Reprint Series - Khans of Tarkir, Part 2

Legacy staples are being reprinted nearly every year. What if you have never played Legacy but get a couple of these cards? What do you do? In the Reprint Series, I’ll be exploring possible budget decks built around these reprints. These lists may or may not be tuned. Proxy these up and see if these lists are within your budget!

Previous Reprint Series posts:

As I mentioned in Reprint Series - Khans of Tarkir, Part 1, the fetchlands rotating in and Deathrite Shaman rotating out creates an awesome scenario for incoming Legacy players - the ability to play the best mana dork ever printed!

Where else can we take the little-elf-shaman-that-could? Well, how about…Elves?

Deck 2: Elves!

Creatures - 38

  • 4 Deathrite Shaman
  • 3 Llanowar Elves
  • 4 Quirion Ranger
  • 4 Priest of Titania
  • 4 Elvish Visionary
  • 4 Wirewood Symbiote
  • 4 Heritage Druid
  • 4 Nettle Sentinel
  • 4 Sylvan Messenger
  • 1 Birchlore Rangers
  • 1 Reclamation Sage
  • 1 Craterhoof Behemoth

Spells - 4

  • 4 Green Sun’s Zenith

Lands - 18

  • 4 Wooded Foothills
  • 4 Windswept Heath
  • 1 Overgrown Tomb
  • 7 Forest
  • 2 Dryad Arbor

I wrote about an Elf deck a couple weeks ago, but really, the spoiling of fetchlands makes the budget Elf deck 4 Glimpses, 3 Natural Order, some dual lands, and 4 Gaea’s Cradle away from being complete.

Fetchlands not only fuel Deathrite Shaman, but it gives a better reason for the 2nd Dryad Arbor to be in the deck. Dryad Arbor does a lot of work here - being an untap target with Wirewood Symbiote and Quirion Ranger, being an infinite blocker to stop Jitte with Quirion Ranger, awesome vs Liliana, and being an unkillable green creature for Natural Order purposes (when you get the Natural Orders).

We add a single Overgrown Tomb to take advantage of all of Deathrite Shaman’s abilities (though keep in mind Birchlore Rangers can do the same thing as well). The lifeloss shouldn’t be a big deal, as noted by Kyle Fader’s 12th place finish at our Championship event with more shocks than duals.

What other things can we do in Legacy now that we have cheaper fetchlands? I have a couple more lists coming!

“Hercules,huh? Percy frowned. “That guy was like the Starbucks of Ancient Greece. Everywhere you turn—there he is.”
