Decklist

Description

I’ve been using White Weenies exclusively since the last rotation and have consistently made Mythic. This is my latest version since the release of M21 and the August bans. This deck is built around a synergy between permanent anthem spells, creatures that spawn tokens upon death, and Elspeth. So lets break down the cards:

Raise the Alarm and Loxodon: Every white weenie deck since rotation should have full sets of these cards. Loxodon is the white weenies players best weapon and raise the alarm is the best way to help get it out on Turn 3.

Glorious Anthem and Heraldic Banner: There are two main ways to achieve an anthem effect for your weenies. Permanent enchantments or +1 counters on each. I’ve tried building decks with unbreakable formation and basri’s solidarity and while those cards are a great way to buff your weenies, using Anthem+Banner means you are less vulnerable to board wipes.

Hunted Witness, Garrison Cat, Tithe Taker: These creatures work great with banner+anthem because if they die you still get a buffed weenie. They also make great blockers against other Aggro decks, particularly if they can take the attacking creature down with it. Tithe Taker is also particularly useful against Flash decks.

Fearie Guidemother and Gaint’s Killer: Unfortunately not all our creatures can have afterlife effects, so we can round out our weenies with adventure spells. I like to think of these creatures as weenies+, because you get the weenie you need + it can be used as either the removal or evasion you need to get that last bit of damage in.

Elspeth: My Girl! This is what makes my deck unique. I don’t know why she fell out of fashion because she’s a fantastic card with either an immediate increase to damage or she can build your board state. Banners help make sure that you can get this card out on a 21 lands deck. You also get fantastic value from her tokens with anthems+banners out. Her life gain ability has even saved me from damage that can’t be avoided otherwise like when playing rakdos sac decks.

Mana base: 18 plains makes sure you have at least one, and I found you don’t need more then 3 Castle Ardenvales to reliably get at least one when you need it.
