Human Mages are consistently one of the Top Decks of Shadow Era. Mainly they tend to be of the rush variant and they have tons of draw options to support this. Tome of Knowledge has consistently been one of the top draw engines for Mages for all expansions. Call of the Crystals and Dark Prophecies also used lots of Bad Santa and occasionally splashed Honored Dead as well as Treasured Heirloom. Shattered Fates brings a new tool in Amulet of Conjuring which really speed the flow of draw cards to the hand. In remains to be determined whether Amulet will remain in its current form or if it will receive some nerf as we move closer to completing the set.
