Season 11, Episode 4: Midnight Hunt Set Review, Part 3 of 3

Ah, the harvest festival! The pumpkins are fresh, the moon is full, and the werewolves are howling. Is there anything more lovely than Innistrad in autumn?

David, Damon, and Cavedan reunite for the final installment of our Midnight Hunt set review. Useful one mana effects with flashback, flexible utility spells, and tempting build-arounds cap off one of the most surprising preview seasons we have seen in a while. There’s tons of sleeper picks and best-in-class effects, but few cards that obviously slot into existing archetypes. In other words, it’s a brewer’s paradise. The set releases online today and Crimson Vow is just six short weeks away so that means it’s time to get to work!
