As one of the mainstay archetypes in the game, White Weenie always seems to be around… Except that right now it isn’t. Sure, there’s BW-Warriors deck out there, but its not quite the same. The problem is that there aren’t usable two drops out there. Sure, there are two-drops such as [card]Seeker of the Way[/card], but you don’t necessarily want that for your weenie deck, which is going to be full of creatures.
Thankfully, Dragons of Tarkir brings us a couple of good ones. And I have a plan…
The translation on Anafenza on MythicSpoiler.com is as follows:
Whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, bolster 1.
… and here’s my secret weapon:
See the synergy? I’m going to go even further with that.
4 Soldier of the Pantheon
4 Mardu Woe-Reaper
1 Herald of Anafenza
4 Anafenza, Spirit of the Family Tree
4 Hidden Dragonslayer
1 Seeker of the Way
4 Brimaz, King of Oreskos
4 Abzan Falconer
1 High Sentinels of Arashin
4 Citadel Siege
4 Ajani Steadfast
2 Feat of Resistance
The legendary and planeswalker rules might come and bite us here, but I’d be willing to take the risk. A bit like monoblue devotion, its a linear aggro deck. You cast a number of creatures and hopefully you’ll get them all in the air and attacking by turn four, doing hopefully enough damage before the opponent can stabilize. Flying is very strong, especially if you can grow the flying creatures.
The +1/+1 counters are everywhere and will devastate your opponents who rely on burn to control your creatures. Other spot removal (such as [card]Ultimate Price[/card]) will be devastating.
This deck is very suspectable to sweepers and the sideboard definitely would need soemthing against control decks. Probably [card]Ajani’s Presence[/card].
Another option from Dragons of Tarkir is [card]Arashin Foremost[/card].
Getting a few counters on [card]Brimaz, King of Oreskos[/card] and then both flying and double strike will be pretty good. I would need to test this whole thing to find out.
