This deck can easily and routinely jump ahead two turns at a time in mana advantage and cast something big before they can respond to it.
As I tend to do when a new set comes out, I wanted to give my first impressions of Kaldheim. I wanted to cover what I think might happen with it in Standard and Historic (the two modes I play the most.)
And, as a happy and average player, I want to describe the appeal of the F.I.R.E. (“fun,” “inviting,” “replayable,” and “exciting”) philosophy.
The current standard is one of the most balanced we’ve had in a while. It took a ton of bannings, a lot of failed experiments, but WOTC has gotten it to a good place.

In a very different Meta Report, I’m going to only be talking about four decks today. With the results coming out of Worlds, and simply being on the higher parts of MTGA’s ladder, I can tell you that you need to be prepared for these specific four decks—or you will lose to them. Azorius Control:…
