CKL Plays (Standard) Paradoxical Outcome

This time on CKL Plays, I’m taking a mono blue Paradoxical Outcome/Aetherflux Reservoir combo deck through a few queue matches. This list recently 5-0’ed a MTGO League in the hands of a user named Tulio_Jaudy. Check out his list here.

Disclaimer: I do not claim to be an expert on this deck…or very good at playing it for that matter.  I do, however, manage to win some games with it.  The purpose is to show you how this thing plays out.  Looking back, there are certainly more optimal side boarding decisions that could have been made and generally, holding some of the 0-mana artifacts to accumulate a ‘critical mass’ for a big Aetherflux Reservoir turn would have been a better plan.  Either way, there is something to be gained from watching these.  Enjoy!
