    I don't think 4 mana is too expensive for Legacy. It's probably fringe-playable in the same way Meren is.

    Edit:


    Is there any way to abuse this, e.g. with Replenish? It sure is expensive, but with the life swing, it's going to kill fast, especially in multiples.

    Meren is a 3/4, this is a 3/2. I think that makes a big difference in playability. Lightning Bolt is being played more than ever due to the uptick in UR Delver and RUG Delver. This guy is a value engine card. I'm not sure what deck (edit: non-Jace deck) would want something that costs 4 mana as a value engine.

    I dunno, maybe people figure something out.

    It's worth noting that you can use the ability to cast flash creatures on your opponent's turn.

    Idol seems pretty okay with Bitterblossom or other constant token generators.

    Aeon Engine seems kinda weird. Do you get an extra turn after activating it?

    Rector comes to mind. As it gains you life so Nyx Fit can use it in situations where their life got too low. And it's a curse, so it fits in with that curse-tutor curse and the Curse-tutor Witch.

    No. The person who went before you does, though.
    Well not really, but you get the idea.

    If you have three players in a game, you can activate it on the player after you's turn, then get a turn. So, not two in a row, but two separated by one.

    It's ability quite useless with less than 2 opponents though.





    Some silly cards.

    What the fuck have they done to Greven? He looks like a featureless flesh zombie now. Compare that with the original Commander Greven il-Vec.

    Yeah, the art sucks, but the card is pretty cool, I think.

    So really we're talking Grixis then, right? Snapcaster Mage and re-buying Strixes seems pretty good to me, especially with discard/permission to make sure he sticks around.

    EDIT: So Grevan will be slinging Lightning Skelemental! Draw six cards, lose 1 life.

    I'd say, do all of those. Try them and see what works best.

    T: Sacrifice ~, reveal cards from the top of you library until you reveal a land card or you revealed five cards this way, whichever comes first. If you revealed a land card this way, create a token which is a copy of that land card. Place all cards revealed this way into your graveyard.

    MoM probably works very well with this as well, if you can ignore the UUUU cost.

    Aww, yeah, that is way simpler!

    I actually think if they went the token route, they should not be Basic, just have a Basic Type.

    First enchantment removal card for mono black?



    On Twitter, Rosewater said:

    It's something we're testing of adding to black. It's worse than white and green at it and it can't destroy its own enchantments. #WotCStaff
    We're going to make enchantment removal possible for black, not easy. #WotCStaff
