Modern Horizons 2 / Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, Episode 12: Roundup + Set Review
Four weeks into Modern Horizons 2 season, our favorite format may have a new best deck: Rakdos Lurrus, starring Dragon’s Rage Channeler, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Dauthi Voidwalker, Unholy Heat, and even a couple copies of Tourach, Dread Cantor. There’s nothing tricksy about this deck, it’s just a brutally efficient pile of the most pushed threats and efficient removal that the format has to offer.
Trophied the next league too!! 44-6 with the deck. Also Hit a personal record of 15 matches in a row won on stream! Great day, looking forward to the tournament tomorrow https://t.co/2LG588Hvtw— Aspiringspike (@MoughonEvart) June 25, 2021
If this play style doesn’t appeal to you, there is another tremendous option that could scratch your itch: Glimpse of Tomorrow cascade, a new combo deck that can put its entire deck onto the battlefield by turn 3!
My take on Glimpse combo. A few ideas are from @AndyAWKWARD— SodekMTG (@MtgSodek) June 29, 2021
– The deck is real and you should respect it
-3 cmc slot: Tireless Provisioner is the best. Tireless Tracker and Seasoned Pyro tied, Risen Reef sucks.
-I like having more than 8 cascade spells.
Modern is a wild place right now, but that doesn’t mean the other formats can’t get in on the fun. Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is almost here, and we’ve got two dozen previews to sort through featuring some of the wildest mechanics Magic has ever seen. How good is a Dungeon, really? David has some helpful heuristics for understanding the “Venture into the dungeon” mechanic, and we take a look at some of the other most promising previews for Modern, Pioneer, and HIstoric play.
