When looking at the Mystical Archive, I expected a lot of cool cards to possibly get added into Historic, but Faithless Looting certainly wasn’t one of them. I mean, the card is currently banned in Modern because of how strong it is!
Historically speaking, Faithless Looting is one of the most powerful cards, enabling a lot of decks almost by itself. Being able to put cards straight from your hand into your graveyard is a very welcome effect in a lot of combo decks that want to abuse their graveyard. Decks like Dredge, Grishoalbrand, U/R Phoenix all basically wouldn’t work without Looting.
Historic doesn’t currently offer a Dredge deck to put Looting into, but we do have Arclight Phoenix and escape cards like Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger, so let’s take a look at what we can do with it.
