Improved Strossus (Rate it I'll rate yours.),
How it Works
Thanks too all of you this deck is continuing to get better, and I hope it will some more, thanks for any help! I do change it as people make suggestions. Heres how it works....
There are three ways the deck can be played:
Version1-(against creature heavy decks)
Turn1 Gemestone Mine Bird of Paradise. Turn2 Land and then use Burried Alive for Reya, Strossus and the Dragoons. Turn3 Land cast Victimize sacing the Bird and put Reya And Strosus into play. Then attack for kill and with their upkeeps gain 5 life every turn via Dragoons.
Version2-(If you don't get main combo)
Turn1-Land Elf or Bird. Turn2 and 3 land and cast Dueling Grounds or Benalish Trapper, it doesn't matter in what order. Then you wait for the Reya Strossus combo for win.
Version3- (For against Blue bounce and counters)
Use Vampiric Tutors to get both the City and a Duress into your hand. You Duress getting rid of a counter and cast the City. That will stop them from countering for the rest of the game, you just set up the win conditions like in Version 1 except instaed of getting the Dragoons get the Elvish Piper into your Graveyard and Victimize in Reya and the Piper.
During your next turn use Reyas ability to get Stossus into play.You wnat the Piper instead because Blue will bounce them to your hand during their turn, and the Piper makes a lot easier to cast Reya and Stossus over and over again until you win.
Other cards like the Oath of Gouls are really usefull against burn to get bake cards like the birds and elves and all the other creatures. Hope you like the deck...
