    Aside from the rather obvious elves, it also boosts Dryard Arbor to become a pseudo-Sol Land.

    I wonder if that works with the tap ability on DRS, and if the extra mana comes with the same restrictions (for example, can you tap Beastcaller Servant mana to cast a sorcery?)

    Edit: Does it interact with cards like Springleaf Drum that tap creatures as a cost to produce mana?

    B
    Knight of the Ebon Legion
    1/2
    Rare
    Creature - Vampire Knight
    2B: ~ gets +3/+3 and gains Deathtouch until end of turn.
    In the beginning of your end step, if any player lost 4 or more life this turn, put a +1/+1 counter on ~

    Correct me if I am wrong, but you can pump this guy multiple times in the same turn no? Its a stronger card than Nantuko Shade if so.

    Is this one of the top 3 best black one drop creatures ever printed? Probably has no home in legacy but I think it will be a staple in Modern Mono Black Devotion decks that play Nykthos, Shrine of Nix.

    In standard currently, Mono Red Aggro, Mono Green Aggro, Mono Blue Tempo and Mono White Aggro are all viable competitive decks thanks to the Dominaria cycle, but Mono Black got screwed.
    Maybe Wizards is trying to make up for how shitty Dread Shade ended up being.

    It honestly might have a home in Legacy over all other formats thanks to the new Zombie dino potentially resurrecting Suicide Black. Snuff Out, etc. are all things that pump this guy.

    Carrion Feeder
    Death's Shadow
    Disciple of the Vault
    Gravecrawler
    Putrid Imp
    Stitcher's Supplier

    And/or Deathrite Shaman (I'd count it)

    I would love nothing more than to see Sui Black make a resurgence. Sui Black has a habit of getting mana flooded and top decking Dark Rituals midgame. Atleast now, it will have something decent to do with that mana.

    Fair enough but everything on that list outside of the banned card and Gravecrawler are only playable in narrow decks built around a specific combo/synergy. This guy is playable in any aggro deck that has access to black mana.

    I mean, the same can be said of a lot of cards, but I don't think you'd get arguments on something like "Show and Tell is one of the most powerful Blue sorceries ever printed" just because the card is narrow ;)

    Re: Core Set 2020 Spoilers

    I think there is a 50% chance that the below card will also get spoiled in Magic 2020...

    Knight of the Ivory Legion - W

    Creature - Human Knight, Rare

    2W: Knight of the Ivory Legion gets +3/+3 and gains Lifelink until end of turn.

    In the beginning of your end step, if any player has gained 4 or more life this turn, put a +1/+1 counter on Knight of the Ivory Legion.

    1/2


    Do you think DnT would play it?

    They are not going to print any super powerful Vampires until this rotates out of standard.

    Get a playset when it rotates out of standard and can be had for cheap, and file it alongside [[Didgeridoo]] as a card that will someday become amazing.

    What about using Sorin as a cheaper Didgeridoo, or Didgeridoo 5-8? Combining him with Artificial Evolution to get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn out?

    Something like the following to start?

    Thunderbluff w/o Didgeridoo?

    4 Sorin, Imperious Blood Lord
    4 Show & Tell

    4 Artificial Evolution
    4 Brainstorm
    4 Ponder
    4 Force of Will

    6 Giant Eldrazi
    4 Big Vampire

    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Chrome Mox

    14 Lands

    I just realized that you don't even need Mephidross Vampire for this to be good. Sorin adds deathtouch and lifelink on the creature regardless (aka Basilisk Collar), so Walking Ballista is going to murder a bunch of creatures anyway, regardless of size. Man, this card is good.

    4. Plains
    5. Tundra
    6. Hallowed Fountain
    7. Field of the Dead

    After that every fetchland you play is a pair of 2/2's, the second of which you can summon at instant speed. Like, that's a really strong win condition, at the cost of replacing your second Tundra with a Hallowed Fountain, or maindecking the Mountain from your board.

    Might also work for semi-land based decks like Two-Green/Sylvan Plug.

    Snow lands are the gift that keeps on giving.

    Because you tend to get overexcited and Miracles will never, ever consider that card; the snark you got was the minimum amount that could be expected.

    Honestly, Field of the Dead isnt even playable in standard or modern. It's actually one of the worst cards I have ever seen. Good luck trying to assemble your 7 lands while show and tell drops Emrakul t2 or Storm goes off t2. Like, what deck would that card even be good against? Ever hear of a card named Wasteland? Plus, miracles has no way to fetch for a land, so what run 4? What lands are you replacing? This is better then Entreat the Angels? Mentor? Jace? I don't even get why this card is being suggested at all.

    It's honestly not too hard to get 7 land names with Standstill by playing some snow basics, I can see it as a viable SB card. Playing it main seems ambitious as it screams Azcanta must be in your deck (and Azcanta has to be working probably). Really unsure why it's etb tapped though, when it isn't going to do anything till turn 7

    Seems pretty good... Mid-game it's a 3/4 for with upside.

    This one should work with treasure and investigation tokens, right?

    Seems pretty good indeed.

    Doesn't this clash with Chalice @1? For what it's worth, it could turn a City of Traitors into a land that isn't dead in the waters.
