I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

This deck is inspired by a story near and dear to my heart. While Herbert fans may recognize some specific nods to the books, the deck is really designed to represent Dune more thematically: Politics, Power, Prescience, Natural Order, The March of Time, The Limits of Human Ability. In his best moments, Hazezon plays the role of Paul, rising from the desert with a fearsome army at his back, crushing his enemies then disappearing back into the sands. However, this deck can run completely without Hazezon, choking opponents for resources and accruing value with its other token generators.

This was the deck the got me into Magic, and I put a lot of love and attention into the details of its aesthetic. In honor of the Reserved List general, I defer to the old card frame wherever possible, otherwise it's foil all the way!

Thanks for the love on this deck; she's my baby. One of these days I'm going to get around to a full card-by-card breakdown of the list and give you all a window into the mental gymnastics that keep the flavor of this deck on point even as it grows more potent.

Sallamaka al-lahu wa-nasaraka!
