Finally, we get a crop of spoiled cards that are (mostly) more exciting than the "meh" sort of cards we've looked at so far. Still, though, the most exciting things spoiled to date are still Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves.
The problem is that he gives your opponents' creatures doublestrike as well. On the other hand, if you put him in the right deck and choose the right time to cast him, you will probably be in good shape.
I really like how this guy interacts with Urabrask the Hidden. Sticking both will be hard, but it will win you games if you pull it off.
But then the draw ability! OMG! Those of you who know me already know this, but... I am a whore from card draw. Drawing cards is my favorite thing to do in Magic, hands down.
So, yeah. Mimeoplasm is fantastic, but I think Damia is my new favorite general ever.
I am picturing this guy in two decks: First, in a R/G deck with that Avatar of Doublestrike above. Second, in Rafiq. The gist, in case you didn't pick up on it, is that I really want to give this guy doublestrike!
On the flip side, this guy sort of gives precedent for demanding that your opponent does NOT use a die-roll or whatever... because you can now make the argument that you can only do so when a card specifically requires you to. Much like how you cannot legally shuffle your deck unless a rule or card text specifically allows or requires it.
So from now on, I think we can consider randomly deciding your attacks is an illegal action unless you are playing this guy.
That said, my friend's Intet the Dreamer deck, which has always been hard-up for good removal, will love most of these Auras - she won't need removal if the scariest stuff on the board simply can't attack her!
