    Man, did you know Engineered Plague flavor text or did you search for clues like a crazy dude ? That is spot on no matter what !

    I don't know where the mechanic is going, but I want this set to stuff me with snow cards. I wish they give us fetchable dual snowlands, even though they're just one basic type, like :

    Snow Temple Garden

    Snow Land - Forest

    Pay 2 life, T: Add W.

    Nah, the card is super niche, the demand will drop within time. If ever Urza pushes a deck into Tier 1 status, there will be a high demand, but for now, I would guess the price spikes because of Commander.

    I'm like SirPsychoMantis, I dropped the thread and deck a while ago, but this set awakens my curiosity for some decks again.

    I agree, this card is stupid on paper. It doesn't stack and can't save a creature at instant speed, but the deck has enough material to protect the creatures anyway.
    It makes me want to force 4x Blossoming Defenses, and maybe 2x Spellskite in the maindeck.

    The set already has good cards for Modern.
    That being said this ranger has no purpose in Humans. It's a bad anti-wrath card.

    Meh. It's curious nobody mentionned the anti-Leyline of Sanctity Grapeshot : Fists of Flame. The card is both castable and fits the plan. It's one more win con amongst many though.

    Urza is cute here, and super expensive. I never managed to cast Paradoxical Outcome with this deck, I still don't get how players can be seduced by 4-drops. Since we don't make infinite mana, I'm doubtful you can do anything with Urza's last ability that a cheaper win con would do.

    Giver of Runes is cute, I think it's no better than Swan Song.

    It counters Dread of Night and Sulfur Elemental for Legacy D&T (and in some case Massacre, etc... yuo get the point). It's too narrow then. Unless we get a Misthollow Griffin-like creature in white, this card is probably garbage ?

    I don't see any use in Modern.

    I don't know what to do with this, but it's a tutor, so it's a combo card. Somewhere. Someday.

    Two Givers on the bf are also pretty hard to get rid of.

    This card helps Geist of Saint-Traft and even Gideon Blackblade get through blockers. I see this card in many rogue decks actually. Modern never had a good white 1-drop (besides the niche Champion of the Parish) until now.

    The art, the flavour of the name "giver", so she only gives runes and can't protect herself, how generous ! The girl's face in the art reminds me of Emilia Clarke somehow.

    This card is great VS Affinity and Eldrazi, can also protect a creature from big Karn's and little Ugin's abilities, and Wurmcoil. And lets a finisher attack through those decks.

    @quamobrem : you're right, people will focus on that downside and call the card average, but she's still a pain in the butt to play against. I'm shocked this card passed the test.

    Now we're talking.
    In comparison to Tezz AoB, this 4-drop lets us play another spell from hand the turn we cast him, thanks to his mox sapphire ability. Good with Bridge.
    I don't think we even need a Station or another wincon, drawing all the spells let us end the turn with infinite life & an unbeatable board afaik.
    The only downside is that it's a creature, slightly more vulnerable than a PW, way more than an artifact (like Time Sieve), though kind of immune to hate. Worth a try !

    Overall, we don't run that many mountains. I realized it as I tried the card already. It probably makes it a playable 1-of, but certainly not a 2-of in my taste. We play like 4-5 mountains and 7 fetchlands, and even though we fetch for Vents most of the time, there are plenty of games where we don't see a fetch or a Vents at all.

    Another interesting card to me is the Horizon land : Fiery Islet. I don't know how many the deck can support though. We can probably cut a Spirebluff Canal and a Sulfur Falls.

    WOW. This cycle will boost constructed Magic in a big way. Auto-include in so many decks through many formats ! Gaping


    Wow.
