Ali Plays Azorius Affinity


Welcome back everyone! Today we get to play Historic after Jumpstart Horizons came out. We refocus on Affinity as I have a sweet list form a friend of mine that I've been having good success with. Usually, Artifact aggro is low to the ground and uses Tempered Steel, but there's no Tempered Steel here!

Let's go ahead and look at the decklist!

Time Stamps:

02:45 - Match 1

13:45 - Match 2

19:36 - Match 3

25:23 - Match 4

40:31 - Match 5

After playing the deck, I have to say, it is a powerful deck that I believe can be a contender, especially since the list is not fully optimized. Going forward I would cut the main deck Glass Caskets and mess around with some Nettlecyst. At least three of them and if they proved good, I would move up to four. I was surprised at how well this deck would do because I thought you absolutely needed Tempered Steel and Nettlecyst to have a good artifact aggressive deck, but you don't. Skilled Animator and the The Blackstaff of Waterdeep really make all your artifacts threats and I love that because you do not have to over commit to the battlefield. You just need two or three creatures and that is enough. With the blackstaff one could be enough!

That's it for today, thanks for reading/watching!
