Whispers of the Muse: Jackson P’s Repel the Dark (INN)
One of the great things about Intro Pack decks is how well they lend themselves to some rudimentary deckbuilding. Our Whispers of the Muse feature is dedicated to precisely that! With a deck idea submitted by a reader, we turn to the preconstructed community to offer ideas and suggestions on how to improve the deck. Today we return to Innistrad, with the Green/White Human tribal offering, Repel the Dark.
Today’s submission comes to us by way of Jackson P. Says Jackson,
I am a bit of a Magic novice, only ever having played with my friends. I have, however, become fed up with having to borrow their decks to play. I decided to buy the Repel the Dark intro pack but i would like to customize it a little to make it a bit better. I was hoping to get a bit more removal and help it run a little faster. I like the human tribal theme and i would like to keep it White/Green and be Standard legal.
Jackson’s already done a bit of tinkering with the stock list, and here’s what he’s come up with so far.
- 14x Plains
- 10x Forest
Jackson concludes with a few final thoughts on how he’d like to see the deck crafted.
I would like to keep the deck aggressive but i’m not sure if changes should be made to help it later in the game. I realize there are a few rares listed and for price and convenience’s sake I have considered using Elder Cathar and Selfless Cathar as replacements for a few of the pricier cards. I would like to avoid spending a fortune but i would also like to see what the deck could look like with a large budget.
So, who has some thoughts and ideas for an upgraded Repel the Dark? With what’s looming on the horizon with Dark Ascension, the Humans need all the help they can get!
