    And boy, if we get an actual removal spell like a 2cmc, unrestricted Roast . . . watch out.


    The red removal in this set will most likely be the red “force” card like force of negation where it will require pitching a red card. I’m guessing something similar to Pyrokinesis though maybe dealing 5 damage to any target rather than 4 to only creatures.

    Can you post your list idea Mike?

    I see. Yes, I would replace another threat with it so that our instant/sorcery count isn’t affected.

    I can see not being excited to cast it or see it, but there are worse cards to draw late game than a 4 mana 4/4 flyer.

    By the way, I don’t think you’ve thoroughly read the card since it states “If this card is in your opening hand, you may reveal it. If you do, you may Scry 3 at the beginning of your first upkeep”.

    It has nothing to do with Sphinx’s being on the top of our deck.

    I realize that shoaling for 4 cmc is not the ideal scenario, I was just trying to point out that it could have a use other than simply being a 4 cmc creature and/or a free scry mechanic (have to look at all the possibilities, even if they aren’t ideal).

    As for setting up delvers, it could enable a flip on turn 2. If you get to scry 3 on your first upkeep and one of those 3 is an instant/sorcery then you can set that card up in the right spot to flip your delver that you play on turn 1.

    Again, this isn’t something that I am heavily considering, but the thought experiment is interesting in my opinion.

    Has anyone thought about putting Sphinx of Foresight into the deck as a Delver flip enabler on turn 2? Granted, you’d want to run probably 2 colors since you wouldn’t want to fetch on turn 1, but I think it’d be interesting. You would want to play 4 obviously to maximize their utility.

    Played along side looting and disrupting shoal, it would give you the ability to pitch them after they served their use(since a 4 cmc card isn’t great for a delver deck), but they could also be hard cast as a 4 drop that doesn’t utilize the graveyard in slower games.
