Magic's new Dungeons and Dragons-themed crossover Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is one of the most highly anticipated sets ever, and some of its flavorful cards are destined to make an impact in Modern. It comes right on the heels of Modern Horizons 2, which has shaped up to be the most important set ever for the format. That's a tough act to follow, but this newest release is already making an impact of its own. 

The set was released last week on Magic Online, and now with a weekend of big events in the books, we've seen which cards have already emerged as strong playables. From its minor role-players to major additions elevating decks to the next level, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms has arrived in Modern.

1. Izzet Phoenix - Demilich

One of the most hyped cards during spoiler season was Demilich, which some even compared to Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath because of its Escape-like ability to be cast from the graveyard, plus potential for repeated card advantage each attack. Demilich goes even further with a cost-reduction clause, and is castable for as little as no mana in the right deck.

All this adds up to what could be a truly broken card in the right home, and none looks better than Izzet Arclight Phoenix. It's already set up to fill the graveyard AND cast multiple instant and sorcery spells in one turn to make the most of Demilich.

Demilich acts a lot like four more copies of Arclight Phoenix in this strategy, and that makes it more consistent than ever. Anyone that has played with or against this strategy knows that it can be extremely powerful when multiple Arclight Phoenix appear, or does nothing but spin its wheels when it doesn't. Now with double the action, it's a lot more likely to put something together. The recent addition of Dragon's Rage Channeler super-charges things further with a powerful enabler and threat, so now is a great time to revisit Izzet Phoenix.

2. Hammer Time - Ingenious Smith

One of the big winners from Modern Horizons 2 was the "Hammer Time" deck. It gained Urza's Saga to find its namesake Colossus Hammer, along with the support of Esper Sentinel.

It has now made another major pickup with Ingenious Smith, which adds card advantage to a threatening body that can grow each turn.

Ingenious Smith isn't quite Stoneforge Mystic, but it does help dig towards Colossus Hammer. With so many artifacts in the deck, it's likely to find something, making it a consistent source of card advantage. As a two-drop, it can be cast again with Lurrus of the Dream Den for even more value. 

The body it adds is vital in a deck based around equipment, but with the potential to grow, it's a great threat even without one. It's also uniquely valuable as a non-artifact threat, making it a great way to fight back against the artifact hosers that are becoming increasingly popular. 

Hammer Time has been on the rise since MH2, but this latest addition has pushed it over the top into one of the clear best decks in Modern. It followed up a 3rd-place finish in Saturday's Challenge by dominating on Sunday, taking 3rd and 4th place and winning outright. 

3. Mill - Tasha's Hideous Laughter

Historically, the Mill strategy hasn't been the most popular or successful in Modern. That said, it has vastly improved over the past couple years, and has quietly become a very competitive strategy. It just recently received a major addition from MH2 in Fractured Sanity, followed by an even more potent mill spell in Tasha's Hideous Laughter.

Instead of milling a set number of cards, Tasha's Hideous Laughter adds up a set amount of mana cost. That comes with a bit of randomness, but with that, an incredible potential. In a format like Modern where decks are full of cheap and efficient spells, it's easy to see how it could mill a huge amount.  

The math will be different for  every opponent, but pound for pound it shapes up to be the most powerful mill card available. SaffronOlive over at MTGGoldfish did a deeper analysis, and found it averages over 20 cards against some opponents, like Death's Shadow or the land-heavy Amulet Titan deck. That's a massive chunk of cards, comparable to something like a burn spell that deals 6 or 7 damage to the opponent, and one that has brought Mill to the next level.

4. Urza Thopter Sword - Portable Hole

Urza, Lord High Artificer broke out as one of the best cards from Modern Horizons and seemed to dominate the format for a while, especially with its infinite combo with the Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek.  Then the ban of Mox Opal slowed it down, and Oko, Thief of Crowns removed a powerful tool, and it all but disappeared. But it's still a powerful strategy, and Urza's Saga has brought it back into the picture with another source of Construct tokens combined with a tutor.

Now it has gained a flexible and efficient removal spell in Portable Hole, an Oblivion Ring-style exile spell against cheap permanents, one tutorable by Urza's Saga and Whir of Invention, and one that generates mana with Urza.

With the help of its excellent new removal spell, this list made the top 8 of a Challenge last weekend, and represents the strategy's official return to Modern as a real contender. 

5. No-Land Belcher - You Find a Cursed Idol

The new Venture mechanic brings players into the Dungeon for a real D&D experience. It looks more like a fun addition to the limited format than a new tool in constructed — especially not Modern — but infamous deck designer Sodeq has already put it to use in their new version of the Goblin Charbelcher strategy.

You Find a Cursed Idol generates a Treasure token, making it a weak acceleration spell, when combined with a trip into the Dungeon. The go-to is Lost Mine of Phandelver, which offers a Scry trigger. That doesn't sound too bad in a deck designed to find a specific card and cast it as soon as possible, but it's still not quite good enough to play. In reality, it's mostly played to help enable Indomitable Creativity with an artifact to turn into Goblin Charbelcher, adding some excellent redundancy to the deck.

Sodeq is well known for working on the Belcher deck (and other similarly unfair decks) in Modern. They are truly an authority on the subject and someone to pay attention to if this deck is your cup of tea. The printing of Strike in Rich in MH2 first brought attention to this version, and now You Find a Cursed Idol has made Indomitable Creativity better than ever.

6. Death and Taxes - Cave of the Frost Dragon

Adventures in the Forgotten Realms has ushered in an excellent new cycle of creature lands. Rather than fixing mana like more recent versions, the new cycle brings back memory of the original one-color cycle in Urza's Legacy, but with the upgrade of not being tapped in the early turns. They're a potential asset to a wide variety of decks, but the early winner is Cave of the Frost Dragon, which adds a new threat to white aggro decks like Death and Taxes.

At five mana to activate, Cave of the Frost Dragon won't be used early and often, but as a 3-power flyer, it will hit hard when it does. It's a lot like Celestial Colonnade in one color, and it packs some real value into the mana base for little cost, given that it will be untapped when it matters. Add the potential to wear equipment in a deck like this, and it really starts to shine.

This specific list is unique for also using Urza's Saga, adding further value to the manabase. It also benefits from Solitude as a great removal spell, source of value, and potential synergy with Flickerwisp. With a 4-0 in a Preliminary event, it's also very competitive.

In a land-based deck capable of making a massive amount of mana, Lair of the Hydra adds a whole new dynamic at almost no cost. It's a nice minor quality-of-life upgrade for a deck that recently had a major one with Urza's Saga.

There's More to Come

Other lands in the new cycle also look playable, with Hall of the Storm Giants already showing up in blue decks as a massive threat. There's definitely some potential in the aptly-named Wish, which offers more sideboard access than predecessors like Fae of Wishes that restrict access to specific card types. Treasure Vault adds another untapped artifact land to Affinity decks, and that's not even considering its potential use as a source of Treasure Tokens. Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is really just getting started, and it's going to be fun to see what other cards venture out of the dungeon and into Modern decks.
