Flores Blue 2005.

Description of deck by Patrick Chapin (quoted):
Flores Blue was incredibly dominant during the latter half of 2005, especially around the time of the State Championships. It is the prime example of one of the most important contributions to deck building Flores ever produced, that of the “Tap Out Blue Deck.”

The way a Tap Out Blue deck works is by using reactive cards to buy time to start dropping bombs (such as Keiga and Meloku). Whereas older theory was that a control deck should never tap out, Flores reasoned that nothing the opponent could do would be as good as a Meloku or Keiga anyway, so you could tap out for either without fear, as long as you were not horribly behind on board.

The impact of this theory can be seen today, with decks like Cruel Control and Tron tapping out without fear.
