    Here is the problem. If you attack with a creature with big attack and lifelink you get the counter after your attack and you have to wait a full turn circle until you can attack with those again.

    The best way to use this is with Trostani like effects. So he does something when you cast him for freaky 6 mana or you have some way to get big life numbers in the same turn. Which can be problematic because those high life number cards cost a ton of mana. If you are able to cheat him to the battlefield and use some of those expensive big life gain cards good for you. If you already have access to 12 mana than great.
    Small life gain cards just works better because they come in form of enchantments and with CC of max 3... sticking around granting you much more life in the end and adding some additional effects (like graveyard hate, control etc). As a cleric he would have been a little better. In my casual edh group he would be to slow in a lifegain deck other than Trostani.
    In addition he needs another card to work. Archangel of Thune has lifelink and doesn't feels so clunky.

    Hey George how expensive should that life gain pay off rare be? George: Yes!

    Well seems like the last mythic is blue. Murkride Regent previewed by Star City Games. A shame white doesn't get a legendary creature.

    Okay we are missing 2 mythics. The red element incarnation is missing. Where does the last one go? I would suggest to one of the mono-color because just having green with 3 seems strange?


    Very likely the last mythic will be a white mythic legendary creature. No mythic white creature all other 4 colors has one.


    Ah right, that would make sense.

    Handy for triggering constellation or other similar triggers like Sigil of the empty throne.

    Edit: Conviction is a little cheaper, tho.

    Is the first creature card that will make it in my angel tribal deck in the set. The other two are too expensive. The new Serra angel card could make it but I need to make a slot and I am not sure if she can compete with the other 7cc+ cards I am running.

    Quote from Sliverologist »
    Well damn, I suppose technically The First Sliver counts as an Azorius Sliver that works by herself, but I was really looking forward to new Slivers.


    Don't think so. The card isn't Azorius. Azorius is used for just White/Blue cards not 5 color.

    I think the leak are fake to be honest. The only point were the leak were correct until now is that Dakkon is a planeswalker and that was discussed in so many forums, sites before.
    The point with the skeleton is very vague. But I would expect some kind of copy token mechanism.

    Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist and all the new equipment creatures are happy. At least they can save the equipment cost.

    Yeah... Could be a theme for White/black removal in the future. We had Avacyn death scene (Anguished Unmaking) and now Radiants.
    I like the alternate art maybe I try to get a version of it.

    So it is Ragavan not Vola. Mark hints

    * a fan favorite animal character finally becomes a legendary creature

    I was close. I might even mentioned him.

    For some reason I thought he had first strike, first.

    ... since when the boros legion uses golems?


    yeah this is a little odd.

    I feel like both effects of Carth could have been white. The only black thing I see is the death trigger of planeswalker. White already tutors for planeswalker so the first part would be in color. Djeru, With Eyes Open could need the support in commander but well this is a modern focused set. I feel like this one is a better super friend option that Djeru what makes me a little sad. Green, Black planeswalker are more powerful in general, too (at least in commander). Maybe an alternative for Atraxa. Missing blue is huge, tho.

    Not much in the way of blue reveals, huh.


    I mean I get the complain. They decide to show us 12 cards. How do they select the cards they want to show us?
    12 cards were shown and 4 of them were mono black or at least relevant for black because lands doesn't have a color technically.

    Grief, Profane Tutor, Unmarked Grave, Cabal Coffers

    I don't have a problem with that. We will see all cards eventually. But Grief and Profane Tutor was shown as example for a upcoming cycle. Why not chose at least one of those in another color like red where we just got to see an uncommon.

    Nonetheless I am excited for the preview next week.
