Our deck of the week a Jeskai Control which is currently trending on TCGPlayer. The deck came in first place during the MTGO Standard Challenge in June 12th.

Deck Notes

As you’d expect with any deck with mostly red/blue, this deck has a lot of direct burn. And, aside from Goldspan Dragon, it’s not a particularly expensive deck either. Ultimately, this deck is going to be the counter/burn you hate to see, but love to play.

One of the really nice combos you’re going to find with this deck is Hinata and Magma Opus. Hinata reduces casting costs for spells for each target. Plus, Magma Opus targets multiple targets! It’s match made in Kamigawa.
