With the recent addition of Amonkhet Remastered, Historic has taken a massive turn. There are many cards from the set that have had a significant impact on the format, but none more so than Collected Company. Even though the set is labeled Amonkhet Remastered, there are cards not in Amonkhet at all that have been added in.

I could spend an entire article on the concept of adding cards to a set that don't really belong, but I'm not going to. The interesting part about it is you should be really confident Collected Company is a good addition to the format, to go out of the way to add it to the set. In the case of The Scarab God, for instance, it's acceptable if the card were ban-worthy because it was originally in Hour of Devastation. The same can be said for Hour of Promise. But in the case of Collected Company, this is a card that didn't need to be in Amonkhet Remastered.

This leads to the question: is the card too good for Historic? It's not a card I think gets banned in the near future, but removed down the line. Collected Company was great in Standard when it was legal. When you look at it through a Pioneer or Modern lens,it doesn't see an overwhelming amount of play. So, it starts to make sense to put it in Historic.

The issue with that, though, is Historic is not Pioneer. It still has a significantly smaller pool of cards to work with, and once you look at cards already heavily played before Amonkhet Remastered, the problem becomes clear. In my opinion, Jund Sacrifice was the top deck in Historic before the addition of Amonkhet Remastered. Collected Company goes well with the sacrifice creature package, or you can spin off the Jund theme a bit. First, though, let's take a look at the Jund Coco deck that seemed to gain popularity when Amonkhet was released:

There are a few different ways to build this deck, but this list is a successful one from the recent Hooglandia Open. Cauldron Familiar plus Witch's Oven is optional. The fact I'm saying that provides an idea as to the power level here. Other versions play Paradise Druid and Llanowar Elves instead, for more ramp toward Bolas's Citadel. Either way, though, there are plenty of Collected Company hits here, to make the card worth including.

Sometimes you get two three-drops like Woe Strider and Mayhem Devil off a Collected Company. Even if you get a Gilded Goose or a Cauldron Familiar, that's okay. But it's only in the rare situation you whiff completely there's a problem. Usually this is card advantage, and you get to cheat on mana a bit too, while putting two creatures in play. With the addition of Collected Company it no longer makes sense to play Trail of Crumbs. The card advantage you'd get is less necessary, and you want to make the deck dense with creatures that can be hit off a Collected Company.

There are many ways you can build around Collected Company, and it's easy to modify decks or shells of decks—even switching colors. We're seeing variations of the sacrifice-based decks with Collected Company. Bolas's Citadel is a powerful card to ramp into, and it turns out Mayhem Devil—and red in general—is not totally necessary. Leave it to Crokeyz to find a build like this one:

This is about as far as you can get away from the sacrifice theme, but still have the combo kill with Bolas's Citadel. There are definitely interchangeable pieces to this type of strategy. The Collected Company and Bolas's Citadel package means if you cast a Collected Company and hit mana creatures, they'l still ramp to a Bolas's Citadel. Woe Strider is the perfect way to sacrifice creatures at will, and set up the top card of your deck once Bolas's Citadel gets into play.

The deck wants a creature that benefits off sacrifices, gains you some life, and allows for a one-shot kill from a single activation of Bolas's Citadel. This is why Blood Artist is the perfect card.Get multiples into play alongside a Woe Strider, and start sacrificing mana creatures for value. This is the maximum amount of mana creatures the deck can play, so having ways to sacrifice them for value later in games is important.

Bastion of Remembrancer

Bastion of Remembrance may seem a bit underpowered, but it's another way to help you kill the opponent. The Golgari colors provide access to plenty of strong sideboard options too, with Thoughtseize being the newest addition. The base of these decks is black-green, and I don't see that changing—so the question is whether a splash makes sense.

So, the best strategy in Historic before Amonkhet Remastered got even better because of Collected Company. This is always dangerous—the goal when adding cards to a format should be to help the less-played decks. Players are no longer runningthe old Jund Food decks. Collected Company is the way of the future until it's suspended or banned. However, I want to look outside the sacrifice strategies, and talk about a brew of my own I've had success with. Collected Company is a card that works well in tribal creature decks, and decks that play a lot of creatures in general.

I've seen the card make its way into many Historic decks including Elves and Merfolk, but the deck I want to talk about is a take on Bant Spirits. Generally, the more creatures you have, the better Collected Company is. And these strategies want their deck to be almost all creatures anyway. This deck is a mix between Azorius Fliers and Spirits:

I wish the manabase was better, and maybe there's a way to improve it. Right now, three-color aggressive decks have challenges because of mana. When we compare it to Bant Spirits in Pioneer, for instance, we see the impact of a card like Botanical Sanctum. Still, Collected Company is a splash here, so you don't need to prioritize green mana as much. I look at this as Azorius Fliers, with Collected Company added on. I think it's worth playing Collected Company in this deck, because of how much it raises the power level.

I've been winning a lot with the deck, despite its flaws. Being able to Collected Company into multiple lords is almost always going to win the game. While we're missing some key Spirits compared to the Pioneer version, that's okay. Not all creatures need to be Spirits to be worth playing. For instance, Watcher of the Spheres allows the creatures to snowball. In my first version, I didn't have Watcher of the Spheres, but I quickly added it and haven't looked back.

Azorius Fliers was a reasonable deck to play before Amonkhet Remastered, so this is another example of improving a deck that already existed by adding Collected Company. It's also the sort of deck that easily gets under the more combo-based strategies. Rally of Wings allows for quick kills, and Lofty Denial stops a key spell on the later turns. In this deck, Lofty Denial is mostly a hard counterspell, so there'll be times when you want four copies after sideboard.

The trick is keeping the creature count up to make Collected Company a better card in the deck. That's why most of the sideboard cards are creatures. This way you can change your creature base without lowering the amount of creatures. Deputy of Detention and Knight of Autumn are powerful Collected Company hits in the right matchups, but play better in a Bant "good stuff" sort of deck. Since they aren't flyers or Spirits, I'll cut Rally of Wings and some Supreme Phantoms, as the deck sacrifices some synergy for power.

Collected Company makes creature-based decks in the format better, and maybe that's a good thing. If it weren't for Bolas's Citadel, I think it would be fine for the format. As is,there are a lot of decks that benefit from playing this card. I'm worried about control and combo decks that aren't creature-based. Right now, Collected Company and ramp strategies in general have been impressive. My next major event is the Mythic Invitational, which is a tournament that should highlight a lot of what's going on in the format.
