Decklists

I play a good deal of different Modern decks every week on stream that viewers send in. When a deck feels powerful, or fun, I often end up playing it more than once. This page will serve as a collection of the decks I have played multiple times and have developed preferences for. Using the links below or the search function you can find my latest preferred deck list for various Modern archetypes.

You can also find a list of literally every deck I have ever played on stream on my streamdecker page here.

High Potential Decks

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.

Fan Favorite Decks

These are decks that we play on stream regularly because people like them, but they tend to have a few too many poor match ups in the format to be something I think will ever be a major player in Modern. They can be fun and powerful in the right meta game though.
