Modern Horizons 2, Episode 6: Weekly Roundup

 

There were two big storylines from the first weekend of MH2 events. First, there are SO MANY COOL DECKS, and they look awesome. Modern is great right now. Second, there are SO MANY URZA'S SAGA DECKS, and they look terrifying. Modern may be in trouble if Saga is as broken as it seems.

 

Special guest Urchin Colley returns this week to help us sort through the coolest innovations with Modern Horizons standouts. We also peer deep into the crystal ball to see what the future holds for Urza's fourth-favorite land. Appearing in decks as wide-ranging as Amulet, Affinity, Foodgaak, Hardened Scales, HammerTime, Lantern, Dice Factory, UW Control, and even Tron, it’s hard to escape the feeling that there might be a another chapter on the horizon. I: Add mana. II: Make token. III: Fetch artifact. IV: Get banned?

Last Call for Strixhaven: Conspiracy Theorist, Quandrix Apprentice, Prismari Command

Last Call for Strixhaven: Conspiracy Theorist, Quandrix Apprentice, Prismari Command

May 23, 2021

Strixhaven, Episode 16: Brew Session + Flashback

Modern Horizons is here, which means it's last call for brews at the School of Mages. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here. 

We're emptying out the canister this week with a few miscellaneous brews. Quandrix Apprentice showed promise last week, so David is keen to push it to the limit. Conspiracy Theorist has us hoping for a Hollow One revival. Prismari Command can force your opponent to draw and discard, which means Notion Thief is back on the menu.

Meanwhile on the Flashback, our Izzet decks from last week acquitted themselves well, including a 5-0 with Expressive Iteration. But Galazeth Prismari managed to make a believer out of Dan, in Modern no less, leading to some truly crazy 5 color builds.

Express Yourself: Galazeth Brews for the Prismari Virtuoso

Express Yourself: Galazeth Brews for the Prismari Virtuoso

May 16, 2021

Strixhaven, Episode 14: Galazeth Prismari, Expressive Iteration

 

Expressive Iteration is making its presence felt. Already a staple in Izzet Prowess in Modern, more and more decks are realizing that they might be able to get good use from this powerful Prismari sorcery. Meanwhile, Galazeth Prismari himself continues to pose a riddle: make artifacts, to cast instants and sorceries, while also winning with medium sized Dragons. Its a formula that David just can't quit as he's back again with four new decks to test in Modern and Pioneer.

Meanwhile on the Flashback, Sedgemoor Witch had a tough outing. Whether in more speculative Golgari token brews, or in the tried and true Rakdos shells, it was hard to unlock the promise of the Witch, even if the combo with Tend the Pests was decidedly sweet. Still, the Witch keeps showing up in Modern 5-0s, and Dan has some ideas for promising new directions.
