Yes, there are other good ones as well, like we saw during the Pro Tour in a monowhite aggressive deck, but we are going for a more midrangish version here, albeit with some synergies.

What does the new set bring? Quite a few cards… but much too concentrated on four. We have Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Twilight Prophet and Bishop of Binding on that coveted spot, while we have Champion of Dusk on five and Legion Lieutenant on two. It actually depends highly on which way we want to go when we make decisions on these. But we are here to midrange value our opponents out, so let’s go that way.
