I'm quite surprised at how many Multicolor cards we got in this set. It certainly made sense to have some in the set, since we are coming off the Return to Ravnica block. Having some mechanical overlap and synergy between two sequential blocks is a smart move. Still, this is a bit more than I expected, though I'm certainly not unhappy about it.
Or, alternately, DO.
Seriously, Angel of Despair on steroids is 100% pure EDH gold. I can't wait to be That Guy and pair this off with a Deadeye Navigator. And then feel like a real prick for it, and never do it again.
To be clear, this isn't really that great of a card, but it happens to fill a hole, in that my Edric deck was in need of a good way to gain some life without diluting the creature base. This will do nicely.
Well, we're almost done with this set review, but we've got Artifacts and Lands yet to go, and for the multicolor section, we've got to do the top 5 picks as well.
5. Steam Augury
4. Daxos of Meletis
3. Psychic Intrusion
2. Ashen Rider
1. Prophet of Kruphix
Lots and lots of good stuff here! In addition to the five cards above, I'm definitely playing both Planeswalkers, Reaper of the Wilds, and a handful of other cards. I'm also really love Anax and Cymede. And while Medomai might be a bit of an antisocial card, there's no denying that he's good.
