    Here is a card that makes creature leave the graveyard:
    Macabre Hatchery. It's a 5 mana card that nets you 3 cards worth 6 mana. With Tomb in play you also got 3 tokens.


    Gruesome Menagerie returns the creatures at the same time, so it will only trigger Desecrated Tomb once. You will only get 1 bat token out of it.

    I don't think Cabal Stronghold is good in this deck with only 14 Swamps. Often times it's just going to be a colorless land. You'd probably be better off using Field of Ruin in place of those.

  • posted a message on Peeps who sleeve, do you double sleeve or single?
    I only play with foils so I double sleeve everything. It helps keep my foils from bending in humid air. I use KMC Perfect fits with the card loaded from the bottom in KMC hyper matte black loaded from the top. It creates a nice seal on my cards. Also, once the extra air comes out they won't slip or slide or anything. They feel great. I also never unsleeve anything. I just but more sleeves. Always perfect for and always KMC hyper matte black. Then I never have to resleeve or desleeve, and making decks is super fast. I usually play a new deck every week, though, so speed is important to me.

    If only Fraying Sanity weren't rotating out of Standard. There isn't enough mill to make that type of deck viable post-rotation.


    That's ALWAYS the problem with mill. They make 1 or 2 solid mill cards every set, but there are never enough solid mill cards Standard legal at the same time.

    I wish we'd get more Kraul. Has WotC ever said why they just dot them in sets? I'd love to play a Kraul tribal deck!

    Am I the only one who would rather see "totenwelt" as the mechanic name rather than "undergrowth"?

    I am german & Totenwelt by definition would be an epic for a keyword


    Isn't it roughly 'dead world'?

    Im going to say it. The card is bad.

    Its slow, its costly, you have to jump through hoops to really make it be anything more than delayed and fragile removal.

    You'll never be able to get someone to lose on its conditions. As a commander its tax and slowness make it impractical to swing with repeatedly. In standard its slow and crap without running several in the deck. Its unplayable anywhere but the kitchen table. Even there itll be a card someone loves and tries to make work every single time, but never admits it doesnt.

    A+ disappointment.


    Let's call the ability a 'mercy rule'. You might not work with the three hits often, but it's inevitability. She's got a healthy backend for blocking, can get in some damage, and is evasive. She's fine.

    Sorry for double post... Cannot delete.

    Already working on it. First card I thought of: Release to the Wind.

    I would love to see Garruk storm onto the plane, and still in turmoil, just goes Incredible Sulk (not a typo) on the place. Incidentally helping, since Liliana might be Bolas-aligned. GARRUK-SMASH!

    Source unclear, no image, seen on reddit, they've got the information from this Japanese page: https://www.fgrecservices.com/tag/漂流自我/

    roughly translated
    Unmoored Ego 1UB
    (probably:) Sorcery (probaby:) {R}

    Choose a card name. Search target opponent’s graveyard, hand, and library for up to four cards with that name and exile them. That player shuffles their library, then draws a card for each card exiled from hand this way.


    The card is now on the visual spoiler on the mothership. It's name is Unmoored Ego.

    Looks disappointing enough to be real. Cranial Extraction abilities just seem to never really evolve beyond the core use (and the card draw for the opp is just bad).

    Did Lost Legacy even see play in Standard? Do they need an effect like this always in standard?


    Lost Legacy was a key sideboard card against Approach decks in Standard. You absolutely needed that card if you were creature based and ran black when Approach decks were heavy in the meta.

    I saw some decks side it in against Heart of Kiran too, but it wasn't really effective.
    .

    Of course it wasn't effective versus Heart of Kiran, as Lost Legacy can't name artifacts.

    That said, this card will be useful and welcome in Standard. I played B/x every since I came back to MtG last year, and whether playing MBC, MB Midrange, BG Reanimator,et al, I always played a copy or two of legacy in the sideboard. My most recent deck played one maindeck. Resolved one a few weeks ago against a tapped out U/W player with three Teferi in his hand and he drew three cards. Didn't matter though, that was the game.


    My bad, forgot it didn't target artifacts. I'm thinking of something else....


    Probably Dispossess which let black handle artifacts. I used that as well.

    Can't wait for a Dimir mirror match where one person surveils too much only to get decked out by the Specter.


    Hopefully, they didn't mill all their Enhanced Surveillance. Wink

    wouldnt be surprised if this card sees zero constructed play. @emeticLunch pointed it out, but nightveil specter wasnt a card until the devotion mechanic was relevant. the gonti comparison isnt very applicable either.


    There are notable differences, however, that make this much better than Nightveil Specter in a lot of ways. If they kill Nightveil Specter, you can no longer cast that card. With this new card you can, just like Gonti. Secondly, with Nightveil Specter you need to have their colors of mana. With this new card you don't, just like Gonti. When the trigger occurs with Nightveil Specter, you get whatever the top card of their library is. With this new card you get card selection, just like Gonti.

    In fact, this card is cheaper than Gonti, has a repeatable effect, and has evasion. Also, a 2/2 Flyer for 3 is much better in constructed than a 2/3 for 4. The big advantage Gonti has is that its an ETB, but otherwise this card is better in almost all ways. Granted Gonti has deathtouch, but asides from that. So I'm not sure why you say that the Gonti comparison isn't applicable. It's a very similar card, in fact much more closely similar to Gonti, Lord of Luxury than it is to Nightveil Specter.

    Surveillance Specter maybe? Nightwatch Specter?

    Anyways, I love this card. Love Specters Love Gonti
