I've been away from Magic since Odissey...
1. I was wondering which are the best additions to the Type I environment after Odyssey, (I saw a green Time walk !!)
2. which decks are considered the most dominant...
3. I know FoF has been restricted, which cards have found their way back into Keeper Decks (Braingeyser ?)
4. Have there been any interesting cards for my TurboLich (tm) Deck ? :-)
Nantuko Shade BB
creature- insect shade
B: Nantuko Shade gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
Rancid Earth 1BB
Destroy target land.
Threshold- instead rancid earth destroys target land and deals 1 damage to each creature and 1 damage to each player.
1- Both these cards have found their way into Nether Void decks, Nantuko shade being the creature of choice instead of good old negator. The shade also saw some play in some suicide black decks and it's probably (more than probably) the best card in its set.
Seedtime, the green time walk, can only be used on your turn and if the opponent played a blue instant. It's a nice card, but I don't think it makes the cut in type 1.
2- there haven't been many changes with keeper and ose pretty much tier 1, followed by the usual suspects.
3- Monoblue got the hose with FoF restriction although keeper and Azhrei's OSE survived. I think that issues on these decks are better answered by Matt, Darren, etc... since they know them better. Although yes, braingeyser and stroke are back on keeper.
4- I really don't think so... but then again, I never played Lich either:P
all in all, type 1 keeps the same as ever...
