Or 5-color mythics, if you prefer.
Was there ever a card that was more clearly made for Commander? The latter ability is probably mostly flavor text. I mean, the Trample definitely matters, but the +1/+1 on a bunch of seven-drops doesn’t seem very impressive.
One of the reasons to play Commander is to get to play cards you otherwise wouldn’t.
Here’s one reason to do just that.
We have a great new tool for these decks against the white-based control decks. It has functionality against black as well.
Why is it great? Because we can sack cards like Rekindling Phoenix when they are about to get hit with Seal Away, Cast Out, Vraska’s Contempt or Settle the Wreckage. It can actually do a lot more than that. How about the synergy with Kari Zev, Skyship Raider? Just give Ragavan the boot at end of combat and that’s an extra card (sort of) for one mana. In a right deck, just sacking creatures from under a removal spell is just good as well.
Seems like they are pushing this theme somewhat for the couple of months before rotation, similarly to what they’ve done in the past with various decks, making some powerful deck have a swansong before the cards fall out of standard.
What can we do with her?
You can find the instructions here.
I wasn’t a part of the Great Designer Search in any way. I just decided this felt interesting enough for me to try out. I guess I’ll do all of the challenges eventually.
I decided to go with a tribe that doesn’t have pretty much any support: Horrors.
Well, sooner or later I had to do it.
It is, after all, an Elder Demon. Or The Elder Demon, since there aren’t any others as of this writing. In fact, all the other Elders are either Dragons or Dinosaurs. I guess you can’t reach elderhood unless your creature type starts with a ‘d’. So, while we’re waiting for that Legendary Elder Deserter to happen, we’ll talk about this.
So, the Djinn of the family is left out of the fun?
Haven’t done one of these in a while. Don’t play any PDH these days, but I guess these uncommon partners from Battlebond give unique opportunities for this.
