    The problem with Seasoned Pyromancer is you need to discard non-land cards to gain the value. Spell's matters decks want to discard their excess lands to draw into additional cantrips/ burn


    You are thinking about the card in a very 1 dimensional manner. Discarding spare lands to draw spells is still value, even if you don't get the tokens.

    @g_kourk: It's all in the OP!

    @JuiceBOX: T4 Progenitus/Blightsteel/Emrakul has been pretty powerful. The archetype hasn't been "marginal" or "weird" ...it's been very strong. Just an FYI.


    I said marginal cards, not a marginal archetype. Any deck that can circumvent the cost of casting end-game creatures is going to be powerful when it comes together. The question is, when it does not come together - "Are the peripherals good enough for supporting other archetypes?", and I don't think that rings true enough for me to be willing to give up the real estate space for the archetype, even at 540.

    Saying Uro should be banned and Splinter Twin unbanned is the funniest ***** I have ever heard.

    posted a message on Set (P)review - My top 20 Magic 2021 (M21) cards for the cube!
    I think cards like Baneslayer Angel and Elder Garganoth are fine for 540 and up. Primarily because premier removal starts to become more limited in most cubes for a few reasons. Creatures tend to scale in inclusion count as the cube size grows, at a greater rate than removal. Premier removal tends to be more spread out the larger the draft group. Ultimately you get more opportunities to get away with sticking either of these big dummies and because of that, their value goes up.

    DTR in Cube environments is a fine argument, but the applications of it are much more finite because of the nature of Cube vs traditional limited formats.

    I think the long and short of it is that these are all effects that certain decks want more of in most Cubes and it is all packed into a single card in a prominent color. Are all modes relevant for all decks? Of course not, but they are all good enough to cherry pick from to fit your needs and help flesh out various different decks a bit more.

    In a vacuum, the card is good value, sure. However, relative to the power level at 6 mana within Cube, I do not think it really competes with a lot of common inclusions and therein lies it's glaring faults.

    I am slam dunking this into 360. I just added Rielle, the Everwise and loving it and I think this deck adds some sweet interactions there but also strong applications in general.

    Not the most powerful card, but I feel like it is better than a lot of other Planeswalkers in blue.

    That looks absolutely heinous.
