Welcome back everyone! Today we explore Delver of Secrets in best of three. Zan Syed has been hovering in the top 100 of Mythic with this list, so I thought I would give it a whirl. I am not usually a fan of tempo decks and their play patterns, but we do not have a Delver deck yet and this list looked very interesting!
Let's go ahead and look at the decklist!

Zan's list played a lot of module double faced cards in order to trigger Delver of Secrets flip ability as often as possible and it worked really well! Jwari Disruption // Jwari Ruins and Siphon Insight are amazing here and I have not played them in a better deck. Deck has a lot of early game pressure and longevity; it really is a pretty fun deck that gives you a lot of options and makes your decisions really matter. Check it out if you like tempo style decks!
That's it for today, thanks for reading/watching!
