    Oath of Nissa, Flagstones of Trokair, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Eiganjo Castle, Mox Amber and Vivien's Arkbow come to mind. The idea isn't to mill cards, it's just to discard the right one and reanimate it while playing a bunch of legendary you proactively sacrifice (either because of the legend rule or with abilities like the new Elvish Reclaimer). Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is another discard outlet, Liliana of the Veil too.
    Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is an obvious BFF.

    I don't know what to do in standard with it, and in Modern it's probably super janky, but wow it offers some spicy deck design space.



    The thing is... I have seen decks that want cards in the yard and NOT try to be mill or basic reanimator and it doesn’t go well... and intentionally running cards that you just want to exile is dumb... and you are jumping through all these hoops for... rather minor benefits... I just don’t see this being very good in practice

    Honestly people are really sitting in Magical Christmas land with this guy... the only way his ability can be used with even remote frequency is if you mill yourself. But then we are in a catch 22. In order for his ability to have the most oomph, you need a lot of legendaries. But in order to use his reanimating ability with any frequency, you need to fill up the yard, but thosevery same self mill cards are rarely legendary... meaning you need to stock up on more non-legendary spells.

    This guy is a big old catch 22...

    Honestly I don’t see why people are upset about non-basics st common.., they let people build decent mana bases without dropping the money for rare lands...

    I mean I remeber the horror that was SCM/INN/RTR time with manabases being nearly $200 themselves...

    Honestly, the need to exile 2 legendaries in order to use his ability I think puts a dampen on this abusiveness. Puts a really painful limitation on him

    Knight of the Reliquary younger brother.

    card is fine, but I don't really see this being played over big brother anywhere both are legal, really.


    Except this card costs 1 instead of 3, is only 1 color instead of 2, and lets you sacrifice ANY land to tutor instead of specifically a forest or plains...

    Kind of big differences there...

    Idk what is going on with the power level this core set... this guy is rediculous... funny part? He isn’t even the most broke card this set... (that honor goes to either our Legendary Scout or the freaking elf...)

    I'm a little wary about this because he's so tribal focused on a tribe that isn't really as focused or as well supported as a lot of the more popular ones like Elves or Goblins. Like Dusk707, I also wish that he supported his own abilities somehow. Mayhe he could have been a 2/2 and created a little 1/1 elemental before his damage ability triggered or maybe his etb ability could have read "target elemental deals damage equal to its power to any target" instead. That way his first ability would have more synergy with his second one while also not needing 3+ elementals on board already to be impactful.

    That being said, I kinds like him. I enjoy his color combo and that alone combined with the draw landfall trigger makes me think he could at least be okay as a temur landfall commander.


    Dude you'd be surprised by how many elementals there are. It's the first thing I learned building the tribe for commander. Currently I think they are the 6/7th most frequently occurring creature type out there. Certainly more than with either elves or goblins. They might not be as focused as other, more typical, tribes but I think being all over the place is their charm. If nothing else they kinda act like a swiss army knife of options in games with each one providing a tool. Granted this Omnath doesn't really provide anything new it still has some neat synergy with the tribe.


    Funny thing a lot of people tend to forget... there are ALOT of red cards that poop out 1/1 elemental cards...
