One of the breakout Historic decks from the Neon Dynasty Championship was Azorius Affinity. Jean-Emmanuel Depraz piloted his build of the archetype to an impressive 7-0 record, and it immediately caught my eye. I had played Affinity for years in Modern, and I happily jumped on the opportunity to shuffle up artifact lands, Ornithopters and affinity spells once again. The Historic format even contained cards that reminded me of Springleaf Drum and Master of Etherium.
As such, Azorius Affinity seemed like the natural choice for me in April’s Historic Open on MTG Arena. It delivered: I ran the tables on Day 1 and finished 6-2 on Day 2, good for $1000.

In the Arena Open, I copied Depraz’s version card-for-card. Since then, I’ve made a few tweaks and updated it with Streets of New Capenna. Here’s my latest build.
