@vaughnbros Vigor can break openers and this card does not. Instead, it completely dominates the mid/late game at little opportunity cost compared to filling your deck with green spells. I personally am much more afraid of the latter, especially considering its synergy in Oath and Dredge decks.

@fsecco I agree, this card seems like a Big Deal. Far more concerning as a shops pilot than Force of Vigor.

This is a ridiculous ability on a body that has upside when it gets removed (and it will). Unfortunately, it's too slow against PO which may be enough of a hurdle to prevent much testing.

On the other hand, builds are currently going through a massive metamorphosis thanks to the new Karn so a few copies may slip into lists.

RIP shop prison forever.

@fsecco Yep, it's not great, but it's an option. If you're building a Shop deck that hates null effects, this seems better than praying you can build up 7 non-artifact mana for Meteor Golem or Spine of Ish Sah even if you have to dodge Wasteland.

Interesting to note that this is the cheapest way for a shops deck to remove a Null Rod or Stony Silence, though definitely slow.

Turn 1 Ancient Tomb,
Turn 2 <this>, tap to add 1 counter
Turn 3 Wasteland/Mishra's Factory/whatever, activate

This card is fantastic, but doesn't look like it slots into existing Shop decks very easily. The fact that it has an immediate, powerful impact on the two most powerful decks (other Shops and PO) makes me think that we'll see Shop pilots taking a wrench to their manabase to make it work.

@fsecco My Rock deck cost less than $40 to put together and that's using 'real' cards. If you're looking at using gold borders, all decks are fairly cheap. Not sure how much cheaper you can get.
