Quote from spawnofhastur »I'm not sure what kind of standard environment would be able to produce a Stifle reprint, especially considering the closest thing they've done is Disallow. Then again, Stifle in modern would hose an insane amount of stuff, and I'm not sure the impact on the meta would be altogether positive.
They printed nimble obstructionist, and I have to say I'm sad it did not see play. 3 flash evasive power with the ability to stifle while drawing a card for 3 mana. (And the stifle is not counterable without another stifle.) I honestly thought jeskai control would pick it up. I guess it had to be a 2/1 for 2 with 2 mana cycling to see play?
(I did buy a playset recently, just in case it picks up steam.)
