Who Needs A Second Sun? When All I Need Is One!

Standard Combo Competitive Control W/U (Azorius)

flluid


Description

Idea behind this deck is to control your opponent to the late game with heavy counter spells, flash effects i.e Cast Out or board wipe with Fumigate. How we inevitably end the game is with Torrential Gearhulk smashing to the face or using Failure / Comply to bounce Approach of the Second Sun back to our hand and cast it a second time the next turn for the win. If you enjoy the deck or have any recommendations drop a +1 or comment below :)

I guess im not understanding. Are you saying that you play approach, then in response to you casting it, before you put it 7 deep into your library, you pull it back to your hand? If so thats a bad ass move. If not can you explain how it would work, because it doesnt go to your graveyard the first time you cast it.

@The.Preacher yes that is exactly what you are doing in that situation. Since sunrise is already on the stack it is considered being cast for the first time now in response i bounce it back to my hand with failure and next turn play it again from my hand to win.

I love using Blue, and I love Alternate win conditions. So I knew when saw this deck popping up places that I had to make it for myself. I'm going to start by using this deck list.

Nice work!

@Bano42 Hey thank you very much :) I am glad you and everyone else is enjoying the idea of Approach of the Second Sun as much as I am.

Having a second Approach of the Second Sun would greatly improve you chance of drawing it. I would try to have Dispel handy to prevent it being negated. I recently lost an FNM game where my opponent played 2 Approach of the Second Sun from the hand in successive turns, both times countering a Disallow.
