    WOW! There have been so many Oathbreaker decklists flying around the internet recently that it’s almost impossible to catch ’em all. You have inspired us! Let’s get a bunch of those list here. If you’ve made one, and it fits the criteria below, could you do us a favor and grab the link and send it over?

    Mission: To expand the love and popularity of Oathbreaker by creating a database of entry level (low cost) decks that are fun to play and powerful enough to hold their own at their first Oathbreaker game.

    Criteria: The deck may fall into one of two categories. Starter (Under $30) or Budget (Under $100).

    Please posts your decks in this forum with the subject “POB–Deck Title: Oathbreaker//Signature Spell”.

    Post in the following format

    Deck: Deck Title: Oathbreaker//Signature Spell
    Category: starter or budget
    Designer: optional
    Deck List: (either list out the cards or provide a link to whatever deck building site you prefer*)
    Deck Tech: Optional, but we would greatly appreciate a blurb about the deck. Let us know some of the best interactions and strategies. What are the tips to succeeding with this deck? Has it been playtested or is a concept deck? Why should players choose this deck over any other options in the list?
    Video/Article: If you made a video or wrote an article about this deck, link it!

    * such as  http://www.mtgoldfish.com (now has Oathbreaker/Signature Spell support)  http://www.tappedout.net , http://www.deckedbuilder.com, deckstats.net/deckbuilder 

    This is just the beginning. I’m hoping to turn this project it into a way to

    • make use of all those bulk cards taking up spaces in closets and bedroom floors
    • bring more people into the format
    • raise money for the http://www.magikids.org charity
    • expand the idea that Magic can be Social, Generous, and Inclusive.

    If you respond to a thread or deck idea, please keep those three tenants in mind.

    Deck: Werewolf Counters– Arlinn, Voice of the Pack//Waxing Moon
    Category: starter
    Designer: Linkguy137
    Deck List: https://deckstats.net/decks/122301/1299950-werewolf-1-counters
    Deck Tech: This deck is a werewolf tribal deck based around fight and +1 counters. It’s extremely on theme for anyone that loves werewolves. You could use Waxing Moon, Inspiring Call, or any of the fight spells as the Signature Spell. You could also switch up the Oathbreaker to Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

    Deck:  Nahiri, storm of stone/ / magnetic theft

    Category:  budget

    Designer:  mtgsyko82

    Deck list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1933716#paper

    Deck tech:   This is a low to the ground agro build. The main focus of this deck is to try and put out creatures that have value when targeted by your equipment. Nahiri reduces the equip cost while magnetic theft bypasses it entirely.  Throw tons of equipment on your creatures and swing for big damage.  Enchantment auras help slow your opponent while creatures like tenth district legionnaire and Valduk, keeper of the flame put the pressure on.

    Deck: Saheeli’s Epic Experiment- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer/Epic Experiment
    Category: Budget
    Designer: NS_Savage
    Deck List: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/saheelis-epic-experiment/
    Deck Tech: Play cantrip into cantrip amassing (not the mechanic) an army and drawing out your deck. Your wincons in the deck are Guttersnipe , Impact Tremors , Teleportal , Electrostatic Field and Niv-Mizzet, Parun. The main objective of this deck is to get out as many of your token generators as possible before you start dropping your cantrips to draw cards or deal some damage and create a bunch of tokens. You Can win via combat damage by making a ton of tokens and casting an overloaded Teleportal to beef up their damage and make them unblockable, you can also win by playing a bunch of cantrips while guttersnipe or electrostatic field is on board to ping everyone down, another way to win is to get impact tremors online before creating your army and then every time you cast a cantrip it deals damage to everyone and you can even win with just drawing cards if you have Niv-Mizzet out (although it’s arguably the most difficult way). Anyways I hope ya’ll will like this deck as much as I liked building it!

    Deck: Two Nissas; Two Growths – Nissa, Voice of Zendikar // Inspiring Call

    Category: Starter

    Designer: ajjagecko and inspiration from Lil_Frie_MTG’s list (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1930969#paper )

    Deck List: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1934410#paper

    Deck Tech: Ramp with Nissa! The goal is to either ramp up to Nissa, Voice of Zendikar to -2, then proliferate and add massive amounts of counters. If the game goes long, heavy hitters like Nissa, Worldwaker, Hero’s Bane, Oran-Rief Hydra, Genesis Hydra, and Avenger of Zendikar lead to an explosive ending full of powerful hitters. You will win from combat damage. Some upgrades would be more War of the Spark proliferate cards, as I only used my current draft bulk and picked up Evolution Sage for the deck. Birds of Paradise also make a better mana dork, but is admittedly expensive compared to other dorks. Hangarback Walker is also a great upgrade, as it makes a big hitter, that, if it’s killed, spawns an entire army. Planewide Celebration and Courage in Crisis also are great, cheap proliferate cards. The main benefit of this list is how cheap it is, but the deck could be more fine tuned as it was only based on what I already owned.

    Deck: Nicol Bolas Flavor Town – Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God // The Elderspell

    Category: Budget (~$60)

    Designer: Myself, Keaton_Wainer

    Deck List: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/nicol-bolas-flavor-town-1/

    Deck Tech: Have you ever wanted to achieve ultimate power at your play group? Does seeing 11 different versions of Jace grind your gears? Well now you can spice up Ravnica with your very own army of unstoppable warriors. This deck’s strategy is to use your low cost creatures as fodder as you amass towards 7 mana to drop your Dragon-God and Elderspell for an instant win. Deceive the other players in to believing you are harmless. Let them play their planeswalkers and machinate their demise. Should our mighty God-Pharaoh be brought low by an annoying counterspell, you have thematic late game spells to achieve victory.
    (I built this with flavor in mind while still picking some Grixis good stuff. In testing, the mana base needs fixing as there are too few and too slow.

    Deck: My Dreams, Your Nightmares: Ashiok, Dream Render//Glimpse the Unthinkable

    Category: Budget

    Designer: Dorotheus

    Deck List: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/my-dreams-your-nightmares ($79 according to tappedout)

    Deck Tech: Out-tempo other players and force them to mill as much as you can, and then just exile it all. Don’t be fooled by people playing shuffle effects! Just Exile them instead with your choice of anti-graveyard artifacts. The best part about this budget build is that it has plenty of room for upgrades with thinks like Thrumming Stone for Persistent Petitioners and Leyline of the Void to make sure those pesky cards go straight to exile! Includes Mindcrank with Duskmantle Guildmage combo to mill 1 entire library at a time if you can set it up. Fully functional budget Oathbreaker Mill.

    Deck: Mono Red Aggro : Jaya, Venerated Firemage// Relentless Assault

    Category: Budget

    Designer: DanTheMan3593

    Deck List: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jaya-venerated-goblin-keeper/

    Deck Tech: Here’s a very budget friendly mono-red list that is aggro in nature, but can go off as a token deck once things get going with Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin and the Oathbreaker spell of the deck, Relentless Assault. Once Krenko’s power is high enough, you can sac the tokens made to Skirk Prospector to have a ton of combat steps, hopefully enough to finish out the game. I chose Jaya, Venerated Firemage for her static ability giving an anthem-type effect to all of my red spells.

    We also have these from Aqveteig , not in the approved format above, but feel free to check them out. The following is Aqveteig’s post from reddit that they authorized for reposting here:
    First two budget decks that I made for two upcoming birthday (untested)


    Then a set of 4 decks to play archenemy (first testing tomorrow). Only the Archenemy deck (bolas) is at full power as I tried to balance it for 1vs3 and have some supportive interactions between the allied decks. Something you generally don’t find when each deck needs to be a standalone. The bolas decks will probably serve as my main deck that I will play in multiplayer if the format picks up around here.

    Deck: Angry Angrath – Angrath, the Flame-Chained//Dark Deal

    Category: Budget

    Designer: StarchDornan

    Decklist: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/angry-angrath-2/

    Deck Tech: This deck wants to play a lot like a Nekusar deck in EDH in which everyone draws and discards a bunch of cards, but for each card your opponents draw/discard, they have to lose life for it. Angrath is the Oathbreaker mainly because of his plus and ult. Making your opponents discard and lose life on a plus ability is great for this deck and putting cards in the graveyard is not an issue with this kind of strategy, so it is quite possible to just snipe everyone out of the game with his ult, especially when you have a signature spell like Dark Deal, which will just start to fill up the graveyard quite quickly once Angrath hits the board. This deck is specifically for players that love denying their opponents’ resources and/or just straight burning them out. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to playtest this deck, so if anyone builds this and tries it out, I would love to know how it went.

    Deck: Burnt Alive- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer//Battle Hymn

    Category: Budget

    Decklist: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/burnt-alive-2/?cb=1558833794

    Deck Tech: This deck aims to race past your opponent in both card advantage, selection, and raw mana. We spend the first few turns using draw power to setup saheeli. Once we have established our commander is in play, we can begin to storm off with ritual effects, each one generating a servo, generating mana, and allowing us to make more with the use of battle hymn. From here we can then use cantrips in red to continue to push the chain, netting more creatures and more mana with a second casting of hymn. Should we hit empty the warrens we go into the absolute redzone. Our key pieces to winning are primarily Banefire, Burn at the Stake, and Grapeshot. While we can just win through sheer number of 1/1 creatures, it is easier to just end their misery. It is extremely budget oriented and as I try with most of the decks which will appear in our articles, have pieces within that can be traded or easily slotted into other ideas should you decide to not run the deck anymore. Best of wishes and I look forward to seeing you play!

    Deck: The Token Majority – Dovin, Grand Arbiter//Depose/Deploy

    Category: Starter

    Designer: NayrSlayer

    Decklist: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1943736#paper

    Deck Tech: A great deck for anyone wanting to play a token strategy in Oathbreaker. The goal is quite simple, make as many tokens as we can and swing with them in order to race down our opponents. Also, if you use Dovin’s +1 ability and connect with a ton of tokens, we have a great way to refill our hand potentially several times. The biggest fear with this deck is a boardwipe once we have an army of tokens, so we play a few token generating spells like Finale of Glory and White Sun’s Zenith as well as Oketra and Ephara as indestructible cards that can help us rebuild in a big way. An important note is that you can replace Depose/Deploy with a wide variety of spells, depending on what you want the deck to focus more on. The biggest one I would suggest is Hour of Reckoning since you can deal with the increased cost with convoke and can act as an almost one sided boardwipe. If you are looking for some upgrades to this deck, the two cards I would consider adding are Anointed Procession [] and Divine Visitation []since making twice the amount of tokens and making every token an Angel can take this deck to completely new heights. Best of luck to anyone who decides to take this deck for a spin!

    Deck: Tibalt Oathbreaker Phoenix – Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded/Fiery Confluence

    Category: Budget

    Designer: drwillsey

    Decklist; https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tibalt-oathbreaker-phoenix/

    Deck Tech: It’s all about taking advantage of Tibalt’s +1 ability. There’s much less of a downside to pitching cards that can be played from the graveyard or return to the battlefield. Lots of Phoenixes and burn spells here. And, eventually, you get to use Tibalt’s minus abilities to deal damage to your opponents or steal all their creatures. I went with Fiery Confluence as the signature spell for flexibility, and possible use as a finisher.
