Sablock Deck List (aka Sablelock Decklist)

by Ed ~ August 6th, 2010.

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now. The Sablock (aka Sablelock, Sableye Lock, SPionage, Sabledonk, etc.) deck was gaining in popularity, and now that it won US Nationals, it’s becoming the deck to play (or at least know how to play against). Lots of people want a good list for this deck, and rightfully so.

Way back when the deck was first starting to come to the forefront (right after it made some impressive showings in certain State Championships), we covered it. At that time, ran a Sablelock Deck Workshop in which we discussed how the deck worked and, with reader help, built a workable list for it.

At the time, some considered it a secret deck, but now it’s a known top-tier headache (for its opponents, of course). It is so well known now that even POP (aka PP) has even posted a decklist for it. So, let’s take a look at it.

I actually noticed the POP article at the end of July, but I’ve been putting off posting this article (for no good reason). Oddly enough, just NOW while I was typing this up, I noticed that Adam over at 6-Prizes just posted about it. So, sorry Adam. This probably looks like I’m copying you, but I really have been intending to post this for a while now. And to be fair, we’re both really just copying TPCI’s content, anyway.
