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.
First, let me say this: I don’t see this being implemented, but I do like the idea.
Seems like they are pushing this theme somewhat for the couple of months before rotation, similarly to what they’ve done in the past with various decks, making some powerful deck have a swansong before the cards fall out of standard.
Or 5-color mythics, if you prefer.
Did this feel weird to you?
This guy. Or girl. Admittedly, I don’t know, but I’m guessing (based on human prejudices) that it’s a woman.
What did we have before Rivals?
Yes, there are other good ones as well, like we saw during the Pro Tour in a monowhite aggressive deck, but we are going for a more midrangish version here, albeit with some synergies.
