Historic All Access Deck Lists (February 2022)
Realistically speaking, if you’re looking to get this event done with quickly, taking a meta deck is a very easy way to do that. You can just consult out tier lists below and pick one of the higher options there to run the tables. If you’re instead looking for something a bit spicier, you can look below these links.
For those who want to relive the terror that was the Aetherworks Marvel days in Standard, this version of the deck is reasonably consistent and lets you spin the wheel of fortune!
One of my favorite Historic decks of all time, Temur Clover is a surprisingly powerful option that has play patterns unlike any other deck in Historic.
Although it is becoming more popular, Enchantress can be really tough on the wildcards as they’re all very insular. Nevertheless, this is the only Prison deck on Arena so if that’s your style, try it out!
Another cool combo deck for you to try! Neostorm has never been a popular option, but killing people on turn 3 is just a type of fun that’s hard to find elsewhere.
Goblins are a bit expensive and don’t overlap with other options, so if you ever wanted to try what was one of the best Historic decks from the beginning of the format, it’s still quite good now!
Even more combo decks! Dragonstorm is a deck I’ve personally always wanted to try as it looks really cool and is one of the most consistent combo decks in the format!
My personal Historic Bo1 weapon of choice as of late! Locust God Combo is excellent against the fair decks of the format and produces a “one” card game winning combo!
For the final combo (and Temur) deck of the list, Paradox Engine is one of the coolest decks I’ve ever played on Arena and if you like storm style decks, this is right up your alley.
