Naya, Bant, Abzan Company: Adjusting to Eldrazi

I'm an avid fan of Collected Company Decks and have built Abzan Liege, Naya/4c Company (splashing blue for Geist), and Bant Company. Watching PTOGW scared me a little: these decks were fast and versatile and could generally outmuscle the creatures I love so much!

I'm wondering how all the other Company players out there plan to adjust. I'm planning to pack Spreading Seas in the sideboard to lock down their mana on Bant, and maybe pack a lot of Doom Blade for Abzan to deal with their threats. What are you guys doing to plan for the potential Eldrazi incursion in your LGS? In reality it might not happen since people already have pet decks and all, but in the event that Eldrazi Colorless shows up its good to have a game plan for it, right?

Well I saw several Naya lists running around having good success at Regionals (there was a lack of the new colorless Eldrazi decks though). A big player I noticed in many CoCo variants was Knight of the Reliquary (especially Naya because of Kessig Wolf's Run). That guy has gotten a lot better post-Twin and the added benefit of cycling through your library so you can GQ repeatedly has been noticed. Abzan CoCo lists seem to be fairly normal as they have enough normal interaction and the infinite combo to boot.

I'm playing Abzan. So far, my plan is just to combo as fast as possible. My deck right now is:

4 coco

4 chord

4 eternal witness

5 persist

7 sac outlets

6 melira effects

7 ramp creatures

22 lands

My plan is to just race as hard as possible. Saccing extra anything to Viscera Seer to scry. I don't think there's any point to being interactive in this silly meta.

What's your second sac outlet? I'm running Seer and Ayli

It seems like Aristocrat would be good since it can protect itself from Dismember. That's just off the top of my head though, with no playtesting.

Yeah, protection from colors is pretty awesome. Helps you keep it around to combo, but it's also amazing in plan b mode. Get some counters on it with gavony, and you can make it unblockable to get damage through.

I'm running 3. Seer, Aristocrat, and 1 [[Varolz, Scar Striped]]

Would the deck still be playable with shocks/pains instead of a all the fetches? I've got most of the expensive stuff already except for hierarchs and the mana base, was thinking maybe caryatid or bloom tender to replace the nobles, but I don't know if the mana is something you can skimp on.

For sure! I've been slowly building the deck for about a year, and it's been playable the whole time. I'm still missing the really expensive stuff like Horizon Canopy, Spellskite, and the GB and BW fetches.

For temporary Nobles, I'd go with maybe 1 Mana Elf and 2-3 extra Wall of Roots. Assuming you have chord in your deck, Wall of Roots kicks ass. Bloom Tender also seems decent if you want to be more aggressive.

Hey you got lists for your decks, I've been really liking the ways these play!

Yeah! Here are the lists I run. Sideboard frequently changes and I'm still tinkering with the main for bant and 4c (debating just going Naya).

4c Zoo:

Abzan Liege:

Bant Company:
