Lorwyn and Shadowmoor have brought about a resurgence in the popularity of the Faeries tribe, but did you know Faeries have been around Magic since the very beginning? All the way back at the very first World Championships in 1994, French player Bertrand Lestree managed to take this deck, featuring Fae representative Argothian Pixies, to the final table before losing to Zak Dolan. Why did Bertrand play the Pixies over more popular cards of the day like Elvish Archers? Because it couldn't be killed by Mishra's Factoryor Juggernaut, both common threats of the era! Find out which cards from the exciting new set Shards of Alara you could add to Bertrand's deck with the Shards of Alara Visual Spoiler.
