We know History of Benalia is a good card, but what about other Sagas? Some of them are very strong in limited, at the very least, so why not try them in constructed.
You should never equate limited and constructed. They are very different formats, but if a card is very strong in limited, it probably has at leat potential in constructed. Pack Rat. Need I say more?
Yargle, Glutton of Urborg is an interesting case. MaRo has communicated to us that it’s more or less a joke. Something they put in Dominaria just to have vanilla legend in there.
However, it is quite unique. How many legendary creatures with such a high power with that mana do you have? Actually, only one bests our little frog spirit: Lord of Tresserhorn
A 4/4 Vigilance for four mana is at least playable… sort of. And there’s quite a few knights available. I thought they were supposed to be rarer than soldiers?
Aryel, Knight of Windgrace
Legendary Creature – Human Knight
2W, T: Create a 2/2 white Knight creature token with vigilance.
B, T, Tap X untapped Knights you control: Destroy target creature with power X or less.
I like her quite a bit and already designed a Commander deck around her, so let’s try this one as well. Feels pretty much like we only have to cut the EDH deck to pieces.
There’s an excellent monogreen Nissa available as well, but why not use blue? Actually, I’d rather use a monocolored deck in this particular environment, but I do have a fondness for Simic. Maybe we’ll get back to the other options later on. There’s Rashmi, Eternities Crafter as well.
As you have probably heard, since you’re here, WotC announced a new format today. It’s known as Brawl. If you didn’t hear about, you can find it here. Basically 60 card Commander with Standard legal cards, 30 starting life and some rules they apparently haven’t really thought through on when the commander goes to the Command Zone.
One of the cards leaked in Dominaria Release Notes was this:
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive
Legendary Creature — Human Rogue
Creatures you control with power or toughness 1 or less can’t be blocked.
My favorite tribe: Wizards. Not very supported one in general, but here’s one:
Naban, Dean of Iteration
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
If a Wizard entering the battlefield under your control causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
Why have anything to cast in your library, if you have other players’ libraries to work with.
