Deck Tech Arena Standard
Sac Weenie
Standard BO1

18 Apr by YesWhey

Uses the aristocrat combo shell of Plumb the Forbidden / Sedgemoor Witch / Bastion of Remembrance seen mostly in BG shells to date.  Funny enough, I discovered this combo and because I live under a rock, I had no idea that others were building around it like I was, although I started to suspect...

Witherbloom Lifegain - Daemogoth Vito
Standard BO1

17 Apr by deadelevators

I've been tinkering with a Standard deck that combines the new Strixhaven Witherbloom cards with a Vito Lifegain deck. The main combo synergies all revolve around Daemogoth Titan/Woe-Eater, plus the new Pests (1/1 tokens that say "When this creature dies, you gain 1 life". There are a lot of potenti...

Gigantic Ultimatum KHM Bo1
Standard BO1

29 Mar by Kamahl07

Input Appreciated! Intro This a Jankenstein's Monster I've been working on since Kaldheim dropped.  Initially it was an Izzet Midrange brew that I really enjoyed, but I wanted something a little flashier.  I cut out the grindier aspects of the original deck and added in the Beanstalk ...

The ol' Razzle Dazzle
Standard BO1

28 Mar by missaciddrops

This is a combo deck abusing the interactions between In Search of Greatness, sagas, and planeswalkers to control the field before pulling out big threats, namely Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider, and swinging for the win. This deck took me to Mythic last season, despite the sea of uninteractive and brai...

Song of Creation Mill
Standard BO1

21 Mar by Thijs

General info When playing this deck, keep in mind that MTG Arena autotapper wants foretell players to lose. It will quite reliably tap the wrong lands when paying foretell costs, which can cost you a lot of tempo.This means you'll often have to manually tap your lands, providing your opponent valuab...

Crafter of Tyrite
Standard BO1

28 Feb by Thalass

Now this deck is insane. It tends to triumph over aggro with insane life gain and undying effects. If you play the deck, I’m sure the basic technique will be obvious to you, but there’s also some hidden smoke in the decks. I will explain the obvious first. Anytime you get a flip land, at the be...

White Control
Standard BO1

27 Feb by typhoid_ratt

The deck that started as a bit, but turned out to have legs.    With the top decks in Standard right now skewing aggro, this deck includes a lot of early interaction. Glass Casket and Skyclave Apparation take care of early threats and can be blinked later with Yorion, Sky Nomad if needed. ...

[KHM] Ultimate Planeswalkers
Standard BO1

24 Feb by SilikG

This is a casual deck, with the intention to stack planeswalker emblems. The goal is to get Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider in play and survive long enough to get at least one planeswalker down.  With Vorinclex in play, the planeswalker can trigger their ultimate ability immediately on resolving, w...

Tibalt's Trickery
Standard BO1

20 Feb by KagelVlusha

Overview Tibalt's Trickery is a ridiculous card. In case this is your first time seeing it, and you're having a some trouble with the wall of text on the card itself, what it does is counter a spell, but then let its controller cast a random spell from the top of their deck for free. There's a bit m...

Kiora Wakes the Trolls
Standard BO1

19 Feb by IllugiGodi

Kaldheim brought us some land detruction with an in-build win condition: Waking the Trolls. It is a saga that destroys a land, ramps us up, and finally gives us a number of trampling troll creatures. It is a pretty fun card. So, let's try to get it to work! We have "Kiora Wakes the Trolls", a standa...

Mono-Black Snow Control
Standard BO1

14 Feb by synapse

Mono-Black Snow Control Deck Tech 1) Survive the early game by chump blocking serious threats with Serrated Scorpion – don't be too eager to trade with smaller threats. With that in mind, mitigate damage where possible because we have limited life gain and our plan is to take the game long. 2) Ideal...

Orzhov Angels - KHM BO1 [GER]
Standard BO1

14 Feb by xderdobbyx

Main Deck Das Deck besitzt einige Aggro als auch Control Elemente. Man kann sich somit der Situation ein wenig anpassen.Entweder es macht die Masse, die Kontrolle, oder aber die 27 Life Mechanik (Engel beschwören für Lau + alle Kreaturen erhalten +2/+2).Bei letzterem muss man vorsichtig sein, da der...

You Know Nothing Jorn Snow
Standard BO1

11 Feb by bananaco

Snow Sultai mid-range built around "Jorn Snow" and the effects he enables. Play a tempo game and press your advantage on the battlefield with psuedo-vigilant creatures and Standard's new "Icy Manipulator."   GENERAL GAMEPLAN: Set up an early draw base to find combo pieces via Frost Augur or Pi...

Mardu Knights what wizards wanted broken
Standard BO1

04 Feb by Haksaw

The tribe of knights got so many powerful rares and mythics that were meant to make mardu knights extremely powerful, similar to what they did with rogues in zendikar. So what I did was took those cards of mardu knights wizards wanted to be played and put them in a deck to see how it would work. Man...

Jund Terror Dwarfs
Standard BO1

04 Feb by LanternLee

Dwarves and Dragons? Pretty sure we have seen that movie before. Well we can garuntee you that this deck is probaby a lot like that movie, just less drawn out and no pesky humans slowing down the story, (Unless your opponent is playing White weenies....wait a minute....). A handful of dwarves and a ...

Deck Update 2/17/2021 This deck wins, took the Lurrus companion out and put him in the main, cut 2x bloodsky berserker. This deck is absolute gas, and will handle the sultai ramp deck easily. Deck Update 2/15/2021 Who needs to draw cards when you can just get them from your graveyard. Why max out "o...

Tergrid Doom
Standard BO1

31 Jan by JuanCruz

Still have to try it, experimental orzhov doom deck trying to get as much value as possible. The main idea is "combing" Doom Foretold with Tergrid to steal permanents from the oponent.As I said, I still have to test it properly, it should have a good match up against midrange decks, but against agro...

Sultai Snow Lands
Standard BO1

30 Jan by TChrist

Really cool interaction I found while running Narfi, Betrayer King and Nissa of Shadowed Boughs in another sultai deck, if you are running all snow lands then Narfi buffs them up to create some potent damage threats. This deck is all about using Avalanche Caller, Narfi, and Nissa to deal significat ...

Hi everyone. It's me again. I already posted an Abzan Midrange list that went 6-0. If you're interested, check it out here-> Abzan Legends 6-0. I'm no expert so feel free to recommend some improvements you'd make to the deck! My 2 cents about the deck and which cards surprised me the most (e...

29 Jan by therealtaddy93

I like Abzan so much i had to make a deck with the new Kaldheim Set. In my 6-0 run i faced aggro, midrange and control. I'm no expert so feel free to recommend some improvements you'd make to the deck! My 2 cents about the deck and which cards surprised me the most (english is not my native lan...
