With the exception of the manabase, this deck is entirely made from Zendikar Rising, based entirely around one of the oldest keyword abilities in Magic: kicker. This time around WotC has really leaned into the mechanic with a ton of "kicker matters" cards.

The game plan is simple. Get a few Roost of Drakes and Vine Gecko going and dizzy your opponents with a plethora of triggers, counters, and tokens. Not to mention this is pretty cheap to build compared to some of the other lists floating around Standard. So grab some dice and check out the full list below and some sweet games in the video.
