Our moxie awards this year were pretty intensely debated, but I'm really happy with the final selections 🙂

  • @Brass-Man also had a really cool BG survival deck that could very easily be made powerless. It also had very few (if any) duals.
    Moxen in that deck aren't really great, -you play Collector Ouphe which shuts them off. They also can't be tutored with survival and Elvish Spirit Guide can be.

    Does anyone have any math on this card in Dredge decks?

    In my Depths deck, I run 4x eidolon of rhetoric since the misstep restriction. When the card lands, it wins games. If I can turn 1 stick it, I usually beat PO and xerox that give my deck fits. The problem is I often only have 1 or 2 mana on turn 1, and then lose before I get a turn 2 vs something like PO. This shaves that effect's cost to 1 mana (and can't be plowed) - this is a welcome addition to my deck.

    This card is basically good in any deck that wants to build a 50-card-or-less deck (4x this, 4x wraith, 1x git probe, X cantrip). In decks that want multiple pieces or several options, I think this card is just 4 less spots for gas. Keeping a hand with this as your first or second land drop, hoping to see one in the top 5, is almost always worse than just mulling. The times you use it turn 0 and wiff on a land you wanted, it will cost you games.
