The card is way too cute in my book:
1- Humans want evasion on good bodies, not just good bodies. There's a reason why Anafenza, the Foremost isn't played : big grounders suck in the format, unless they're 7/8 Awoken Horrors or 8/8 Death's Shadows. Even Tarmogoyf is kinda obsolete nowadays.
2- It has to sac itself to protect the board, that's bad. It's gonna eat a spot removal anyway. So what we have here is a worse Selfless Spirit, because it has no evasion, costs more mana and prevents only sorcery speed interaction.
3- You mention Thraben Inspector but this card isn't played in Humans. Overall, what it tutors is what we don't want to topdeck : Champ and Noble. He's worse than Militia Bugler.
Don't let the mythic rarity nor the art on the card seduce you, it's probably garbage for Humans.

May 24, 2019Posted in: The Rumor MillI fail to see how cards like this couldn't be printed in a normal Standard-legal set.
It could be, just wasn't. A card has to fit an environment. Plague Mare and Goblin Chainwhirler are already in Standard, so redundancy is also a factor.
Some cards in this set could be printed for standard, I fail to see your point. MH1 isn't supposed to print only cards that can't fit in a standard-legal set.

What is it with Counterspell seriously ? They don't have the gift they order Santa Claus, so they sulk and let everyone know on the internet ? Is it really the one card that defines whether this set is good or not ? Aren't the 4 counter spells revealed enough yet ?
Why can't those people enjoy the good stuff and deal with it ? One can enjoy :
1- what's gonna be the limited environment of MH1,
2- some playable niche cards for tier 3 decks,
3- some flashy cards for tier 1-2 decks,
4- the flavour of many cards (text, call back),
5- the Commander extra support,
6- the Pauper extra support.
There's already nearly 30 cards that are gonna see play in Modern, THIRTY. Are those people blind and only see what's good for the only one archetype they play ? Legacy staples and strong role players (Counterspell is one) will not be in MH1. Get. Over. It.
MH1 is not only there to fix the MUs we're not comfortable with, it's not only there to shut Phoenix, Humans or Tron down. It's also there to make a playable limited format, push bad and average decks, cautiously reprint old cards, and (re)test the water of many mechanics. This set is not a BR announcement, this set is not the merger with Legacy.
It's not healthy to read these forums when mindsets are targetted at one specific wish (the BR Announcement is sometimes as painful to read because of that). This set has already me convinced it's going to shift the Modern metagame. What bothers me most is people who complain this is a Commander set, how wrong they are imo.

2. Smiles with stars in the eyes.
3. Checks bears in Magic.
5. Checks all bears, bear tokens and changelings available in Modern.
6. Cries very hard.
May 22, 2019I 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 :Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Snow Temple Garden
Snow Land - Forest

May 22, 2019Nah, 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.Posted in: Control
I'm like SirPsychoMantis, I dropped the thread and deck a while ago, but this set awakens my curiosity for some decks again.
May 22, 2019I 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.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
It makes me want to force 4x Blossoming Defenses, and maybe 2x Spellskite in the maindeck.
May 22, 2019Meh. 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.Posted in: Combo
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.
May 22, 2019It 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 ?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
I don't see any use in Modern.
