AER Standard Deck Update: B/W Control


With the loss of Emrakul in Standard and the rise of the supposedly Black Green Constrictor-based decks, non-Blue control archetypes might have the chance again to get a slot in the metagame. One of which is Black White Control which was very popular back when Languish was still legal. Now it was replaced with Yahenni’s Expertise as the new Black sweep spell. The minus 3 minus 3 might look a bit inefficient to deal with large creatures but with its free spell bonus gains you a free spot removal and even a Liliana. Here is a decklist that I referenced from Craig Wescoe’s article at the TCG Player website.

2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
1 Noxious Gearhulk

4 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
3 Liliana, the Last Hope
2 Ob Nixilis Reignited
2 Sorin, Grim Nemesis

2 Anguished Unmaking
2 Fatal Push
2 Fumigate
4 Grasp of Darkness
2 Murder
4 Succumb to Temptation
2 Transgress the Mind
2 Yahenni’s Expertise

4 Concealed Courtyard
3 Forsaken Sanctuary
7 Plains
4 Shambling Vent
8 Swamp
