Top 10 Historic Cards from Zendikar Rising

It's release week (at least, digitally) for Zendikar Rising, which means it's time to start talking about what the cards from Magic's newest set can do in various constructed formats. Today, we're looking at what Magic's newest set can do in Magic's newest format: Historic! What Zendikar Rising cards have the power to show up in the ever-shifting Magic Arena–focused format? Let's find out! After the video, make sure to let us know which Zendikar Rising cards you are most excited to play in Historic in the comments!

Three quick notes before we get to the video. First, the list in the video is a combination of Seth's and Crim's individual lists. You can find both of their personal lists below. Second, as usual, the dual-land cycle was excluded from the countdown because they aren't all that exciting to talk about, even though they will almost certainly see some Historic play, especially in aggro decks. Finally, we decided to group the mythic double-faced modal cards together; otherwise, the lists would be dominated by this cycle. Anyway, without further ado, here are our top 10 Historic cards from Zendikar Rising!
