Selesnya Nornsense
Historic BO1

24 Jul by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

Good evening folks, Shdorsh here again with a very janky deck. I don't know why, but lately I've been kinda stuck on Selesnya. On another note, I've been harvesting coins to get Anthology 5, which I have to say is pretty good value for historic janks. It comes with the Phyrexian Praetors, that are f...

[Historic] Angelic Furries
Historic BO1

20 Jul by sinpyro

Note: All previous versions of this deck have been deleted from my deck lists to avoid confusion. I had to make a bunch of changes to the mana base and made quite a few significant card swaps. Disclaimer: This is a very janky deck. I do not recommend burning wildcards on building this if you are on ...

Grixis Scarab God
Historic BO1

07 Jul by Mildeck

The Deck This has got to be my favorite historic deck I've ever made. The center of the deck is possibly my favorite card ever: The Scarab God. The Scarab God It's resistant to removal, has a big body, and the ability to ressurect creatures from the graveyard as 4/4s (called eternalizing) is incredi...

02 Jul by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

Good evening folks, Shdorsh from Failure Guaranteed in here with yet another stupid combo deck. You might have seen my "endless" runes deck, which isn't endless because you will run out of cards at one point. Or maybe the stupid idea that is Gruul Heads You're Dead, which has the strong potenti...

5 Color Endless Runes Hey guys, it's been along time. You might have asked yourselves when I post some jank again, and rejoice! The time is right.  Also, about what happened: Turned out 3 turns Azorius Hammertime wins get boring and make you want to quit the game. Anyway, today, we shall take a...

22 Jun by ADudeNamedDave

Here's my unconventional mono white control deck using board wipes, pinpoint control, and wrath proof creatures as your win con. I wanted to create some rogue tech that could handle swarm decks, Elfageddon, trawlers, Ugin, artifact ramp, and rogues that could get around the inordinate amount of remo...

Planeswalker Destroy
Historic BO1

07 Jun by DisplaceGamer

The BestThis deck does its best work versus creature mid-range decks. Mono-White Life just gets destroyed. The WorstThis deck is not the best versus aggro decks where you are "on-draw". This is because the lowest cost removal is 2 CMC. This means you end up not being able to remove fast enough and m...

"Skred" Red
Historic BO1

29 May by Threadoflength

As the name implies this deck is based on the old modern deck "Skred Red" which was a mono red midrange deck that used a snow mana base to leverage Skred as a very efficient removal spell, which, along with a plethora of main deck hate cards, would bridge the gap to being able to close out a game wi...

18 Apr by godae

CONCEPT Once you get the 3 combo pieces to stick and your opponent does not have an instant speed answer to any of the cards then you win the game 100%. Either they concede from how long you're taking or you dig until you find Terror of the Peaks (while gaining mana the entire time) and do infinite ...

Good evening folks, Shdorsh here again. Today I decided to do a guild that I usually dread to play: Azorius. The only thing about this Azorius is that it doesn't follow the typical Azorius gameplay at all. No really. No annoying control, no annoying living card-by-card, 10 minutes of 500 IQ big...

Gruul "Heads, you're dead!" Good evening folks, Shdorsh here again with an exceedingly janky deck. This time, I went extra far outside my comfort zone.
