Quote from saturated_wombat »Great to hear your silky voice. Seems to be about the usual amount of playables in the set.
Quote from Xyx »Given that you cannot Natural Order/Green Sun's Zenith/Genesis Wave into Decimator of the Provinces, is it really better than cheap ol' Overrun?)
Quote from Xyx »
Would you say Decimator of the Provinces is just "Budget Craterhoof Behemoth"? Or is there actual potential for it to be better in certain decks?
Quote from iemsparticus »Decimator of the Provinces can't be emerged for less than GGG, but it DOES pump himself (note: it does not say "other" creatures you control...).
Quote from Wardbuyer »Decimator of the Provinces' ability triggers on cast. He's not a creature you control when the ability resolves, and thus does not get buffed.
Quote from Xyx »
By the way, is it just me, or does Decimator have super awesome art?
Quote from Xyx »Bruna does work with Emeria Shepherd. If you play a non-Plains land (Myriad Landscape or even Emeria, the Sky Ruin), you can return Bruna to your hand (and either cast her again or hold her until someone kills your Shepherd.)
Quote from Xyx »This is my pick for most awesome card in the set and I'm totally going to jam it, but I'm not overly optimistic.
Quote from Xyx »I wouldn't summarily dismiss Cryptic Command either (but I would Summary Dismissal it.)
Quote from CadaverousBl00m »You did get that Mind's Dilation is going to let you cast your opponents' stuff, right? That's without me checking the audio review, but comparing it to Lurking Predators (which lets you cast your own stuff) makes it a little confusing.
All the same, I'm hyped for it too, and I'm sure I'll have a crack at making it work at some point. I suspect it's going to end up a $1 mythic at some point, so I'm waiting until then before I spring for them.

Quote from Xyx »However, Nephalia Academy only works when your opponents make you discard.
Summary Dismissal: You can dismiss this or any other 4 CMC counterspell for that matter. Except maybe Dismiss. God damnit. All jokes aside this card is way too slow and shouldn't even be played as a counter-measure to Storm spells.

I don't know if it's enough for you to push it into "niche" territory but I was excited to pick up a copy of this card for my Jeskai Sunforger toolbox deck, replacing Dismiss as the catch-all generic counterspell. There's no Storm in my meta, but I do like how it can handle anything on the stack--it can "counter" that Emrakul, The Aeons Torn or act as a Stifle for threats that are already on the board.
Just so we're clear, you're aware that Sunforger can't fetch Blue spells correct?

I certainly was not . Looks like I owe some friends a few *s on games where I played it that way. Thanks for catching my blunder.
