[HOU] Firebrand Archer

    I honestly want this card to be good.

    Is it good? Seems better than Young Pyromancer while facing down a Mentor. Also triggers from moxen. Deals damage the turn you cast it and kills planeswalkers. I think this card is good but possibly worse than Tendrils.



  • Grapeshot with power 2



  • Two of these in play = Tendrils for most purposes. Plus it can swing a few times potentiality. Why not just run it on side with Peezy?



  • This is another solid card for Harsh Delver style decks, though it does seem to benefit a deck playing more moxen. Maybe in a Jeskai Outcome list?



  • I kind of want to play this with deathrite shaman and Moat in a 4c shell.



  • How much play did guttersnipe see?



  • @John-Cox I actually played guttersnipe in the now-deceased (thanks ballista...) grixis pyromancer. It won me at least 2 games at an EE where I could not attack through blockers for lethal. That does not mean it was good and this card is probably better in the same slot.



  • This seems superior to Guttersnipe since it's a mana cheaper and triggers off of any non-creature spell so you can do damage off of jewelry being bounced/played.



  • I'd like it to be good too.

    The big problem I've seen with 1 toughness creatures is Walking Ballista ... as my piles of dead Eldrazi Mimics attest to ...

    Of course if you had a Harsh Mentor out already ....

    Or just play good cards like Null Rod instead :-)



  • Yep, I play the Null Rods ... and they are REALLY GOOD when they're down. These days I just play cautiously with the Mimics until I know what's what.
