Big Codie Vibes
Historic BO1

17 Oct by Zapp

This is a really long and convoluted infinite combo that wins you the game on the spot. Part 1: Get infinite mana, and Famished Foragers' loot ability. First, you want to have a Sunscorched Desert in your hand or be really confident that you can deal damage to your opponent (attacking with something...

Storm Tibal
Historic BO1

13 Oct by Tr4L

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 killed by the rem...

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 deck. ...

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 close ...

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 to put anyt...

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.Typically you go into Ugins, Ul...

Blinking Buddies

03 Sep by JackBort

Hey guys, it's me JackBort and we are back for another jank combo deck. Last time we talked about hordes of scarabs, obelisk spiders and evil physicians, so let's try something lighter this time with a blink deck! For this reason we are using the new J:HH cards Soulherder, Man-o'-War and Teyo, Aegis...

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 from pers...

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 Draw and can be ...

Historic: Abzan Hapatra x Yawgmoth Combo
Historic BO1

30 Aug by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

Edit: Just finished this deck a week ago, and it works actually pretty nicely. Also did a few changes to make mana base and draw more reliable. Edit: I just saw that someone else made a deck around the same combo as I a day before but in Golgari only. Why not show JackBort some love and ch...

29 Aug by JackBort

It seems like people actually liked the Calix Brawl deck enough to try it so I wanted to give you guys something else in the meantime I'm testing other Brawl decks to share with y'all. This is a very sweet combo I discovered using some old and in my opinion underrated cards from the Amonkhet block. ...

Chandra's Heartburn

17 Aug by Zapp

First things first, Aetherhub says this deck is illegal, but starting August 26 it will be legal, as Wizards releases Jumpstart: Historic Horizons on Arena.   Anyways, what could be more fun than turning something that isn't a creature into a creature just so that The Ozolith works with it? ......

Simic: Orvar Hotel California Good evening folks, Shdorsh here from Failure Guaranteed. Today, I thought: What could I do to cement myself inside the Magic: The Gathering history.

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...

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 ...
