Best colorless Limited Innistrad: Midnight Hunt Artifacts

There are only eight total colorless Artifacts within the Innistrad: Midnight Hunt set, and a few are worth picking up in Limited Draft.  Artifacts often get slotted into sideboards within the Limited format or are overlooked altogether. The Innistrad: Midnight Hunt (MID) meta may elevate several of the colorless cards due to graveyard hate, mana fixing for archetypes running three or more colors, and synergy with the new Daybound/Nightbound mechanic.  None of these colorless Artifacts are first picks, but there are a total of five that stand out as playable

Archetype signpost cards are typically legendary creatures, but that isn’t the case in MID, allowing players to Draft multiple copies without them being a dead card in hand. A total of four

Best Limited Green Common and Uncommon Innistrad: Midnight Hunt cards

Green Common and Uncommon Innistrad: Midnight Hunt cards fall slightly short of expectations associated with the Magic: The Gathering color while synergizing well with the colors Blue and Red.  Werewolves and “graveyard matters” builds will want to include the color Green within Innistrad: Midnight Hunt (MID) Draft. Green naturally pairs well with Red for a werewolf archetype utilizing the Daybound and Nightbound mechanic. Likewise, with self-mill and graveyard synergies in the color Blue. The Green and White archetype may have potential in conjunction with the MID mechanic Coven, depending on

Scheduled to release digitally on July 8 and globally on July 23, the AFR set will introduce an owl that’s also a bear, a

Best AFR Red Common and Uncommon cards in Limited

Normally, a powerful Magic: The Gathering color to build around in the Limited format, Red within Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures into the Forgotten Realms appears weaker than it has in past sets. Red synergizes with Aggro archetypes within AFR, but with a few twists. The d20 roll and Treasure tokens are the two main mechanics within Red. Treasure matters decks might become a solid archetype in AFR Limited, Cards such as Jaded Sell-Sword and Price of Loyalty synergize well with the mechanic. And d20 also has potential, incorporating RNG for
