Legacy Bomberman – Deck Highlight

 

Legacy Bomberman by Kanican

 

Kanican is the Legacy Bomberman master. I often see their name among the MTGO winning lists and they always play some version of an Auriok Salvagers deck, with this particular 5-0 list packing some cool options.

 

Gyruda, Doom of DepthsAuriok SalvagersLion's Eye Diamond

I recorded a Legacy video with their old list six months ago, which used to be blue-white. You can give it a watch below, as it’ll give you an idea of how the deck functions.

 

 

The combo relies around Auriok Salvagers being able to buy back Lion’s Eye Diamond creating infinite mana. There are a handful of things that you can do with that infinite mana:

Old Bomberman lists used to play Mishra’s Bauble and Urza’s Bauble to cast infinitely. However, Kanican has cut those entirely now to not fall too hard against a Null Rod or a Collector Ouphe.

The deck also has a midrange approach with Gyruda, Doom of Depths being able to grind the game thanks to Cavern of Souls making it uncounterable.

As I previously mentioned, I’ve seen this deck in various color combination, with the most popular one lately being blue-white for Urza, Lord High Artificer. Kanican has cut that for more midrange cards like Dark Confidant and Kitesail Freebooter, which will both give you card advantage and protect your combo.

Having access to black means that you get to play with Plague Engineer in the sideboard. While it might seem crazy to give up your companion, I think it’s the right thing to do in matchups like Elves and Death and Taxes where you might never have the time to cast your Gyruda if you’re not dealing with the opponent’s creatures thanks to Plague Engineer.
