    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Oh boy Malakir Rebirth as redundant copy! As I said evoke is so easy to abuse... There are like 100 high synergie cards out there!

    Grief is apparently part of a mythic cycle. I wonder what the other ones are going to do.

    That's cool, so it's always an exile for a 1-drop and scales up easily in a 2-3 color deck, which is easy to do. Being a sorcery is a minor drawback, but not enough to hold it back. This is a shoe-in for UW control in modern and can be very good in anything playing T3Feri.

    Worse EE, except that it kills Klothys. Celestial Purge should not be in legacy SBs any more.

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    It's way less mana intensive than EE and an upgrade in most situations.

    It's going to be a modern staple for various WUG, WUB and UWR decks even as a sorcery. It's basically an improved vindicate (it can't blow up lands but it often costs 1-2 less mana than Vindicate). Going to see quite a bit of legacy play as well. And to think, they felt Vindicate was too powerful to upshift into Modern in MH1.

    Just thankful it's not a rare or mythic.

    I think you're overestimating this card. It's still a 1-for-1 that joins Plow in the "combo doesn't care" category. It isn't particularly effective to fight FIRE design with 1-for-1s (especially a potentially expensive sorcery).

    There are few legacy decks trying to pile up Path on top of Plow maindeck. There are also fewer wrath effects being played to reset the board to 1-for-1 relevance.

    Path is another card that can be replaced in a SB with this card, unless you're looking exactly for anti-Lage only.

    MH2 seems to have a squirrel theme:



    The General seems kinda interesting - is there a way to abuse its ability?

    Snapping this back gets rid of half your opponent's deck.

    Strictly better Breath of Life. Between all those new Plainscyclers and maybe the white evoke pitcher (assuming it doesn't suck), I wonder how feasible a mono-W Reanimator Stompy is going to be. They seem to tacke the white reanimation angle again lately.

    A white flash creature with a Chant effect for non-creature spells isn't actually that unrealistic.

    Let's not pretend that there isn't a real chance that they just slap a terrible Healing Salve version on a lackluster body though.

    (I mean, I kind of doubt it, but White (and even worse, Red) cards from most cycles tend to be terrible with a few notable exceptions.)

    I don't think they would go down the troll route, considering how people have been kicking and screaming for years how awful white has become.

    Reverent Mantra was the white Masques counterpart to Unmask. I wouldn't be surprised if they made a creature out of it - with Flash and one-sided.

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    The X spell is good lol idk what you are smoking

    1 mana kill 1 or 0 mana permanent (Vial, Carpet, Delver, etc)
    2 mana kill 2 mana permanent (goyf, library, chalice on 1)
    3 mana kill 3 mana permanent (klothys, teferi/narset, equipment / moon / choke etc)

    X mechanic with converge means it plays around thalia well

    It's still a 1-for-1 that joins Plow in the "combo doesn't care" category
    Ok so all these cards:
    Vanishing Verse
    Vindicate
    Wear/Tear
    Disenchant
    Rip Apart
    Council's Judgment
    Unexpectedly Absent
    Abrade
    Abrupt Decay

    Aren't playable either? Got it

    STP kills Griselbrand for 1 mana, how much does this one take to do that? 4 mana of different colors to kill a Jace TMS? In a format with Abrupt Decay, Red Elemental Blast, Vindicate, whatever, and you seriously think this is playable. Ah spoiler season. Show me what deck wants this and what cards get cut. What card does U/W Miracles cut for this? What card does Strawberry shortcake cut? Death and taxes? Maybe they all start playing 4 colors because of how powerful this card is? Right. I will look forward when this card disappears and everyone acts like they always knew it was garbage. Council's Judgement is better then this 10 out of 10 times. Want to hit a vial? Decay cant be countered. Kill a Jace? REB is 1 mana. It's on you to prove why this card is better or at least on par with those. Your whole argument is, this kills stuff, these other things kill stuff, so this is great! The fact you listed a bunch of cards that " kill stuff" and dont see why those cards are different and why this card is subpar to other options is silly.

    I said I was sold earlier.

    I stand corrected, it was definitely missing something.
