This is one of the coolest decks I've ever seen. Don't let the 'WUBG' name of the linked list fool you - this is Dark Knight Delver.

This deck isn't my idea, but this is a 'budget' list I almost have built. Just missing 2 Wasteland, 1 Knight of the Reliquary, and 4 Force of Will. If you have any of those for trade, please hop on over to my binder and leave an offer!

Legacy is my favorite format and one I've wanted to get into pretty much since I started playing magic. I know I need to be playing a deck with Deathrite Shaman and Stoneforge Mystic side-by-side because those are my favorite cards in the format. Also Brainstorm. However, I also need a deck without Leovold, True-name, or Jace because those are too expensive. Given those constraints, this deck is perfect for me. Efficient, powerful, and totally unexpected.

Eventually I plan on getting duals and taking it to real events (opens and GPs and such), but that's probably years out still. Duals cost a lot of money.

LOL Legacy Budget is 1k.

I love it.

Budget blue legacy is 1k. Non-blue can be less, but I'm a sucker for blue decks.

The mana here is atrocious. It'll take some toying with before it's serviceable. I'll lose to stifle decks and burn, but whatever.

And after making an Acquireboard, I'm only missing $550 of it! soft sobs

Here's to hoping for a Force of Will reprint in Iconic Masters and 20th Anniversary Masters. And Wasteland in at least one of them. But wasteland isn't so bad anymore.

I can't do Legacy personally. Not just for the price tag, but how complex things can get in just three turns.

Watched a friend combo off with storm using no lands the other day. That was interesting.

This deck looks great, reminds me of my friends not-legal-in-any-format delver. Would Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver be a good walker that fits this deck? or is it too slow?

July 20, 2017 10:43 a.m.

Ashiok would be a little slow, unfortunately. Which is sad because Ashiok is my favorite walker. If I could fit more 3-drops, the 4th knight would be the first card to add, and then Lingering Souls or Vendilion Clique.

Ah! Warms my heart to see someone excited to get into legacy & working slowly towards it. You should really hit up GPs and Opens if any come near you. You can get some pretty good deals on damaged power/Duals there from the vendors! I have a Jitte and a Daze for trade if you still need 'em. Good luck gettin the deck! Legacy is great --except for show and tell-- :)

Thanks! I actually only need 4x Force, 2x Wasteland, and 1x Knight of the Reliquary before I have this deck. I'm waiting for the nearly guaranteed Force of Will reprint in IMA or M25 before I pick them up, and after that we'll see if I can make enough money next summer to start getting duals.

I've played in a handful of proxy events at game shops and play legacy on / cockatrice every once in awhile, so I'm getting better at the format. Once I get this together I'll start doing weekly LGS events and hopefully eventually bigger events.

Do you think Preordain would be good here? I'm not sure since I really don't know how to play Legacy. I'm sorry v.v

August 3, 2017 8:57 a.m.

Preordain is a very good card, however 8 cantrips is already a lot. Any more and we get too many hands with a lot of cantrips that just don't do anything.

What're your thoughts on adding a singleton Retreat to Coralhelm? Makes your Knights get really big, really quick to close out games.

November 27, 2017 11:08 p.m.

It would enable combo finishes, but unless I'm comboing it doesn't do much in the deck. In particular because of the delver plan, and especially since it costs 3 mana to cast, I don't think it's worth playing.

I'm officially 5 cards away from the deck now. 4 forces and 1 last knight. Too bad forces are so expensive. Please 25th anniversary masters have a reprint?
