Faithless Brewing, Episode 32: Scrap Trawler, New Perspectives, Astral Drift   It was a golden weekend for Niv-Mizzet at Grand Prix Columbus, with Dan and Damon both posting 10-4-1 finishes with our favorite Faithless Brew. Is Niv the last control deck in Modern? What we do know is that, at the last Grand Prix of 2019, Niv quietly had one of the best performances of any archetype in the field.   This week, however, we depart from the realm of flashy five-color control, and turn our attention instead to some truly bizarre combos. Scraps from the Oven? New Perspectives? Astral Drift Turbo-Land? Oh yes, these are going to be spicy ones.   We are joined this week by special guest brewer Danny Salvatore, fresh off a Top 4 finish at the SCG Invitational. We talk about his preparations in Modern and Pioneer leading up to the Invi and the GP, before we collectively dive headfirst into assembling the combo machine.   Flashback: SCG Invitational + Grand Prix Columbus   SCG Invitational (Pioneer / Modern)   Green Devotion (Danny Salvatore, 3rd place) Grixis Shadow (Danny Salvatore, 3rd place)   GP Columbus (Modern)   Utopia Niv-Mizzet (Dan + Damon, 10-4-1, 40th & 42nd place)   Rakdos Bone Picker: 2-3 league, needed more creatures to crew with   Brew Session: Comboing Off   Sketch #1: Scraps from the Oven   Sketch #2: New Perspectives (Growth Spiral version)   Sketch #3: New Perspectives (Blood Sun version)   Brainstorm Session: Astral Drift Turbo-Land   Contact Us   If you like our show, be sure to leave us a review!

What's Cooking? Firing Up the Witch's Oven
Faithless Brewing, Episode 31: Witch's Oven   Let's face it, Vantress Gargoyle is probably not going to make the leap to eternal playable anytime soon. It struggles to attack in Pioneer, although our Modern explorations did yield some very interesting builds using powerful tools like Archive Trap and Into the Story. That being said, when a card can't even hack it in Standard, we shouldn't ask too much of it off the bat.   On the other hand, when a card is dominating Standard and meets the benchmark metrics for eternal playability (best in class effect, highly efficient, useful card type) it is certainly worth a closer look. Witch's Oven fits that bill. The "Kentucky Fried Kitten" / "Meow Mix" combo with Cauldron Familiar was a breakout star at the most recent Mythic Championships, and those two have started to make some inroads into Pioneer as well. But how good is this combo really? And is there more to the Oven than just cat food? While Damon and Dan are busy prepping Niv-Mizzet in Modern for GP Columbus, David has been cooking up some spicy Oven lists that he thinks just might hit the sweet spot.   Flashback: Vantress Gargoyle   Modern   Simic Flying Goyfs: 3-2 league. Extremely effective at finding big flyers and attacking with them, but struggles against creature decks and high density of removal.   Sultai Flying Goyfs: 2-3 league, noticeably clunkier than the Simic version because Glimpse and Hedron Crab fight for mana, but some additions like Drown in the Loch are well worth the price of admission.   Gargoyles, Please!: 2-3 league. Yes, this is a Modern list with four copies of Didn't Say Please. The concept here is not bad, but the execution could use refinement.   Turbo Trap Control: 4-1 league. This strategy might be secretly excellent. Needs a more diverse set of spells in the main deck, but Mystic Sanctuary + Into the Story is incredible and the sideboard juke plan can steal games.   Pioneer   Emry Ascendancy: achieved numerous turn 3 kills, but this deck relies super heavily on Emry surviving, and probably shouldn't run any Gargoyles as they can never attack   Gargoyle Gift: 3-2 league, Gargoyle is actually a decent blocker here and synergizes with both Kiora and Gift   Bonus list: Retraction Helix Ascendancy by MrRaeb   Brew Session: Witch's Oven   Pioneer   Sketch 1: Sultai Cat Dredge   Sketch 2: Rakdos Bone Picker   Sketch 3: Grixis Emerge Oven   Sketch 4: Orzhov Life Gain   Modern   Utopia Niv-Mizzet (GP Columbus build)   Contact Us   Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/faithlessbrewing If you like our show, be sure to join our community of brewers!   Twitter: @FaithlessMTG Email: faithless.brewing@gmail.com   Homepage: faithlessbrewing.podbean.com   We rely on brewers like you to help us improve the show and bring you better content.

The Real Gargoyles of Castle Vantress

The Real Gargoyles of Castle Vantress
Faithless Brewing, Episode 30: Vantress Gargoyle (Modern & Pioneer)   Just when you thought you'd seen it all, it turns out the castles of Eldraine are guarded by blue Tarmogoyfs with wings. At 5/4 flying for 1U, Vantress Gargoyle is an absolute unit. It's even an artifact to boot, with an illustrious pedigree of potential synergies. The catch? It might be a while before you can start attacking. Oh, and if you want to block, better make sure that hand size doesn't get too low. Perhaps you'd like to tap and mill for 1 instead?   Good cards come to those who break them, so this week, the crew is leaving no stone unturned with new lists for Vantress Gargoyle in both Pioneer and Modern. Will we ever attack with this card? Will we ever get to block with it? And perhaps most important of all, is this strong enough to be the centerpiece of its own deck, or is the Gargoyle better utilized as a role player in small numbers?

Royal Pain in the Scions
Faithless Brewing, Episode 29: The Royal Scions (Modern & Pioneer)   Kiora delivered us a fresh 5-0 last week, but we knew that would happen, as Kiora has always been great. The combination with Glorybringer is excellent in Modern and even stronger in Pioneer, although the mana requirements proved to be much trickier without the smooth shock-fetch manabase. Eldrazi add an interesting wrinkle to the Gruul ramp archetype, and Niv-Mizzet got in on the 5-0 action too.   This week, we're on to the next 3 CMC walker with absurdly high loyalty. Oko has already been widely accepted as planeswalker royalty, but what about Eldraine's actual royalty, the dashing Kenrith Kids? Two useful +1s and an achievable ultimate make The Royal Scions an attractive card to brew around, in both Modern and Pioneer. We've got more than a dozen new lists, so whether you like looting for value, unlocking graveyard synergies, or pumping creatures and turning them sideways, there's something for everyone this week!   Roundup: Pioneer B&R Announcement   Pioneer B&R Announcement   Aaron Forsythe tweet   Kiora Green Devotion (Dan): 3-2 league   Flashback: Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner   Modern   Classic Niv-Mizzet (Damon): 5-0 league   Once Upon KiorDrazi (Dan): 5-0 league, 3-3 Modern Challenge   Once Upon Kiora (Damon): 4-1 league   Pioneer   RG Dragons (David): 2-3 league, 4-1 league   RG Dragons (Damon): 0-4 league, 4-1 league   Jeskai Dragons (David): 4-1 league, 1-4 league   Jeskai God-Pharaoh's Gift (David): 2-3 league   Brew Session: The Royal Scions   Pioneer   Sketch 1: Grixis Royal Arcanist   Sketch 2: Izzet Royal Prowess   Sketch 3a: 4c Royal Vehicles v1   Sketch 3b: 4c Royal Vehicles v2   Sketch 4a: Grixis Flamewake v1   Sketch 4b: Grixis Flamewake v2   Sketch 5: Temur Deathtouch Company   Sketch 6: Temur Pummeler   Sketch 7: 4c Faeburrow Company     Modern   Sketch 1: Grixis Royal Arcanist   Sketch 2: Temur Royal Phoenix   Sketch 3: Wrenn and Scions Midrange   Sketch 4: Izzet Collected Ponza   Reference: Blue Moon (thepensword)   Reference: Temur Kiora (Dan, 5-0)   Reference: Faeburrow Niv (Damon, 5-0)     Contact Us   We are now on Patreon!

Bonecrushing and Glorybringing in Modern and Pioneer
Faithless Brewing, Episode 28: Kiora Returns   It's finally time to dive into Pioneer, so it's no surprise that the first card we want to brew around is... Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner? That's right, Kiora! An old favorite on Faithless Brewing, Kiora has always been secretly excellent in Modern, especially when paired with Glorybringer in a ramp shell. New additions from Eldraine have Dan interested in updating the Modern list, while David believes that the basic shell can be ported over to Pioneer as well. But that's not all that Kiora can do. Looking outside of green, David has some wilder ideas for unlocking Kiora's synergies in Esper, Grixis, and Izzet. Do any of them have what it takes to keep up in the wild west that is Pioneer?   Update: We are now on Patreon! If you like our show, please consider joining our community: https://www.patreon.com/faithlessbrewing   Also, Dan has a new article up at Arenadecklists.gg, covering the rules of engagement for building successful decks in Pioneer.

What abilities are lands allowed to have? Can a land that taps for white have an ability that costs blue mana to activate? or do you try to stay away from making lands like that?

What abilities are lands allowed to have? Can a land that taps for white have an ability that costs blue mana to activate? or do you try to stay away from making lands like that?
We make lands that are connected to two colors, but this is a bit odd.

Did Jeska gain any colors after she split from Karona and became a planeswalker or is she still mono-red?

Did Jeska gain any colors after she split from Karona and became a planeswalker or is she still mono-red?
My best guess is she’d be monored.

Could two planes with different mechanical identities be on the same world (e.g. on opposite sides of an ocean or mountain range).

Could two planes with different mechanical identities be on the same world (e.g. on opposite sides of an ocean or mountain range).
I think you’re misunderstanding what a plane is. If you’re in the other side of a mountain, you’re on the same plane. What I assume you’re asking is could a single plane have two different mechanical identities? Without a larger supporting reason, it just fights the very point of having different planes. When we return to a world, we want players excited because they know roughly what to expect. Dominaria was unique in that it had a strong nostalgia aspect (as the game spent most of its first ten years there).

Ostrich penguin and chicken. . . Are there any other iconic non flying bird's?
In your list of three, one of them can fly - chickens. Okay, not particularly far, but they can reach heights of 10 feet.
