    Well, there's some Lorwyn cards that make for amusing casual combos with that. (Shields of Velis Vel, Mirror Entity, etc)

    It's been pointed out that this becomes silly with anything that makes a lot of tokens on ETB, say Avenger of Zendikar or Master of Waves.

    It's like a weird essence scatter!

    I dread having my commanders hit with this.

    Sitting there with that card foretold is a pretty fantastic threat against like mono green stompy or whatever. Pairs really well with Birth of Meletis.

    5 is pricey for a lord in those colors but recursion like that. Try to mill or discard him I guess.

    Dumb question, but would "snow zombies" get +2/+2 with that wording?

    no

    it would need to be two separate effects

    Historic Zombies have another lord effect. Going Dimir gives a way to interact with artifact/enchantment graveyard hate.

    Eh, essence scatter is a near strict improvement as a card to deal with stompy threats.

    True, but it'll give me the excuse to play Da Scarab Gawd.

    I like the flexibility that it can both function as an answer (that works against uncounterable and hexproof creatures, notably) and as a combo piece/clone effect

    Running 4x of the new UB snow dual would probably be pretty painless, especially in fetching formats.

    There are a lot of wizard tribal effects from between this set and the last one.

    That is a spicy legend, and a lot of potential card draw. I'm comfortable calling it very good, I think?

    This is a wildly complicated set. I feel like the number of cards that have never-before-seen rules phrasing is through the roof.

    Yeah this is the second shout-out to "excess damage" in the set. Turning Super-Duper Death Ray into Flame Spill must've inspired sonebody.

    It is looking likely that this is gonna be the most broken set since Eldraine.

    III: Angels you control gain double strike until the end of turn.

    and since most Angels have vigilance in this set, they probably can smite you a bit before smiting your creatures on phase II.

    Yeah, I had a similar thought. Angel isnt really a type with tribal support but it doesnt matter.

    White hatebear.

    Front: 2W Legendary Creature - God. Flying, Vigilance. Snow lands opponent's control ETB tapped. Noncreature spells opponents cast with CMC 4 or greater cost (2) more to cast. 2/3.

    Back: 3W Legendary Artifact. If a source an opponent controls would deal damage to you or a permanent you control, prevent 1 of that damage. Whenever you or another permanent you control is targeted by a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless they pay (1).

    On the one hand, this does something against basically any conceivable deck in existence except midrange big boys. On the other hand, it seems a little pricey for any of the effects, especially since the backside is a somewhat upgraded Amulet of Safekeeping for 1W more mana.
