    It's slow for traditional UR Delver.

    Hey, woah now, some of us are still coasting through midlife while we still can.
    The stack was the new hotness once, so obviously the best place to apply it was EVERYTHING!

    Re: [Deck] Food Chain Combo

    Pretty sure after reading it a few times, the cast from exile is only after resolving the Adventure, so there is no infinite combo to be had with these creatures

    Yeah you're probably right.

    If the Mountain was direct damage, that'd be something for Burn.
    But it'll probably be creature gets haste or intimidate or something.

    I think the answer will be yes, since it has all the trappings of a split card, with a complete card name, casting cost & typing along with the "main" card. So unless it's on the stack, then it...

    It'd be narrow but flavorful if Devour was coming back, and these like double counted as sacrifice fodder. But that's a RG mechanic, nowhere close to UG.

    The fact that you can cast it off a Tropical Island and Volcanic Island, and aren't radically punished meant it has zero hope of avoiding the blue decks.

    Re: Raze + Arcanist + W6

    Nature's Claim is good a good CMC, but FTW is right, giving them life is giving them an extra turn.
