It’s time for the last part of this mammoth list. The Brothers’ War just has so many good cards worth looking at and thinking about. Sure, some won’t knock everyone’s socks off, but even cards that feel like Limited chaff are actually powerful in the right decks.

The list continues, and we’re deep into it now. This is the part of the forty cards where the true power of The Brothers’ War starts to shine. We’ve got impactful reprints, brutal removal, and experimental cards that I’m excited to see played.
The Brothers’ War is the first set in a long time (maybe since Eldraine) with a high concentration of powerful and interesting cards. Every single format will be affected, and some might even warp.
Did anyone else feel we had a reasonable amount of time between Dominaria United and the last set? Because I’ve been excited about this one. Funnily, the set only introduced a few cards that specifically appealed, but I’m still pleased by the shakeup.
So, last week, we laid out the card choices; now, let’s talk about the average game with Mardu Pyromancer. Here’s what you’re trying to do.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a deck tech for a non-Phoenix build, but this was too sweet not to share. I made the deck on a whim, tried it out in Historic Bof1, and then busted heads. And now you can, too.
If you’ve read a lot of my Magic content, you’ll notice I’ve made Mythic a few times. I did it again this May. And, considering I would’ve wanted a guide on how to do it when I first started playing MTGA, I figured I’d make one.
The amount of powerful, playable Planeswalkers feels like it’s hit critical mass. Besides Ob Nixilis, we’ve got the new Elspeth and Vivien. But we already had Wrenn, Kaito, Sorin, Lolth, and The Wandering Emperor.
Streets of New Capenna came out recently, and it’s been great. I’m always fond of multicolored sets. For a player who likes power, the cards are always exciting. I’ve already logged a fair bit of hours with the new cards, and I wanted to give you my first impressions.
So, those are the card choices, but before you go off and play, let’s talk about what decks to look out for, and what upgrades might happen down the line with the upcoming set.
Longtime readers will know that I’m a big fan of the Arclight Phoenix deck. It’s popular and powerful in Historic on Arena and I use it to grind ranks. Getting lots of practice in has led me to make tons of tweaks and even a few deviations from any list you’ve probably seen.
