Cutting dead cards like Saheeli would be a good start.

So, who is going to end up being right on Paradoxical Outcome, me or Kevin? 🙂

Who has which opinions?

I think it's gonna see a lot of play at least in the upcoming months. It's very good and I think I was the first to say that this will get restricted. I must admit that I'm not so sure about that now. The builds does seem to have a lot of weaknesses.

On another note. I'll now predict that Kambal, Consul of Allocation will turn out to be the best card from this set. The card is bananas.

I don't think that Liliana is very good if you expect a lot of Pyromancer/Mentor. It's probably decent against Eldrazi and the likes, but Daretti is better.

I will say, I do reserve the right to change my mind about this probably restrictable card. LOLOLOL.

You got some pretty nasty plays out of it on Cockatrice! That was epic.

Sorry, I know this isn't the right place discuss this, but what Cockatrice server do you guys use? I'm brand new at it.

So after playing it significantly in testing over the past couple weeks, I'm convinced this card is just insanely good. I would put even money on it appearing in both the vintage and legacy top 8s this year.

In what kind of shell have you had succes with it?

@JuzamJim Are you referring to a Turn 1/2 Probe, or any Probe cast at any point of the game? I'd venture that Turn 1/2 Probes are Misstep-ed far more often than not. Of course, context is everything, but sometimes Missteps are more valuable to protect your creatures from Bolt/Plow or to avoid Recall blow-outs, etc. Doesn't mean the card is any less oppressive. Brainstorm and Ponder are restricted and they certainly aren't worthy of misstep all the time.

In my experience turn 1/2 Probes are rarely Misstepped as well (unless the opponent has two Missteps in hand), but I can see that our experiences differ on this matter. I don't think that Probe is the problem. It's a fair card in it self. The problem is Mentor. Pyromancer is good but fair. Mentor is just rediculous and should never have been printed.
