  1. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I have been out of the game too long to address most of the other stuff very well, but I agree with this. Ophidian has the advantage of only needing one colored mana AND the advantage of being blue. I remember it being so good because I could counter my opponent's first spell or two with cheap counters, drop this and protect myself with Force of Will, then use the card advantage to maintain control over the game. Forbid was especially nice with this (and Thawing Glaciers helped too). It was also cool in blue/black decks, but Thieving Magpie's evasion would have been more than worth the extra mana if that extra mana hadn't been colored. This new Viper will likely have the same problem the Magpie had in this respect.
  2. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Putting it into play would be way too nasty..

    I do like the fact that Proper Burial was in Dissension; now there's a nice card to combo with Recover.
  3. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Wow! This one really sucks! :)

    come on....a dinosaur? in a bloody ice age?

    oh wait...its a magic dinosaur!

    @limited: then lets build deck with it!

    Youre joking, right? 0-cost to clear the board is AMAZING

    Anytime you're about to die but Sunscour saves you because you can cast it for 0 then spend your 5 mana laying a big fat angry man and go on to the win the game. If ANY card is worth paying 3 cards to play then it's a Wrath that kills 5 of their cards (for example).

    Also good with Dovescape. I'd expect to see 4 of this in almost any Dovescape UW deck.
  6. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Dovescape? You'd really use three cards to make six tokens?

    The only thing I think might happen, is people combining it with Loxodon Hierarch to wipe the table but keep their own stuff.. but its very narrow.

    Whaaat? No Swampwalk? No 'DINOSAUR' creature type?

    What a ripoff!!!

    Seven mana for an 8/8, or severe card disadvantage for a terror target.

    oh. cute. or something.

    not that cute, really. Kinda... lame.

    I agree with Gizmo. Regardless of the regeneration flaw, 0-mana to potentially wipe the board clean will see a lot of play.What other "WoG"-type cards are in standard right now?

    As you may or may not have gathered from the A. Rider thread, the token card won't be the pre-release card. But, it will still be given out to every participant.

    On one hand they brought back the * p/t thing... On the other hand it's a sad mana cruncher with that sadistic alternative casting cost...

    okay, so that's just sad.
  13. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    7 tokens, while leaving AAAAAAAAAAAALL my mana untapped to do anything I want with it? Yes, that's worth 3 cards, particularly if I'm playing Skyscribing.
  14. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Wow! It costs seven to cast normally? Its even worse than I thought ..

    I kinda see your point of Skyscribbing + Dovescape + Sunscour.. but that still pretty narrow. I think it'll be expensive in the beginning but'll drop of to bargain rare pretty fast.

    Gizmo - 1
    "Tha man" - 0

    Still, in a draft, might be a handy game winner. Thinking that I might try to steer towards green as a major draft consideration at the pre-release. Still debating the other color(s).

    To be honest it's just Dovescape + Sunscour, there's a ton of synergy between those cards. I'm not saying it's a worldbeater - but I wouldnt rule it out of being a worldbeater either... Dovescape is a card who's time in the tournament limelight will come, and the whole 'get to 6 mana, generate 7 tokens, and counter all your attempts to remove them' sounds like a strong turn to me.

    Snatched this card while logging onto MTGO today (been a while for me). Once again, went to for a link for a pic of the card.

    Garza Zol, Plague Queen
    Legendary Creature - Vampire
    Flying, haste
    Whenever a creature dealt damage by Garza Zol, Plague Queen this turn is put into a graveyard, put a +1/+1 counter on Garza Zol.
    Whenever Garza Zol deals combat damage to a player, you may draw a card.

    Holy card-drawing Sengir, Batman!

    Again we take a trip in our way back when machine and peruse a set called Legends...
