Hey guys! Welcome to Episode 5 of our Modern Nexus Video Series, where we pick a sweet list and run it through some matches on Magic Online. This week we have Luis Scott-Vargas’ Bringing Gifts deck, which he talked about a little while ago on the Mothership. This deck features the traditional Four-Color Gifts Ungiven shenanigans, but with Bring to Light now in the mix for even more craziness!
Will Bring to Light be enough to finally push this deck into the spotlight? Let’s find out!
Bringing Gifts - Luis Scott-Vargas
*Accidentally muted my webcam a few minutes before the end of the video. Apologies for the audio loss, gameplay still there though!
The results were not too bad! My prior experiences with Four Color Gifts had me worried that our deck would be too clunky and awkward, and the added power that Bring to Light provided wouldn’t do much to change things. We only played three matches, but I think it’s safe to say that Bring to Light in Gifts is a game-changer. In my opinion, Bring to Light evens out our draws, making our bad draws better and our deck run smoother. The ability to effectively quadruple the number of sideboard cards we have for any matchup is incredible as well, giving Gifts an incredible post-sideboard gameplan against pretty much everyone.
I plan on playing this deck a lot more in the coming weeks, so if you have any opinions/thoughts feel free to let me know in the comments or stop by my Twitch stream at twitch.tv/Architect_Gaming! Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next week!
