Creature — Lhurgoyf
Tarmogoyf's power is equal to the number of card types among cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1. (The card types are artifact, creature, enchantment, instant, land, phenomenon, plane, planeswalker, scheme, sorcery, tribal, and vanguard.)

1) it makes Snapcaster Mage a pretty dead card
2) it turns off the Delve mechanic
3) it turns off Tarmogoyf
5) enchantments are much harder to get rid of than artifacts
6) it turns off the UR Gifts Ungiven Storm deck (quite good)
7) it turns off Bridge from Below
8) etc, etc, etc

TheSimikBOat: most of the things that Bloodbraid Elf cascades into are still cmc 2 or less, with the only 3 cmc card i can think of being Kolaghan's Command . so the cmc of the cards it can cascade into won't play much of a factor. i agree Shardless Agent is fine, but for different reasons. i think the fact it requires blue is what hinders it the most. i feel most people who play blue do it for either counter spells or cantrips, and cascading into a counterspell would be pretty bad. but it can still cascade into Death's Shadow , Assassin's Trophy , or Tarmogoyf just like the Bloodbraid Elf . it might be just the boost sultai midrange needs, which im honestly surprised isn't a deck already.

According to Rudy on Alpha Investments, Modern Horizons is looking to sell packs between $6 - $10 and booster boxes for around $250. If this is true, I would expect to see some premium valued cards in the set as reprints.
I know we just got Tarmogoyf , Liliana of the Veil , Jace, the Mind Sculptor , and Karn Liberated relatively recently, as well as Snapcaster Mage and a few other staples... So this makes me wonder, are we going to see a second wave of reprints to drive prices down even more, perhaps with new artwork?
I mean, at $6 - $10 a pack, there has to be some driving force behind it. I wonder if this set will be a full 36 packs or 24 like the Masters sets?

While going through my collection I came across the quirky/niche card Misthollow Griffin ; and wondered "What could be done with this guy?"
A few other "cast from exile" creatures I know about from the hip that have been printed more recently than Misthollow Griffin are Squee, the Immortal and Eternal Scourge . The 3/3 Flyer and the 3/3 and 2/1 bodies dont exactly seem like impressive win conditions on their own but with the power of recursion and late game value with tools like Moorland Haunt ; in the right shell could these creatures be put into a deck that was more than just a theme/gimmick brew?
My thoughts about it... Show
Usually when I brew around cards i dont normally see/use I start with checking out the card discussions on Gatherer and go from there. A a few pieces of tech that could be enablers as well as plausibly being effective against other decks that caught my attention were Relic of Progenitus & Rest in Peace .
I think mainboarding things like these could both enable/exile creatures like the Misthollow Griffin as well as hurt a variety of opposing graveyard strategies by reducing Delve fuel for staving off Gurmag Angler / Logic Knot ... shrinking Tarmogoyf / Grim Flayer / Enigma Drake and taking away flashback value from Snapcaster Mage .
What kind of shell/colors would you use and what do you think some other good cards to hold the deck together could be?

jld592: i like pridemate its a huge threat with Tarmogoyf esque feels. But its also vulnerable to Searing Blaze and any firm of removal as it enters. Everythig else has protection or takes 2 burn spells to kill.

Even there, that is not true. Without putting much thought into it, I can tell you Path to Exile will not interact in the same way with Slippery Bogle , Eternal Scourge , Phantasmal Bear , or Tarmogoyf ... the point is t that it’s almost always the same. It’s that there are 12,000 cards and millions, even billions of possible interactions that need to be checked.
And even at 1%, even at 0.5%, the scale difference between standard and modern remains unchanged. How many hours do you think it took them to make arena as is?

hungry000 Interesting points. Thing in the Ice Flip is definitely a problem for this deck. Trickbind ing Thing only stalls to their next instant or sorcery and and Trickbind ing Phoenix only works on 1 Phoenix at a time. But being able to stall like that is a real tempo swing. Post-board my Rest in Peace is nice, but not enough.
I don't think either Trickbind or Squelch is where I want to be in this meta. UW Control is very low in metagame share. Tron is lower than before and I have other ways to fight them. I've been toying with the idea of Mishra's Bauble . Pumping Tarmogoyf to 5/6 vs Gurmag Angler or Lightning Axe is nice. It's also a way to 'scry' for Delver of Secrets Flip. I'll try swapping out Squelch and see what happens.
Thanks for the comment!
