How to Beat Tainted Pact in Historic

Don’t worry about it.

At this point, it’s safe to say that Tainted Pact is the best deck in Historic. About half the field in the MPL/Rivals League Weekend was playing it, and these are the best players in the world trying to do their best to pick up wins. There’s certainly a good chance that Pact gets banned as a result, but until it does (if it does), I want to give you the tools to beat it. I myself played Jeskai Control, and went 5-0 against Pact decks. If you’re interested in that deck, you can read Huey’s Deck Guide here. Between that and the playtesting I did for the event, I’ve got a good idea of how to beat Tainted Pact and how you can fight against the (mostly) singleton menace.

First of all, if you want to learn how to play Pact, I recommend the Deep Dive I did. To find out how to beat it, simply read on.
