    It's changed s few times, someone remind me: if you have a legendary out and you play another of the same name: are the unwanted ones put to the graveyard as a state based effect or do state based effects force a sacrifice

    Re: War of the Spark

    They aren't sacrificed nor destroyed. They are put from the battlefield into the graveyard (so it does count as dying).

    You can't chain Eldritch Evolution because it gets exiled.

    Veteran Explorer is an interesting idea, but I'm sceptical. Giving your opponent lands leverages the advantages you gain by cheating on mana, and since it isn't a mana dork by itself, it doesn't allow you to cast Evolution on T2.

    Isn't that also Anti-Emrakul tech to deal the last few points of damage?
    Could be brutal with Cataclysm. But I prefer Greater Gargadon. Either way, pick these up boys. It is going to have value as a casual staple for years to come and is bound to be big in Standard.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if that thing showed up in Legacy sooner or later. Decent body, still reasonably costed, adds reach and can mow down small creatures and Planeswalkers alike. Looks like a great midrange card in my books.

    Goblin Bombardment + zombies is clearly the way for that Devil

    Judith triggers on sweepers and is a lord. Apples and oranges.

    Zombardment definitely comes into mind with this card.

    This guy triggers on fetches and wastes also which isn't nothing. Judith is probably less build around because it's just a dies ability, but this guy I feel like has a ton of perennial if you decide to build around him a bit. Also Judith being legendary is a drawback in a format of Karakas. At the end of the day, why not both?

    probably because 3 man is a lot for zombardment and it doesn't have that mayn 3 drops slots?

    Judith is way better than mayhem devil in zombardment and she isnít even good there. Both are quite win-more. If youíre able to activate goblin bomardment multiple times you probably win.

    What are ways to break this? I'm thinking about Allosaurus Rider and Vine Dryad, but what could you fetch with this to break it? Mana dork into tutor tool box might also be appealing.

    Also, "additional cost" creatures like Skaab Ruinator, conditional ones like Myr Superion or Sera Avenger, creatures with +1/+1 counter synergies like Arcbound Ravager or Incubation Druid and oddities like Epochrasite.

    I don't think it's worth it to first pay for a low cost creature, then sac it and pay UG to search for a pretty vanilla creature with 5 power. Why not just play Tarmogoyf then?
