Quote from Bearscape »I was 100% on the Frogtosser Banneret train at the start but I'm now convinced the card is too weak. The acceleration is great, but individually it is rarely worth a card, needing multiple Ringleaders to be worth the investment.
Quote from MagicYio »And to answer the last part of your response: the purpose of Piledriver is to race your opponent.
Quote from Ace1 »Another little detail about the fetchlands, if we are to play artificer's assistant shuffling our deck is a small disadvantage. Whenever we scry a card to the bottom, we never see the card again. With fetchlands we negate all the scrying our bird provides. Not a huge deal, and if our opponent uses path to exile and/or field of ruin/ghost quarter etc, this doesn't matter, but still it is a small advantage of fetchless mono blue to add to the list and be aware of.
Quote from Ace1 »I'd love to have more details on your testing. What list did you use? How many games did you play? against what decks? How many games did you win/lost?
