Introduction

To grind Arena quests and wins, I ran a budget version of this Selesnya Adventure tokens deck proposed by Nick Prince.

Results

So far 6-1 (12-4) starting in Silver 4:
  • Dimir Control: win 2-0
  • Mono-B: lost a key turn to disconnection, but don't think it mattered, loss 0-2
  • Jeskai Fires Superfriends: win 2-1
  • Jeskai Fires Cavaliers: win 2-1; Boarded in the third Questing Beast, boarded out Gideon on draw (he seemed okay on the play). Didn't see Fires game one, so didn't board in extra Knights of Autumn until G3. Questing Beast and Giant Killer were great. After this match, replaced Harmonious Archon in sideboard with Trostani Discordant
  • WB Knights: win 2-0; t3 Loxodon led to a big attack and a possibly premature concession; sided out 2 Tithe Takers, brought in 2 Glass Caskets and Ajani Greathearted; mulled to 6 off a 1-lander, opponent got stuck on 2 lands and roped the game out. Not sure I should even count it. Silver 2.
  • Simic Flash: win, 2-0. G1, Raise the Alarm in response to a T2 Brineborn Cutthroat led to a T3 Loxodon which made for a board presence even after bounced, then attacking and holding up mana got there, with Giant Killer and Tithe Taker doing good work. G2 on the draw had T3 Loxodon countered by a Frilled Mystic, but the T4 Shifting Ceratops went the distance with assists from a pair of Giant Killers to take care of as many Nightpack Ambushers before they could be declared as blockers and a 0-mana Conclave Tribunal that took out a Nissa.
  • Golgari Adventures: win 2-0 to get into Silver 1. Trostani was good from the board to aggro them out on the draw. To fulfill a Red/Blue quest switched to Mono-R Cavalcade to get into Gold 4.

For budget reasons, I played 1 Blossoming Sands in place of a Temple Garden, a sideboard Gideon became Ajani the Greathearted and a March of the Multitudes became a Harmonious Archon. Don't do this if you want to maximize your competitive results.
