    YEah, the art is way too busy for a simple thing like a Sol Ring, but it's good to have another print of this card.

    Yeah, this needed Flash to be sorta playable. As it is, it's too narrow and too slow. Pity, they could have printed another efficient human at Rare in this slot.

    As happy as I am with the card, Kaya as a character seems to be forced almost as if they’re trying to make her a main protagonist post WAR.



    I agree with this. Kaya is reaching former Jace levels here. This card is fantastic, but with the amount of jumping through walls to kill people she does, you'd think they'd have some sorrt of ecto-trap and go back to their poker games. I would have preferred another art direction, as nothing in this card art calls to mind trickery or cleverness, just "stabby time!".

    Always a fun card to have around, even though it's more than fair in the current Modern Meta. Nice art as well, good job here. Smile

    So one thing I've been hearing is these might see play in Bolas's Citadel decks, since they become extra land drops, essentially. Not sure how good this would be in Modern, but kinda glad it isn't in Standard if that's the case.

    Disappointing. This will probably find a niche in Modern at some point, but man. This was their chance to pull a few nice levers for Modern and they have certainly printed some viable cards for the format (Lava Dart, Prohibit, the Bazaar Djinn, Canopy lands) but it really feels like they had overflow Commander product and just used it as filler in this set. It's a pity, really, because they could have used this to print safety valves for items they find problematic as well.

    Kind of disappointing it did not have Flanking, seeng it's a Zhalfirin. This will probably be fine if there's token generation of some sort at instant speed.

    In the right deck it could be up to 'draw six' for 3 mana, which is bonkers. Even if the average is 'draw three', this is already above the line.



    Was just thinking Sasaya with Snow Forests. Just grab 5-6 of those, instant flip and off to the races.

    Unless you can mill their deck in short order, I think Lantern selecting your draws is still better than Altar right? And that deck isn't exactly at the top of the meta at the moment. Altar in Modern seems brave, but not game-breaking. It might inadvertently boost some strats but we can deal with that later, etc.

    Ok, so this set is above average for Modern and simply bonkers for...Commander? How weird is this.

    Sisay looks great in this iteration too, damn.

    Damn that Unicorn is sexaaaaay, I wonder how much it fetches on the High Market? Might call it Balthazar. Smile
    Also, decent enough trigger, will likely get out of hand with proliferate and so on.

    Tinker deck was fun, big Phyrexian Colossus or Processor on turn 1 or so. Smile
    This is a fine callback card, it's fair.

    AUTUMNTWILIGHT is correct. This simply isn't pushed enough, and that's sadly a theme for a lot of cards in this set.
    They should have used this as a chance to break the format, create new archetypes and maybe push some archetypes over the limit, but instead we got..safe.
    Innovative, but safe. And that's really, really sad. Even sadder is that recent standard sets have broken formats more than this will.
    Hopefully some of the upcoming mythics will be more up the power curve. Frown

    Excellent! This little thing will wreck games in limited, and that's without potential blink effects. Glad to see it back.

    Good card and no longer strong enough for tournament play with Snapcaster Mage, Past in Flames et al. existing.
    Maybe some jank build will love it.
