    I'm torn when it comes to this card. I don't like spending more than 2 mana (3 in certain cases like Cultivate since it also means I'll not miss a land drop and continue the flow) on ramp. At the same time, this leaves me with 3 mana open so I'm not spending a whole turn to make my next turn slightly better. I just never could decide on whether or not to add it.

    Ahhh I remember when it first came out. Tons of people tried it out because it looked so fun. I always liked how people would only aim that at me thinking they're gonna get a cool dragon or a big ramp/draw spell. Every single time they wind up getting a counterspell or have spent 4 mana for a signet and I never saw this card again until this thread.

    Part of me is excited to see another Sarkhan the other part is dreading it because I'm still pretty sure Nicol Bolas is gonna do a "totally not thanos we swear" and he will be part of it. If this is the last Sarkhan Vol it better be one I deem usable.

    Edit: oh dear Ashiok. I hardly got to know ye...;_;

    It's easy to laugh at that thing until you realize how easy it is to make it off someone in a single hit thanks to infect. Granted your little trickery is good at making sure your target is in last place but you have quite the climb to make for first place with two other players that are now very much aware that you're not just trying to be cute.

    My Phelddagrif also wins without combos. I just make myself as immortal as I possibly can until everyone eventually draws out from all my Howling Mine type permanents and Prosperity type spells. Sure it's not reliable especially when a group already knows the ruse but it's certainly funny.

    I'd say I'm 1.75. I just go with meme-y builds like dragons or homelands commander voltrons but the thing is I know what I'm doing with those builds.

    Honestly I feel that culture has more issues with Boris trying to destroy all Rockies and Bullwinkles more than they do with him trying to destroy all lands.

    Planeswalkers have very short lifespans in multiplayer games so I prefer the ones that make a good immediate impact from the get-go rather than the ones where you uptick with small effects and pray for a chance to use that last ability. Thus I consider this version of Chandra to be pretty solid.

    I will laugh so hard if Bolas is thwarted when he thought victory was at hand only for Fblthp to suddenly ignite its spark that it somehow had, resulting in an explosion that takes out the Immortal Sun and the Eternals. Like, that's why Chandra is so troubled in the comic she's just still trying to piece together as to what the heck any of that even was.

    It's a solid dork but I just feel people are doing it wrong when they're not using The Dark's version.

    If the Gatewatch falters and the Planeswalkers fail, the curtain will fall on the age of heroes—and rise on the infinite reign of Nicol Bolas."

    And this here is exactly why Bolas can't possibly win, or the rest of Magic will just be a series of postcard sets called 'Bolas visits Ixalan', 'Bolas visits Innistrad', 'Bolas visits Kaladesh' etc., each featuring a PW card called 'Bolas - God of [plane]', with art depicting him laughing maniacly against an assortment of backgrounds. Grin

    Not gonna lie I'd buy the heck out of "Bolas Visits Ixlan". That set would've been a lot more interesting if its cards featured Nicol Bolas shopping around, sunbathing at a Rootbound Crag, having a good time with how much smaller the dinosaurs are than him.

    I like to think Jace is just holding this card and the Gerrard Capashen card while smirking. "Heh, these were supposed to represent the original face of Magic the Gathering huh?"

    Dramatic Reversal


    I've only ever seen this card do nothing or end the game immediately.

    You know, the funny thing is I think this card really encapsulates most of everything that went wrong with Kaladesh. Like, we have the Not Avengers getting ready to fight the Not Empire, it goes broken with artifacts, it tries to be sneaky about its brokenness ("Oh what's the worst that this cheap common can do-wait what, seriously?"), and we have Ajani sitting in the back making strange faces at us until he brute forces his way into our nightmares.

    Yeah I evaluated yesterday's card because I had a lot more to say about that than I did today's card. Like, all I can think of for Widespread Panic is that it's a straight to home video sequel to Stranglehold.

    I also just want to add most of the time MLD has been used just to answer my ramping, I would recover faster than everyone else and be at the advantage again. MLD is a piece of your answer, not THE answer. You need to make surethe ramp player isn't already far ahead on the frontlines and you also have pressure of your own to go with it to take out the ramp player (and everyone else ideally) while they're rebuilding.

  • posted a message on What is Draconic Dominance Missing?
    My general principal for my build is to be very careful about running any sort of ramp that costs more than 3 mana and even then the vast majority should cost 2 at most. A good chunk of the deck is going to be 6+ drops so you kinda need to keep the curve for the rest of the deck as low as you can. The only exception I keep in my deck is Oracle of Mul Daya because she forms some good engines with my Crucible of Worlds, fetches, and Haven of the Spirit Dragon package.
