    Wonderful.
    I bet she is fantastic in the mirror. Jitte. Karakas in a pinch. Ballista.

    I have said in the distant past that this deck would run 8 mother of runes were it possible. Of course there were fewer attractive options then. Keep in mind that given enough of these in a deck the self protection becomes less important because you are likely to have two out.

    There's also this to grab more Moms (or Ballista, for the matter)



    Much better body than Recruiter and some random-ass effect tacked onto it, but way more limited in what it's able to choose.

    That said, if you have recursion set up (Sword and Light and Shadow, bonus points for Vial @3) or Oath of Ghouls, you can soft-lock your opponent while continously fetching 1 CMC creatures.

    Apart from Mom, D&T never had much 1-drops creatures. The whole bases of D&T creature pile is made out of 2-drops and supporting 3-drops (beaters/tutors/wisp). So unless there are good 1-drops to add to the pile, it doesn't seem worth it and Recruiter just does the job better.

    Probably too slow. But boarding in Ranger Captain with Judges Familiars would pretty much lock out a combo player.

    That's not true. "Back in the days" (in more civilized times, when combat damage used the stack), D&T ran up to a playset of Isamaru, Hound of Konda. However, (usually) no copies of Mother of Runes, at least for the first two or so years :) I also remember when Finn and the other brewmasters over at mtgthesource spent *months* looking for viable 1-drops to account for a format that was speeding up at the time. Findings back then were stuff like Figure of Destiny, its slightly worse brother Student of Warfare, but I don't recall any making a real dent in the end.

    Decent body, additional card selection, enables more Flickerwisp shenanigans, it can grab Mother of Runes, Giver of Runes, Walking Ballista and Judge's Familiar, what's not to love?

    If you play this card, you trade better stats for worse tutoring. Recruiter is much better at grabbing the right cards, and cards that actually do something when they etb.
    RC of Eos wants to be two things, a beater and a tutor, but does both very poorly.

    Now what's the value of his last ability ?

    it means storm straight up cant go off without getting rid of him. You let them cast a few spells, then sac it (or vial it in and sac it )
    but honestly its too slow for that.

    It IS nice that you can sac it in response to a miracle trigger off terminus, but in general I dont think it's good enough. Maybe if it was a 3/2 so we could recruiter for it

    You can use it actively to get rid of countermagic and combad tricks. Upkeep use to not get killed by WoG effects.
    Also you make Terminus and Infernal Tutor cry.

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Regarding Ranger-Captain of Eos: If you live to 3 mana against Storm, chances are you won't need that kind of "oh shit!"-button anyway... It's probably better suited against control, where you don't want your opponent to fuck with your stuff during a/the pivotal turn.

    Looking at its mana cost and body, I'd have a very hard time running it over, say, Brimaz, King of Oreskos.
