Season 11, Episode 7: Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset (Brew Session)
The newest incarnation of Teferi has lots of text but very subtle power. Much depends on the +1 loyalty activation: it can untap up to three targets, or tap up to three targets, while also gaining you 2 life. Untapping mana sources can be powerful (see: Teferi, Hero of Dominaria) but the new Teferi makes you work for it. Mana sources on creatures or artifacts are required to regularly get 2 mana out of each +1 activation. But if you can pull it off, the rewards are spectacular.
Teferi might be most at home in a ramp shell, but that’s not all we can do with the card. Certain artifacts and creatures convert untaps into even more resources, such as Emry, Lurker of the Loch or even Pyromancer’s Goggles. There’s even an infinite combo with Lithoform Engine, which is legal in Standard no less.
David has some ideas for putting Teferi’s temporal skills to good use in Pioneer, looking for artifact sources of mana or special lands like Lotus Field that reward you handsomely when you untap them. We also contemplate which build could make the jump into Modern, before closing out with our Picks of the Week.
