We have a great new tool for these decks against the white-based control decks. It has functionality against black as well.
Why is it great? Because we can sack cards like [card]Rekindling Phoenix[/card] when they are about to get hit with [card]Seal Away[/card], [card]Cast Out[/card], [card]Vraska’s Contempt[/card] or [card]Settle the Wreckage[/card]. It can actually do a lot more than that. How about the synergy with [card]Kari Zev, Skyship Raider[/card]? Just give Ragavan the boot at end of combat and that’s an extra card (sort of) for one mana. In a right deck, just sacking creatures from under a removal spell is just good as well.
