Card of the week & Thopter Sword Deck

April 25, 2011

so this weeks card was banned in extended a couple of seasons ago, due to its interaction with thopter foundry. it had an amazing recursion ratio which piratically broke the format and made it almost impossible to defend against.

This however leads into the next article of this past weekends 11th place winning deck. Thopter Sword by by Adam Barnello at the StarCityGames.com Legacy Open tournament in Boston, Massachusetts, United States on 2011-04-24.

I will admit I love the Thopter Sword combo, I think it is one of the greatest artifact combo every created in the MTG realm of gaming. While unfortunately I do not have deck tossed together with this combo in to share with you, what I did see this week was in fact a really strong Thopter/Sword combo deck that came in 11th place at the Boston Open series this past weekend. It was wielded by Adam Barnello the premise of the deck is really simple. keep the field locked down with counterbalance, and counter cards, prevent your opponent from attacking you with moat, and get your combo pieces out to start swinging.
