Hello everyone! Jandrobard (dwarf bard specifically) is here to Brainstorm up weird decks and never make them into lists. Other than magic, especially EDH, I read a lot of misc stuff including comics, play dnd, Overwatch and Hearthstone. In WH40k I play Orks, which expplains my preference for playing red.

Favorite card: Solemn Simulacrum. Especially in EDH, where I can spend turns durdling around reanimating/saccing/flickering him and gaining incremental value instead of interacting or actually contributing to the game. Feldon of the Third Path is a runner-up.

You are Red/Blue!

We got another story article, and what you've said basically holds up. She almost goes down from an environmental hazard and gets in a fight she can't win, because she's still thinking from the perspective of an Oldwalker. Even when Jace has shown his competence she's still treating him as a useful tool rather than an ally.

Some educated guesses about kicker:

I think making kicker as generic of a named mechanic as possible was both a really good and really bad idea. Good because it can theoretically show up whenever, bad because it doesn't suggest anything evocative about the card itself. Kicker is just "sometimes the spell is better," whereas devour suggests eating creatures, entwine suggests two different effects coming together, etc. That means that the designers, who want to make cards that are exciting, opt to make new mechanics instead of using kicker. As a result, kicker mainly showed up in callback sets like Dominaria and Time Spiral, and only showed up in Zendikar because it was a bottom-up design that needed a mechanic that could go on a bunch of different cards with no unifying theme.
