Strixhaven was just released, but it's already clear some excellent new staples will see play in Modern for years to come. A number of its cards have been showing up in a wide variety of top decks—and they're winning. From the testing ground of Leagues, to competitive Preliminary events, to high-stakes Modern Challenges, Strixhaven has been thriving.

Identifying these new powerhouses ASAP provides a competitive advantage over the opponents that aren't up to speed, but also an advantage on the market. From a financial perspective, like building decks on any sort of budget, there's opportunity to catch staples cheap and buy them before the market catches on and drives up the price.

Strixhaven is especially great for building on a budget since many of the biggest Modern standouts are uncommon and even common. With the market flooding with product after release, some of these are available for spare change.

Thrilling Discovery

Playset Price: $0.56

Thrilling Discovery is Strixhaven's star common for Modern, where it's become an instant staple in Dredge. It joins Cathartic Reunion as four more copies of the most powerful enabler the deck has access to. With the deck now more explosive than ever, it's seen a real resurgence in popularity and results.

In terms of a budget-buy for a Modern collection, Thrilling Discovery is a no-brainer.

Expressive Iteration

Playset Price: $1.32

In terms of cost to what it does and future potential, there's no better budget bargain buy in Strixhaven right now than Expressive Iteration. This Prismari uncommon is pushed to the limit in terms of power, combining a blue selection effect like Telling Time with temporary red card draw. The potential for a two-for-one, plus the card selection, makes this a uniquely powerful card. And one playable in formats back to Vintage. Night's Whisper is a real staple there, and Expressive Iteration can be much better. In fact I lost my quarterfinals match of the Challenge last weekend to someone playing it (and Storm-Kiln Artist X_X).

As a deck full of cheap spells, it's perfectly positioned to get a two-for-one from the card. It offers potential to chain together multiple spells and quickly overwhelm the opponent with prowess triggers. It's an especially strong addition, because it's a deck that otherwise lacked real card advantage, and could easily run out of steam. This keeps the action going for longer.

Of course the effect is desirable in all sorts of decks (like Vintage ones with lots zero-cost Mox), and has shown up in others in Modern. It looks like a nice incentive to re-explore a forgotten archetype—Grixis Death's Shadow—with a zero-drop artifact of its own in Mishra's Bauble.

Recasting Expressive Iteration with Snapcaster Mage sounds like a very good time.

With a price point just over a quarter, there's really no better bargain in Magic right now.

Clever Lumimancer

Playset Price: $5.84

It's easy to see the power of Clever Lumimancer. For years one-mana prowess creatures have been among the premier aggressive threats in Magic. Magecraft is a very similar effect, and Clever Lumimancer offers it on a one-drop body. What's different is its ludicrous +2/+2 bonus for each spell, making it twice as broken and abusable. It's a card worth splashing white for, and has shifted some Mono-Red and Izzet Prowess players to Boros.

The deck has been popular and successful, with a Challenge Top 8 already, and could challenge Izzet for the most popular. White also opens access to Lurrus of the Dream-Den, surely a tremendous advantage. I even wonder if we'll see a Jeskai version with both Clever Lumimancer and Expressive Iteration emerge. At the very least, it's a great time to be a Prowess player. Clever Lumimancer isn't a secret and it's not cheap for an uncommon, but over the long-term it's a bargain for such a powerful Modern staple that will pay off for years.

Leonin Lightscribe

Playset Price: $1.88

Clever Lumimancer is joined in Boros Prowess by Leonin Lightscribe, which offers its own powerful form of magecraft. Pumping all creatures acts much like +2/+2 if joined by one other, but gets even better with three or more creatures. It's not the best on its own, but at least it's another efficient prowess creature, and one worth playing in the Boros deck.

Where Leonin Lightscribe starts to get really exciting is in decks built to abuse the "copy" part of magecraft with storm spells. Along with Nivmagus Elemental to abuse the copies, Flusterstorm and Ground Rift become massive pump spells. They combine to make this deck feel a lot like Infect or Splinter Twin when it's firing on all cylinders.

Leonin Lightscribe has a lot of potential, and it's also a nice bargain under $0.50 each.

Prismari Command

Playset Price: $11.16

On Magic Online, the most expensive card in Strixhaven is Prismari Command, likely because it's a flexible staple playing in every format—Modern included. In paper it's a real bargain around $3, and a great pickup for any collection.

In Modern it's seeing play in Blue Moon type control decks as a new tool in the Izzet arsenal. It's especially great in more combo-oriented decks where it can discard extra pieces, like those with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos, or this one with Through the Breach and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

Silverquill Silencer

Playset Price: $1.88

Silverquill Silencer is another quality hoser to come out of Strixhaven. Strategically it's similar to Meddling Mage in effect, restricting access to a card or severely punishing them for using it. It could also be compared to Eidolon of the Great Revel as a punishing threat, so it's great in an aggressive deck like Humans, which has picked up a couple copies.

Strixhaven is Strong in Modern

I've heard a lot of complaints that Strixhaven isn't having a big impact in Standard, but things are different in Modern. A cardpool with so many cards and viable decks ensures that if a new card has potential, it's going to be unlocked and find itself a home somewhere. The cards I picked today are an example of that—not necessarily good on their own, but elevated to excellent cards with the right support. In turn, the decks that include them have gained incredible new tools and become better than before.
