Faithless Brewing, Episode 50: A Brewer’s Guide to Ikoria, Lair of Behemoths
Part 2: Wedges, Cycling, and the Best of the Rest
Well, that escalated quickly. Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths has been online for just three days and already the Companion mechanic is running rampant across all formats.
Luckily, we were able to record our second installment of our Brewer’s Guide to Ikoria before the advent of our new cat overlords, when the world was still bright with possibility. And since we already covered the Companions in Part 1, this installment may provide some welcome reprieve from our new furry friends. There are miles of exciting designs from top to bottom in Ikoria: from powerful enchantment engines, to tricky cycling options, efficient legendary creatures, and some slick removal to boot. Let’s go exploring!
