    PRIMER: CALL OF DT: BLACK OBS

    This Mono Black Control list was developed by Sarven McLinton (me) as a budget control list. It was interesting that there were no real options for new players to play dedicated control decks without breaking the bank on dual lands or Power, so I tested a list in the local meta that could employ all the typical control elements but without a Blue shell. Here is a video primer:

    Since its creation, Call of DT has seen quite a bit of play in SA but hasn’t made any Top 8’s (hence it remains a Developing archetype). So if you’re on a budget and want to play control, please sleeve this up and keep developing it further, and contact me with your current incarnation of the list! Note that since its creation Mind Twist has increased in pointing, meaning you need to switch Strip Mine out for Wasteland (but otherwise the effect is largely the same). S.
