A Fistful of Jank - Mono White Tap Dance - Evan Pringle (3/30/2014)

Occasionally I get an idea to try something in Magic that I know isn't going to work well, but it interests me enough that I smash together a deck and give it a shot. This is just such a happenstance. Let me explain first how this deck came about.

About two weeks before Born of the Gods was released, I was organizing my cards into one of the new holiday gift boxes, separating them by color when I began to notice just how many white cards there were that can tap my opponent's creatures. This was just interesting enough to make me want to try it.

I tossed in two copies of Imposing Sovereign

for its tap effect – to make the theme work for me in a winning sort of direction. Did it work for me? … We shall get to that.

I had some reservations about this deck pretty early on. For one thing, I was trying to put together a deck that really should be more focused than what I tend to make. Also, though I've played mono white before, it's not my preferred play style and I'm not super familiar with it. But most of all, I was concerned about the new Inspired mechanic making the tap effects less of a hindrance for my opponent.

Despite my misgivings – perhaps because of my misgivings – I took my deck to the local Friday Night Magic and had a good time.

In Round 1, I played against Phil and his red/green monsters deck. The match did not start well for me as I had to mulligan down to five cards, getting only a single land for the first two hands. With dizzying speed, Phil played out a Fanatic of Xenagos

Here's where I say I entered Round 4 meeting so-and-so with such-and-such a deck, but I got a bye for this round and thus my first “win” of the night. So I spent the hour listening to a podcast and playing Pocket Planes. Many passengers and much cargo were delivered.

Ultimately, I suspect there are better cards available for the effects I was after. The whole deck concept, though, was a poor matchup with pretty much anything that anybody else plays today. It's another tally-mark on the Fistful of Jank wall, though, and I'm glad it's over. What I'm planning for next time shall have a janky combo win condition, which is much more than this deck had.
