Single Scoop: G.O.A.T. (Standard)


For Ikoria spoiler season I got to spoil Stormwild Capridor, a card that gives us a different take on "bolt the bird"

Gameplan

I've incorporated the greatest bird of all time into a deck we saw awhile back in Feather, the Redeemed. The core of the deck will still be a Feather deck but with more burn based sweepers.

With most of our creatures having more toughness than power, I figured we'd try Solar Blaze as that also grows our Stormwild Capridor. In a best of one meta, you can definitely get away with a more janky gameplan so I figured this is our best chance to play this deck. Outside of that, we're still very much a feather deck but we got some new tools!

Fight as One allows us to get some crazy value as it can protect any of our non-Human threats while also keeping our Tenth District Legionnaire around! If we ever get Feather, the Redeemed and our legionnaire together, they'll be unstoppable outside of a Teferi, Time Raveler shutting down all of our reactive spells. We've also got Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt as a cool mutate to attach to our non-Human threats. I'm pretty much using Snapdax as a surprise double strike tactic for opponents who are tapped out. 

 

Conclusion

The deck got the jump on a lot of people and it was fun to build around my spoiler card but if Jeskai Fires of Invention continues to be popular, it'll be tough for us to keep up with them as any variation of control or Fires could be one of our worst matches. I also think 22 lands might be a bit greedy and recommend going up to the 23rd land as we often struggled to hit our fourth land. Also, as the meta evolves, we'll have to monitor it to determine how efficient Hushbringer is. Moving forward, I'd like to see what Stormwild Capridor can do in Historic as we do have Star of Extinction but in standard, it might just be better to be a full-on Feather, the Redeemed deck if you're trying to play anything like this.

As always, thanks for watching! See ya at the next one.
