EMN Standard Deck Tech: Providence


For today’s potential EMN Standard deck, we have a Rare White sorcery card previewed earlier today in Reddit. The card is named Providence. This looks to be a new variance of life gain and we shall check how it will fit for a Mono White lifegain deck. Below is the card image.


The first card I immediately thought about after seeing this is Felidar Sovereign. Starting at a healthy 26 life and later on gaining it back is just very hard to deal with for most aggro decks. We will just find a way to setup the right components so as we can also go in par with Midrange and Control decks.

With that in mind, here is my preliminary decklist:

1 Aegis Angel
4 Felidar Sovereign
3 Lone Rider
2 Ruin Processor

2 Blessed Alliance
2 Declaration in Stone
4 Prism Ring
4 Hedron Archive
4 Stasis Snare
3 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
1 Silkwrap
2 Descend upon the Sinful
4 Providence

4 Blighted Steppe
20 Plains

Prism Ring is your initial lifegain source, followed by Lone Rider which works well with the ring. Gideon can be your offense/defense partner in the mid-game and the Hedron Archives will help you ramp into early Felidar Sovereigns, Ruin Processor, sweep the board with Descend upon the Sinful or a hard cast Providence.

Do take note that this list will likely improve once the spoiler is complete. Your comments and suggestions are very much welcome so just post them in the box below. I’d be glad to hear them out.
