Brought Back, Real Smooth

Modern Horizons / Core Set 2020, Episode 6: Brought Back


Core Set 2020's Brought Back took a star turn during our Lotus Field deep dive a couple weeks ago. So naturally, we Brought it Back for another chance at Modern glory, this time as the featured build-around. Part ramp, part card draw, part reanimation, Brought Back offers a little bit of everything. The only catch? You have to play white. Dave has some ideas, but what did we miss?


Spice Roundup: New Takes on Old Favorites


The wicked Bridge is dead, so it is time for the brewers to come out to play. Spicy decks are everywhere in the 5-0 league results, including some nice takes on cards we have previously explored.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner


Kiora's Dragons (Damon): 2-3 Modern Invitational, powerful but sideboard has "leaky bucket" problem


Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Flashback: Crashing Footfalls


We hoofed it through a few leagues with Crashing Footfalls, trying out multiple strategies for getting the rhinos into play. The card was quite powerful in a number of shells, but in the end there could only be one winner of the Rhino Rumble.


UR Rhinos (KyFly1): 4-6 test leagues, strong but narrow in scope
Restore Rhinos (Jakesbaked): 5-0 test league, felt more versatile against a wide field
BR Free (Dzy): 1-4 test league, fragile and very hard to cast Footfalls
Temur Ascendancy (SvenSveeterSven, 5-0 league)


Brew Session: Brought Back

In the way of the Kiora Dragons deck, the sideboard has too many one-of’s. In my opinion the sideboard would run 2-3 trinisphere, 2 Weather the Storm, 2-4 gravehate, 1 thragtusk(it hates on burn and fair decks), 2-5 creature hate, and 1-2 Alpine Moon, 1-2 Choke
