    Re: Ruby Storm

    Cool card, the effect is powerful, but a bit on the expensive side.

    I've played 3 color for a short while, just a tropical (started with taiga but switched) and 3 veil of summer. I never had any...

    I've been having really bad results lately. The delver matchup has never been that great, but lately it feels unwinnable and also a lot more frequent. BR-reanimator has become more popular online...

    In my experience (currently playing 1x island and 1x mountain) it improves the deck vs thalia/thorn/trinisphere as you can dig towards answers better with ponder than AoI. But Chalice is obviously...

    Thanks for the report! If i see correctly you have 4 cards in total at 1, so i would say that chalice on 1 isn't much of a problem even if you don't have bonus round :)

    Re: Ruby Storm

    The fact that it's an enchanment is both a blessing and a curse. Preboard few decks can...

    My instinct is to be negative about new cards :)

    The good parts
    Flood protection
    Miracle interaction

    The bad parts
    Damage

    It's an interesting question!

    I think that the only weaknesses that is specific to the UR version is probably
    1) Non basic land hate.
    2) Draw-hate, like leovold,...

    True about hope being good vs stoneblade as well. The problem vs delver is mostly that they can just leave one delver home to negate it. Vs UR delver I wouldn't even board it in when they have...

    Trigunner, I agree completely. It's a 5 mana spell that is reliant on having good cards in your graveyard. But can't deny that x>10 is cool :)

    I think Ral is cool, 4 mana is alot, and needing both blue and red cuts off seething song to cast it. So it might be a bit too slow, but the effect is really really really good. It will suck to draw...

    Can you explain that reasoning?
    In my experience empty is good vs delver and miracles, and not that good vs the rest of the field. I think my suggestion would be to cut those for lightning bolts.
