Historic Set Review: JumpStart Historic Horizons
Historic Horizons comes out on August 12th, exclusively for the Magic Arena. Today, we review the cards in the set for the Historic format, and what we can expect from the future.
Conjureisn't even close to being as good as it could be, although its two main cards may see play in some decks, as Shoreline Scout serves as a good manafixing for Merfolks and Tome of the Infinite generates value every turn, albeit in a completely random manner.
Seek, which allows you to randomly search your deck for a card with specific conditions. I believe the mechanic can be abused in the future if there are combos that fit the specs of their respective cards because of the possibility of manipulating deckbuilding to get the obvious result with the ability. Suppose there is a two-card combo involving Elf-type creatures costing 2 or less, you could use both Freyalise and Manor Guardian to “tutor” the cards, while making room for other means of interaction in the game. Currently, that doesn't seem to be the case, but
Seekis the mechanic that Wizards needs to be meticulous not to break.
