Walk the Plank comes in at #10, and while I'm still not buying this for competitive play, the flavor quandaries it evokes have lots of value. For example, during the draft portion of Nationals, one of my opponents made my Kinjalli's Sunwing Walk the Plank. Kinjalli's Sunwing would just fly away! It was nonsense. I should've called a judge.

#9: Siren Stormtamer

Siren Stormtamer is a sleeper hit that answers the vast majority of removal in Standard. Unlike Spiketail Hatchling and Judge's Familiar before it, Siren Stormtamer is a hard counter, which means it won't become useless as the game goes long.

#8: Field of Ruin

Field of Ruin is a nice answer to Search for Azcanta decks popping up all over the place, and the land search is symmetrical, which means you can use it to simultaneously destroy an opponent's utility land and fix your own mana. YAAAAAY

#7: Treasure Map

Treasure Map goes great with Marionette Master. You should give it a shot.

The banned & restricted announcement goes up today, and lots of folks speculated on Bloodbraid Elf getting unbanned. I guess we'll see.

Legion's Landing AKA The Second Coming of of Kjeldoran Outpost is a clear inclusion in any Anointed Procession deck, and the removal seeing heavy play in Standard is designed to grind and make one-for-one trades. That's good news for tokens decks.

#4: Chart a Course

Two mana for two cards is a much better rate than we're used to, and that's exactly how Chart a Course works most of the time. Starting a game with Siren Stormtamer into Chart a Course sounds pretty great to me.

Unclaimed Territory remains our weekly reminded that casual players account for a lot of sales, and that tribal decks are more beloved than you can imagine.

Kitesail Freebooter's been seen all over the place, from God-Pharaoh's Gift decks to U/B Control sideboards. We've seen cards like this before, but flying and an extra point of toughness make it a force to be reckoned with.

Once again, the best-selling card of the past week is Opt, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I'm really looking forward to more premier Modern events with Opt in the mix.

That'll do it for this week, but if you enjoyed this, subscribe to our YouTube channel, because we do these every week. See you next time.
