"Is this card good with Polluted Delta" is a fine heuristic to employ when evaluating cards 'tis true.

Oh no, Ajani got a new pridemate!
the combo with ballista is instant kill, and it only requires 4 mana, and the bigger the ballista the harder is to stop it( if it has two counters, you can time it and kill the ballista in response when the first counter is removed).

Eldrazi Tron was largely invalidated by Oko. I'd expect Tron decks to have a bit more variety now.
pretty sure she was talking about pioneer, talking about dig through time and treasure cruise

Picked up a playset of Yawgmoth for $12 a pop. He's $20 this morning and climbing.

I'm still shocked that dig and tcruise are not banned yet or even seem particularly degenerate.

Also shocked that certain staples like Siege Rhino or Reality Smasher are nowhere in the format.
Lack of Fetchlands are the major cause of that combined with a lack of 0/1 mana cantrips and removal really make delve cards fair.

At the same time Siege Rhino is suffers from a lack of color fixing and devotion strategies being powerful. Reality Smasher just costs 5

Heliod or Ballista will be nearly immediately banned in Pioneer, so don't go rushing out buying shit on launch.

It's really a shame because Ballista will be the one that eats the ban messing with other decks.

Copycat got a ban in pioneer and was a turn faster and more consistent but wotc hates combo so who knows.

FFG does that in their games. It generally ends up working the same as a ban, but with more fiddly bullshit to remember

Yea that will never be an official ban. The closest they ever got was that shitty modern event deck that stoneforge in it that was legal to play if it was only in the original configuration it came with, and even that was stupid.

Heliod combo is a single color and can be worked in to almost any deck. There is 0 chance that sticks around.

I'm thinking its going to slot in a collected company shell so G/W

it also required a single white just like Copycat so it would probably be a 4 color pile.

Swap Guardian with Ballista, Saheeli with Heliod and uh Oko with....i dunno Idyllic tutor or something.

Boom Decks done.

Company hitting ballista is pretty bad so I doubt it's a company deck.

I suspect you could run it mono-white devotion style with a ton of Chad's, silkwrap type cards, wrath etc.

Trying to decide how many Collectors boxes I open for cracking. I did 3 of the Eldraine and came out + 100 USD. (thx Full art Foil Brazen x2)

Traded everything in to a store + some other cards and picked up a Mox Sapphire.

Go into the Magic hall of fame with your shittier opinions and skills.
It's a limited rating. If you cast it in sealed/draft you end up getting like 3 lands and 2 low drops and your opponent gets a dragon that probably gets to attack you before you even get to play any of the cards or a removal spell that costs them no mana. Good luck winning that game.

At a FNM I'd totally run that shit. Small stakes big hilarity if the gods of variance are on your side that evening.
