Hazezon Tamar Primer

Sultai Super Friends

Yesterday marked the beginning of the new standard season, the older sets are now out and only M15, Theros, Journey, Born and Khans remains. Last night I went with a little bit of a prototype deck to FNM and I went 3-1 only losing to Rabble Red in the final round. This deck I have dubbed “BUG Super Friends”, after one of my favorite standard decks of all time Esper Super Friends. The deck I built worked with these...
