Control decks
GBW Aggro-Control
Mono Blue Pickles
WU Control
WUR Blink (still the best version)
Ub Teachings
URbg Teachings

Aggro decks
Red Black Goblins
Red Green Token Aggro
Black Green Aggro-Discard
Green Blue Aggro Control
White Green Aggro
White Green Red Aggro
Elven Aggro
Goyf-Grow varients ( UBg is the best )
Red Black Gobofinity ( Knucklebone+Gobo ping Enchantment. Aggro-Combo )

Combo Decks
Walk the Aeons Combo
Wild Pair Combo
UR Haze Haste Storm *

Wow, 2 out of 3 decks play green. If I could go to states I would main deck all of the green hate that I could find. Why even hate one or two cards when you can just hate the color.

*I have only heard about it in theory. Pact of the Titan, enchantment giving haste, Empty the Warrens, and Haze of Rage. I guess the Blue would be to draw into the combo. I am not sure how you get enough cards to storm for the win. I would love to see a list. I love combo decks!

I seriously think Boros deck is the sleeper of this format my friend told me when Lorywn came out and I totally ignored him but if I was going to states which is a 8-9 hour drive .. I would play Boros

I dont think there are any broken combos yet..

//NAME: Boros Deck Wins
4 Ancient Amphitheatre
2 Mountain
4 Battlefield Forge
8 Plains
4 Flagstones of Trokair
4 Rift Bolt
4 Incinerate
4 Paladin en-Vec
4 Griffin Guide
4 Calciderm
4 Knight of the Holy Nimbus
4 Knight of Meadowgrain
4 Soltari Priest
2 Ashling’s Prerogative
1 Manabarbs
3 Brion Stoutarm
SB: 4 Cryoclasm
SB: 4 Boom // Bust
SB: 4 Oblivion Ring
SB: 3 Manabarbs

the curve is amazing and Ashling's way underrated $1 dollar rare? pff I expect it to go up

Calciderm or Brion on crack?

Looks can be deceiving, but the deck is amazingly consistent and who doesn't like that?

Relevant Decks:

GBW Doran Aggro
Pickles (Mono U, Ub, or Uw)
Teachings (W/ and W/o Relic)
UB(w) Blink
RG Aggro (Tokens or Sadin Style)
Elf Aggro
Wg Aggro (Kithkin or Not)

And to a much lesser extent:
UWR Blink
WU Control
Turbo Fog
Walk Combo

The rest of that stuff is either quite unpopular or quite unplayable. My guesses for most popular decks in my state:
1. Tarmorack
2. Wg Aggro
3. Teachings
4. Pickles

My point is that you should main deck green hate. With all of the green based decks that would be a great meta choice.

Deathmark comes to mind.

I'm going to champs with Turbo-fog, expecting tons of aggro.

4 Holy Day
4 Dawn Charm
4 Chronomantic Escape
4 Pollen Lullaby
4 Rites of Flourishing
4 Howling Mine
4 Wrath of God
4 Martyr of Sands
2 Gaea's Blessing
1 Millstone
1 Beacon of Immortality

4 Arctic Flats
4 Brushland
2 Forest
14 Plains


1 Beacon of Immortality
2 Disenchant
4 Oblivion Ring
3 Imperial Mask
2 Angel's Grace
3 Dodecapod

I'm expecting lots of Tarmo-aggro and BG Rack decks for my meta, I figure Imperial Mask, tons of fog, and 3 or 4 cards per turn will help a lot. Plus, in a format with 16 fog effects and 8 turbo effects, how could I not play the sleeper hit? Wink

I like the list but I would get a bit more proactive with 1-2 more Millstone. You can cut one Gaea's Blessing for it. There is also a version that I have played vs that has Orris and one Aeon as an alt win I wonder if version with blue would be better? Cryptic Command is hard to pass up. Counter and tap or tap and bounce. It just seems right. It is a bit to late to build and test though. I miss the old WU version.

What is the game play vs control decks???
