Deck Highlight: Legacy Bant Control


Legacy Bant Control by JACETMSST


With the recent bans of Arcum’s Astrolabe and Oko, Thief of Crowns, Legacy control players have been concerned that their archetype won’t be good anymore.

Still, Legacy is the only format where Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath can run rampant and he certainly did last Sunday, making an appearance in three copies of this Bant Control deck by Jacetms, who took down the Legacy Challenge.

This is a very linear Bant Control deck with good ol’ Swords to Plowshares, Terminus and Snapcaster Mage to handle creature decks and six Forces to handle the combo decks.


Ice-Fang Coatl


Snow lands are still here because of Ice-Fang Coatl, which certainly lost some power due to the departure of Arcum’s Astrolabe, but it’s still worth playing a few copies.



I think having a deck like this makes Legacy a healthier format. I love that Delver decks can be kept in check by the “bigger fish” just like in the good old days. I’m looking forward to playing and studying more Legacy with the format as healthy as it is!
