I'm with you. It's fine and wight of Prentice 6 was an ok body, I like that it is a hybrid and maybe I will squueze it in my rainbow section. But I am going to pull drs for Meren not this guy. It has a strong Yisan, the Wanderer Bard vibe. Interesting, maybe fun but a lot of set up, lot of turns, lots of mana. So there has to be an amazing game ending combo at the end of that rainbow to be worth it.
Quote from Fredo »For those wondering what other are seeing in this card: maybe you are expecting too much from this. The bar for a hybrid 2-drop shouldn't be too high, and this creature will often be a 3/3 or 4/4 for 2 mana, with additional utility strapped to it. That's plenty good for how easily you can include this card in your deck and how easy it is to cast.
Of course I guess how easy it is to give this card a cube slot depends on how you categorize and/or impose caps on hybrids. If you group hybrids together with true multi-color cards it's going to be *much* tougher to find a slot than if you don't. For us it's very easy as we don't put any caps on hybrids, we basically include them if we think they would add something beneficial to the cube, and then tweak the size of the colored sections to the amount of hybrids each has access to. That works pretty well.
Just a thought
