    Orzhov Guildmage - He's my favorite WB card ever printed and I don't particularly like any of the other generals available at the moment.

    Also, he'd make Lich.dec slightly more viable. Kekeke

    I'm sorry, but the downside of 6 mana and having to discard down to 2 each turn is a put-off. Even if you just want to draw your deck in one turn, there's combos out there that are much less painful.

    For instance, with Phyrexian Altar and Gravecrawler, Grim Haruspex is all you need. Pentavus, Blade of the Bloodchief, Ashnod's Altar, and Skullclamp work too. There's Dross Scorpion, Myr Turbine, and Skullclamp. Or Aphetto Alchemist equipped with Illusionist's Bracers + Arcanis the Omnipotent. Even Future Sight is sort of the same effect, since the more you play off your topdeck, the more cards you see.

    For Recycle type effects, about the best I can think of is a storm-type combo with Ornithopter, Midnight Guard, and Retraction Helix. And at that point, you might as well toss in Impact Tremors or Altar of the Brood and call it a wincon right there.

    All the combos your mentioned there require multiple specific cards to work. All Null Profusion needs you to is play your deck and it'll provide you with a ton of card advantage anyway. Yes there might be situations in which you end up with two lands in your hand and nothing else, but in that situation even if you didn't have Null Profusion out you would still have ended up with those lands in hand regardless. Of course, you can counter that by saying that a couple of turns before you may have had to discard a draw spell to get down to two cards in hand, but then that really is the skill tester with this card - knowing what to discard and what to keep.

    Having played with Library back in the day, and seeing how common it is in EDH for players to hav3 7+ cards in hand, I can state with some certainty that it is still quite capable of being broken in EDH. Is it more broken than some other cards which are not banned? That's questionable, but I don't see that it being unbanned would bring anything good to the format.



    While I don't disagree with it having the potential to be broken in EDH, I'm not convinced that it wouldn't bring anything good to the format. If nothing else it would give W and R decks a decent draw engine and would add another iconic card to the format's card pool - something which is a huge part of the format's appeal for many players.



    Until you look at the price tag and realize that just because it's balanced and gives red a white decks a draw engine most players will never bother getting. It's not back breaking at all, but it wont suddenly appear in decks. You could build ten EDH decks for the price of one LOA. Is that banworthy? Who cares. 99% of edh play groups wont even notice if it stays on or stays off.

    I completely agree, but my point was that it has the potential to bring something good to the format - even if it's likely to be a minimal thing.

  • posted a message on So which planeswalker are you the most excited about in Magic:Origins?
    For me it's probably Jace. I don't care much for him as a character (I'm much more of a fan of Tamiyo and Tezzeret) but I'm hoping that by having some sort of hoop to jump through to trigger his transform we'll see an increase in his power back to the level of Jace Beleren or thereabouts.

    Second for me is Liliana as I've been brewing an EDH deck built around her already and have really enjoyed it so far. Grin

    I run it in my Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed and generally find that resolving it will allow me to win the game.

    I've not found any particular interactions necessary to make it work - just packing a lot of decent cards in the deck and keeping your mana curve low should generally be enough. However, Ritual cards have generally been very good with it in my experience, either allowing me to play it early or generate mana to play cards drawn off it.

    My Animar deck can win by going infinite but it's not the main win condition. If you're interested in Animar I'd suggest building it and avoiding Cloudstone Curio and Kiki Jiki, Mirror Breaker; the deck's focus then should be playing lots of creatures, probably fueled by Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage.

    Plus most of the deck is commons and uncommons, so you can build it for very cheap! Smile

    The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale/Pendrell Mists/Magus of the Tabernacle against token decks.

    Silent Arbiter is awesome against most creature-centric decks too. Grin

    How about Choice of Damnations? It might not be amazingly powerful but it seems like it's on-theme and has the potential to be pretty good in some situations.

    I tried a Xira Arien cantrip-based deck a while ago featuring the enchantress cards, Recycle/Null Profusion, Horn of Greed etc. It's not the most competitive deck ever but it's fun and can pull of some really powerful plays.
