This thread is for discussion of this week's Top Decks, which goes live Friday morning on magicthegathering.com.

Love the new City of Brass variant.  Definitely didn't expect to see it, but when LSV breaks it down like that I like where R&D went with printing this.  Incidentally, in naming it Mana Confluence they are no longer flavorfully restricting themselves to where they can reprint it later.  City of Brass couldn't be reprinted in Theros because there is no city made of brass on the plane.

 

Definitely getting multiples of this to put into all of my multicolor EDH decks.

From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.

MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."

MaRo: I redesigned him while the effect was on the stack.
