Quote from sesstreetsI see the magnet being viable in UW control.
Quote from VaclavAt the moment - no one played a ton of various cards until they became good answers for individual decks, that's the nature of the game - I wasn't claiming either flourished right this minute.
And dropping her to 2 against a RDW style deck is just asking to lose her unless you're presuming you've already got LoSancity already out. (Which is even more presumptuous that assuming your aggro opponent sits on his hands between T4 and T5)
(Not to mention, who the hell would wrath a RDW deck anyhow regularly? 2/3 of their critters suicide themselves before it's even your turn)
Additionally if Elspeth + DoJ becomes too much of a concern for aggro with minimal ramping they can easily drop a Monument and turn DoJ into wasted cardboard and Elspeth close to wasted cardboard status (depending if they've got trample/evasion for how close).
She's good, and it puts you in a good position - but it's hyperbolic and over-the-top to claim she's instant win in that case.
Quote from razefireWhoever said she was good in U/W control, are u serious? Youd like to blow up your own JtMS/Gideon/BSAngel? She's terrible in Control, lol. Thats fine though, aggro decks could use a bit more narrow Planeswalker, and a token aggro deck would be cool for her.
Quote from VaclavYou're disagreeing with me over nothing - I like her a ton, I just think that example the person gave of T4 DoJ, T5 3 tokens as a "automatic win against aggro, really what do they do?" was ridiculous.
Quote from subrosianI honestly believe most of the Mythic blowback is emotional reaction
Quote from bnubbzIf any random noob could obtain all the same awesome cards as the most passionate players then the game would be a mess. The game would be more about luck involved than true passion and skill.
Quote from GedRemember that time in Song of Ice and Fire where there were 5 people left alive and I was so sure there could only be one scum but two people were stupidly scummy and I didn't know what to do so we killed one and it turned out they were both scum and we won anyway?
I remember that time.
Quote from The ChandrianIf you're a moron and path something in the first few turns, then yes, its kind of bad.
If you're not a moron and path only in the mid-to-late game when the mana won't matter much, then it's a very good card.
Quote from KudaToo much arguing over card slots is also a problem here on MTGSalvation. One or two card slots don't change match-up percentages that much, for the most part. Just like the Putrid Leech or Rampant Growth Jund, you're still playing with or against Jund. Ya know? Your strategy isn't much different, if different at all. There also needs to be more emphasis on sideboarding and overall match-up strategy. Instead it's just "you do/don't play card X, so you're bad!"
