After ample testing of the cards brought to us in AFR, 5 changes have been made to the deck focused on ramping treasure production even higher. Plundering Barbarian, Xorn, Hoarding Ogre, Treasure Vault, and Unexpected Windfall have all be swapped in. For thoughts on why these cards were added see the AFR entry in Updates section.

I was thinking of doing something like this. Some thoughts off the top of my head: Wouldn't Storm-Kiln Artist be good here? I'd be curious to try some more discard synergies, too, to get stuff in the graveyard for the spellbook (Tormenting Voice, Prismari Command, maybe Unexpected Windfall?). I like the Magma Opus and Elemental Masterpieces. Those feel very good here. Rowan, Scholar of Sparks  Flip also seems potentially strong too. Hard to say what the creature/noncreature ratio should look like.

Actually yo Sieze the Spoils is a Kaldheim card. The AFR card you're thinking of is Unexpected Windfall.

Den of the Bugbear: Just duh. This is the best manland for us ever.

Treasure Vault: We should be able to take advantage of this to limit the impact of saccing lands to Ib. Have to be careful with our Blood moon effects.

Hobgoblin Bandit Lord: Yes.

Dockside Extortionist: Back in even though it is stupidly expensive in paper. Probably no better Treasure generator for us.

Unexpected Windfall: Really solid draw and treasures? Yes please.


Goblin Sledder: Unfortunately when every card is so good you have to start cutting anything less than great.

Disrupt Decorum: While I love this card and it is very Ib, it is too narrow and too fleeting to run anymore. If you disagree goad me, bro.

Isolated Watchtower/Great Furnace: Average quality of lands went up, bottom of the threshold did too.


Would still like to get Seize the Spoils in, as well as a good number of other token generators. I'm certain that making land-saccing less detrimental is going to really benefit the deck. If you know of better treasure generators that I missed let me know!

I think it is an okay card it does what it is meant to do, but I would rather run cards like Thrill of Possibility since the cmc is more reasonable. Although technically the total cost of Unexpected Windfall is only two since you get two back, it requires you have four mana to begin with. In games if you get stuck at two or three mana it is just a dead card whereas Thrill of Possibility can speed you along. So overall I'd play it in some decks, but is not game changing for me
