    Upon getting into the Highlander format, I noticed that it is dominated by aggressive creature decks. Therefore, my immediate thought was to build a deck that beats up on aggressive strategies, and addresses combo by sideboarding a large number of hate cards. For the other control decks, my strategy was to gain inevitability by running a large number of recursive engines, which control decks generally have trouble dealing with. I also decided that I like lots of cards, and I’ve therefore factored in most of the good card draw and card advantage spells I could find: Ancestral Recall, Intuition, Gifts Ungiven, Fact or Fiction, and most recently Steam Augury.

    I present the result – “Your Choice” – UWRg Control

    This is not guaranteed to beat up on aggressive decks or beat combo decks, it is very much developing.
