The Deck Box

This is where we show off decks of all kinds. So named because of the podcast segment Out of the Deck Box.

Story Circle for Episode 325

Marchesa, the Black Rose

Here’s the Story Circle we did on Episode 325!  We were going to do something completely different this episode (which you can still hear on episode 326 once it goes up!), but we spent entirely too much time on Conspiracy card discussions.  Since we didn’t have time to give our intended topic the treatment it deserves, we hurriedly decided to pick one of the new legends from Conspiracy and do a Story Circle!  This one looks like a lot of fun to play.  That could be because it bears a small resemblance to some other Commander decks we’ve played or created in the past.  Either way, hope everyone enjoys!

Corvin Powell’s Death Cloud Rock Deck

This is the deck that longtime listener Corvin Powell was playing at Grand Prix Richmond.  He put Death Cloud in more of a Rock-type build, which is more interactive and disruptive than Mike’s Death Tron deck. Since his deck is also a Death Cloud deck but a completely different take than Mike’s, we brought him on the show to talk about it!  He was on Episode 315 – The GP Richmond Episode (for obvious reasons) to talk about his deck, the GP itself, and everything else, so go give it a listen!

Mike’s Modern Death Tron Deck

Here’s the Green-Black Tron deck Mike took to GP Richmond.  In his own words, he went this way because he really wanted to play Death Cloud in Modern, so he took a stock Green-Red Tron list and adapted it to suit his needs.  If you’d like to hear more about it, be sure to listen to Episode 315 – The GP Richmond Episode!  We also brought on listener Corvin Powell to talk about his Death Cloud deck, click the link to see it!

Brian’s Standard Jund SCG IQ Deck

Fanatic of Xenagos
If you listened to episode 312 of The Mana Pool, you’ll know that Brian told us all about his Standard Jund brew that he was planning on taking to the StarCityGames Invitational Qualifier on 2/15.  Here’s the final list that he actually played at the IQ, presented for your perusal.  He piloted the deck to a 2-3 record.  While that’s not the best record, he did say the deck showed a lot of promise and that it was a tons of fun to play.

 

If you guys have any questions, comments, or suggestions just leave them in the comments!

Mike’s SCG IQ Top 8 Maze’s End Deck

Maze's End
Brian and I went to a StarCityGames Invitational Qualifier last weekend (02-15-2014).  You heard Brian talk about his deck on Episode 312 (hopefully his decklist will make it to the site soon enough), but my own deck was just casually mentioned.  Since I ended up making Top 8, Chewie had me write up the decklist and some quick comments to highlight a few recent changes, important cards, and how I did at the event.  You can find those comments at the bottom of the decklist, given below:
