The Versus Series moves to Legacy this week for #SCGDC and battles with one of the most important matchups you can find in the format - Omni-Tell versus Delver of Secrets!
This week Carsten Kotter takes a look at Legacy's top tier as a preview to #SCGDC, anticipating what the best decks in the format are and how likely each is to make a significant dent in the Legacy Open's metagame.
For today's Daily Digest, GerryT examines an unusually grindy and controlling take on Wild Nacatl and friends in Legacy. Test it out and maybe give it a whirl this weekend at the $5K Legacy Premier IQ at #SCGRICH!
With more time now to reflect on his experience from Grand Prix Lille, Carsten presents not just his report from that tournament but what he's learned and how that informs his choices as he moves forward and rebuilds the deck.
In today's video, GerryT looks at an unusual Delver build from a Grand Prix Trial at GP Lille, testing out Death's Shadow in Legacy as an efficient tempo threat in this low-curve aggro/tempo build.

Carsten Kotter is here to share his multi-format look at Magic Origins, going through the set for playable cards in Modern, Vintage, and Legacy as well as intriguing cards for Standard.
Punishing Fire is a great tool in Legacy for beating up on creature decks, and so is the Counterbalance / Terminus shell powered up by Sensei's Divining Top. What if we put all of these things together?
Only in Legacy can an all-but-forgotten Tier Three archetype show up and put two players in the same Grand Prix Top Eight. Just when you think it's solved, things shift on you at least a little - that is why it's such an awesome format!
Carsten Kotter isn't quite comfortable with his deck choice for Grand Prix Lille, and he showcases his metagame analysis and deck options while synthesizing something new for the event!
Powerful decks have a habit of jumping formats, and when a deck jumps from Legacy to Modern or from Vintage to Legacy, paying attention is a good idea. Stax has been ported to Legacy before, but today's build might just have the right stuff!
After featuring it in yesterday's Daily Digest, GerryT felt compelled to work on Legacy this week and puts Monastery Mentor through its paces in the Gitaxian Probe/Cabal Therapy/Brainstorm format to see how crazy it really is.
Monastery Mentor has been breaking out all across Modern in recent experiments, and it's even found a home in Vintage as a powerful kill card. In today's Daily Digest, Gerry looks at a deck trying to find it a good home in Legacy, where its spell-triggered token generation is particularly good with Cabal Therapy.
With Magic Origins taking great effort to hearken back to Magic's oldest days with a few of its cards, Carsten just has to explore how Eternal formats might use these newest analogues to broken restricted Vintage cards.
Chris VanMeter went with G/R Devotion instead of G/R Dragons this past weekend, and as good as Devotion is, that is not a mistake he intends to make twice.
Gerry takes another look at Legacy thanks to a recent 4-0 finish that evolves a well-known former archetype - Landstill - by taking out some of the key components, including Standstill itself.
While he did not do so well as he might have hoped at the recent Prague Eternal event, Carsten takes a retrospective look at that weekend's events thanks to the Top Eight results from the weekend.
Legacy is a format full of powerful cards and high-octane strategies, and there is nothing quite like copying Cloudposts and casting Eldrazi to push you even further over the top.
Legacy decks often update with fair regularity as new sets release and the format shifts... but Gerry has found an archetype that hasn't budged much in years, and he wonders what a new take on it might look like.
