HOU Standard Deck Update: BG Energy

By


One of the deck archetype ive found from the recent Starcity Games Standard Open Top 8 decks was the version of Black Green Energy played by Stephen Dykman. The list looks to be composed of the typical creatures and removal spells except that a new card has been included: Dreamstealer. This Menace discarder can be the right answer to disrupt the hand of midrange opponents. Sure for a 1/2 creature it can be easily killed but with the Eternalize mechanic, it can later on comeback to finish the job.

The list though didn’t have Rishkar or Verdurous Gearhulk to boost the Dreamstealer’s power for a better discard effect. I built my own version last night and hopefully I could get to test it on tonight’s FNM. Here below is his decklist that finished in the Top 4 of the event:
