New Standard, Old Tricks

With a couple days of new Standard under their belt, Gerry and Bryan are ready to share their first impressions. And those impressions are generally summed up by a simple mantra: “Play Omnath and Lotus Cobra.” Drawing your deck on Turn 4, turns producing dozens of mana, passively gaining tons of life, ample card advantage… It’s all possible for Four-Color Genesis Ultimatum. Is there any hope, or are we doomed to another two years of Standard defined by ramp?
