    Ruination rioter does seem dangerous. But not in Lands, which typically does not have as many lands as you might think in its graveyard. (Freakin Kress and Six is going to be amazing in Lands, btw)

    Dredge would be a closer relative to rioterís home. But it would need a whole new build. I think this card is safe at the moment.

    Interesting new option, which is likely worse than Deluge most of the time, but could depend on where the Snow mechanic goes from here.

    I think it will be a modern card. Modern dredge is base G/R and is heavily focused on loam synergies already while playing enough lands to make this a reasonable play, usually around 20.

    I think to make Rioter work in Dredge in some kind of "one shot" build, you'd want to go back to the old 5c versions with stuff like Winds of Change or Breakthrough or Tolarian Winds. You'd try to trigger 3-4 Lingering Chills at once, then Return and Therapy the Rioter for the last damage. It's a t2-t3 kill that doesn't use the combat step and gets stopped by most Dredge hate. Maybe with Bridge from Below tokens you can get a couple shots off, but is that really better than just bringing back a couple of Lotleth Giants?

    I think Ruinator has a home, but it's more in a RG aggro shell with fetches and wastes in the 'yard, and that deck has other problems that ruinator doesn't solve.

    If skred is good enough for modern, i think dead of winter will be too.

    I don't think the card is all that strong, but I really like the design.

    Modern, yes. Because they don't have Deluge and mono-Black is already near competitive. With the Basic fetch, now one could even stay in Snow and get a splash color to clean up annoying stuff you couldn't before.

    Maybe 8 rack wants this? It could swap out Mutavaults for the new snow-manland and play snow Swamps. Seems very good, actually.

    I saw this as well. This is a really cool riff on a black Morphling. I love that with a little mana investment you can have a 1/5 deathtouch blocker, and rather than bouncing it to hand you get undying. Having it start at only 4 mana is different, maybe because they realized 5 would make it literally unplayable?

    And 3 would be busted with Unearth (which is now Modern legal). Brightling already busted up the 5 CMC paradigm anyway.

    There are a few one-drop Clerics with like 3 types, like Weathered Wayfarer and Children of Korlis which have... "an amount" of potential. Might be worth glancing at Rebels too, a lot of them have 3 creature types and even as 2-drops it's a reduction of to the card in question
    It's also good in multiples, since it gives -5 to the next one. So if, your hand was full of them and you manage to get one out for 3 mana, you can curve into two of them next turn. Magical Christmas, I know, but a 3/3 doublestrike with all the right creature types isn't bad.

    this has built in Unearth.

    you just need a way to remove the counter from it

    I love it. Don't care if it doesn't pan out. I'm just going to buy a foil playset and hold it.

    Plague Belcher doesnít remove the counter, adds negative counters. Not sure it works
