Quote from MinaHarcourt »Quote from user_938036 »So you go back two years ago to find a legend that cares about sacrifice when you could go back one year and find two that don't. You look at the last set to find a that drains life, when again you could have gone to last year and found one that was all about reanimation.Quote from MinaHarcourt »The Kraul bugdude from C16 comes to mind. He is, yet again, something with sacrifice.
Or Kambal. Yet again WB has something to do with lifegain/lifeloss. They really need to shake things up.
It's getting annoying.
So it seems exactly like I said, the problem isn't the color pie or even its execution. The problem is on your end, you look at the most 'popular' focus of a color or color pair and declare the color pie as too restricting regardless of how many other representations are available.
Those are two legends I had lying in front of me. That doesn't mean I can't find more.
New ground desperately needs to be broken.
We just got Gitrog Monster. An interesting blend of Lands and Grave effects.
Ikra Shidiqi focuses on Toughness with no sacrifice mechanics.
Pharika and Reyhan both broke new ground as well.
We got Daxos, an Enchantment-focused Legendary.
