    I don't think UWx control is gonna run Deicide when they have Detention Sphere.

    Don't they already run Revoke Existance? At least out of the board? Given the fact that there aren't many artifacts of note running around (except Pithing Needle), isn't Deicide better in the current environment?

    Edit: I mean... they run Revoke in the mirror for opposing DSpheres, right? You replace that with Deicide and now your sideboard card for the mirror is also nasty against MonoU and any new God decks that pop up (like the much ballyhooed Atheos Humans)

    Brave the elements or renounce the guilds would help there. The idea is that before they draw their two of you would get value out of your four of. Always assuming that they have their silver bullet waiting just makes games seem impossible.

    Duh! sorry, man.

    I kind of forgot we were in white here and could protect Athreos. My mind dumb monkey brain was stuck in B/U.

    It always struck me as weird that Athena took issue with Arachne being "Zeus is a rapist yo"

    Since Athena was all GRRL POWER and was a virgin

    athena repeatedly had issues with punishing rape victims, probably given she was a reflection of the ideals of the time

    much of the "grrl power" she has are things we ascribed to her later

    To the battlefield is pretty nice. It's a decent backup if your Atheros goes down.

    in a world in which creatures can only manage a 90 degree rotation, tony hawk is fuckin mythological

    only the brave skaters of kamigawa even attempt the fearsome 180

    I'm thinking that hydras as a deck could have some real power.
    My post-JNX plan for G/B hydras:
    Creatures
    4x Courser of Kruphix
    4x Elvish Mystic
    4x Kalonian Hydra
    4x Mistcutter Hydra
    4x Overgrown Tomb
    3x Polukranos, World Eater
    4x Sylvan Caryatid
    Spells
    3x Abrupt Decay
    2x Bow of Nylea
    2x Garruk, Caller of Beasts
    2x Putrefy
    2x Underworld Connections
    2x Whip of Erebos
    Lands
    7x Forest
    2x Mana Confluence
    2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
    5x Swamp
    4x Temple of Malady

    Sideboard
    4x Duress
    4x Golgari Charm
    2x Putrefy
    1x Abrupt Decay
    2x Setessan Tactics
    2x Nylea, God of the Hunt

    I don't think there is much chance of a heroic deck that doesn't play strings and the black heroic decks I've seen wouldn't really want this guy I think. He does seem like a potential one or two in the rogue American heroes de k which is already pretty good and also got the blue two drop everyone went crazy for earlier.

    B/W Heroic is already a deck... in Theros Block Constructed.

    Still, it's a good point of reference for evaluating cards for a post-Ravnica Standard.

    I'm always sad when spoiler season comes to an end. Plus the next season is core set. PAX Prime is so far away...

    Rules question:

    Let's say there's a DSphere on the table, removing oh say your Jace. You then cast Banishing Light on the DSphere. You get your Jace back! Yay!

    later, Opponent casts Deicide/Revoke Existance on your Light.

    DSphere comes back in play. Does it automatically reattach to Jace? Or does its Controller get to pick new targets (say an Elspeth)?

    Evolve and Undying are super unhelpful to each other.

  • Options
    KelorKelor Registered User regular
    That's the idea. If it evolves, no more undying, you just an evolving bear either way that helps your other hydras.
