They are clearly pushing morphs, or megamorphs. Why not try to do something with them?
I already wrote about this guy yesterday:
I guess I missed something special.
Someone had found his or her way into this blog by using the words “wood sage mtg pauper commander”. That got me thinking. First thought was “is that really uncommon”? I would’ve thought such an old card would be rare with its awkward build-around abilities, but apparently it was reprinted in Conspiracy, so now it’s uncommon.
Second thought: It does really have potential, so why not?
Its kind of early with only two cards available, but each of them is good enough to push certain archetypes. I’m guessing Crux of Fate will be played more, as the UB Control archetype already exists, as well as Mardu Planeswalkers, so there are decks you can easily add it to.
Personally, that’s dull and I’m much more interested in what Yasova Dragonclaw will do to the format.
I mentioned this possibility before in my article on my Crypt Rats deck. There I was thinking that this deck might be a little too much EDH and not enough Pauper. However, despite this, Species Gorger definitely has an appeal to me as a commander. Its just a matter of finding enough creatures with ETB and LTB abilities at common.
