Battle for Zendikar Brews, pt. 5 – Wb Swarm

Sam Black was playing a monowhite deck during the Standard portion of this year’s World Championships. It was largely based on a deck played by the famous White Weenie afficionado (this may be the first time I’ve ever used that word) Craig Wescoe, which in turn was based on a monowhite tokens deck played by some lesser known player. (Sorry, I forgot your name and TCGPlayer is down, so I can’t go and check either.)

Most of the card will survive the rotation, but I thought maybe I’d like to bring in black anyhow. Just as a splash, though.

Well, basically we’re just finding more uses for the new Gideon, once again. I think that card will haunt people for a long while.

This deck isn’t all about tokens, but rather just going wide. Swarm, if you will, as Chapin calls the strategy in his book, Next Level Deckbuilding. Its nice how you can get your lands to help with your overall strategy.
