Evergreens - The Rotation Free Lists!

Ok guys, Rotation is nearly upon us!

Maybe it’s time to think about the decks that won’t ever rotate. Yes, i’m talking about the Evergreen Lists!
This might be a good idea to post some decks here that might be competitive and still can be composed out of cards from core set and Big-Box Expansions. For beginners this is a great way to start a collection and play. So go!


Simple Katman. Not sure about final econ piece, Tech Writer may need to be replaced with ProCo or Armitage.

Until we know whether Core 2.0 is definitely legit (as opposed to just likely) this exercise might be a bit difficult. The list above for example has parasite which is rumored to be out, although I suspect the majority of it is fine.


What standards are we using to judge “likely” in this context?


It continues to feel like a mass delusion from what I’ve ever been able to make out.

At any rate saying you can’t consider rotation-free decklists because they might release something in the future isn’t a great way of thinking about this. You could reasonably say “you can’t think about post rotation decks because we don’t know what’s coming in the next cycle” and while it’s true it also suggests you should be weirdly inert which doesn’t seem fun or useful.


I think the theory is some playtester told their friends who told their friends who told their friends. No one wants to post where they heard it or why they think it’s official because it would out the original source. That said, I’m a core2 agnostic - I get why people believe, I get why people are skeptical, but personally I’m gonna wait for evidence and in the meantime just keep bitching about the lack of MWL.


Cambridge already pulls a lot from big boxes, so here’s a quick evergreen version. 10/15 Inf, if one cares to mess around with it.
