Oni-Cult with a twist.

The idea of this deck is to explode. It's the classic Oni-Cult Anvil and Dragonspark Reactor double engine package, generating tons of cheap creatures and artifacts early game and clogging up the board for the opponent. We want to generate tons of creatures, then ton...

How can we make mono-black even better? While also packing enough heat to destroy mono-black midrange?

Splash white and green.

According to WotC, the core colors of each wedge have officially changed to match their Ikoria counterparts. Abzan's core is now black, making the oppressiv...

Historic BO1

05 Sep by slayeroffrog

update: replaced yawgmoth with hoardmaster, this should add consistency to the combo, as once the infinite mana loop is stablished hoardmaster allows us to draw through our deck to search for a finisher, or it can help find a missing combo piece if its due or die time.

Faith Requires Sacrifice
Commander

01 Sep by Avacyn_Believer

This deck traces its origins back to when I started playing EDH and my first attempts at a Boros deck with an angel as the Commander. Voltron style became one of my favourite styles to play and it was inevitable to end up with my favourite Magic character (Archangel Avacyn) as the Commander. ...

[DMU] Jaxadrabik Controlish
Traditional Standard

26 Aug by quantumquark

Jaxis and Ratadrabik are the combo. First, you can get down Ratadrabik (Jaxis can be first, but Rata has ward). Then, you can blitz Jaxis into play. Then, use Jaxis's ability, making a copy of Rata. That copy of Rata will die to the legend rule (and you'll draw a card to replace the discarded one...

[HIS] [TIER S] Treasures Combo
Historic BO1

25 Aug by mmcreativo

INTRODUCTION

This in an original deck based on auto-win effects that will catch your opponents off guard. If your opponent doesn't play any creatures, you win. If he does, you wipe the board and win by other means. It's all about trickery. I've realized most people don't u...

If you are reading this chances are that you are a vivid fan of doom foretold – just like most of my opponents roping me when facing this deck on Arena.

Should you be oblivious to the Doom archetype though do not worry for I am going to provide a short summary of it here...

Grinning Birgi Combo
Pioneer

10 Aug by Szmaglord

This is one of the most annoying combo decks I've met.

With Hazoret's Monument and Birgi, God of Storytelling you can cast Grinning Ignus and return it to hand, redraw from monument if necessary, and basically gain infinite mana. You loot untill you find a wincon and that's it.

Satoru ETB/Flicker (option 1)
Commander

05 Aug by WanderingTaoist

This deck runs on an ETB theme, so the creatures mostly have ETB triggers, plus a bunch of cards to flicker them or copy the triggers.  Any instant speed flicker spells will both help you get a few more ETB effects on the stack, but also allow your creatures/permanents to evade targeted remo...

🧠MYSTIC PESTS - high IQ anti-aggro
Standard BO1

05 Aug by MrQirn

Mystic Reflection is an incredibly good card that I think many are sleeping on. It can act as:

1) Removal (turning your opponent's entering creature into something weak, like a 1/1 Pest token)

2) Copy the best thing your opponent controls (for when you're behind)

3) Copy the ...

Satoru List (for Justin; phase 1)
Commander

04 Aug by WanderingTaoist

So I would build your core around cheap-to-cast creatures with Shadow (can't be blocked by any creature without shadow, BUT also can't block any creatures without shadow) and other cheap "can't be blocked" creature options.  They don't need any extra cards to make them unblockable, ...

Mono Black Control/Midrange

01 Aug by PenguinHugs

This decklist is centered around building up toward an inevitable end and has multiple ways of getting there, which is something I always enjoy as it keeps things fresh from game to game. I chose BO3 as I find there are fewer gimmick decks where you're either building specifically against them or...

05 Jul by Luke_

This is a storm combo, which means it relies on casting multiple spells on the same turn. To cast spells, we need mana and cards. The mana will be provided by a mix of Nyxbloom Ancient, Paradox Engine and mana rocks, such as Mox Amber, Cultivator's Caravan and The Great Henge, which will untap ev...

This is the budget version of my other Tergrid deck.  I basically took out almost everything that cost $12 or more, unless it's too good to leave out and under $20.  The Maybeboard has everything I took off of the other decklist, plus other options to help get your initial deck...
