Deck Ideas - Kor

~
Good Day MTG peeps,

With the newest Magic the Gathering set now out, Worldwake, there appears to be a lot of players out there looking to either build a new deck or tweak an existing one.

To this end, we decided to run a series of articles providing some very general deck ideas. NOTE - these decks are meant for FUN casual kitchen table play or for standard constructed play at Friday Night Magic. You will note that the cards we choose may not be quite budget but will certainly not include expensive bombs the like of Wallet-Slayer Angel. We would like you to have a look and tweak these to your style as you see fit. Please drop us a comment

The first deck idea up is the new White Weenie - the Kor . . .


The equipment-loving Kor just got a new bag of tricks with Stoneforge Mystic which will allow you to look for that special piece of equipment. We suggest that you may want to consider using either Narrow Escape or Kor Skyfisher to return Stoneforge Mystic to your hand and play it again.

Main Deck - Equipped Kor

Kor Duelist - Double Strike when equipped works for us - especially an ublockable double-striker.

Armament Master - Incredible Kor pumper - a must have. Kor Aeronaut - effiecient 2/2 flier for 2.

Stoneforge Mystic - excellent tutor for your equipment - will also let you cast expensive equipment on the cheap.

Wall of Reverence - not necessary - some defence may be warranted.

Brave the Elements - colour protection for your white weenies.

Journey to Nowhere - nice threat removal.

Marshal's Anthem - solid pump to your critters.

Conqueror's Pledge - great Kor soldier token producer.

Trusty Machete - inexpensive equipment providing a pump.

Basilisk Collar - Vampire Nighthawk now in equipment format - just add it to your Kor Aeronaut.

Whispersilk Cloak - Excellent equipment providing shroud and unblockable.

Quietus Spike - Try to get this piece of equipment on a flier or on a creature before your put the
Whispersilk Cloak on it.

Emeria, the Sky Ruin
- late game option for creature recursion.

Plains - of course.

Sideboard

Kor Firewalker - pro-red necessity.

Devout Lightcaster - pro-black necessity.

Refraction Trap - some relief against red burn.

Blazing Torch - necessity for vampire / zombie decks.

Trailblazer's Boots - an option against all those decks running non-basic lands now out.

Anywhoos - This does look fun - tweak this, take this out for a spin at the kitchen table or to your FNM and get back to us with your comments, feedback or constructive criticism.

Very nice deck, with the right equipment and all. i think the wall is pretty useless here, maybe the other flying Kor will be better instead.
Why did you leave the 1 drop Kor that gets buffed and flying when equipped? It's a shame not to start the game with a guy on your side?

agree tat the wall is useless. drop it.

kitesail apprentice is a better option that the kor duelist for a 1 drop.

if you're just looking to boost creatures p/t, go for honor the pure. marshal's anthem is for reanimation and the boost in white.

dun go for refraction trap. harm's way is a better option. you'll need removals, i suggest o-ring or journey to nowhere if you don't want to buy path to exile.

once you put on a whispersilk on a creature, it gains shroud and whatever that was attached to it falls off right away, just so you know. quietis spike is way too expensive (casting cost) to play effectively. i'll suggest kitesail, it gives the guy wearing it flying too!

trailblazer and blazing torch... seems a bit redundant. i think u need to work on removals more.

just my share of thought. ;)

I hope you have some ideas for an esper/artifact deck. Master of Etherium and Lodestone Golem are BFFs.

I think its better to maindeck the Kor Firewalker and lessen the copy of the Equipments to just 1 of each, since you have mystic to look for it. Relying too much on the equipment is one of the downsides of the deck and I have to agree with the previous comments that the wall should be dropped.

An idea I always have liked, especially for miss STONEFORGE, is that she can bring out UNSYTHE, KILLER OF KINGS.. Just a thought for you. =] It's a brutal equipment that you can play in a mono white deck.

Robb said...

sorry, you are right. u can put on other equipment first before you put on whispersilk

Vanadio on MTGO said...

You can have other equipments on the same creature with a whispersilk cloak. You just need to equip the cloak last. It gives _shroud_ not _protection_.

kitesail apprentice is better than kor duelist. instead of the wall put in kor outfitter. instead of brave the elements put in Nomads' Assembly. one more emeria, the sky ruin, one less plains. honor of the pure and path to exile are better than journey to nowhere and marshalls. just my opinion but the rest of the deck is fine though. just a note: dont put basilisk collar and Quietus Spike on the same creature, its stupid.
