Standard Deck Feature: Mono-Black Humans


Another deck that I’ve found and got interested into is Saito’s version of Mono Black Aggro Humans. He piloted the deck in a strong finish in 20th place in Grand Prix Memphis. Frank Karsten made a few alterations on the list and made this updated version:

21 Swamp

4 Bloodsoaked Champion
4 Tormented Hero
4 Mardu Shadowspear
4 Ruthless Ripper
1 Mardu Skullhunter
4 Pain Seer
4 Mogis’s Marauder
4 Mardu Strike Leader

4 Bile Blight
2 Ulcerate
4 Obelisk of Urd

With the release of Dragons of Tarkir this weekend, I am pretty the deck will get upgrades especially on the sideboard like Duress for control, Minister of Pain to deal with tokens, and Self-Inflicted Wound as removal for relevant critters like Hero of Iroas and Siege Rhino.

Based on the current card pool, I think we can build this deck and add a few Dragon of Tarkir cards in the mix. Deck option number two is BW Warriors but I think this one is more consistent and has less conflict on the card components.

Until next post.
