    You really only need Blind Obedience. Crypt Ghast is nice if you're running heavy swamps, Pontiff of Blight is amusing as hell in my Alesha deck, and the rest is mostly limited chaff.

    After much delay because my post office sucks I finally got my preordered box of Ultimate Masters.

    Cons: I only opened two mythics (Leovold, Vengevine), and my foil rares were all around $10. Not an awful box but nowhere near some boxes I've seen.

    Pros: Cavern of Souls was my box topper.

    Prediction: Domri Rade's ult will make a boar god that is indestructible and can do a shit ton of damage, probably based on lands, when it attacks

    Extort was THE perfect Orzhov limited mechanic though. Too bad Boros was in that set...

    Multiple 2 drops with 3 power and evasion? Seems fun...

    IIRC Orzhov was a fairly close second in terms of power for Gatecrash draft

    poor Simic and Dimir, just trying to cast Stolen Identity

  • turtleantturtleant Gunpla Dad is the best.Registered User regular
    I actually went to gatcrash pre-release. The top three people were all folks who picked Dimir but then built an Orzhov deck with just enough blue to splash in that big ass Nightmare promo you got for picking Dimir.

    I picked Simic. It, uh. It didn't go well.

    So Adapt is like Monstrous. Though knowing the Simic, there will be cards that pull counters off your creatures or move them around, so then you can Adapt again to generate more counters.

    edit: in a world of Branchwalkers and Jadelight Rangers, Zegana being a 4 mana 4/4 cantrip with double upside is pretty respectable (especially since we'll be getting Breeding Pool). Turn 1 Llanowar, turn 2 Jadelight, turn 3 Zegana, draw a card, swing with 4/3 trampler? I'd experiment with that.

    I wish Adapt was worded like Runaway Steam-Kin, where it could go up to N counters if it has fewer than N counters on it.

  • VyolynceVyolynce Registered User regular
    Intetestingly, Zegana is only rare. Who's the new (mythic) leader of the Simic? Is the position of Prime Speaker an elected one?

    Well at least it's better than evolve, I guess...

    Both of those card's adapt costs seem too much to be worth it though.

    Also weird that your big creatures could technically be screwed over by someone putting 1counter on them somehow.

    Since Dominaria, I feel like the art direction/quality in general is swinging back around to being really good. The art on Torment is fantastic.

    i agree that adapt seems kind of bland at first glance but so did jump-start and it turned out to be easily my favourite mechanic in the set

    so i'm not passing judgment yet

    all the grn mechanics had the same thing, where they looked dull at first but turned out to play in interesting ways

    i'm realising as well that it does not say "any time you could play a sorcery"

  • I needed a gnome to post.I needed a gnome to post. Registered User regular
    yeah usually when you're running 5 dedicated mechanics in a set they wind up looking a little basic bitch

    Finally had some time to go through the two boxes of Ultimate Masters me and my friends went through drafting and sealed over the weekend.
    Boxtoppers:
    Stirring Wildwood (uggggh)
    Eternal Witness (noice)

    Mythics:
    Liliana!
    Cavern of Souls!
    Emrakul x2
    Mikaeus

    Notable rares:
    Ancient Tomb x2!
    Back to Basics x2!
    Demonic Tutor!
    Engineered Explosives x2 (one FOIL)
    Goryo's Vengeance x2
    Phyrexian Altar
    Phyrexian Tower x2
    Through the Breach
    Urborg

    Other neat cards:
    Double foil Foil

    Also I won the night if not in record, in spirit: I put together a durdle deck that used Buried Alive to bin a bunch of Myr Servitors, get them all back, then used Phyrexian Tower/Altar + Songs of the Damned to hard-cast muthafuckin Emrakul.

    And if that didn't work I got a bunch of mileage out of Mikaeus and some evoke cards holy SHIT is that interaction busted. Evoke Shriekmaw, kill your guy, sacrifice it, undying triggers, kill your OTHER guy and I got a 4/3 fear for two mana.

    i'm unreasonably upset that there's no french translation for Planeswalker.

    I expected something poetic like "Voyageur" or dumb like "Marcheur des plans"....
