An Underexplored Color Combination

Posted in Daily Deck on May 9, 2014

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

Historically speaking, white-black-red has been one of the least successful color combinations in Magic tournament history. However, VirgoIII finished in 4th place in a recent Modern Premier Event with a white-black-red deck that looks exceptionally powerful and contains some of the strongest cards Modern has to offer.

Thoughtseize, Dark Confidant, and Liliana of the Veil offer quite a bit of control over a game, but often at the expensive of paying life that some decks can take advantage of. This deck, however, has Ajani Vengeant and Lightning Helix to recoup some of that life. This deck also features highly efficient cards in Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Lingering Souls, both of which have a big impact while being hard to remove. Throw in some of the most efficient one-mana spells in Modern and you have a very powerful deck.
