AKH Spoiler – Samut, Voice of Dissent (M)


Holy keywords, Batman!

This card seriously has a ton of keywords, that has to be worth something. While the 5CMC slot is fairly congested, with Archangel Avacyn and Glorybringer I do think this can steal at least one slot. From testing, it always felt right to play a full 4 Glorybringer, but this has some serious consideration going forward.

Having access to Flash is not something that Green/Red have access too often. So, when a card does have this keyword it’s worth exploring at the very least as a miser copy. I’m already seeing plenty of players looking to incorporate this into various archetypes. I personally like this one by “titansfan920″ from r/spikes:

I like where this is going, and it’s a solid starting point. I do think Samut, Voice of Dissent is really strong with other Exert cards, and the synergy feels great. Samut offers fantastic flexibility and can really be used in a multitude of ways. It’s because of this, that Samut can carve out a spot in this metagame – and additional upside should there be another round of cards that are banned.

Despite being powerful, I do feel Samut isn’t a ubiquitous card – thus hindering some of it’s value. Some players will desire to acquire this early on, and if this card continues to be utilized then it’s value would reflect that. I do think waiting would be ideal, because it’s not going to outclass other 5-drops right away.

    Interesting deck, but I believe Samut’s best place in Standard is a Green White Human/Flash deck, with Heron’s Grace Champion, Cast Out and probably an Avacyn or two.

    Start out with:

    – Thalia’s Lieutenant and Metallic Mimic as Lords.
    – Channeler Initiate for ramp.
    – Thraben Inspector and Tireless Tracker for card advantage.
    – Glory-Bound Initiate and Heron’s Grace Champion for Life gain.
    – HGC, Samut, Avacyn and Cast Out as Instants/Flash.

    Arlinn Kord and Always Watching are good cards to have as well, but I doubt 4x each is a good idea.
