    I have 9 things in my cube that exile rather than kill, so that's a pretty minor downside. It's crazy that 5 years ago this card would have been a windmill slam, 5/5 flyer for 5 that brainstorms ETB and scrys 2 on death (I also like the cute little detail that you can scry yourself closer to redrawing it after you shuffle it in).

    This might be the card that finally kills Miloku for us, but every time I start to think Miloku is unimpressive it crushes a draft.

    I am amazed this is a common.

    It's obviously no mulldrifter, but most cards aren't. I think seagate is a good comparison - it sees an extra card which is huge, and it's better at blocking x/1's, but it can't trade with x/2's and can't pressure opponents or PW's nearly as well as this guy. It's gonna come down to what your blue decks need - do they need another good blocker, or do they need a way to pressure opponents and especially their PW's?

    If I was still running oracle, I think I'd swap this in to test, but since I'm not, I don't think this makes it.

    Dig through time would be Much worse if it were sorcery.

    Hard pass in medium cubes, though it’s not a “bad” card. Maybe huge cubes would want it.

    Blue has an abundance of efficient card draw better than this.


    I wouldn't say blue has an abundance of better options than this, but certainly enough for me at 465. But if you are at the size where you want tidings, opportunity, or that level of draw spells, this is probably on par with those.

    Hexproof doesn't make up for ETB tapped. Unless you desperately need a 2nd lotus vale, I don't see why you'd play this. I guess if you supported the amulet of vigor deck....

    Sorcery speed kills this. At instant it would be a windmill slam of course, and probably way too good for standard.

    If you run a loam or knight of the reliquary package this is probably testable, with just a normal cube probably not.

    It attacks much better than mystic and triggers on all non-creatures, so assuming you can cast it, this is substantially better.

    I think baby jace is still better than either this PW or narset.

    Needed to be 1W on the front end to be cubable IMO.

    What, you don't all cube with lantern of insight? lol.

    Edit - Art is spot on though, and if you have a MP or EDH cube, this is probably a slam dunk.

    It's definitely a card that will pull people into spells matter and it's in the right colors for it. I play Soulfire Grand Master as my Jeskai card of choice, but most of the time it's a lifelink bear and I'd be happy to swap it out for something more interesting. I could definitely see Kykar being that card, despite the more restrictive casting cost. I'm interested.


    Same, and same, and Jeskai spells matter is a real deck. I expect it will end up being 1 mana too expensive, but I'm excited to try it. REALLY wish it was a 3/4.

    She seems worse than flamecaller to me at first blush. Only a little bit worse, but clearly worse.

    Ablaze stacks up damage faster with her plus, and it's nice that her minus is flexible. Of course, this Chandra has a lot more loyalty left after -3ing, and in a board stall her plus is better. Having a spot removal option is nice too, but I think having the card advantage mode on Ablaze makes her more flexible as a whole.

    I can be convinced otherwise, but as of now I like Ablaze more.


    Just curious, are you mistaking Chandra Ablaze for Chandra, Flamecaller?


    Yeah, I called her flamecaller first then started saying ablaze. I meant flamecaller. Ablaze it awful.

    Definitely better than it looks at first glance, but still not sure how I feel about it. Her -3 is very simiilar to JVP's Snapcaster mode, which is really nice. I won't be surprised if people tset this over Rabblemaster #4 or something.


    Worth noting it's a -2 so she can use it twice. 3 cmc walkers are usually better than they look, and she looks ok to me, so she's probably good. Good enough to break into red's 3's remains to be seen.

    I prefer Death’s Majesty due to lower cmc and better Reanimator / Recurring Nightmare support. Dreadhorde General can be very matchup dependent.


    I haven't yet played with dreadhorde general, but I've had Death's majesty in since she came out and have been pretty impressed. She's a very good midrange planeswalker.
