    The ultimate might be him still being a little crazy.

    Elves is a classic deck that is played a lot, when it is possible.

    What do you mean "when possible"? Against certain match-ups?

    I meant if the cards are there to pull it off. Elves will lose against board wipes, but after that you can pretty much swarm anyone.

    Ah, gotcha. That's an obvious downside to the deck, but when you're facing someone that doesn't have much -- if any -- board wipes, it appears to be a very strong deck.

    What decks do y'all enjoy playing? Preferably explaining what they do, etc, as I'm new and don't know all the fancy terms yet. :P

    I prefer control decks what with the killing of creatures through various means, countering spells, playing very large creatures, and overall just messing with my opponent.

    Sorin is cool, but Bloodline Keeper ruined me on "put a 2/2 flying vampire into play". Also note that his +1 lasts until YOUR NEXT TURN, so it persists during your opponent's combat.

    Morph isn't really worth it without a special effect.

    Of the new abilities, Raid looks to be the most fun.

    I missed the "until your next turn" bit, but still thought this Sorin was pretty good.

    Also I didn't expect Sorin to show up, but with Ugin either being from Tarkir or having something to do with the plane then it makes sense.

    Morph isn't really worth it without a special effect.
    That is both true and not true. Morph having a cheaper cost than the normal CMC allows the creature to be played sooner, if you had nothing to do on turn 2 or 3 (depending on mana ramp). Morph has had issues with cost to effect problems, so we will definitely need to see if they have learned their lessons from Time Spiral and Onslaught.

    Of the new abilities, Raid looks to be the most fun.
    I am think Outlast and Delve have the highest possibility of something being the most broken.







    Looks like Nicol Bolas is going to be in the next set.

    Liking the look of the new set so far. I wasn't a big fan of Theros tbh.

    Spoilers for today. I like the copy spell, only because if you cast it early your opponent may forget about it. At the very least the board wipe isn't bad for 5 mana. Also Naga being a creature type is interesting.

    I forgot Delve was in there. I like Delve, but the particular creature showing it seems really overcosted, even with the opportunity to make it cheap.

    I am sure they are going to be cautious about Delve as being able to make something free has always been an issue.






    Khans Trailer also showed up.

    That's not Bolas, it's quite possibly Ugin however.

    Seems odd that it has Morph. I get that you can have it a turn earlier (if you sink 8 mana into it instead of 6), but why risk your win condition getting killed off as a 2/2.

    Decent enchantment is pretty decent.

    Depends on the deck you are going against to use the morph, but I will agree you won't be using it all of the time. Honestly since you are clearly playing green you are going to be playing this on turn 4 anyways, possibly as a follow up of Prophet of Kruphix or Polukranos.

    Yeah the links are broken on MTGS for some reason. For reference the two cards are See the Unwritten and Abzan Ascendancy.





    We have a new card.
