Historic Anthology II

It feels great to play Historic right now, there are a lot of brews out there to check out and also new Ranked Ladders to play! These new ladders will also count towards your progress in our Constructed ladder! If you prefer to play the events we also have new ladders for those too. Let's get right into some decks you can try out, I'm starting off with my favorites and working my way down.

 

Thalia, Guardian of Thrabenimage is a card you will see a lot of in Historic, so let us start off with a deck from content creator ThyrixSyx using her in his "Death and Taxes" deck which includes a great video of him going through the deck and also playing it. Death and Taxes is a Legacy deck in control style and not to be confused with the classic archetype White Weenie. Basically it tries to 'tax' the opponent's resources using cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thrabenimage and Rishadan Portimage. The deck is famous for its number of tricks it can do and ThyrixSyx has created his Historic take on it here.

LegenVD's Naya Ranger uses the new card Ranger of Eosimage with a bunch of Giants from Throne of Eldraine, a very interesting list coupled with a deck tech and gameplay video.

Jeskai Fires is a really powerful deck in Standard right now, and yes it is even more powerful in Historic JMGH provides us with a great deck and a video with gameplay, unfortunately not easy to us non-Spanish speakers to understand but the decklist is FIRE, none the less.

Gildenmagier has a great writeup of his Boros aggro deck. He averages a win rate of 72%/65% (play/draw) with it and has around 150 games played. A solid deck if you like smacking people in the face with the Embercleaveimage, and to be honest, who doesn't?

Another great detailed deck writeup, this time from user leon_stue. If you bought the Anthology pack with all the new cards, prepare to put them to use because this deck uses a lot of them and also includes the reward card from an earlier event The Gitrog Monsterimage. Knight of the Reliquaryimage, Thalia, Guardian of Thrabenimage, Terravoreimage and Maelstrom Pulseimage have all found a home in this deck. a very popular deck with a lot of views and downloads.
