The block season is upon us if we want to play Ravnica Block. Since Wizards choose team block events for the Pro Tour, there are not any main events like last year for people to play block. This makes it harder for some people since they usually net deck or like me look for an idea to tweak a bit.

This might make some people who play other Type 2 decks try to make them block such as Gruul with Burning tree Shaman, B/W with Ghost Council, Zoo, Ghazi Deck with Glare, U/R/W Firemane Angel
