Efreet Bombardment - Ladder Ready.
Standard BO1

05 May by nfluxpk

Back with Another Prismari Discard style deck, this thing is ladder ready and Bo3 Playable with a plausable sideboard suggested. The main weakness this deck has is to green stompy type decks, so Burning hands can be a clutch swap. 

 

Win conditions are Efreet Flamepainter ...

Overview:

This is a modified version of Sonio's Abzan Spells deck. It is, bar-none, the best Abzan deck there is in Standard. As well as the best Abzan deck we've had in almost a decade. Sonio went 3-0 in Mythic taking him from #40 to #30. Last season I blasted from P...

Orzhov Go-Face
Standard BO1

27 Feb by Shlop

Recently Orzhov Midrange decks have risen to the top of the metagame, which has been very exiting for me since I've been brewing Orzhov since rotation, and before the banning of Alrund's Epiphany and Divide by Zero, Izzet turns and to a lesser extent other control decks singlehandedly prevented O...

01 Dec by Shlop

Fading Hope broke me. It was a blast playing Orzhov Midrange with Henrika Domnathi and Liesa, Forgotten Archangel until I was face-to-face with Izzet which spent 1 mana happily answering all my creatures until they hit their 8th land drop and won by default. My ego couldn't take it any longer so ...
