Dimir Gets Rare Saga In King Narfi’s Betrayal In Kaldheim

New saga does a little bit of everything a black and blue mage would want.

King Narfi’s Betrayal is an interesting take on mutual milling that allows you to play creatures or planeswalkers from any player’s graveyard.

Each player mills four cards. Then you may exile up to one creature or planeswalker card from each graveyard.

Start off the saga with some milling, then you get to exile some cards to avoid any escape shenanigans or to set up the next two chapters.

Until end of turn, you may cast spells from among cards exiled by King Narfi’s Betrayal, and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast those spells.

While the first part can be used as semi-graveyard hate, the second and third chapter pay you off with more action. Once you exile creatures or planeswalkers with the first chapter, you can play the cards exiled on your later turns. Not only can you get rid of a problem card in an opponent’s graveyard, but you can use it against them later. By milling yourself as well, it allows you to set up easier ways to find key cards while also filling your graveyard for future escape cards or targets for Regrowth or Reanimate spells.

What do you think of King Narfi’s Betrayal? Is the card advantage reliable enough to play or does it need to be in a graveyard-focused deck to be powerful enough for Standard?
