Festival Event Story Decks
My Love Language Is Dinos
This deck is focused on the new-found connection between Huatli and Saheeli after Saheeli became stranded on the plane after the Phyrexian invasion. Huatli is braving the depths with the help of the dinosaurs of Ixalan and some new metal friends as well courtesy of Saheeli and her filigree. This deck focuses on building mana fast and playing as many Dinosaurs as possible, bashing down the opponent's creatures and winning through pure reptilian power!
One Sun for a Thousand Moons
Huatli's dear cousin and noble warrior Inti has been lost in the carnage wrought by Vito's fanatical crusade, the only solace being the Sun Empire's discovery of their roots beneath the crust of Ixalan. Play with Inti and the warriors of the Oltec, known as the Thousand Moons, in their fight against the newly formed horde of demonic vampires and the fungal plague of the Mycotyrant. This deck focuses on attacking and tapping to make tokens, and growing creatures with +1/+1 counters. Use your forces well to attack for the win or make them stronger than your opponent can hope to match!
New World, New Friends
Is that Kellan? Yes, it is. The adventuring half-fae has found himself on Ixalan in the center of the rush to find the Core. Join him as he has his own adventure on Ixalan, running from goblins, dealing with vampiric plots, and finding new friends along the way. This deck focuses on using the explore mechanic and interacting with the new Cave lands to buff up your creatures and filter through your deck to find what you need. It's time for your adventure through the caverns of Ixalan!
The Mycotyrant has awoken, and it is ready to feed! Become one with the fungus and begin your takeover of the plane! Full of creeping mushrooms and hungry Goblins, this deck looks to put things in your graveyard, create tokens, build your ever-growing army, and most importantly to feed the Mycotyrant.
What does a pirate live for except for a bountiful pile of treasure? Well, for Malcolm and Breeches, the greatest treasure is their lives! Join the dynamic, high-flying, explosive-arming duo as they figure out how to make their way far under the deep blue sea they are used to. Make Treasure and use it to boost your crew! This deck loves to live fast and free, making and spending tokens as it pleases to blast down foes, draw cards, and buff creatures.
Non-Event Story Decks
Does It Belong in a Museum?
At the request of Saheeli, Quintorius Kand has come to Ixalan, testing out his new Planeswalker spark. Using the knowledge gained at Strixhaven, Quintorius helps the Sun Empire uncover their lost history and, in the process, discovers more about the mysterious Coin Empire lost to time. As he goes, he learns the importance of integrity and who it is that should tell the history of Ixalan. This deck focuses on using the discover mechanic to cast cards for free and build a powerful board of creatures and artifacts that can create interesting combinations and spiral into powerful win conditions.
Fall of the Fanatic
Vito has returned, and he is on a quest to find his true god. Gone is his love for the saints of the Legion of Dusk. He follows Tarrian's journal to Aclazotz, the ancient bat god sealed away in the Core of Ixalan. Join him on his pilgrimage, through his crusade, and to his ultimate defeat. This deck grows stronger from fallen friends and foes, reveling in different ways to sacrifice tokens and artifacts to make strong plays and find powerful removal!
