    Might become a super cycle down the line since this is definitely going to be popular. Right now, with Gaea's Will and now Yavimaya, it's just to mirror iconic/popular Phyrexian cards. Though I wouldn't mind a Plains one for D&T.

    Yavimaya allows you to do silly things KotR and Quirion creatures. There's also the Forestwalk Elf lord if you want to be sneaky - Elvish Reclaimer can already fetch Yavimaya.

    A mountain one would be an auto-include in Scapeshift / Valakut combo decks.

    So how many more Modern Horizons sets will it take until Modern is Legacy - reserved list + fixed versions of broken cards?

    Its an imperfect solution but we have to accept the fact that sooner or later paper Legacy will go the way of Vintage.

    This and Zurgo have 2 power for 1 mana. Is that enough to make Mox Amber work?

    It ramps, fixes color and can generate card advantage if you hit a juicy spell. Not too shabby.

    Need to add Rishadan Ports and some other stuff to take advantage of the ramp aspects. Maybe ditch the landfall guys, put in ports and wastes, add some LD, even mutual LD with stuff like Flagstones, and now you're cooking with Crisco.

    Why are 1 drops allowed to immediately replace themselves in mana and cards???

    This is ridiculous, arcanist 2.0 assuming you are playing against another low curve deck.

    Tangle wire seems like a rad combo in here.

    At that point add in Mox Opal.

    Realistically this will just see play in UR Delver as a new card engine. They can play it T1 (holding up 10 free counters), then T2 Bolt/Chain Lightning the blocker and attack for value. Later in the game they can just dash it when there isn't a blocker up and gain immediate value. Such good tempo.

    As always it's just another blue card because it wasn't printed with cost RRR with pitch cost "sacrifice a Goblin".

    Pitch StP? I'll take it, that's pretty decent. Although 5 mana is quite alot to hardcast it. Makes the new G/W sword also alot more attractive now. I like that it can be fetched with Recruiter.

    Not too sure how to rate the Sentinel, though, except that it gets really stupid in multiples and dies like a bitch to Plague Engineer. Might be cool in Humans, though, where you can pump it.

    Edit: StP Guy is also very dumb with an active Eldrazi Displacer. I fucking love it.

    Yeah this card is way too strong. It does all what you said while having Jackal Pup stas. And for some reason can also get haste. We gone from a drawback to like 3 upsides!
