Quote from IMorphling89 »The absolute floor of bouncing a thing and drawing a card for 3 Mana is not bad
Quote from IMorphling89 »I think Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are better than this card because
1) They provide awesome mana fixing, which this doesn't do
2) They thin your deck of two lands, which is great for future draws.
This card's ok, but I'm not really interested in playing it.

Quote from JuiceBOX »I would usually agree, but a form of built in protection kind of melts that argument for me. I like that I can play him on the top end of a deck and to remove him still achieves my aggressive objective and if he sticks around it is going to close the game. I don't think it is as good as Thundermaw Hellkite but I do think that it is better than Glorybringer.

Out of curiosity, what makes you rank Skyfisher so low?

Quote from wtwlf123 »It's not. A lot of the test drafting was done on CubeCobra, which only supports regular drafts. All of the companions were easily built around if drafted early. Some are harder than others, but they're all very doable, and they're all very good.
Quote from opterown »I don't know about you but the decks I build on CubeCobra tend to be far better than the decks I get in paper draft - I suspect bot and human drafting patterns are different enough that it's not really representative.
Quote from wtwlf123 »They're all disgusting. Playing Magic with 8 cards >>>>>>>>> whatever you have to give up to satisfy their deckbuilding restrictions. All 10 were in my cube, and now I'm playing none of them. They pushed me into making a decision I've been on the fence about for a while, which is banning cards that reference the "outside the game" zone. One quick design restriction later, and I have a nice safe haven where I can avoid running into companions. As a mechanic, it has single-handedly made me lose interest in non-Cube Magic (outside of formats like 93/94 and middle school of course, where we can still play regular 7-card Magic).
