Standard Simic Thieves


We've all seen Grixis or even just Dimir decks that steal ALL the things with Thief of Sanity, The Eldest Reborn, and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager. However, this past week a new thief deck has a emerged, a Simic one. Unlike the Black based thief decks, Simic is stealing creatures and planeswalkers with Entrancing Melodies and Mass Manipulation. The deck is actually really fun to play, and it is competitive in best of three! Let's see the deck!

Time Stamps:

Match 1 - 00:03:20

Match 2 - 00:17:05

Match 3 - 00:33:21

Match 4 - 00:44:34

Match 5 - 01:14:55

I was not the mastermind behind this deck. It was given to me from someone that got it from Reddit / Twitter. I do enjoy me some Simic decks, so I had to give this deck a whirl. It looks clunky but it does work surprisingly well. It is mostly because you have cards that are so swingy even if you're far behind. Cards like Mass Manipulation and Hydroid Krasis can and will easily turn the tide of a game in your favor, especially Mass Manipulation. Some games you are just able to ramp extremely fast, since you have twelve cards that ramp, and you can steal creature after creature and your opponent just cannot keep up. You not only nullify their turn and the mana they invested but you also turn it into your threat. The deck ran smoothly, and I would highly recommend it if you want a break from the traditional Standard decks. That's it for this week, have a great weekend everyone! I'll see you all next week!

As always, thanks for reading,
