Zendikar Rising has now been in play for over a month, but its impact on the Modern metagame continues to deepen.

Beyond the shock of the modal double-faced cards creating new no-lands combo decks, the most immediately influential card was Skyclave Apparition. It suddenly brought Death and Taxes to the next level as a top contender, put Spirits back into the spotlight, and found itself as a one-of in the creature toolboxes of just about everyone playing tutors like Eladamri's Call.

It's hard to understate just how important Skyclave Apparition is. We're seeing it further permeate the format by elevating all varieties of white decks. Previously borderline decks like Heliod Counters are now truly competitive. It has even brought about a fundamental shift in the balance of power between Jund and Abzan Midrange.

There's also a handful of other cards that have been slower to see adoption, but are now on the rise as Modern staples. Scourge of the Skyclaves has emerged from Death's Shadow... shadow to headline its own deck. Magmatic Channeler has appeared as a replacement to Faithless Looting to revive Mardu Control. Tajuru Paragon and even Nissa of Shadowed Boughs are being used in Elves. Cantrips Confounding Conundrum and Cleansing Wildfire as being utilized in unexpected ways. Players are starting to really make the most of Zendikar Rising's potential in Modern.

Today I'll take a deeper look at all these new Zendikar Rising cards and the decks using them.

Mono-White Counters with Skyclave Apparition

Skyclave Apparition is fundamentally a very strong card, but it's at its best in decks that can take full advantage of it in some way, like Death and Taxes with its Aether Vial and blink effects, or Spirits tribal with its creature type.

Along with those are decks that benefit from devotion to white, like those using Heliod, Sun-Crowned and its combo with Walking Ballista. Since Ballista's ban in Pioneer this had settled in as a solid but decidedly second-tier Modern strategy. Now with Skyclave Apparition adding a versatile removal spell and a healthy dose of devotion, the deck has risen into a legitimate contender, including a Challenge win.

Luminarch Aspirant has added another new toy for the strategy. It does great work with Walking Ballista, which converts those counters to damage and shoots down opposing creatures and planeswalkers. It also adds directly to the combo kill with its ability to add a counter to Walking Ballista for no mana. A curve of turn-two Luminarch Aspirant into turn-three Heliod, Sun-Crowned into turn-four 1/1 Walking Ballista, which Aspirant makes a 2/2 during combat, leaves two mana available to give Ballista lifelink and combo kill. This line speeds up the combo by a full turn.

It's also just a strong card for what boils down to a moderately aggressive white creature deck, helping others push through combat and being a threat opponents must respect or eventually lose to. It's easy to overlook amid so many strong cards printed in the set and over the past two years, but history will show Luminarch Aspirant should be counted among them.

Abzan with Skyclave Apparition

I never expected Skyclave Apparition to bring back Abzan, which has a long history in Modern as a counterpart to Jund and at times has been the premier black-green midrange deck in the field. Now it can be seen again, and is showing competitiveness with finishes like a preliminary 4-1.

Skyclave Apparition adds a versatile removal spell, similar to archetype staple Maelstrom Pulse, but with the added value of a body. Every threat counts, but the body is especially valuable as a backup carrier for Stoneforge Mystic equipment.. It adds a good, cheap threat to use with Lurrus of the Dream-Den, which is the final incentive to embrace a heavy white deck. Lurrus is castable in a Jund deck, but in Abzan there's no awkwardness, with Temple Garden and Plains getting the job done.

Eldrazi Taxes with Skyclave Apparition

When Skyclave Apparition was fresh I took note of an alternative Abzan deck using it as an exile effect alongside Wasteland Strangler. An Orzhov version cracked the Top 4 on Saturday.

This is essentially just a Death and Taxes deck splashing Wasteland Strangler as removal and Tidehollow Sculler as a discard effect. Both are strong additions to the disruptive creature deck, and with the new Brightclimb Pathway making splashes easier than ever before, the deck makes a strong case for its choices.

The strong manabase enables Eldrazi Temple to make the most of Wasteland Strangler, which is one advantage over Abzan, while also supporting Thought-Knot Seer as an added exile effect.

Death and Taxes has also gone down a different route with another new tool, Confounding Conundrum.

Beyond hosing land acceleration and even delaying the activation of fetch lands, Confounding Conundrum increases the utility of Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin like an alternative version of Leonin Arbiter. Activate them after the opponent has played a land, and any lands they search up will bounce another to their hand.

It's not the same crushing loss of value as Leonin Arbiter, but it's still a nasty play to erase land drops and set the opponent far back in their development. It's also a reliable way to draw a card with Flickerwisp, which often generates no value otherwise. It was good enough to drive the deck all the way to the finals of the most recent Challenge.

The deck also includes a full playset of Glasspool Mimic, which is proving itself as one of the most important cards of Zendikar Rising. Beyond the mythic double-faced cards that can be played untapped and fill the no-lands decks, Glasspool Mimic is the best of the bunch, and its high utility as a real spell means it might be best of all of them in any normal deck. It's perfect in these sort of Aether Vial decks, especially when it's helping a splash.

Jund with Scourge of the Skyclaves

During spoiler season and immediately when Zendikar Rising was released, the most hyped new card for Modern was Scourge of the Skyclaves.

The complex card was simple to understand as another version of Death's Shadow, and they were combined to create a new breed of the deck.

Now a new version of the deck gives up Death's Shadow completely and makes the case that Scourge of the Skyclaves is the superior card.Winning a Modern Challenge last weekend is a strong argument.

Scourge of the Skyclaves requires self-inflicted damage, but it doesn't require going the same extreme as Death's Shadow. Where Death's Shadow requires going down to 12 life before it can be cast, Scourge can come down as early as turn two. At this point hitting the opponent will help grow it, so long as you keep pace with the deck's self-damage, and it can quickly grow out of hand.

The deck uses Hexdrinker as an early threat to enable Scourge of the Skyclaves. Some other lists use Knight of the Ebon Legion in this spot, but I like the high potential of Hexdrinker as long as I'm not running into too many Wrenn and Six. The deck takes brilliant advantage of the planeswalker as an extra way to ping the opponent and enable Scourge of the Skyclaves. It's also another threat to cast with Lurrus of the Dream-Den, which caps off the deck with its ability to reuse Scourge.

Mardu Midrange with Magmatic Channeler

Magmatic Channeler was identified early for its potential in Modern and Legacy. It was immediately jammed into various spell-heavy decks, like Jund Death's Shadow and Grixis Control, but it didn't stick. Most decks abandoned it just as quickly as they added it. Death's Shadow decks have more potent threat options, and Grixis Control has a more powerful looter in Jace, Vryn's Prodigy. Neither of these decks use the graveyard well either—not like the Mardu Midrange deck that's making the most of Magmatic Channeler.

Mardu was once a popular Modern deck, but it died for the sins of Faithless Looting. Called the Brainstorm of Modern, Looting was the glue that held the deck together. Magmatic Channeler offers some of the same card selection critical to the deck's reactive disruption-based game plan, as well as some graveyard value with Lingering Souls and Smiting Helix—which the deck picked up just before the ban.

Without Faithless Looting to trigger it, the deck gives up Young Pyromancer. Magmatic Channeler fills in the slot as a two-mana threat, but the token aspect is retained by the use of Seasoned Pyromancer.

It adds a loot ability of its own with and value from the graveyard, so it's a perfect card for the strategy—and an ideal pairing with Magmatic Channeler. This combination makes a ton of sense, and is a package of creatures other decks should start exploring.

Elves with Tajuru Paragon

With an aggressive body and two of Zendikar Rising's main themes, party and kicker, Tajuru Paragon stood out during spoiler season as a card that was pushed for playability. It's designed to help complete a party, but its additional Elf creature type turns it into a powerful card selection tool in a tribal deck, where it can find any Elf—including more copies of itself for a chain of value.

It has been picked up in Modern Elves, and battled to the Top 4 of a Challenge.

The deck also plays a pair of Nissa of Shadowed Boughs. I was scratching my head confused about that at first, but it has started to make more sense. For one, there are fetch lands in Modern, which means Nissa can reanimate a creature and stick around at 1 loyalty the turn it enters play. The deck has some solid targets that generate value, with Shaman of the Pack being the most threatening. With another two-mana 3-powered threat joining the deck, it's more aggressive than ever, so the added threat is valuable. It's particularly strong for pressuring planeswalkers against control decks.

Jeskai Control with Cleansing Wildfire

I also want to shout out Cleansing Wildfire and its combo with Flagstones of Trokair, which makes it something like a Boros Rampant Growth that cantrips—and we all know how good Growth Spiral is. Add in that Cleansing Wildfire hoses Urzatron and creature lands, and you have a great card. It's being used in various Boros Prison-style decks, but is more exciting in Jeskai Control.

Jeskai Control has always wanted land hosers, and would often play Spreading Seas in the past, so Cleansing Wildfire fills in a valuable role in addition to its synergy with Flagstones of Trokair. It adds access to quality mana acceleration and fixing it never had without green previously. It even has synergy with Snapcaster Mage.

Oops, All Spells Gets a Makeover

The Oops, All Spells deck enabled by ZNR has two main variants: a Gruul Goblin Charbelcher deck, and a black-based version with Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer. The Gruul version is more volatile, while the black version's convoluted kill with graveyard creatures is less powerful and easier to disrupt.

A new version has now appeared, which uses Selective Memory to shed cards from the deck and set up a clean Thassa's Oracle kill.

In a deck with no lands, Selective Memory is essentially a one-card kill that wins the following turn with Thassa's Oracle—or the same turn with the help of Opt or Teferi, Time Raveler. If this was the only combo piece, the deck would be less consistent than the other versions, but Goblin Charbelcher fills in as another kill. It's mana intensive and probably won't kill until the following turn, but that's what the deck is planning on with Selective Memory anyways.

Beyond its power, the real advantage of this version over the others is that it doesn't require playing a bunch of graveyard creatures that are poor to draw, or rituals at risk of being useless. Instead it's mostly actual Magic cards, including card selection and a ton of countermagic.

Disrupting Shoal is a genius addition in the context of the double-faced cards that provide pitch fodder where lands would have once been. Take note, this technology could be used even in fair blue decks, and turns Disrupting Shoal into the true Force of Will it has always strived to be.
