    This. I'm looking at it more for modern. Between Allosaurus Riders and maybe Hooting Mandrills we might be able to power out something. 8 effects like this I feel like is the tipping point we needed to base a whole strategy around

    It's not playable, but I think we need to talk about Eternal Skylord

    Flying zombie army.

    First we had slow zombies, then running zombies, now flying zombie armies.

    Mark my words: One day we'll get a mechanic called "last strike" and there will be a 3/1 zombie for 1.
    (also triple strike will come soon after.)

    Both of those already exist though.

    Generic zombie tokens and the stupid zombie army tokens shouldn't be able to fly like that! This is a big flavor fail!
    Unconventional Tactics was at least a bit funny and just one creature until end of turn, but the Eternal Skylord is too much for my taste.

    That said, in Commander you already could play Archetype of Imagination, Levitation or Wonder in your Gisa&Geralf Deck. So it doesn't change much.

    But for real. I've been calling this for a decade plus now.
    I collected on a 13 year old bet when Unstable came out, lol.

    Yeah, I mean, it's plausible. Last strike in particular, since it really makes sense. I think the biggest issue is that the name just sounds kind of stupid (triple-strike too though).

    Lumbering, slow-strike, or a play on inept are some keywords I could see them using.

    You're right, tutors are better for combos. So maybe Cephalid Illusionist/Shaman En-Kor make for better fetch targets, but I'm not sure that that qualifies as an "abuse" of the tutor.

    Feather the something or other
    RWW
    Legendary Angel
    Flying
    3/4

    Bunch of rules text that doesn't really apply in Legacy

    Is that playable?

    Re: War of the Spark

    Rector Fit will like Neoform. Turn 1 Veteran Explorer, Turn 2 Neoform out an Incubation Druid saccing explorer generates 8 mana on turn 3 that can be used to hardcast any of the giant spells that Rector Fit has in hand. Plus it doubles an another way to sac a Rector.

    but, isn't the ability quite unique? (I wish this was a UW card to be able to put it in a blink EDH deck).
    And you could play a bad card to make other bad cards better!
    Death and taxes!!

    Play 4CB!

    MIght not be legacy relevant but her additional text is actually pretty cool:

    Feather the Redeemed RWW
    Legendary Creature - Angel
    Flying
    Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell that targets a creature you control, exile that card instead of putting it into your graveyard as it resolves. If you do return it to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.
    3/4

    --

    best card to pair this with is Psychotic Fury - you have a draw engine and essentially give feather permanent double strike. Then eventually use with Seize the Day and double attack with her.

    This card seems pretty powerful within the set itself (i.e Standard or Limited), as there are tons of instants/sorceries that target your own creatures. Defiant Strike, for example.

    It's a sweet card. Unfortunately probably a losing strategy in legacy
