Hey Mana Drainers!
So I have been at work today, refreshing Mythic Spoiler periodically to see what made it into Iconic Masters. Just my two cents on the cards thus far spoiled that I think are Iconic and why. Let me know which (if any) are Iconic to you that I might be missing, but so far there are not a huge number of "Iconic" cards in the set from my perspective. Here is my list:
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - Just a brutal buff and finisher in Dredge, also has that rockin' Phrexian judge foil
Channel - OG first turn kill combo with fireball!
Knight of the Reliquary - Some really cool instant land-grab combos in Legacy.
Ancestral Vision - Cool take on an even MORE iconic card!
Thoughtseize - Brutal hand disruption that defined standard and was pretty significant in Vintage pre-MM.
Lightning Helix - Epic Pro Tour top deck.
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir - Strong ability on a very story-centric card.
Serra Ascendant - Classic first turn beat down in EDH.
Consecrated Sphinx - Wow we have come a long way since ole Mahamoti! EDH all-star.
Grove of the Burnwillows - Combo-rific w/ Punishing Fire.
Mana Drain - Old School Vintage power countermagic!
Flusterstorm - New School Vintage power countermagic!
Primeval Titan - He's called Prime Time for a reason.
Restoration Angel - So many great creatures to blink...Snappy's always been my fave.
Horizon Canopy - Lands deck staple!
Lord of the Pit - He's just so old school cool ... perhaps he hasn't held up the best over the years tho.
