Ancestral Vision -> Search for Tomorrow
I think you mean Pull from Tomorrow?
Quote from AnaestheticCan you explain the purpose of this deck? I'm not understanding.
Are you just going to burn their life with spells and be aggressive with your creatures?
Quote from LucidVision »Will post adds in a couple days, but I don't EVER recall testing this many cards from a single set.
Feel like my card evaluation skills have gotten rose coloured or delusional, but maybe this set is just that good.
Quote from Salmo »It's just about reasonable expectations.
Quote from Goodking »I will say here (for want of a better venue), that I really hope Bontu is decent. So far I think we got two strong Gods and two pretty weak ones. Hopefully Bontu can make that a 3:2 split.

Some observations by deck played: Glory-Bound Initiate and Angel of Sanctions were played in a UW tempo agro deck. The Glory-Bound put pressure on well. It was annoying for a controlling deck to deal with it. The Angel was a fine roadblock to a reanimation deck, but the reanimation deck also had lots of removal. The control deck countered the Angel but couldn't counter the embalm which was really good.
Next Trueheart Duelist, Dread Wanderer, Liliana, with Gideon riding the sidebord of a WB Stacks Token deck. Duelist had some fine interactions with Stacks, and was embalmed once all night. Was fine. Gideon was in the WB agro decks sideboard. It was sided in a bunch but never drawn. Dread was also great with Stacks, no complaints at all. Liliana was great in this build. She made tokens for Stacks, recurred creatures that were sacrificed. The player was super happy every time she was cast.
Pull from Tomorrow, Curator of Mysteries, Manglehorn New Nissa were all drafted by the Temur control deck, mainly blue splash red and green. Pull and Curator were sideboard. The Pull was not necessary with the redundant card advantage the deck had through planeswalkers like Dack and 4 mana Darretti. The Curator was sided in often and the player was coming around on the card. Nothing great about it, but it does a lot of things OK, which might add up to a good card. Nissa was great all night. It was cast against me as a 3 drop, i didn't put enough pressure on it, he ultimated it to him me for 5 and deal 5 to my Chandra. I was able to deal with it there, but the player cast it all over the curve and it was great in that deck. Manglehorn ran into low artifact draws. The player discarded it a few times to looter, could have been good against a couple of decks, but didn't draw it when the opponents drew their artifacts.
Plague Belcher, Never to Return, and Rhonas the Indomitable were in a GB midrange deck. Never to Return in its first night had aftermath portion cast once where i can't remember ever seeing ruinous path being awakened, so added value on day one is nice. Plague Belcher didn't seem at its best, but there were some OK interactions, Curse of Perdition removing the counters is good, Rishkar negating the counters was OK as well. 5/4 menace is a good beater. Rhonas had about 6 cards in the deck that would have turned him on without the pump. The player claimed that it was good, and I saw a few board states where it would have, but need more data still.
Lastly Hazoret the Fervent was in a RG Wildfireless Wildfire deck. Didn't see any of the 2 wildfire cards in the draft. The ramp shell allowed the ability to empty my hand as well as use the discard ability. The highlight of the night was getting a Batterskull equipped with 1 card in hand, 9 life a turn is a bunch. 5 power hit hard, never got to haste it in this deck. The discard damage being able to redirect to planeswalkers is great. Overall, for a card I was intending to be an agro curve topper only, performed well in a couple of games in deck where it might not be at its best.
Lots of cards I'm excited to try out again next week. A few that are already on my radar to cut.
