By Wizards of the Coast

The 2000 Canadian National Championship was the first large event to feature Standard decks with Prophecy. Two of the decks changed by Prophecy are featured below.

Gary Krakower
Monored Burn and Land Destruction


Main Deck
4 Avalanche Riders
4 Goblin Cadets
4 Veteran Brawlers

3 Hammer of Bogardan
4 Pillage
4 Rhystic Lightning
4 Seal of Fire
2 Shock
3 Stone Rain
4 Tangle Wire

LAND (24)
2 Dust Bowl
3 Ghitu Encampment
15 Mountain
4 Rishadan Port
3 Cave-in
3 Cursed Totem
2 Keldon Vandals
2 Lightning Dragon
3 Scald
2 Thran Foundry

Gary Krakower is using Prophecy's Rhystic Lightning, which does four damage for three mana if the recipient can't pay to stop it. He's also playing Veteran Brawlers, a 4/4 for two mana that can only attack if the defending player doesn't control an untapped land. The deck thus combines land destruction with cards that punish an opponent for not having enough land.
