There are few things in life more satisfying than casting three cantrips and putting an Arclight Phoenix onto the battlefield. After Faithless Looting was banned in Modern, I assumed those days were numbered. I never thought there would be a new format, Faithless Looting would somehow be legal, and a card like Dragon's Rage Channeler or Unholy Heat would be printed.

A few weeks ago, I did some solid work laying the foundation for what would become of Izzet Phoenix in Historic. After a few days terrorizing the ladder, I have a list I'm very pleased with.
