MTGO Video With U/W Illusions

While the only Illusions left in the deck are Phantasmal Bears, this new U/W Tempo deck brings some strong beats with Geist of Saint Traft, among others. Watch these videos before the Charlotte Open this weekend to get a leg up!

Hi everyone. As you are reading this, I’m probably heading back home from SCG Open: St. Louis. My deck choice should be something similar to what is in this video, but I have a lot of cool ideas in mind for what I’m going to try. For reference, here is the decklist:

This deck is kind of a hybrid between a deck posted by Gerry Thompson last week, as well as my Illusions deck that I’ve been talking about for weeks. I know that this list is a few cards off, but I’m under the impression that Geist of Saint Traft is the direction the deck wants to move toward. I might be going about it the wrong way, but I still like the aggressive blue package. Geist of Saint Traft is a little awkward against certain decks/draws, but his power level should not be mistaken.

Before anyone starts in about cards I should add and cut, I already know that Geist probably needs something like Sword of Feast and Famine to make him harder to block. I might eventually move in that direction, but for now we’re going to keep it simple. As I expand the deck and try out new things, I’ll let you know how it ends up.
