Teferi Control
Standard BO1

26 Jan by LostInThought

Introduction This is my take on CGB's Trawler Control.  I kept finding myself running out of cards with the original version so I made a few changes to better fit my play style.   Omen vs. Tome In CGB's original version, Dream Trawler is the only card that offers card advantage. ...

Kaldheim Grixis Discard
Standard BO1

22 Jan by das@das

    This is a very speculative deck considering Kaldheim isn't yet, but when went to sleep last I couldn't stop thinking about all the fun and absurd things you could once Kaldheim hits standard. This is one the decks I was thinking of. Gixis Discard. One of my favorite archetypes ever. No...

MYTHIC 95++ The Long Bright Dark-Z FINAL
Standard BO1

21 Jan by Mulconaire

This deck is the definition of masochism in the current standard format. It is the Dark Souls of Magic Decks in current standard. The idea of the deck is to suffer, then suffer, then suffer some more, then breathe that ever-so-exquisite sigh of relief when you reach the light at the end of the tunne...

Deck Update 1/25/2021 A big thanks to stormwraith, the channeler is a definite upgrade from the tome, it only let me down once, and that was because of a serious flood. A couple of deck tips to anyone that plays this. If you draw two lands and a spikefiled hazard, I would definitely hold the hazard,...

Abzan Yorion Mill
Standard BO1

19 Jan by Jiroxys

Like other Abzan Yorion decks, this deck has some late-game tricks up our sleeve. Unlike other Abzan decks, milling out the opponent is one of them. Lurrus of the Dream Den and The Binding of the Titans combo together. Whenever you pull out Binding, each player has to mill 3 cards. Used together wit...

Dimir Mill Tempo
Standard BO1

14 Jan by MrQirn

This is not your Mom's Dimir Rogue's deck. Isn't this just worse Dimir Rogues? Heck no, we're trying to accomplish some pretty different goals despite having some crossover in the cards we play. Mill & Tempo Unlike Rogues, this deck is completely committed to Mill as its win condition (although ...

Blightfang Machine Gun
Standard BO1

29 Oct by EinarOfBC

Trying to abuse Hooded Blightfang.  It's a super fun card to build around.  The goal here is obviously to get a few cheap deathtouch units out followed by as many Hooded Blightfangs as possible. Top it off with a Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, maybe a stack of Marauding Blight-Priest and sw...

Main Deck As all control decks the main objective is to shred the opponent hand and field and to do that decks packs a buttload of removal.

Standard BO1

16 Oct by s4uce

How to Pilot: The most important thing is trying to identify what your wincon is as early as possible and play the entire game structured to that, even if it feels like you're wasting resources on the way. There are some natural wincons in the deck: Ashiok, Ugin, Crawling Barrens, Lochmere Serpent, ...
