KTK: Sealed pool #2

Here’s another Sealed pool that I opened this week, as practice for the PTQ this weekend. (It’s also posted on TappedOut.) How would you have built this pool? Post your builds in the comments and I’ll post my build (also in the comments) tonight.

One Response to KTK: Sealed pool #2

    As with my previous pool from the PTQ, I built a W/G/b deck from this pool.

    Creatures (16):
    – 2cc: 2 Ainok Bond-Kin, 2 Archer’s Parapet
    – 3cc: 2 Abzan Guide, Pine Walker, Sagu Archer, 2 War Behemoth, 2 Krumar Bond-Kin, Alpine Grizzly, Mardu Hordechief
    – 4cc: –
    – 5cc: Ivorytusk Fortress, Armament Corps

    Spells (7):
    – 2cc: Feat of Resistance, Suspension Field, Savage Punch
    – 3cc: Awaken the Bear, Rakshasa’s Secret
    – 4cc: Smite the Monstrous
    – 5cc: Murderous Cut

    Land (17): Sandsteppe Citadel, Windswept Heath, 2 Jungle Hollow, 6 Plains, 4 Forests, 3 Swamps

    This deck had a better curve and much better manafixing than the previous one. Unfortunately, I still went 0-2 in matches with it. Some of it was bad luck (not drawing a 3rd land on the draw), some of it was not having bombs, and some of it was having a limited number of ways of dealing with opposing bombs like Wingmate Roc.

    Another person who looked at the pool built the same deck, but with a 4th Swamp instead of the Rakshasa’s Secret. That is probably an improvement since the deck does really want to run 18 lands to increase the chances of having 3 land by turn 3, but it does mean that the deck is more likely to have to face opposing bombs that it can’t deal with.
