On the Edge – Midweek Magic Event Guide and Best Decklists

This guide will contain everything you need to know about the May 2023 Midweek Magic: On the Edge event, including rewards and our exclusive sample decklists.

Hey everyone! We’ve reached the middle of another week and that means its time for me to drop some deck lists for you to crush Midweek Magic with. There is one small hitch in the whole process though. While the schedule and Arena announcements have it listed as On the Edge, they haven’t updated the Midweek Magic page to list that even though they have had next weeks listed for a while. Someone just missed it and hasn’t fixed it since.

You might be wondering why am I telling you all this. Very simply that I can’t confirm which sets are included in this event. My guess is that it will be the last three Standard legal sets of MKM, LCI, and WOE. I kept giving them time to update, but am building these at the last minute off of guess work. I apologize in advance if they end up being wrong, but I did what I could.

Event Details

Welcome to Midweek Magic! Each week, try out a different way to play MTG Arena!

Bring a 60-card deck using only cards from Wilds of Eldraine, The Lost Caverns of Ixalan, and Murders at Karlov Manor. With only three Standard sets to work with, you’ll need cutting-edge strategies to find victory!

I’m making this part up because WotC forgot to post it. You can go to that page with the hope they have updated it. I must warn you that you will most likely be more disappointed than a Cleveland Browns fan.

Decklists

Boros Aggro

We all know that smashing the face in with a bunch of small creatures is a tried-and-true method of success in these events. I would only recommend this if you already have most of the cards though because this will put a massive hit on the old wildcard wallet.

You know what’s a lot more fun than smashing the face with random creatures? That’s right, smashing the face with freaking Dinosaurs. Welcome to Jurassic Park, I hope you survive the experience.

Dimir Control

I am a lover of good control decks in these formats because almost all of your opponents are playing creature heavy decks. Just happily blast away with tons of removal that doubles as solid threats such as Virtue of Persistence and Horned Loch-Whale. You even have repeatable threats such as Cryptic Coat and Aclazotz, Deepest Betrayal to ensure that you get the job done.

We can’t always leave the poor Golgari out of the fun. Just a pile of value cards that keep coming at the opponent.

While not quite as effective as it was last week when it was only MKM. This is still an ultra-cheap way to get through the event.
