I like the axebane stags here, really brings it all together


I know right? I was like 'I want to decorate this deck in a special way' so I asked a gay friend for advice (cuz they are always in the know of decorating things) and he suggested axebane so that's how it came to be.

Oh you TEASE! :angel:

Anyways, Evolutionary Leap works wonders in the deck! Even felt safe leaving the Gaea's in since it's so resilient.

This started as a "Just because ...." deck but as I have had issues with iOS connection for past few weeks I dusted it off and gave it a major refit!

For the tri-colour creatures I upped the max count to 3. They are all strong for the colour cost. 32 creatures makes it reasonably robust to mass removal and of course pilots the Valor in Akros. Most of the 1 and 2 drops have utility as either fast damage or increasing health or provide draw or eternal blockers.

A Planeswalker can make the match but of course colour dependant means it's basically a mix of aggro and mid.

Current curve is 7 10 15 2 with 26 lands. These are all basic bar the evolving wilds. The mulligan is key and with creatures to 3cc and 26 lands don't be frightened to mull to 4 if required. Look to be casting one of the 3 drop creatures on curve. The RR and BB make Chandra and Lili harder so consider Evolving Wilds for R or B unless it's obvious from cards in hand.

For casual fun it's a lot more fun than the recognised Top Tier meta and versus AI it fares well due to the normal tapped land turn 1 of AI. It can also confuse it on which deck to play to counter but golgari tends to be a favourite.


5 Colour Rainbow Deck

1 x Kytheon, Hero of Akros
3 x Elite Vanguard
3 x Goblin Glory Chaser
3 x Sigiled Starfish
3 x Child of Night
1 x Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
3 x Undercity Troll
1 x Liliana, Heretical Healer
1 x Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
1 x Nissa, Vastwood Seer
3 x Blood-Cursed Knight
3 x Iroas's Champion
3 x Citadel Castellan
3 x Bounding Krasis
2 x Valor in Akros

6 x Plains
4 x Island
4 x Swamp
4 x Mountain
4 x Forest
4 x Evolving Wilds

I'm with him on valor here actually. He can't reliably have WW in a 5-color deck, IMO. I'd rather see a different card though.

I think the only reliable thing here is bad opening hands and plenty of mulligans. :)

That's thematic though, and therefore acceptable, IMO.

yes and all of those creatures are going to need a skilled tactician to lead them

I think all those creatures just want to prove their valor.

Not sure I get that logic :(. Valor in Akros triggers when a creature hits, I have a decent no of creatures. The tactician is a 1 off shot whereas Valor gives me value for each creature after it's out. In general the power level is lo due to curve so multiple triggers are better (arguably). I have chandra as RR but only because it's designed to be a 5 Planeswalker deck.

Is it optimal, of course not. Running 5 Planeswalkers is mental. But it doesn't stop me having a stab at it :D

The Whirler rogue for multiple triggers is a thing though so would be interesting to experiment but it's a 4 drop so will probably compromise things. A 1 off won't have much of an impact but multiple will hurt the curve which is the last thing I would want with mana balancing.

EDIT: another bit of synergy, the Valar provides the bonus for the knight and as resilience is arguably a challenge for the deck every little ounce of health helps ;)
