Unmoored Ego is probably at the highest it'll ever be atm, even if it becomes a staple in some modern decks people are cracking so many packs of GRN for fetch lands the price of nearly every other card in the set will slowly dip down, even trophy will likely become a $10 card before next year. In fact nearly any of the $10+ cards you're not using for events you might want to trade away for cards you want to use now, and then pick them up later. Really the only safe bet to buy into in the long run is Chromatic Lantern.

Though once Unmoored Ego goes below a dollar pick up 20 or 30 of them as a small gamble, hell it might be fun to do for several of the cards.

FSims81, so spending a card and 3 mana to not impact the board and remove cards from a deck is a good thing? Glimpse the Unthinkable gives you 2.5 times more cards removed from a deck, for just 2 mana. Mill decks care about the quantity of cards removed, not the quality.

That much is true about Extraction, but how about Memoricide or Slaughter Games, which cost 1 more than Ego, but exile with no downside or even with upside.

Unmoored Ego is the same as Lost Legacy, except you can name lands and artifacts. How impactful was LL in modern in the year since it existed? Ego will have the exact same impact - there are few if any decks that rely on specific artifacts or lands (Tron, KCI and that is it).

FSims81, regardless of how many cards you remove from the hand, they draw replacements, meaning Unmoored Ego is always -1 card advantage - you have spent a card in hand, while the opponent's number of cards in hand does not.

Compare to Surgical Extraction, where if you exile 2 from the hand, you are at +1 card advantage - you spent a card to remove two from their hand.

Unmoored Ego's only advantage is being able to target land cards, compared to other options. The only deck where this is relevant is tron, and only if you are on the play turn 3 before they assemble tron. This is such a corner case that it is not really relevant.

Thus, there are really no situations where Ego is better than existing alternatives.

Occultist, trust me, there's been a long winded conversation about the usefulness of Unmoored Ego between me and Arcanity. I like it, not so much he.

Would you please elaborate on specific sideboard plans esp. Disinformation Campaign?

btw, Those 1-of creatures seem they could use more copies in this deck...

And no Unmoored Ego for the combo matchups?!

What about Isareth the Awakener against Control?

Neither affinity, nor death's shadow, nor tron (to an extent), nor game-enders in control are single cards that can be taken care of with a single casting of Unmoored Ego. The only possible situation is against tron:

You are on the play turn 3 versus their turn 2. They have not played the third tron land, you exile all copies of it. However:

  • they draw replacement cards
  • you are down a card without impacting the board
  • you probably mulliganned aggresively to get here and do not have much to follow up
  • tron is perfectly fine to play without tron, just casting the big things once it gets enough mana.

If you want to hose those decks in your UB decks, dampening sphere works perfectly fine.

so this card in GRN called Unmoored Ego seemed to really strike out to me. I was just wondering if you guys would think that this will have a sense in modern play and could spike in price.

Considering that for only 3 mana, this card can single handedly shut down a lot of decks.

Some examples being death's shadow (if its a fully reliant deck), tron decks, certain affinity decks, and possibly some cards that are the game enders in control. For example, how is a blue white control deck supposed to win if you get rid of all their creatures?

The only downside is that it makes your opponent draw most of the time 4 cards if they have a full playset. however, it means that none of those cards you chose will be drawn so could it really be that big of a problem? Granted this card can be stone cold useless against midrange decks that have variety of ways to win like jund, humans, abzan, etc.

I could be very well wrong with this assumption but I think that it could possibly find its way into a grixis control deck or dimir control deck to thin out the competition and could get a couple dollars worth of profit. What do you guys think? Boom or Bust

Huh, I was thinking of actually running Kiora somehow, but I'm not exactly sure what I would swap for her. Liliana is honestly one of the ways I can win outright. If her Emblem hits, it's a MUST WIN immediate situation. Unmoored Ego is honestly a card I hadn't thought of running. I like that a lot, I'll look into it. Creatures aren't a thing I'm gunning for, but Hostage Taker May be a good one to take care of problematic creatures that can't be Pushed. Thanks for the thoughts!
