Paradox Engine Combo – Gladiator

Best-of-Three (BO3)

This is a bit more of an obtuse deck for some, as instead of trying to attack with creatures or win with planeswalker activations, we’re going to win by casting nigh infinite amounts of spells due to the power of Paradox Engine, and artifacts that add mana when they’re tapped, things like The Celestus, The Mightstone and Weakstone, and Mind Stone sort of define this category, making it so when we cast our cheap spells while we have Paradox Engine in play we can generate mana so that we can use a pay off card like Staff of Domination to see our whole deck, or gain infinite life which can be fed into and Aetherflux Reservoir.

The biggest draw of this deck is being able to create some of the most flashy games in the format with how many permanents you have in play as you win with cards other decks wouldn’t dare touch due to their not being useful outside of the specific context of Paradox. This also means that it can be hard to learn what hands to keep, since it doesn’t have threats and removal in the same way, it has accelerants, stall pieces and win conditions. Take it slowly and note where you made your mistakes as you play so that you’re able to improve and style on your opponents in the queue.
