My Kids’ Decks

 

So I have a new project.

I am generally VERY careful about pushing Magic onto my kids.  Nothing would enrich my life more than if they fell in love with the game, but I do not want to force it on them and risk turning them off.  So I have been treading lightly (arguably too lightly.)  But my 3 oldest kids are 6, 7, and 9 now, so I think it is time to finally dive a little deeper.  As such, I have built them 5 different mono color, 40 card, Old School legal decks.  Just 4 copies of 6 different cards + 16 basic lands for now.  About as simple as it gets, although I did include pump knights over regular knights and some slightly more complicated stuff like Fireball and Berserk, just to add a little bit of spice as mono vanilla creatures is boring AF.

The plan is to let them get their feet wet by playing these for a few weeks/months.  Then, once they learn the ropes and start to get bored of the same ole’ decks, I will show them an assortment of other/better cards they can add or swap into their decks.  All Old School legal of course.  I plan on recording all the changes they make, and seeing how things evolve over time.  I will post all their changes here.

Also before you complain about the lands not being Old School legal, please note that my 500+ Alpha/Beta basics are already in the Broken Draft and my other 23 Old School decks.  Plus I love Mirage/Urza’s/Tempest lands.  Sue me 🙂

Episode 4: Sindbad

Just learned this card was not called “Sinbad” after googling it to find a pic.

Reanimator

Am not running Timetwister here, which may be a mistake.  I give up the broken early Twisters to not draw a dead card later when I been doing work filling up the yard.  Deck could also run a Transmute or two, but that would likely mean cutting lands for Fellwars, and I wanna keep my land count high for Sindbad.  Channel also a consideration.  Ring of Renewal is real spicy here as well.

 

Enchantress

When laying out this Enchantress deck I realized it is likely too hungry for U and G mana to really run Land Tax (again if only Enchantress cost G1!)  I did keep white in the deck for Spirit Link, which seems counterintuitive, but Spirit Link is good on turn 5 while Land Tax gets a lot worse as turns go by.  Deck should certainly pay Tutor as well, but wanted more room for the spicy stuff.
