Quote from Manite »I like how this Lazav can copy your stuff. Makes him much easier to build around than the original. Now to find a Grixis commander suitable to play Lazav with Grenzo, Dungeon Warden.
Quote from user_938036 »Mad Rush, its iffy on whether this can be red, but the lose clause is way too easy making it far too strong.
I feel this is strong, balanced design. Consider it a Relentless Assault that cantrips but requires you to empty your hand or lose the game.
Sulferize, 3cmc land destruction has been a no go for 10 years now.
It's mostly a proof of concept. Ideally, it would cost 4 and have an additional upside, like allowing you to Memoricide the copies of that card as long as it's not a basic land or something.
Valkyrie's Summons, might be too cheap and the flavor is weird. Not granting flying or changing their types helps a lot.
Probably should cost 1 or so more, when compared to something like Back from the Brink.
Immolation Brand, Spite of Mogis that starts at 1, hits walkers and is instant is way too strong. RR to keep as an instant.
Yeah, possibly should be RR or 1R.
Spellplate Goblin, potentially taking them away isn't an excuse to give non red keywords. Red doesn't get indestructible or hexproof.
I feel like the triggering of the removal – going all in on a turn – fits red so well it merits the piebreak.
Goblin Hoarder, peek at cards stashed??? Why peek? Stash overall seems like a bad keyword. It looks to far too easily let you loop back cards.
Cause they are face-down, otherwise you wouldn't know what's in there.
Tibalt is way too good. I wouldn't be upset to see this exact card at 2RR, not quite happy but not upset. At 3cmc it shouldn't offer a choice on the looting and only add 1 when the devil dies. Would easily be the best red walker.
Probs so, but the fact that the +1 doesn't generate card advantage of any kind makes me believe it might fly.
Quote from seilaoque »actual creation process for this card in R&D....
Designer 1: Hey, remebmer Grim Haruspex?
Designer 2: No, I don't.
Designer 1: It's a cool nice card that impacted no formats whatsoever...
Designer 2: One minute... let me check gatherer... ok, found it, what about it?
Designer 1: I've made it WORSE and printed as rare!
Designer 2: You're the best designer ever!
