@griselbrother Please take the time to post these quotes in context.
Rich actually said:
This card is actually worth considering. First, it triggers more easily than Pyromancer -- such as off Moxen. Second, the Tokens this generates themselves have Prowess. This means that you can very easily win the game with a handful of these tokens. In a way, the damage output multiples your spells from one turn with your spells for the next turn. Now, there is a huge cost when you move from 2 to 3 mana. This card might be unplayable. But it's actually a card that might be awesome.
Rich is decidedly more optimistic on this card than you conveyed. I didn't bother checking other quotes - I was curious what my first impression was and Rich happened to be the first response in that thread. But now I'm pissed at the lack of journalistic integrity.
Haha relax. Yes of course it's taken out of context, but the quote is still as funny as it would have been if I had quoted the whole post he made. Saying the card might be unplayable shows how wrong the evaluation was no matter what else was said.
And honestly, I don't really think it makes his evaluation that much better that he said that it might be awesome when it should have been obvious to everyone and their dog that Mentor was gonna be completely bananas.
If someone says that the earth might be flat, it doesn't really matter if that same person also says that the earth might be round.
My post was never meant to be demeaning to anyone, and so I apologize if you feel offended because Rich Shay is your friend or idol or something like that, but I do think that Rich himself would just find his post hilarious.
