Quote from Prid3 »Improvise: I'm extremely underwhelmed by Improvise. ...the most interesting application of Improvise is with "Orbs" such as Winter Orb, Trinisphere and Static Orb...this is easily its most compelling MP application.

I do wonder whether you overrate Sram.

Ward's stock has been significantly rising lately (at least in my mind). Seems pretty clear they feel it's too good to ever reprint in Standard so I probably wouldn't wait forever to pick some up if you were thinking about it.
Quote from LukeFoley »I think it's worth noting that all the expertise cards can not only cheat in the costless suspend cards, they can cast the Fused form or expensive side of split cards if either side fulfills the CMC requirement. Beck // Call, Breaking // Entering, and Boom // Bust are the most relevant.
Quote from FGC »Kari Zev, Skyship Raider I could see myself playing this card in some red deck. It could either deal some damages in the first turns or just defend with 3 armor, after that it could create sacrifice fodder or ETB-trigger every turn. That deck would most likely have goblin bombardment and/or Impact Tremors. I wouldn't play it over Goblin War-Marshal, but maybe they could work in the same deck. Would it be good enough or just cute? I don't even know.
Quote from FGC »Metallic Mimic is another card that has gotten no attention from you. Some day Shaman Tribal deck becomes the ultimate meta deck and you will regret that you didn't notice this card! Or what I was actually thinking is that this card is a combo piece with a card that has persist and any only-sac-to-activate sac outlet. Alternative to Melira, Sylvok Outcast.

As for your top 10 list: I think Planar Bridge deserves a spot in there. I can't really say anything more about it than what you already said and what you said should be enough to put it in top 10.
Quote from iemsparticus »Prid3, I would love to see your working list for you blue based stax deck... sounds like total gas to me, and something so would enjoy slinging.
Quote from Xyx »How does a Sram Commander deck win? You can have ALL THE BONE SAWS... but then what?
Quote from Xyx »If you're just using it to counter counterspells, isn't Negate "strictly" worse than Dispel and Swan Song?
Quote from Xyx »You mention that Walking Ballista combos with black recursion but it just comes back as a 0/0. It still functions in the Mike & Trike combo, though.
Quote from Atanar »Metallic Mimic's value is that it enables some fringe tribal decks. Aside from the already mentioned shaman deck, it has a home in my "cheap dragons" deck with Slumbering Dragon/Dragon Tempest which was exactly missing a good 2-drop.

Edit: I'd also like to point out that you strayed pretty far from "As such this set review is solely focused towards the multiplayer crowd with an emphasis on budget-minded, fair Magic" in your review
Quote from Xyx »Quote from Prid3 »Now, bear in kind that I've only had a few days to build and test this deck so by no means do I have a perfect 99 just yet. It's way too early to have everything optimized. The point is that I'm playing a monowhite deck that can legitimately clear the table on turn 2 (I've done that) and that can routinely win on turn 4-6 (again, that's the average use-case).That sounds pretty damn good! Please show me a list once you feel you've fine-tuned it. Sounds like something I'd enjoy goldfishing.

Quote from Morphling »So, was trying to figure out a way to get cute with Improvise mechanic in multiplayer.

One of the first decks that I tested was just 4x Battle at the Bridge, 4x Jet Medallion and 4x Whatever the Demon is Called because Jet Medallion is ostensibly Sol Ring when you're using it to cast Improvise spells. Never got anywhere with it but that might help with your idea since the card is solid when you're playing a deck with Dread Summons, Mind Grind, etc.

Quote from Morphling »Dread Summons I've never seen THAT card before.
