Magic Origins Brews, pt. 9 – Relic Seeker

Well, I have to do it sooner or later…


The immediate instinct of many players is that to make this work, you need a deck full of equipment. This is actually wrong. With this card, you need only a few pieces of equipment and some bodies to carry them. Having something to help this guy through would be nice as well.

I’ve been pushing this off, because I was waiting for a worthwhile piece of equipment to manifest from Magic Origins, but that hasn’t happened. On the other hand, finding an equipment is always a bonus, even if that equipment isn’t very good. Perhaps Veteran’s Sidearm is the way to go.


However, there is a few other interesting pieces of equipment from the past sets.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir
Ghostfire Blade
Haunted Plate Mail
Hero’s Blade

These bring different possibilities, but lets go with Hero’s Blade first.

[deck title=Mardu Legends]
4 Relic Seeker
4 Bloodsoaked Champion
2 Tymaret, the Murder King
3 Alesha, Who Smiles At Death
3 Zurgo Bellstriker
3 Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
3 Brimaz, King of Oreskos
2 Kolaghan, the Storm’s Fury
1 Zurgo Helmsmasher
1 Godsend
4 Hero’s Blade
4 Murderous Cut
4 Nomad Outpost
2 Mana Confluence
4 Caves of Koilos
4 Battlefield Forge
2 Temple of Triumph
2 Temple of Silence
4 Bloodstained Mire
2 Swamp
2 Mountain

Here’s another with Morphs:

[deck title=GW Morphs]
4 Relic Seeker
4 Den Protector
4 Deathmist Raptor
2 Rattleclaw Mystic
4 Hidden Dragonslayer
1 Aven Sunstriker
1 Hooded Hydra
1 Master of Pearls
1 Pine Walker
4 Obscuring Aether
2 Trail of Mystery
4 Ghostfire Blade
1 Heart-Piercer Bow
3 Valorous Stance
4 Temple of Plenty
4 Windswept Heath
4 Blossoming Sands
6 Forest
6 Plains

Why the Bow? Because it works well with [card]Deathmist Raptor[/card].

  1. How does heart-piercer bow work well with deathmist raptor? I’m not seeing the correlation.

    • Oh, yeah, you are right. I remembered the wording wrong. For some reason I assumed the attacking creature dealt the damage.
