Temur Delver at World Championship

By Shuhei Nakamura

Shuhei Nakamura is a member of the Pro Tour Hall of Fame, former Player of the Year, and is one of just six players with more than 400 lifetime pro points.

Editor’s Note: Shuhei submitted his Daily Decks before the Banned and Restricted Announcement and, as such, did not know the contents of the announcement. We still thought it was worth revisiting the format prior to the announcement.

The World Championship Week wasn't only for Standard decks.

I would like to talk about the next Pro Tour's format, Modern, starting with the Temur deck the Japanese (Kentaro Yamamoto, Yuuya Watanabe, Yuuki Ichikawa) piloted.

The question being, how to develop the blue-red Delver of Secrets deck I introduced last week even further.

Their decision was to add green, or more specifically Tarmogoyf, the strongest two-mana creature in the format.

Tarmogoyf is two mana but doesn't die to Lightning Bolt. It easily grows into a 4/5 green monster due to the numerous sorceries in the deck.

That's probably enough to explain how good this card is.

Treasure Cruise and Tarmogoyf do not work well together. However, even if you have no graveyard, your opponent has one. I guess they decided it won't matter because the graveyard will probably contain three or so cards the next turn anyway.
