Jérémy Dezani's Mono-Blue Devotion

Standard Mono-Blue

Long_Con Score: 2


Description

Here's the deck that won the Theros Pro Tour, earning Jeremy Dezani $40,000, I believe. I saw at least three of these at the last FNM, but I never faced one. I want to playtest against it, and you should too, if you play competitively at all, because this one is going to be copied until Born Of The Gods comes out!

I don't understand 4 of Thassa, God of the Sea I can understand the consistency factor... but 4 of a lengendary creature seems a bit crazy

This deck seems pretty crap,since when has blue ever been good at aggro. I would playtest it, but i canny be bothered. I'll just crush it at FNM when some unimaginative dude net decks it.

shrug the results don't lie, Schuesseled... this man clearly has had many wins against other awesome decks in order to get here. You don't win Pro Tour on a fluke, right? But yeah, Golgari Charm seems good, as well as Ratchet Bomb .

Most pro tour decks are uninmaginative, just wait till the next one when 20 "pros" all run this.

I also faced 2 of these decks last night. It seems like blue aggro is going to be a thing due to Master of Waves .

do need to say this deck was very bothersome when i played against it at one of my first attempts to build an aggro deck. as in being aggro it contained mostly red creatures(well actually all of em). if i didnt burn it was like. Omenspeaker has a big enought body to block each turn. Tidebinder Mage locked another creature and Jace, Architect of Thought could serously slow down damage output.

this is in the case i would draw slow since i could outrase it but still. i can be harsh.

vs control i realy dont see this winning. wipe it simple while this is the usual dies by X comment. Supreme Verdict can harm it greatly. and even the new wipe from red Anger of the Gods can pretty much kill all except the weird/mutavault and the prored guy who can be easly killed by any other card in such a deck.

Results are skewed, a bad deck can beat the same net deck over and over again if was built to do just that, this hoses RDW and sucks against everything else. Most people who go to pro tours have no talent, so just run the most popular net deck, which just so happens to be the worse possible deck to use against this garbage.

That is all.

Schuesseled, this deck didn't exist, so obviously the TWO finalists in the PT weren't net decking it. Are you actually saying that Pros don't have any talent or skill in Magic? How do you think they get to be pros?

@Sagi007, you should look at the videos for the Pro Tour. Jeremy actually beat Wafo-Tapa's Esper Control deck to make if into quarter finals, then beat a green red ramp deck (Makahito Mihara), to then face a mirror match against his team mate. With good side boarding, and effective use of Thassa, God of the Sea (since she is indestructible). Her Scry 1 also makes sure your getting a chance to improve every draw.

I don't know why somebody (@schuesseled) would say that winning a PT takes no talent. The cards that players like Dezani use are what get the attention, and then become the most expensive cards to own, like Nightveil Specter and Master of Waves. Standard is not really about being imaginative, it's about being consistent and successful. If you want imaginative, go for Modern, Legacy, or EDH.

Yay for turn 2 wins..

Cause non-interactive decks are "imaginative"... <.<
