Historic Temur Opus by Gui Cohen
Historic Temur Opus landed in fifth place at the Insight Esports 5k Historic Open over the weekend. There’s been a lot of Historic decks based around Magma Opus recently because its synergy with Torrential Gearhulk, and rightfully so – it’s a truly amazing combo.
This deck is cool because, at its core, this is a Simic Flash deck with the combo on the top-end. I’ve always enjoyed Simic Flash decks and I’ve always enjoyed Torrential Gearhulk control decks, so this deck has it all!
Nightpack Ambusher is towards the top-end of cards to spend an early Treasure on, too. For instance, you discard Magma Opus to make a Treasure on turn two, then on the third turn, you can flash in Nightpack Ambusher at the end of turn. Sounds sweet to me and I’m looking forward to trying this version of the deck.
