As we all know, Modern is full of wild decks. Very often, however, people just play what they know and like best. In this case, the old meets the new. Let’s break down what’s happening in this Boomer Jund + Busted new cards deck.
Let’s begin with the obvious nowadays – it’s a Lurrus deck. Any deck that wants to go from Bad to Good seems to have to adopt Lurrus. But no wonder – it’s a card advantage engine which you don’t have to draw, so it’s never dead in your hand in fast match-ups. In longer games it’s a must answer threat which comes down when you decide it’s time and is a free card. In previous Jund shells, the deck relied on Liliana of the Veil and Bloodbraid Elf so now we have to make the deck meet the restriction and retain (or preferably increase) its power.
