    When ~ enters the battlefield, choose one-
    -Put two +1/+1 counters on ~.
    -Destroy target artifact or enchantment.
    -You gain 4 life.

    Pretty good card. Already Reclamation Sage stats, but now you can get an additional beater or can sustain against Burn, UR Delver. Probably replaces Rec Sage in Aggro Loam, Maverick, and Aluren.
    As someone who has taken an interest in all things Fauna Shaman I am EXTREMELY PUMPED FOR RAVNICA!!!!!!!1!!!!1eleven!!!!!!11!!!1!! Cards like this are exactly why. Solid card, and I hope to see many more solid multi-colored cards coming out of the set.

    Just a quick thing on Mission Briefing, an opponent can nuke your yard but then this spell will resolve putting up to two cards into the graveyard. There will be no window for the opponent to interact (unless they are the AP and have Extirpate) if you surveil'd a valid card type (I would say target, but it's chosen).

    Really though, the only time this one is strictly better than Snapcaster is if you are trying to mill towards Surgical. All the cute tricks don't approach the power level of Kcomm recur SCM and JTMS -1 replay SCM.
    ---
    The Lazav card isn't good enough for Dreadnought. When you talk about most UB strategies it has to be better than either Delver, JVP, Dark Confidant, Gurmag/Tasigur because those are the slots you have to cut from. Other direct competition from colorless 2 mana, noncreature enablers which fundamentally alter the rules (i.e. hurt other decks, increasing win %age). In many ways Lazav is just another printing of Varolz and Mimic. The card is going to be more at home in a deck which can Entomb/pseudo-Entomb, and probably has shenanigans like copy Goose to counter interaction.

    Pay 2 life: Surveil 2.*(Look at the top two cards of your library. You may put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

    And Nic Fit, for those builds that run it. So far this set has been pretty kind to BGW decks.

    For better or worse, this set is pretty much shaping up to be RtR v2. It's an incredibly derivative* set with some cool individual cards.

    Definitely shaping up to be one of the better sets in recent memory for Legacy, even if I'm 100% certain that most of the fun, powerful stuff will be in BUG colors.

    *Shocks, Gates, Guildmages, Guild leaders at Mythic with champions at Rare...maybe there will even be a minor auras/Enchantments subtheme!

    Not too surprising, given that BG is the overall best combination with the strongest multicolor cards in general. GW is historically also on the stronger side of gold cards.

    That does seems kinda nifty, although I don't know any deck that would want it. Slapping some pump or equipment on it is huge, though.

    Probably Modern Humans? I don't know enough about the deck to suggest what they'd cut for it though.

    Boros Swiftblade revisited. Eventually there will be enough double strikers like this that you can make a bad "infect" deck with them.

    Wow I want Swiftblade Vindicator to be good.
    I recall Kamigawa/Ravnica Standard equipping Jitte to Boros Swiftblade and thinking maybe Jitte is a bit OP.
    This is that but much better. 4 Jitte counters on attack AND block? Sword of Fire and Ice on this thing triggering twice? Even if they block with an X/2?
    In a world of KCommand it'll just be a dream, but man this thing is stacked to hold something.

    I don't see a Legacy deck wanting this, but an improved Consume the Meek:

    Consume is an Instant. If you're running a bad niche wrath, I think that's still better.

    I doubt Ritual of Soot will be played in Legacy outside of someone's FNM Demon Stompy sideboard, but I don't agree that Consume the Meek is better because it's an instant even though it costs 1 more mana. Look at the Legacy playability of Pyroclasm vs. Fiery Cannonade, to see the relative value of mana cost vs. instant speed.

    Not sure if it's ever worth it, but intuition can deal 6 damage for u2 now.

    Entomb is 3 damage for B.

    Wait what? Kozilek's Return gets lots of play because it's an instant.

    If it sees play, it might be because it kills through mother of runes.
