Damian is a 34-year old medical doctor from Uberlandia, Minas Gerais. He started playing Magic about a decade ago, finishing second within 2007 Brazilian Nationals, but recently he has got been lacking the full time for competitive Magic. "2 yrs ago, we stopped playing secret excluding Commander. We just attended the Grand Prix this weekend because I was already in Sao Paulo for a radiology conference, but i am pleased used to do!"

Where performed the deck originate from? "I don't know the Standard metagame well, " Damian explained. "we seemed up all the tier 1 decks, but i did not feel prepared and I believed we needed different things. I found this blue deck on a discussion discussion board on the web, although without any sideboard cards, and I also liked it at great deal."

Between Ensoul Artifact (sustained by 14 items) and military-intelligence, the deck will come completely from the gates rapidly with impactful enchantments. "I did all of it time very long, " Damian said. "Land, Ornithopter on turn one. The opponent plays a tap-land. However go land, Scissors, attack for five, together with adversary shakes their head in disbelief this is going on in their mind. Or i possibly could begin with land, Ornithopter, one-mana animal on change one, accompanied by Military Intelligence on change 2, attracting a card immediately. It's very powerful!"

Even though the deck generally takes the aggro part with animals that cannot be blocked, additionally features a good late game. "The deck can draw a lot of cards, and in case I can't win early, I quickly can come back with Hypnotic Siren. It stole me a few Dragonlords today. I was losing one game to Dragonlord Ojutai, for instance, but Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx into Hypnotic Siren allowed us to switch the tables and show my opponent just how it is like to obtain struck by Ojutai!"

The deck also features a heavy commitment theme. Shorecrasher Elemental, a brand new card from Dragons of Tarkir, helps assistance Thassa, God of the water and Master of surf particularly. "I mainly expected Mono-Red, Abzan, and Dragonlord Ojutai porches at this occasion. I think that Mono-Red is not a problem because I have Master of Waves and many little guys that can gain time before Master of Waves arrives. They are unable to beat protection from red."

Utilizing the boost in Mono-Red to prey on Esper Dragons, this Mono-Blue deck are placed really now. Another matchups are not as easy, but the sideboard helps lots. "Abzan is difficulty because their particular animals tend to be more effective and simply because they have Dromoka's Command to cope with all of my crucial enchantments. And so I put Stratus Dancer within the sideboard to counter Dromoka's Command, in addition to cards that get me personally tempo, like Silumgar Sorcerer and Encase in Ice. Encase in Ice is excellent because it can awaken Thassa unexpectedly. Against Esper Dragons, the sideboard assists loads also when I gain Stratus Dancer and Negate to counter Crux of Fate."

Therefore could this deck play a significant role in Standard moving forward? "I think it really is a beneficial deck, but it is only tier 2 today. I'm uncertain the things I can perform to boost the deck, and I also in fact believe the best strength associated with the deck is based on the surprise worth. Numerous players explained following the match which they don't anticipate this deck, did not learn how to play against it, and don't have anything in their sideboard against me personally."
