Deck Tech Arena Standard
Teferi Control
Standard BO1

26 Jan by LostInThought

Introduction This is my take on CGB's Trawler Control.  I kept finding myself running out of cards with the original version so I made a few changes to better fit my play style.   Omen vs. Tome In CGB's original version, Dream Trawler is the only card that offers card advantage. ...

[KHM] MonoRed Dwarves (aka Magda or bust
Traditional Standard

25 Jan by quantumquark

A primer from MTG Finance. Treasures. It's all about treasures. They make mana, and mana makes the money. It's a treasure, you see. So what do we do with our money? Invest. Invest in dragons. Invest in swords. Invest. In. Dwarves. Dwarves make treasures, and my boy*, Magda, makes them better than an...

Fling Experiment
Standard BO1

25 Jan by GrilledCheese

GAME PLAN: Experimental Overload Fling Make big Weird tokens with Experimental Overload and smash your opponent's face by throwing them in their face with a Fling. Before doing that, you must exhaust your opponent and fill your graveyard with instant and sorcery spells.   EARLY GAME: Keep a hea...

Golgari aristocrats
Traditional Historic

25 Jan by Razaele

Kill fast and outvalue. While being an aristocrats (or sacrifice) deck, this list packs lot of card advantage (most of the cards either filter with scry, draw cards or reuse the graveyard) and ton of incidental damage (which is the main win condition). It is difficult to whiff with CoCo due the 31 c...

Kaldheim Grixis Discard
Standard BO1

22 Jan by das@das

    This is a very speculative deck considering Kaldheim isn't yet, but when went to sleep last I couldn't stop thinking about all the fun and absurd things you could once Kaldheim hits standard. This is one the decks I was thinking of. Gixis Discard. One of my favorite archetypes ever. No...

MYTHIC 95++ The Long Bright Dark-Z FINAL
Standard BO1

21 Jan by Mulconaire

This deck is the definition of masochism in the current standard format. It is the Dark Souls of Magic Decks in current standard. The idea of the deck is to suffer, then suffer, then suffer some more, then breathe that ever-so-exquisite sigh of relief when you reach the light at the end of the tunne...

21 Jan by Falmotis

Big red control, yepp thats right red can do control too. How? Just jam all of the Chandras and run the board while shooting your opponent in their smug teferi avatar thats how. Lets start with Chandra's Regulator as its a key piece of the deck hence its a 4 of. (dont worry about drawing extras of t...

Jeskai Adventure Control
Historic BO1

20 Jan by SionConnery

I've missed playing with Adventure and the obnoxious Lucky Clover in standard and with how historic has been looking I didn't think the Temur version would be fast enough to deal with the hard aggro of Muxus and Mono Red in general. I've played a lot of Genesis Ultimatum since the Ikoria came out, s...

Standard BO1

20 Jan by Titanovix

Deck Update 1/25/2021 A big thanks to stormwraith, the channeler is a definite upgrade from the tome, it only let me down once, and that was because of a serious flood. A couple of deck tips to anyone that plays this. If you draw two lands and a spikefiled hazard, I would definitely hold the hazard,...

Abzan Yorion Mill
Standard BO1

19 Jan by Jiroxys

Like other Abzan Yorion decks, this deck has some late-game tricks up our sleeve. Unlike other Abzan decks, milling out the opponent is one of them. Lurrus of the Dream Den and The Binding of the Titans combo together. Whenever you pull out Binding, each player has to mill 3 cards. Used together wit...

Dimir Mill Tempo
Standard BO1

14 Jan by MrQirn

This is not your Mom's Dimir Rogue's deck. Isn't this just worse Dimir Rogues? Heck no, we're trying to accomplish some pretty different goals despite having some crossover in the cards we play. Mill & Tempo Unlike Rogues, this deck is completely committed to Mill as its win condition (although ...

If you've been wanting to get into historic but are scared because of the steep cost of entry and/or have been enjoying rogues in standard but are tired of the meta revolving around ways to stop your game plan this deck may be for you. Or you might just want to play a powerful, interactive deck, thi...

If you get bored of the meta, because it's late in the cycle and a new set release is still a few weeks down the line, I often find myself digging the budget decks around the web to build and play in "artisan historic" for fun, or just with a friend on a rainy evening and spend some quality time.

Historic BO1

08 Jan by ChrizzlyBear

INTRO I built the first version of this deck with Pioneer in mind, due to the format being new. In times like we are having now, I keep falling back to MTG:Arena and so I built the deck with what we got in Historic. I'm kind of proud of this deck, because even though we are playing with Commons/Unco...

Hi! So this is what the first week of 2021-lockdown in Germany produced for me: It's an updated list for a deck that was recently played on a Zendikar Tournament by a pro.   Originally the deck used to be Sultai. With Jace being the main wincon of the deck it was pretty solid. It. didn't do exc...
