The Return of Black White Sorin


In the recently concluded Wotc PAX Spoiler Party Event officially revealed a few card spoilers for the upcoming big set Khans of Tarkir including awesome news that the Onslaught allied fetchlands will be reprinted. One of the revealed cards was Sorin Markov in another Orzhov (Black White) form. Here is the card:

sorin sv-r

I have come up with an initial list of its potential Standard deck after the rotation:

4 Brimaz, King of Oreskos
4 Brain Maggot

2 Banishing Light
3 Spear of Heliod
4 Raise the Alarm
2 Hero’s Downfall
2 Bile Blight
4 Thoughtseize

1 Ajani Steadfast
3 Elspeth, Sun’s Champion
3 Sorin, Solemn Visitor

The list basically implies the same strategy way back in the Innistrad Black White tokens list I played in 2012. This time, the access to Thoughtseize makes the matchup favorable against midrange and control decks. Brain Maggot also helps with the hand disruption as we setup into Brimaz and planeswalkers.

We’ll have to wait for the release of the full spoiler to come up with a complete decklist. For now, let us just enjoy the previews of the set that will make up a new Standard format after the rotation.
