Chris Schafer's Puresteel

With Magic 2012 in the mix, the world of Standard is shaping up for an entirely new Standard season. On display this past weekend at the StarCityGames.com Open in Seattle, Washington were a host of archetypes, including the popular White Weenie strategy known as Puresteel. Chris Schafer played this version to a Top 16, relying on a plethora of Equipment to fuel ridiculous draws once Puresteel Paladin is on the battlefield. Schafer even splashed enough blue to squeeze in Trinket Mage and Preordain, both great options to hunt for more Equipment to fuel the Paladin! Visit StarCityGames.com for full coverage of the event.
