    Don't think it's good enough for Legacy, but never going to hesitate to put up a 3-mana walker.

    Also, nerd-meters are only good for putting new cards with janky cards. Known combos? Pssh, nerd-meter's don't work on that level. It has to be fun and underpowered my friend, otherwise you're spikin'.

    It's close though. The 2nd and 3rd abilities are very good for a 3-mana planeswalker. The first is unfortunately going to be a 'do nothing' in Legacy because the UW decks don't care too much about attacking with creatures (and when they do the game is usually over, like with Mentor or Entreat tokens.)

    I think this is a great PW for something like Polymorph in modern. It provides a token, digs really deep once the ultimate is active, and is in good colors for tokens and control to get to a combo win.

    3 mana is a good number. i think the -1 is actually pretty good here as the gain 1 life could be useful. a 3 mana token making planeswalker in colors where FoW can protect it isn't so bad. bit awkward with how the first ability might play out, but you can get multiple triggers off of the 1st ability.

    wouldn't mind trying out as a 1 of in some decks to see how it plays out.

    also:

    Cire
    "Biomancer's Pet" GU
    Creature - Mutant
    Activated abilities of creatures you control cost up to 2 less to activate. This effect can't reduce the amount of mana ability costs to activate to less than one mana.
    T: The next time a creature you control activates Adapt this turn, it uses Adapt as if it has no +1/+1 counters.
    2/2

    would it be that much to make this a changeling. rebels would have really liked this!

    Imho it has a good chance to be Legacy-playable. It dodges AD, Bolt, and has air superiority against Delver, Flickerwisp, Clique, etc., all while sitting on its ass generating card quality for no further mana investment.

    First ability is meh, #2 is alright, #3 is good, although not game-winning. Is there a way to take advantage of artifact token generation?

    Dovin is interesting because under no pressure, his -1 can still act as a +1... Hear me out:

    Cast, minus 1, get a Thopter, loyalty goes from 3 to 2.
    Next turn, plus 1 Dovin back to 3, then attack and he goes to 4 if you connect.

    I was going to get excited about some WU Sky Hussar deck, but this think makes a colorless flyer :(

    Good points. I like it enough to even test it in UW Landstill, honestly. I have some flexible slots in my list because I have an ETutor package maindeck (6 slots.) I could easily put that to the side and maindeck this guy. Curving out is so important with that deck. Even being on the draw it's a very good effect.


    First ability is meh, #2 is alright, #3 is good, although not game-winning. Is there a way to take advantage of artifact token generation?
    The ultimate is basically a better Dig Through Time at sorcery speed. Three cards instead of 2, digging 10 deep instead of 7. You can't get it instant for cheap, but I imagine it would happen at around the same time in the game in a fair deck. I could see this being ok in Esper Stoneblade because of Lingering Souls making it easier to protect. You can boost the loyalty to 5 on the turn 4, 7 turn 5, ultimate turn 6. The issue is that it fights for space with Liliana, TNN, Vindicate, Snap + 1mana spell.

    As far as artifact token generation, Whir of Invention, Polymorph. EDIT: Synergies with new Karn, definitely something cool to do in standard.

    Nerd-meter evaluation: pair Dovin with Hidden Stockpile, Thopter Foundry, and Sword of the Meek.

    good point, didn't realize it was actually +1 without any connecting creatures. i think this PW could be alright. it's not good against most of the field but could be pretty strong vs the control decks as a sb card.

    Good point. Decks that don't pressure you too much will let this guy ultimate pretty fast.

    If Jace Cunning Castaway didnít see play, neither will this. Except maybe in a modern polymorph proteus staff deck paired with other token makers.

    Maybe, but this is significantly better than Jace.

    Zombardment? Either way, doesn't seem too hot in Legacy terms.

    Lookit that type line "Human Shaman". It'll see play in Modern, it's another Lord for Humans there with anti-wrath protection, and the "any target" bit means it can kill 'walkers or other critters in response, not just burn face. Also makes suiciding attackers and blockers into removal spells. Strong card.

    This card is very good and will see play. Modern humans, or legacy humans. Don't matter which.

    And which card in that deck would this double off-color card replace?

    I donít wanna stir too much, but Judith? Like for serious? Everyone elseís names in Ravnica has some fantasy element to them... then we get hit by a Judith.

    The names great in real life though donít get me wrong - just seems out of place in a fantasy setting. Good card though.
