Domri, Anarch of Bolas allows us to accelerate our mana even more so while also providing us with pseudo removal when paired with our creatures. The passive Anthem effect on Domri seems like a joke but you can probably get some chip damage in with our mana accelerant. Same goes with The Royal Scions as I've killed people out of nowhere when they're at a low health total with our one-drop creatures but even better, the card allows us to sift through our deck and get through all of our lands and etc. 


I think the deck's most problematic matchup is something that runs a ton of cheap counterspells or a deck that runs nothing but removal. Something like Simic Flash can really dismantle us as we just play one bomb a turn and if they counter everything while putting bodies on board, it's very hard for us to climb back into the match. If you watch the video, you'll see that we get paired against a removal heavy Abzan Wolves deck and it just dismantles us as we could never stick a threat. Another problematic matchup could be mono-red as we don't have many removal spells in the main deck. Everything comes in post-board which should help us out a little.


After playing the deck, I do think my inclusion of Questing Beast and other creatures in the main deck might delude the deck as we could probably turn the deck into a superfriends deck. Theres also the other side of the coin where we could play a more creature heavy variant that is loaded to the brim with haste creatures like Skarrgan Hellkite and plays more like a Gruul smash deck but splashing for Oko, Thief of Crowns. It may not be worth the splash but it would be fun to try. The creature heavy version would look something like this

I'd love to see if there's a Temur deck out there so feel free to let me know in the comments here or in the video if there's a version you like or if you had any updates on this list at all that you think would work! 

Thanks for watching and I'll see you at the next one!
