Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Several seasons ago, when Innistrad and Return to Ravnica was still kicking it, a rogue decklist won a Pro Tour and made a big splash at other major events. If you were playing at the time (early 2013), you will certainly know of the 'Aristocrats', so called because of Cartel Artistocrat and Falkenrath Aristocrat.
Imagine if you will the nice shenanigan to be had with shooting your own Blisterpod with a Bone Splinters to destroy one of your opponent's creature. Lifegain (and their lifeloss) with Zulaport, some +1/+1 counters to your Rot Shamblr or Malakir Cullblade, and a number of other equally satisfying possibilities.
There may be an Artistocrats-like decklist on the horizon at a big tournament and MTG Realm will be taking notes to compare against our build - which we hope to share after next Friday Night Magic.~
