I’ve been waiting for this card! There was a rumor about this guy when some Planechase leaks occurred about a week ago, but now we have confirmation. I think this card might actually be Legacy playable. It feels like a bit of a sleeper.

Banlist discussion.

“Force of Will gettin banned.”

Mad kids.

Yeah, Force of Will is the only thing keeping combo decks from rolling the format over. Without Force of Will, Legacy would devolve into Show and Tell, Painter’s Servant, Reanimator, and Natural Order. Force of WIll makes it so that these decks can be stopped without a big tempo loss that can occur by saving 2 mana open every turn to play Counterspell.

I’ve heard some people talk of Brainstorm getting banned. I don’t think it’s necessary, but it would be interesting. It’s such a good card for digging and against discard spells, that it’s pretty much an auto include into any blue deck. Its banning would also hurt Force of WIll, and make Force only put into decks that are more heavily in blue. Or players would have to play Ponder or Preordain, which would also hinder the blue decks a bit.

My mind is thoroughly blown.

I’m going to put this together on Lackey. I think there are a few cards this player is missing (Kor Haven, Words of Worship, and obviously lands), but he did pretty amazingly for a budget Legacy deck. Gotta love the guy who beats you with his turn 1 Terramorphic Expanse.

“He played duress, but I responded with orim’s chant”

That’s not how Orim’s Chant works though.

I’m pretty sure he just did it in response to Duress so that it wouldn’t get discarded. That makes sense to me, anyway.

Legacy Junk

I post a lot on here about individual cards, but I think I should start to post some decklists on here. I’ve recently started playing Legacy again, and Junk is a lot of fun. My favorite decks are the ones where I can always have creatures on the board, but still keep a few surprises in my hand. Junk plays the most efficient creatures in Legacy and the best discard spells as well.

16 Creatures
1 Birds of Paradise
4 Dark Confidant
2 Tarmogoyf
1 Gaddock Teeg
1 Qasali Pridemage
3 Stoneforge Mystic
1 Terravore
3 Knight of the Reliquary

21 Other Spells
2 Mox Diamond
1 Sensei’s Diving Top
4 Inquisition of Kozilek
3 Green Sun’s Zenith
4 Swords to Plowshares
4 Hymn to Torach
1 Umezawa’s Jitte
1 Sword of Fire and Ice
1 Batterskull

23 Lands
3 Wasteland
1 Bojuka Bog
1 Dryad Arbor
1 Maze of Ith
3 Bayou
3 Scrubland
1 Savannah
2 Marsh Flats
3 Verdant Catacombs
2 Windswept Heath
1 Forest
1 Plains
1 Swamp

15 Sideboard
3 Enlightened Tutor
2 Pithing Needle
2 Thorn of Amethyst
1 Ethersworn Canonist
1 Null Rod
1 Sylvan Library
1 Wheel of Sun and Moon
3 Pernicious Deed
1 Choke

The first thing you might notice about this deck is the Green Sun’s Zenith package. Besides Tarmogoyf and Knight of the Reliquary, who are always good, there are a few creatures that I play as a 1-of that can be found whenever they are needed. On turn 1, it can be a ramp spell to find Dryad Arbor. On turn 2, you can get Birds of Paradise for mana fixing. Afterward you can get a huge beater, a Naturalize, or a combo stopper.

The other package I run is the Stoneforge Mystic equipment package. It’s pretty Standard, featuring Jitte, Batterskull, and Sword of Fire and Ice.

The last package in the maindeck is for Knight of the Reliquary. I play 1 Bojuka Bog, 1 Maze of Ith, and 3 Wastelands so that Knight of the Reliquary can do much more than just being an efficient beater.

The sideboard is another package, which features 3 Enlightened Tutor and 12 artifacts and enchantments. That way, I only need to play 1 Choke and I’ve got 3 cards to shut down High Tide. I’ve got 2 Thorn of Amethyst, which gives 5 solid cards that can hinder Storm combos. Englightened Tutor is never a dead card either, as it can always find Sensei’s Diving Top or an equipment.

GW is my favorite color combination, so in Legacy I’ve tried out Bant and Zoo lists as well. I guess I stick with this deck because of how powerful Dark Confidant is. If he goes unanswered, I should almost always be able to pull out a win. I don’t mind being able to have cheap discard spells either.
