«A Liquor Never Brewed … Dark, Spicy Decks For Semicompetitive Play»
“From The Ashes”
Sometimes dragons slumber for a while. Perhaps they are full from a great kill, or grow weary of the centuries of knowledge rattling around in their ancient heads. Their pristine senses have gone over every intricate detail of their horde one too many times. When they do, the future is not uncertain - the course of action is already determined. They will wake up. The only variance is the time, which is ultimately inconsequential to the dragon.

So, as of right now we have 107/274 cards spoiled from Return to Ravnica. I’d have to say this standard is going to be amazing, two really good blocks together is always so much fun.
Not to mention I really love Ravnica, 1.0 was amazing, and 2.0 is shaping up to be amazing too. I think they are and always will be my favorite magic sets, INN close second and now we have both in standard at the same time. RTR will also give us cross format staples too for sure.
But for now, here’s some decklists I’ve been brewing with what we have spoiled so far.
I’m thinking control wont really shape up until the rotation meta settles, so I think Aggro/Mid-range will be the way to go for the first few weeks. Though I probably will be playing some form of Junk because I think it has so many options and I’m not riding the Bonfire of the Damned Jund train.
