What a difference 4 days and not being a grouchy bastard makes! I'm thoroughly enjoying Standard and having a great time with Atarkafall :)

I'm on the landfall variant. I don't think it's the 'best' as I know that people are posting results with all 3 versions but it's the one I've had most success with. Abzan Aggro decks are starting to pack Self-Inflicted Wound though so it may be that a switch to the PVDDR tokens list is a better meta choice moving forward. Here's where I'm currently at

[deck=Atarkafall]
Land (24)
5 Forest
5 Mountain
2 Cinder Glade
4 Windswept Heath
4 Wooded Foothills
4 Bloodstained Mire

Creature (20)
4 Monastery Swiftspear
4 Scythe Leopard
4 Snapping Gnarlid
4 Abbot of Keral Keep
4 Den Protector

Instant (16)
4 Atarka's Command
4 Titan's Strength
3 Become Immense
3 Temur Battle Rage
2 Fiery impulse

SB (15)
3 Rending Volley
3 Roast
3 Arc Lightning
2 Outpost Siege
2 Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker
2 Fiery Impulse
[/deck]

I've given up on Modern - so I think it might be a great time to play standard again - only issue is that pedros has my 4x Abbot and I'm not willing to rebuy them. I like this all or nothing approach: list mainly because the lack of burn = no reach or hope against many list during the late game.
