Today we have an exciting list for you showcasing one of the underappreciated tribes in Magic: Clerics. Zendikar Rising has a plethora of new awesome "Clerics matter" cards so let's check them out:

The goal with this deck is to stave off early threats with cards like Archfiend's Vessel and Speaker of the Heavens while gaining life and growing some of your Clerics. Then after you get one of the legends featured above down, things start getting really out of hand for your opponents while you draw a bunch of cards and reanimate your friends.

Check out the full decklist below and the video to learn all about the synergies this deck has to offer.
