Challenger Deck 2020: Final Adventure Upgrade

Do you want to make your Adventure deck even greater? This Final Adventure Upgrade Guide will help you with that.

We wrote upgrade guides for all Challenger Decks of 2020. In each of them you’ll find a budget version (without additional expensive cards) and a full upgrade (all the best cards). You can choose which one suits you the best. But first, let’s take a look at the original decklist for Final Adventure.

Final Adventure Budget Upgrade

First, we removed both copies of Disfigure. Ideally, those would be replaced with Murderous Rider, but since this is a budget version, we’ll use Drag to the Underworld instead.

Then we also made some changes to the mana base, removing two life-gain lands to make space for two more copies of Temple of Malady. Blacklance Paragon got cut for an additional Forest. Yes, some of our cards are low costed, but we still want to play a land each turn. We have so much too do with our mana (with Advanture cards), that we don’t want to miss a land drop. With 24 lands that’s less likely to happen..

In sideboard, we found some space for two Casualties of War. It is a very powerful card in the right matchup and you should have access to it.

Those are the only changes we’ve made, since the deck is already pretty strong for a budget deck. It should look something like this:

Creature (27)
Knight of the Ebon Legion
Edgewall Innkeeper
Foulmire Knight
Blacklance Paragon
Order of Midnight
Smitten Swordmaster
Lovestruck Beast
Midnight Reaper
Murderous Rider

Planeswalker (1)
Vraska, Golgari Queen

Sorcery (2)
Find // Finality

Instant (2)
Drag to the Underworld

Artifact (4)
Lucky Clover

Land (24)
Castle Locthwain
Fabled Passage
Temple of Malady
Jungle Hollow
Forest
Swamp
Sideboard (15)
Duress
Kraul Harpooner
Noxious Grasp
Thrashing Brontodon
Massacre Girl
Casualties of War

  • Cards added – main deck: 5
  • Cards added – sideboard: 2
  • Total: 7

If you want to continue upgrading with the same game plan in mind consider getting more copies of Fabled Passage and Overgrown Tombs. Our full upgrade will take a different twist on the Adventure archetype.

Final Adventure Upgrade – Full

We based the full upgrade on the deck, that Chris Kvartek played in Top 8 of Mythic Championship back in December. We’ve updated it considering that cards from Theros Beyond Death are now legal.

We don’t play Lucky Clover anymore and knight sub-theme is also gone. Good adventure cards are still present, but Edgewall Innkeeper is the only payoff now. Therefore we have room for heavy hitters like:

The Great Henge

All of them work very well with The Great Henge, allowing us to cast it very quickly, possibly on turn three. Henge helps us offset the card disadvantage from the Regisaur and makes our creatures even better.

Vivien, Arkbow Ranger is also a key piece of the deck, giving our big creatures trample and also serving as a removal spell. Our removal suite is now complete with four Murderous Riders.
