This deck is made for the kind of magic player who wants to have a tournament playable deck without spending much money. This mono-white deck costs less than $10 to make. This deck is great for beginners or for experts; and it is deadly as long as you learn to use it. That is what I am here for.

The Decklist is as follows:

Like every other white weenie deck, to win you put out all your creatures quickly and keep attacking. But unlike other white weenie deck, this deck is tribal. That means all the creatures share a creature type. Because of this, there are cards like piety charm, shared triumph, gempalm avenger, daru warchief, and other cards that are really good in this deck but not in a regular white weenie. You can always leave two soldiers untapped for the catapult squad. If you do your opponent will be afraid to attack because you can block with the two or more soldiers and then tap them to deal some damage. Nice!

Now I will tell you why each card is in here.

-Like I said before, this card is NICE! With all your creatures being soldiers, this card is great just to have out to deal some damage.

- Well, obviously in a soldier deck, you would want a daru warchief. This gives all your creatures +1/+2 and they cost 1 less to play. What greatness!

is an all-purpose removal spell. You can use it to get more damage through, as well as wiping out your opponent's blockers with provoke and a pump spell. You can also use it as a regenerating blocker.

-This card is great for cycling to give your soldiers an extra boost. This is also good in combination with the stoic champion to make him a 5/5 first striker. You should always remember that you don’t have to cycle this, you can play if you need or want.

dGNsb2FrIFJ1bm5lcg==-This is deceptively good with the catapult squad. You can attack with, untap it when it gets blocked, and use it to tap for the catapult squad to deal some damage. Sweet!

Plainscycling 2 (You may pay 2 and discard this card to search your library for a Plains card, put it into your hand, and shuffle your library.)
- This is a good cycler to get a plains. You can also play this card, and if you have the warchief it is quicker to put out and stronger.

- This card is in all white weenie decks. This is a great card. You can play it for 2 or morph it up for 1. What's best about it is that you can use its ability to disable one of your opponent’s creatures.

, gives you three choices. You can either destroy an enchant creature, give a creature +2/+2, or make it so that your creatures don’t tap when they attack this turn. Either one you choose, it is a good affect. This is probably best one out of the five charms in the block.
