Deck Tech Arena Standard
Winota, Leader of the Pack (2021)
Standard BO1

13 Sep by BillyRed

I want to lead off by saying I've submitted a Winota/Dogs deck before. It was well recieved and the MTGA assistant gave it a 62% win rate (which is darn good), and it was absolute rubbish compared to the deck I present to you now, so I straight up deleted it altogether. Forget about "pawblade", and ...

[ZNR] UW D&D
Traditional Standard

12 Sep by Jino

A deck centered around the new party mechanic and trying to push it as far as it goes. Despite the lack of pathway land in this set (which will hurt the manabase for the time being), UW was chosen for base because imo all the good payoffs and supporting cards are centered in this color combination. ...

Loch, Stock and Loaded - Dimir Rogues
Standard BO1

11 Sep by SoliloquyNow

This is my theorycraft for Dimir Rogues come rotation time.  I attempted to put a significant amount of Rise of Zendikar cards into the deck to make the most of the upcoming new meta (and also I really like them so...).  Anyway, onto the cards!  Same format as usual.   Creatures ...

Speaker of Demons (rotation proof)
Standard BO1

11 Sep by BillyRed

I'm very excited about this deck. It's VERY fast, resilient, and otherwise tough to deal with because of the recurability of virtually everything in the deck. This deck is built extremely low to the ground to accommodate Lurrus, but has the gas to smoke down midrange decks as well. Simply put, this ...

The Stitcher's Nightmare (2021)
Standard BO1

11 Sep by BillyRed

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. After pulling the trees off of my home, getting power restored, battling the 100 degree heat inside my house, getting the air conditioner fixed, and finally getting my internet restored, here I am, the same day my internet is back up and running bri...

https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Timing_and_priority 117.2a Triggered abilities can trigger at any time, including while a spell is being cast, an ability is being activated, or a spell or ability is resolving. (See rule 603, “Handling Triggered Abilities.”) However, nothing actually happens at the ti...

Chandrafice
Traditional Standard

09 Sep by limekiller70

This deck has been crazy fun so far, and got me all the way through gold without dropping a match. It's basically an aggro sacrifice list, like it says on the tin. The true key to the deck is Chandra, easily. Generating 2 tokens every turn, which literally everything else in the deck can use, is pre...

Esper Humans
Traditional Historic

07 Sep by Falmotis

Humans, everyone’s favourite modern tribe now in Historic. The plan is simple, through a combination of disruption and low cost threats we are looking to grind out a tempo win, slow down our opponent until we have a critical mass of tribe members to go face. So onto the tribe members. For disruption...

Mardu Feather's Last Flight
Traditional Standard

Pain n Gain
Modern

05 Sep by Eisenbeiss

Hey there, in this deck, I want to try to make the best value of each creature dies, sacrificed, or something evil. I add some pressure creatures and some, for me, funny things. Main deck: First of all, I love this one mana vessel. Lifelink and his second ability bring the enemy in trouble early. ju...

Yorion MWC - Rotation Proof
Standard BO1

05 Sep by SoliloquyNow

Creatures Giant Killer - Really good at dealing with large threats, and a decent early blocker.  He can also shut down the opponents largest creature threat if he can stick around late game. Seasoned Hallowblade - While I don't necessarily like tossing cards to his ability, if he resolves again...

Mono White Control
Standard BO1

04 Sep by SoliloquyNow

My newest experiment for Standard 2021.  I thought that mono white may actually have enough pieces to be able to hold out against the current aggro heavy look of the post rotation world (I know that Ugin kills us dead, but a lot of adventure lists run him out of the board to be hit by wishes, s...

Mono White Angels because Kaalia, Zenith Seeker is for scrubs :) (what green I dont see any green) The plan is super simple, jam everyones favourite flying ladies and beatdown in the air. The Bishop of Wings and the Soul Warden act as early game plays and the nut draw of warden into bishop into Resp...

Sultai adventure
Standard BO1

02 Sep by Jay32

I built this Sultai adventures deck to go head to head with some of the best decks in the standard 2021.  It’s a control deck that relies heavily on necromentia To remove key components  of your opponent’s decks and the card advantage provided by adventure creatures. With a half  dece...

Giants, Dragons, and Taxes (2021)
Standard BO1

01 Sep by BillyRed

I've been trying to think of how to build a deck around tectonic giant as I feel it's a criminally underused card, and I believe I've unlocked the card. Better yet, I believe I have unlocked it in a rotation proof shell. Enter Giants, Dragons, and Taxes. We will, however, not be taxing our opponent ...

Azorius Coffee Jar
Standard BO1

31 Aug by EvilUnicornNymph

Azorius Coffee Jar This is a bad pun off White and Containment Priest (container?.. get it?). This is the UW version of it, which gives it a bit more resilience with counters. The deck effectively abuses the fact that things that get cheated into play just gets exiled. In short, this is an anti-meta...

[M21] Big Gruul Transmogrify (Tier 1-2)
Standard BO1

31 Aug by mmcreativo

DECK GUIDEWhat the hell is this deck all about? The idea is to play very, very big creatures without paying their real mana cost. All those creatures are going to have trample and haste, wich means you have many options to win the game in one single turn. Your opponent won't see it coming, specially...

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted content, I'm from the United States gulf coast and I'm essentially homeless right now due to the hurricanes. Nevertheless, I refuse to allow outside influences to keep me from bringing you lovely ladies and gentlemen fun and fresh content. So without fur...
