Quote from AcrimoneAbsolutely. In fact, that they would likely be cheaper because they aren't playable in sanctioned events would make them BETTER in my estimation.
I tend to view Magic Cards the way I view Monopoly sets: do I really care if they're "tournament legal"?
I also don't really get the arguments made by people who call gold-bordered cards "proxies". Gold-bordered cards don't stand in for or represent something else: they are what they are, which is a magic card with a gold border. My World Championship edition Birds of Paradise are -- get ready for it -- Birds of Paradise Magic Cards.
They're no more proxies than they are counterfeit. Which they aren't.
But to get back to the OP... heck yeah! Bring it on.
Quote from DumaThe step from 3 to 4 mana is one of the biggest in magic, especially for an agro deck. In most agressive decks it's the most difficult slot of all, since you hardly ever have room for more than one 4-off at most.
When was the last time you wanted to tap out turn 4-5 to kill off one creature?
Quote from BlackMooseHow do you side for each match up if you don't mind me asking?
Why do you use Altar's Reap? Are you sure you wouldn't rather have more removal?
How is the Skirsdag High Priest? Is it worth it?
Quote from Darkninja107It is bad, but it's soooooo Izzet!
Really, he'd be interesting to run in a R/B Burn/Control as one of the only creatures, not great, but interesting.
