    I hate this kind of "pushed" cards.

    4 toughness for the sole reason to have 4 toughness to survive key removal spells is so terrible in your face "designed" that it hurts.

    ----

    Beside that, its pretty much junk and crap cards.

    The planeswalker is especially disappointing, the version in the precon is overall a better fit for the set and even STRONGER in lots of cases.

    The converted maancost 3 or less part is unnecessary and makes the card worse for simply no reason, other than making this card a lot more terrible than it needs to be (and the ultimate is boring too, for the reason that its overkill, as you win with the +1 effect anyway, if you can use that 4+ times in a row you really do not need the ultimate anyway).




    Pretty sure you aren't reading the card correctly. The 3cmc part makes this card better than it normally would be. Not sure why you'd think otherwise

    Forget drafting, it makes her unplayable almost everywhere. Use her as an un-commander with only one Killbot in your 99? Or 4 of your 60 in casual constructed? Sure, there are Changelings, but that's such a lame, theme-breaking solution. I was really excited to build around Mary as a commander, and now there's almost no appeal. It's a total bummer.

    You mean ten killbots in your 99. There are nine changelings in Mary's colors. I can't speak for self-inflicted deckbuilding restrictions, though.

    Get over it. Wizards isn't obligated to print everything you want to build decks exactly the way you want.


    The issue is that the changelings in her colors are horrible for the most part and are only 9 out of 99. There are two playable BR changelings, and killbots had a huge design space that wasn't implemented. They offered very little to make Mary work in Commander

    Is that vehicle the worst one eva ?
    Cuz its a baer that needs Crew 2, needs to be in a dedicated deck & has to be ctewed first everytime it wants to get a countet & is even Rare.
    I gotta say. Vehicles really turn me off this set. Big FAIL


    It doesn't need to be crewed to get counters

    Three white one-drops for Dinosaur deck and they are all Humans?

    This card doesn't necessarily need it's backside to be viable. Take advantage of the draw engine and you should be good to go.

    Seems a lot worse than Broodmate Dragon or Armada Wurm despite the superior mana cost... it would have been much better if the smaller token creature didn't get all the juice. As it stands there are very few dinosaurs that make me care about boosting other dinosaurs.


    It would have been better if you had 7 power coming in hot at 5 mana?


    Not what I meant... I think the initial rush of "This card is incredible!"is way off base though. At 5 mana it's pretty lackluster, in large part because the vanilla 4/4 body is unimpressive. It's total P/T ratio is great, but trample is weak on a 3/3, so the haste is really it's best selling point, and compared to Glorybringer it just falls short in almost every way.

    It's best shot at being playable is dino tribal... and there are currently a few mediocre dinosaurs and no great ones, so I'm dubious that such a deck will be a thing.
    Respectfully, I think your opinion is bad and you should feel bad.

    Two bodies, one with trample and another granting a static effect, and still you find it weak? Card is probably good enough to be played outside of dino tribal in standard.


    Losing to Glorybringer is a real problem in this meta. Although, this at least leaves behind a body

    This is a welcome reprint for standard with great art. The original art is still amazing though. Very good reprints in this set

    This set is 13 types of meh. I'm a Nicol Bolas fanboy sure, but this set isn't worth buying a box over.

    Eternalize is overall a lackluster mechanic. The red rare khenra and the white rare cat are the best of the bunch

    That's quite the board wipe. Bolas is throwing down finally, and I'm a little surprised Bolas knows their group's title.


    Probably read Jace's mind before they fought.


    He does have Tezzeret to commune with as well

    With these 5 revealed, we are still missing 3 deserts. Does that mean the remaining 3 are rare? Especially considering 10 of the revealed deserts are part of cycles

    a weaker and more exspensive cmc of Deicide basicly

    oh that card is a story highlight by the way remember that


    Uhhhhh, in what world is exile target creature weaker than exile target enchantment? lolololol.


    Twice as expensive, half as useful. The former was an amazing card in it's time. This is 4 mana creature removal with marginal upside. This isn't bad, but you are discounting cost effectiveness. Deicide always gave you a mana advantage over youe opponent considering most enchantments and enchantment creatures at the time were 2cmc and above. This? All gods are 4 mana or below except the Grixis ones which means this card's optimal use 5/8 times isn't even mana optimal.


    It doesn't matter what the mana cost of the God is. This spell exiles it no matter the cost and does it the same way regardless of whether the God cost 3 or 5 or 7.
    "Mana optimal" isn't really a thing.


    If being mana optimal wasn't a thing, dispel, essence scatter and negate wouldn't be used over 3 mana generic catch all counterspells. And murder would be used over fatal push, grasp of darkness, etc. When your answers are more expensive than the threats you are answering, that's a huge problem. Being mana efficient is important for answers.
