Modern: RWu Burn

GP Milan has good news for Modern Burn players. Lucantonio Salvidio took RWu Burn to the top eight of Grand Prix Milan this past weekend.

The white is obviously for Lightning Helix and Boros Charm. I didn’t think Wizards would make a better Lightning Helix for burn decks but they did. Modern Burn went way too long without having a Flame Rift.

But what’s the blue for? Treasure Cruise. At this point any deck playing blue that woundn’t normally be is splashing for Treasure Cruise. And I can’t blame them. Between fetches and constant burn spells to the dome, casting Cruise is easy. Plus it gives Burn gas which it desperately needs in Modern.

In addition to the blue splash, Modern Burn also now has Monastery Swiftspear alongside Goblin Guide for fast beats. By the way, Monastery Swiftspear is amazing if you somehow don’t already know.
