The Amonkhet basics are probably never going to stop selling well, so we're starting at card #15 this week. The list is still going to hop around — this is just my way of letting y'all know that I do read the comments.

#15: Vizier of Remedies

Vizier of Remedies hasn't (and in all likelihood, won't) made an impact in Standard, but it features heavily in the deck du jour of Modern:

I truly did not expect Anointed Procession to do anything ever in Standard, especially not at a Pro Tour. I was dead wrong. Only thing left to do from here is see if Sam Black sticks with Anointed Procession or moves on to the next bizarre combo/synergy deck.

#7: Sweltering Suns

Harnessed Lightning has solidified itself as Standard's removal spell of choice, edging out Grasp of Darkness by being easier to cast and having a higher ceiling. Can't kill a Torrential Gearhulk with just a Grasp of Darkness! The U/R control deck doesn't have anywhere to put energy but Aether Hub and Harnessed Lightning, and all those Glimmer of Genius rebuys add up. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Glimmer of Genius probably would've been just fine without the energy component stapled on.

I would like some other opinions as to why these lands have been selling so consistently. Is Amonkhet really that much of a lame duck set? I don't think so. Maybe I'm underestimating how much players enjoy this setting.

Am I allowed to talk about the Commander 2017 leaks yet? I have no friggin' clue. The rules on it are weird. Anyway the buys on Zirilan of the Claw, an otherwise irrelevant card made relevant by the reserve list, are a reaction to the Commander 2017 leaks. Or so I'm told. My only hope is that I don't get banned for referencing that they exist. Magic sure is neat.

[Ed. Note: lmaoooooooo]

Okay. I guess, uh

I don't know. My best guess is this decklist:

It's Miracles post- Sensei's Divining Top! Do I think Portent will be our best-selling card ever again? No, but for now, bask in its beautiful, worse-than-Ponder glory.
