Ben Swartz's Hive Mind

The Legacy format was on spotlight this past weekend at the Open in Seattle, Washington. Ben Swartz was the big winner of the Legacy portion using Hive Mind. How does the deck work? With mana acceleration and Show and Tell, Ben rushes Hive Mind to the battlefield. From there he casts a Pact from Future Sight. Hive Mind copies it for the opponent, who must somehow pay for the Pact on upkeep or immediately lose the game. In a pinch, Ben simply uses Show and Tell to plop Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to the battlefield! Read full coverage of the event here.
