  • A pretty powerful card that is great for control scenarios

    • Playing Commit on a huge threat can alter the opponent’s gameplan

9. Bruvac the Grandiloquent

What is great about this card?

  • Some people say mill is a jank deck but with the rise of Rogues, mill is becoming a meta-strategy again

    • With Bruvac on the battlefield, you get to accelerate your mill potential
    • This is important because in mill decks, your opponent’s life total is equal to their cards in the library so having a card that accelerates the mill potential of your deck is like having aggro pieces on attack

8. Champion of Wits

What is great about this card?

  • A good creature that provides decent card advantage especially when taken from the graveyard

    • When you cast Champion of Wits, you will be able to draw two cards while discarding one. Already a decent value in terms of card advantage
    • However, if you get this from the graveyard, whether through God-Pharaoh’s Gift or simply with the Eternalize cost, you will essentially get three more cards as you will draw 4 and discard 1

7. Gadwick, the Wizened

What is great about this card?

  • A very useful card to have in any blue deck as it gives a lot of advantages

    • This card is very useful if you want to negate the opponent’s card draw since it only allows them to draw a single card per turn
    • You can also use Narset to dig through your library to find the right answer to your opponent’s threats

3. Search for Azcanta

What is great about this card?

  • Great card to dig through your deck in the early game

    • Having this card on turn 2 can greatly help you manipulate your deck so that you have close to ideal draws
    • Once you flip this, you get a mana advantage as well as card advantage as you can dig through your deck again to look for specific cards off the top of your library

2. Shark Typhoon

What is great about this card?

  • A really powerful card when you get it on the board

    • Every time you cast a non-creature spell, this enchantment triggers, giving you an X/X flying shark depending on the converted mana cost of the card you cast
