My vision on an update to WAR set gate deck. Gate deck itself is targeted on getting lots of value by playing gates, and then use this mana to play massive finishers.


  • [[Gatebreaker Ram]] - your main creature in the deck. Pumps up from gates, becoming a ridiculously huge in late game.
  • [[Gate Colossus]] - another good creature for gate deck, who can reanimate and become a real pain in the ass for your opponent.
  • [[Archway Angel]] - not the best stats, but can heal you huge amount of hp potentially, so it works great against agro decks
  • [[Hydroid Krasis]] - heals you and draws. A good way to utilize lots of mana you have.
  • [[Guild Summit]] - the most important card in your deck. You want to stick it turn 3-4 and start making lots of value by playing lands. With bunch of gates in your deck it draws you just lots of cards.
  • [[Circuitous Route]] - does a lot in this deck. It ramps you up, thins your deck from lands, and can color stabilize. Plus with [[Guild Summit]] it also draws you 2 cards or more (if there more than 1 Guild Summit on the board).
  • [[Gates Ablaze]] - great removal to clear your board from enemies. What is also good is that [[Gatebreaker Ram]] won't die from it as it have 2 of his personal toughness.
  • [[Lava Coil]] - basic removal for early game or for annoying creatures such as [[Rekindling Phoenix]]
  • [[Banefire]] - good finisher or planeswalker removal. The amount of mana you have will allow to fire it for lots of damage.
  • [[Finale of Glory]] - another finisher, but not really realiabale against control as long as it can play wrath on their following turn. So feel free to use it under X=10 to put a pressure on opponent or protect your own face from enemy creatures
  • [[Mass Manipulation]] - with lots of mana you will have you can steal almost entire board from the opponent easily turn around the game. Stealing enemy Teferi, Liliana or Bolas just feels so good.
  • [[Finale of Devastation]] - your win-con spell. Works especially good with your [[Gatebreaker Ram]] as it have trample. Play it for 10 and you get >20 power and toughness creature with trample running in the opponent face right away. And if you have another rams or colossuses on the board you probably will win.
  • [[Jace, Wielder of Mysteries]] - your alternative win-con. Due to amount of cards you draw you can deck out pretty fast. So Jace fits quite well there to win by drawing your entire deck.


  • [[Archway Angel]] - more of them for agro match ups
  • [[Knight of Autumn]] - will help you with enchantments or artifacts. Also goes into main against agro
  • [[Cindervines]] - will slowly chip away control's lifes. Plus also helps you to deal with artifacts and enchantments
  • [[Negate]] - for control match-ups
  • [[Shivan Fire]] - helps you to deal with fast agro and have potential to hit bigger targets.
  • [[Sylvan Awakening]] - good trick against controls that can potentially win you a game
  • [[Time Wipe]] - will clear a board for you and also save your creature
  • [[Narset, Parter of Veils]] - in control match ups slows their draw which will deplete their resources faster, also can fetch you lots of usefull stuff.
