Forced Fruition Episode 2: Diggin’ Through the Yard

Share Button

 

Hello and welcome back to Forced Fruition, the Magic show where we strive to better ourselves by identifying a theme and sticking to it! This time around I drafted a green-black graveyard deck in a BNG THS THS Swiss event. Some tough decisions were made during the draft portion and the games turned out pretty well. Enjoy the video and please feel free to leave feedback on my drafting, play, or presentation in the comments below. Enjoy!

Overall I was happy with the performance of this deck, though I do still wonder if things might have gone better had I taken the Nemesis of Mortals instead of the Hero’s Downfall in pack 3. Either way, the green-black graveyard deck in Theros Limited is certainly a contender, and if you can get the trifecta of Nighthowler, Whip of Erebos, and Nemesis of Mortals, along with the supporting cast to fill up your yard, you’ll be in business. Also, we didn’t see her, but Pharika’s Mender also deserves a mention for the archetype as well.

 

See you next week!
