Shadows over Innistrad Brews, pt. 15 – Sultai Company

I probably should’ve stopped a couple of brews ago at 13, but sorry. I guess its the Madness in me. Yes, that was awful, but I’m not sorry at all.

Although [card]Collected Company[/card] based decks lose plenty of toys, there’s still also plenty of cheap efficient creatures available. I’m most interested in the Sultai colors (or BUG, if you are old-fashioned). There’s the good old [card]Den Protector[/card] + [card]Deathmist Raptor[/card] combo, and there’s also the extra Raptors in the form of [card]Prized Amalgam[/card], but on top of those, we have…

[draft]Jace, Vryn’s Prodigy
Sylvan Advocate
Asylum Visitor
Avatar of the Resolute
Bearer of Silence
Dimensional Infiltrator
Rattlechains
Bounding Krasis
Catacomb Sifter
Carrier Thrall
Deadbridge Shaman
Deathcap Cultivator
Despoiler of Souls
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Duskwatch Recruiter
Eldrazi Skyspawner
Essence Depleter
Fathom Feeder
Fleshbag Marauder
Glade Watcher
Graveblade Marauder
Heir of Falkenrath
Hermit of the Natterknolls
Liliana, Heretical Healer
Managorger Hydra
Nantuko Husk
Nissa, Vastwood Seer
Stratus Dancer
Vile Redeemer
Void Grafter[/draft]

Seems like enough to build on. I did leave out plenty of stuff, like [card]Harbinger of the Tides[/card], because I can’t put double costing cards from all the colors into the deck. Even two colors seems hard, but I’ll try that out. Green and Black work better, because I will be putting a set of [card]Deathcap Cultivator[/card]s into the deck.

[deck title=Sultai Company]

Here’s another version, but this, I’m trying out how good the clues are (without taking away the value creatures at the heart of the previous deck):

[deck title=Sultai Clues]
[creatures]
4 Den Protector
4 Deathmist Raptor
4 Prized Amalgam
4 Byway Courier
4 Daring Sleuth
4 Graf Mole
4 Tireless Tracker
2 Deathcap Cultivator
[/creatures]
[spells]
4 Collected Company
4 Traverse the Ulvenwald
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Evolving Wilds
4 Llanowar Wastes
3 Yavimaya Coast
2 Hissing Quagmire
4 Lumbering Falls
1 Sunken Hollow
1 Island
2 Forest

[/lands]
[/deck]

… or how about ’em zombies.

[draft]Diregraf Colossus
Relentless Dead
Fleshbag Marauder
Nantuko Husk
Screeching Skaab
Shambling Ghoul
Shambling Goblin
Sibsig Icebreakers[/draft]

… and these are only going to be an alternate value engine and we’ll still be using the original one as well.
