Golgari Control
Standard BO1

20 Oct by kronozord

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. Heartless Act and Bloodchief's Thirst will help you survive early on, and if you don't hit creature removal you can target the hand with Agonizing Remorse. Some...

Bo1 Dimir Control - Top150 Mythic 69% WR
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, ...

Naya Winota
Standard BO1

16 Oct by perceptious

I've been playing winota decks pretty much ever since she came out. Ever since raise the alarm and a few other pieces rotated, filling the 2/3 slot before you get to winota has been a tricky issue to solve. I found that drawing one of the good 2 drop humans really hurt the impact of that first winot...

Lullaby (Std21)
Standard BO1

14 Oct by EvilUnicornNymph

Lullaby (Combo Mill) - 2021 version Lullaby was initially created as a Historic deck when that FNM that allowed all cards (even ones you don't own) into play.  Lullaby is a combo deck built around Song of Creation and Teferi's Tutelage. It's currently in its infancy, concentrating on just going...

Skycleave BO1
Standard BO1

12 Oct by Orphantine

Sideboard notes at the bottom!  *This decklist is heavily inspired by LegenVD's original decklist, also named Skycleave, in Historic. Suggestions are welcome!*   This is a fairly effective, risk-vs-reward Symetrical Slug/Aggro deck with a sub-theme of control. The idea is to get both life ...

Archon Says No!
Standard BO1

10 Oct by Flashing_Lights

So this is my first published control deck - and it is a little different from many control decks you will have played. With this I have tried to stay away from Mill and Ramp formats as these are very well understood and also stay away from the Meta as much as I can. In fact I have tried to mak...

Robber of your Rogue
Standard BO1

25 Sep by billyredmtg

Same ol' BillyRed, slightly different handle. Don't forget to hit that follow button if you don't want to miss any of my content. First off, if you don't have a mono-red decklist and you play best of one, you may be doing it wrong. Mono-green stomp lost too much power with rotation in my opinion, Lu...

(about 21% win rate) Bad starting hands (one colour only or land flooding) - 8. Other isssues are drawing a...

Rakdos Sacrifice Zendikar Rising
Standard BO1

23 Sep by Typhon

Hello! This is the Rakdos Sacrifice list that I have been tinkering around with. The list is is still being tuned so check back for any improvements. Like the previous iteration of the deck that was in standard, the deck has the ability to grind matches out, while struggling against decks that go ov...

Fountain of Ugin
Standard BO1

21 Sep by BillyRed

While I do believe I was amongst the first to post a colorless matters deck (not that it matter because we are all in this together!!!), I initially chose to use it in a mono blue shell so I could use counters to stay alive and protect Ugin once he hit the board. Grim_86 gave me several good ideas o...

Sultai Superfriends v1.5
Standard BO1

21 Sep by SoliloquyNow

So, instead of constantly updating my original Superfriends list, I decided to do a complete rewrite for the updates since there have been some pretty serious changes that I've been making thus far.  If you want to look at the original list, I have it right here for you... https://aetherhub.com...

Terror of the Meta
Standard BO1

20 Sep by BillyRed

I was asked for meta answers, so... as requested, I've wasted no time (same day as requested) ruining some of the decks that are running the meta (for now). Goodbye Rogue decks, goodbye scute decks, and without further ado allow me to introduce y'all to Terror of the Meta. Our only turn one play is ...

Colorless Matters
Standard BO1

19 Sep by SoliloquyNow

First and foremost, full credit for the idea goes to BillyRed and this list that they posted https://aetherhub.com/Deck/Public/352117.  For a more in depth description of how things work, you should definitely check their deck out first since this is a riff on it and I'll only be discussing the...

Abyssal Tutelage (Std21)
Standard BO1

19 Sep by EvilUnicornNymph

Abyssal Tutelage (Turbo Mill) - 2021 version 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 : Ruin Crab, or start cycling to find pieces. <-- bit improvement instead of drop land-go for m...

Monument to Ugin
Standard BO1

18 Sep by BillyRed

I am very excited to bring you this deck (75% win rate thus far)! While most of the cards are quite new to standard, you will undoubtedly notice there are several returning faces. I have had very limited playtesting time with this deck, meaning it may end up needing a tweak here or there, but I expe...

Sultai Superfriends
Standard BO1

18 Sep by SoliloquyNow

Hey everyone!  With the new rotation I've mainly been playing Dimir Rogues (and my goodness, it's performing extremely well in the early meta), but I also wanted to have a bit of a project list as well, and since I usually prefer more controlly lists, I decided to throw together a Sultai Superf...

The Oozes of Oz
Standard BO1

17 Sep by BillyRed

Allow me to lead off by saying it is my main goal to consistently bring the individuals that have offered kind words, followed me, made requests of me, and otherwise shown me support the funnest and freshest content I can. That being said, I have not had the opportunity to playtest this deck as most...
