Naya Field Approach
Historic BO1

17 Aug by TheGrandKorso

The idea of this deck originally came from me trying to consistently ramping into Second Sun turn 7 and use cards like Elvish Rejuvenator and Escape to the Wild to draw it the next turn. However, because I was playing ramp it only made sense to play Field of the Dead, and I ended up cutting the "4 o...

Simic UROlogy (U/G Ramp)
Traditional Standard

17 Aug by Risendragon

Good morning Magic Mayhem Makers! Risendragon here with a rather sweet Simic ramp deck that can pump out big guns in short fashion. I wish I had found out about the interactions between many of these cards months before many of them rotate out (in one month!), but if this deck can help you get somew...

Deathtouch Tramplers!
Traditional Standard

17 Aug by alexthearchmage

This deck has been my favorite of the past week! This deck uses the deathtouch and trample in concert to really push damage through, while usually gaining 20+ life throughout the game! Lastly, this deck features a bunch of accidental planeswalker hate through Vraska, Swarm's Eminence, Hooded Blightf...

Traditional Historic

15 Aug by ILike2Lose

The Introduction So... we have Amonkhet Remastered now. That means we have Rhonas the Indomitable and Collected Company. Yeah... you can probably guess what deck I was going to make. Collected Company is just straight gas, and the addition of Rhonas makes green-based stompy decks a thousand times be...

Bant Trinity
Standard BO1

14 Aug by kronozord

Main Deck This is an updated version of my recurrent Bant ramp deck that I decided to revamp after the 2021 summer bans. Ideally we will play Arboreal Grazer on turn 1 and Cultivate or Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath on turn 2. If we fail to ramp Fblthp, the Lost will help us chump block and draw us ca...

Good morning Magic Mousers! Risendragon here with another cool deck tech. In the past month or so, Izzet Flyers and Azorius Flyers have both come to the forefront as viable decks and why not? Both have incredible synergies within them and they can pump out flying creatures quickly and furiously. I a...

Ral's OTK Finale
Standard BO1

12 Aug by nomadicinfluence

The golden rule to live by in the BO1 format is that if you don’t know why your opponent cast a seemingly innocuous spell, kill it with fire. Ral, Storm Conduit is one of my all-time favorite planeswalkers because he epitomizes all the reasons to live by that rule while also inducing compelling temp...

Played in a tournament with the variant Naya version with Growth and Domri's Ambush two weeks ago; not sure if was miscounting or just my not paying attention but had mana issues all day.  Found out afterwards I misplaced 3 lands so instead of running 21 my deck had 18- after going 2-2 I abando...

12 Aug by Risendragon

Good day, my Magic Militia! What I have for you today is a spicy Boros weenie build revolving around our favorite joiner of forces, Winota, Joiner of Forces. Now I know why this card is banned and busted in Historic. This deck screams! Literally, this deck has a turn four win if you have her in your...

Anointed Procession + Mythos of Illuna
Historic BO1

11 Aug by Phonetiks

Hi there!! This is a deck built for historic with the new set of Amonkhet Remastered. It's based on one of the first cards I fell in love with when I discovered MTGA back in the closed beta. It's the source of many shenanigans and I've been just waiting to get my hands on it once again. So with the ...

This is at the time of posting my favourite deck to play. My usual play is (hopefully a turn one Arboreal Grazer) into Dragon's Hoard or Dragonspeaker Shaman into Rapacious Dragon into anything.For some reason opponents rarely remove Dragonspeaker Shaman. If you have both Dragonspeaker Shaman a...

Mono Black Control

11 Aug by SoliloquyNow

So, I've been seeing a LOT of people posting MTG_Joe's MBC list today, and I took a lot of inspiration from it as well, so I thought I'd throw my list up too.  I've always loved playing heavy control, and mono-black, while not super strong right now has a lot of tools to really make things work...

Mono-Black-Vittles (Gladiator)

09 Aug by Seiburi

So this deck was made for the Super-Singleton Bo1 format, for use in gladiator, just switch out the Field of Ruin for a basic swamp. I made this deck because I couldn't decide if I wanted to build a Mono Black Control deck or an Aggro deck, so I split the difference and built a deck that has ev...

Nothing special to say about this deck other than RED DECK WINS, it is tried and tested, not only by the Meta environment and by many professionals but also by myself, let me explain why that last part is relevent. I am a stickler for trying, adjusting, developing and testing cards and decks to with...

This deck has gone through a great deal of evolution ever since Truefire Captain came on the scene in the fall of 2018 in Guilds of Ravnica.  After someone pointed out the interaction between the Captain and Ixalan’s Star of Extinction, I have been in love with the combo. It’s a simple combo, r...

Athreos, The Collector

07 Aug by NotAGoodPlayer

For a long time I've wanted to make [Athreos, Shroud Veiled work, but he's very expensive, and it's hard to get him on the board since his devotion is 7BW. A few days ago Hello Good Game posted something he called "Orzhov Prison Control" which featured Athreos and basically all the removal in the ga...

I tried to make an Abzan version of the lifegain deck, but couldn't quite find a good middle ground, so I broke these up into separate decks. My 3 Heads 3 Life deck is the Orzhov version of this. Okay SO, for this one, we're again finding ways to use Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose. I looked into green...

2020 has been the year of Orzhov for me. This deck is all about using very fun ability of Kaya, Orzhov Usurper one last time before she rotates next month. Let's take at our namesake card here. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper Kaya is here to collect her debts (your opponent's exile zone) - so let's get exilin'...
