This article is part 11 of a 10 part series covering the Singleton Guild Wheel Project, a 10 totally real and not fakedeck project where there is only a single copy of any non-basic land among the 10 decks. Each deck uses the color combination of a different Ravnican guild. The methodology is introduced here and expanded upon each week by featuring a deck formed using part of the Wheel. Since the deck building process is iterative, expect featured decks to change in between articles. For the complete introduction to the project, see our first article here. In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.
Back in everyone’s filthy casual days, we may or may not have played completely awkward decks that we didn’t quite remember. Rummaging through my old collection of decks I stumbled across my old Chandler deck, and boy was it a doozie. Homelands was probably the best set in the history of Magic, and 13-year old me couldn’t buy enough of those sweet sweet packs of eight cards each.
I updated the deck to add LOADS of synergy and created a pseudo cast of all-stars to really blow away my opponents. People would always say “Matt, could you PLEASE not play your Chandler deck this time? My Juggernaut just can’t take the abuse anymore! Plus, how in the world am I supposed to kill your Norin the Wary!?”
Well folks, today I’m going to show you the bestest of the besterest deck I’ve ever made in my life. This is the exact decklist that I ran when I was 13 in 2000, so some of the cards might seem old or out of place. The deck was my pride and joy though. Something that I thought something of my child, and I was it’s parent.
Thank you everyone for taking this seriously. I know we all had our silly decks when we were casual, but this was mine and it’s very personal to me. I’m glad I got the chance to share this with you. You all mean a lot to me. Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
