Quote from Dejadal »Interesting stuff. I've been tempted to try playing without Retreat, but I think I'd still like to keep in the red splash for Kessig and Staticaster out of the board. Has anybody else tried something similar?
If you don't like Retreat to Coralhelm there are arguments to play without entirely and play it Naya (e.g. with Wild Nacatl). I think Izzet Staticaster is a fine card, but there are not too many matchups where they shine. Now that Dredge is on the rise again it can be appealing, but I think offers better sideboard cards in general.
