    Love this card. I've definitely seen it grow into a monster when the opposing player didn't have an answer.

    Often it ends up as a great value card for any green-based aggro/midrange deck. It is the best nonland card in that tricolor.

    I haven't seen anybody mention this combo, but this is my new favorite Channel payoff.


    Interesting. All you need is GGG and you can get a ton of dudes. Haven't run Channel in a long time but this card is definitely a point in its favor.

    Honestly, I don't think this looks great, but Agadeem's Awakening has been so disappointing that I'd be happy to try this out as another aggro beater and token-producer in black instead. Just the possibility of being a decent aggro threat, a midrange token producer, and a possible UB control payoff excites me enough that I think this is worth the test. Black 3s are good but they certainly aren't stacked enough not to test this


    This is the exact swap I made. I've only seen the Witch in one match and it's done more than Awakening did in months.

    I feel sorry for the people who like to jam artifact.dec, as this is going in my cube and I'm not apologizing.


    I was thinking the same thing, but then again, I think there should be some price to pay for playing with moxen.


    This is one of the reasons I added Nature's Claim to my 540. I thought the lifegain made it unplayable but having a 1 mana instant speed answer as a naturalize with virtually zero downside has been worth it. I'm glad to have the Claim alongside this new card.

    New card can really blow out the artifact heavy decks but by the time it gets online for a ton of destruction it will be late game.

    It is a great feeling to add a powerful Naturalize effect without having to cut a subpar one. Get into my 540!

    I will test this over Leonin Warleader. I wish it was a 3/4 but I like being able to get more tokens is nice. It could even work in an Aristocrats deck. Curious to see this in action.

    Anything with haste in Red grabs my attention as they accelerate the clock for aggressive decks. This one is definitely lives up to that hype and gives potential card advantage!

    Definitely slotting this in for Hanweir Garrison in my cube.


    This card is the real deal and likely will be the top Cube card in this set. I also swapped it for the Garrison and I'm thrilled so far.

    Did some playtesting last night with a few cards including Laelia. Opponent attacked with it and a Robber of the Rich so he was drawing cards as the red deck which was pretty awesome. It just hits so hard and quickly grows to be huge.

    Laelia seems like it may competing to be the best red 3 drop in the Cube. Bold statement I know but I think it is definitely in the conversation.

    I was really impressed.

    3/3 haste for 3 that only gets bigger and can give you card advantage?

    Replacing Hanweir Garrison in my 540. I love cards that give you immediate value in a red deck.

    Idol hasn't been played a ton in my 540 so going to give this a spin in its place. I like the 3 bodies left behind better than 1.

    Curious as to why Abundant Harvest & Leonin Lightscribe don't crack your top 20? Thanks for the article as always!

    This is what I am thinking for my 540 Powered:

    Elite Spellbinder for Gideon of the Trials

    Abundant Harvest for Once Upon A Time

    Sinister Dominance for Snuff Out

    Rip Apart for Boros Charm

    Leonin Lightscribe for Remorseful Cleric

    Vanishing Verse for Anguished Unmaking

    Sedgemoor Witch for Agadeem's Awakening

    Primsari Command for Izzet Charm

    There was no thread for Leonin Lightscribe. Am I the only person who's intrigued by it?

    To me it reads that they will draw regardless but I am not certain.

    For me that 1 mana makes a huge difference. Especially since I am powered and this being able to kill a 4 mana walker or stud creature when on the draw turn 2 is huge.

    I really think this will be the best non Vindicate BW option for my Cube. I'll be curious if not hitting artifacts and guild cards will be enough to hold it back.

    I like Anguished Unmaking but being able to curve out with 2 drop removal spell into 3 drop creature is very exciting to me.

    This card misses 86ish nonland permanent cards in my 540. This hits around 75% of all nonland permanents in my Cube.

    I feel like this is a must play in my Cube for 2 mana at instant speed.

    Vindicate, Lingering Souls, Sorin LOI and Lurrus will be my BW section along with this card. Cutting Anguished Unmaking for this. Unsure if that's right but there are so many 3 mana O Ring style effects that I feel like this card is more needed.
