    Natural Order is a 4-drop too, but it has extra requirements.

    Re: Ruby Storm

    It's certainly worth trying out, but, individually, the sides really aren't that compelling. For ruby storm the front side is a bad cost reducer that costs 1 more to cast than Ruby Medallion and...

    Re: 12-3: Greater Good and Dreadnought combo

    This means you draw and discard 8 cards and then exile all 8 cards from the graveyard. You'd also need to exile 8 cards to start going off. That doesn't leave much margin for building up to a...

    Re: Spell casting and paying costs timing

    If you want to see the order that stuff happens in while casting spells rule 601 goes over it in painstaking detail.

    Re: In Search of Gre...Positive WR%

    Sorry, I misunderstood the rules. That's apparently only for cards that transform. (Rules 711.4c and 711.4d) I'll edit the post.

    Re: In Search of Gre...Positive WR%

    Echoing what Reeplcheep wrote, it seems like you're expecting a lot from having one 4-cc free permanent and a limited number of 5-cc payoffs. More generally it seems like the deck is split between...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    702.141d is relevant to Ethereal Valkyrie, but not to Dream Devourer. Dream Devourer never refers to any exiled cards.

    Here's the text from Dream Devourer:

    Is there some part that refers to...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    There's no rules problem per se, but it doesn't do what it ought to. I'm not 100% sure you'd be able to cast it face-down and once the card is face-down on the battlefield it's a new object and it's...

    Re: Dreadhorde + Pyromancer Ascension

    Yes. Krark works well with cast triggers. Casting spells with him out can put a counter on Ascension even if the spell is returned to hand, and, once the ascension is active, it will copy spells...

    Thanks for the responses. I'll just wait for the release notes and bring this back up in the rules questions section if it's still unclear.

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    I am comparing it to morph. Suppose that WotC wanted to print a morph analogue to Dream Devourer. What would the text of that card have to be like in order to work right? It certainly wouldn't be...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    Huh, the template is a mess - "...Each nonland card in your hand without foretell has foretell. Its foretell cost is equal to its mana cost reduced by {2}. ..." So - even with the expected scenario...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    If a card that doesn't have a foretell ability otherwise gets foretold with Dream Devourer and it leaves play, is the foretold card stranded? It doesn't have a foretold cost without the Devourer in...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    There's some other really marginal stuff.

    I wonder if the potential life gain on Search for Glory is enough to offset the 3 mana cost. There's certainly a long list of things that it can fetch.

  15. Re: How to break Krark, the Thumbless plus Summoner's Pact

    There's some synergy with Birgi, God of Storytelling from Kaldheim since it's another cast trigger, and Krark can move spells from the stack to hand for the horn side for card value. Though it's...
  16. [SCD] Birgi, God of Storytelling // Harnfel, Horn of Bounty

    One of the recently spoiled Kaldheim cards seems to have pretty heavy combo potential:



    The front side is effectively a cost reducer and the back side is a card engine. It's not that hard to...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    That's nice since it avoids graveyard dependence and it works with ritual chains too but there's a host of possibilities like just running tutors (Infernal Tutor seems good) and draw spells, Shadow...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    I guess the ability does nothing if you have no other permanents.

    There's also the repeated tutor angle with stomething like Captain Sisay or Fauna Shaman but it's really slow.

    I was wondering whether there'd be enough to double up the GG enchantment and Pyre of Heroes (the nerfed birthing pod) in standard.

    If you're ramping with a mana dork you can have the dreadnought come into play as a copy of it, or you could have it come into play as a copy of a creature your opponent controls.
