    This seems much better than four mana red variant with the terrible draw back and I’ve seen that card do some dirty things. This will likely be impactful in multiple places.

    It’s expensive but this is straight gas with Loam

    I feel like after the curse merge a lot of people just didn’t want to bother with the process and the activity around here plummeted. Sad to see ya go mtgsal

    I think this actually had a chance of enabling a more ‘fair’ As Foretold shell. The deck always lacked a wincon and 8 power is a good one.

    I’m not sure if there was a decent infinite sliver combo but there is now lol

    Edit: whoops I misread Gemhide sliver

    Unlike Finks\Redcap you need infinite mana to win with this guy but a colorless persist body with a mana sink could definitely find a home one day

    You think they really can print a 254 card set where every rare is playable in modern?

    Where did I say that?

    Okay I was really feeling like people were jumping the gun but this is basically just another Commander set. Nobody is going to cast Genesis in Modern competitively and its looking like most of the rare slots are for that or limited. Boring.

    Elvish spirit guides would take that deck to the next level, but it would still win with lightning storm. The enchantment seems much better with Loam.

    The new Slide has shown us that those hoping for more reprints could still end up satisfied with the new cards as well.

    I think the wording is odd because it almost seems like you have to make a decision to search your library, your graveyard, or both. The distinction seems unnecessary because you’re searching for one card, one time. Unless there’s a rule about not being able to search for multiple zones at the same time? The other issue is that the ‘and/or’ clause has been used frequently lately to indicate that you get both options upon resolution, even within this very cycle! While not technically flawed to say the wording isn’t confusing is just wrong.

    Right now it’s impossible to play a fair deck without banking on white/black removal. Additionally, white and black have access to the best hate cards, the best graveyard hate, and the best sideboards overall. I’d say if you’re not using some sort of hyper synergy to win (faithless looting, tron lands, valakut, burn decks, etc) then you essentially have to be in white, black, or both. Blue Moon is the perfect example of a fair deck that will always be tier two because it can’t realistically dispatch the formats threats in a timely manner and the countermagic of the format isn’t good enough to cover every angle.

    EDIT: @The Fluff, color identity is a part of the game for a reason. Players generally have a preferred association with certain colors or aspects of the color pie and want to encapsulate those in their style of play. While not everyone is like this, being able to play the colors you want competitively in every format would be a huge win for Magic overall. It’s pretty simple I think.

    The Big Pig could find its way into Breach Titan as Breach number 5 but the slot it would occupy competes with Hour of Promise/Prismatic Omen/Relic so there’s stuff competition for this flex slots

    Magic was a lot different when FTK was seeing competitive play. I think it’s generally worse than Bloodbraid Elf which doesn’t play outside of one deck. It’s hard to justify spending four mana on anything in this format, and as a person who only plays with red based removal in modern, 4 damage just ain’t doing it on turn 4. The number of matchups where FTK wouldn’t even have a target aside from your own creatures is pretty large.
