There’s been a week-long spoiler party for the upcoming MTG expansion, Amonkhet, and alla y’all invited. Mark, Devon, and Szpirs chew over the latest spoilers and the HUGE NEWS about what this set means for Standard – and the top tier decks that own it.
Devon: Hot news – Battle for Zenikar is not rotating out of Standard! Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has changed how rotation works and are going back to the once-a-year model. Standard will be BfZ through through AMN until 2018, then the Zendikar and Innistrad blocks will both rotate out at the same time.
Szpirs: That’s insane! I think that’ll make most Standard players happy.
Devon: We have this huge card pool in Standard right now and I hope, as a result, the stagnation of the format is resolved.
Mark: Like how there’s only one or two winning decks in the whole format?
Devon: Yeah, basically. I’m really happy about it I get another year with cards like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Liliana, the Last Hope just to name two of my favourites.
Szpirs: What are the key adds that you see in the spoilers?
Welp, that’s it for today, Geeks. What do you think the up-and-coming deck types will be in Amonkhet? Leave a comment and have a Magical Monday.
