Game Plan

What if we turned one of our favorite things to do in the game into a way to kill our opponents? That's right! Drawing cards will dunk on our opponents on board and on the inside as we pile on the card advantage.

That's right! Standard all-star (if this were 2002) Faerie Vandal will continue to grow as we draw cards. The card plays nicely with our tempo spells and Suspicious Stowaway! Stowaway is a card I feel we've all forgotten exists and it plays very nicely with our entire engine. If we're able to jam a Gix on board, we'll draw even more cards. The nice thing about our top end creature, Gixian Puppeteer, is it not only drains our opponents but if removed, we can bring back our cheaper creatures back onto the board. That means we could potentially rescue a fallen Gix! As we're beating down with our creatures, we've also got an actual standard all-star in Invoke Despair to help us close out the games with value and damage!

"But Crim, what do you do about a Sheoldred?"

... Simple! We dodge it or pray for removal :)

Ninjutsu hasn't taken off in standard... and it probably won't anytime soon but that doesn't mean TheAsianAvenger won't jam it anyways!
