    Chain of Vapor, go off.
    Seems like a wombo-combo with Little Teferi then - they can't play anything on your turn, but you can play extra stuff on theirs.

    As part of a broader stax-like or DnT type strategy with 3feri it could work, sure.

And your entire point is nonsense, Chant buys you one turn, this new cards forces your opp to have to dig for answers before going off, buying you multiple turns. And this being one mana makes it way better then the other options.
    Yes, that's the exact reason Silence/Chant is not a great first choice vs. combo as a hate piece. And Chant is at least versatile enough to act as a fog or weak time-walk effect.

    Look, I don't care if you like the card, take it to a fancy restaurant, buy it lobster, take it back to your place, whatever. I can see how it looks enticing, casting cost of 1, semi-relevant Legacy effect, but I'm telling you, it's not good enough for what you're wanting it to do, and I know this from years of trying to get the same results from very similar cards.

    Cheaper is better, though. This could easily fill Maverick's/D&T's blind spot in the one mana department - unless you consider narrow stuff like Mindbreak Trap a viable option.

    Deafening Silence is a massive step forwards for WotC design - I'm genuinely shocked that they figured out that abilities that shouldn't exist should be at the very least symmetical.

    Makes you wonder when they're going to figure out playable draw hate that is symmetrical and not fucking blue.

    It doesn't even matter now. The non symmetrical blue draw hate is so much better than whatever non symmetrical hate they make would be

    Stonecoil Serpent, X
    Artifact Creature
    Reach, trample, protection from multicolored
    When Stonecoil Serpent enters the battlefield, put X +1/+1 counters on it.
    0/0

    ... decay and trophy proof worth it?

    Also KCommand and walks past Strix and coatl. Trample through TNN and can block a delver

    I think the card is interesting, presumably one pairs it with Sol Lands, so X=4 is plausible, which means it can "beat" TNN, and since one is in a Stompy shell, presumably one plays Chalice to pass Swords and Push.

    An interesting card, I think it's ceiling is the ceiling of the shell it can feasibly be worked into.


    That Gargoyle is interesting as well, for different reasons.

    If you copy this, do you get to play one more spell per copy? This is important...

    And this new wording is relieving.

    I think we will have to wait for an official ruling on that. My guess, by the way the seem to have chosen to word it, is no, but that depends on what they mean by "more." Two instances of "only one more" might seem to be 2, but could also be construed as two instances of the same injunction.

    No, it's one more spell. If you cast 8x Final Fortune, you still lose the game after your next turn, not 8 turns later ;)
