Infinite Mana / Draw / Damage
Historic BO1

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 ...

Azorius Warriors aka Hammertime
Historic BO1

17 Apr by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

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...

Historic BO1

16 Apr by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

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. So in order to deny the following accusations: All of Shdorsh's decks are ultra-cheap Shdorsh hates big creatures with a passion What flavor of dea...

09 Apr by MoenPDC

This is a fun deck that plays very well against mono red burn, goblins, white wheenie/life gain or anything that trys to flood you with monsters. Essentially hold them off with your smaller creatures/Oath then clear the board and drop a teferi or some fat angels. Nothing feels better then clearing E...

Army of Justice
Historic BO1

18 Mar by PopcornBunni

Let's break the game client with Angels! The game plan is simple, get out lots of copies of Anointed Procession and lots more with Mythos of Illuna which exponentially copy each other, have a Divine Visitation out, and then use any of our token makers to make 2^12 angels. So how do we get there? We ...

Hey folks, it's me, Shdorsh and I am back... with a new deck! Today I thought: Let's continue with our delving into the ways of deathtouch abuse... then I ended up making a deck that does anything with counters.

The Bad Touch
Historic BO1

18 Feb by FailureGuaranteedShdorsh

Good evening folks, Shdorsh here again with a cheap-ish deck for you to enjoy! Not having a lot of cards and want to play a decent deck so you can acquire cards and finish your dailies faster? Good! According to me (not a pro), this deck is insane, given the right circumstances! Only 32 commons, 15 ...

Let the Mirror Mage show you the power of creature duplication! This deck centers around a potent 3-card combo: Cathars' Crusade, Mystic Reflection, and creatures that generate multiple tokens when they enter the battlefield. AbsurdHeroine used this idea to great effect with a white devotion Reveren...

Just starting to tune this list for Bo1. I haven't played with the old Karn in a while and Chandra/Anointed Procession has been fun recently so why not! Our defensive tools are Deafning Clarion and Doomskar, which can come up in numbers if needed. Filtering is in the form of Pirate's Pillage and Thr...

If you can't get Nexus of Fate in the store, homegrown is fine -- now with birbs! This deck aims to play Double Vision, duplicate it with Mythos of Illuna, use those and Primal Amulet to copy Alrund's Epiphany for bird tokens and extra turns, and target Epiphany with Unsubstantiate/Narset's Reversal...

Okay last edit to the list. We are currently 31-12 for the ladder, with a very fun match against a gruul player in the top 300 earlier.

Good evening, folks, Shdorsh here. Tonight, I show something that's been a work in progress for a long time, not necessarily good though: A combo deck that was in the making, then changed due to Kaldheim coming out, then done but sucked and had at least 3 do-overs just to be kinda okay-ish. I h...
