Deck Tech: Puresteel Tezzeret with Mark Morrison
Mark Morrison's Puresteel-Tezz hybrid is 4-0
“I wanted to play Puresteel Paladin since I had practiced with it a lot, but when I got here I couldn’t find any Sword of War and Peace.” Undeterred, Mark pulled a MacGyver, whipping up a solution involving some C4 and a roadside cactus.
Mark’s concoction came out as a combination of the Puresteel aggro shell topped off with Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas to create an aggressive army with enough late-game resilience to seal the win against any opponent. So far, so good, as Mark started off 4-0 despite not finalizing his deck until 30 minutes before the tournament.
Mark has made use of all of his cards so far, sometimes winning games by making Vault Skirge a 5/5 with Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, other times poisoning his opponent with large Inkmoth Nexuses, and once halting his Grixis opponent’s win conditions with Witchbane Orb.
It’s a very interesting deck that obviously has some legs despite being relatively rough around the edges, at least according to Mark. Could this be a new Standard contender? Keep track of Mark’s progress to find out!
