Weekly Card Review (WCR2)

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!

Faithless Looting
This powerful common is possibly the strongest red draw spell in standard, personally, I was quite impressed with the fact that the cards you discard aren't random but chosen by you instead!
 When you look into cards like Chandra's Phoenix/Vengeful Pharaoh you then realize that you aren't really discarding cards but simply drawing 2 cards for 1 mana. Although this card is much stronger in vintage or classic, I believe that I can build a standard deck around it.
Some of the best standard cards to play around with Faithless looting are: Gravecrawler, Chandra's Phoenix, Vengeful Pharaoh, Burning Vengeance, Desperate Ravings, Unburial Rites, Ancient Grudge, Geistflame, Bump in the Night, Ghoulraiser, Gravedigger, Postmortem Lunge and Reassembling Skeleton.

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


  1. hi! sorry for offtopic. when will start working again?

  2. There was a few errors with wikiprice and it was also causing the server to become very very slow (causing bots to stop while waiting for response). Albert is working on it and only him should be able to give you a answer on that one.
