Mono Black Control/Midrange

01 Aug by PenguinHugs

This decklist is centered around building up toward an inevitable end and has multiple ways of getting there, which is something I always enjoy as it keeps things fresh from game to game. I chose BO3 as I find there are fewer gimmick decks where you're either building specifically against them or...

Therapeutic Midrange

Sarkhan's Unsealing

Once in a while I get the itch to play Sarkhan's Unsealing, drop some big creatures and smash everything with satisfying cracks. It's cathartic! I also love grinding and drawing cards. Naturally this led me to put together ...

Another set, another sacrifice deck :)

 

Kind of combo-midrange, our plan is to play a bunch of dorks and kill them to trigger lots of death effects, killing the key pieces of our opponent in the process.

As a Collected Company deck, we feature 31 maindeck creatures of c...

Haven't played Magic in about two years and sorely lacking in cards, but at least this old Kefnet control list with a few updates still seems to perform well, even in historic. I'm a little behind on the meta so I might be updating this list as I play more.

Overview:

This is a Historic mono-black midrange deck built around Phylactery Lich and Phyrexian Obliterator. I found the devotion build with Gray Merchant of Asphodel to be unreliable and slow, so I built the deck without weak devotion creatures like Tymaret, Chosen from ...

This is a Historic-ready import of the Naya Feather deck that was present in the War of the Spark and particularly M20 meta.
