Faithless Brewing, Episode 4: Karn, the Great Creator and Teferi, Time Raveler


You don’t have to look far these days to find Karn, Teferi, and Narset locking down battlefields across all formats. We don’t have to like it, but we owe it to ourselves to at least try them out in some brews. David is intrigued by Liquimetal Coating and Isochron Scepter, while Dan has his eye on Lavinia, Azorius Renegade.


Flashback: Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner


Another week, another Faithless 5-0! We recap our week of testing with Kiora, which led us to create a sleek new Glorybringer list that would make the Mother of Dragons proud (is it too soon?). But we didn’t stop there; the crew also tried numerous other builds featuring a wild menagerie of 4-power creatures: Vexing Devil, Rampaging Baloths, Thought-Knot Seer, God-Eternal Oketra. Which ones are tournament ready and which ones are best discarded?


Vexing Zoo: tried and rejected


Abzan Little Kid: needs tuning


Dragon Ramp: tournament ready (5-0 league, 16-4 overall)


Proposed but not tested: Green Devotion, Temur Ascendancy, Bant Eldrazi
