Rise of the Brokers Alchemy Singleton Decklists

For these events I’m going to keep the base lists for each article and a few on top that are specifically tailored for the event to utilize the emblem as much as possible, so if you see a repeat in archetypes, this is why!

Feel free to replace any cards you don’t have with something that serves a similar function; the beauty of Singleton is that you don’t need all the powerful cards for the deck to play optimally!

You can even use ones from previous events and tweak it further to your preference and collection. You can find these Alchemy Singleton decks, and more at our deck database.

For this particular event, the Emblem is once again quite specific so you should really play an aggressive deck that can play a lot of cards with counters. To do so, you really need White.
