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...

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...

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

I have updated the deck to marry up to what I have been actually playing. Main changes: Additions are: Negate to foil those pesky board wipes and also Igin Skycat Sovereign replaces Watcher of the spheres - and typing this I am not sure that was the right move. Sea Gate Restoration for a bit of card...

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...

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...

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...
