Welcome to the Deckbuilders' Challenge originally created by sdfkjgh! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a deck along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of every two weeks, a winner will be determined by forum poll, and the winner decides the challenge for the next fortnight's Contest!
Here we go, competitors: our twenty-ninth challenge!
Design four Jumpstart-like half-decks that can be mixed and matched to play sufficiently balanced games against each other.
Note: Feel free to take a look here for a short list of all the existing Jumpstart half-decks or here for their full decklists. ~Daij_Djan
Please provide a decklist using deckstats, tappedout or similar. Feel free to add some comments as they will be included in the final poll. Please provide a deck name as well as choose a card to represent your deck in the poll.
A Jumpstart half-deck is 20 cards, right? So quantity card wise, we're building 80 cards total. Seems like the real challenge will be picking 4 themes....
I decided to go with Multicolor-pair themed decks in at least some capacity, since Jumpstart was primarily Monocolor. Multicolor decks represent a strategy fitting to their colors and generally possess more manafixing than their monocolor deck counterparts to smooth things out.
A Boros control package featuring a few big rare/unusual beaters from across Magic's history and a lot of creatures and cards that can fire at instant speed, effectively making it a Boros combat/burn take on a Simic Flash Control type deck. The deck is primarily aimed towards removing creatures and hobbling combat so that its big finishers can swing without fear, though it has some niche means of combating other threats, and is somewhat unique in that its hybrid mana inclusions reward you for splashing into or .
Once upon a time, two Magic cards created an infamous combo that has yet to escape the banlist... You can recreate this combo with a variety of creatures, but make sure your precious copying creatures don't get shot down too quickly...
UG Superfriends Theme: Planeswalker Ramp, Proliferate
The gang's all here. Play a variety of heroes from across Magic's greatest history and crush your opponent with sheer value!
WB Rebels Theme: Rebel Creature Toolbox
"A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away..." Overthrow your opponent's tyrannical plots by pulling out the right piece of removal from your Rebel army.
