Weekly Card Review (WCR1)

This is a new series of articles where I will review a card from the latest set Every week and its influences in constructed Standard, from the top mythic down to common cards that people might be ignoring their full potential. Between each review I will show a example of a deck where that card could fit.
Please feel free to add more ideas and discuss the cards on each week!

Havengul Lich
This new Mythic from Dark Ascention has yet not shown its full potentional and its possible combo's are not possible to count with your hands.

The big point of this creature its the ability to cast creatures from the graveyard for just a colorless mana.

The best cards to play around with Havengul Lich are: Snapcaster Mage, Priest of Urabrask, Heartless Summoning, Perilous Myr, Viridian Emissary, Mana Leak, Slash Panther, Core Prowler, Rage Extractor, Fiend Hunter, Discipline of Griselbrand, Mentor of the meek.
From Infinite card drawal, mana, damage and proliferate this card is yet to be fully discovered, the ideas for decks around this card don't stop coming. 

Be tuned in the next few days to see what deck I managed to build around of this new gem.


  1. It doesn't say "without paying its mana cost" so you need to pay it. And it gains activated abilities not triggered

  2. when you pull Priest of urabrask with a heartless summoning in game it will generate 3 red manas for 2 manas, that produces a infinite mana loop making you able to cast every colorless creature off any graveyard, and, if they die with heartless summoning -1 -1s recast them over and over again.
