MTG Standard deck – Green / White flicker – Post rotation

Hello Nurglings!

I know I’ve mentioned earlier that I was working on a Green/White deck in Magic the Gathering for the Standard format to come. Not sure if it’s good or not, but I think it will be fun! Plenty of creatures and a few fun interactions, what else do you need? Really?

This deck should probably be Naya (Green/Red/White) to maximize its performance. But… this is my deck so I do whatever I want it! 😀 But if you want to make it a tiny bit better (maybe better), you may want to add Red.

So let’s start with the non-creature spells for this deck:


4x Rancor
4x Oblivion Ring

Other Spells:

4x Cloudshift

Yes, you’re right, there are not a lot of spells in this deck. Finally we see Rancor in Standard (I say finally cause I really want to play it in both Standard and Modern). Oblivion ring works as our safest removal and Cloudshift is there to help our creatures flicker.

Why do we want to see our creatures Flicker, well, let’s look at them!

Creatures: 26
4x Arbor Elf
4x Avacyn’s Pilgrim
4x Elvish Visionary
4x Fiendhunter
4x Restoration Angel
4x Thragtusk
2x Sigarda Host of Herons

There are some ramp creatures, and plenty of “Enter the Battlefield” triggers in this deck. One very special new creature is: Thragtusk. Not only does he get you 5 life when he hits the Battlefield. But when he leaves the Battlefield (it does not matter how), you get a 3/3 beast. It’s a sweet deal! Together with one of my favorite legendary angels: Sigarda. You get a good flying team with her and Restoration Angel mixed with Rancor. Rancor also helps with your early aggression in this deck, your mana creatures can easily hit for 3 turn two and three if your opponent won’t do something about it.

And the lands:

Lands: 24
4x Sunpetal Grove
4x Evolving wilds
1x Seraph Sanctuary
9x Forest
6x Plains

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

  1. mana ramp…mana ramp everywhere…

  2. I’m making a similar deck with blink as its main mechanic, but I still need another Restoration Angel or two, some Thragtusks, and some more Sunpetal Groves. Mine’s gonna be a Life Gain deck though, with Tree of Redemption + Sheltering Word and Chalice of Life as my main ways to gain life, as well as the 1/1 Human that gains you 3 life when you enter the battlefield. Nothing is funner than flipping 3 Chalice of Life into 3 Chalice of Death at the same time then making your opponent lost 15 life the next turn! I’ll have to post the idea up on my website one of these days.

      Had a similar idea. I really like to use different types of artifacts as win-conditions. (Like the Empire combo in m12). If you try the deck before rotation dont forget to use Prestine Talisman as a mana source!

      Will be happy to read your post about that deck if you do post it. 🙂
