Argh! Thar be Pirates!

The M20 meta has been dominated by non-interactive lists such as Scapeshift and Nexus.  Other popular decks are Green/x midrange decks looking to drop large creatures and Planeswalkers.  Aggro isn’t completely dead, but mono white has fallen in favor of Vampires, which is a solid list with some powerful cards, but also utilizes some weaker cards for synergies (territory that aggro rarely treads).  Mono red isn’t a terrible choice but isn’t the menace it once was.  With all of this

6-2 at MCQW with Bant Scapeshift!

This past weekend, MTG: Arena held a Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend (further referred as MCQW) which was comprised of all players who finished top 1,000 during the War of the Spark season (past 3 months) in either Constructed or Limited. I was able to play in this event after qualifying in June through Constructed playing mostly Bant Ramp, but today I’d like to talk about the deck I went 6-2 with this weekend, almost making day 2: Bant Scapeshift.

#4 Mythic with Quasi Reef

thank u, nex Hello! I’m Ben Williams aka Prosody and I streamed this deck to #4 Mythic last night in the best of 3 ladder! First, gaze your eyes upon this: Link for easy import: https://aetherhub.com/Deck/Public/146462 What is this deck doing?

STANDARD MECHA’THUN PALLY: NOW WITHOUT RNG!

Every class has been able to pull off a Mecha’thun OTK consistently in Standard after rotation, except for Paladin. There have only been some RNG-based ways with a lucky Prismatic Lens, or even Kangor’s Endless Army after killing off two Missile Launchers and Mecha’thun with Equality if you happen to have the Coin. I racked my brain for a way to combo with less randomness to no avail, but then a viewer suggested using Barista with Brewmaster and Galvanizers to

Esper Midrange Deck Analysis

With the addition of War of the Spark, every previous deck has gained some nice new tools. Now that the WAR has been out for quite some time now, we are seeing the dust settle with everyone exploring new decks. One deck that has been placing amazing results since the first day of WAR was Esper Midrange. There are many different iterations of Esper Midrange that have made some amazing finishes and each iteration is indicative of the current meta.

Mono White Aggro Deck Guide

With the addition of Ravnica Allegiance to standard, we saw an influx of new and innovative decks. The magic community started to experiment with different color combinations that added new flairs to decks. Azorius aggro was one of those decks that took off from the very beginning. It splashed blue to have access to new cards such as Deputy of Detention and Dovin, Grand Arbiter. Eventually, the hype around Azorius aggro died down and people started to revert back to
