Information

Javan, the Steel Crest fills a role that is rare in the Expedition format. He's got a good body for his cost, he gives you card advantage or board presence every turn, and he buffs your units. To fill these varied roles, there's no better place for him in Expedition than Praxis Believe me, I tried very hard to make it work in other colors. Combrei got the closest, but without decent ramp options there's no way to capitalize on it quickly enough to be reliable.



I digress. This list is basic lay 'em down and turn 'em sideways aggro, with a little bit of ramp thrown in to help when the gas starts to stall. D'Angolo Houndmaster is a very impressive unit that mitigates his own restriction quite nicely, and it's rare to have many cards in your hand, even with all the cards we're drawing from Javan and Reliquary Raider, so you shouldn't have any problem releasing the hounds. Our ramp option is Kanya, Ironthorn Envoy. It's not likely the game will run long enough to activate her ability, or that of Praxis Heirloom, but having the option in long games is nice.

In the market, we're running Privilege of Nobility to keep us safe from Stonescar and Dredge, and Onoris Roa to help buy time against mono-fire.

Strengths:

Good synergy.
Plunder and ramp options keep the gas going.
Versatile market.

Weaknesses:

Struggles in the midgame.
