Good evening gamers! The Mad lad is officially back! And to be completely honest it seems like while I was gone the whole standard community has given up until field of the dead is, well, dead. But fear not because I have returned from the desert ready and eager to bring some good ol' fashioned fun ...

Harmonious Hero (Azorius, Control)
@korvik93 your decklist seems like its has something going for it! Try testing different versions of it that focus on the different play styles... E.G Aggro, control, or midrange. You could also try to fit Starfield Mystic in or try to work with the doom foretold package. But I would need a lot more...

Harmonious Hero (Azorius, Control)
@Ectyvolt Don't worry about the english!! :D I put unbreakable in the sideboard for the high amount of sweepers in rotation right now, but it also functions as an option to make the deck more aggressive. Time wipe is a great card but it kills all of our guys too so it is best left in the sideboard ...

Harmonious Hero (Azorius, Control)
@ruipx Thank you kind sir, @korvik93 also think of Archon as a control card, you only play it when it gives you the advantage. In the FOTD matchup you can tell what deck you are playing against right away because of the lands (no one else really plays gates) so you will know to hold the veto for Ca...

Good afternoon gamers! Today I have something a little different to give you gals/guys. You see normally I do not like to tackle the metagame because I prefer fun over the monotonous grind of using cookie cutter net decks. For me the fun in magic comes from unlocking unique mechanics and puttin...

Good day gamers! Today I have a mono red deck for post rotation. Back in Eldritch Moon there was a fun card named Thermo-Alchemist and I always enjoyed playing around with the mad genius. Well fast forward to M20 and it basically got reprinted with Electrostatic Field, combine that with Chandra...

Beamsplitter Wizards (Izzet)

There is nothing like a good ol' fashioned wizards aggro deck and today I've got a fun one. This deck sets up a few wizards in the first couple of turns then, using combat tricks, hits really hard on turn 4 or 5 to win the game. The core card in the deck is of course Beamsplitter Mage. Getting doubl...

Pro-Life (Infinite combo)

This is a purely jank fueled deck that goes infinite in UG. Even with the jank Pro-Life can still hold up because of the strong interactions with the proliferate mechanic and creatures like Chamber Sentry, Ugin's Conjurant, and Voracious Hydra. The core mechanic that drives the deck is proliferate w...

Cavalier's Creatures is the first of two decks inspired my friend Chris, he wanted a Jund deck in standard so I went a step further and made it a creature only Jund deck that will last through rotation! The first thing you'll see in the deck is that all three cavaliers are featured. Then you might n...

First thing we should cover is that this deck is not going to win a lot.  However the stars may align and one day it may actually win a game for you, it did for me.  I found that the most effective way to use this deck is to throw Etrata, the Silencer into the grave then use Lazav, the Mul...

I have a deck that is only for true degenerates (I myself started as a modern Jeskai control player so trust me, I know). Yes it is a truly cancerous UW deck that promises to remove your opponent from the game entirely. I created it during the Teferi-pocalypse as proof that Teferi, Hero of Dominaria...

Gruul is pretty strong right now but this deck's soul is based in playing my favorite type of creatures, DINOSAURS! which is why Gruul staples like Rekindling Phoenix are excluded. That being said lets get into the juicy juicy goodness of this deck... At the core of the deck sits the new dino on the...
