Modern Jeskai Murktide Control by Evart Moughon
With Unholy Heat emerging as one of the premier removal spells in Modern, control decks have begun to move away from planeswalkers as their win conditions. Over the weekend, I put together this Jeskai Murktide control list that plays Murktide Regent as its Heat-proof win condition.
Not only is it nice to dodge most removal spell in this very removal-heavy format, you gain some extra percentage points since players will often keep cards like Lightning Bolt, Unholy Heat and Prismatic Ending in their decks post-sideboard since they’ll expect you to have Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Dragon’s Rage Channeler in your deck.
At the time of writing, I’m 17-5 with this 75, and would recommend it if you’re looking for a new control deck for your next Modern event!
