Azorius Decks

Daniel Ward's W/U Approach

Top Moments of GP Minneapolis
This deck uses an alternate win condition with Approach of the Second Sun and lots of card draw and a little life gain. It's a very unusual archetype but it finished 10th!

Approach of the Second Sun is a card that refers to the story of Amonkhet, where the two suns aligned between the Bolas horns before the Hour of Devastation. The mystery of what would happen when the second sun approached was baked into dozens of this summer's cards. Now that it's here and things are falling, can the card become dominant for the new year?
