Not sure how seriously this deck is to be taken; but here's my current rough draft at "Reanimator" (More like Midrange with Reanimator topend; likely not quite good enough).

Creatures (13)
1 x Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
2 x Tireless Tracker
1 x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
1 x Disciple of the Ring
2 x Glyph Keeper
1 x Ishkanah, Grafwidow
1 x Noxious Gearhulk
2 x Honored Hydra
1 x Greenwarden of Murasa
1 x Sire of Stagnation

Planeswalkers (2)
1 x Liliana, the Last Hope
1 x Liliana, Death's Majesty

Instants and Sorceries (20)
3 x Fatal Push
3 x Grasp of Darkness
4 x Grapple with the Past
4 x Pieces of the Puzzle
2 x Never // Return
2 x Yahenni's Expertise
2 x Ever After

Lands (25)
3 x Island
4 x Swamp
1 x Forest
All of the rare Duals in Sultai except Lumbering Falls
3 x Aether Hub
4 x Evolving Wilds


Honored Hydra is very definitely on the verge of getting cut; she seems too bad if she's in hand and I don't have enough discard. Not sure what to include over it, though.

Another deck I would like to improve to make it competitive:

Sultai Energy-Counters

Creatures:

2 Glint-Sleeve Siphoner
2 Sylvan Advocate
3 Longtusk Cub
3 Winding Constrictor
1 Yahenni, Undying Partisan
2 Tireless Tracker
2 Thriving Rhino
3 Rogue Refiner
2 Bristling Hydra
1 Verdurous Gearhulk

Spells:

3 Fatal Push
3 Blossoming Defense
3 Die Young
2 Glimmer of Genius

Vehicles:

2 Aethersphere Harvester
1 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship

Planeswalkers:

1 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
1 Nissa, Steward of Elements

Lands:

1 Island
3 Swamp
4 Forest
2 Lumbering Falls
2 Hissing Quagmire
2 Woodland Cemetery
2 Drowned Catacomb
2 Hinterland Harbor
3 Aether Hub
2 Evolving Wilds

Is a Sultai energy deck with counters subtheme fueled by Winding Constrictor. I am worried if I am right with creatures such as Thriving Rhino or is just too noob for someone in rank 35?. I considered Woodland Wanderer, but probably won't work with Nissa, Steward of Elements. I recently made some changes over my original one that had Thriving Turtle but I feel this card is not good enough to sustain an enough win rate in ranks above 30. What do you think?

No turtle. -2 rhino, +2 Greenbelt Rampager.

Rhino and turtle aren’t good enough. Rampager can be hard to deal with if sticking T2. When drawn later, you can abuse its energy production by casting repeatedly and pumping the Cubs or Hydras before it’s sticking condition is met, or making sure you always have energy to draw with Siphoner or get lifelink continually active on Harvester (even pilots Harvester before returning to your hand). Also synergizes with Fatal Push, meeting its revolt condition. Even if you stick T3 or 4 without any shenanigans, it’s better as a 3/4 than Rhino is as 2/3.

Could consider Empyreal Voyager, as that can get out of control if opp can’t block it. If opp has flyers, it kinda sucks tho and I wouldn’t swap it for any creatures you’re running (except Rhino, but Greenbelt is better sub for that card)

What platform are you on?

Thank you for your suggestion. I will try Greenbelt Rampager, I don't know why I didn't include in this deck since I have it in my Temur Energy deck.

I play on Magic Duels, on Steam, I play under the nickname: AncestralPlayer. Would be amazing to try some decks with someone even having someone to play in Two-Headed Giant since most random player I play with have 100 card decks with nosense opening hands.

I love playing against fat stacks

Losing to one should be part of every players rite of passage

The only time I really hate fat stacks is when I’m playing mill. Fortunately the only mill deck I play has mill as a secondary win con. Makes me hate drawing tutelage tho.

@cs15 - ah, I’m on xbone. Going to make my testing of grixis burn off a bit - xbone competition generally weaker as I understand it, so the deck likely will have better win rates for me regardless of build.

Unfortunately I am in computer. At least in Steam (computer) highest ranks are really competitive. I never passed Rank 37, even having a wide range of decks: aggro, midrange, control. At these ranks, every deck usually has just 60 cards, sometimes I miss playing against those inconsistent 100 card decks.
