Magic 2015 in Standard

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

When a new set is released into Standard, it usually takes some amount of time for players to figure out how to incorporate it into their decks. When there is a large tournament on release weekend, such as the StarCityGames Open in Baltimore this past weekend, players have a tough decision to make. Do they stick with what is tried and true and something they know how to play well? Do they brave trying out a new deck, hoping that the value in catching opponents off guard might outweigh the unfamiliarity with the deck?

Andrew Boswell decided to take a middle road with his green-white deck en route to a 2nd-place finish at the Open. While keeping the core of his aggressive green-white deck intact, Andrew added a few Magic 2015 cards to his deck in order to throw his opponents off without compromising his ability to play the deck. This deck begins with cheap creatures, such as Experiment One, Soldier of the Pantheon, and Voice of Resurgence. Magic 2015's Sunblade Elf is another 2-power creature for one mana that helps the deck generate aggressive starts, but Sunblade Elf has a late-game ability to boost all of your creatures.

Speaking of boosting all of your creatures, the sideboard features Ajani Steadfast to provide a potentially repeatable way to make all of your creatures bigger. Ajani Steadfast also shines in racing situations, as the combination of vigilance and lifelink can swing a race in your favor. Ajani is particularly powerful with large creatures, such as Loxodon Smiter and Advent of the Wurm tokens.
