Top 8 Mirrodin Besieged Cards for Multiplayer

With the entirety of Mirrodin Besieged spoiled and the prerelease this weekend (which sadly I will be missing out on), it’s time to look over the set and figure out which cards are the most interesting. If you want to read about the best drafting strategies, there are much better places to do that, but as someone who places multiplayer almost exclusively, here are the cards that make me the most excited.

8. Choking Fumes

White weenie strategies don’t work the best in multiplayer for the simple reason that they run out of steam far too quick. But white has always had some quirky cards that I absolutely adore since they ignore the color pie, like Holy Light:

Holy Light 2W
Instant
Nonwhite creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn.

Choking Fumes reminds me a lot of this card except it messes with far more people. In multiplayer, there’s plenty of combat and you won’t always be involved in it. This card is a great combat trick that can act as a one-sided Wrath under the right circumstances.

Plus if Persist is still giving you trouble (I hate you Cauldron of Souls) this is a great way to make sure things stay dead.
