    With this a large chunk of this format's tendency to play low-cost spells and critters while filling up the yard, I'm very sure an instant this flexible is going to see play!

    Drown in the Loch seems quite good for UBx Aggro/control shells, worth running at 1-2 copies in the main 60. You donít want it as either your main removal or counterspell options, but the hoops are fairly easy enough to jump through and itís very versatile. I think itís better in Modern where it can function as an arguably better Counterspell and may see play at 3-4 copies in the main deck.

    Iím not complaining, but has anyone else noticed that sets in general lately have been quite pushed in terms of power level? I much prefer this to the alternative of getting a bunch of Standard/Limited jank with maybe 1 or 2 fringe playables for Eternal formats.

    Yes, it has a lot of potential targets in the format, though seems like it's not going to be so good on the draw. Great flexiblity though.

    Yeah, I don't think it's a coincidence that these sets are the ones that came to be designed when they moved from the old R&D model to the newer one with the Play/Design team, or whatever they call it. I also prefer it, myself.

    I think they're just more conscious of non-standard applications when making the sets than they were a few years ago. Last few sets have had loads of legacy and modern playables but also lots of great commander stuff too. Just feels like they are not only thinking of standard when they design the sets.

    That is a hell of a SB card if nothing else, super good in UBW Blade.

    Re: Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

    I can't post a pic of it, and it's not like, playable or anything, but does anyone else see the card Lonesome Unicorn and immediately think of the 1980s movie "Legend" with Tom Cruise, Tim Curry, and Mia Sara?

    I thought Into the Story was a reference to "The Neverending Story" another '80s classic, but I wasn't sure, now, with this one, I'm finding it a lot more believable. Now all we need is a crystal spider or fire horse or something to provide a "Krull" reference.

    Not sure where it would fit, but I like the duality of being both a decent beater and a pseudo removal spell (that also gets better with first striking knights).

    Edit:


    Not sure if this is any good - Recurring Nightmare is probably more efficient overall.

    Looks like a combo with Grenzo Dungeon Warden, ashnods altar and any of the various 1 or 2 mana etb lifeloss creatures or purphoros.

    Priest of Gix + sac outlet would also work. Altar of Dementia would probably be the best, since it also makes the Cauldron cheaper. Still seems way inferior to Show & Derp or Reanimator.

    I also wonder what's the green artifact of the cycle is going to be.

    Blacklance Paragon seems pretty nuts, certainly limited-ruining. More than playable in any legacy deck which is interested in killing Goyf while improving their Burn matchup and wanting a dude to 1-shot JTMS (and to a lesser extent Wrenn w/ deal 3, force a followup [-1]).

    Still crossing my fingers there's an "EXCALIBUR" of some kind. I've always thought equipment was kinda stupid, but that movie's glorious.

    EDIT: Also, LEGACY PUMP KNIGHTS! Big Black needs a comeback.

    Excalibur is probably meant to be the 4RR thing right

    I really like that DT/LL knight
    Might actually try a Haakon package in Grixis Phoenix for the Buried Alive synergy

    This seems good, and could be a sign of some good rare lands coming. Oh, and it's not Legendary, BTW.

    Something like "Locktvain Castle"

    Dump your hand than draw a card for 1 life. Yes good card, but not good enough to make MBC or Pox a thing again.

    This thing gonna be strong in standard, there are already lots of black midrange and control decks out there...

    Also: Flavor win for Overhelmed Apprentice and Sorcerers Broom!

    I think because feat makes 7 Mana that Excalibur will also cost 7.
