    So your response HERE is addressed to the people of Redddit and the internet as a whole. Gotcha.


    AND here also obviously. Seems you like to read only what is convenient to you.



    so you made a comment that applied to all of ONE person here, I call you on it, then you say it applies to people across the entirety of the internet, I call you on THAT, and then you revert to the fact it applied to all of ONE person here.


    What a clown.


    What you said it's literally all wrong:
    1) It's not only 1 comment since I explained previously that I referred also to the ones that also but not only, in this thread made enthusiastic comments of how "amazing, etc" was the ability, and that already make false your statement
    2) If it's only one, or two, or one million people I'm referring to, here or elsewhere, I fail to see how it's relevant and why you even feel to point that out this like almost you wannna feel to "outsmart" me, but in the end it just reveal a childish behavior in the same line of Nelson of the Simpson doinng "ah-ha." to Bart for whatever foolishness.
    3) Oh, seems you didn't said nothing at the end to Xric, just my comments were not ok for you for whatever reason. We're using double standards I see.
    4) If you wanna see a real clown, buy a mirror. Have a nice day sir.

    Oh please, you are all acting so much worried and this card will go burden in everybody binder which is exactly the same fate that Blade of Selves faced also (because it turn out, guess what, that players actually realize that cards that do literally nothing when against a single opponent are the first ones to not make the cut in a decent EDH deck)



    Exactly one person commented on the power of this card prior to your comment. Who exactly are the “you all”?


    I was also referring to anybody commenting the "strong, amazing, astonishing" effect (not only here but what I've read on Reddit and on the Internet in general) on a card that not only how everybody notice has a low power level (everybody agree 8 mana is too much to be playable, and already doesn't do nothing alone at empty board state), but that it's even flawed in design, because Myriad it's a flawed mechanic (cards should make additional token even in 1vs1, which would obviously imply to change the current costs or effects or even color restrictions of myriad cards to make it balanced). Myriad stapled on a creature or with additional effects at least mitigate the bad design, but having the same problem of Blade of Sleeves just doesnt make it reliable enough (at least for my experience)

    But their data is most trustworthy than yours. EDHREC aggregates from multiple deckbuilding sites, and there is a specific numbers breakdown on every card and commander.


    Maybe I didn't make clear enough the point that for the website itself admission (and that confirm why I don't usually even find this Blade played because it has pretty much the same percentage to appearing of a wild Chansey in a Pokemon game), Blade doesn't find place in more than 1% of decks of that website (that are not the totality of edh decks all around the world anyway). Now compare that percentage against equipments actually used in the format, because of their universal utility regardless of how many players are in the game (like Lighting Greaves at 27%) and you will find out that saying that Blade find home in "almost 9000" decks doesnt mean much in his context and, more importantly, doesn't tell us the effective raw power level in a vacuum (If we should follow the logic that "more decks equation of more powerful" then that would means that Watery Grave is strictly better than Underground Sea just because according to the same EDHrec the first dual see places in 50% of decks while the latter in only the 14%, but we know that this can't be true.)
    Reality is complex and there's many more factors to consider. This is one of those cases. Bad cards will always be played by some people, but that doesn't make them good per se

    Never seen a single Blade in one of this games

    Your personal experiences do not trump actual statistics? Nor does it equate to the card being bad because it's not in enough decks to fit your arbitrary qualifications.


    The pot calling the kettle black. You are functionally illiterate and still think to explain to me how to interpret things. Seems it wasn't enough losing your last ounce of credibility when on the other thread you didn't even understand that my opinions about UB were just the same of MaRo opinions all time along and refused to aknowledge that.

    Lol, what are you talking about? He's given you actual statistics proving that blade of selves is played by thousands of people. Your personal experience with 'dozens' of games without seeing the card is irrelevant.


    I did an edit after that which is super relevant and explains also that numbers are nothing without their context and when compared to actual staples played and seen in game (in fact, as I said, he omited to say that his "data" is still an irrelevant percentage of 1% , which is really low and basically even confirm my experience)

    Blade of Selves, the $30 card in nearly 9,000 decks on EDHREC? Such a burden in every binder...
    Honestly, this card won't see as much play as that. I like Myriad. But they overcosted this one.



    With how much players you play every day? I play every day on cockatrice with dozens of EDH players all around the world with all sort of power levels and metagames for over a decade. Never seen a single Blade in one of this games since the day Blade was printed (and not to mention LGS and kitchen table groups). Regardless of what EDHrec says, it's still true that this card does nothing when you're against 1 player and no good EDH player gonna run a 8 mana card that could even not work in late game or not work at all (so, if anything, EDHrec just proves that many EDH players just runs and makes financial speculations over a bad designed card).

    EDIT: also, even using your parameter, for the website itself admission (and that you purposely omitted to say), all the decks you listed are still just the 1% of decks of that website (not even of all the world, just of that website data), which is not impressive like, at all, and fully explains why I don't even see normally that card in my games lol
    And if Blade was already at a ridicolous 1%, this will be for sure at like the 0,00something%

    I do think this ability is slightly more powerful than people are saying, if only for the fact that Blue and Green are very, very good at untapping creatures multiple times in a turn, or across multiple turns. And that fact alone makes it interesting in a way that differs from suspend.


    We are all saying that his last line of text could perfectly coexist with Suspend instead of the current super nerfed wording. Sure, untap effects makes him stronger, but it's still spending more cards just to make his ability viable, while Jhoira of the Ghitu would just cast Blighsteel Colossus and Worldfire spells all day without any other on-board support.

    This card could had been remotely interesting if it was a commander, so you could build around your deck with all those group-hug ramps a la Collective Voyage, creating a new archetype even. Without being in the command zone available, isn't even worth build in the slot. There are too many cards that already fetches fatties from deck to field in far more efficent ways than waiting an opponent to have 8 lands, even in normal EDH. Nobody will play this, and the few that will, will be also very disappointed to do so 99 times to 100.

    I hate cards that are completely useless in a 1vs1 environment, but that's not a problem of the card, but how Myriad was designed as mechanic. I'm paying 8 mana, you better be useful until the end of the game or even if I dont find a multiplayer group.

    That said you can remove time counters off other cards you suspend normally so that is actually a very interesting use case for this card.


    Yes, but this would still be true if the first part of the card would use the actual Suspend keyword instead of this crap. It's not that it's useless, it's just unnecessary nerfing in a world where Jhoira of the Ghitu is legal.

    His face is exactly my reaction at his card effect (and agree that this ability is crap when compared to actual suspend).

    Yes, it is you, you quite literally said it's others not understanding and that you do.


    If you don’t like the direction of the Magic brand, I would argue you don’t understand what the Magic brand has been since its creation. It was introduced as the game that breaks its own rules, and that’s been true from day one, both mechanically and creatively.

    Those are MaRo words. Not mine. About UB exactly. About exactly what are YOU complaining.
    And now, if you're done to ridicule yourself I have better things to do than wasting my time with functional illiterates that confirm in every single post they do (even in this quote) that they don't even understand what they are reading.
    Good luck with your future Magic fruition, mine will be wonderful for sure, also thanks to UB project Smile
