Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is full of cards with cycling, which means that old cycling payoffs like New Perspectives have a new lease on life.


The plan is simple. Nearly every card in the deck has cycling, so once you get New Perspectives into play, you can cycle through your entire deck for free. In the unlikely even that run out of cyclers in your hand, Shadow of the Grave will put everything you cycled back into your hand so you can start up again. Once your deck is empty, you win by smashing everyone's favorite new "I win" button, Thassa's Oracle.

Vizier of Tumbling Sands and Lotus Field are on hand to ramp you into New Perspectives, but beyond that, the deck is cycling filler. Just a box full of packing peanuts, offering no resistance as you rip through to New Perspectives.
