I'm actually gonna say that this sees narrow play in a control/combo build as mana tech, since it has dual functionality as a mana boost or forcing through your combo. But I'm probably wrong.
I really think this is interesting in legacy high tide, which is a pretty second tier deck right now. I wonder if this would make it much better?
Yeah. I'm not so sure this isn't good in high tide.
Some facts about high tide -
- It is less that 1% of top 8s in the last 2 months. So I'm gonna say (that while I like the deck) it objectively kinda sucks right now.
- The one instance of a top 8 in the last 2 months ran 1 cloud of faeries, 2 Flusterstorm, 1 Snap, 1 Meditate, 1 Pact of Negation.
I'm not so sure that the deck can't be improved by replacing some number of the above cards with this counter. (Is this card really worse than a cloud of faeries?)
@evouga Yeah. It just doesn't seem like that much of a problem though. It converts FoW and Brainstorm into mana, which seems pretty sweet. I doubt there are many times when you aren't able to fire it off for lack of a target. Maybe you are short the start -up mana. I can see that. I can't believe this isn't better than Snap though.
