    And shrine burn wins Birmingham, so much for "no eidolon wtf?". Eidolon is a few points and a big down-size for the burn player. I'd guess a shrine does at least 4 every time it hits the board.

    The wizards deck seem to have the least value and they put in... merchant of secrets? That could have been another more worthwhile card. Also, no Teferi. I also realized in retrospect that teferi's protection is of course not part of the wizards deck. Also funny that the a deck has both greaves and boots.

    For some reason, I'm not excited. Maybe I'll get the wizards deck anyway.

    BBE is a hasty body with a card draw and free mana at 4 CMC.

    While by itself it doesn't make a deck over-powered, as a card it is. Unban it and every non-combo deck in its color will jam it in. All other cascade spells are either over-cost or do not much of nothing by themselves. That's why they're not magical automatic CA, why they're not being played. BBE is better-than-CA (you cast the card for free), with a body, with haste. It's 7 mana worth of stuff for 4. The 3/2 haste is not irrelevant.

    BBE unban is not meta warping, but the card would get played a ton just because it oozes power. That's what keeps it on the ban list: it would be a mindless inclusion. Nobody would play it because their deck needs a 3/2 haste for 4. They'd play it because they get to play a card for free *and* get in for 3. (Or block and trade or chump or threaten an extra 3 every turn, whatever.)

    It should have totally read: "You phase out of the game." So. much. awesomeness. missed.

    Without life gain, this commander cost is ridunkulous. It's too high variance to my taste: it can cost a boat-load or as little as 3. Not my cup of tea.

    I love those curses; they have a nice anti bearded hipster vibe to their art. Wink

    Holy smoke Teferi's protection. Like angel's grace on steroid. (Okay, what it does is entirely different, I'm talking about the spirit of the card.)

    That probably means we get a Teferi card, right?

    Seems like a nice mardu evolution of leovold, emissary of trest.

    (3 mana, 3 colors, "political" card which rewards targeting players other than you.)

    Too bad there are all those OP build around it that will make people groan.

    I mean, everyone gets a copy of a PW? I feel this card should have been in (and will be slotted in) hug decks.

    The axe should have been made of bones, that would make modicum of sense.

    Contrary to stated opinions, I appreciate that he's got first strike but when holding two equipments he gets double-strike. That is grand-slam flavor.

    Second the head initially looked like a pumpkin until I parsed the fact that he's looking to the left. Still, it's a mess of orange at that resolution.

    Sure, not very original, but the combo is okay. And like I said, I just love getting double-strike with two swords. It only starts to fail when holding more than nine swords. Smile

    So, basically a 7/4 indestructible that taps when attacking and make all equipments auto-attach. (Yeah, I assume you tutor his hammer, so what?)

    It's okay.

    kindred discovery is certainly the most exciting card of the bunch. (No, I don't care for huge, costly things.)

    Between this and summon kindred, green is getting many win-more cards. (Or at least cards that do zilch without creatures.)

    Regarding FoW in the format, I have an even more extreme stance than most; I'd be fine if the rules of the games were altered to say: "once per full turn (i.e. between two of your upkeeps) you can exile two non-land cards from your hand to counter a target spell."

    Like FoW, but without it warping everyone to play blue cards to pitch to it. The weaker alternative would be Force of Not: FoW, but you can pitch a card of any color to it instead of only blue

    Once everyone can say no at the price of card disadvantage, we can move on from not having answers.

    You mean 6 almost identical mono-red aggro (one deck splash black for amit eternal and the black desert if you want to be picky).

    Prepare your sideboards, folks!

    (Admitedly, the top 8 players got there on the strength of their drafting, no just standard decks.)
