"Boomer Jund? HA! Back in my day, we didn't have Jund Midrange piles. We had 'The Deck' that ran all the colors and controlled the whole table. 'The Deck' is the true Boomer deck. It's been around before Jund was even born! We didn't have any of these new-fangled borders. Equipment? What is this, Yu-Gi-Oh? I'm gonna keep playing 'The Deck' for as long as I live! Remember when Black Lotus was $20? Pepperidge Farm remembers."

All jokes aside, here we have a deck that was inspired from 2 things: hearing people refer to Jund as a "Boomer" deck & seeing some lists for EDH on Reddit where these players only build decks using old bordered cards. I took these ideas and ran with it! Remembering the first true powerhouse of a deck, "The Deck", which to me is the true Boomer Deck, I decided to build an EDH deck based on these ideas. All cards printed before 8th Edition & Mirrodin were free game for this deck, so here it is: Ok, Boomer - "The Deck"!

Good question! I pondered between Karona and Cromat. Cromat would give me slight controlling board presence, but it's pretty underwhelming. I ultimately decided on Karona to give myself another wincon for lategame if my other plans fail. She should only be cast if we can swing for game with her.

"The Deck" was known in '93 & '94 as an oppressive control deck, so that is exactly what this is! Control the game with Counterspells and removal until you are able to Combo off in some way.

  • High Tide + Palinchron is an infinite mana & cast combo as long as all of our lands on board are Islands. We can use this for cards like Brain Freeze or Fireball to kill the entire table.

  • Mirari's Wake + Palinchron is another infinite mana and cast combo.

  • Karona, False God coupled with Bearscape can be great lategame to help close out the game. The best time to make bears would be on the turn of the opponent directly before us so they'll be able to attack the next turn. This is our backup combo to hopefully win on the spot.

That's "The Deck" in EDH! If you enjoy this true boomer brew, make sure to give it an upvote! Thanks and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
