AVR Event Decks

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

You may recall our post at waay back on start of April where we spoiled an early image of Avacyn Restored Event Decks - well WoTC Monty gave us the low-down with deck lists in yesterday's Aracana.  Most Magic the Gathering players we've been talking to are not calling it a stellar but most certainly solid.  Let's have a looky-see . . .

Humanity's Vengeance (w/u)
Main Deck - 60 cards
24 lands : 2  Glacial Fortress, 9  Island, 1  Moorland Haunt, 12  Plains

25 creatures : 1  Blade Splicer (R), 4  Fiend Hunter, 4  Gideon's Lawkeeper, 1  Mirran Crusader (R), 3  Nearheath Pilgrim, 2  Nephalia Smuggler, 1  Phyrexian Metamorph (R), 4  Porcelain Legionnaire, 3  Tandem Lookout, 2  Wingcrafter

11 other spells
: 2  Dismember, 1  Divine Deflection (R), 2  Mental Misstep, 3  Oblivion Ring, 3  Righteous Blow

Sideboard : 3  Cathedral Sanctifier, 2  Cloudshift, 2  Inquisitor Exarch, 4  Mana Leak, 3  Negate, 1  Pacifism

Death's Encroach (b)
Main Deck : 60 cards 
24 lands : 24  Swamp

21 creatures : 1  Cemetery Reaper (R), 2  Crypt Creeper, 4  Diregraf Ghoul, 1  Geralf's Messenger (R), 3  Ghoulraiser, 1  Gloom Surgeon (R), 1  Gravecrawler (R), 4  Highborn Ghoul, 4  Skinrender

15 other spells : 3  Altar's Reap, 3  Despise, 2  Dismember, 2  Doom Blade, 3  Go for the Throat, 2  Lashwrithe  (R)

Sideboard : 2  Appetite for Brains, 2  Crypt Creeper, 3  Deathmark, 1  Despise, 2  Distress, 1  Ghoulraiser, 1  Surgical Extraction (R), 3  Triumph of Cruelty

These 60-card decks come with a 15-card sideboard and are perfect for use in Standard play tournaments like Friday Night Magic or Game Day celebrations. They also come with a Spindown life counter and a reusable card box.  Unlike Intro Packs, these 60-card builds are designed to let the player jump straight into a standard-format event with a very decent deck that should be competitive, and for a MSRP of about $25, it's not a bad deal.

Finally,
One suggestion is modify to tast or pimp the above event decklists by heading over to MTG Mint Card and getting additional rares or perhaps even foils.
