I had a great time watching the first Open Series to feature Khans of Tarkir. While the focus was mostly on the clans, what they were up to, and how they
were performing, there were also some unique decks out there, such as this Reanimator deck from Bobby Graves!
Sultai might look like it’s the king (queen) of the graveyard, but apparently Abzan does it pretty well too. I like how Bobby approached things, building a
solid midrange shell that includes some graveyard shenanigans, rather than being all in on trying to reanimate a fatty. In this case, reanimating a Siege
Rhino over and over again is more than fine. If you get a busted draw with Satyr Wayfinder into Hornet Queen with an Endless Obedience, by all means take
Bobby finished 27th in the Indianapolis Standard Open with his first pass at the deck which is very solid. There’s still room for improvement, and as the
metagame becomes clearer, this could end up being a strong choice.
