    I also like Fumigate much more than this. The ability to gain life instantly is huge for stabilizing against aggro, plus the life gain allows you to slow roll it vs less aggressive decks, giving your opponent time to commit more to the board.

    In an era where there's plenty of 5-6cmc walkers that are win conditions with removal / sweepers attached to them, I don't see how this competes.

    Both red and green are stacked to the brim with amazing 5-drops. Unless you're guaranteed 4-5 cards, this often won't be worth it. Needs to be Mystic Confluence level of a card to break into this slot, or like Plow Under with a built-in Lightning Bolt or something.

    A cubeable card, but I'm not a fan of this card at all. There's too much competition for both wraths and 5-cmc cards in control decks. Often time if I get two 4-cmc Wrath variants while drafting a control deck, one of them will sit in the sideboard. Same thing happened with Fumigate, as will this. No evasion reminds me a lot of Commence the Endgame, which I'm not a fan of.

    Edit: Also, this thread is missing the card title.


    Fixed.

    "Castle of Locthwain"
    Land
    Castle of Locthwain enters the battlefield untapped, if you control a swamp.

    T: Add B.

    1BB, T: Draw a card, then you lose life equal to the number of cards in your hand.

    Very low opportunity cost for some late-game flood insurance. Not always entering the battlefield tapped and tapping for colored mana is especially nice. The lifeloss can be quite steep, especially against aggro. I'm a bit skeptical, but I might give this a test.

    Greatness, at any cost!

    Decent uncommon. Not great on its own, but this is a persist combo enabler for those who are into that. It's pretty convenient that all the original persist cards are from Lorwyn, a plane without humans, hehe.

    Pass. Conditionals like this aren't worth the hoops jumping through, especially when those conditions rely on my opponent's game state. Fueling your opponent's graveyard can be dangerous in a lot of scenarios. Blue can do way better things with less conditions.

    It's the best Endless One variant. Trample is especially nice on scalable creatures. Cubeable, but no deck particularly wants / needs it, which relegates this to a filler card that can be played in any deck that doesn't involve Oath of Druids.


    There's a pretty wide swath of aggro and midrange decks that would beg to differ Smile


    This is going to be card 23-26 in pretty much all of my aggro / midrange decks.

    I've always wanted an updated Fire Imp that can hit any target or have bigger stats, but this fits the bill quite nicely. What I like most about this card is that it finally gives red an answer to a blocking True-Name Nemesis.

    I don't like this at all. A 6-cmc creature shouldn't be this double-edged. Even if built around, I don't think this is any better than most 5-cmc token generators or something like Captain of the Watch.

    In a lot of scenarios, this card will be a win / lose more card. I'd much rather have something like Catastrophe that can either just seal the deal if I'm already winning or reset the board if I'm losing.

    Seems a bit middle of the road for me. There's no shortage of blue value spells, and UUU really hurts since it's already rubbing shoulders with Vedalken Shackles / Cryptic Command / Cavalier of Gales. This not triggering on any instant / sorcery really hurts since a good chunk of blue's instants are counters.

    Cubeable card, but nothing spectacular, especially in the color with the most competition.

    Is it just me, or it's the best card we've seen so far in the spoiler season?


    I certainly think this is the best card so far


    This and Shieldbreaker are the top 2 for me.
