World Champion Decks

25 posts in this topic

Hey guys! I'm thinking about doing an on-going series in which I offer in-depth decks techs for previous world championship-winning decks. I have a bad habit of starting a series and then never finishing them, but when I do finally decide to film one I'll be posting it here. :)

Hey look, I actually recorded a 2nd video in a non-MTGO series. Hurray! 2000 World Championship deck, Mono-Blue Tinker! Check it out.

 

Well, it's a thing now, you can't stop. Lol :)

I haven't created an official playlist for the series yet on my channel, so I can still deny it exists! :P

Well, don't tell anyone, but I'm right-now-this-very-second uploading this Sunday's video, which could be another World Championship deck deck...which might possibly solidify it as an actual series. :P

Maybe.

New addition to the series, and the oldest deck we've covered so far. Prismatic Black Aggro, the 1997 world champion. Check it out!

Another episode in the series! Psychatog, the sadistic UB Control deck that won the World Championship in 2002. Apologies for the horrific, nightmare-inducing thumbnail. :P

Another World Championship deck tech! Wildfire won it in 1999, and it did it by wiping the board of creatures AND land and then beating down with various dragons and artifact-things. Check it out!

I don't mean to go so long between uploads for this series, but I keep going months at at time without uploading! Well, today we have Astral Slide, the deck that won in 2004, winning out over one of the most oppressive decks ever in Standard: Ravager Affinity! Check it out!

I present to you, literally the most degenerate deck to ever win the World Championship. Not even joking, deck is nuts!

A lot of people might think of Doran, the Siege Tower as a casual jank card, but did you know it won the World Championship in 2007? Check it out!

If you like Bant Spirits in Modern or UB Faeries in Pauper, this deck might be for you! Standard Faeries won the championship in 2008 by controlling the board and wailing away with pesky, evasive threats.

In 2009, NAYA ZOO won the World Championship. Well...sort of. This is a bit less aggressive and a bit more of a beatdown deck, but it could put out tons of power super quick, it could generate card advantage in grindy matches, AND it got to play Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile in STANDARD!

In 2010, Jace the Mind Sculptor was legal in Standard, so naturally a UB Control deck won the World Championship! No surprise there. Here's the full deck tech though!

In 2011, a G/R Ramp deck won the World Championship by beating face with Inferno Titan and Primeval Titan. Assuming it didn't just kill you with it's lands...which it could totally do! Check it out!

In 2012, WOTC technically ended the World Championship. They replaced it with the "Player Championship," and the format was the brand new Modern format that was created several months earlier. The change only lasted 1 year, as WOTC would revert back to the World Championship the following year, but in the meantime Jund would steal the show while Modern was in the spotlight. I know it's a pretty typical Modern archetype, but if you're interested in what the deck looked like back in 2012, check it out!

Got another edition to the series! 2013 Jeskai Control! Most control decks look to stall the game long enough to win with some combo or big late-game finisher, but this was just a super grindy control deck that looked out-value the opponent with Snapcaster Mage and Restoration Angel.

Got another World Championship deck tech for you guys! Sidisi Whip is a Sultai Reanimator deck that was actually a fair, mid-range deck that used reanimation to go wide with tokens. It's quite different from the usual "cheat a massive threat into play" style of reanimator you might be used to. Check it out!
