A Little Poison To Solve Mono-White's Issues

Reddit

Mono-White Midrange had been a popular deck for a while in Standard, melding the excellent removal of Lay Down Arms and Ossification along with a bevy of great midrange threats. However, once Atraxa, Grand Unifier and friends came along and Reckoner Bankbuster was banned, the deck fell out of favor.

Skrelv's Hive

In a beautiful and odd deck-building twist, all it needed to get back on the map was some help from some little poison buddies!

Most Standard Toxic decks are built as aggressive decks, with a bunch of cheap toxic creatures and protection spells centering around Venerated Rotpriest. However, this very unique build melds the midrange and removal powers of Mono-White Midrange into a shell that can also kill quickly when needed.

Tocasia's Welcome
Mirrex

The whole deck is built around the core of Skrelv's Hive, Tocasia's Welcome, and Mirrex, which provides you with a never-ending stream of threats. The removal helps you play offense or defense, while cards like Skrelv, Defector Mite and Jawbone Duelist can provide a fast clock when needed against control or ramp decks.

I've been extremely impressed with this deck each time I've played it, as it attacks the format from a unique angle, while also having a solid chance against Domain Ramp which is usually the midrange killer.

Don't be afraid to be a little toxic!
