    I love the 2 damage but 2 mana is too much. Maybe at 1.

    In my cube, I have 17 artifact creatures that relevantly can't be hit by GffT.

    It looks like I have ~19 creatures that get counters of some variety. However, some of those will die from losing their counters and this can sometimes kill a gideon, whereas GffT usually can't, so I think it's a wash.

    I think they best thing will be to look at how often big artifacts are being cheated into play in your cube and how often GffT not being able to deal with them is a problem.

    Bummed that you can't play all the O-ring variants with this, but it's still fantastic lol.

    Off the top of my head here's some fun interactions in my cube - mind stone, sakura-tribe elder, hellspark, selfless spirit, & dauntless bodyguard.

    Ehhh, but squee never really impacts the board and has a set ceiling on it's value - you get 1 extra card a turn.

    This with stuff like frantic search, compulsive research, thirst, WHEEL(!!), etc is where the real value is. Then with your grip full of cards you can probably clear the way for your 5/3 to get through.

    Although, I've never liked Squee, so that's probably coloring my opinion.

    I think Draining Whelk is probably just better on average? Not being able to hit PW's is a huge downside. I think I'd run whelk, mystic snake, and frilled mystic before I wanted this guy.

    This is way worse than Thrunn IMO, since he can survive wraths and combat and is a 4/4. Yeah, this gets to counter a removal spell for value, but that doesn't make up for all the other ways it's worse.

    Plus Thrunn is pretty mediocre nowadays. He's on the chopping block for me.

    Ehhh, the mono-R version is pretty meh (sorcery speed and not to face), and I don't even know how much better the jeskai version is as that effect is really only good if you're racing.

    I think Ryansake was saying they'd cube this card if it was exactly the same except instead of companion it had ETB draw a card - so 3/2 flash etb fork and draw a card (as a comparison for people underrating it because the companion is basically always better than the draw a card). I think I'd probably cube that.

    I like this card a lot. Izzet is soooo stacked though. I'll get a copy to rotate in, or maybe I'll just call it my Jeskai card since it's so good in UWR spells matter.

    FWIW I don't think this card is 40% as good as some of the best cards in unpowered vintage without the companion clause.

    Yeah I'm not cutting mulldrifter for this, but I am definitely gonna find room to test this.

    Edit - Probably finally the end of Miloku.

    I think this card is very, very, very good. I also think taking it over power (real power like moxen, sol ring, lotus, crypt) would be insane. I think it's easily a first-pick quality card in my cube (vintage unpowered), but there are also still cards I would pick over it - JTMS, recurring nightmare, mind twist, 4cmc gideon, maybe fractured identity, and probably more I'm forgetting.

    I think this card is great. I'm not worried about it breaking cube.

    I don't think this is better than deathrite (that card does SO MUCH WORK), but I run 4 cards per guild and am still running lotleth troll, which is a pet card of mine, but I will definitely test this in its place (I only run Trophy of the trophy/pulse/decay set).

    My opinion is probably also colored by the fact that I have 1 card for each tri-color in my cube. The current one is Tasigur, and there's no way this is better than Tasigur.

    So this makes Twinflame into essentially a one card combo?


    No, the ETB only happens if you cast it. It doesn't work with token copies or blink effects.


    Ah, missed that stipulation and assumed it was exactly the same as Dualcaster


    It's also only your spells, so it's worse in 2 ways than dualcaster (although the companion clause and hybrid massively more than makeup for these shortcomings).
