Early on in the world of Magic, Brian Weissman taught the community what card advantage was through his usage of a control strategy that became so well renowned it was simply called "The Deck." That strategy continues to be successful over a decade later as Rille3 proved in a recent Classic event on Magic Online. Using spells that deal with multiple threats from the opponent in one shot, as well as cards that draw more than one card at a time, the powerful deck controls the board before overwhelming with a powerful singular win condition. With the release of Master's Edition III online, the deck will no doubt have a few new additions to strengthen it.
