    For anyone discovering or rediscovering Richard Kane Ferguson via this kickass version of the ole Blackblade, may I present my favorite piece of Magic art. It's got fire, a bad ass dude with a searing spear cutting another dude's arm off, and a HORSE PUNCHING A GUY IN THE FACE!

    Behold, the glory of Searing Spear Askari.

    Holy *****! I'm almost tempted to call it fake, because it beats the living hell out of Jace's spellbook. I also find it weird that they kept the original art for Gideon Jura since he was retconned to a Greek beefcake.

    EDIT! RICHARD KANE FERGUSON!!!!!!! WotC needs to have him illustrate a ton more cards. Like, right now. Call him, Wizards. Call him.

    These 4 cards tell a better story than anything we've been subjected to over the last 4 years.

    Truth! So many rambling, poorly written stories with the subtlety of a blow to the head, then a handful of cards come along with more resonance than any of them combined. Good stuff. The pegasus...the feels...the freshly pealed onions in the room...

    Did anyone mention Mikaeus, the Unhallowed yet? Giving your team undying seems good, not to mention the sweet combo with the previously mentioned Cauldron of Souls. Also, if we're looking for an aristocrats approach, Falkenrath Noble should also be included.

    If we're playing a bunch of creatures with ETB and death triggers, Rescue from the Underworld seems fun. Also, stuff like Oversold Cemetery and Palace Siege to keep getting your creatures back in this constant chain o' death. Also, Diabolic Intent.

    It seems like your problems run deeper than MTG. Deck power doesn't even scratch the surface. We're only hearing your side of the story, but based on that he appears to be a poor winner and loser. If this friendship means something to you, I would tell him how his aggression makes you feel, and that it's unhealthy for both of you. Maybe something else is happening in his life that is causing him to misdirect his hostility to you. An honest, private conversation seems to be in order, and it should happen on its own, and not after a triggering event.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    It actually reminds me of the opening scene of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, when the buildings were fighting each other like naval combat, file cabinet cannons and all.

    Hey just was wondering, is this an out of season April Fool's joke?
    As someone who has 6 years and thousands of dollars invested in Commander, I can assure you that I'm not joking in the slightest when I say that this card is absolute trash in commander
    It is a good thing you called this out. I was ready to just ignore your comments because I didn't think you spent nearly enough on Magic to have any idea of what is good, but now that I know you spend "thousands" I know you are an authority on all things EDH /s

    How much you spend on this game is a ridiculous metric upon which to claim authority or knowledge of the format.

    This card doesn't have to be great. This card doesn't have to be an efficient use of mana. This card doesn't have to win games on its own. Vorthoses like cards that deal with the story. Johnnys like trying to make things work. Timmys like big splashy spells. It doesn't really matter why someone would want to play this card. It has its uses and it has its audience. It may not be ideal for a number of reasons but outright claiming it is trash in one of the formats that cares the least about overall efficiency and instead cares more about being able to make things work or building fun, out of the box decks over solely winning seems like you don't know as much about EDH as you claim to. Everyone plays for a different reason and you not liking the card doesn't make it unplayable for others.

    I understand where others may like this card and, when this thing really gets going in a game, I can see where it can be a force to be reckoned with. It does seem like an exciting card and can appeal to a number of different types of players and there are likely a number of decks it can fit into as a curve topper.

    qft. I'm always down to see displays of hubris being rightfully called out.

    As a person who plays EDH and enjoys face-beating angel factories, I approve of this card.

    Though I really don't want another return trip after spending a year in Ravnica, there are a lot of clues that lead me to believe that we're going back to Theros in October. Feather is obscenely good in a heroic deck, not to mention Tenth District Legionnaire and Defiant Strike. Perhaps, after the defeat of Bolas, we're gonna to rescue Elspeth from Theros's underworld.

    I mean...is it better than serra angel? First strike is pretty meaningless on a mid-sized flyer, and +1/+1 is comparable to lifelink on a flyer of this size...If they were the same cost I'd rather have this, but for a full mana more? Pretty sure Serra angel is significantly better.

    Vigilance significantly changes the calculus on the utility of first strike, I think. Not only that, but this card also has a very splashable mana cost. I think it'll slay in limited.

    Duel is too close to fight. Way too close. They also don't use stalking often enough to keyword it in the first place.
