there is an abzan aggro list that plays hangerback walkers instead of rakshasas deathdealer which gives the deck a decided advantage over the mirrors withouth hangerbacks and is good in the late game against languish

what do you think about this decklist with maindeck monastery siege and treasure cruise for ur sligh. i think it has great potential. We get the same aggro game plan but then we have 2 cruise and 3 sieges to work with if we get stalled out or we have to burn every creature that they play. Im not say...

This is what im currently playing right now and I think I need to switch to a dragon build like lee shi tian did. Im finding the abzan matchup unbeatable and its not because of the lifegain from rhino. Its mainly because I cant deal with their 4 power guys and kill them in a good time frame. If i ha...

Could we just play a blue red variant with some number of treasure cruise and day's undoing instead of temur? It might give us a way to no longer need atarkas command since we can just play the control burn game.

I don't understand large parts of that deck. It looks horrendous honestly. The reason it looks very funky is because mardu midrange was very big in my local meta which warped the decklist to this configuration.

I take it this deck is good at beating up the whip/midrange strategies while being weak to control?

God no. The deck is sweet vs control. I have a good win % against it. Whip decks are a joke vs us.

I haven't been playing MTGO much, how is this deck situated for the standard meta online?
Bad i think. Mardu midrange/jeskai tokes are a good portion of the meta which are your worst matchups. I my list scews to beat them just for that reason.
