Hmph.

Bravely spoken Rosewater, considering Gruul is a rehash of Fanatic of Xenagos.

Emergency Powers is a great name for a card.

I'm unreasonably excited about the gate-garbage and want to play with it.

That sphinx is actually pretty cool. Getting a free Scry 3 at the beginning of the game could be sweet.

I also really like Emergency Powers, but a bit sad that it's limited to UWx decks, because I think the decks I'd be most likely to use it in are UR or UG.

I just thought of it as the Gruul version of Unleash...

This is going straight into my Teysa, Orzhov Scion EDH deck.

Sac 3 BW afterlife dudes to Teysa OS's ability, Exile a creature, deaths trigger 2 instances of afterlife for each, creating 6 BW spirits, and 2 instances of OSs ability, creating 6 W spirits.

Sac the new 6 BW spirits, exile 2 more creatures, triggering 12 more W spirits to come into play, sac the 18 W spirits and exile 6 more creatures.

9 creatures exiled off 3 initial creatures dying.

Add in soul sisters, and that's 24 x however many sisters you have lifegain.


Yeah, that's not stupid at all.

Huh, weird set so far. Many of the mythics feel like the typical "Intro Pack Rare", but with a slight nudge in power.

Meanwhile, the card I am so far the most giddy about is an Uncommon - Wilderness Reclamation.

In between, there are a whole lot of card that would have been super awesome back around the time of the first Ravnica block or so, but are less powerful and less exciting than things printed in the years since, and as such will often be outclassed by those better cards.

But at least Rakdos finally got an actually cool card!

The correct way to resolve Rakdos' ability is to throw all the creatures into the air and destroy the ones that land face down.

QFT, if someone doesn't let you do it, cut them out. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
