Faithless Brewing, Episode 82: Brewers' Choice Nominees

 

Seventeen cards are on the ballot for the next edition of Brewers' Choice. The nominees run the gamut: exciting new printings (Valakut Exploration, Confounding Conundrum, Zendikar MDFCs), classic staples (Tarmogoyf, Life from the Loam, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord), tricky tools (Witch's Cottage, Lazav, the Multifarious), and wacky engines (Heartless Summoning, Mirror Gallery, Paradox Engine). There's even a card that first appeared in Legends, and is still best in class more than two decades later (Boomerang)!

 

We've done our best to assess each card's strengths and weaknesses, but what happens next is up to you. Which card(s) will get featured in an upcoming episode of Faithless Brewing? Sign up for our patron poll and tell us what you'd like to see!

We’d Like to Party: Coveted Prize, Zagras & Archpriest of Iona

We’d Like to Party: Coveted Prize, Zagras & Archpriest of Iona

Faithless Brewing, Episode 81: Party Week

David has been pretty adamant that Zendikar Rising's party mechanic is not meant for Constructed. It's not hard to see why: getting four unique creatures onto the battlefield is exceedingly rare in Modern and Pioneer. It doesn't help that most of the Party payoff cards use cost reduction: imagine trying to cast Karn Liberated if all of your Mines, Towers, and Power Plants died to Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt.

 

Nevertheless, some of the payoffs are enticing, especially Coveted Prize, Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats, and Archpriest of Iona. 2020 has been an exceedingly long year, and we sure would like to party. There’s no shortage of Rogues, Clerics, Warriors, and Wizards if you’re willing to do a little digging, so fire up Scryfall and let’s dig! The decklists are spicy and the squad is lit, so grab the supplies, assemble your crew and let’s get the party started!

Attack of the Clones: Is Glasspool Mimic the Best Kept Secret in Modern?

Attack of the Clones: Is Glasspool Mimic the Best Kept Secret in Modern?

Faithless Brewing, Episode 80: Glasspool Mimic

 

The best-kept secret from Zendikar Rising has been hiding right in your manabase. While flashier mythics have grabbed the headlines, Glasspool has quietly burrowed into a huge variety of successful decklists. Does your deck play creatures? Would you perhaps like more of those creatures? Look no further, Glasspool is your Mimic, at the low cost of a tapped blue land.

 

Optionality is powerful and the baseline stats are already solid, but synergies with Aether Vial, Collected Company, and blink effects might just take Glasspool to the next level. There's only one way to find out!
