    That elf is way more busted than the lame sphinx. One of the most powerful elves I've seen


    Really? I don't think the elf makes the cut in my elf deck. Very little immediate impact for 6 mana.

    Thinking commander, I should have specified, my mistake. Not nearly as good in duels obv.


    Even in commander, I'm not really inclined to play it. The impact is slow. The effect of getting a token each turn is not something new, there's verdant force and dragon broodmother. They really don't see that much play. Even as a very relevant creature type, elf, it's too slow.

    While mirrorpool can be instant speed and can do more, I still wouldn't say strictly worse. What if the user's deck doesn't have any way to produce or has a very unreliable way to be able to produce (C)?

    Rune-scarred is always better than this so-called mythic. Never let your enemies choose for you.


    Yeah, cards like that never see play, *cough* Gifts Ungiven *cough*. You're right punisher effects are typically bad, but I think your thought process is too linear. Rune-Scarred Demon is not always better by a long shot. This is one mana cheaper and in deck that cares for the graveyard it's tutoring 2 cards vs 1 card.



    Indeed. Heck Muldrotha sees this as a cheaper to cast rune scarred while it basically tutors 2 cards for Muldrotha without any problem/"consequences".

    I wouldn't say rune scarred is always better. Having to search for 2 cards, especially if those 2 cards are for setting up something. is quite good. Obviously the card(s) should have some sort of graveyard shenanigans/payoff or something. It might be very specific conditions, but 2 cards is 2 cards (for example, Muldrotha doesn't care where either one goes). Some decks will indeed find better use for it (far better than rune scarred could do on that deck).



    It's better in some decks and "meh" for some. Rune scarred is not always better if you just broaden your perspective.

    Seems oddly restrictive by not just reading, 'Whenever you use a snow mana to cast a creature spell' or whatever the phrasing would be. I don't think that would be too powerful.


    Maybe they don't want it to interact with colorless artifact creatures.

    If I see this correctly, it's not able to copy Legendaries, right?

    I mean, you might get two ETB triggers off one, but then you have to sacrifice one.



    well, it still has its use besides more triggers. if your opponent has a counter, he has to counter both. so having 2 of the same spells on the stack has its advantages.
