Amonkhet Brews, pt. 16 – Abusing the New CMC Rule

If you don’t know, unlike previously CMC of split cards is now the sum of the two parts. This was done due to the abuses on older split cards with cards like [card]As Foretold[/card] and the different Expertises (mostly [card]Kari Zev’s Expertise[/card]). On the other hand, there are cards that like your cards being expensive.

[draft]Sorin, Grim Nemesis
Combustible Gearhulk[/draft]

There’s two split cards in Amonkhet that seem strong here.

[draft]Cut // Ribbons
Never // Return[/draft]
