And in a move that should surprise literally no one, I'm back with the typical EDH Set Review. Since this is a core set, containing both reprints and new cards, I'll be running down just the new cards, though I may do a followup to go over some noteworthy reprints. If I feel up to it and have the time.
As always, I'll be doing this WUBRG style, kicking things off with White. It's not a racial thing, it's just how this works!
On the other hand, he is cheap so for the small investment, even if you only get one or two uses out of him, that may be worth it.
For this card, I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, though that's probably just me being a sucker for the badass art.
Holy crap this is disgustingly powerful. Yeah, she obviosly does sickening things in a token deck, but really you only need a few creatures on the battlefield to make her seem ridiculously undercosted. Unless her monetary value becomes entirely too prohibitive, this Angel should see plenty of EDH play in all kinds of decks.
Fine for like Rafiq or whatever, but pretty underwhelming by most EDH standards. Badass art, though.
Well, that's it for White. Not a lot to offer, really. One retardely overpowered Mythic, one absolutely smashing Sunforger target/counter-Wrath tech, and a few mediocre uncommons.
Next up: Blue.
