I recently acquired a heap load of Mercadian Masques spellshapers, and the whole ordeal got me thinking on my favorite all time utility creature. I've got to admit that I'm a sucker for a quality utility..probably a factor which goes back to my love for blue. My philosophy is, as long as my creatures "do more", then the other guys..I'll win. This of course isn't always true but hey....like I said, I'm a sucker for utility. I am currently eloping with Silverglade Pathfinder. There's definitely stronger spellshapers out there..but I'm also a sucker for land...which is a story best left for a later date. The idea of thinning my deck is a novelty which simply won't release me from it's grip. However my all time favorite is without a doubt Temporal Adept. Is there better utility out there. Undoubtedly, however when a Adept resolves without getting blasted right away your opponents instantly start plotting your demise. In a few short turns you can turn their well laid plans into a constant fumbling struggle. He's the poor man's Tradewind Rider...and that's why I love him. P.S. Who else thinks the spellshapers would have been AWESOME in the Odyssey block? Madness, Threshold, Flashback combined with spellshapers pitch abilities..ooh such chewie goodness was never meant to be I guess.
