In this guide, you will find tips and advice to tackle the Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths limited (sealed and draft) format in Magic: The Gathering.
Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is a world where humans and monsters bond, and features the new Mutate and Companion mechanic (which has since been nerfed since its first release). Cycling also made a return, which due to strong payoffs and ubiquitous cost created an extremely strong archetype on its own in both limited and constructed. This is also the first expansion that introduced human 8 man pod drafting for MTG Arena, as an alternative to bot drafting.
Currently, the Quick Draft Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths event is available from May 14 2021 at 8:00 AM PST to May 28 at 8:00 AM PST.
