Amonkhet Brews, pt. 5 – Back to Monoblue Brain in a Jar, Without the Brain

So, looking at Saffron Olive’s original list, we’ve lost a few cards, but not that many. [card]Disperse[/card] can be easily replaced with cards that are strictly better, such as [card]Compelling Deterrence[/card], but [card]Mage-Ring Network[/card] is a bit more problematic. Having played the deck some, it feels like a big loss.

On the other hand, there’s a number of cards with cycling, which could potentially be very good. [card]As Foretold[/card] can replace the [card]Brain in a Jar[/card], especially in an environment with rampant artifact desctruction. Mix of both might also be a good idea.

Sadly, [card]Engulf the Shore[/card] want be very good in many spots, because of the high toughness of many creatures, especially in the BG decks, but this is more of a fun deck than an actual competitor.
