Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Limited Guide

Our Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Limited List ranks all the cards from the set to assist with picking cards for your sealed or draft deck. We have separate ratings for Drifter (D) and Compulsion (C), who are both Mythic ranked drafters and you can read their comprehensive set reviews for each color using the links below the table. Updates will be recorded in the changelog below. You can also access Google Sheets for a printable version.

Legend

  • S: Ridiculous bomb; has a huge effect on the game immediately, and threatens to dominate it if unanswered. (Dream Trawler, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Archon of Sun’s Grace)
  • A: Very powerful card, often approaches bomb status, pulls you strongly into its colour. (Drag to the Underworld, Pharika’s Spawn, Shimmerwing Chimera).
  • B: Great playable, happy to first pick, pulls you into its colour. (Elspeth’s Nightmare, Voracious Typhon, Iroas’s Blessing)
  • C+: Good playable that almost never gets cut. (Favored of Iroas, One with the Stars, Skophos Maze-Warden)
  • C: Fine playable, sometimes gets cut. (Loathsome Chimera, Deny the Divine, Mogis’s Favor)
  • C-: Mediocre playable or good filler, gets cut around half the time. (Stampede Rider, Scavenging Harpy, Phalanx Tactics)
  • D: Medium to bad filler, gets cut a lot. (Sleep of the Dead, Setessan Skirmisher, Hero of the Games)
  • F: Mostly to totally unplayable cards. (Field of Ruin, Underworld Breach, Inspire Awe)
