Lurrus Takes Sram Auras To The Next Level


Lurrus of the Dream-Den is taking over Magic.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den

While decks in some formats warp themselves around Lurrus, jamming Mishra's Bauble into every deck and removing three and four-mana sacred cows, there are a small subset of decks that need to make zero changes at all for Lurrus to slot in perfectly. One of those decks is a deck near and dear to my heart that broke out in the hand of Ken Yukihiro months ago - Orzhov Sram Auras in Pioneer.

Sram, Senior Edificer
Ethereal Armor
Hateful Eidolon

Sram Auras is to enchantments as Affinity is to artifacts. It is a synergy-based aggro deck that looks to push cards like Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters to their aggressive limits, while helping to undo the potential card disadvantage by drawing tons of cards with Sram. Theros Beyond Death brought two excellent new additions to the deck in Hateful Eidolon and Alseid of Life's Bounty, both of which make the deck even more resilient by providing card draw insurance and incidental protection stapled onto one-mana lifelinking enchantment bodies.

The deck already didn't play any cards over two mana, making Lurrus a natural and wonderful fit. Lurrus is a perfect plan B when your opponent is able to disrupt your plan, and even has lifelink to boot!

Five opponents, five companions.

At the moment this is what Constructed Magic looks like, so signing up for an event with the best companion in your deck and a fast clock to hopefully kill your opponent before they get their companion online is not a bad place to be. The deck is quick, aggressive, and puts a lot of pressure on your opponent to have the correct answer quickly. It also rewards careful play and sequencing, making sure you can get the most value out of your cards and know when to leave back protection and when to let it ride and go for it. And it's relatively inexpensive too!
