The first of this series of brews was actually a
Grixis Reanimator, but when I wrote that one, we didn’t have Chart a Course yet. So, let’s just cut red.
1) Currently, the available lands provide a better manabase for shards than wedges.
2) I want to play Vraska, Relic Seeker
3) I think Unlicensed Disintegration is going to be pretty strong in a world full of dinosaurs
So, Jund it is.
Back in the day, a long, long time ago,
Icy Manipulator was a great card, because you could use it to force an opponent to play more than one threat, so you could gain value from Wrath of God. These days the ole Icy is long gone, but we do have Gideon of the Trials and now Thaumatic Compass.
All the double-faced cards in the set are kind of curious. They certainly have a high upside (as they are all rares), but the floor might be low as well. Is it worth it? I don’t really know. Let’s try this one…
There was a deck with various synergies pretty much all over the place I used to play. It loses some cards in rotation, but much of it’s core is still intact.
Favorable Winds is back. I don’t think anyone was glamoring for it, but it might have it’s uses. Let’s see what could benefit from it.
