This week we’re diving into a deck that has been a long-time deck in the Legacy format, but is only just now getting back into the swing of things with and gone, due to the fact that is also seeing less play. This deck does one of my favorite things in all of Magic in that it draws cards. And I mean lots and lots of cards. It does this under the pretense that your opponent likely isn’t
