Hello all and welcome to another edition of Forcing the Will. Today we have a special article for you all, but before I get to that, let’s go over a few things first. First of all, the Legacy events on MTGO have continued to not fire, so I don’t have any MTGO Legacy Metagame report for you. I will, however, be going over the Legacy deck known as Thresh, specifically 3C (3-Color) Thresh. After the 3C Thresh videos, I have a special announcement and video for you all, but make sure to check out the 3C Thresh videos first! So let’s not waste any more time and get into the 3C Thresh deck.
Threshold decks have been around since Odyssey Block was first released. Since then there have been many variations of Thresh decks ranging from the Standard format all the way to the Vintage format, but in the Legacy format there is one Threshold deck that is played more frequently than others. The Threshold deck played in Legacy is often the 3C Threshold build which consists of red, blue, and green spells.
The basic concept behind the Threshold deck is to use 1-2cc creatures that abuse having a graveyard full of cards. Most Threshold decks will run Nimble Mongoose, Tarmogoyf, and Grim Lavamancer, all of which gain benefits from a full graveyard. The Thresh deck gets its name from Nimble Mongoose‘s threshold ability, which will transform the ferocious 1/1 shroud into a 3/3 untargetable nightmare for your opponent once there are 7+ cards in your graveyard. To do this, the deck runs a number of 1-2cc to help manipulate your library, counter your opponent’s spells, and burn you opponent’s face or their creatures. The deck is very much an Aggro Control type of deck and is quite formidable against most decks in the Legacy Metagame. Enough of my rambling; let’s get on to the version of the deck I decided to play.

I will now go into further detail about the cards in the 3C Thresh deck as well as provide some sample games of the deck in action. So get comfortable and enjoy the videos!

There you have it folks, 3C Thresh in action! I hope you found these videos to be both useful and entertaining. I am personally very fond of this deck, and would highly recommend it to someone who wants a deck that does well in Legacy. The deck has a good matchup against most decks in the format, but if you do decide to play the deck make sure to take a look at the metagame and adjust the sideboard to have a greater chance of winning against certain decks in Games 2 and 3. If you have any criticisms both positive and negative, comments, or questions about the deck or videos, feel free to post a comment below, or contact me either by email at ForcingtheWill@gmail.com or on MTGO at my username KillerOwen.
Usually I would present you with the ‘You Choose the Deck’ segment of my Forcing the Will article, but today I have some important news for all of my readers. I have decided to take a break from the Forcing the Will series and will not be doing any more articles at this point in time. This doesn’t mean that I am done with the Forcing the Will series forever, but for the time being I am done. Rather than blab on and on in this article, I decided to do something a little more personal and thank everyone face to face for making my Forcing the Will articles happen. I couldn’t have done it without MTGO Academy or my readers and fans, and I am very thankful for all of you. So without further ado, I present my farewell video.
I hope you all understand my reasoning for ending the series, and again I apologize to my readers and fans. You all mean so much to me, and I am grateful to have such a wonderful group of fans and friends surrounding me. Please remember to spread the word and watch and subscribe to my YouTube channel so that I can start uploading my videos there as well.
That’s all for this installment of Forcing the Will. I hope you all have enjoyed the Forcing the Will series. It has been quite an experience for me, and I hope that it was a wonderful experience for you all, as well. Please leave any comments, or questions you have both positive or negative, and I will do my best to respond to them. And until we meet again, may the Force of Will be with you! Seriously I’m going to miss saying that… Catch you all later!
