Jeskai Adventure Control
Historic BO1

20 Jan by SionConnery

I've missed playing with Adventure and the obnoxious Lucky Clover in standard and with how historic has been looking I didn't think the Temur version would be fast enough to deal with the hard aggro of Muxus and Mono Red in general. I've played a lot of Genesis Ultimatum since the Ikoria came out, s...

If you've been wanting to get into historic but are scared because of the steep cost of entry and/or have been enjoying rogues in standard but are tired of the meta revolving around ways to stop your game plan this deck may be for you. Or you might just want to play a powerful, interactive deck, thi...

Historic BO1

13 Jan by ChrizzlyBear

If you get bored of the meta, because it's late in the cycle and a new set release is still a few weeks down the line, I often find myself digging the budget decks around the web to build and play in "artisan historic" for fun, or just with a friend on a rainy evening and spend some quality time. Th...

ARTISAN(Historic)_BOROS Legion
Historic BO1

08 Jan by ChrizzlyBear

INTRO I built the first version of this deck with Pioneer in mind, due to the format being new. In times like we are having now, I keep falling back to MTG:Arena and so I built the deck with what we got in Historic. I'm kind of proud of this deck, because even though we are playing with Commons/Unco...

FUN FOR DAYS || Historic Emry Combo
Historic BO1

05 Jan by Antcollector

Hi! So this is what the first week of 2021-lockdown in Germany produced for me: It's an updated list for a deck that was recently played on a Zendikar Tournament by a pro.   Originally the deck used to be Sultai. With Jace being the main wincon of the deck it was pretty solid. It. didn't do exc...

05 Jan by Enoch

  Hey, kids! Do you like Blue Control Jank with a strong Mel Vorthos feel? Well look no further, this deck is for you!   Ice Mages (or Blue Bounce) focuses on sending your opponents' cards back to their hand, and denying them Creatures and Attacks. You will have a ton of fun! (And really ...

The Reef that Milled
Historic BO1

02 Jan by SionConnery

This isn't a new deck, I've seen a few iterations of the deck on the queue. It isn't rank tested, but judging by what ranked has been like the last few months, it wouldn't hold up too well just because it is so slow. I've put a little twist on what I expected the traditional deck to be like. It stil...

Historic BO1

31 Dec by Vahnyu

Simple and clean deck with a clear goal. Clear the way of threats, slam down flyers, smash face, win.16 lands to avoid land drown, 4 double faced spell cards that can double as lands to avoid land screw.   5 and 6 lands are welcome, but honestly, this deck survives on 2 lands, and thrives on 3-...

18 Dec by GrilledCheese

Note: Some of the description is outdated.   The deck mainly revolves around those four cards: Naban, Dean of Iteration Watcher of the Spheres Fae of Wishes Terror of the Peaks is to . Sometimes that objective will be halted by the opponent's flying blockers or control. In the latter case your ...

11 Dec by SoliloquyNow

So, after a long hiatus and a lot of netdecking, I decided to put together another list for Historic.  It's still VERY much a work in progress and will take some serious testing to work out all of the kinks, but I wanted to post it here for the initial playtesting period in case anyone wanted t...

Historic 4c Incarnation
Historic BO1

10 Dec by Rinwada

This is the Enigmatic Incarnation nonsense you're here for- play etb enchantments for value, then sack them for a toolbox of even more value. All your creatures revolve around answering anything your opponent plays in the most elegant fashion possible, and because Enigmatic Incarnation pulls them fr...

[HIS] [Mythic] Ashiok Exile
Historic BO1

09 Dec by mmcreativo

INTRODUCTIONI think this deck deserves a guide since it just led me straight to mythic rank in HIS-BO1, even though I'm the kind of player that concedes at first sight when facing the same old decks over and over. I think it has a lot to do about matchmaking. Few times in life, you build a deck that...

Deathbellow Minotaurs
Historic BO1

08 Dec by SilentWitness

This is a 2 to 3 card combo deck. The concept of this deck is simple: cast [Deathbellow War Cry] to fetch a bunch of minotaurs and smash your opponent's face in with them. Ideally, you can combo as soon as turn 4, thanks to the ramp of [Mind Stone] and [Irencrag Feat], and if you’ve got a [Crashing ...

03 Dec by Zdav

So this deck has been surpisingly effective in unranked play. Still not competitve by any stretch of the imagination, but it's fun and has some fun recurring combos which can win games. There's lots of card advantage in this deck provided you follow the appropriate sequencing, and the ability to rec...

(Updated for Historic)   This deck revolves mainly around two cards: Naban, Dean of Iteration ; Dreadhorde Invasion.      - The main objective is to stall the opponent until you can make a decisive blow with your army and/or with your flyers. A well placed Revenge preceding ...

Cards to Mull for: High priority: [Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy] [Mox Amber] Not as high priority: [Emry, Lurker of the Loch]   A note about the land count: This deck has to cram a ton of stuff in, and even then some potential inclusions have been left out. There's only 20 lands. Once ...

Billy playing historic? You bet. Allow me to introduce you to the brew that got me to top 800 mythic; The Party Crasher. *This deck is built to play, and win, exceptionally fast.
