    Nope


    Niv, Etrata, and Lazav are great. Emmara, and Izoni are meh. Aurelia is pretty bad as a commander and while it’s possible Tajic is good I’m not holding my breath, but what do you expect from Boros?

    Also maybe stop baiting? “Oh this sucks” statements with no explanations about your opinion don’t contribute anything to the conversation and make you look childish.


    I didn't care to explain because i thought it was clear as day, NiV is basicallyNiv-Mizzet, Firemind that can't be countered, to be honestly i don't know why they just didn't reprint him, it would be a lot easier for them. Etrata and Lazav aren't great, they do have potential (as standard cards, maybe Brawl) but my post was about EDH.

    Niv is the only legendary creature in the set in which i would actually use, simply because if you can get him on the board along with the Firemind, you can do some crazy stuff, but the other card aren't good even as part of the 99, the perfect example of this is Emmara, in standard she has potential (if GW aggro becomes a thing again) but she is useless in every other format, and for me that is a problem simply because she is legendary, most competitive players don't care about the lore, on the other hand a great deal of EDH players do care about the lore, and legendary creatures (Generals) are the most important characters in the lore along with walkers, if WOTC wanted they could've made her into a good general, or at least as a part of the 99 in a token deck, tokens being you know, the Selesnya thing?.

    Anyway, there's no point in ranting about it, it's already set in stone, like i said in a previous post, WOTC has nothing to gain by designing cards for eternal players, 99% of their money comes from standard players who like buying boxes and sh**.


    Um The new Lazav is a beast in commander. You can reasonably kill turn 4-5 with him. And he allows for a lot of versatility vs the old Lazav....

    Seems like a really fun way to screw with control in Zedruu decks...

    Between this, the new Undergrowth giant that hits for undergrowth on ETB, and the new reanimator, Surveil.dec may be a thing.

    Include 4-of of the 1 mana 2/2, 4 narcoembas, and 2 copies of Doom Whisperer amd you are solid.

  • posted a message on Mothership 9/14 - Trostani, and others
    The problem i see with all these token builds is that deafening clarion, the b boardwipe we just got, and others kind of kill them...

    I mean sure, trostani is 5 power across 3 bodies but one clarion and she is reduced to 1/4... and since she doesnt consistently generate tokens you are sol...

    As a mythic AND guildleader, she should be generating tokens constantly...

    With the drain spell that casts for free if milled, the Lotleth Giant may see in play in standard in UB surveil. Reanimate him with Concoct and easily kill an enemy.

    I don't think it's busted, but it's a nice build-around card.

    I see it as a cheap, better Morphling, if built around. With a Slippery Bogle, Slither Blade, and Hunted Horror in your graveyard, you have a:

    Lazav, the Graveling UB
    Creature - Shapeshifter
    1: ~ has hexproof.
    1: ~ can't be blocked.
    2: ~ becomes a 7/7
    1/3

    I'm sure that better Gatherer searchers and other formats will see better stuff (like the Dreadnought).

    I think that what sells this cards is: it's VERY cheap, and the ability is instant-speed.


    Put Vector Asp and Phyrexian Dreadnaught in your yard and he turns into an instant kill

    Just earlier today I made a post about how most Magic players are absolutely awful at evaluating cards. And then we get this and most people seem to think this will be close to Snapcaster.

    It won't. It's not a bad card but it's nowhere near as good as Snapcaster.


    Actually in some instances it is better than snapcaster... for instance:

    Narset Commander
    Shu Yun
    Delver may want a mix of both to keep NC-C ratio high

    So Cockatrice has already broke Lazav in commander..

    Vector Asp
    [card} Phyrexian Dreadnaught[/card]
    ornithopter

    1 mana turn Lazav into Asp and use asp ability to grant infect.
    0 mana to turn into thopter to fly over blockers
    1 mana to turn into Dreadnaught so you have a 12/12 infecter.
