On the Edge Decklists (December 2021)
Check out all 12 of our On the Edge decks, find what you like, and grab those wins you need! You can find the complete list at the end.
If you’re trying to clear this event without clearing your wildcards, you can use my favorite Artisan deck, Monoblack Sacrifice. It has plenty of cheap plays, card draw, and interaction to give you a chance against any list!
Monowhite is always going to be a great option for these events, but for this one in particular, we lose very little for the normal Standard deck!
If you want to play something spicier, Monoblue Tempo has this cool game plan that can seriously mess up any deck in the event.
Generally I like playing Monoblack Midrange, but Zombies is looking too good to ignore with all the new payoffs from Crimson Vow.
Generally Monored gets outpaced by its White and Green counterparts, but this iteration of it is looking very powerful so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s one of the best decks of the event.
Although Monogreen loses a good amount of goodies, it still has a really powerful curve and just shows how many good green cards there are in Standard right now!
Crimson Vow is all about Vampires so we had to bring them here! With all the payoffs being in the most recent sets, Vampires should be a great choice for this event.
If you’re looking for an atypical Control deck, Orzhov has plenty of interaction and grindy win conditions between the planeswalkers and Faithbound Judge.
Likely my favorite deck on the list, Golgari can let you play as a cool ramp deck or let you cheat in huge threats way ahead of curve!
Selesnya Lifegain has all it’s support pieces in the most recent sets so you get to play this cool synergistic deck here easily!
Although the curve is a bit concentrated for my liking, you get to play with a bunch of cool Spirit cards and tempo the opponent out!
For those who just want to roll everyone in the event, Izzet Control only loses the MDFCs so you can pretty easily just play one of the best decks in Standard.
