Yusri, Fortune's Flame brings coinflip mechanics into Modern Horizons 2!

Yusri, Fortune's Flame

First of all, what do the odds look like if we just yolo and choose 5 flips every time? We're going to call the 5-win scenario 'Magical Christmasland', because if you get to draw 5 cards and then suddenly cast your entire hand for free, you probably have just won the game.

Now for the important math that everyone's wondering about – how does the math look if we have Krark's Thumb in play?

Not bad! Magical Christmasland is actually a very real possibility (23.73%) with Krark's Thumb in play, and the lower end of the options are incredibly unlikely.

We're not too certain about the viability of this combo in a format like modern, but we've already written a lot about coinflipping in Commander in our Krark, the Thumbless / Sakashima of a Thousand Faces article, so we'll draw inspiration from there.

Okaun, Eye of ChaosZndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom

Okaun, Eye of Chaos and Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom are two cards that come to mind that reward us simply for flipping coins. Yusri lets us flip a lot of coins, consequences be damned. Yusri seems like it would fit perfectly into the archetype we were working on in that article, and it would be yet another great option as a 'substitute' commander to provide great replay value in just one deck.
