    [THS] Six Theros Previews

    Post by .Rai on Mon Aug 19, 2013 6:37 am

    http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/261


    On mobile so I can't be bothered to post images. It's the Hydra, the Legendary Boros human, the Satyr, Gruul Naturalize+, the Pegasus and The Red Aura.


    Seriously, I love Monstrosity, but it's the crappiest wording I have ever seen. It could have been worded at least two other ways that are just plain better.

    Oooh, I'm so in love with those decks. And the Heroic ability has a lot of latent potential.

    Some decent cards are there, too.

    If I hadn't found a good commander for it that wasn't mono-green, Polukranos would be the commander of my Hydra deck I'm thinking of making lol

    Dirty in the Magic sense, or dirty in a literal sense. In a Magic sense, it's probably because it's Tinder Wall but not Tinder Wall (and generally pretty old-school, yet perplexingly modern design). In a literal sense, satyrs had dirty, dirty connotations in Greek mythology. Even the flavour text and name just point to something a little...naughty.

    Regardless, I shall see it be that the satyr sees Standard play.

    The Saytir looks awesome. With BTE, Chandras Phoenix, Ash Zealot, and lot's of other cool 2 drops. RG Deck Wins should be fun Smile

    Satyr isn't an aggro card at all,it's secretly a midrange card that gets you anything from a Boros Reckoner to a Kalonian Hydra turn 3.

    I honestly just don't feel like it's even a constructed card. It's just a very weird ritual with suspend and extra vulnerability.

    It's on the fringe for me. I think, given the right circumstances, it is totally capable of seeing play. A Ritual on a Goblin Piker isn't awful, although it's never going to be completely outstanding.

    But is this Satyr something that really will help Storm decks?

    Not the ones we know...but it can create new ones...more dynamic and less aoutpilot(?
    I'm dreaming too much?

    Except Storm requires a mana boost, and the Satyr would only break even if you're storming off.

    Not to mention there aren't any autopilot Storm decks, and they're all dynamic. s:
