Deck of the Week: Affinity

Hey y’all, Happy Halloween! For our deck for this week, we’ll take a look at the top Extended format decks at the current Pro Tour Berlin. The new Extended is said to be more on the aggressive side.

Favorite aggro decks got some updates with the release of Shards of Alara. One of them that got the most benefits from Shards is Affinity, with the addition of artifact lord, Master of Etherium and Ethersworn Canonist which limits the spells of non-artifact decks. Also additions to the Affinity deck are the cards Salvage Titan, a threat that can get in play early or can be a late game bomb, and Soul’s Fire, which when combined with Cranial Plating is a great finisher dealing enormous Fling like damage.

Here’s a version made by Gerry Thompson.
