The first of this series of brews was actually a Grixis Reanimator, but when I wrote that one, we didn’t have [card]Chart a Course[/card] 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 [card]Vraska, Relic Seeker[/card]
3) I think [card]Unlicensed Disintegration[/card] 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, [card]Icy Manipulator[/card] 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 [card]Wrath of God[/card]. These days the ole Icy is long gone, but we do have [card]Gideon of the Trials[/card] and now [card]Thaumatic Compass[/card].
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.
[card]Favorable Winds[/card] 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.
