Quote from the nobodys »I have a feeling that 4 Emry, Lurker of the Loch will be what ends up being correct, and that maybe some number of Jeskai Ascendancy get included in lists because of its potential being an insta-win with Emry and a mishra's bauble. At least, that's certainly what I'll be trying out as soon as I can get the cards on MTGO.
Just a refresher, with Emry and a bauble in play or the graveyard, and an ascendancy on board, you can cast bauble over and over, make emry lethal and swing. Or you can loot enough to put 2 opals in the graveyard, get infinite mana, and cast something from your deck that can close out the game. The cost of a few ascendancies in lists seems pretty low.
Quote from Melkor »Robin Hood is bad because he has to attack? He doesn't even have to connect to get you the card, just attack. how many red creatures don't have to connect to get value in Modern? I think Eidolon may be the only one. I hope everyone agrees with you and the other people not respecting this card so I can get it cheap, but I don't see any way this isn't the star of the set by the time it rotates from Standard
Quote from Arkaedrian »Seems there's a major disconnect between this Forum and MTG Goldfish. Everyone here seems to be on Devoted Stoneblade lately, whereas on MTGgoldfish with lists putting up real results, it seems people aren't even touching Stoneforge mystic. What's up with that?
If we go by MTGgoldfish numbers, the old school version of this deck with Coco and Chord is about tied with the newer all-in version with Evolution and Lunge.
Quote from Courier7 »Well, that's a thing. It also increases the utility of Reave Soul. Did Kenrith choose this or was it done to him? I highly doubt he chose it, unless he read up on the mystical qualities of the Elk as described in First Nations lore.
