Section 3: Magic Origins

So, we have the full set spoiled and lots of powerful cards are included.

So, how can we boost an existing deck?

I think an easy call is to add Auramancer to the Boros Heroic deck for some sweet recursion.

But what cards, if any, transform an existing deck and make it better?

I think Infectious Bloodlust makes the Boros Heroic deck even better! You already want to swing in. You want to cast enchantments. You want to be able to replace cards you lose. This card makes that deck have a lot more resiliency.

Lets look at Jonder-qind’s deck

Creatures (18)
Akroan Skyguard
Satyr Hoplite
Wingsteed Rider
Hopeful Eidolon
Lagonna-Band Trailblazer

Spells (22)
Dragon Mantle
Feat of Resistance
Gods Willing
Titan’s Strength
Chosen by Heliod
Inferno Fist
Temur Battle Rage
Lands (20)
Plains
Mountain
Wind-Scarred Crag

If we add in Infectious Bloodlust:

Creatures (18)
Akroan Skyguard
Satyr Hoplite
Wingsteed Rider
Hopeful Eidolon
Lagonna-Band Trailblazer

Spells (22)
Dragon Mantle
Feat of Resistance
Gods Willing
Titan’s Strength
Infectious Bloodlust
Temur Battle Rage
Lands (20)
Plains
Mountain
Wind-Scarred Crag

You lose the draw from the Heliod’s, but you gain the ability to go get a card.

What do you think?
