SOI Standard White Aggro with Red

SOI Standard White Aggro with Red
Checking on the coverage of Grand Prix Minnesota, I have read on an article that discusses Sam Black’s innovation with White Humans. As of the recent metagame, Humans has been the fastest aggro deck. Popularized by pro player Craig Wescoe, the mono White versions has been successful as of late, but it is not a bad idea to do a little splash.

Sam is now implementing this idea on this current GP with Red as the second color. The splash purpose was for the R/W manland Needle Spires which he is having in the sideboard. It is maybe used for control matchups as a late game gas against board sweeps. There is no decklist posted just yet, but I assume this is his partial list:

1 Anointer of Champions
2 Consul’s Lieutenant
2 Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
4 Dragon Hunter
4 Expedition Envoy
4 Knight of the White Orchid
4 Thalia’s Lieutenant
4 Thraben Inspector
4 Town Gossipmonger
3 Kytheon, Hero of Akros

4 Always Watching
4 Declaration in Stone
3 Gryff’s Boon

The lands would just be Plains and Battlefield Forge. We will stay tuned on how the deck performs on the second day of the Grand Prix which will start tonight PH time.
