This week, we are heading back to Standard for one of the most unique decks in the format: Mono-Blue Storm! Normally on Budget Magic, we play decks that I brew myself, but every once in a while, a spicy budget-friendly build posts a finish somewhere, which leads to it sneaking onto the series. This is one of those cases, with the deck originally being played to a 5-0 finish in a Magic Online league by Jackomatrus, so congrats to him on a super-sweet and budget-friendly build!
The basic idea of Mono-Blue Storm is simple: we play a bunch of cheap (and even free) artifacts, draw a bunch of cards, eventually bounce all of our cheap artifacts back to our hand and recast them, ideally with an Aetherflux Reservoir on the battlefield to gain a bunch of life, and eventually kill our opponent by sending 50 damage to their face! Can the plan actually work in Standard? Let’s get to the videos and find out; then, we’ll talk more about the deck!
