    The floor on this is another 3 mana lord. That alone gives it a home in pretty much every goblin deck forever. And that's the floor. Even 2 damage a turn at any target is very doable and very nice.

    Price is irrelevant and very reasonable.

    .......What? Price is irrelevant? What?

    Every commander player will want these foils which will only rise in market value year after year

    I don't want these foil or at all, so I guess it's not "every commander player" now is it?

    A purchase delayed is an investment denied

    Well dang, with that logic I should buy everything ever just in case it goes up in price later. Never save, always spend.

    Except it's not everything. to top the etched foils with the artist who did the Moxen, Wizards would have to do something REALLY cool. And the signets are in absolutely massive demand. They are crazy popular staples in the format that cares about bling. Obviously these have an upper limit, but if i had X dollars to park in these or dual lands for 5 years, the etched foil of these would have much better returns. there is a big difference between 'buy everything and hope' and 'pull the trigger on pretty much the safest bet in town.'

    I feel like I need to go yell at whichever jerk hates Tron so much. The first bit of actual snow hate is great, but Sinkhole for Tron? Seriously? This set has been HOSTILE

    well...wow. 8/8 flier for UU. idk if it's enough for Modern, but this seems like the go-to finisher for mono-blue EDH

    I don't know if it is instead of or in addition to Sage in Muldrotha, but it definitely makes the cut

    Well Tuvasa is the better commander, but I will take as many of this effect as i can get in that deck Smile

    For my Kenrith deck i use Walking Ballista. It's a really powerful defense once you charge it up, and there's limited temptation to abuse it. It does more than just win. My deck is pillow fort and it just gets my extra mana, gives one more reason not to swing because it can mow down half the battlefield

    Food is irrelevant, but with Treasure it feels like a serious staple. Very nice

    I dont understand completely from a color pie, design and phylosofical perspective why the hell the overload must be payed with white mana.
    Overload mean one-side mass destruction. But "destroy all creatures you don't control" as always has been a monoblack effect (see Overwhelming Forces, In Garruk's Wake Plague Wind, Dread Cacodemon, Rain of Daggers etc.). That makes sense since black is a selfish color that wants to win at any cost

    On the other hand, every single one white mass removal has always been symmetrical because it is in the color phylosophy the concept of balance, justice, order and equal retribution to everyone.

    Somebody please explain me why this card can't be monoblack and I am forced to use a color that would do as a result, the exact opposite of what said color should do normally.

    The overload is Wrath of God, 'you don't control' is not on there. It's not Cyclonic Rift Smile

    Quote from Lectrys »
    Kaldra Compleat not having Lifelink will ensure that Batterskull will still have a slot in every Stoneforge Mystic deck, but it's one heck of a clock for SFM decks, especially since combo will be speeding up after Modern Horizons 2 is released.

    Kaldra Compleat luckily dodges Kolaghan's Command (one of Batterskull's bigger weaknesses). Note that the Germ it's attached to can still be Dismembered, exiled (e.g. Path to Exile), or bounced (e.g. Teferi, Time Raveler).

    Kaldra Compleat's equip cost is through the roof (unlike Batterskull's), so that's pretty harsh punishment for losing the Germ token. As a result, tutoring for Batterskull or a Sword is less risky against certain decks (although tutoring for a Sword is increasingly overrated if you can't stick any equipment carriers), although Kaldra Compleat is at its best against combo decks.

    SFM has actually been losing a foothold in Modern lately (R/x Prowess kills it too well and too consistently, UWx Control keeps managing to deal with it in time, midrange-combo decks keep being faster than it, Tron decks go bigger than it fast, Colossus Hammer Time outspeeds it, Batterskull isn't outsizing Scourge of the Skyclaves if it comes down too late...). Guess Kaldra Compleat will give SFM a heck of a shot in the arm instead of breaking it.

    ...Ironically, might Green Tron want Kaldra Compleat? It's got Haste, it's indestructible, it blocks quite well, it dodges all their board wipes, it at least has 5 power, it has enough evasion to get at opposing Karn, the Great Creator, Green Tron can actually pay the equip cost...although not gaining life is an absolute bummer and is what has driven others to spam Wurmcoil Engine and me to spam Thragtusk.

    Green Tron definitely wants this I think, at least mine certainly does. Don't forget that with Living Weapon, the initial 7 also gets you the first equip for no extra mana. I am trying to think where this ends up and what i cut, but I definitely think it's in.

    I want to do something with this card, but it is the most blatant example of Wizards watching the secondary market this set. THis is a mythic in EVERY world where it's not about secondary market prices. Coffers is rare, this is mythic. if 'balanced for draft' is even ONE of the considerations, the dragon as hard to cast as an ultimatum is not rare

    I don't think it sees any Modern play, 4 mana is a good bit. but a free sac outlet, EDH makes it a $3-5 uncommon
