Planar Chaos Theme Decks


Endless March

The letter F!or the creatures in the “Endless March” deck, the battle never ends—and they wouldn’t have it any other way. This deck revolves around the interaction of vanishing and “rescue.” It’s an ideal match: When a vanishing creature gets low on time counters, play a rescue creature and return it to your hand. You can replay it fully restocked with time counters!

Your rescue creatures do more than return your Calciderms to your hand. If you rescue Mogg War Marshal, you’ll get another Goblin token when you replay it. If you rescue Icatian Javelineers, it’ll come back with a fresh javelin counter. A rescue creature with flash can save a creature after combat damage has been assigned, or after it’s been targeted by a spell that will destroy it.

Don’t be afraid to rescue your own rescue creatures! If you play Dust Elemental, you can return Dust Elemental itself plus two of your other creatures to your hand. Now Dust Elemental is ready for more rescuing, and the other creatures are ready to come back into play, good as new.

Ixidor's Legacy

The letter I!xidor was the master illusionist who created morph magic, and his legacy is one of trickery and deceit. While playing the “Ixidor’s Legacy” deck, you’ll pick up right where he left off.

Shapeshifting is this deck’s specialty. Your face-down creatures do it. Your Shapeshifters do it. Cards like Unstable Mutation or Shaper Parasite do it. But the real fun is when you shift the shape of your opponent’s creatures! Shaper Parasite can drop a small creature’s toughness to 0, spelling its immediate doom. Even better, Serendib Sorcerer and Merfolk Thaumaturgist can team up to turn any creature into a not-long-for-this-world 2/0.

After you’ve dealt with your opponent’s threats, it’s time to finish the game with some threats of your own. Tidewalker isn’t very stable, but it can be gigantic. How big Aeon Chronicler is depends on your hand size, which means it can also be huge—and if it’s getting too small, you can play Ovinomancer or turn Fathom Seer face up to put a bunch of cards in your hand. As Ixidor’s heir, you’ll always have another trick up your sleeve!

Rituals of Rebirth

The letter S!ome view death as a door into another world. The “Rituals of Rebirth” deck views death as a revolving door that leads right back onto the battlefield!

Early in the game, drop giant creature cards into your graveyard with cards like Icatian Crier, Fa’adiyah Seer, and Greenseeker. Then play Resurrection or Dread Return to put a gargantuan attacker from your graveyard directly into play. Teneb, the Harvester is your best bet: Not only is it a 6/6 flying Dragon, but it’ll reanimate more of your creatures as it takes huge chunks out of your opponent’s life total. If you haven’t gotten Teneb into your graveyard yet, you have plenty of other options, like Phantasmagorian or Jedit Ojanen of Efrava. Your opponent will have a hard time dealing them with on turn 4!

As the game goes along, you’ll accumulate so much land that you can simply play any of your giant creatures from your hand, which means Evolution Charm becomes useful as a resurrection spell as well. When your creatures won’t stay dead, who can stand in your way?

Unraveling Mind

The letter E!ver wished you could control time? While playing the “Suspended Sentence” deck, you’ll use suspend, vanishing, and cards that manipulate time counters to knock the timestream on its ear!

The most important card in the deck is Paradox Haze. Giving yourself two upkeeps a turn means you’ll pull time counters off your suspended cards twice as fast. This is especially good for your Reality Strobe and Festering March, which re-suspend themselves each time you play them.

The other crucial card is Reality Acid. It’s fine if you wait three turns, remove the last time counter, and get rid of the enchanted permanent. But it’s amazing if you use your many bounce effects, including Reality Strobe, Dream Stalker, and Riftwing Cloudskate, to return Reality Acid to your hand. The enchanted permanent will be sacrificed, and you get to enchant a new permanent.

Once you’ve taken control of the game by removing all your opponent’s threats, your powerful evasion creatures, including Nihilith and Infiltrator il-Kor, will make sure you have no trouble putting the game away!
