Dragonlord Fzerahk

Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon
Flying, Deathtouch
Whenever Dragonlord Fzerahk attacks, you may search your hand, library or graveyard for a non-Legendary creature. If you do, put it into play tapped and attacking, then exile that creature at the end of combat. If you searched your library, shuffle it.

Another one!

Equilor Protolife

Creature - Primordial
The Protolife, much like many of the creations of this Plane, is potential incarnate. Urza saw in them much of the clay of Tocasia

Make a Legendary Land out of a Planechase card.

Said on Aether Trample...


Archetype of Aggression, Arlinn Kord  Flip's flipside +1, or even Kamahl, Fist of Krosa are all possibilities.

Aggressive Bastion

Creatures you don't control get +1/+0, and whenever a creature you don't control deals combat damage to a player that isn't you, that creature's controller may draw a card. If they do, they discard a card.
Creatures you control get +0/+1, and gain Double Strike.

Make a new Nephilim, one that really hates on the missing color.

scrobacca: Yeah, 4 cards worth, tied with Blue, and hasn't appeared since Eldritch Moon. If it comes back, I'll re-evaluate it.

Argeaux: A one-set exception to the general rule. things will go back to normal(ish) soon enough.

February 12, 2017 11:40 a.m.

SaintedPlacebo: That's a nice way of putting it, but Flying is a 'hard' Evasion ability, not a 'soft' one like First/Double Strike or Trample, and has had Deathtouch (or rather, it's prototype) since Alpha with Thicket Basilisk.

Not brilliant, but it gets the job done.

I would like to see a Scarecrow Lord that would be a better Commander than Reaper King.

Said on Nothing to Fear...


TheRedGoat: No Fear on the first two, and Dark Betrayal is meant to act as a counter to those decks that do run Black, but it's in the sideboard as Black is only one of five colors.

And Vorthos is the tag used for 'flavor' decks, in comparison to Timmy, Johnny or Spike.

They didn't create it. It's been a long time coming and building up. Red is becoming more specialized over time. But Lightning Bolt is too good, so there is a hard cap to how far Red goes with what they are good with.

Also, Legends aren't supposed to be competitive with each other. They're supposed to be thematic.
