    Is that Heimdall from the Thor movies?

    You want to play a 3/2 reach for 2? I dont see that as a good play in constructed.

    In limited it can be useful. In any constructed format, this will never be a mainboard card and if its SB'd in, its in order to kill a flier that you cant handle...which will also kill it. So its a sorcery speed plummet. bad in every application except limited where it has two targets in the set so far to kill without dying.

    Plummet is an instant...hits any size flier.
    Harpooner isn't going to be in the main of any deck outside of limited. So it comes in to kill a big flier that will also kill it. So its a sorcery speed plummet. In any constructed format, plummet is better. I'll concede that this is better in a limited format because people will be playing 1 power fliers.

    The harpooner will never survive killing the flier unless its a 1/1. So there isn't a 3/2 body left behind. It is just a bad plummet.

    I dont see her making the cut at 4cmc when comparing the other choices. The walkers are bad in this set so far

    I don't believe she is playable in Standard or Modern. Pretty underwhelming for a 4 drop. Most likely does nothing turn 4 and hopefully turn 5 didn't out pace its mana cost restriction. I'd definitely be happy if my opponent wasted their turn casting this on turn 4.

    Seems like a Brawl/CMDR card imo.

    I kinda wanted this to be good the first few times I've read it but that 5 mana seems so so slow for the decks it could work in. Someone earlier said it competes with a walker spot and i agree. It just doesn't make the cut yet. (unless something gets printed that it fits with)

    They upshift them so you dont have extra's floating around in an uncommon spot. 1 isn't good but imagine 5-6 of these in a draft.

    But i agree, its terrible as a rare and definitely doesn't draw me in to buy packs.

    I think this card is absolutely terrible.
    It is a 2/2 that dies to everything and leaves a 1/1 that will have no impact whatsoever. The convoke synergy isn't that great and its legendary. This is an absolute dead card after turn 2 and basically worthless t2 anyways. No vehicles worth playing will still be in (at least none as of yet). They would need to make something spectacualr for her to convoke for 2 if she is to be worth anything more than a junk rare.

    Like Buzz said...at 4+ mana cost...the card needs to impact the board instantly or atleast gaurentee some sort of value. The temptation to drop an 8/8 trample is there but it will eat a removal for sure and you'll be out a turn. Check out this forum page under established decks.

    this pretty much deals with diff variants of your deck. G/W can def be done on a budget. Just built GW angels for my kid lol

    Hoser, i'd run the black two drop that draws a card for 1 life over the seeker squire.
    Also, 4x aether hub in the main instead of 4x evolving wilds as well as aethersphere harvester in the main.

    Prolly should main vraska instead of the 5 mana ajani too. More board impactful

    +2 cast out
    +1 vraska
    +4 aether hub
    +2 aethersphere harvester
    -4 evolving wilds
    -1 ajani Unweilding
    -1x hour of glory
    -1 cast down (this doesn't hit anything you can't already hit with seal away (since youre also running cast out/push) i got into a big discussion about how seal away is BAD if you are running push also. It hits nothing of merit that isn't already dealt with in push/cast out

    this is what i'd start with. I think the two 2 mana guys are bad too. the seeker and the 1/3 land guy. I'd replace both of those. 3x gearhulk and 1x lyra seems better too or 2 and 2

    I see no reason to run Metallic mimic in this build. It is plenty lord-heavy enough as it is. I'd rather have a guy that is pumped than a guy that gets mushed by GCW.

    I'm gonna finish this deck for my son today, anyones input on the mono-B vs the B/W version? Are the interactions about the same? Threat-density?

    I ran the aethergeode miner in my SB for a long time. He definitely blanks removal and makes blocking a pita. I'm still a fan if you are running into a lot of U/B or mono-B
