Today's story has Elspeth climb the ranks of the Maestros... and the Cabaretti. For today, the second story is also linked to the main storyline, as Vivien crosses paths with both Elspeth and an Urabrask willing to overthrow New Phyrexia. Note that we'll be having a break on Magic Story tomorrow, to resume on Monday.
Seems like it could be a solid role-player in a standard Naya tokens deck (if one emerges). The fact that the same card can either be a kill spell or wincon if you've established a big enough board of creatures while at the same time having the backup mode of making 2 tokens if your board *isn't* wide enough seems pretty good. In my experience you should never undervalue cards that are both enablers and payoffs for a strategy, as they tend to over perform by helping reduce the "wrong half of the deck" problem.
All modes are strictly worse than the other charms so far and its just nothing you really want in the color combinations either.
The modes are just too specific and too weak.
No, it isn't strictly worse than the other charms. Generally worse? Maybe. Strictly worse? Not even close.
"it's nothing you want in the color combinations" well, it is extremely obvious that they are pushing the Cabaretti to a go wide version of Naya colours this time. So there will definitely be support for this in standard and limited.
