R/W Cage
Historic BO1

18 Oct by baronywaifu

WIP section, I'm just putting some notes here. W/R Prison. A neat little prison deck I made. Removal and board wipes for the early game, win conditions of Outlaws' Merriment and big Chandra supported by medium Chandra for card advantage and Felidar Retreat. Karn toolbox with 15 different artifacts t...

Rakdos Priest
Historic BO1

15 Oct by Typhon

I built this deck right before the Rakdos Pyromancer lists started to emerge, and tuned it ever since. This is a deck that attacks from different fronts. Cat-Oven, Scourge of the Skyclaves, Priest of the Forgotten Gods are all different ways of dealing damage. Archfiends Vessel is also very good in ...

[Historic] Orzhov Knights
Historic BO1

05 Oct by sinpyro

This deck is a work in progress. Who really wants to play the Orzhov decks that all the cool kids are playing? Vampires? Pshhh. Lifegain? BORING! I wanted to go back to an old favorite of mine: BW Knights. Unfortunately, this deck was really hard to put together as there are a lot of really good Kni...

SNAPDAX: Long Live The King (Mardu)
Historic BO1

05 Oct by evmcg99

Snapdax: Long Live The King Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt Embercleave The Deck This is a fairly greedy midrange creature-based deck that seeks to make high-impact plays using keyworded creatures to beat down the opponent and force one-sided combat steps. That being said, it's ...

NeoStorm Talisman
Historic BO1

03 Oct by tmGrunty

Why this version? I used my own version of the Temur NeoStorm deck to succesfully climb the Historic Bo1 Ranks from Platinum to Mythic less than 100 games total with a phenomenal 71% winrate during the October 2020 season.I decided to splash black for Wishclaw Talisman to reliably fetch the com...

[Historic] The Eighth Plague
Historic BO1

29 Aug by sinpyro

Thanks to eldrazi_dragon on ThyrixSyx's Discord server for the Sage of the Falls/Locust God combo idea. This is an update to my recent Izzet deck. There are only a couple of card changes, but the meme flavor changed significantly. Now we can go full throttle into The Locust God creating a plagu...

[Historic] Izzet Draw Yo Deck
Historic BO1

25 Aug by sinpyro

Hey everyone. Been awhile I know. I've been really busy and I apologize. Today I'm bringing a real jank brew that revolves around the idea of drawing an insane amount of cards to find your win conditions relatively easily. This deck was inspired by jankyardmtg's Locust Draw 2 deck. I chang...

Azorius Approach - Mythic, 61% Winrate, 80% vs aggro Hello Magic friends! I hit Mythic for the first time last night using an Azorius “Approach of the Second Sun” deck. I’ve played Magic off and on (mostly off) since 1995, but never competitively. I would appreciate any feedback! Proof: Mythic!Deck ...

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...

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 ...

Dragons! Dragons! Dragons!
Historic BO1

11 Aug by Thijs

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...

Tide Pod Historic

Combo You probably know the combo, using Prime Speaker Vannifar to climb up the CMC ladder to get Nightmare Shepherd then untapping Vanny to combo drain with Gray Merchant of Asphodel. With the amount of recursion in the deck (Fauna Shaman, Neoform, Spark Double, Find), we can regularly win on turn ...

Abyssal Tutelage (TurboMill)
Historic BO1

30 Jul by EvilUnicornNymph

Abyssal Tutelage (Turbo Mill) Basically it's Peer into the Abyss-Teferi's Tutelage combo, BUT with a lot more efficiency built in. The name was a homage to Demonic Tutor , FYI.1) Turn 1 : Overwhelmed Apprentice, or start cycling to find pieces. <-- bit improvement instead of drop land-go for most...

Lullaby
Historic BO1

30 Jul by EvilUnicornNymph

Lullaby Lullaby is actually a Song of Creation / Teferi's Tutelage combo deck. It plays pretty much as a ramp-ramp-ramp-tutelage and combo Song of Creation when you're ready to go off. Notes on this deck: 1) Most people don't see what the deck is doing until the combo hits. Maybe 1 turn warning...

Rise of the Realms
Historic BO1

29 Jul by SionConnery

So, I've been trying to brew a historic reanimator that is just fun to play. When I saw Dennis Chan's PT sultai zombies I thought it might not be a bad way to try. It's a standard reanimator deck, just mill/discard the big creatures and hope you aren't against anything that interacts with the gravey...

Affinity Artifact Control

22 Jul by Antcollector

Very cool BO1 Deck for Arena Historic. It really is a blast to play.The main goal is to ramp into high end planeswalkers as effectively as possible. Best that can happen is Tezzeret turn 4 and then clean up the board with ugin on 5 or play the Karns and run away with the game. The game often ends wi...

My contribution is this blend of Blue T...
