Rotation Grief: Ravnica Allegiance, Part 2, Commander Legends: Abomination of Llanowar on a Budget, Commander Legends: Akroma and Kamahl Empowering the Weak, VIDEO: 4C Uro Piles Deck Tech (Modern) + Deck Variants, Search for Azcanta / Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin. Domri, Chaos Bringer: Slightly too slow at four mana for the kind of deck he wanted to be in, the late Domri would luckily give one last proof of his worth in War of the Spark. Rakdos, the Showstopper: It pains me to say this — which would make Rakdos happy — but the latest incarnation of the leader of the Rakdos Cult didn't stop any show. Under its straightforward appearance, the Spellbreaker hid many talents. Walking Ballista is a huge loss for the deck, and it doesn’t really have a good replacement beyond board sweepers. Unbreakable Formation: The favored finishing move in White Aggro and related builds, second as mass pump only to Venerated Loxodon.

All Rights Reserved. Unique Promo Card! I think you should sell your Pools and your Blood Crypts ($15) right now. Grief Factor: 2/10. The flavor was sublime, though. I’ll be sorry to see Cast Out go, as it played an important role in the deck. They were like noncompetitive, acid versions of Doom Foretold builds, and we'll miss them dearly. The only issue with Unbreakable Formation was its high dependency on board state, whereas Loxodon could give up on value and provide a decent body on an empty board as well. Let me tell you, this set has some clunkers, but also some unexpected opportunities. Grief Factor: 3/10. Grief Factor: 11/10. Once enough untappers like Corridor Monitor and Hyrax Tower Scout were printed, Vannifar got to be the enabler of a combo kill involving Nightmare Shepherd and Gray Merchant of Asphodel that was pretty darn effective. Grief Factor: 5/10. I can’t find it mentioned anywhere else. And preventing all targeting on the player created unexpected additional benefits; for a little while, it was even able to shut down Settle the Wreckage! Orzhov Enforcer: One of the better low-rent afterlife creatures. But the it was born here in Ravnica Allegiance and existed in Standard for almost two full years. We lose Jace’s Defeat, and for now I’m replacing it with three copies of Syncopate, due to it’s flexibility as well as its usefulness in handling cards that might come back to haunt us if not exiled. Grief Factor: 8/10. Grief Factor: 8/10. Last week was Guilds of Ravnica, now it’s time for Ravnica Allegiance. And it did, with many creature-based builds like Hero and Vannifar enjoying the removal option, even with the return clause making it somewhat ephemeral. Biomancer's Familiar: This Mutant did what Zirda would do before it was cool — except not as a companion, and only for creatures, so the combo decks it engendered ended up being more niche. Again, we aren’t going to play in paper until after rotation. MTG Arena Zone © 2020.
