Archfiend of Depravity
This seems pretty good in Standard, although this may not be the best curve-topper in its colors. This seems really good in a small number of EDH decks. This is really hard to evaluate because there are two scenarios and one of them happens a lot more than the other.
- This goes nuts in Standard, possibly after Theros block rotates, and goes to like $10
- This goes to $1 then goes to about $3 over the next two years because of modest EDH and casual demand
I worry that this is better at killing Elvish Mystic than it is at killing Siege Rhino and that our opponents can do a lot of work with 2 creatures. Still, with the effect being asymmetrical this could put you way ahead. We’ve been burned by black fliers that are better on paper than in practice (Master of the Feast anyone?) so I’m cautious, but this seems powerful and this is going to annihilate a lot of creatures in EDH.
