I know you probably don’t need an introduction to this card, but if you do I can sum it up simply:
Seriously, everyone seems to love Squirrels. And Squirrel tokens. And Squirrel Nests. It’s a combo with Earthcraft to make all the Squirrels, and it’s a combo that sees some casual and Commander play. The Nest sees no competitive play (mostly due to Earthcraft being banned), but it’s still a well-remember and well-loved card. I can’t wait for a chance to play with it since I wasn’t around the first time.
As for how this fits into Conspiracy? I’ve got nothing for you. But hey, that’s not going to stop me from enjoying it!
