There are so many formats of Magic: The Gathering, which means players can make anything they want out of the game. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with so many different formats constantly changing, so people tend to stick to the formats they like. I'm here today to talk to you about the rapidly growing format, Historic, and why you are wrong for not playing it!

The easiest way to explain Historic is essentially "Every card on MTG Arena, minus what is on the banned or suspended list." This essentially means that Historic begins with Ixalan and ends at the most recent Standard set. This format initially felt like "Standard+" and largely served no purpose after Pioneer was announced. However, many steps have been taken to make Historic feel like it truly has its own identity. This includes three "Historic Anthology" sets released on MTG Arena featuring powerful cards such as Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Burning-Tree Emissary and many more. 

Historic's identity is further developing past Pioneer with the upcoming addition of Jumpstart cards. Some cards in Jumpstart will be legal in Historic, bypassing other non-rotating formats like Modern and Pioneer completely. This has really hammered home the idea that Historic is a unique format, with properties unlike any other format, and I love it. 

I've been playing this format non-stop since Wizards of the Coast added Historic to the ladder system on MTGA. Why do I love it so much? First, it really feels like there is a deck for everyone. There are so many different archetypes that are viable in Historic, and a handful that haven't even been explored yet. Aggro, combo, control, midrange and ramp—the gang's all here. Let me introduce you to a couple of the most popular decks and show off a couple of other decks I enjoy in the format. 

The Top Decks

It's difficult to determine what the "best decks" are in a relatively new format without a lot of tournament data to draw from. However, based on popularity it is clear that Simic/Bant Nexus and Gruul Aggro are two fan favorites that have high win rates in Historic. 

Nexus of Fate

Nexus decks in Historic are just as powerful as the versions that left Standard last year. Recent additions like Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Mystical Dispute and Shark Typhoon only make the deck even more powerful. Whether you like the deck or not, you can't deny it is a powerhouse in this format.

I could write a whole article about the nuances and small tricks in each Nexus list, but for now I'll keep it brief. The deck utilizes Wilderness Reclamation to produce an excessive amount of mana and cast Nexus of Fate, while utilizing other cards like Tamiyo, Collector of Tales and Search for Azcanta to dig through the deck for more Nexus of Fates. With enough ways to dig through your library, taking infinite turns becomes almost guaranteed, and the Nexus player typically wins by attacking with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Brazen Borrower or Shark Typhoon during these infinite turn cycles.

Nexus decks are resilient, difficult to meaningfully interact with, and annoying to some (not me!). As much as I love Nexus of Fate decks, I am unsure the deck will remain legal in its current iteration forever, so use caution when spending your wildcards on Arena. That being said, if you like this type of deck, you will rank up quickly on the ladder, and I will always recommend playing Nexus of Fate.

Gruul Aggro

I think Gruul Aggro is the current best deck in Historic, but this might be heavily influenced by the presence of Nexus of Fate decks. Gruul has a good matchup against Nexus, largely because you put on a lot of pressure quickly and turn off their Root Snare with Questing Beast and Bonecrusher Giant.

Gruul is consistent, fast, and has a lot of "Gotcha!" moments thanks to Embercleave. If you like Aggro and like winning, Gruul is the perfect introduction to Historic. 

My Other Top Picks

While Nexus of Fate and Gruul Aggro decks are tried and tested decks, that doesn't mean that's all there is to the format. There are so many other decks you can play and succeed with, they just don't have as many people playing them yet.

Rakdos Sacrifice

This deck is pretty similar to the Standard version of the deck, only with Fanatical Firebrand and a better manabase. Even with the companion nerf, this deck relies heavily on Lurrus of the Dream-Den, which is supported by Call of the Death-Dweller.

I enjoy this deck because it can be aggressive or shift into a grindy late-game. Rakdos Sacrifice is adaptable to numerous metas, does alright against Nexus and Gruul, and who doesn't love a good cat/oven combo? I'm not biased, I swear.

Mono-Blue Tempo

I hate playing against this deck, but boy do I love playing it. Mono-Blue Tempo was popularized in Standard by Autumn Burchett when they won Mythic Championship I with the archetype, but largely fell out of favor in Standard after the printing of Shifting Ceratops.

I've found the deck to be especially powerful in Historic, largely due to how good the Nexus matchups are. It's really difficult for the Nexus player to get anything done when you have an answer for everything they play, while putting on pressure with one or two little creatures. Some Mono-Blue innovators have started splashing black in the deck for sideboard cards—specifically for Shifting Ceratops. These cards include Heartless Act and Noxious Grasp. You can even add an Eliminate in there for problematic Teferi, Time Raveler

Simic Ramp

Simic Ramp was the first deck I made it to Mythic in Historic with, and the first Historic deck I built from the ground up. Ramp strategies were already powerful in Standard with Growth Spiral and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, and then Cultivate and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon were reprinted. This inspired many people to play both in Standard, while I wanted to create something similar in Historic, where you also get access to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

This deck has been extremely fast and consistent,  although it's somewhat weak interaction and Nexus of Fate. Even so, I think this is a great proactive strategy and still recommend it for people who like big mana. 

Honorable Mentions

"Why should I play Historic if there aren't any tournaments?"

There are tournaments! A couple of individuals and companies have been hosting MTGA tournaments through MTGMelee to scratch that competitive itch many Historic players have. That also gives me hope that when paper tournaments can be run again, some tournament organizers will test out Historic paper events as well. You could even recommend to your local game store that they offer Historic events during the week or for FNM. 

The popularity of Historic is only increasing, and it is honestly the most fun I've had in Magic in a while. I recommend this format to everyone—because there is a deck for everyone! No matter which deck you choose, you can't go wrong queuing up some games in this awesome format.
