@Water0 Yep! I just didn't mention it because it isn't the most played version of Shops right now, but this do fit in Uba Stax quite well. I just think it works better with Ravager since you can almost always activate it immediately. With Smokestack you have to wait a few turns.
EDIT: It'll also depend on what other cards produce energy counters for you to use.
Another way of looking at this 4 mana cc card is like this:
You have to sacrifice 6 permanents before this card replaces itself.
Compare it to coercive portal that draws a card each turn its in play. I'd much rather play portal.
Although I do see some synergies wth it, I don't think these are vintage synergies.
Do energy chits do things on their own? The MTG twitter had a graphic that looked like you could give up an energy to dome the opponent for 2, in which case I think people will almost always use them for that purpose
@ajfirecracker Yeah, just to clarify, Ian Duke was using that graphic to explain a baseline proof-of-concept R&D was working with when they came up with the Energy mechanic. "These are just examples, they are not necessarily exactly the things you can do with energy in the set." I was confused too, and thought it was some sort of Trading Post-like artifact/enchantment.
"a permanent you control" means it must come from the battlefield (unless i am wrong) so it won't work with baazar. In a Uba deck i would rather use Baazar + Uba do draw and dig through the library.
Much too slow a card, IMHO, to be effectively used in Vintage.
Well, I'bet this is probably the best energy generator in the set:
If energy ever becomes relevant, this is probably the card that generates all the brokeness (I don't feel it's relevant yet)
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery, get (E)(E)? I speak literally zero Italian but that's my attempt to translate the first part
