i dig this card too, is in my stable of “stuff that i like but doesn’t quite work right now” just waiting for me to support crats again?
I like it because it’s cheap, free sacrifice and needs some build around, but the payoff is nice! It rewards you differently than most aristocrat cards which helps diversify play patterns.
Honestly, it depends on how long the games are. I like monument, but I think Skyfisher has more utility in formats in shorter games. However, Skyfisher needs a pretty robust synergy package to be great, I don't think it's an ideal card if players are bouncing vanilla creatures or lands to their hand every time they cast it. Likewise, if Monument is making 5 or more warriors every game by itself, it may be the preferable pick.
My cube can't handle the combo, but I like both. Is Monument more cute than good? I know that Skyfisher tends to get the nod.
oh I meant for Art.Show me some good Magic Reddit sections?
Toggo is definitely more whimsical in my book, but I've always had doubts about his power level because no one else will ever play him. Getting a free Breath of Fire on every land feels like it's great when you're ahead or at parity, but incredibly mediocre when behind. I guess he's good flood insurance.
Gut, on the other hand, has been reportedly very strong. How has he been for you?
Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to hear.
That's the problem, I wish that these two could somehow split their power difference. I think the answer is that neither is going to hang with the rest of my cube from a power level standpoint.Rock requires the creature to tap in order to be sacrificed which is kind of a big deal relative to the situation.
