Neoshoalbrand

This is an all in combo deck that is capable of winning on the first turn of the game. We do this by casting the card Allosaurus Rider and then turning it into Griselbrand with either Neoform or Eldritch Evolution. Then we draw our entire deck by gaining life with Nourishing Shoal to eventually win the game with Laboratory Maniac.

Goblins

This is a midrange deck with an aggressive slant that looks to leverage tribal Goblin synergies with cards like Goblin Piledriver, Goblin Chieftain, and Goblin Ringleader to win games. While this deck can definitely end the game quickly on occasion the toolbox nature of Goblin Matron and the card advantage provided by Goblin Ringleader gives it a lot of staying power into the mid and late game.

Bant Eldrazi

This is a disruptive midrange deck. It is looking to close games out quickly by playing Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher ahead of curve with cards like Noble Hierarch and Eldrazi Temple. It also gets to play the best cantrip in Modern, Once Upon a Time, and the best removal spell in Path to Exile.

Vannifar Chord

This is a creature combo deck that generates infinite copies of Restoration Angels or Corridor Monitor via Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. We make this happen via search effects like Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution and Prime Speaker Vannifar.

Prime Speaker Vannifar is especially deadly because it can generate a combo kill from just a single one mana creature and two forests. We do this as follows:

Revolt Aggro

This is an explosive aggro deck that is looking to play as many creatures to the board as possible before surging out a copy of Reckless Bushwhacker. Thanks to cards like Burning-Tree Emissary and Hidden Herbalists we can flood the board much faster than traditional aggro decks. Not only is this good with Bushwacker, but also potent with Atarka’s Command.

Naya Titan Shift

This is a more interesting take on the fairly bland Red-Green Valakut Titan deck. Nahiri, the Harbinger allows our deck to filter through the “wrong half” as well as eventually floop a Primeval Titan into play. Nahiri can also answer problem permanents like Blood Moon with her down tick. The small white splash also allows us to have access to powerful sideboard cards.

Grixis Hollow Flayer

While at first glance this deck might look like a meme, it contains a good deal of the explosive power RB Hollow One has, while having a method of going over the top of other creature decks thanks to Soulflayer. Thanks to Gifted AetherbornFlamewake Phoenix, and of course Zetalpa, Primal Dawn we can give our Flayers a variety of powerful abilities that are difficult to deal with for various opponents.

UR Tempo

This is an aggro-control, or “tempo”, deck. It looks to set its opponent behind with cards like Remand while applying pressure with evasive threats like Delver of Secrets and Nimble Obstructionist. Cards like Lightning Bolt and Wizard’s Lightning allow us to both control the board or close out games when our opponent’s health total gets low. You can read a bit about this history of this deck on CSI here as well as check out a primer after my run at SCG Indy here.
