The Spiciest Decks of Pro Tour Thunder Junction

Pedro San Segundo, who qualified for his first Pro Tour at the European Championship earlier this year, is the only player in the tournament to register main deck Bloodletter of Aclazotz and Rush of Dread. Although Hall of Famer Alan Comer has these two cards in the sideboard of his spicy Grixis Reanimator deck, perhaps to pivot against graveyard hate, Pedro San Segundo aims to assemble the game-wining combo as early as Game 1.


If you control Bloodletter of Aclazotz and then force your opponent to lose half their life with Rush of Dread, then they’ll fall down to zero life, making this a two-card combo that immediately wins the game. Although a single Go for the Throat stops it, the two cards are playable on their own, and Insatiable Avarice can tutor for a missing piece. When drawn separately, Bloodletter of Aclazotz enables a fast clock, and Rush of Dread will wreck opponents who control three creatures.

The two-card combo is wrapped in a crimes shell, using numerous cards from Outlaws of Thunder Junction. Tinybones Joins Up and Tinybones, the Pickpocket are all about living a criminal lifestyle, while Vadmir, New Blood; Kaervek, the Punisher; and Gisa, the Hellraiser provide bonuses for committing crimes. For example, if Gisa, the Hellraiser enters while you control Tinybones Joins Up, then Gisa immediately creates two Zombie tokens, producing a massive army before your opponent has a chance to remove her. It would be a crime not to root for this delightfully devious deck.
