    Yeah, this card seems really good in the right deck. I think the scariest thing about it is that it self protects. What, you say you run Disenchant to deal with Artifacts and Enchantments. Well, isn't that nice for you...two birds...

    Wow.... Now that is a True Swords to Plowshares.... too bad the doves aren't what they should be.... 0/1.... Takes a huge bite out of most decks.... Start seeing some Clloudchaser eagles and elvish.... (shoot which damn elf kills enchantments - I can't recall)...
  3. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Elvish Lyrist

    Or Cloudchaser Eagle (or the other card that's differently named but does the same thing)
  5. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    (or just a Angel of Despair? Or Absolver Thrull?)

    Imagine the combo of Dovescape and Engineered Plague.

    Or..... You could go with Alternate CC stuff - like Force of Will... lose 1 life to make 5 birds... You could play with a Goblin Welder (? the one who swaps artifacts out of your library or gy into play) and Coat.... get a lot of doves - kill your enemies, then overwhelm 'em....

    The only thing I don't like about those new CC (where you can use X or Y) is that you can use them in a mono-colored deck when the intent is clearly to mix two colors...
  8. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    When they first talked about Hybrid mana, they said it was designed so that the card could be considered to be either color.

    So Centaur Safeguard (a 3/1 creature which gives you three life when it is put into the graveyard) could have been printed as a white creature but also as a green creature. I think Debtor's Knell is a good example of this..

    But this card is just Blue. Countering spells is blue, Birds are white/blue.. this is definitely a multicolor card, not a hybrid one.

    In my opinion at least.

    Dovescape huh?

    ...

    Damn... my humbling humility deck just got freaking scary.
  10. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    But don't hybrid cards count as multicolor?
  11. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    They can be. I personally don't look at them as hybrid, as I'd more than likely place these cards in mono-color decks. I'd love to play this card in an all-white deck. WOO! If only this card was around when I designed my All-White "Answer" deck!

    Hybrids may be okay for single color decks, but they're great for multicolor, especially running multicolor. Hybrid it negates the effect multiple "solid color" mana symbols have on the mana curve.

    Gotta love blue and controlling creatures. Supposedly tomorrow's preview card is gonna be awesome. We'll see.

    They count as multicolor, but I was trying to point out that they were aiming for cards that could belong to either color (flavorwise) and represent an ability that both colors could have on their own.

    Debtor's Knell for instance, seems a bit more black, but White has its fair share of reanimation. Printing it as a white card would not have strange.
    Now consider Dovescape, which could be seen as a white enchantment that counters noncreature spells.

    That doesn't seem white to me...

    I guess it's the giving of Birds part, which goes to both white and blue. But I agree, Maybe there just should have been one hybrid W/U mana and the other two just as U.

    My Doubling Season/Spikes deck is loving the look of this Graft mechanic. ****in A!
