Daily Digest: Who Needs Three Colors?

The first Open Series weekend has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over! See how one Top 8 competitor ignored the Khans constraints all along and was given a great tournament run as a result!

There’s no argument that playing three colors allows you to do powerful things. With both Opens this weekend being taken down by three-color decks, you
have to question why you’d do anything other than just play the best cards.

David Fulk decided he didn’t need a third color. Instead, he stuck with just R/W and was rewarded with a well-earned Top 8 finish. His deck looks solid,
consistent, and powerful, and if that’s the case, then why do you need a third color?

I like this deck because it’s proactive, has great threats, and unconditional removal for all your opponents’ threats. There are major downsides to playing
Chained to the Rocks and Banishing Light if your opponents have enchantment removal though.

What do you guys think? In the case of Fulk’s deck, third color or no?
