Deck Tech: 5-Color Control with Chris Higashi
Las Vegas native and StarCityGames.com Open Series regular Chris Higashi has an undying love for control decks. Even in a format ruled by aggro-control, Chris is rocking a polychromatic control deck reminiscent of one Sun+Titan and a single Elesh+Norn%2C+Grand+Cenobite. Even with all the card drawing and an Unburial+Rites, the opponent can save removal or counters just for those threats and often Chris will end up decked due to all the card drawing. To supplement his low threat count and in a stark departure from Gerry’s Invitational deck, Chris is packing three Galvanic+Blasts in the main deck.
“Sometimes you just burn them out, since your Sun+Titans will let you always have metalcraft late.”
If a highly favorable aggro matchup wasn’t good enough in game one, it gets even better after sideboarding thanks to a full complement of Whipflares and a pair of Timely+Reinforcements, so try this deck on for size if you’re sick of Delver+of+Secrets winning.
