Quote from Al_Z_Heimer »I like it too, especially since I'm looking for a good reason to cut Valley Dasher, but I think it will be my weakest red 2-drop from then on, till the next real staple comes.

Fathom Seer > Write into Being: The Seer is quite boring and I'm really interested to see how Write into Being performes. It also keeps 2 face down cards in blue... (idem white)
Quote from Al_Z_Heimer »Quote from Runner5678 »Temur Battle Rage definitely deserves your consideration.Do you think so? It's simply the monocolored version of Double Cleave (I don't see trample as a huge upside) and I can't see myself playing any red combat trick, when there are so many good burn spells I don't have slots for.

Quote from Runner5678 »I mean maybe. The key here is that he doesn't see Trample as a huge upside. So if you ignore the Trample part, the card is strictly worse than Double Cleave. Double Cleave sees literally no play. In order for Temur Battle Rage to be a good card for you, you need to value Trample and need to expect to have Ferocious active fairly often. I think it'll happen often enough that it'll be worth considering and Al doesn't, that's the discussion.
I see it as a Double Strike, combat trick, wall murderer, etc. that has the upside of stealing games with Ferocious activated crashing over blockers Berserk-style. All that said, I still probably won't play it tbh. But I'm considering it.

What 4 simic cards do you consider better than Ethereal Ambush? It's the only Manifest card I'm interested in without playing the mechanic yet because I think for two tokens, it's a pretty fair cost. 4-power flash for 5 mana isn't that bad. I guess Beetleback Mage and Snakeform are definitely better. Then Temporal Spring, Shambleshark and Assault Zepellid are close but by no means runaways for the 3rd and 4th simic slots. So if you classify Snakeform as something else for being hybrid, it easily can make a 3-card or even a 2-card list.
