I don't see that much value in white, tbh. I understand the appeal with the fixing options, but GB Briar Snake would be more consistent with only a minor power drop.

Magic's a simple game, 2 people take turns playing cards and in the end Divinevert wins 2-0...

Well, in this version Selfless Spirit is important removal Defense, the other reason is Ajani plus his Oath.
Angelic purge, as I mentioned is a hit-all removal with synergy and there's also anguished unmaking.
Gideon is just goodstuff here.

Stockpile is cute, but useful.

Also, an extra color makes Woodland Wanderer much better (and the Unbridled Growths can make it even bigger)
The briar Snake deck benefits from white. The non-briar version should probably be :g::b:, but I like this version and it has beaten other Snake decks, so there's that...

So this is pretty much my final draft of the briar deck. Its mid-rangish and easily goes very tall. Its been quite consistent on the ladder at R40 and can hold its own against most of the meta.

The life of briar

Creature(17)
2 x Selfless Spirit
3 x Winding Constrictor
1 x Yahenni, Undying Partisan
4 x Bloodbriar
2 x Tireless Tracker
2 x Woodland Wanderer
1 x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
1 x Verdurous Gearhulk
1 x The Gitrog Monster

Instant(4)
2 x Fatal Push
2 x Anguished Unmaking

Sorcery(4)
2 x Angelic Purge
2 x Yahenni's Expertise

Enchantment(8)
3 x Unbridled Growth
3 x Hidden Stockpile
2 x Oath of Ajani

Planeswalker(3)
1 x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
1 x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
1 x Ajani Unyielding

Land(24)
2 x Shambling Vent
2 x Plains
3 x Swamp
2 x Hissing Quagmire
2 x Canopy Vista
4 x Forest
2 x Sunpetal Grove
2 x Woodland Cemetery
1 x Westvale Abbey
4 x Evolving Wilds

Created using Magic Duels Helper: http://www.magicduelshelper.com

Don't underestimate the briar, it can grow very quickly. An idea curve goes something like:
T1 Unbridled
T2 Snake
T3 briar (sac the Unbridled if you don't need the fixing and briar goes 4/5, out of Grasp range)
T4 Tracker into Evolving Wilds (which you sac and briar is 6/7 out of Grasp/burn range) and you have a clue ready for next turn.
T5 drop Nissa or Oath of Ajani and go to town...

Dream play? Not really, that's the kind of draws I get all the time... The deck has plenty of cheap bombs that get very big and can apply pressure very early, most decks will have a hard time dealing with so many.
I guess you could add the Last Push and more angelic purge which, are top-notch is this deck, because they exile all those troublesome Vehicles and tutelages while making the briar grow (don't be afraid to sac Land, the deck has plenty).
Weaknesses: a tendency to flood later on and a certain weakness to flying. Things like Avacyn can be a problem, but going much taller than her usually helps and don't forget those purges too.
Enjoy!


I like you'r deck. but i try a black and green deck (just for see https://www.magicduelshelper.com/deckli ... ba16d93435 )

I need to talk a little about the oldest deck I’m play ne. It’s Zerris’ The Fading Light. An absolutely elegant control build. It’s in the running for the top five best decks ever in Duels. It’s still going with the original build from July 24, 2016. I just wanted to give it a quick shout out cuz I just ended a 38-0 win streak after running into conflux Superfriends

Gotta stop keeping those two landers.

Current record is 73-9

It escaped losing two in a row already so it and four other lucky deck builders are still in the running for best Duels deck of all time.
