Welcome to the 4th and final piece of my set review of Modern Horizons 2 from a competitive point of view. I hope you have enjoyed what I've written so far, and just know, it's an awful lot of words, URLs, and images. It's also a lot of fun, so let's dig into the Black cards!
We're back, exploring the expansive world of Magic's latest set, injecting flavor and power directly into the most popular constructed format, Modern. Today's menu includes Artifacts, White, and Blue cards, and I hope you are saving room for dessert, because the final part will cover Black, Red, and Green, the colors of "Jund People" everywhere.
Everyone loves preview season, although it feels like one is always just around the corner these days with as much product as Wizards is producing. That's ok though, it gives us plenty of things to write about, and I always like getting to check out new cards. Prerelease events are the best, because then I'm getting to be one of the first people outside of Wizards to get to play with the new cards. Minus everyone playing online, because everything is there so much earlier now.
For those of you new to the I Rebel site, I'm a new face. I've been doing weekly metagame updates for 3 1/2 years for Modern and Pioneer since the format began. I'm also the first mod for the MMCast Podcast, which has traditionally focused on the Modern format, but branched out further during the pandemic. For those who came here while Star Wars: Destiny was still a thing, I did some work for JediGeekGirl for Destiny, usually related to data, but now I'm here to talk about Magic the Gathering. JGG wanted me to give a bit of background about myself, so here it goes. I graduated high school in 1994 and went to college. That fall I saw this cool card game some friends were playing and when I asked about it, they refused to teach me, telling me that if I started playing I would just spend all my money on it. Truer words were never spoken. I forgot about it and spent time not doing well in school and playing tons of tabletop RPGs with friends.
