Best First Turn Kill ?

Beyond Dominia: Casual and Beginner's Advice Mill: Best First Turn Kill ?

By FFF on Wednesday, January 09, 2002 - 09:06 am:

I was wondering what the BEST First Turn Kill combo is in magic. I'm not asking 5-card combo's with only restricted cards!!!

A first Turn kill or Second Turn kill with a very high probability of killing the opponent.

I want this info to create the "fastest deck" possible... If anyone has decklists concerning this type of deck please post, if you wish to help the creation of the deck please do.

Best first turn kill:

Swamp-Duress-Black Lotus-Necropotence

hmm there are other ones.
1st turn library of alexandria,
1st turn tundra+ mox sapphire+ mana drain+ moprhling should usually kill.

A 69-card deck with 35 wheels of fortune and 34 black lotuses has a 99.7% chance of winning on the first turn if i'm not mistaken. Good luck with finding the cards for it :)

As for actually winning legally in Type 1 (not setting up an obvious win), Academy probably takes the cake as the fastest and most consistent, although Fastbond and Underworld Dream decks CAN be just as fast, but rely more on one particular card to go off, as opposed to Academy which doesn't really care which restricted card its breaking as long as its breaking something :)

Can you say Channel/Kaervik's Torch? I thought you could.

must agree with Troll though any X-damage spell will do, barring a FoW. also a first turn mind twist for 7 usually wins the game for you too, even though it is not an actual kill. for deck arch-types: Academy, Trix, or Kryptonite all have early turn kills. though Kryptonite is really janky.

2 cents

I'm afraid I have lost quite some games with a first turn Lib of Alex and have beaten enough players to know your necropotence sucks...

Hatred maybe?
In a nice Sui B

Raging Goblin+Hatred indeed,

but a deck with 20 Black Lotus, 20 Ancestrall Recall and 20 Ball Lightning will do the trick ;)

All the broken combo decks that spawned form Urza block. Academy and Jar take the cake for consistent turn 1 wins.

By Kh0tH on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 08:49 pm:

if you want non-powered, cheap quickness, go for the first turn carnophage/HATRED!!!!!!

By Kh0tH on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 08:50 pm:

2nd turn actually, maybe raging goblin for 1st
