CKL Plays Bant Spirits

This week on CKL Plays, I am excited to try out the very aggressive and very versatile Bant Spirits featuring some new arrivals from Core Set 2019.  The deck has enjoyed some limited success prior to the release of the latest core set but is likely to make a bigger splash since Supreme Phantom and Remorseful Cleric became Modern legal.  Previously lacking enough power in its suite of two-drops, Phantom is a great fit as an aggressively costed lord for the tribe.
