Decks listed in this section are ones that feel reasonable to me after playing them, but have yet to put up consistent finishes at large Modern events. These are decks that with good play and possibly more tuning I believe could eventually slide into the proven decks of the format with a few good event results.
This is an aggro-control, or “tempo”, deck that plays efficient interaction to survive the early turns. It looks to grind out card advantage in longer games on the back of cards like Spellstutter Sprite, Snapcaster Mage, and Bitterblossom. If you would like some insight on how to sideboard with this archetype be sure to check out my guide here.
This is an aggro-control, or “tempo”, deck. It looks to set its opponent behind with cards like Remand while applying pressure with evasive threats like Delver of Secrets and Nimble Obstructionist. Cards like Lightning Bolt and Wizard’s Lightning allow us to both control the board or close out games when our opponent’s health total gets low. You can read a bit about this history of this deck on CSI here as well as check out a primer after my run at SCG Indy here.
