Daily Digest: Pure Modern Control

There is a strong tradition of control decks that is currently in jeopardy across several formats. Maybe it just takes the right list to turn that around. A Daily Digest favorite returns with a suggestion for #SCGNJ and #SCGINDY’s $5,000 Premier IQ!

Control is a pretty loosely used term these days, typically meant to describe a deck that controls the early game before switching gears and becoming the beatdown. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a real control deck.

Truthfully, this deck might turn the corner quicker than I’m imagining due to the manlands and Snapcaster Mages, but I don’t think anyone can argue that this is about as close to a pure control deck as we’re going to get in Modern.
