Deck of the Week: UB GraveGames

Hey peeps, its deck of the week portion once again. For this episode, Ill show to you the recent build that made a huge success in Magic-League LBC (Lorwyn Block Constructed) trial tournaments. The deck compo has similarities with the old UB Mannequin way back the pre-Morningtide days, utilizing comes-into-play abilities and a little of counter magic and reanimation.

What's peculiar about this deck is the abuse of River Kelpie's ability that triggers card drawing for every permanent that comes into play or is played from the graveyard and is very useful when combined with Retrace. Here is the list piloted by Holzi and was the champion of the recent Lorwyn block trial (Eventide legal) in Magic-League.
