This deck is a love letter to when I first started playing Magic...

I start playing post-ABU and 4 horsemen. I played initially from Fallen Empires / Revised through the Ice Age block before taking a break and getting back into it later in life.

As a result, the sets this deck draws cards from are:

  • Revised Edition
  • 4th Edition
  • Chronicles
  • Fallen Empires
  • Ice Age
  • Homelands
  • Alliances

The intent with this deck is surprise your opponents with cards they may be unfamiliar with and steal/copy their best cards. I wanted to try to make this deck competitive against decks in the 7-8 power level range.

In addition, this deck is a vehicle for showcasing some of the most iconic cards from this era that no longer see the love they once did (Royal Assassin, Serra Angel, Sengir Vampire, Icy Manipulator, etc...).

If your play group allows any card from Magic's history like mine does, I replace Jester's Cap with Balance.

If I have the opportunity in the future to obtain Tundra, Underground Sea and Scrubland for this deck they would obviously be included but the price has become so inflated that they are left out due to price considerations.
