Modern Horizons / Core 2020, Episode 13: Kiora, Niv-Mizzet, Kolaghan’s Command
Faithless Looting is gone, and our beloved “non-rotating” format is in upheaval once again. Tournament results are trickling in, but in the Magic Online leagues, it’s the Wild West: everyone has dusted off their midrange decks, hoping that strategies that have always fared poorly will finally get a chance to breathe in a graveyard-free Modern. It is a great time to be a brewer.
With seemingly endless possibilities to explore, this week the crew revisits some old favorites: Faithless Brews that were powerful before Modern Horizons, but couldn’t keep up with the madness of Hogaak Summer. We discuss new builds of RG Kiora Dragons, Rainbow Niv-Mizzet, and old school Grixis Control. Are these old challengers ready to compete for the top tier of the new Modern? Let’s discuss!
