My Amonkhet Favorite
Seems like every set it is harder to choose a favorite card. Don’t get me wrong there are some really good cards in this set like Glorybringer and Samut.
For this set though I’m going to have to choose the newest Nissa.
It’s not unreasonable to think this Planeswalker could come down on turn 3, 7, or 10. Scry with any card and then use her zero loyalty option to cast things for free. There is so much value with casting things for free. It’s a fantastic way to really load up the board and change the game state to your favor.
Then when you’re ready, use that ultimate and fly over and do some heavy damage. Even Scry 2 has some major implications for early and late game play if that’s all you’re using her for.
The only downside with Amonkhet Nissa is when there is no creatures you control on the battlefield. She does not protect herself like many other Planeswalkers but I think the upside of X-cost and getting things on the battlefield will outweigh that mostly controllable drawback.
I’ve been playing limited more with this set and I’ve got to say I’m a huge fan of the Trials and Cartouches. If you’re doing a draft and you see a trial think long and hard about if you can make that color work. I’ve won games with green and red trials. Bouncing them back to your hand for a repeat effect is always a great addition to a limited strategy. Try it out at your next draft and let me know how it goes!
I Like Amonkhet Nissa, What Card Do You Like?
Tell me which card or cards you love the most? Also what are your thoughts of the Gods? I think they are fairly underwhelming.
