Now, while I’m not from Britain, I can still appreciate the deck building of other countries, especially when the deck that won Great Britain’s standard Nationals was Daniel Royde’s Eldrazi Ramp deck, which even Wizards describes as an “Unusual Choice”. You can find the deck list along with its competitors here.

This is quite an interesting list. This was in top 8 alongside 2 Cawblade, 2 Red Deck Wins, 1 Blue/Black Control, 1 Green/Blue Aggro and 1 Vampire deck.

In all honesty, this deck kinda just floors me. I’m amazed that the deck was able to do as well as it did in this format with Cawblade controlling most of the format and RDW up and swinging turn one with Goblin Guide.

However, this deck proves that Cawblade isn’t the unbeatable menace people think it is.
