Bant Actived Staxs
Traditional Historic

06 Jul by SlickSamos

If we had access to Spirit of the Labyrinth this deck would be complete... The original deck ran an Adapt package (4x Incubation Druid & 4x Growth-Chamber Guardian), alongside 3x Biomancer's Familiar to keep the value train going (I have managed to double Kinnan activations in a single turn!).&n...

Kiora's Unsealing
Traditional Historic

26 Jun by lAmebAdger

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 a fun little Jund deck that centres ...

A big red ugin/ulmog deck that I've been changing for the longest time, currently a chandra pile with small ugin to handle enchantments. You make ask why theres 4 chandra in the sideboard!..... Control players with a brain have been my hardest match ups. Memory Lapse hurts. I ended up dropping big u...

Sideboard works for me, as most of my games 2 and 3 are going quite well. Punish anyone trying clunky new ideas. Alot of my interaciton is 1 of's in the mainboard... So far I've been happy with the mix and have had a hell of a time trying to decide what to keep 2 ofs and drop the others.  ...

Abzan sacrifice STX
Traditional Historic

27 Apr by Razaele

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 costs 3 or less (and pote...

Kefnet Control
Traditional Historic

14 Apr by SoC

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. God-Eternal Kefnet Kefnet is a slightly we...

Fuel for the Fire

Grow the forest to burn your enemies. This deck uses Overgrown battlement to ramp into the big hitters of Fight with Fire and Banefire, protect your Overgrown battlement above all other creatures. The main deck has a wide variety of options in dealing with removal, life gain, death touch, enchantmen...

Mono-Black Midrange
Traditional Historic

06 Apr by Chahzel

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 Death or Yarok's Fenlurker....

Golgari aristocrats
Traditional Historic

25 Jan by Razaele

Kill fast and outvalue. While being an aristocrats (or sacrifice) deck, this list packs lot of card advantage (most of the cards either filter with scry, draw cards or reuse the graveyard) and ton of incidental damage (which is the main win condition). It is difficult to whiff with CoCo due the 31 c...

21 Jan by Falmotis

Big red control, yepp thats right red can do control too. How? Just jam all of the Chandras and run the board while shooting your opponent in their smug teferi avatar thats how. Lets start with Chandra's Regulator as its a key piece of the deck hence its a 4 of. (dont worry about drawing extras of t...

Feather
Traditional Historic

28 Dec by fossar__

This is a Historic-ready import of the Naya Feather deck that was present in the War of the Spark and particularly M20 meta. Quick disclaimer before we get too far in, this deck is far from top tier and we'll talk a bit about why soon. However, it can hold it's own and has insane burst potential whi...

Sultai Superfriends
Traditional Historic

24 Oct by SoliloquyNow

After netdecking for Historic for this past season, I finally decided to attempt to put something together on my own, pulling in from my favorite wedge Sultai.  Sultai has fantastic options for control, and some very high-end planeswalkers, which led me to attempt to build a functional superfri...

Esper Humans

07 Sep by Falmotis

Humans, everyone’s favourite modern tribe now in Historic. The plan is simple, through a combination of disruption and low cost threats we are looking to grind out a tempo win, slow down our opponent until we have a critical mass of tribe members to go face. So onto the tribe members. For disruption...

The Introduction So... we have Amonkhet Remastered now. That means we have Rhonas the Indomitable and Collected Company. Yeah... you can probably guess what deck I was going to make. Collected Company is just straight gas, and the addition of Rhonas makes green-based stompy decks a thousand times be...

This deck has gone through a great deal of evolution ever since Truefire Captain came on the scene in the fall of 2018 in Guilds of Ravnica.  After someone pointed out the interaction between the Captain and Ixalan’s Star of Extinction, I have been in love with the combo. It’s a simple combo, r...
