If you have been around the shop lately, chances are you have run into Daniel Mimms and his G/W standard list, chances are also high that you got smashed hard by it. Here is a look at what The Rowdy Russian has been bringing to the table!
Mimms – So, the deck is inspired by Craig Wescoe’s Block constructed White Weenie. The main difference is the lack of Experiment One (and 2 pricey Deer Men), for Rancors and Strangleroot Geists. The deck is slightly slower than Naya Blitz, but offers way more tricks and resilience. Most notably Main-boarding Rootborn Defenses. Sometimes it’s a turn 3 value swing for an extra centaur and sometimes it’s a turn 5 Blowout for an extra Wurm. It feels like a perfect marriage of Tempo and Aggro, thanks largely to instant speed creatures and Selesnya Charm always being relevant.
