Xanathar is an opponent-only Future Sight using the Sen Triplets lockdown clause for extra effect. Definitely worse than the Triplets, but do we really want another one of that?
The worm is this set's random large Green uncommon beater for Limited. Is it better or worse than Bookwurm?
Ah, back to evaluating cards for Modern and figuring that Xanathar is a 6-mana 5/6 that only does stuff the turn after it(/he?) ETB, has no protection, and doesn't even have Flash.
Xanathar at least prevents pretty much everything you cast on your turn from being countered in 1v1 games, you can cast your opponent's stuff, and it's in the Ad Nauseam deck's colours, so I guess there's hope?
The green card is limited filler and probably not a great one.
the Mythic seems like commander only material as well.
kinda like Sen Triplets, but larger, easier to cast and that actually can be used to "lock" opponent out of the game if you're able to keep casting their stuff until you find a land or something useless.
seems too slow for constructed but I might try and make a janky arena deck around it for historic or something.... lol.
Not a fan of that Beholder. It seems on point from an ability perspective according to D&D but it translates into a horribly un-fun card that requires you to do nothing other than protect it. Too easy for that kind of payoff IMO - I miss the old days.
THIS...and why doesn't it use its eyebeams? Where is the Death Ray, the turn to stone, the ray of command, the...they made a Beholder that isn't a Beholder!
