Jeskai Fires on Arena


Throne of Eldraine Standard is here and it appears to have changed the format a ton. Overall, the matches go longer since everyone is grinding. Today I have a Jeskai Fires that I got from Zach Kiihe who ended up going 5-0 with it on Magic Online. I switched some cards around like adding a castle main deck and a couple of sideboard cards. After playing I do wish I had one Fires in the Sideboard and another Castle Vantress main deck as it's really good with Fires of Invention.

Time Stamps:

Match 1 - 00:01:27

Match 2 - 00:11:47

Match 3 - 00:31:50

Overall deck was fine but seemed to struggle against Field of the Dead decks. Also big Green decks can be rough if Deafening Clarion isn't clearing the battlefield, which is why I'd like access to one or two more battlefield wipes in Time Wipe, Planar Cleansing, or even Realm-Cloaked Giant.

Fires of Invention is a powerful card, it's like Nexus of Fate, where right now it is fun but when someone breaks it, it will no longer be fun. I imagine that should happen come 2-3 sets.

Well, that's all I have for you today.

As always thanks for reading and I hope you have wonderful weekend!
