The buildup toward the release of Historic Horizons is now at its peak, and it's time to look at which existing decks stand to improve the most from the avalanche of new cards that are about to hit Historic. In some cases, a deck that already is good only needs one card from Historic Horizons in order to improve it, and in other cases I have gone for completely new takes on established decks.

#1: Tempered Steel

Tempered Steel beatdown decks have been around in Historic, but never really gained enough traction to be considered top tier. Now there are a lot of new artifacts and synergy cards getting added to the format, to the point that this could be a viable strategy. Here is what I have come up with:

This list is fairly cookie cutter, trying to maximize on all the best options. Each cheap artifact creature gets incrementally better because of the existence of Tempered Steel. Being able to beef up all the creatures in the deck goes a long way, and even makes a card like Ornithopter a reasonable inclusion.

Besides the good old beatdown strategy, we gain access to Thought Monitor for some additional card advantage. Thought Monitor is this deck's late game, and is going to help you to not run out of gas. You can also draw some cards off Esper Sentinel if the opponent allows you to do so. The deck closes games out by either a super fast aggressive draw, going over the top with card draw, or by Emry, Lurker of the Loch gaining you a bunch of value. With so many artifacts in the deck Emry seems worth it as a threat the opponent essentially has to answer.

If you have been playing Historic lately, you will be extremely familiar with Izzet Phoenix. The deck is worse without Brainstorm, and we see Warlord's Fury being used as a replacement here. While Izzet Phoenix is no longer the undisputed best deck in Historic, it is easily a top 5 strategy.

However, Historic Horizons should help Izzet Phoenix to regain that top spot in the format, as the addition of Unholy Heat should be a nice one. This deck loves having a card that can scale up and deal with large threats for a one mana investment. Making it to delirium in a deck with Faithless Looting and lots of other cantrips is a very reasonable ask.

This is a list from before Historic Horizons, because there is one simple card swap that makes the deck better. Notice those three copies of Shock? I fully expect Unholy Heat to take the place of Shock, and Unholy Heat might actually be good enough that it makes sense to play the full playset. Even against decks that spot removal isn't typically good, Unholy Heat should have some important applications. This can deal with larger threats like a Torrential Gearhulk or a planeswalker, which solves a lot of issues for the Izzet Phoenix deck.

#3: Golgari Citadel

Bolas's Citadel decks have not been super present in Historic lately, though they are still well known. Jund Sacrifice has been the flavor of sacrifice for a while now, but there are a few reasons that Golgari Citadel may make a comeback. This is a list I have put together that has promise:

There's a lot to like about this deck, and it could be the direction sacrifice decks go in the future, though it is of course very different from the version with cards like Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven. The deck is far from proven right now, and some numbers may end up needing to be adjusted. Key pieces to the deck like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Bolas's Citadel could end up being so important there should be four copies of them, though there is the obvious drawback of drawing two of a legendary card.

This deck models versions of the Bolas's Citadel deck that have been successful previously. While not brand new, both Shambling Ghast and Prosperous Innkeeper play well with what the deck is trying to do. Ramping into a Bolas's Citadel is going to be one of the easiest ways to win games, and both these cards create treasures to help enable that to happen.

With the addition of Yawgmoth, Thran Physician you want to have plenty of creatures that you don't mind sacrificing, and this deck provides them. You get a ton of value from sacrificing most of the creatures in this deck, which will help provide card draw to dig through your deck. It is not difficult to get Yawgmoth, Thran Physician down on turn three, so against opposing creature decks this deck should have some incredible turns, as you wipe away opposing creatures with the ability of Yawgmoth.

The deck ultimately wins a lot of games by draining the opponent out. Not only are there four copies of Blood Artist, but there are even a couple Bastion of Remembrance. There are a bunch of sacrifice outlets as well, so creatures should be hitting the graveyard a lot as you churn through your deck. This is one of the decks I'm really excited to play with, as while it's not brand new, it feels like it should play pretty differently compared to older versions of the strategy.

#4: Goblins Combo

Goblins is a tribe that has suffered over the past year or so. Seemingly each addition to the Historic format doesn't benefit the Goblin tribe, and when you aren't gaining new tools it means you fall behind. It has gotten to the point that currently it is extremely rare to see Gobins, even on the MTG Arena ladder. The deck clearly needs to change course, so I want to present a combo-based version of the deck enabled by Historic Horizons.

This is a list based off some early versions of the strategy I have seen floating around. Rather than relying on pure aggression with cards like Conspicuous Snoop, Goblin Chieftain, and Krenko, Mob Boss, the deck goes in a completely different direction.

The combo makes infinite mana, and requires three cards: Skirk Prospector, Putrid Goblin, and Grumgully, the Generous. The idea is you repeatedly sacrifice the Putrid Goblin as many times as you want for a single red mana, and each time it will come back onto the battlefield as it was before, thanks to Grumgully. Putrid Goblin seems like an innocuous persist creature, but this little Goblin has the ability to grant Goblins access to infinite mana, and that's a big deal.

Normally I wouldn't get too excited about a combo that requires three cards, but this one is pretty easy to assemble. Goblin Matron or Muxus, Goblin Grandee find the pieces of the combo since they are all Goblins. I wasn't sure whether the deck wants Collected Company or Goblin Ringleader in the four-drop slot, but I'm going with Collected Company for now, since it enables more turn-three wins.

Casting a turn-three Collected Company can fairly easily lead to having all three of your combo creatures in play. Once you have the infinite mana there are two Goblins in the deck that lead to a win if you have them or can search for them: Battle Cry Goblin and Pashalik Mons. Both these creatures have abilities you can repeatedly activate. Beyond these, if you have a Den of the Bugbear in play you can attack with, it can also be activated repeatedly to turn infinite mana into infinite 1/1s.

Even without the combo, the deck can win simply by ramping into Muxus, Goblin Grandee, though I think most wins will come off the combo. That's why I have Goblin Warchief here over Goblin Chieftain, as being able to cast your Goblins for a mana less is going to make it easier to do everything you want in a single turn. I even threw in one copy of Munitions Expert as an upgrade to Gempalm Incinerator, especially in a Collected Company deck. I'm very interested to see how this deck plays out.

#5: Rakdos Arcanist

The last deck I want to talk about is Rakdos Arcanist. There are a few new cards from Historic Horizons that should contend for slots in this deck. At the same time, it is a flexible strategy, so there are a few different ways to build the deck. Here is the version that I would like to try:

I am presenting many new decks here without a sideboard, though definitely Davriel's Withering should be in there. This deck now includes Dragon's Rage Channeler, which should play nicely with what this deck is trying to do. Dragon's Rage Channeler will definitely have a big impact on the format, as pretty much all red aggressive decks should consider playing it.

Filling up the graveyard is still a primary part of the game plan, and the question becomes what the numbers of various cards in this deck should be. Young Pyromancer generates some tokens, which is pretty good alongside Village Rites. Getting to delirium is definitely a focus of the deck, so having Unholy Heat here as well makes some sense.

Some cuts do need to be made of course once you add new cards. I think Bone Shards will be better than Spark Harvest, but they are super similar so you are going to play one or the other. The tricky part about adding more creatures to the deck is that you can only play so many, as the deck needs instants and sorceries for cards like Dreadhorde Arcanist and Dragon's Rage Channeler. Some copies of Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger have been cut as a result, but I could see playing around with these choices more as the format evolves. This should be one of the top decks moving forward, as it was already pretty good before Historic Horizons.
