In today's article, let's review the five best cards from The Brothers' War for Modern!Edit Article
Honorable Mention — Arcane Proxy
5 — Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor
4 — Myrel, Shield of Argive
3 — Phyrexian Fleshgorger
Tron. When Phyrexian Fleshgorger is summoned for that cost, which on Tron means just three lands, the Menace will gets stronger, Lifelink gives more life, and its Ward will practically become a Hexproof. Words fail me to describe how amazing this card can be as an out in the deck that always has a better topdeck, something that Tron always masters. Phyrexian Fleshgorger can be wonderful for the deck, perhaps helping to give it a boost, as a variable for the already known Wurmcoil Engine, or even as an additional threat on its sideboard to fetch with Karn.
2 — Haywire Mite
exilenon-creature artifacts and enchantments for the low cost of one mana, which immediately indicates its ability to deal with Urza's Saga and all the by-products from it for a low cost. Decks like Hammer Time, which are at the top of the Metagame, suffers by having many targets against it, such as Colossus Hammer, Batterskull and since it exiles and doesn't destroy, it can even take Kaldra Compleat present in the deck or deal with dangerous threats from other strategies, such as Heliod, Sun-Crowned, when it usually isn't a creature. A low-cost exile is always an extremely versatile and welcome ability, as seen in Swords to Plowshares, but when attached to a body that can be sacrificed, such as in Sakura-Tribe Elder it is possible to create great plays where damage is prevented through blocks and the creature sacrificed soon after. Combined with the fact it can be found by Urza's Saga and Karn, the Great Creator makes this one a standout card for Modern.
1 — Diabolic Intent
any card, putting it in your hand. Therefore, we can consider the card as a great tutor. And, making it clear early on, a good tutor is strong in any format. The ability to search your deck for any card and put it in your hand, or even on top of it, is atrocious against your opponents, especially when it comes to cards with no limitations. The possibility to choose from a land that you need and up to a card that will define your game, like a Temur Battle Rage, is impressive.
