    I doubt kird ape is even good in standard nowadays without good burn to compliment it and midrange creatures being much better than they used to be.
    I imagine red/white artificers could be 2nd tier jank in standard with Stone Haven Outfitter, the tribal goggles, Weapons Trainer and the two kird-alikes.

    EDIT: i mean white has what is essentially a 3/2 first striker for W on attack in this set. The card would've been good/playable at R 2/1, gain haste if you control artifacts, but no one has time for kird apes in 2016.
    Standard artifact Zoo with both of these guys and Lupine Prototype?!?!?
    I think the biggest thing is the deep seeded emotional understanding that the right play is the right play regardless of outcomes. The ability to make a decision 5 straight times, lose 5 times because of it, and still make it the 6th time if it's the right play. - Jon Finkel

    Gross, other formats. I puked in my mouth a little.

    It's just a shitty land for the planeswalker decks. Nissa has a UG one too.

    Another decent energy producer. We now have the turtle, the land, and the puzzleknots. . . all we really need is another card like Marvel that it's worth using energy on.

    Hangarback Walker had to be somewhere in the Kaladesh set.

    Boosters of the drafts at high-level events like the Pro Tour are opened and checked in advance.


    --
    In my opinion the whole Expeditions-Inventions-Masterpiece-thing is mainly because it sells booster boxes like crazy. Kaladesh has Fast Lands AND Inventions!!
    A side effect is that more boosters of the set are opened, so all normal cards become more accessible.
    And pimps get pimp cards.

    Most of the Kaladesh Inventions look really cool. The best artworks are probably: Mana Crypt, Static Orb, Cloudstone Curio. Aether Vial and both Moxen look also good.
    The two missing swords are probably in Aether Revolt.

    When you really want another shuffle + "cantrip" (if you are playing with a couple basics) to help setup Emrakul on top of your library with Top. So that you can cast it with Marvel

    I really think Marvel is supposed to be THE big payoff for having energy. I don't expect a better payoff this set. It's not actually the worst card in the world, provided you're playing energy cards.

    People will gladly pay 4 to win the game, and with Brainstorm and Ponder, you better be winning with this. It ends up being less mana than Sneak Attack, you keep Emrakul, and you get the cast trigger.

    The real doubt comes from whether there will be enough non-terrible cards that can make 6 energy before you lose.

    Another card with 8 symbols in a row. I wonder if R&D knows that people have subitizing limits.

    This "uncommon explicitly depends on mythic rare" stuff is pretty awful too.

    It's in the pack that the shitty walkers are in, not boosters.
    It is better to ask and look stupid then keep your mouth shut and remain so.

    Super affinity for non-creature artifacts? Stax? Maybe?

    And it works...surprisingly well with regular affinity. Frogmite + Enforcer makes this beastie free right?

    Edit: Nevermind, didn't read the "noncreature artifacts" clause.

    Well, you can power it out on T2 with 2 Sol lands and 2 Grim Monoliths.

    T1 -> Ancient Tomb, Monolith. T2 -> Another Ancient Tomb, tap the first to cast another Monolith, tap Tomb 2 & Monoliths for 8. Even leaves you with mana to pay for Daze.

    I'm not saying it's good. I'm just saying you can.
