Nils here. I Just saw this threat while looking for the Last mgm's decklists. If you want the state of the art scapeshift list, i would advocate for taking tobis 5c list from the Last mgm as a starting Point. The 5th color fixes the fundamental Problem of the Deck which was the number of Bad Mountains you Had to play (cinder glade, smoldering Marsh etc.) It is a list we worked on for a while now. Takeaway from the Last tournament would probably be to cut a Land and add a sylvan library. Otherwise i am pretty convinced that 5c ist the way to go regarding scapeshift.

Patience, guys. Smiley Tomorrow is the Mind Game Mages tournament in Berlin and I am pretty sure Nils will be there and play his Scapeshift deck (Result thread ~ sunday/ monday). If not I ask him to upload and post it here.

In October 2019 Berlin guy Nils won three FNMs with his Scapeshift (Field of the Damned) built.
Not sure if there is his decklist somewhere available.

Hi there, is it possible to get the decklist from Nils and upload or post it somewhere please?

Thx in advance

Thanks for your opinion.
Actually I was thinking kind of the same things:

I am flirting with Temur and Bant in a Tempo/Midrange Build.
I am unsure that Midrange is the place to be against mostly Tempo and Control Strategies. You might have game against everythin but it is always more like a coin flip.

Are there any opinions on what archetypes are good vs Elfball or Goblin-Highlander (Swarm with Tokens, Combo into Craterhoof etc or addition Goblins burn opponent out respectively flood board out of nowwhere and attack/Sac for lethal)?

I think a more controlling build would be a good option. Am I wrong?

Think so. I've made some testsessions before Halle and Scapeshift was a solid Option.

I face a similar problem atm.

I tested GB-Rock, GWB-Mid and Rock, Jeskai and 4c Blood in my 2 years playing this format and watched countless people play various decks.
Nothing seemed to fit for me.

I have noticed that you did not try Bant-Mid.

I am building a version myself atm and it seems to be what fixes my problem.

Bant can be very interactive, agressive, comboy and even controly/tempoy.

The new prints of cards like Oko or Questing Beast and even the new Heliod work pretty well in Bant mid.

The continental showed that GWu can be a pretty good contender for the TOP 8 in various forms.

We saw staxy bant, aggroy bant, midrangy bant.

I do think that a midrange version of bant is pretty strong atm.

Value cards, interaction(counterspells), combo-material (Heliod, Walking Balista, Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder (works with heliod too) and good tutors for it. You can even try scapeshift with Field of the Dead and Dark Depth stuff. Bant is a playground atm that wants to be tested in my oppinion Smiley

Hope that helped a litte.

I will follow this threat closely. Maybe someone with more experience can help me out too.

Dear Highlander-Community,

I am following the board almost a decade by now (phew i am getting old -.-)

Anyway I am struggling with Deck selection for my favorite format: European Highlander.

What did I try so far:
  • Naya Zoo (2008-2010)
  • Mono U Artifact Control (2009-2013)
  • GWB Rock (2009-2013)
  • Orzhov Lifegain/Discard (2010-2012
  • Naya Tokens (2014-2019)
  • Sultai Reanimator (2019)
  • Jeskai Tempo (2019)
  • Temur Midrange (2019)
  • GWB Pattern Rector (2019)
These decks were either fun decks without competitive effort or are outclassed by other decks (4Color Blood > Zoo) or are to slow with their combo (f.e. GWB Pattern Rector).

I am not really happy respectively long-lasting interested in tweaking, fixing and optimizing any of these.
While following the I have the feeling most of the decklists of unpopular archetypes are outdated.

Is there anything like an general archetype overview/metagame Breakdown besides the yearly Continental Cup?

Maybe I am looking for an "Eierlegende Wollmilch Sau" (~Jack of all trades) but I am searching for a fun Highlander which supports interactive play (not restricted to discard or counter), includes G-in its mana base and plays something inbetween aggro and midrange ultimately with some little combos or even a chance of luck combo-like finish (f.e. 1-off without much tutoring strong anyway but combo-finish possible).

Does the Swarm have any ideas?
(I am not looking for Decklists more than ideas for archetypes)

Thanks in advance

Is Scapeshift still a viable option for Tournament play or outclassed by other combo strategies respectively not fast enough vs fast aggro decks.
I was wondering cause it did not make any major appeareances in a couple of months.
