Building an Eight Point List: Part 2

  • by

Hi all! This is the second part of a series, check out part 1 here! Applied Theory: How do you choose your eight points when building a deck? So we know why we’re playing eight points, but which points are we playing? There is no point in imposing a restriction on deck by not playing Reserved List cards, if the… Read More »Building an Eight Point List: Part 2

Points-Update-BRO

Points Announcement: The Brother’s War

Highlander overall has remained in a pretty healthy state, with a wide variety of successful archetypes. While we are seeing some regional dominance with specific decks, for the most part we’re happy with where the format is, and with the impact of the last batch of changes.

Points Announcement: Ikoria

Last announcement saw a major change to dominant Tempo and Combo decks in the metagame, and we have since seen a healthy balance return.
