There’s a new event that started today on Magic Arena. The rules: You need to build a deck with cards from the three latest Ravnica sets with Gates Ablaze banned.
She’s from Phyrexia? Ok. Missed that part of the lore.
As you have probably heard, since you’re here, WotC announced a new format today. It’s known as Brawl. If you didn’t hear about, you can find it here. Basically 60 card Commander with Standard legal cards, 30 starting life and some rules they apparently haven’t really thought through on when the commander goes to the Command Zone.
This still current (for less than two weeks) Standard has been fun. Granted, I haven’t been able to do the usual attacking the meta from a different angle -thing that usually works for me the best, but the range of playable decks has been awesome and even though I don’t really like playing against decks like those revolving around Approach of the Second Sun, those feel like an important piece of the puzzle as they do keep certain decks from becoming prevalent.
Since this past Friday was the last opportunity for me to play a tournament, I made certain I would be able to participate in the FNM.
I’m still basically holding out for a great blue-black commander, but meanwhile, let’s look at what we can do with this guy.
Zombie Jackal Cleric? Okay…
Still haven’t played a game of this format, but who cares? Well, you as my readers might, but hopefully I can bring some insight to this.
Although I’ve chosen not to play red (and white) in EDH, of the limited number of legendary creatures in Modern Masters 2017, Olivia is clearly the one for me.
(Of course, I’d choose the demon, if I could. Although, unlike Olivia, who’s just faring better after the fall of Sorin, Griselbrand is dead, in case someone wants to go that far into Vorthos territory.)
