    !Tier Legacy Decks/Decklists & Prices Apr-2012!

    ~All decklists are of the post mental misstep banning era, aka, Oct 2nd 2011 through Apr 9th 2012, a good 6 months + worth of data. Decklists are from the Starcity open series legacy events between this time period, have to of placed just 2 or more times in the top 16. Lists are based on highest performance / most recent. (Example: Burn's highest finish was 1st, but it placed it's highest position twice, so I used the version that won the most recently.)

    ~Please note; I know what placed & is posted may or may not be the same exact version we would normally run, expect, are used to, etc, keep in mind that everyone has their own playstyles, tweaks, resources, metagames get taken into account, etc. What's important is that the majority / basis of these decklist are a good enough representation of the decks themselves, & have even proven themselves as good decks thanks to the players that piloted them.

    ~Singles prices will be based on Starcity, cheapest version/set available, (Example: Dual lands will be revised prices, not beta) at NM/M condition, the first total is a sum of those prices. A second total will be a "range" total for that same exact decklist that is utilized from tcgplayer. In the interest of savings, there will be a "Replace Mint/Near Mint with Played" option at the bottom of each list for more expensive cards.

    Re: !!!-TIER LEGACY DECK PRICES // APRIL 2012-!!! (Also a bit of a metagame overview)

    The amount of text in the beginning is pretty overwhelming, heavy to read and the text is all over the place, could use some more work for easier reading. A list like this would be really interesting read for new players who are looking to find a deck within their budget. What I find interesting is that you've split up Stoneblade decks and Maverick decks into two separate decks. I think it might be better to list them as one in the list and then just have examples of different versions, like Maverick with U splash, punishing fires and straight GW list.

    Also, where did you pick up the data about how decks have been performing? TC Decks has a really neat page with lots of tournament information and data about tier decks: TC Decks. With a quick look I would say that Maverick and Stoneblade have put best numbers with RUG being close 3rd.

    Last note: change the T.E.S. list to Bryant Cook's latest list from Established Decks. At least put down a link to the deck's thread at established decks section. Would be pretty cool if every deck would have a link to their own threads for easy further research - and a lot of more work for you. ;)

    A link to each decklist, that is a really good idea thank you >^,^< ~EDIT: I made the players name, where they played, what place they finished, the event, the date, & the location stand out by changing the ink to green, I hope that is enough information, ty again for the suggestion.

    Also I got the lists from each top 16 of the starcity sunday legacy events, I looked at each top 16 starting with 10-02-2011, first one after misstep ban, and wrote down the names of the 16 decks that placed, then did so for the next sunday and the next and so on, all the way to Apr 8th 2012, then I went back and found whatever each deck that placed more than once in the top 16, and found their highest placing, and if there was a tie for that deck's highest placing in 2 tournaments or more, I took the most recent version, there was some "minor" exceptions, like when the highest merfolk deck was a non traditional version that splashed black & white, and since nearly all the other merfolk decks were mono blue, i went with the highest mono blue merfolk list, so I made sure the decklists represent the decks on a proper level in that aspect, as for the little tweaks in them after that, everyone runs their own setup and I didn't want to mess with the decklists themselves since they had proven themselves, as long as the decklist was a good enough representation I was ok with it, I't'd be alot harder to "Switch" cards I'd run or not run in the decks I have myself, and it'd be even harder to speculate on what to "fix" in decklists that I don't run myself.

    Thank you for the hard work in putting this together.

    Mana bases are the culprit. I wish WotC would reprint duals. Fuck collectors, this is a game foremost.

    The $notes for the RUG list says Polluted Delta can't get any lands in the list but that is incorrect, Polluted delta can fetch both Volcanic and Tropical Island.



    Also, good job. I wish this was around last year when I decided to buy into legacy, definitely would've saved time and money.

    This is a good resource, thanks for all the time you put into it. Does need some formatting work though.

    Looks like I need to spend at least 1 grand to make a decent Legacy deck.

    No wonder the popularity of Maverick. It costs around $1500 compared to $2000-$2500 of blue decks but it outperforms all of them.

    Having said that the prices are really crazy currently. Tarmogoyfs are still pulling around $100 in US while you can find them for 55 ($72) in Europe. On the other hand Savannahs are $100 now?? What nonsense.

    As I was making this list over the past couple days, I had to go all the way back up in the middle of it from like the 20th deck down and fix the price of Savannah on every list, because in between the time I started and the time I finished, which was only a few days, Savannah went from 69.99 to 99.99 lol, grats Maverick I suppose.

    Those are SSG prices. In reality you can get cards for like 20-40% less on ebay, or even like 20% less at just about any other store. However, SSG is a decent source cause they have everything stocked and are at least consistent in their overpricing.


    But anyways, thanks for putting this all together I read though it is rather informative and a good source of info for someone looking to put some money into a legacy deck.

    By the way, the last deck there "G/B" is Nic fit, it is often GBW or GBR too. It hasn't seen much play in the US but it is a tier 1 deck mostly because of play in Europe.

    Oh so THAT is what this "nic fit" deck is that I keep hearing about, thank you for clearing that one up, fixing that now. >^,^<

    I would show this to people that want to get into Legacy.... but with it being based on SCG pricing, it would send them running -_-

    Perhaps doing it on like the tcgplayer low/med/high scale would make it less frightening...

    Good work nonetheless.

    Re: !!!-TIER LEGACY DECK PRICES // APRIL 2012-!!! (Also a bit of a metagame overview)

    Great post there man, hopefully in the near future you could post every playable legacy deck just to get a view on what is probably the cheapest to play. Also it would be good to get T8 from other sources other than SCG as basis. Since America is not the only country playing Legacy, anyway just an after though.

    As for the decks, wow, I didn't know my deck costs around $1,200, that's just insane when I just barely even spent $500 to build it (I got the Bob's and Thoughtseize back when it was still $10 ea, how lucky). And one of the cheapest that I would surely consider would be Dredge, I think this would justify me building it right now.

    Actually the more information I can get the better, I just eat up statistics and average's and such, if you can recommend any other places that post top 8 decklists for big events across the pond yell@me with a link or 2 >^,^<

    and actually elves, merfolk, and goblins are all in the list, each with about half a dozen+ showings.

    Sorry didn't see them, must have browsed through without reading them all (edited my post). As others have said TC Decks is probably one of the best sources of T8, I look through it for some input as well.

    Also on the BW list, there are more optimal builds already than the one posted. will look if I can find a more optimal list for you to use.

    Sweet, I'm $1,250 away from completing my Canadian list.
    I am convinced that WotC is "dumbing" the game because of all the stupid posts they come across on MTG-related forums

    feline, thank you for your great work.

    A budget/personal preference suggestion: In the TES decklist you can swap some/all of the Orim's Chants for Silences to circumvent Leyline of Sanctity, as a budget measure, and because you don't use the kicker cost too often to become mandatory to carry Orim's Chants instead of Silences.

    Regards.
