Information

FEBRUARY 2020, EoE Early Meta

+4 Torch
+4 Cen Wastes Smuggler
+2 Eremot's Designs
+2 Stormhalt Knife
+3 Seat of Glory
+1 Fire Sigil

-4 Hidden Road Smuggler
-3 Defiance
-3 Slay
-1 Suffocate
-1 Annihilate
-2 Seat of Chaos
-1 Shadow Sigil
-1 Crest of Vengeance

MARKET

+1 Light the Fuse
+1 Cauldron Cookbook
+1 Bore
+1 Statuary Maiden
+1 Deepforged Plate

-1 Adjudicator's Gavel
-1 Stormhalt Knife
-1 Pristine Light
-1 Svetya, Merciful Orene
-1 Regent's Tomb

Torch is still too good not to be played so it comes back in the 75 main deck while I added Eremot's Designs for aggro decks plus what seems to be the new public enemy No. 1, Even Elysian.
I also swapped Hidden Road Smuggler for Cen Wastes Smuggler in order to have full access to a Fire Market.
This is due to Light the Fuse being in the Market to target even more Even Elysian thanks to the 5 cc1 Firebomb that will stop Evenhanded Golem to draw cards. The other cards in the Market are Statuary Maiden as Void hate, Cauldron Book as draw engine, Bore vs Relics and Deepforged Plate as all around card.
Finally having a Fire Market means no Stormhalt Knife in the Market which is sad, so I replaced 2 Slay for 2 Knifes main deck because the latter is just too strong in many situations not to be played.
Yesterday, 17/02, I went 13-7 in the last 20 matches to go from D1 to Master with this exact list. Light the Fuse felt way underwhelming because I did not face a single Even deck on the way to Master and most of the time I felt I was playing with a 4 cards Market. If the Even decks presence will keep not being as high as I expected I suggest to replace Light the Fuse with Cremate, I often wanted to pick a spot removal off the market and Cremate does the job very well.
Hope you will give it a go, enjoy!

DECEMBER 2019, TORCH NERF PATCH

+3 Rizahn, Greatbow Master
+3 Defiance
+3 Annihilate
+3 Display of Ambition
+1 Slay
+1 Shadow Sigil

-4 Inquisitor Makto
-4 Torch
-3 Desecrate
-2 Cremate
-1 Fire Sigil

MARKET

+1 Adjudicator's Gavel
+1 Svetya, Merciful Orene

-1 Statuary Maiden
-1 Rizahn, Greatbow Master

With Torch not being Fast anymore and Desecrate costing 3 now, I have decided to cut them from the 75 cards MD and replace them with Defiance/Display of Ambition.
Defiance is great to deal with Rakano units+Finest Hour plays and Teacher of Humility, whilst Display comes back because Makto has been replaced with Rizahn, which is a great target to be drawn back from the Void.
Makto leaves us because the metagame is more Aggro oriented now and Rizahn comes into play+potential Lifesteal are more valuable than Makto's recursion.
Cremate is gone too because Rizahn now helps us to deal with opponents Sites.
Talking about the Market, Gavel is fab to deal with opponents Voids while the only card I am doubtful is Svetya, which can be replaced with whatever other card you fancy. I am personally running Dizo's Office at the moment, and even if it can be picked from 4 Merchants only it is performing well.
Enjoy!

NOVEMBER 2019 UPDATE

+3 Suffocate

-2 Defiance
-1 Desecrate

Due to the overwhelming presence of Praxis all over the Throne Ladder, I removed 2 Defiance, that felt way underwhelming since the card was nerfed, and 1 Desecrate in favour of 3 Suffocate, that helps a lot in killing Praxis dorks (Initiate, Devotee/Trail Maker, Tocas) and also help Vs Aggro matchups too.
Let Ju...ehm Winchest shine again!! :D

OCTOBER 2019 ORIGINAL THREAD

As an hardcore fan of Jund decks both in Magic and Eternal, I believed that a Jund/Winchest deck could work in this FoX Throne metagame.

The list does not differ much from the last Dark Frontier Jund/Winchest lists played before the release of FoX. The changes that need to be mentioned are:

- Inquisitor Makto over Rizahn, Greatbow Master: with many Grodov Midrange/Control and Ixtun Spells decks around in Diamond and Master and Skycrag Aggro being weakened from the last balance changes, Rizahn has been benched in the market for now in favour of Makto which is more resilient to Harsh Rules and other mass/spot removal.
- Cremate: Having only 1 Rizahn in the Market and no other ways to target Sites straight away, Cremate represent an efficient and versatile removal for Gardens and Xulta Arcanum.
- Display of Ambition: the lack of Display is due to the fact that Makto has been preferred to Rizahn, with Makto of course not being good a target for Display. Also, no Rizahn main deck means less gain life for us (only Vara left MD) and with already 4 Desecrate MD, running Display could cause us to bleed too much against Aggro matchups.

Hope you will give it a try, have fun!!

mauric Eternal Version: 1.47.9
I've gone 20 games with this exact deck in diamond. I've gone 13-7 which i'm super happy with. Great list.
Blessio Eternal Version: 1.47.9
Glad you like the list and you are doing well in Diamond!
I think Defiance is a very important spot removal (especially against Rakano) right now, we need to be able to deal with Finest Hour plays with Fast Spells as much as possible. I have seen other Winchest lists still playing Torch but I still don't know if the card is worth a spot after the nerf, I believe Suffocate/Defiance are better removal compared to Torch right now (Defiance is Fast and Suffocate kills everything that is small).
Do you think this deck still needs to run Torch?
Ryuzaki Eternal Version: 1.47.5
reached masters with this deck... i didn`t have Xo and defiance was nerfed(a little bit) so what i did was:
-4 Xo
-2 defiance
+3 avigraft
+1 cremate(making a total of 3)
+2 end of story
Also instead of rizahn, i added bore in market as the deck can`t handle any attachments such as a late martyr chains.
Blessio Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Glad you managed to reach Master last month!!
Personally without Xo MD and with Rizahn off the market I would have probably played Rizahn MD instead of few of the cards you mentioned (like +3/4 Rizahn, +1/2 Avigraft and +1 End of Story). Have you ever found yourself with too many removals and not enough threats playing your 75+5?
Bore is still a good market card but from my games I rarely felt I needed it because I didn't play against many attachments/relic.
I would recommend you to craft Xo as soon as you have enough dust, it's very strong in Winchest as it provides card draw, fodder for the Market and it is also a big threat in long value games.
Congrats again! :)
skayleef Eternal Version: 1.47.5
Added display back into the deck because it’s the best card in the deck. I think you tried to make a reason for not including it but you forget the card is more than just drawing back a rhizan. It’s also a fast kill spell, it’s another merchant or 2, it’s fast card draw if xo is in the void, it’s a fast speed combat trick that could be the difference in killing a site or lethal. It’s just an insane card and not including it
Is a mistake.
Blessio Eternal Version: 1.47.5
First of all, thank you for sharing your opinion on the deck, always glad to have a healthy discussion on deckbuilding.
About Display, it can definitely be a mistake not running the card, I just wrote down my thought on why Display could be cut from this specific Winchest list. :)
If I have to be perfectly honest, I believe Slay is the worst card in the deck at the moment, so I would personally replace 2 Slay with 2 Display and then find the space to run the other 2.
What did you cut from the list to play Display? Are you playing 4x off them?
DracoAvenger Eternal Version: 1.47.5
Thanks for the list, made masters this season with it.
Blessio Edited Eternal Version: 1.47.5
You're very welcome, really glad you managed to hit Master with this list!!
Just out of curiosity, did you use the same 75+5 cards to reach Master?
DracoAvenger Edited Eternal Version: 1.47.5
Ye, not a single card changed.

Edit: Also did not feel adding display personally when I was playing. But I guess display also helps in value wars against greed decks.
Sunsfury Eternal Version: 1.47.5
First of all: nice take on the old Winchest midrange!

Also: Jund =/= Winchest. Justice doesn't really correlate to Green in MtG, rather it takes the place of White. Winchest is much closer to Mardu in terms of colours and theme..
VaylinArcher Eternal Version: 1.47.5
And also let's stop using MTG or any other games terms for decks. Eternal has been around long enough. Let's give the game it's due and use Winchest.
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.5
I came here just to say all of the above things
ElderGnome Eternal Version: 1.47.5
yes please!
