We’ve got a 2-for-1 today. Time to jump back into Pioneer with Bant Spirits! This deck has consistently put up top-8 finishes and is likely the best way to be aggro and disruptive against the Combo decks in Pioneer. Bant Spirits competes against Combo with Mausoleum Wanderer, Spell Queller, and counterspells from the sideboard. It can compete with Aggro decks by tapping them down with Nebelgast Herald to tempo them out!


Bant Spirits Fears NOTHING

The Pioneer format is dominated by Dimir Inverter and Lotus Breach combo decks. The answer? Spirits! Tribal synergies and counterspells will be our route to victory! The creatures do double duty, disrupting spell based decks and attack to race the creature-based decks! The deck is very strong and nothing is worth banning in it, a great deck to pick up for the lifetime of Pioneer.

Thanks for tuning in.
