One of the weird archetypes I like is Burn. Okay, Burn in itself isn’t strange, but I’ve liked those red-based decks that rely on just casting spells that work well with the creatures. I’m not explaining this very well, but think Thermo-Alchemist. That’s something.
Now, what’s the difference between Crackling Drake and Enigmatic Drake? Not much, actually, but at least we can use flashback, delve and the brand new jump-start (which is clearly the reason for some parts of the text on the card).
So, the Djinn of the family is left out of the fun?
Haven’t done one of these in a while. Don’t play any PDH these days, but I guess these uncommon partners from Battlebond give unique opportunities for this.
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?
