I mean, come on, I have to try….
There hasn’t been a set with a bunch of elves in it, but they have sort of snuck up on me by just being around on several sets. Ixalan has none and we are losing some from Kaladesh, but the losses are not major and there’s some very interesting ones on Ravnica. Some I didn’t even think of as elves.
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.
Pro Tour Dominaria is in the books… and it didn’t quite pan out like one would hope. There were 28 [card]Goblin Chainwhirler[/card]s in the main decks of top 8. That’s 28 out of possible 32. Yes. It was bad.
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.
