It’s weird that Valki can only change forms once, but here we are anyhow. This is actually an interesting card. This color pairing is hardly the best for ramping, but being able to play Tibalt even once is very strong. If Tibalt dies, that’s not really a problem.
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.
A less talked about card, Faith of the Devoted could be the key card in a deck much like the more popular brewing target Drake Haven, but with colors I enjoy more in Standard. Not that the pair is generally very well supported, but doesn’t mean I can’t try.
