Quote from Pokken »Oh, I picked up an as foretold to test out, I think it'd be spectacular in your flash heavy build.
Edit: and one more thing to think about. Thalia's Lancers will be able to get your planeswalkers in a few weeks. Cards that can tutor for wraths are really good in UW (and rare). Pretty much the only reason I play trophy mage for the most part.
Quote from Pokken »Now that lancers can tutor for Elspeth I think it's pretty crazy not to play it, slow or not.
Don't forget the legendary lands it can get. I would say I get Nykthos or Academy Ruins with it the most often since these are low key power plays. And it can get Search as well
Cloudblazer is *significantly worse* than "Search for a wrath, a powerful piece of equipment, kor haven, venser, teferi, or search for azcanta." No question, not even in the same ballpark power level wise.
Quote from WizardMN »I can agree with Teferi and even when suggesting it, I was thinking whether it would just turn into the next Jace. That is, cast him, tick him up, and then do nothing to protect him because it isn't worth it. Perhaps he is a bit of a trap in that sense and isn't worth trying to slot in.
On a side note here (since you mentioned Venser) I too was actually considering whether I wanted to keep him. He paints a huge target on himself/me and I am not sure if it ends up being worth it. I actually landed on keeping him because his +1 is relevant. I didn't consider his Ultimate as much as I rarely get it off. Someone is usually able to keep him off the necessary counters.
Settle just gives me another Instant way to deal with an alpha strike. I would be lying if I said I never got into a scenario where I wanted it, but maybe there are better options due to the ramp issue you mentioned. What are your thoughts on Evacuation as an Instant timing "wrath"?
I think Momentary Blink does represent a way to re-use things as a bit of a trick if needed (and not telegraphed like Displacer). What other cards would be better than Blink (that I am not already running)?
I am going to proxy up the Spellseeker and Toothy while I wait for mine to come in the mail. Luckily, I already had Reveillark. I will try to play this tomorrow to see how well some of the new cards play.
