    A deck per week challenge

    Hello The Source!

    Over the years of playing magic, I have acquired quite an impressive collection of legacy staples. As such, I aspire to have played every viable legacy deck possible. The rules of this challenge are simple: I will play a different legacy deck at every legacy event until there aren't any viable options left.

    The list of decks I've come up with so far is as follows:

    12Post, Ad Nauseum Lands, Aeon Bridge, Affinity, Aggro Loam, Aluren, Aluren (Recruiterless), Bant Aggro, Brave Sir Robin, BR Reanimator, BU Reanimator, BUG Death's Shadow, BUG Opposition, Burn, Canadian Threshold (RUG delver), Cephalid Breakfast, Colorless Eldrazi, Deadguy Ale, Death & Taxes, Doomsday, Dragon Stompy, Dredge, Eldrazi & Taxes, Elves, Enchantress, Esper Blade, Four Horsemen, Goblins, Goblin Charbelcher, Goblin Prison (Moggcatcher), Grixis Delver, Hexmage Depths, High Tide, Hive Mind Combo, Imperial Bomberman, Imperial Painter, Infect, Jund, Jund Depths, Landstill, Life.dec (infinite life combo), Manaless Dredge, Maverick, Merfolk, Miracles, MUD, Necrotic Ooze combo, Nic Fit, Pox, Quinn, RG Lands, RUG Punishing Ascension, RUG Waterfalls, Scapeshift, Sea Stompy, Shardless BUG, Shared Fate, Show and Tell (Mono-blue), Sneak and Show, Sneak through the Breach, Soldier Stompy, Spanish Inquisition, Stasis, StifleNaught, Stax, Storm, Tezzeret thopters, Tin Fins, TITI twister (Thing in the Ice), UR Delver, UWR Nahiri Control, Worldgorger Reanimator, Zombie Bombardment

    To qualify as a "different" deck, it must have at least 15 cards in the mainboard which are different vs a deck on this list. I am allowing multiple variants on the same archetype (such as BR reanimator vs UB reanimator). The deck also has to have placed top32 within the past 4 years (I'm not saying all of these decks listed have done so, but this is to prevent someone from just submitting some random list of 75 cards and claiming it's a legacy deck).

    Does anyone have any additions? Outside of buying 4 moats to build dutch stax I'm open to recommendations. Other than that, assume I can build it.

    EDIT 1: Would people be interested if I post lists/records after each event? It will probably only be 3 rounds of legacy per deck played.
    EDIT 2: Added a couple of decks to the list.
    EDIT 3: 4/20/17, I somehow just remembered Hive Mind combo existed. Totally spaced on that deck apparently. I also alphabetized the list of decks.

    I don't think that this deck has ever put up a top 8, but that's not the reason to play this deck.

    Sounds awesome. I have just a few suggestions. Granted, not all of them pass the required top 32 criteria, but also none of them are random 75 card piles either. I love how long that list is though, legggacccyyyyy!

    Deadguy Ale, Stasis, Parfait, Green Stax (Trinity Green), Esper Mentor, Brave Sir Robin, Braids Stax, Pox.

    Also I'd suggest some fairly different types of things you have listed, such as UR and BUG Landstill, Junk/Sneak/BUG Pod Nic Fit, adding a few different flavors of tempo such as BUG and RUG in addition to UR and Grixis.

    Like the old school 43 lands.dec decks? Lands is technically on the list 3 times otherwise, RG lands, hexmage depths, and Jund depths. If you feel the other build should be on the list I'll add it; I figured it's just the predecessor to the newer build so it doesn't really count since it's not *that* different than the RG build is now.

    A couple friends had pointed out I missed Deadguy Ale, Brave Sir Robin, and Pox. I'm not sure Pox should really make the cut here, because I feel it hasn't been relevant in a really really long time. Everything else should make the rotation though! For Nic Fit I don't want to spend 12 weeks just playing variants of that deck, since there's so many! I do want to pick one of the "wackiest" builds of Nic Fit to try though. I saw one which had something like 3 diabolic intent, 1 academy rector, 1 omniscience, and 1 emrakul, the aeon's torn in the main deck, and I think a way to tutor up the academy rector (can't remember what it was, I think it might have been living wish in the main deck and academy rector was in the board).

    Was braids stax even ever an actual deck?

    I read over that list thrice and missed it every time...

    Ooops All Spells, 4C Delver (BURG), Jeskai Delver, Jeskai Blade, Abzan (Black Maverick)

    There really are a lot of "viable" Legacy.decs...


    Also: Esper Blade is on the list twice.

    What about Angel Stompy? Surely your "impressive collection" must include 4 Moat?

    Edit: Never mind, apparently i can't read.

    Re: A deck per week challenge

    Impressive list of decks and I apploude your goal! I'm planning something similar for Modern, where I literally have every single tier x- tier 1 deck. I'm even thinking about writting sort of blog/reports from our weekly tournaments (fnm like).

    edit: you really need to have Pox on the list. The deck is delightfully evil

    No Nourishing Lich, no bueno.
    The seven cardinal sins of Legacy:
    1. Discuss the unbanning of Land Tax Earthcraft.
    2. Argue that banning Force of Will would make the format healthier.
    3. Play Brainstorm without Fetchlands.
    4. Stifle Standstill.
    5. Think that Gaea's Blessing will make you Solidarity-proof.
    6. Pass priority after playing Infernal Tutor.
    7. Fail to playtest against Nourishing Lich (coZ iT wIlL gEt U!).

    I've never heard of that thread, but it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever read.

    Re: A deck per week challenge

    Does Green Stax refer to the one with a full playset of Tireless Tracker, alongside Crucible and Asuza? Seemed like a fun list.

    And speaking of green stompy, I placed 23rd in a 72 man event at the start of the year with Eureka Order, does that make it count?
