Legacy Scepter deck

Scepter decks use Isochron Scepter with spells like Orim's Chant and Counterspell to control the opponent until they can win with a big creature. Exalted Angel is preferred because of its life-gain ability, as this deck frequently has the player at low life totals by the time it comes into play. Eternal Dragon and Decree of Justice are other viable finishers used in this deck. The countermagic and Chants are complemented by draw spells like Brainstorm and Fact or Fiction. Some versions use Abeyance (usually sideboard, sometimes main-deck) against control decks with a lot of instants. Mass destruction spells like Wrath of God are also common in scepter decks. Meddling Mage is a clear need for this deck type as well. Meddling Mage can control certain environments and allow for a win on control v/s control.
