Which are the best Mythic Rare cards in MTG Arena?

One of the most exciting parts of cracking open a booster pack in MTG Arena is finding out if your rare is crap or the long-awaited missing piece to your current deck build. In most cases, rares can go either way. If you’re lucky, you will be able to score a coveted mythic rare. While not all mythic rares are going to blow you away, most of the best cards in the meta are actually mythic rares. So how do you know if a mythic is worth redeeming wildcards for? Here is a list of the best 15 Mythic rares in the current meta of MTG Arena.

How to get these cards?

All mythic rares in this list can be pulled from boosters of their current sets or redeemed from wildcards earned from the game.

15. Rekindling Phoenix – Guilds of Ravnica

Rekindling Phoenix - the second best bird in the game

Why is it good?

The Rekindling Phoenix is not even the best phoenix in the current meta (more on that later), but it is still one of the best creatures to play for its cost. At 4cc, this flaming red bird will provide you with a 4/3 flying crit, but its ability to comeback at the next upkeep with haste makes it an ideal defense-for-offense creature. Opponents will have to commit two removal spells or an exile removal to get rid of this bird. It also does well against blue and black decks because of its reincarnation ability.

Where is it used?

Rekindling phoenix is best used as the ceiling crit for RDW decks, although there are some UR builds that add this phoenix to go along with the Arclight. You might also spot this phoenix with some Boros builds, especially if they have ETB (enters the battlefield) triggers on the board, since you could see three triggers with just this creature.
