Deck Notes

Normally, once a card hits the graveyard, it has served its purpose. Sure you can dig it out with Golgari shenanigans, but that requires a specific build. This Izzet deck turns all that on its head. You want as many cards of as many types as possible sitting in your graveyard. Once you have four types (creature, instant, etc) in your graveyard, many of your cards power up. Plus, the more instants and sorceries you have, the stronger the titular Murktide Regent gets when it hits the field. With an arsenal of delirious dragons on your side, there isn’t much that can slow you down.


MTG is ever-changing, with new busted and broken cards rising to the top. Check back in next week for the upcoming top deck.

Oh hey! BoLS might make a little money if you decide to buy these items.
