A New and Exciting Beginning
 
The End of an Era

    my thoughts now that we have the full spoiler:

    venerable knight: if i need another 2/1 for 1, this will be my guy.
    hypnotic sprite: flexible but not sure if it stacks up well against anything i currently run.
    foulmire knight: basically phyrexian rager with deathtouch for 1 more mana, but also not at the same time? idk, i'm not sure if i need this guy.
    order of midnight: obviously a strong card, but i don't support black aggro, so i feel like this one isn't for me.
    syr konrad, the grim: i like the effect, and the body is rather large. i could see switching up one of my blood artist effects for this guy.
    embereth shieldbreaker: a more flexible manic vandal. might just be a straight swap.
    mad ratter: i REALLY want this card to be good, but i feel like you just have to jump through so many hoops on a 4 mana 1/2. you get a ton of value out of the trigger but just not in a realistic way i think.
    beanstalk giant: ramp and fatty in one card. both modes are expensive but it just does everything a ramp deck wants to do, albeit slowly.
    keeper of fables: i feel like this can pretty reliably trigger, and the body is fine. just a shame that green 5s are actually quite strong, and have plenty of etbs, so it's hard to compare this against the rest really.
    syr faren, the hengehammer: it's a cc bear which isn't ideal, but the effect is strong, especially with equipment. i think this is a sweet green aggro card.
    grumgully, the generous: just provides good value at a good rate. big fan of it.
    savvy hunter: this card seems reasonably strong. i don't think it slides into my cube, but it's a pretty simple way to get card advantage in golgari.
    heraldic banner: i think this card is low key powerful, but i'm not sure what kind of decks want it. still think i'll find room though.
    sorcerer's broom: i think 3 mana might be too much sadly. love the card otherwise.

    probably not going to end up actually adding much, but the set looks fun as hell to draft.

    tbh overwhelmed apprentice makes me think more about whether i should cut omenspeaker for faerie seer than actually adding it.

    syr allin is worse than the cheaper anthem effects imo, but a 4/4 first striker is a big boy. i think we have better curve toppers still.

    syr faren looks sick. it is gg but i think the effect is super powerful, and a good role player in green aggro.

    sorcerer's broom is a card that i like a lot, but 3 mana is a ton. i could see myself finding room for it.

    epic downfall is a solid card, even at sorcery speed it competes with the big boy removal spells imo.

    grumgully, the generous: 20/74 of my green and red creatures are human. 3/3 for 3 is a good base body, and the ability seems good. i can see cutting voltaic brawler for this easily.

    venerable knight is another good 2/1 for 1, but i only run 4 other knights atm so i feel like it's generally gunna be vanilla. obviously this set could change that number though.

    hypnotic sprite seems good and flexible. it's an expensive counterspell, but this card seems like it plays very differently on the draw vs on the play, so the choice is very useful imo. and an evasive body is obviously welcome.

    enchanted carriage compares pretty poorly to renegade freighter and untethered express imo but it's not terrible.

    i really like covetous urge, but i'm a sucker for unique uncommon effects. quad hybrid isn't too terrible since it's basically just a flexible gold card, and the effect is definitely powerful, especially if you nab a card from their hand.

    so far i dig this set, even if not for cube, just general play looks like it'll be great.

    i'm really curious as to whether any of the adamant cards are gunna get there for us. ccc is a big deal in limited, so it'd have to be pretty strong, which we might not even get at uncommon. but we shall see, i'm definitely interested in the mechanic since it is just so simple but deep.

    foulmire knight and order of midnight look like solid adventures, since they're inherent 2 for 1s. evaluating them against other cube cards will be tricky though.

    syr konrad is an interesting effect which does have some redundancy, and also is on a big body for a change. makes reassembling skeleton just ridiculous in the aristocrat style deck since it triggers twice.

    maraleaf pixie is stupidly efficient but idk if i even want it to fill a guild slot.

    there are some less obvious enchantment cards, like aerie worshippers and pheres-band raiders for example. but overall i think the archetype is too parasitic, especially the payoff cards.

    yeah looking like it so far. rip the dream.

    technically we have two cards but one of them is 3 mana draw a card soooooo.

    scaretiller 4
    artifact creature - scarecrow
    whenever ~ becomes tapped, choose one: you may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield tapped; or return target land card from your graveyard to the battlefield tapped.
    1/4

    unique effect at peasant level, so that's cool. kind of attack trigger on a 1/4 means it can attack kind of reliably, but also 4 mana seems like a lot. good with deserts like ifnir deadlands, blighted lands, cryptic caves, evolving wilds. ramps you either way. i kinda like it but stats wise and kind of restrictive trigger make me hesitant.

    ancestral blade: bear that leaves behind equipment is a good rate. i dig it.

    brineborn cutthroat: looks decent in a tempo style deck, and even if you only get one counter on it i think it's a good card.
    cloudkin seer: good rate, if unexciting. 1 toughness will be the death of this though.
    spectral sailor: this is probably the best flying man we have. it is still a flying man.

    audacious thief: interesting riff on phyrexian rager but i don't think this gets there as a grey ogre that has to attack.
    blood for bones: good value reanimate spell, more along the lines of diabolic servitude than anything else. not sure if i have room for two of this effect though.
    bloodthirsty aerialist: on a good enough base body, this is one to consider if you support the old b/w lifegain deck.
    disfigure: i've been feeling like i should be running this for some time now. maybe i should.
    gorging vulture: decent card to fill your graveyard, and on a wind drake is nice.

    chandra, novice pyromancer: i might just run this. i wish i had friends to test with haha.
    scampering scorcher: basically hordeling outburst, trading a mana and haste for splashability and flicker synergy seems reasonable. seems like a good one.

    howling giant: not a bad top end. ramp targets with split bodies are pretty great, but i don't think this is better than any current options.
    woodland champion: this is great in basically any colour combination with green, so i'm gunna dunk it.

    empyrean eagle: yeah i think i like this over thunderclap wyvern. just so efficient.
    skyknight vanguard: if the token didn't have to attack i'd like this a hell of a lot more than i do.

    cryptic caves: definitely running this. our very own horizon canopy. Smile

    pretty ok with this set after getting so many goodies in the last two.

    so cloudkin seer looks cubeable. good, clean, efficient, flier. not setting the world on fire but damn good rate.

    Yeah could go either way with our flying lords. 3 mana seems stupidly efficient though.

    I dig our canopy land too. Welcome effect.

    We got a wind drake angel with +2/+2 if your life total is 25+ and it buffs your life gain by 1. Hard pass?

    i do like this a lot more than jaya even though the +1 does basically nothing. seems good to maybe push a bigger red deck than we're used to at peasant level, and also might be a good tool for red based control decks. idk i'm open to this being ok.
