No time to waste today. Let's get into it.
Standard's control deck of choice went from Jeskai to Esper with the release of Ravnica Allegiance.
People actually play this card in their sideboards! To cast! What a world. I wonder how much traction Venerable Monk would get in Ravnica Allegiance Standard.
Corbin made a video about this card!
From an editorial perspective, it's always nice when Light Up the Stage and Skewer the Critics are right next to each other on the Top 10. The two cards go together like peanut butter and chocolate.
Call me crazy, but I feel like the Flying Man that grows to a 5/5 for (potentially) one mana could be good. I really get the sense that there's something here.
Search for Azcanta
Dawn of Hope
History of Benalia
Rhythm of the Wild
The Eldest Reborn
The Mirari Conjecture
That's a long list.
Holy smokess, Persistent Petitioners isn't #1! What could #1 be?!?!
Oh. Well, that makes sense, I suppose.
See you next week!
