Here’s a look at a Devotion/Constellation/Whip build in the current Standard format. It’s pretty robust and does well against a lot of the smaller creature decks out there.

Sideboard: 10
1 Thoughtseize

It’s somewhat similar to the Sidisi Whip deck played at worlds, without the unnecessary Sidisi, Blood Tyrant and requires one less color. It doesn’t have any ‘fancy’ tricks, but that doesn’t exactly matter much. You get Pharika to make a ton of little deathtouch blockers which will trigger constellation at instant speed as well (drawing cards with Eidolon of Blossoms or shrinking their army with Doomwake Giant)

“Just because they know whats coming, doesn’t mean they can play around it.” – David Schnayer, GB Constellation player/ PPTQ winner
