ChannelFireball.com writer Alexander Shearer went to Worlds to play in side events and unveiled a new Modern deck with some powerful interactions. Alexander is no stranger to Gifts Ungiven decks, and his familiarity let him exploit a loophole in the way it works. You can choose to find only two cards with Gifts Ungiven, and then your opponent must choose to put those two cards into your graveyard. The two cards Alex was choosing? Unburial Rites and Iona, Shield of Emeria! Could this interaction become a staple of the Modern format? Read about it in Alexander's article on ChannelFireball.com, then try it for yourself and find out!
