  • I went 5-2 running Bant Golos. My wins were vs Monoblack aggro, Monoblack vampires, two Golgari decks (one conceded after I Treachery’d his 6/6 Questing Beast), and I forget what the other one was (definitely not monored or the mirror)

    Losses were to mono-black aggro (I had the realm-cloaked giant for the wrath, but failed to notice I didnt have two white and played the wrong guildgate the turn before) and to the mirror (I got 2 field of the dead first, but he had kenrick and agent of treachery + teferi to take my fields =/)

  • Posted on r/MagicArena: Settings aside the issues with wildcard pricing, what curated cards would you like to see enter the Historic format?

    Of course the suggestions from Wotc twitter (Bob, Bolt and Wurmcoil) are a bit ridiculous. I imagine that a lower power level would be needed. Historic needs to differentiate itself from Standard but not be as ridiculous as modern, and build up slowly but surely. I would like to see cards that had their time in Standard but haven’t really found a good place in Modern. I don’t agree with those saying it should be Origins-forward though, I think that’s unnecessarily restrictive.

    Some of my initial ideas (the first 10 are color balanced, but the rest are not):

    Knight of the White Orchid

    Keiga, the Tide Star

    Korlash, Heir to Blackblade

    Pia and Kiran Nalaar

    Wren’s Run Packmaster

    Ojutai’s Command

    Shadowmage Infiltrator

    Demigod of Revenge

    Huntmaster of the Fells

    Dauntless Escort

    Siege Rhino

    Cruel Ultimatum

    Desolation Angel

    Mystical Teachings


    Kessig Wolf Run
