aggressive threat concealed as an answer
I mean, how many times in pioneer has Veil been cast to stop an actual threat instead of an answer?
I imagine you are probably right... but that ain't gonna stop players from despising combo and demanding it be categorically banned.
Opponents hate playing against combo, opponents hate playing against control, opponents hate playing against tempo... good thing God gave us midrange, amirite? Nobody could ever hate midrange...
Mimic is a bad Lord, but not because he's an artifact
What makes it unreliable?
If I'm in the play I'll just hold him, and play the other stuff in my hand
I mean why would you want to have all the answers in your deck in game 1, are control players now a days that greedy?
think its too early for them to sack abundance right away, people will eventually put enchantment/artifact hate in their SB.
