In today’s Playtest Perspective video, Dragons face off against Allies in a battle for Standard victories. Dragon Control features favorites such as Thunderbreak Regent, Dragonlord Atarka, and Drgaonlord Ojutai, backed up with counterspells. Once you get your Dragons out, a combination of Sarkhan and Kiora keep you going while Icebreaker Regent keeps any threat tapped down.


Ally Rally is a combo style deck that focuses on dealing damage through triggered abilities. Kalastria Healer bring incremental damage when an Ally enters, while Zulaport Cutthroat bring the pain when your creatures die. Nantuko Husk allows for sacrifice triggers and big beats, with instant speed spells such as Collected Company and Rally the Ancestors to bring in more creatures and triggers.

Pardon the lighting and audio, we were testing out a new system for the set up. Also, the beginning of the video is a fatpack unboxing so if you want to head straight to the games, they are at the 6:17 mark. Enjoy!
