Dimir has Surveil. Surveil seems quite good and there’s plenty of cards that have it. Many of them seem (at least without context) to have an outside chance of making it in Standard.
This really isn’t my cup of tea but since Aki is too busy I decided to try writing a Magic article. I’m nowhere near as experienced in this as Aki is but don’t worry. I’ll ask his opinion on this. On the top of this I must admit that I’m more inclined to build decks with a theme rather than ultimate power level. But that’s ok since Leovold, Emissary of Trest just screams “elfball!” to me.
I probably should’ve stopped a couple of brews ago at 13, but sorry. I guess its the Madness in me. Yes, that was awful, but I’m not sorry at all.
This feels like a list of random cards I find interesting, but I’m telling you there’s a point. Somewhere. Its a bit of control deck and I have no idea whether it would work or not, because bringing in a new resource (this time exiled cards owned by opponents) complicates things. Still, why not?
There are 114 creatures in Standard with abilities that trigger when they enter the battlefield. I’m guessing there’s going to be a way to abuse this:
For some reason, none of the cards with clan abilities are multicolored.
This is perhaps more of Lauri’s department, but I’m going there.
A seemingly weak card, but I do contend it might actually be very, very good… in the right deck.
