Cheap! Cheap! Lich! Lich!
Well, that was one of my more obscure references. And hey, that’s also a great segue into the topic of today’s post, since it’s a deck built around a card so ignored by tournament Spikes (a group of players who know most cards in the format) that they often have to read the card when they see it sitting across the table.
I’ve posted before about why I play Magic: The Gathering, and just what kind of decks I like to build. Today, dear readers, I’m not just going to show you one of those decks, I’m going to show you one of my favorite decks. It’s cheap, it’s flavorful, and it has gone toe to toe with decks that cost ten times what it cost to build. It’s rogue, it’s unexpected, and it is a heck of a lot of fun to play at Friday Night Magic.
And hey, it’s Standard Legal for another month or so, if you want to try it out yourself.
I got that lich a phylactery. Liches love phylacteries.
