Pioneer: Sultai Sidisi Whip aka Emracool Whip

Get it? Emracool Whip? Like Cool Whip which is a food product and Emrakul’s name sounds like it ends with “Cool” and the deck is based on Sidisi Whip and okay yeah you get it.

Sidisi Whip was pretty good in Standard. Really pretty good in fact. I saw a guy win a PPTQ with a Tromokratis in his Sidisi Whip deck. It wasn’t even sideboard tech. It was a main board high priority Whip target.

So what to do now with a larger card pool? Emrakul, of course. 13/13 flying, trample, protection from instants. With Whip of Erebos that also means gaining 13 life.

Since the deck aims to mill itself anyway, you could end up just hard casting Emrakul, too, thanks to Emrakul’s cost reduction ability. If they can destroy it, use Whip of Erebos to bring it back and gain 13 life.

Now I’ll try to whip up a deck list. And no, I’m not apologizing for my puns.

4 Gilded Goose
4 Stitcher’s Supplier
4 Narcomoeba
4 Satyr Wayfinder
4 Courser of Kruphix
4 Prized Amalgam
4 Sidisi, Brood Tyrant
4 Emrakul, the Promised End

3 Whip of Erebos
2 Fatal Push

23 Land

So here’s my first rough draft. Four Emrakuls might be too much but we can figure that out another day. That’s why it’s a rough draft and not “I’m totally winning the GP this weekend”.

I’m not sure how good the Narcomoeba/Prized Amalgam package will be but it’s worth trying. Stitcher’s Supplier should help the self mill enough to make them worth it. Amalgam triggering off both Whip and Narcomoeba hopefully lets you maintain some manner of board state if you can’t quite get the ball rolling.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.
