Real Ultimate Power: Planeswalker Combo with Kasmina, Enigma Sage
Strixhaven, Episode 6: Kasmina, Enigma Sage What if every planeswalker had an extra +2 loyalty ability, and a powerful -8 ultimate? For some, it would make no difference at all. For others, these new abilities would be a game changer. Teferi, Master of Time would gain loyalty at a frightening rate. Many walkers would now be able to ultimate the turn after coming into play. For others, such as Narset, Parter of Veils, the bonus +2 could fuel even more activations of a powerful minus. On top of all that, every planeswalker now gets a wonky ability to make tokens, if push comes to shove. These are just some of the riddles posed by Kasmina, Enigma Sage. On the surface Kasmina is an underpowered card, barely giving you back a full card worth of value unless you happen to reach her -8. Everything depends on the synergies that Kasmina unlocks. But there's no denying some of these combinations are powerful. We're pushing Fractals to the limit this week with a half dozen new takes on Kasmina in Modern and Pioneer. Let's see what she can do!   **** Decklists + a full transcipt for this episode can be viewed at FaithlessBrewing.com **** Like our content? Support us on Patreon and join our brewing community!

Meanwhile, Faithless Looting is back in the headlines, for all the wrong reasons.   On the Flashback, we tested some truly speculative builds with Peace of Mind and "Oops All Legends." The good news is that Alrund's Epiphany has been stronger than anticipated, and David's Narset Bring to Light deck might be just be the best deck in Pioneer.   **** Decklists for this episode can be viewed at FaithlessBrewing.com **** Like our content?

The Watchtower 02/22/21 – Finally Some Good Flipping Bans
Last week we had a Banned & Restricted announcement that gave a colossal shakeup to four different formats (plus an unban in Vintage). We had fifteen bans across Historic, Pioneer, Modern and Legacy, and a lot of those bans have opened up opportunities within each format for both new and old decks to be played … Continue reading The Watchtower 02/22/21 – Finally Some Good Flipping Bans →

The Time Spiral block is a beloved mark in MTG’s history with more than a handful of iconic cards and an exciting theme as the cherry on top. With remastered sets setting themselves up as a good way for Wizards to pump old favorites back into our view, it’s only natural that Time Spiral Remastered is on its way.

Free Alternatives to LSV’s Set Reviews
If you play MTG, you’ll almost definitely have heard the name LSV. That’s Luis Scott-Vargas for you guys and gals who’re hearing the name for the first time. He’s in the Magic hall of fame, is one of three players who’ve achieved three ProTour top 8s in a row, and an all-out extraordinary player. Not only in Standard but across the board of competitive formats. He also helped launch Channel Fireball, writes strategic articles, is a game developer, and hosts several podcasts.

Deck Guide: Izzet Tempo/Control in Standard
This Izzet deck went into a hiatus after the last Standard rotation and a sort of full obscurity, but now it’s back. Is it strong, though? Absolutely! While the deck runs a lot of control elements, it's also full of extraordinary creatures. Most players call it a tempo deck, but I’d much rather classify it as a control deck seeing how we’re running a pretty steep curve with [card]Goldspan Dragon[/card] and such. Whatever the terminology, the deck is fantastic. The post Deck Guide: Izzet Tempo/Control in Standard appeared first on Draftsim.

<p>In each strixhaven draft booster there is a rare slot, 3 uncommon slots, a lesson slot, a mystic archive slot and the rest of the slots are taken by commons.
