Deck Highlight: Standard Sultai Gyruda


Standard Sultai Gyruda by Shuichi Naono


Gyruda, Doom of DepthsKogla, the Titan ApeThassa, Deep-DwellingPolukranos, Unchained


This is a cool deck I found while browsing Standard results on MTGMelee. The deck is from a big Magic event by a player named Shuichi Naono and it looks pretty cool. It uses Gyruda, Doom of Depths, one of the forgotten companions, with a bunch of even cost cards, including four copies of Kogla, the Titan Ape and a couple Thassa, Deep-Dwelling as well as some Polukranos, Unchained. The deck isn’t a combo deck, but rather has control and midrange elements attempting to win fair games.

The deck is able to use Wolfwillow Haven and Tangled Florahedron for two-mana acceleration, as well as Solemn Simulacrum and the oh-so-powerful Binding the Old Gods for four-mana acceleration. I love to see decks like this deep into a Standard format that do something fun and different. This is a deck that I’ll surely give a try!
