America Control

To start out this post I would like to say I am very sorry for not posting last week.  I have had no access to the internet for the past week or so due to issues with my wi-fi.  I'm happy to be back and hope to have some new Theros themed deck's up soon, but for now lets take a look at this deck.  I am also aware this is not standard legal, but I am still working on Theros decks so this is what I had on back up, sorry for not giving you a standard deck for this week.  Hopefully I will have a standard legal up next week

Other Spells

x4 Searing Spear
x4 Dissipate
x4 Supreme Verdict

Sideboard

x4 Geist of Saint Traft
x3 Cyclonic Rift
x3 Glaring Spotlight
x3 Witchbane Orb
x1 Azorius Charm
x1 Sphinx's Revelation

The deck is a very simple build.  Even though it is simple it isn't extremely easy to run.  If you have played a control deck before you will be just fine.  The deck is centered around Boros Reckoner, Restoration Angel, and the burn to help knock down the opponents life total to 0.  With the aid of the control cards in the deck it makes it easy to do.

The sideboard is there to help with match ups against hexproof and other control decks.  Glaring Spotlight will help deal with those annoying Invisible Stalkers and Geist of Saint Trafts.  Witchbane Orb will help with going against other control decks and burn decks.  Also in the sideboard is some removal and extra copies of cards already in mainboard.
