    Re: Legacy Hollow-Vine

    Seeing Anger makes me wonder if there's an Entomb package that makes sense. The deck already runs several cards that work well with it. Phantasmagorian would turn Entomb into a discard outlet, and...

    I'm not sure about "really shaking things up" but there are a lot of cards with heavy potential. For example, Gaea's Will seems like the sort of card that will either do little, or get banned for...

    Deep Analysis could do something like that. Breakthrough is probably pretty good off the top when hellbent too.

    Re: Legacy Hollow-Vine

    I always wonder about Hazoret's Monument for something like this, but it's probably too expensive and too cute. The same is even more true of Song of Creation.

    It does make me wonder: Is it worth...

    Huh. So it becomes a saga without any chapter abilities and just dies on ETB. Cute.

    You could compare it to Pack Rat that you don't have to discard for too.

    There's a sort of paradox - if the enchantment can be cast for less then 3 mana, then Estrid's Invocation is likely to be a bad deal. If the enchantment can be cast for more than 3 mana and is worth...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    I guess the intent is [number of harmonic prodigies] + 1, but does that match the rules text?

    The template on cards like Panharmonicon has a pattern like: "If [some kind of event] causes [some...

    Cost reduction effects like that have a lot of potential, but only in decks that cast a lot of spells. Seems like they've printed a lot of creature-based cost reduction and spell rebate stuff in...

    Seems like it's got potential against decks that like to go wide with small bodies like Death and Taxes or Elves where it could be a 2-for-2 or better.

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Burn really wants creatures with haste or ones that do damage without attacking. So that body really isn't a great fit.

    I think the card is a better fit in a more tempo oriented kind of thing. ...

    How do you feel about Sword of the Animist? How many basics do most legacy decks run these days? This sword seems like it's way more niche than the other ones.

    I may be overestimating it, but it seems very much like the sort of card that they ought to ban, but won't. I imagine that it will get restricted in vintage fairly quickly since it can find mana...

    Honestly, Urza's Saga seems more likely. It's got that "we didn't test for eternal formats" vibe.
