Pokémon TCG deck – Ancient Trait Entei / Pyroar [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Main Pokémon: Ancient Trait Entei / Pyroar
Deck Name: Fire Dogs
Format: Standard 2015 – 2016

Ancient Trait Entei Pyroar




4 Entei 4 Acro Bike 6 Fire Energy
4 Unown 4 VS Seeker 4 Double Colorless Energy
2 Litleo 4 Blacksmith
2 Pyroar 3 Battle Compressor
2 Shaymin EX 3 Ultra Ball
3 Professor Sycamore
3 Hard Charm
3 Muscle Band
2 Switch
2 Lysandre
2 Scorched Earth
1 AZ
1 Ace Trainer
1 Sparkling Robe

Hints / Things to think about

  • Getting a first turn attack with Entei is not impossible with this deck. Always see if you have the options to do a first turn KO before wasting your supporter for the turn. Becuase you need to use Blacksmith to make it happen.
  • You do not always need to do your strongest attack with Entei even tho you have the option. Sometimes, you just want to tank up with Hard Charms and use ”Flame Screen” to set up a KO for next turn while being able to tank alot of damage.
  • Never forget, fire Energy in the Discard Pile is a tool for you with this deck.
  • Play a fire Energy or draw two cards with Scorced Earth, in most situations the card draw is correct to give your more options. But it all depends on the situation you’re currently in.
  • Entei’s second attack can do a maximum of 170damage in one attack. Make sure to punish those Manectric Exs’!

Pokémon TCG deck – Ancient Trait Nidoqueen [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Main Pokémon: Ancient Trait Nidoqueen
Deck Name: Queen
Format: Standard 2015 – 2016

Ancient Trait Nidoqueen




4 Phantump 4 VS Seeker 4 Mystic Energy
3 Trevenant 4 Dimension Valley 3 Double Colorless Energy
3 Nidoran 4 Wally 3 Psychic Energy
2 Nidorina 4 Professor Sycamore
3 Nidoqueen 3 Muscle Band
2 Shaymin EX 3 Ultra Ball
1 Rare Candy
2 Switch
2 Silent Lab
2 Lysandre
1 Shauna
1 Hex Maniac
1 Xerosic

Hints / Things to think about

  • First turn? Yes please! Nidoran with Wally turns in to a turn two Nidoqueen that can deal plenty of damage. Turn one Phantump with Wally locks your opponent down. Always take the first turn!
  • If you get a Trevenant lock early, do not be affraid to play Silent Lab to give your opponent even less option. Sure your Shaymins will be dead in your hand but your opponent is probably already having a hard time now as it is.
  • Remember that Nidoqueen can knock out TWO Pokémon in one turn. If there are plenty of week Pokémon currently being played in the format, you can really abuse that fact.
  • Remember that Trevenant can actually do plenty of damage with a Muscle Band attached, you do not always need to keep them for Nidoqueen.

MTG – Post Rotation Deck – Standard – Golgari Zombies

Hello Nurglings!

This evening I will be sharing between one and three different deck ideas that I’ve written down for post rotation, just because I’m an awesome guy that share my fun ideas! The lists are not tested, they are not really created with other decks in the format in mind. I just wanted to play Golgari, that’s it!


4 Lotleth Troll
4 Diregraf Ghoul
4 Gravegrawler
4 Dreg Mangler
3 Veilborn Ghoul
2 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord


4 Grisly Salvage
4 Abrubpt Decay
3 Mulch
2 Vraska the Unseen
2 Deadly Allure


4 Overgrown Tomb
4 Woodland Cemetery
4 Golgari Guildgate
8 Swamps
4 Forest

So just some quick things about the deck. Discard Veilborn Ghouls to Lotleth Troll, play a swamp and do it again. That plan will probably go away as soon as the deck evolves, right now it just feels cool, but I doubt that it’s actually good enough for the deck. Also, you could probably play Liliana over Vraska if you wanted to, or mix them both.

Hope you enjoy the list people!
Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

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!

MTG – Standard Deck (Post Rotation) – Mono Green

Hello Nurglings!

I know I just posted a deck, but this list was pretty much done when I posted the mono blue list, so why wait to share this one?

So let’s start with the creature lineup.

Creatures: 24
4x Arbor Elf
4x Young Wolf
4x Elvish Visionary
4x Strangleroot Geist
4x Wolfir Avenger
4x Wolfir Silverheart

Spells: 8
4x Rancor
4x Titanic Growth

Planeswalkers: 4
4x Garruk Relentless

24x Forest

Do you see what you want to do with this deck? Just hit them fast, and hit them hard. Well Semi-fast… and Semi-hard. The plan is just to get a prescense that is overwhelming and use that Wolfir Silverheart or Garruk as a finisher. Not sure how well it will work, but if you like creatures. Why not try it?

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
