Eldritch Moon Brews, pt. 10 – Brewing with the Pariah

Well, apparently, Voldaren Pariah is a bomb, at least based on my experience in Limited. Sure, Limited and Standard are really different worlds, but when something functions really well in Limited, you should at least test it in Standard. Remember this guy?

Eldritch Moon Brews, pt. 9 – UW Spirits

I’ve been playing Tomoharu Saito’s UR Flash deck a lot recently. I love. I also like the Dragon variant, but Rattlechains and Dimensional Infiltrator is where its at for me. There already was a blue-white version of this deck, which also seems powerful, but this time it gets a huge boost in a couple of very good cards (okay, one good, two I think might very well make it):

Eldritch Moon Brews, pt. 4 – Big White

Seems to me, thusfar, white has gotten the best tools out of Eldritch Moon, which is a bit problematic, since it was already such a good color in Standard. There isn’t even much rotating out, when Kaladesh comes in. So, I thought why even play other colors? There were actually a couple of fairly well performing Big White decks early in the format, but they fell on the wayside for whatever reason. Still, the bomb contingency in this set is so good, I think this is something one might try… Is this going to be the most expensive monocolored deck in Standard ever?
