Oathbreaker Starter Decks: Build Your Own Battlebox

Question: What happens when you tell one of the creators of Oathbreaker about Project Oathbuilder? What happens if this creator happens to have 10 years of singleton brewing experience, loves Magic lore, is part of the Oathbreaker Rules Committee, and lives and breathes the format?

Answer: You get 5 beautifully made mono-colored Oathbreaker decks, all checking in at under $20. What’s even better is that they play well together! You can take any one of these and have fun with your playgroup, or you can build all 5 and take them with you everywhere you go, having a set of well-matched decks you can use to introduce anyone and everyone to this fantastic format.

Each of these deck feature incredible flavor, only two rares, and are budget friendly. You can play them just as they are, but they have room to customize and grow as your Oathbreaker experience continues. Without any further ado, I present Josh and his battle box of Teyo, Narset, Davriel, Tibalt, and Jiang Yanggu.

Teyo’s Hour of Reckoning: Teyo the Shieldmage []//Hour of Reckoning []

Teyo, the Shield Mage and a plethora of other token creating cards help you control the board. You will use your rag tag gang of tokens to reduce the cost of the Signature Spell, clear your opponents’ battlefield, and still have your tokens charging face first into your enemies.
