Magic: the Gathering
Relic of Progenitusbrought new airs to the format, improving certain meta decks and solidifying others, as we will see below. The complete list of Anthology V cards can be seen on here.
Into the North.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobiteenters the deck to break Bant's mirror or against decks that are a little slower with creatures, or that can't handle it well, as is the case of Jund Food. On the sideboard we have
Relic of Progenitusfor graveyard hate and whoever plays Pauper knows how effective this card is.
Atarka's Command. The Command fits very well in the deck for not letting opponents gain life in the turn, dealing 3 damage to each opponent or giving +1/+1 to your creatures until the end of the turn, being an extremely aggressive card for a deck that has an aggressive proposal. As we have
Shockand Checklands in the format, the mana base is no problem and this enables another good card to burn,
Klothys, God of Destiny.
Atarka's Commandto add to Gruul Aggro, which makes even more sense as it is as aggressive card as the archetype. It is a very straight and redundant deck in its proposal to end the game as quickly as possible and the Command can be used as a burn or pump spell.
Dromoka's Command, that can remove creatures or advance
The Great Hengeby one turn. However, it is not a good card to have two copies standing in your hand, as it requires you to have creatures on the board to be effective. The option to sacrifice an enchantment is not so good, but it can help against a Klothys,
Experimental Frenzyand other problematic enchantments. The deck remains as one of the best in the format with this addition.
Kolaghan's Command. The possibility of destroying a
Graffdigger's Cage, returning a creature to the hand, or dealing 2 damage to target creature or player makes the card excellent in strategy, especially post-side, because it is another removal spell for the Cage or
Soul-Guide Lantern, the main graveyard hates of the format.
Dragonstormor tokens/artifact decks with Elesh Norn, but the focus here has been competitive decks. Archetypes such as Izzet Phoenix, Mono Black Aggro, Jeskai Control and Jund Food did not show any changes with the new set. Some Jund lists use
Grisly Savage, but none of them did well in tournaments last weekend. That's it for today! I hope you enjoyed the lists with Anthology V. Any questions, suggestions or comments, you can leave in the comments downwards. See you soon!
