    Some of the individual cards are already on pre-sale on Ebay, going from $200 for Liliana, the Last Hope and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria to $50+ for Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast.
    Whether those prices are sellable is another story, and if the supply of these is high they most certainly will go down in price.
    Seems like another fiasco in the making. How soon before Starcity games wants their allotment, or MTGGoldfish, or...? Then it will trickle down to LGS level.
    What a mess.

    Dimir all the way for the first PR. Golgari seems again a miss, and maybe Boros or Selesnya for the second PR.


    This...my friend and I are going 2HG Dimir/Dimir and going from there. Surveil doesn't need any backup, the pro-Surveil cards are so good and we might get Entrata to just randomly win games for us. I wanted to go Selesnya but there's virtually nothing at common to make tokens, so that's how we're rolling. UB should do fine for removal, a little draw, a little win.

    A lot of you are getting the #shenanigans that will happen with this. The hand clause isn't crippling since you can be at Hellbent to kick off the festivities.
    Fun, fun, fun till your Grenzo takes your Frenzy away.

    Sweet design! And use with Enchanter's Bane in CMDR as an alternate way to blow it up. Grin

    PRetty good series of abilities here, he can survive combat thanks to First Strike, mentors, lives through damage sweepers and looks amazing in that flashy, gaudy armor. More art like this, much much more please.

    Just Teferi's Veil friends, she stops existing after she does her assassination, then she's a fresh object on your next turn.
    This is how I'd be doing it if I wasn't going to build my Jugan, the Rising Star silliness.

    I like this. It deals with those annoying Arcades decks and most imposing critters have 4+ toughness anyway, so it's a 60% sweeper for the rest of the rabble.
    Thank you, Wizards! Grin

    Punisher cards are fun, and you might be able to use this to whip your dinosaurs.
    Probably narrow for a Standard deck to use more than 1 or 2 though, even then...

    Damn, I can keep blinking Disinformation Campaign with Aminatou and drawing while making them discard.
    (Think Boros will end up being good in Limmited too, looks like UB Surveil, Boros Mentor and some form of Selesnya token shenanigans.)

    So in a 2HG game, this does 6 and gain 3? Seems like that could be a blowout if you get multiples.
    Good payoff for Surveil and Standard has Gaea's blessing now, so "mill Creeping Chill, Creeping Chill, Blessing trigger, Chill trigger, reshuffle" could be really annoying for someone, haha.

    >Shows a sword

    I'm sorry, what?

    Aside from that, the card looks nice. Gives incentive to play Gates even if you're not in GU Gates.

    That's... not a glaive, though. A glaive is a polearm, not a sword.


    This. It's not a glaive at all, and I can't believe a bunch of dudes that play D&D like Trick or others never pointed this out.
    Card is nuts though, going to end some lives in Limited, geez.

    There's no reason they can't combine white's "fun police" strategy and red's "punisher" philosophy by making some sort of critter or enchantment that does both, by maybe either taxing or damaging a certain aspect of the game. Just doing small, durdly things in combat is great for limited, but would be nice to see some more grandiose or overwrought stuff once in a while.

    Hell, they could makea stone rain variant that only hits nonbasics and healing salves you or makes you gain 2 life for 2RW or something, or just reprint Powerstone Minefield...or Goblin Trenches. I dunno, those cards are probably too much these days. Slant

    Well, that demon is quite the guest to your party. One hand in the chips, one hand in the booze/pop/juice, one hand on the TV remote, one hand up...
    Seriously though, I love it. My Aminatou deck really wants these Surveil options to set up reanimation and recursion, and the body is dear lord, that's a lot of P/T for 5 mana and the trample is a huge bonus. The little defender dude is a fine speed bump. Loving what Dimir is getting right now.

    Yep this is good. Hilariously, we have a casual EDH player in our group that loves Lazav and he'll definitely also want a copy. Putting my copy into Aminatou.

    your enemy has a 5/5 and you have a 1/1 you can then swap their power and toughness so you have a 5/5 and they have the 1/1 ?


    No, it does nothing with identical p/t. Say your had a Giant Spider (2/4) and a Blinding Angel (also 2/4), you could make them both 4/2 until end of turn. Or you can switch one of your creatures p/t and one of theirs. It's a very deep combat trick that is going to cause some headaches, looks like. The creatures do not swap toughness with another, just their own numbers get mishmashed.
