We’re getting a Nether Void in the mail today, so I figure that’s about the right time to proxy another Legends card.
Straight from suggestions on this very blog!
One control card for another. I errated Moat to be Tribal, though- wouldn’t want to nerf that Tarmogoyf.
This is win-win: I don’t have to see Skizzik in drafts, and Skizzik doesn’t have to listen to me complain.
We thought about this and Words of War. Opinions?
I have been so happy with this change. Darksteel Axe can’t really be more than ok, but the Lifestaff is surprisingly strong. We’ve seen it be very good in the aggro mirror, and also in control decks. This is one of those cards that is weaker in its limited environment than it is in the cube, so I’m glad we gave it a try.
Precursor Golem goes in the second-to-last artifact spot we had yet to fill. The last one is earmarked for Sword of War and Peace, but Justin wanted to try out the Golem.
Swans is my favorite U/R card ever, but it was time to swap in something more playable in U/W. Mistmeadow Witch may not be the final choice, but it’s a card I’ve been interested in trying for a while, and it fits into a deck that’s very well-liked.
We didn’t used to run any off-color kicker cards, but these days I’m more interested in running good cards than being overly concerned about white maybe-kind-of having an extra card. Unsurprisingly, this has already been very good. Legionnaire was fine, but the cost is awkward and in even in R/W, it’s harder to play.
