The first of this series of brews was actually a Grixis Reanimator, but when I wrote that one, we didn’t have [scryfall]Chart a Course[/scryfall] yet. So, let’s just cut red.

Ixalan Brews, pt. 10 – Jund
1) Currently, the available lands provide a better manabase for shards than wedges.
2) I want to play [scryfall]Vraska, Relic Seeker[/scryfall]
3) I think [scryfall]Unlicensed Disintegration[/scryfall] is going to be pretty strong in a world full of dinosaurs
So, Jund it is.
Ixalan Brews, pt. 9 – Looking for Orazca
Back in the day, a long, long time ago, [scryfall]Icy Manipulator[/scryfall] 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 [scryfall]Wrath of God[/scryfall]. These days the ole Icy is long gone, but we do have [scryfall]Gideon of the Trials[/scryfall] and now [scryfall]Thaumatic Compass[/scryfall].
Ixalan Brews, pt. 8 – Looking for Azcanta
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…
Ixalan Brews, pt. 7 – Monoblack Improvise
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.
Ixalan Brews, pt. 6 – Favorable Winds
[scryfall]Favorable Winds[/scryfall] 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.
