All the double-faced cards in the set are kind of curious. They certainly have a high upside (as they are all rares), but the floor might be low as well. Is it worth it? I don’t really know. Let’s try this one…
First thing you should always do when brewing decks is figuring out what you can do with the mana. Of course, only a select few actually do this, because it’s much more fun to start with those interesting cards or synergies. Still, this is the way you should do it. (Yeah, I don’t either.)
This is an actual deck, but it does lose certain parts of it, namely Thraben Inspector, Needle Spires and possibly some other cards, but the core of the deck should still be there. But how about if we go a little bigger and find ourselves a new set of drivers, because everyone loves a dinosaur piloting an airship? Right?
One of the problems in recent history was that there weren’t really good four mana green creatures. Why was that a problem? Because there were plenty of two costing mana elves. If you play those, you want to play a four drop to play on turn three. Sure, there is Bristling Hydra, which is still quite strong, but there’s some new ones in the new set. (Actually, Crocodile of the Crossing is quite underappreciated as well.)
I don’t think this is a good idea, but has that ever stopped me from brewing before? Obviously that was just a rhetoric question, but it shouldn’t anyone, because you never know where the really workable ideas lie.
