@thewhitedragon69 said in Berserk Shadow:

4x phyrexian unlife/4x angel's grace? Both of those cards are naturally amazeballs vs tendrils decks, so you get a nice bonus there.

angel's grace is pretty bad against tendrils- the life loss still happens, they move to cleanup step and you die.

also generally using plunge or spoils of the vault in combination with grace requires that you be digging for the berserk effect, as you're all in on winning that turn and barring haste-giver need to have the shadow already in play.

@serracollector it doesn't need cavern to be uncounterable, but if you are playing 5c humans your manabase has caverns and unclaimed territory that either are set to elf/shaman or set to human. setting one on elf to cast this and having that land function as a colorless source for the rest of the game is a big cost; to the best of my knowledge humans typically play 8 cavern/territory, power, and mana confluence as its initial mana sources, the only non-human creatures being spirit guides or revokers, the latter castable off off-type caverns. playing a fetch/dual/DRS manabase is certainly a good way to play magic but it's going to be a very different deck than 4/5C humans, which is the context in which i replied.

@brass-man casting ephemerate off this trigger is pretty bad, as rebound only happens when you cast something from your hand

@protoaddict said in Predictions for Jump/Start:

I imagine each deck would have to have at least 1 new card because people would get annoyed buying product that was all reprint garbage.

there are 37 new cards and 46 themes, so this will likely require some overlap with some new cards showing up in multiple decks.

if cards from it have eternal relevance I would expect tribal cards of some kind; an elf or goblin that fits in somewhat with the existing legacy decks. aside from that, i'd say the usual warning signs that wotc can't got a set without ignoring are the thing to check: cards that mess with the basic mana system of the game(free spells, cost reduction, rituals), cards that generate substantial card advantage for 3 or less mana, cards that are good with such enablers(reanimate/tinker targets), and cards whose effect has no clear precedent and is therefore likely to have not been costed properly in design.

i think courser is still just better with fastbond due to negating the damage if one wants this effect.

@vaughnbros Smiting Helix. cauldron familiar, if you've got enough of them and enough food(this will matter in standard). gnaw to the bone. 3x firemane angel.
oh, and Uro. they really just didn't care what was in standard when they printed this card, did they?

this card is triggered by creeping chill. likely much better in modern where the ability can be activated than here, but it is a 3/1 that comes back from the graveyard for 0 mana.

@evouga said in Conspicuous Snoop:

You can win for RRR by stacking Snoop, Prospector, Kiki-Jiki, Fanatic.

you need a card in the stack between snoop and kiki to give snoop haste. this takes 1 more mana.

You could try using countermeasures like Xantid Swarm but the deck is starting to look very fun but very casual.

i would expect 4x cavern of souls.
