After featuring it in yesterday's Daily Digest, GerryT felt compelled to work on Legacy this week and puts Monastery Mentor through its paces in the Gitaxian Probe/Cabal Therapy/Brainstorm format to see how crazy it really is.
Monastery Mentor has been breaking out all across Modern in recent experiments, and it's even found a home in Vintage as a powerful kill card. In today's Daily Digest, Gerry looks at a deck trying to find it a good home in Legacy, where its spell-triggered token generation is particularly good with Cabal Therapy.
With Magic Origins taking great effort to hearken back to Magic's oldest days with a few of its cards, Carsten just has to explore how Eternal formats might use these newest analogues to broken restricted Vintage cards.
Chris VanMeter went with G/R Devotion instead of G/R Dragons this past weekend, and as good as Devotion is, that is not a mistake he intends to make twice.
Gerry takes another look at Legacy thanks to a recent 4-0 finish that evolves a well-known former archetype - Landstill - by taking out some of the key components, including Standstill itself.
While he did not do so well as he might have hoped at the recent Prague Eternal event, Carsten takes a retrospective look at that weekend's events thanks to the Top Eight results from the weekend.
Legacy is a format full of powerful cards and high-octane strategies, and there is nothing quite like copying Cloudposts and casting Eldrazi to push you even further over the top.
Legacy decks often update with fair regularity as new sets release and the format shifts... but Gerry has found an archetype that hasn't budged much in years, and he wonders what a new take on it might look like.
While the focus recently has been directed away from Legacy, there is still plenty of evolution going on. Check out this new multicolor twist on Omni-Tell that puts Young Pyromancer to work!
