I’ve been waiting for this card! There was a rumor about this guy when some Planechase leaks occurred about a week ago, but now we have confirmation. I think this card might actually be Legacy playable. It feels like a bit of a sleeper.
“Force of Will gettin banned.”
Yeah, Force of Will is the only thing keeping combo decks from rolling the format over. Without Force of Will, Legacy would devolve into Show and Tell, Painter’s Servant, Reanimator, and Natural Order. Force of WIll makes it so that these decks can be stopped without a big tempo loss that can occur by saving 2 mana open every turn to play Counterspell.
I’ve heard some people talk of Brainstorm getting banned. I don’t think it’s necessary, but it would be interesting. It’s such a good card for digging and against discard spells, that it’s pretty much an auto include into any blue deck. Its banning would also hurt Force of WIll, and make Force only put into decks that are more heavily in blue. Or players would have to play Ponder or Preordain, which would also hinder the blue decks a bit.

I post a lot on here about individual cards, but I think I should start to post some decklists on here. I’ve recently started playing Legacy again, and Junk is a lot of fun. My favorite decks are the ones where I can always have creatures on the board, but still keep a few surprises in my hand. Junk plays the most efficient creatures in Legacy and the best discard spells as well.
The first thing you might notice about this deck is the Green Sun’s Zenith package. Besides Tarmogoyf and Knight of the Reliquary, who are always good, there are a few creatures that I play as a 1-of that can be found whenever they are needed. On turn 1, it can be a ramp spell to find Dryad Arbor. On turn 2, you can get Birds of Paradise for mana fixing. Afterward you can get a huge beater, a Naturalize, or a combo stopper.
The other package I run is the Stoneforge Mystic equipment package. It’s pretty Standard, featuring Jitte, Batterskull, and Sword of Fire and Ice.
The last package in the maindeck is for Knight of the Reliquary. I play 1 Bojuka Bog, 1 Maze of Ith, and 3 Wastelands so that Knight of the Reliquary can do much more than just being an efficient beater.
The sideboard is another package, which features 3 Enlightened Tutor and 12 artifacts and enchantments. That way, I only need to play 1 Choke and I’ve got 3 cards to shut down High Tide. I’ve got 2 Thorn of Amethyst, which gives 5 solid cards that can hinder Storm combos. Englightened Tutor is never a dead card either, as it can always find Sensei’s Diving Top or an equipment.
GW is my favorite color combination, so in Legacy I’ve tried out Bant and Zoo lists as well. I guess I stick with this deck because of how powerful Dark Confidant is. If he goes unanswered, I should almost always be able to pull out a win. I don’t mind being able to have cheap discard spells either.
