Deck Time: UW Tempo

We know History of Benalia is a good card, but what about other Sagas? Some of them are very strong in limited, at the very least, so why not try them in constructed.

You should never equate limited and constructed. They are very different formats, but if a card is very strong in limited, it probably has at leat potential in constructed. Pack Rat. Need I say more?

EDH Deck Time: Yargle

Yargle, Glutton of Urborg is an interesting case. MaRo has communicated to us that it’s more or less a joke. Something they put in Dominaria just to have vanilla legend in there.

However, it is quite unique. How many legendary creatures with such a high power with that mana do you have? Actually, only one bests our little frog spirit: Lord of Tresserhorn

B, T, Tap X untapped Knights you control: Destroy target creature with power X or less.
4/4

Basically 60 card Commander with Standard legal cards, 30 starting life and some rules they apparently haven’t really thought through on when the commander goes to the Command Zone.

Naban, Dean of Iteration
1U
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
2/1
If a Wizard entering the battlefield under your control causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.

Rivals of Ixalan Brews, pt. 3 – Big Red

Big Red has always been one of my favorite archetypes. Ben Stark already showed us that it’s possible, but now we have new tools. The two that feels the best are Etali, Primal Storm and Dire Fleet Daredevil. There’s also, possibly, Rekindling Phoenix, if the metagame is right.
