Creative Deck Archetype Archive

Want to find builds for almost all archetypes in one place?

Welcome!

Welcome to Quincymccoy’s personal Deck Archive, a compendium of a post including all profiles, articles, videos, and more that I’ve created, piloted, and/or used over the past 9 years here on the site, organized alphabetically by archetype name. Feel free to use this as a reference point if you are interested in seeing if I’ve ever covered an old archetype before… or if you want a jumping off point to build the deck yourself. This list is also meant to eventually record every major archetype/theme/strategy in the game, so if I missed something, please reach out so I may correct that.

Archetypes/themes are sorted by alphabetical order below, and for themes I’ve covered multiple times, I’ll link all past profiles that apply. This list was last updated on: September 25th, 2022

Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my primary role on the site is to generate non-news content! Let's keep the endless flood of profiles on undervalued archetypes flowing, shall we?
