MtG: 13 Best Core Set 2021 Cards for Pioneer

Basri's Lieutenant

Sacrifice decks have done well in both standard and pioneer, and Basri's Lieutenant looks like a great addition to those types of black and white decks.

Cruel Celebrant and Cartel Aristocrat can sacrifice creatures with counters on them, and Basri's Lieutenant will put more tokens on board for them to eat up. This simple trick will easily double up the overall damage of the deck.

The protection from multicolored cards also saves Basri's Lieutenant from certain types of removal in the format, such as Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy.
