Khans of Tarkir Event Deck

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

Some news on the mothersite today that some Magic: the Gathering players may be interested to hear - the Khans of Tarkir Event Deck.  The Khans of Tarkir Event Deck gives players an easy way to jump into a Standard tournament, like Friday Night Magic, with a powerful deck and has the following contents:
• Ready-to-play 60-card deck
• 15-card Sideboard
• Spindown life counter
• Strategy insert
• Deck Box

We know quite a few players who pick up the event deck and with only a few minor tweaks (typically just a two or three extra rares from the card shop or online retailer like MTG Mint Card), and then you're good to go.  In fact, our buddy Rick, co-owner at OMG! Games here in Barrie has been using Event Decks at Friday Night Magic Events and we'll freely admit that the decklist kicks butt.   

Anywhoos, on to the decklist !

Creature (25)
1 Herald of Anafenza
3 Mardu Hateblade
3 Tormented Hero
1 Bloodsoaked Champion
2 Chief of the Edge
2 Chief of the Scale
2 Seeker of the Way
3 Oreskos Swiftclaw
3 Mardu Skullhunter
1 Pain Seer
1 Mardu Hordechief
1 Herald of Torment
2 Timely Hordemate

Sorcery (1)
1 Rush of Battle

Instant (2)
1 Bile Blight
1 Silence the Believers
Artifact (1)
1 Spear of Heliod

Enchantment (7)
1 Spirit Bonds
2 Banishing Light
2 Raiders' Spoils
1 Dictate of Erebos
1 Dictate of Heliod

Land (24)
1 Caves of Koilos
4 Scoured Barrens
10 Plains
9 Swamp

Sideboard (15)
2 Despise
2 Solemn Offering
3 Glare of Heresy
3 Dark Betrayal
1 Drown in Sorrow
2 Tormod's Crypt
2 Brain Maggot
 We rather like this list.  In fact, this was not too far removed from one of the first new standard format decks we were going to develop for the next FNM event.  Our only criticism is that out of the 10 rares in here, only 2 are from Khans of Tarkir.  We should have liked a bit more if WotC threw in some of the sweepers like Utter End / End Hostilities or even Grim Haruspex.
