I think Healer's Hawk is going to be a key part of Mentor curve-outs for Boros in Limited. Just attack with it and ever-larger Mentors and it'll likely be tough to deal with. I think it's very unlikely to see any Constructed play.

I like that thought for limited.

I would agree with this. It seems like an interesting enough card.

Assassin's Trophy is bonkers.

Yeah it is. Super cheap for removal.

I think Chromatic Lantern’s going to be a big card. I’ve built a Bant Historic deck for banter that is actually mostly artifacts and good colorless lands with a few colored things mixed in. Just for banter (ha, BANTer), nothing serious. But it actually plays okay, and Lantern might be one of he cards it need to go somewhere. Plus it’s going to bring some tri-color decks some more power.

heck yeah. I'm extremely excited to see how this card impacts modern. I've been slowly working towards completing Mardu Pyromancer, but this might just bring Jund/Abzan back into the format.

Okay
Crackling Drake plus Induced Amnesia
Does this do what I think it does?

are you really gonna hold back that many cards for your induced amnesia to exile enough?
also you gotta either use it after crackling drake is played or spin the wheel and hope its in your new hand
plus its all colored symbols which means it has to be pretty impressive to be good at all
i dont think its a very powerful combo and its probably only good in draft with jump-start

I wasn’t worried about the power
I just wanted to know if that was a thing

Okay
So I have decided to disagree with you on the power of Crackling Drake with this decklist:

Crackling Drake x3
Flood of Recollection x2
Mission Briefing x3
Syncopate x4
Erratic Cyclops x2
Apex of Power x2
Lava Axe x2
Expansion // Explosion x2
Response // Resurgance x3
Boros Locket x2
Izzet Locket x3
Beacon of Lightning x2
Omnispell Adept x2
Lightning Strike x4

Needs some work, but I like where it’s going
Going to call it “Apply Cold Water to Burn: Standard Edition”

Need to set up a mana curve
Thinking maybe Maximum Velocity in trade for Lava Axe?
Lava Coil for Lighting Strike?
Sideboard Niv-Mizzet and Lighting Strike?
Thoughts?

The viability of that list is hugely dependent on where you’re playing. At a reasonably competitive standard FNM it’s not going to be good enough. At the kitchen table with your buddies who are all as new to the game as you it might work with a couple changes. Ask yourself what is your deck trying to do?

Is it trying to put spells into your graveyard quickly and play creatures that synergize with that strategy? Try some cheap cantrips like opt, chart a course and tormenting voice. Also include the mini Crackling drake that is Enigma Drake.

Is it trying to turbo ramp into big finishing spells like Apex of Power and Expansion//Explosion? Try some better artifact ramp like chromatic lantern and guilded lotus. Also considering cutting some of the midrange creatures like Crackling drake for more early interaction.

That list feels stuck between a couple different strategies. I’ve found it helpful to ask myself what does my perfect opening hand or curve out look like? Those questions should lead you towards a strategy you can focus your deck around.

Tajac, Legion’s Edge

Will see play in my Red/White equip deck. Probably to replace my Benalish Honor Gaurd.
Which might be enough to warrant a Blackblade play? I’m running a bunch of other Legendary already, so this is just icing on the cake.

Not quite. It's playable filler in limited. An aggressive boros deck in particular will like cheap creatures to grow with mentor.

our prerelease had 6 dimir, 5 selesnya, 3 izzet, 3 golgari, 2 boros. The finals were ID'ed (for a 4-0-1 record) by either two dimir or a dimir and a selesnya deck (not completely sure on one of them). I was one of the two boros decks, which both went 4-1.
