Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Ghastly Conscription For this much mana, we want to be winning the game. This just doesn’t seem like a mythic to me, not when we have had this card. For 2 more mana you could have this effect. Did Rise not see play because it was prohibitively […]
Spoiler season is in full swing and this time there’s no dearth of exciting cards for Standard. Mike Lanigan goes down the line and shares his thoughts on possible applications for the new cards.
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Creature – Shaman Scout At the beginning of your upkeep, draw a card if you control the creature with the greatest toughness or tied for the greatest toughness. Toughness? Abzan cards seem to be triggering off of toughness this set, which is great in my opinion. It […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage White also has a way to bounce a manifested card they need. Not just that, this also blocks early so you don’t get swarmed by Mardu before you’re ready and serves as a Deputy of Acquittals effect, historically good in Limited. There are so many potential uses […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage This is another way to turn a manifested spell or land (OK, at 6 mana you probably don’t need a land unless it’s a splash color) that you need from a creature into what you need. It also can bounce a creature that has a “comes into […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Gross. I hate creatures that punish you for playing them on curve.
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage This is very, very solid. It has a good casting cost to power and toughness ratio and it has the ability to become indestructible, which is fabulous. But I’m especially happy to see this card because its ability doesn’t just benefit you with getting and indestructible beater […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Neutralizing Blast This has the potential to be worth some money, especially in a year or two. This seems unlikely to be reprinted; with core sets ceasing, there are fewer opportunities coming in the future. This is probably a little narrower than Flashfreeze, especially in Modern. In […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Scroll of the Masters Prowess is a pretty good ability to have. It’s not a good ability to pay 5 mana for. This isn’t quite Prowess, though, is it? It’s cumulative. Every spell you play every turn accumulates, and when you’ve played 5 or 6 spells over […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Mastery of the Unseen Here we are. A card I really don’t want to review. Why? Basically, this card is a bulk rare or a $3-$10 card and it all hinges on how good Manifesting actually is and how many decks want to take advantage. This reminds […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Solid. It’s high on the curve, but it presents the opponent with an interesting dilemma; take it on the chin or face even more beasties next attack. Anything that forces your opponent to make a Sophie’s Choice like that is fine by me. Green has a few […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage Good news, everyone! Now Pongify exiles their dude and can sometimes deprive them of a spell! This card is sick. You can use it on your own creature in a tight spot if it’s about to die and you need to keep the pressure on and you […]
Come see all our Fate Reforged spoiler coverage This, I like. The red and green versions of this concept focus on giving us enough +1/+1 counters to justify the casting costs, essentially making the top card of your library into a Hill Giant or whatever. This, though, gives you a Grey Ogre but it’s OK […]
