    Whenever Blind Arbiter enters the battlefield or attacks, draw two cards then discard a card.
    Whenever you discard a card, target creature an opponent controls gets -X/-0 until your next turn, where X is the number of different mana values between cards in your graveyard.

    There's currently no way to generate a turn 1 treasure*, but a number of 2s. Your best bet would be opening on Shambling Ghast and then eat it with Deadly Dispute.

    *In Standard. In Modern you have both Strike It Rich and Ragavan (assuming you can swing and hit on turn 2).

    Is that also going to be the new kind of graveyard threshold teased? Overall it seems pretty fair, backbreaking in limited but fair.

    I guess it's different enough from Embodiment of Agonies to be considered its own thing

    if it's a subtheme of effects that cares about having different mana values in your graveyard then that could partly explain the new-Panoramas, gives you a (somewhat clunky) way to get an MV 0 into the yard.

    7/6 but yeah. Can still be Fatal Pushed and most white removal doesn't care how big it is, but that's a real threat.

    Oh right. EACH treasure. Yeah, that's a fast beater.

    Problem is it's not evasive, has no protection, etc etc. And if you're going to go in for something like that why not just cheat a hammer?

    In standard at least it's a bonus that it dodges Vanishing Verse

    Theoretically vanishing verse's stock should go WAY down in general in the coming set though, so it likely won't be the premium removal spell anyway

    are these Casualty spells likely to revive any Magecraft creatures? I haven't seen Sedgemoor Witch in a minute.

    Sedgemoor Witch specifically seems primed to get mileage out of Cas1 spells. Not sure if any others have a shot.

    I think Sedgemoor Witch may be the only one that's going to benefit from Casualty. It's the Maestro mechanic, yes? The majority of magecraft creatures that actually saw play were white, though I tried really hard to make Dragonsguard Elite work, and there was Witherbloom Apprentice. I guess an attempt could be made at an Orzhov Magecraft using stuff like Grisly Sigil up there, but within the Grixis/Maestro colors? Basically just the witch.

    Yeah the next best in Grixis are probably Archmage Emeritus and Storm-Kiln Sorcerer, and that's asking a bit on both counts.

    Professor Onyx could get a bit of a boost, maybe. Being fed spiders from Lolth sounds good for both.

    Hmm. Rob the Archives seems interesting, but Reckless Impulse gives you longer to play the cards.

    Mage's Attendant seems kind of good for limited? Not because I expect to counter anything, but just because it's a good price for the bodies (though the token does help with multiple faction mechanics)

    1U, T: Copy target spell you control that wasn't cast. You may choose new targets for the copy.
    that's... extremely narrow. For 1UU you get an extra copy of a spell you already Casualtied, and maybe you get to use it again once or twice?

    Love a good hasty defender tho.

    It'll depend on how much casualty stuff sees play I suppose. Plays nice with counterspells since it has flash too.

    It also copies any copied spell, not just ones you've Casualtied. Combo her with the new Jin-Gitaxias, for instance.

    Sure, but if that's all the copying in your deck she probably doesn't make the cut.

    Well, obviously. But how often is that the only copying in a deck? She copies things from Isochron, that new red enchantment, Echo Mage, whatever. J-G 2.0 is one of the rare times you get to copy artifacts with her though.
