The Modern Bible of RG Tron Chapter six - The Titan deck

This week we will present the second of our three deck lists for RG Tron. We will call this deck list "Titan" as it features Sundering Titan.

The plan
The strategy remains the same as detailed in the other chapters.

If Sundering Titan does not get all their lands, we have the best endgame in the format with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

Sundering Titan
Against decks that rely on many colors of Mana (such as Abzan or Scapeshift) a resolved Sundering Titan can often win you the game.

If you include Sundering Titan in your deck, it is very common to also include a Cavern of Souls (as discussed in chapter two) to make sure you can resolve him against control decks (that are often devastated by the Titan's ability).

Sundering Titan and Ulamog are mutually exclusive, as they occupy the same spot in the deck.

I was very dismissive of Sundering Titan in my early Tron career, but lately I have learned to love him.
