Historic Blue-White Auras Deck List - PYKAPOWER
Whenever a ban list happens, the first thing to do is to look at which deck remained untouched by the banlist.
Kor Spiritdancer is a card from Jumpstart that was added to this already existing archetype and put it over the top. Kor Spiritdancer is an archetype staple in Modern, and seeing it doing great work in Historic is nice.
While some games tend to end up pretty fast, some other can take longer and in those Lurrus of the Dream-Den in the Companion zone will be super relevant as you’ll gain value bringing back creatures and Auras when needed.
Two-color manabase in Historic are much better than in Standard. While other players did get the 7 wins on Day2 with Mono-White Auras, the majority of the players winning with Kor Spiritdancer was playing Glacial Fortress, getting access to Spell Pierce and Aether Gust from the sideboard.
