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.

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!

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.
