Team America: It will be 9/11 times 2356.

March 4, 2011

When the rest of the world thinks of Team America, they think of the 2004 flick staring a cast of marionettes, having weird puppet sex while signing about freedom, and how dicks love to fuck pussies, and assholes, Team America to the Magic community on the other hand is a UBG Aggro Control deck, one with such simplicity anyone can pick it up and play it.

Team America relies on the resilience of laying down threats, not just creature wise, but spell wise as well.
From land destruction, to disruption, card advantage, and stopping nasty effects from happening to your face Team America applies the pressure to win.

This past weekend in DC at the SGC Open, Daniel Signorini came in first place with his Team America build, Daniel Signorini is the original designer of the Legacy Team America build which you can read about more at The Source, however, like every other deck in any format there is always evolution to further answer a question you really didn’t want to see hit the field. So what does Team America look like? quite simply it is this:

Original Deck List:

4 Tombstalker
4 Tarmogoyf
