[HIS] Red Ultimatum
Historic BO1

06 Apr by mmcreativo

INTRODUCTION

This is an original deck. I'm awared that might there be thousands of decks similar to this one, but I built it by simply searching for specific synergies in a database. Being that said, you might be wondering if this deck fits your playstyle or not. If you li...

Pencils Down v2
Historic BO1

22 Jan by RobinHood3000

The latest iteration of my ETB-stifling jank deck, now for Historic!

Hushbringer and Strict Proctor turn off/tax ETB effects, which in addition to disrupting many decktypes, allows you to disregard the drawbacks of Kroxa, Acererak, and Clackbridge Troll when they enter the battlefield. Bei...

Oglor, Devoted Assistant
Oglor is a skilled artisan who would like to make you some zombie bros. Oglor is such a good friend! --Only thing is, he needs a watermill to do his work.

Let's help Oglor by making him a watermill. We could combine mill cards like Wand of Vertebr...

Big Codie Vibes
Historic BO1

Alternate deck title: Big Codex Energy

This is a somewhat long and convoluted infinite combo that wins you the game on the spot with Darksteel Reactor. It requires very little setup/luck to get the pieces right, but the downside is that the deck is absolute crap at everything but ...

Storm Tibal
Historic BO1

This deck is really close to most common Throes of Chaos deck, with a clear different goal: kill the turn you Cascade.

 

An issue I encounter with regular Throes of Chaos deck, is that on turn 4 you got your Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, exile two creature and still being ...

3 Colour Dredge
Historic BO1

29 Sep by 5ManaAndADream

Welcome to dredgeless dredge. I have been trying variations of this since historic came out. Finally after the most recent historic anthology and historic horizons I think the deck is in a fairly good place; Dragon's Rage Channeller and Grisly salvage are some of the biggest new cards for the dec...

Fuma-red
Historic BO1

29 Sep by Threadoflength

This is an updated version of my "skred" deck 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 clo...

The Agnostic Approach
Historic BO1

15 Sep by Zapp

First off, things you should know playing this deck:

You very much want or even need the bottom of your deck to have Approach of the Second Sun and Irencrag Feat in it. This means keeping a few things in mind: 1 - You do not want your opponent to force you to shuffle. 2 - You do not want t...

Hey dear All.

You can add me ingame Cypho Dias#3205 to play vs. 100% self made, non meta Decks, THIS IS THE WAY !! 

I feel that it is very consistent to use some Elf Ramp with Leyline of Abundance, to generate a lot of mana, I played Decks like this in Mythic a lot.

Historic: persistent goblins combo v2
Historic BO1

02 Sep by slayeroffrog

Second version of persistent goblins, this one forgoes the ability to deliver a goblin beatdown and goes all in on the combo, can kill as early as turn 3

the combo revolves around infinitely sacrificing putrid goblin while a metallic mimic or grumgully is on the board as the -1/-1 counters...

Channeler Blitz
Historic BO1

31 Aug by Fredzy

Ok so I've tried a lot of ways to abuse Delirium and Madness in the same Deck, trying to emulate the kind of feel you can have in a modern type deck and so far, this is how I've managed to get There.

 

This deck has more than good crits, Fire to clean up the board, lots of card...
