Recent Magic releases have pushed the limit of how powerful cards can be. The most egregious of these cards have literally rewritten the rules of the game, like War of the Spark's planeswalkers with passive abilities, and companions from Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths.

Yet even more extreme are the new modal double-faced cards (MDFCs) from Zendikar Rising, which will be recorded in history as the legacy of this latest set. Last week I included these cards in my analysis of how the set has impacted formats beyond Standard, but since then they've skyrocketed to prominence and the top of the metagame in both Modern and Pioneer.

Another Set, Another Broken Mechanic

Shatterskull Smashing // Shatterskull, the Hammer Pass

As spells that can be played as lands but don't count as such, the MDFCs break cards like Goblin Charbelcher, Balustrade Spy, and Undercity Informer. Previously, there've been no-land strategies based around these cards, which are essentially one-card combos, but they were gimmicky at best. They were also limited to Legacy, with its alternatives to lands like Chrome Mox and Lotus Petal, and where there was stiff competition and plenty of tools (like Force of Will) to contain them. Now the MDFCs open these strategies to the whole new worlds of Modern and even Pioneer, and they're taking full advantage of the opportunity.

Last weekend these, "Oops, All Spells" decks broke out—a Goblin Charbelcher deck Top 8ed a Modern Challenge—but it was Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer, which do their job for just four mana compared to the seven of Goblin Charbelcher, that truly impressed. A deck built around them took second in a Modern Challenge, announcing itself as a legitimate strategy in the format.

More remarkable has been its arrival in Pioneer, where it took ninth place in Saturday's Challenge followed by two Top 8 spots the next day. Pioneer had recently become a fair place devoid of combo decks compared to where it was just a few months ago before multiple bans, but this new strategy threatens to completely upend the metagame.

Today I'll take a deeper look at these decks, explain how they work, and explore their card choices. Even if you don't want to use them to crush opponents, you should prepare yourself to battle against them, because the era of the Oops, All Spells deck has arrived.

How Does It Work?

In a deck with no lands, when you play Balustrade Spy or activate Undercity Informer activated on yourself, you will mill your entire deck. This acts like Dredge on steroids, and will immediately unlock a full deck's worth of value from the graveyard. Creeping Chill will nearly kill the opponent itself, but it does need help. The Modern version of the deck finishes the job with a convoluted, but ingenious process.

Buy This Card! https://shop.tcgplayer.com/magic/double-masters/vengevine

After milling the deck, Narcomoeba triggers multiple Sword of the Meek to return to play, but it's not too interested in attacking, and there are no Thopter Foundry shenanigans here. Instead, they're perfect artifact fodder to be sacrificed to play Salvage Titan—first returned to hand by exiling some of the Pentad Prism or Talisman of Resilience the deck includes as acceleration. Salvage Titan fills in as a clever way to trigger Vengevine as the second creature cast (Balustrade Spy or Undercity Informer being the first).

Between a set of Vengevine attacking and damage from Creeping Chill, there's a good chance the opponent will die outright. But in case they don't, the deck plays a Nexus of Fate to prevent decking and ensure another turn of attacks, at which point Salvage Titan and Narcomoeba can join. If this still isn't enough, there's the potential to get another turn by discarding the drawn Nexus of Fate to Phantasmagorian—a copy of which rounds out the graveyard package to ensure no important pieces get stuck in hand.

Agadeem's Awakening // Agadeem, the Undercrypt

Pelakka Predation // Pelakka Caverns

Beyond some nice optional tech in Leyline of Sanctity and a miser's Pact of Negation, the rest of the deck is filled out by mana sources, including a ton of MDFCs. Most of these are really only functional as lands, but some of them add valuable utility. Agadeem's Awakening // Agadeem, the Undercrypt, however hard to cast it may be, has potential for reanimating the enablers, and Pelakka Predation // Pelakka Caverns is a nice three-mana discard spell on curve before the four-mana combo pieces.

With 20 MDFCs acting as lands, the deck can play a normal game of Magic. It doesn't require going "all-in" with rituals like a Legacy Goblin Charbelcher deck, but can fight through countermagic with multiple chances to resolve one of its enablers. At worst, it can even use them to hardcast threats like Vengevine and win through graveyard hosers the hard way.

It all adds up to a brilliant and effective deck. As a true one-card combo deck, but with the redundancy of eight enablers, it brings incredible consistency to the table—and a potential turn-three kill. This makes it a legitimate contender in Modern, where it has all the tools it needs to race the fastest decks or fight through the most disruptive of opponents.

The Pioneer Version

The "Oops, All Spells" strategy is especially startling in Pioneer, where there are fewer tools for assembling a kill from the graveyard, but more than enough to beat the relatively weaker decks in the format. The strategy is still early in development—there are some differences in the finer details of the decklists out there, but the core of the deck is the same. Here's the highest-finishing Challenge list:

Without Vengevine the deck lacks the ability to win immediately the turn it mills itself, but Prized Amalgam fills in as another significant threat from the graveyard. Unlike the convoluted process the Modern deck uses to trigger Vengevine, in Pioneer Prized Amalgam is seamlessly enabled by Silversmote Ghoul, which itself is triggered by Creeping Chill. Together they'll put more than enough power in play to kill the opponent the following turn.

Nexus of Fate is banned, but Worldspine Wurm fills in the same role of preventing decking and providing a final turn to kill. With an immediate kill impossible in Pioneer, the Worldspine Wurm is critical, so some lists like the one I've shared use two. Pioneer lacks Phantasmagorian to discard any pieces drawn, but instead turns to Haunted Dead as an alternative outlet, which also doubles as a way to trigger Prized Amalgam to help the deck further grind if necessary.

As far as particular lists, I'm intrigued by this one from __matsugan, the pilot of the second-place Modern list. They have a long and successful history of developing these sort of combo decks, most recently the Neoform deck they helped popularize.

Beating Oops, All Spells

The Oops, All Spells strategy relies on the graveyard like Dredge decks, but doesn't have the same resilience to disruption. Where Dredge just needs to get a Dredge card into the graveyard, this strategy requires actually resolving one of its enablers. It's closer to a typical combo deck, which means it's vulnerable to countermagic and discard.

That's why __matusgan includes Leyline of Sanctity in both formats, as a way to cut off discard spells, leavings countermagic as the best option. Beyond Pelakka Predation, other builds turn to Jwari Disruption and Thoughtseize as protection against countermagic. Otherwise the deck will simply power through countermagic with its eight enablers, and even Agadeem's Awakening is capable of getting the job done by reanimating one of the enablers. In some lists, Bala Ged Recovery adds further resiliency.

With plenty of protection and redundancy against disruption, the very best way to contain Oops, All Spells is graveyard hate. Because the deck mills itself in a single shot, anything that deals with the graveyard will do, from Leyline of the Void down to Tormod's Crypt. The deck can't power through one-shot effects like Dredge can, and will have to fight fair with creatures—an uphill battle—or turn to sideboard options of its own.

Like Dredge, the Oops, All Spells sideboards include cards like Assassin's Trophy, Nature's Claim, or Natural State to deal with graveyard hosers, so don't count on winning just because you draw one against them.

The deck also has the ability to completely sidestep graveyard hosers with the creative sideboarding of Goblin Charbelcher or Thassa's Oracle. In the case of Goblin Charbelcher in Modern, it can simply kill the opponent as an alternate one-card win condition that doesn't use the graveyard at all. In the case of Thassa's Oracle in Pioneer, it can be played after milling the deck without relying on the graveyard to win. These cards also have the benefit of getting around using creatures in combat, and are generally excellent technology that will beat all sorts of things opponents might try to do to stop the deck.

Goblin Charbelcher: A Modern Alternative

With Oops, All Spells being vulnerable to graveyard hosers, one way to avoid the issue is to instead focus on Goblin Charbelcher. This strategy is similar to the deck formerly popular in Legacy, and now has a Challenge Top 8 to its name after a near-miss ninth place the week prior.

Compared to the black-based version with eight enablers, this version only has four Goblin Charbelcher as its sole way to win. On the plus side, it can use Recross the Paths to completely stack the order of its deck, which functions like four more copies and should make winning pretty straightforward over the following turns—especially as it can also set up mana rituals and protection like Veil of Summer or Defense Grid. The deck also makes good use of Bala Ged Recovery as a mana source and backup spell, and gains Valakut Awakening // Valakut Stoneforge and Spikefield Hazard // Spikefield Cave as very functional MDFCs. The ability to support Blood Moon as a sort of alternate win against some opponents is another powerful aspect.

The deck also includes a unique alternative kill of its own in the sideboard. With Recross the Paths stacking the deck, it can set up Collected Company for Undercity Informer to mill the deck and Thassa's Oracle for a kill! It's a clever option against anyone who might be able to fight back against Goblin Charbelcher with any variety of hosers, like Pithing Needle or Leyline of Sanctity, and is just a nice option to have for very little space.

With its ability to ignore graveyard hosers, and with access to Veil of Summer, which stops both the discard and the countermagic that plague the black version, there's a lot to be said for the Goblin Charbelcher version of the Oops, All Spells strategy in Modern.

Oops, All Spells in Legacy

The Oops, All Spells Balustrade Spy deck already existed in Legacy as a very fringe strategy, but the MDFCs are a big boost that could potentially make it a real contender. Last weekend it reached the Top 16 of a Legacy Challenge, and I'd bet it will break through eventually.

In Legacy, the kill condition is straightforward with Narcomoeba enabling Dread Return for Thassa's Oracle and a clean kill. The Legacy version benefits from access to blue card selection like Brainstorm, along with Force of Will to protect its combo or to stop the opponent.

The Future of Oops, All Spells

No matter the format or particular version of the strategy, Oops, All Spells is making a real impact on Magic.

Zendikar Rising's modal double-faced cards break the rules of the game, and it's no surprise there are decks taking advantage. They've already found some very real success, and this is just the beginning. Surely opponents will find ways to fight back, but the deck will evolve right along with them. At this point I'm cautiously optimistic they'll become a reasonable part of the metagame, but there's a chance they'll demand yet another ban on top of many we've seen recently, especially in the case of Pioneer.

Until then, play them or be ready to beat them.
