It is time for yet another edition of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Lands!
Jarvis Yu, one of the most well known Lands players, best describes Lands as a Life from the Loam deck.

We are often asked what the best deck is, or the best build of TES and ANT. In truth there is no best version as every shift in the metagame changes the texture of how our deck operates and performs.
