Standard Deck Tech: UUr Devotion

Standard Deck Tech: UUr Devotion
I’ve read upon a deck idea from the MtGUK site (Manaleak.com) pertaining to the use of Purphoros, God of the Forge in Mono Blue Devotion deck. This splash makes your critters deadlier even before attacking because of the bonus two damage with coming-into-play trigger. Here is the decklist that I’ve came up with:

Lands
15 Island
2 Izzet Guildgate
4 Steam Vents
3 Mutavault
1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Creatures
4 Frostburn Weird
2 Purphoros, God of the Forge
4 Thassa, God of the Sea
4 Master of Waves
4 Nightveil Specter
4 Cloudfin Raptor
4 Tidebinder Mage

Spells
2 Jace, Architect of Thought
2 Ral Zarek
2 Rapid Hybridization
1 Cyclonic Rift
2 Bident of Thassa

The Red splash are two Purphoros, God of the Forge and two Ral Zarek. The Izzet planeswalker does a lot of combat tricks in benefit of the deck, and even can deal the final points of damage.

The creature cut was the Judge’s Familiar which I’ve noticed is the one that’s usually sided out in most of the deck matchups. The usual suspects are still there, but Purphoros makes it more interesting, and deadly.

The card draw setup is still the same two-ofs: Jace, Architect of Thought and Bident of Thassa. Also, Rapid Hybridization is still the removal of choice. The token can also be dealt with by Ral Zarek just in case.

Let me know what you think of the deck. Post your comments and suggestions below. I’d appreciate it. 🙂

That is about it for the deck. Until next post.
