Quote from asmallcat »Eh, I think this is just Tombstalker way too much of the time, which isn't great. In order to be better than tombstalker you need to have 3 spells to exile, which means it's only a great early play in the spells matter deck, and that deck has better cards that only fit in it IMO.
I know I am the odd-one-out here, but I've been keeping Tombstalker around for some time, and generally love the card. At the moment I haven't played him at 360 for a the last few years, but he is definitely in if I expand to 540. While not a very exciting card, it has won me so incredibly many matches in poxy, more grindy decks. As a play I am a major fan of grindy/prison style decks, where Tombstalker fits very well. I know he is not an objectively good card, he is a personal preference, but I also think he is slightly underrated/overlooked.
I think I will try out Murktide, but I don't think blue fits the poxy, low-resource style play as well, so I don't think it will play that well in the end. Testing will show.
