Jakub Slemr's Five Color Black

Download Arena Decklist

Jakub Slemr had a very successful career on the Magic Pro Tour, with the crown in his resume being his World Champion title in 1997. He used a combination of rainbow lands to supplement a powerful black weenie strategy with the best splash cards the other four colors could provide. With Five Color Control now a popular strategy in the world of modern Standard, there is the real possibility a deck playing all five colors could regain the championship again in 2008. You can find out all weekend long on magicthegathering.com as the World Championships kick off today, with the live webcast of the Top 8 set to begin from Memphis at 9:45 a.m. ET on December 14th.
