    I might actually have to take back my assessment, now that I think about it a bit. If seen as removal, these guys are not great. If seen as aggro unblockable beater that occasionally takes out a bothersome creature, they might actually do some work in the right deck. They can carry some swords, after all. Might have to test them in my Gahiji double-strike deck.


    I like to think of these guys as a 3 damage Prodigal Sorcerer. Lightning Crafter is much worse with that Champion (mostly) drawback.

    I think it's pretty dumb that it untaps other people's forests.

    Damn I thought Hero's Downfall was getting a reprint as well. I was about to ask why the hell they even printed Vraska's Contempt.


    Prints in Masters sets aren't standard legal and AFAIK, this one isn't any different.

    Generally the stuff you tutor for with Eye of Ugin is much more destructive and card-advantagy, but this eldrazi might be far and away the best representation of Lovecraftian horror as far as his ability goes. What is this I can't even!

    Sliver Overlord and Sliver Queen in the command zone both signal to me that I'm up against some kind of five color combo. Tribal decks usually play a pretty fair game. Slivers still intimidate a lot of players. I think its because everyone starts off playing Magic, makes a tribal deck, and runs into a far superior tribe and find the game unfair. Later on they get Post Traumatic Sliver Disorder. Elves annoy people for the same reason. I don't know a lot of people who hate merfolk, or goblins, or zombies nearly as much as slivers or elves.

    In the short term at least, Modern Miracles may prove to be a popular way to reintroduce Jace to the format. So I think Terminus and Entreat may see some movement.

    I love the template design of the planeshifted green cards. The wooden text box is awesome.

    High value? Isn't it like $4?

    I mean, I get budgets but calling $4 "high value" seems excessively budget.



    The invocation is significantly more pricy. Scourge foils even more so.

    Stifle (and similar effects) seem to get the most praise in more competitive contexts where you can blow someone out of their fetchland, but you'd be hard pressed to find an opponent you can't blow out with this card.


    I disagree. Despite activated and triggered abilities being everywhere, there's not a lot of them that you want to counter with a oneshot spell in a multiplayer setting. Stifling a fetchland in the early turns is so much more unnecessary and pointless than destroying a Sol Ring or Mana Crypt, and later on it can really feel like a dead weight card, unless your opponent spent a lot of cards and/or mana on an activated or triggered ability, I'd be tempted to call it very narrow, but maybe worth for a Lord of Tresserhorn deck. More worth it in playgroups that like to storm off, as you can counter the Storm trigger, pretty nice.

    Not Kodama's Reach makes it only an 8/10


    Eh, one day you'll be gotten by Hisoka's Defiance and you'll see the light.

    There might be something you can do with Mirror of Fate, but that's going down some shaky roads.


    But I love Mirror of Fate. It's so underrated, the edhrec page for it is like 50% my zedruu deck.


    I'm surprised that you don't have a Mindslaver in order to donate someone a Mirror of Fate and make them use it to deck themselves.

    Good art, good name, and you know what? It's a pretty good card in a 99-card format. It's just not as good if your deck relies on specific cards to win; if your reason for wheeling is to dig for combo, you probably don't include this. A Leovold deck would have liked this as much as any other wheel, though.

    I'm pretty sure Sharuum works just fine on MTGO. You stack your triggers after the Sculpting hits graveyard; they just wait in limbo on the screen while you choose your legendary to keep.

    711.6. A double-faced permanent always has the status “face up” (see rule 110.6). Double-faced
    permanents can’t be turned face down. If a spell or ability tries to turn a double-faced permanent
    face down, nothing happens.


    So in the case of Manifest, you just plop it onto the battlefield face up...? Bizarre.


    Ixidron is a pretty nice card. There's a lot of ways to deal with a lot of creatures in Blue to be fair, but not many of them can be reused with Crystal Shard.
