    4 Toughness or greater seems more likely to help Humans then it does to hurt. Do they even play creatures above 4 toughness?
    As for Clarion yeah I forsee that slaughtering more Boros Decks then it helps in stadard. The lifelink is unlikely to matter in most cases.

    Now the 3 CMC or less I suppose has some potential but not for 4 mana it doesn't unless you are playing a deck breaking parity and if you are do you really need a boardwipe?

    Some see a cool use of the rules and other (I am in this camp) see a broken rule exploit that should be closed.

    Probably doesn't help that the mechanics of how KCI's particular recursion engine works was confusing to even Pros...that just be my interpretation from watching people play against it.

    Doesn't help Burn Decks have a low mana curve...I mean sheesh if they spend three to cast this what are they even going to do with most cards that turn? Probably not much.

    Fair enough but lol Humans Players are going to need a bigger sideboard at this point. Going to have a 2-3 CMC card to counter every deck at this rate.

    I find it funny how Play Design is pumping out Tron and Walker Hate but I have not seen a brand new board wipe to keep Humans in line. Granted hard to get better then Terminus but still...


    I mentioned it weeks ago, but nobody wanted to listen. We will need anti tribal hate eventually.


    I wish it will probably cost 4 cmc if its 3 it have a garbage downside.

    Oh right its a human...not sure I like it giving your opponent a choice doesn't do it for me and most control decks have well stocked hands.

    It has a better mentor then the actual mechanic.

    Isnt that usually how it goes when something degenerate goes down in Modern? Play White or win faster then they can are generally the options.


    The problem with Humans is more then any other deck type it will always get better as WOTC will always print more Humans that is not even accounting for their love of tribal in general. We are unlikely to ever to go back to the days of bad creatures and great spells with a few broken artifact sets ever so often.

    How what control deck doesn't have cards to toss instead of losing their walker?

    I would disagree Chandra and Nissa are the most killable.

    Gideon has unresolved issue with the Gods and now has a God Killing Weapon.
    Jace still have to go back to Vyrn eventually not pressing sure but its a story thread. And he is the Face of the Franchise.
    Lili....still have the Raven Man unresolved.
    Ajani has issues with the Gods of Theros as well.
    Teferi has Zhalfir and just joined and New Phyrexia since Karn is his friend.

    So with Chandra and Ajani save...the odds of any Gatewatcher dying seem pretty remote to me.

    Vraska or Jaya sure...an actual Gatewatch member unless they bring back Nissa to die I doubt it.

    When you want to push Golgari

    Ridiculous. Not completely terrible card, but compared to some green cards in this set, it looks so underpowered.


    Yeah this compared to Assasin's Trophy is just a slap in the face. For 2 CMC, Golgari can kill anything without hexproof or indestructible and gives your foe a basic land. For 2 CMC, Boros can only kill creatures and not even all of them.

    So Golgari can kill anything for the same CMC...but Boros gets a worst Path to Exile?

    I mean sheesh at least tack on some life gain for the Boros player or an exile. I mean this should kill most things that aren't mana dorks so that is good I guess seems fine for Standard certainly better then their boardwipe.

    Impossible this is not EDH where Cyclonic Rift is god mode. Blue simply lacks the sufficient boardwipes to handle humans.
