Margaret Thatcher: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”
John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country,”
Martin Luther King Jr.: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
How i feel about competitive players and casual players in EDH: The competitive are german tourists, the casual are italian tourists, both in a italian beach. The italians asking themselves "why are the germans here?" make a legitimate question, the answer is because the beach is beautiful, no matter the country you came from. The italians wanting to ban the germans are dumb, because if the germans pay for their stay and follow the rules like everyone else, they have the right to be in the beach. Hovewer, if the germans started to ask themselves "why are the italians here?"... they would be dumb as hell.
In upcoming Standard this will hold a lot of value if B/x decks continue to run Eyetwitch and Shambling Ghast. With Ghast you can even still kill another creature or get there treasure and it exiles their permanent, which is one plus over Vindicate.
Funny how Vindicate, once a source of awe, is now barely playable.
This is better than Vindicate, and literally everything you mentioned is better than Utter End.
You must have never known the evil joy of vindicating an opponent's land when they are mana screwed, or the anguish of having this done to you. Stone rain mode puts vindicate a cut above the others, at least in 1v1, in my opinion.
But hey, this is still good. In token decks or anything with sacrifice synergies, I think this is VERY good.
