I also agree. As a deck builder, I prefer to start with something that is clearly less than optimal, but then try to push it as hard as it will go. It would be a shame if Mairsil ended up with the "top tier" stigma.Quote from Jusstice »I am actually more pleased by this ruling than disappointed. I would have played this general even if it had been just a Morphling in Grixis, and didn’t need all the extra hate from being labeled a “combo” general. Besides, doing the combo enough times gets tired, and then dialing back from there never seems like something I want to do.
Heck, it might get boring just tutoring for Aetherling every game, but at least there is more to it after that.
All that said, the ruling as it stands is still anything but clear to me.
I would also love to do something energy-themed, but as is the case with most block-specific mechanics, there just aren't enough options that synergies with Mairsil over Marchesa.
