Deck Highlight: Standard Jeskai Runes


Standard Jeskai Runes by KELMASTERP


It took me quite a while to come up with an interesting, different deck for today, but I finally found one in the last Standard Challenge Top 8 results.


Runeforge ChampionGoldspan DragonRune of Flight


KELMASTERP finished in second place with this Jeskai Runes build that uses Runeforge Champion to fetch one of the Runes for free and then ideally, enchant Goldspan Dragon to start chaining them on it while also generating mana in the process thanks to the Dragon’s ability.


Feather, the Redeemed


This deck is very similar to the old Feather, the Redeemed builds, though you’re missing a cheap protection card to stop your opponent from being able to kill your creatures with removal spells in response. 


Sejiri Shelter // Sejiri Glacier


Sejiri Shelter is trying to do a Gods Willing impression, but keeping two mana up is a lot harder than one in a deck like this.



I don’t think this deck will be a Tier 1 contender, but anything with powerful cards like Showdown of the Skalds and Goldspan Dragon seems pretty reasonable to me these days, so if you like off-meta decks and want to play something different, give it a try.
