5/17/2018: Playtesting with Karn, Scion of Urza

  • Urza's Factory: Is great on an empty board or late game for that extra blocker...it's tokens also powers up baby Karn's construct tokens for late game inevitability
  • Drawing multiple copies of baby Karn is fantastic...the ability to either draw two cards in a row or create multiple construct tokens to threaten lethal is backbreaking
  • Baby Karn's +1 allows me to plan ahead with the exiled card acting as a forecast for the options I have later in the game...even if Karn got removed I still have game later on if I draw another copy to draw the best card for the boardstate
  • Goldfishing felt great...with the average CMC reduced I am able to get more consistent draws with lesser mulligans and better late game with baby Karn
