Ixalan wasn't a factor at MKM Series Hamburg 2017, as the set wasn't even released yet. But it was of course one of the most discussed topics among players. We asked a number of notable players whether they had seen any cards in the upcoming expansion which might have potential in Legacy …

Julian Knab, Legacy champion 2017 SuperFinals: “There's some talk about Chart a Course within ‘the scene.' Nobody's really sure whether it's gonna be good enough. My personal opinion is that Predict is much better since it actually kinda draws 2.5 cards as you don't have to draw the presumably bad card you decided to mill away. I could see some deck which can't really afford to play Predict trying Chart a Course, but the card has yet to fully convince me.”

Rodrigo Togores, three-time MKM Series champion:Siren Stormtamer could be played in legacy to counter target discard while having a boddy, Im not sure the card is great, but its interesting for sure.”

Marius Hausmann, Legacy champion MKMS Milan 2017:Chart a Course caught my immediate attention. It looks highly playable across all formats. Even without attacking the card is still reasonable after all. Although, in Legacy, one would need to make room for it in some deck first.”

Andreas Reling, semifinalist GP Stockholm 2016:Growing Rites of Itlimoc / Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun is probably too expensive, but having access to more Gaea's Cradles could be interesting for Elves.”

Thoralf “Toffel” Severin, Standard semifinalist MKMS Prague 2017:Growing Rites of Itlimoc / Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun in Elves and Unclaimed Territory in Sliver/Human tribal et cetera.”
