    Martyr’s Soul 2W
    Convoke
    When Martyr’s Soul enters the battlefield, if you control no TAPPED lands put 2 +1/+1 counters on it.
    3/2

    Ok, so let me get this straight. This creature has a floor of being a 5/4 without drawback for 3 mana. It can be cast on turn 2 if you have a one drop that you use for convoke. Or just for free if you have a few soldier tokens. WHAAAAT. I’m usually overly optimistic during spoiler season but this seems pretty insane to me.

    Quote from Taleran »
    I understand why it is there but I feel the Partner Planseswalkers getting 2 of the spells seems a tad on the overpowered side.


    6 mana is a lot in Oathbreaker, especially in colors that have to rely on artifacts or rituals to ramp. In my experience with Oathbreaker the Kenrith Twins are actually pretty low tier. YMMV.

    @Ryansaxe, I've been wondering the same thing and I wonder if this Teferi is worth a closer look. We don't have the best track record here of evaluating Teferi planeswalkers :p Hero of Dominaria went largely under the radar at first and now he's pretty much staple.

    It’s different than commander in a big way actually, but better is entirely subjective. Games are much faster and aggro/burn is a force to be reckoned with. With the combination of a PW and a Spell in the zone you can also build around very focused game plans and build super consistent decks, much more so then EDH. It’s a 6-8 turn format vs a 8-12 turn format like EDH. I’ve had a total blast with it so far and I hope the format continues to grow. It’s a nice alternative way to play multiplayer when you don’t have time to sit down for a 90+ min EDH game. Just my thoughts.

    So we'll get a few cards on Sunday and then weekday previews start on the 20th. Makes sense to me. Woohoo!

    FWIW, it's not as broken as it seems. Sure, you can combo out of your command zone or run Demonic Tutor as your signature spell, but I think people are missing the fact that you have 20 life in a 4 player game. People don't like losing to combo and if that is your game plan it's telegraphed from the time you sit down and start shuffling. Well built Oathbreaker decks are much more low to the ground than EDH decks and if you start the game in an archenemy position chances are you are dead by turn 5 to combat damage. That's been my experience at least. Is the format broken? Sure. So is commander, yet it is either the most popular, or second most popular way to play magic, period. The vast majority of playgroups don't play cEDH because they don't find it fun, and the same will likely be true for Oathbreaker. Games are shorter because decks are more consistent. Thats a good thing for many playgroups. In my experience the avg game of Oathbreaker is 30-50 minutes and is usually pretty swingy and fun. It feels more like multiplayer modern than commander.

    I was super skeptical before I tried the format but I've been pleasantly surprised and I wouldn't be surprised if the format takes off. If you don't want to try it nobody is forcing you to, but to call the format solved or broken without having played a game is flat out wrong.

    I'd be way more interested in this if it didn't ping the user for 1 each upkeep. That's a big deal, especially because you want this to come down early. Bitterblossom gets out of hand pretty quick because it makes multiple bodies that are evasive so the damage you can deal with the tokens scales quickly. The army token Dreadhorde Invasion creates is an infinitely chumpable single creature that hurts you every upkeep. Blegh.

    FWIW, I am slamming a copy of this in my zombie aristocrats EDH deck. I like the card, just not for cube.

    Thanks for sharing this, it was a great read. You've given me a lot of food for thought as some of the cards you really seemed to like are cards I was initially interested in, but decided against (namely Commence the Endgame and Dreadhorde Invasion).

    The same thing happened to black 3 drops, maybe just to a lesser extent. I think this would have easily cracked my cube back when Vampire Nighthawk and Hypnotic Specter were the best options and many of us ran Dauthi Marauder.
