Dear, WotC, I know you won’t be listening to me, but…
What it says on the tin.
The list I ended up with: http://cubecobra.com/cube/overview/1d4yl
It’s weird that Valki can only change forms once, but here we are anyhow. This is actually an interesting card. This color pairing is hardly the best for ramping, but being able to play Tibalt even once is very strong. If Tibalt dies, that’s not really a problem.
Spoilers for new Theros started yesterday. There were leaks before, but I’m going to be boring and join the no-leaks crowd. This means that we only have three cards to play with at this point. Not sure there was anything Standard playable anyhow. (Although there might have been, I just don’t remember.)
But let’s start with this.
So, [scryfall]Yarok, the Desecrated[/scryfall]… a card made for the fans of [scryfall]Panharmonicon[/scryfall]. Personally, I haven’t been that keen on breaking that particular card, but in the context of our meta, where wraths are plentiful, I would rather go for [scryfall]Mulldrifter[/scryfall]s than Baneslayers. (You can read more on this here.)
OF course, it would be easy to just throw a bunch of creatures with ETB-abilities into the deck, but I decided to go with a theme. I mean Yarok happens to be of a specific type. Elementals it is (even though horrors does tickle me as a theme, but there aren’t that many of them as of yet).
George R. R. Martin’s epic has never been a personal favorite, but I’ve read all five novels and now I’ve finally caught up to the HBO series as well. Initially, my decision was to stop watching it, as I don’t find much delight in brutally killing off characters I’m fond of; but the hype around these latest episodes turned my head around.
Turns out that they weren’t worth the hype, but they taught me a thing or two about the creator’s integrity.Continue reading
As mentioned before, I always brew with Lilianas. [scryfall]Liliana, Dreadhorde General[/scryfall] is not going to be an exception.
The best thing about Captain Marvel is that it’s a superhero movie that actually feels heroic. The emotions are sincere, it proudly stands behind its heroine, it doesn’t water down the important moments with irony.Continue reading
A lot of Sultai Midrange, Monoblue, Nexus variants and Monowhite, but let’s take a little deeper look, shall we?
Weirdly enough (although obviously it doesn’t actually mean anything) I was designing a card for just this thing in a dream recently. I just don’t remember what it did. I do have a design of this on our Guild forums. Funnily enough, it was also a 12/12 with a casting cost of 2UG, but that’s pretty much the extent of the similarities. Well, that and it couldn’t attack early either. Mine required you control 20 lands. It also had a partner and it gained a +1/+1 counter any time any player revealed a land card from their library or put a land card into play from the library.
Wow. What to do with this?
