It’s time for another stand out deck! This weekend, it’s Trevor Humphries Jeskai Aggro deck that managed to win the SCG Standard Open.
This deck may look fairly familiar to other Jeskai decks, but it’s lacking some key spells like Goblin Rabblemaster and is running some powerhouses like Brimaz and Narset… wait, Narset? You mean that build around me commander? Yes. Narset, it turns out, is a difficult to deal with threat, and when your deck is hitting Jeskai Charm, Stoke the Flames, Lightning Strike, and Dig Through Time she can deal as much as 19 damage in one swing (4x Stoke/Jeskai Charm + 3 first strike).
Is it going to be a big player in standard? Who knows! Can you take it out to FNM and have a blast with it? Absolutely. Does it look like it’ll make a fantastic commander? You betcha. Personally, I grabbed a couple after seeing it on camera since it’s ~$3 each and worst case scenario I’m building an EDH deck around her and let the extra sit around and gain value long term.
Pretty sure he cheated, at least by screwing/flooding his opponents when he shuffled their decks
