    You people act like vampires aren't still the worst dedicated tribe by the very fact that they're not in UG. A vampire deck will never even have a chance to beat well-built Elves, Merfolk, Zombies or Goblins without Edgar's eminence. And tribal decks are the lowest tier of competition. The card/deck doesn't do a thing to stax, combo or taking turns strategies.

    I would like to encourage you to watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYvsM5HrCSc&t.


    I would agree that vampires are ONE of the worst tribes (ever heard of werewolves and angels?) but Edgar Markov makes vampires broken.

    From my experiences Edgar Markov makes vampires average. Hell, it's not even the best Commander deck to come out of that year.
    Blue gets to be broken beyond any semblance of fairness with ONE CARD combos. But Mardu being playable? That's a sin.

    Difference being that a normal Mardu deck can do fine. I have a Tariel EDH deck that does great as I play it as control and bring back their creatures. Edgar is tribal and he doesn't make vampires OP, he just makes them viable.

    I'm pretty sure Battlebond is replacing conspiracy for this year atleast. I could be wrong though.

    Yeah, most likely, but I'm only hoping for no Masters for at least a year. Conspiracy or Battlebond, whatever as long as I don't have to pay $10 per pack.

    Here's to hoping more info for this year's Commander decks than nothing and that we DON'T hear about the next three Masters sets. If we're lucky we won't get any Masters sets for a year and can get another Conspiracy or something. I know I shouldn't assume, but I think most players are tired of Masters sets at the moment.

    I'm sure we'll get the names of the next 3-8 sets/products, some images, and maybe only a card or two. Gotta keep expectations down, although Wizards has been hitting out of the park a bit lately between Unstable, Challenger Decks, and Dominaria. Hopefully they can keep that momentum going.

    Real talk, I want Prophet of Kruphix unbanned. It's definitely powerful, but there are plenty of other ridiculous things of similar power that are still legal. I don't know if this is an unpopular viewpoint or not.

    The real issue with that card is if multiple people have it it's like sitting through even more turns to get to yours. Even in three players games when two have it the other person sits there and wonders as the other two players having another two turns each to themselves to play things.

    It's just annoying, really.

    I have to say this is a beautifully designed set and it is so much more nostalgic or even iconic than the Masters 25 set which looked like it was thrown together haphazardly by a bunch of drunken employees.

    Couldn't agree more. This set is the first time I've been excited about a set in some time. Between the Challenge Decks and Dominaria perhaps WotC is starting to show some promise. Last time a set was anywhere close to decent like this was Conspiracy 2.

    Oh yeah, this is just going to be silly. Sylvan Advocate, Embodiment of Insight, Earth Surge, etc.

    You just found SaffronOlive's next video when Dominaria comes out.

    Surveyor is just a flightless Pilgrim's Eye with one more toughness.

    Having a mana dork to help with kicker is great, but it would have been nice if it worked with all additional casting costs like Entwine and others.

    This makes Omnath, Locus of Rage very happy. I wouldn't be surprised to see this walking around in Standard, doubtful it shows up in Modern.

    Well that niche mono blue flyers deck in Modern has a new toy. This can certainly be a strong beat, especially with Favorable Winds around right now in Standard.

    Feels like this could have been 4 mana. Other than that it does an interesting thing that some EDH decks might want.

    Baral already lets you approximate Counterspell via Cancel...except...no one is doing that, even in the usual x/blue decks. *shrug*
    There's a big difference between requiring any wizard VS one specific wizard though. I think we'll see quite a few approximated Counterspells in the upcoming Standard.

    I'd like to think in Modern as well. Snapcaster Mage is already played rather frequently and I'm sure there are other Wizards I'm not remembering at the moment. Wizard Bolt might get played as well if enough Wizards are played in red, at least past Grim Lavamancer.

    The fact this is uncommon is insane, the kind of insanity that is great for players.

    I definitely didn't expect a counterspell like this. This is some good stuff.
