Part of my Eventide exploration, here is my review of selected green/blue hybrid cards, found on the full visual spoiler.
This art was one of the first spoiled during the Eventide build up. Personally I thought it would be a Kithkin/ Merfolk water baby. Oh wait what is a Selkie? Who cares, it draws cards and Islandwalks. Great creature that can give card advantage over blue control decks (assuming you can get it on the board).
Invert the Skies
One of the more interesting combat tricks in Eventide. I do like the idea of giving a huge green treefolk flying. Funny artwork especially the Kithkin hanging on for dear life.
Overbeing of Myth
Great throwback to Kami of the Crescent Moon. and other card in hand power toughness creatures from Kamigawa. I’ve had this in hand and there aren’t enough card drawing engines right now to really make this guy go nuts. However a build around Mulldrifter, Revellarch and Mistmeadow Witch could be interesting.
This maybe the best guy in this cycle because it can protect itself while it is weak. I’m going to run this guy in some casual decks I have going on so he and Vexing Susher can rub elbows.
Again if this had persist it would be a much better card. Especially for an uncomon. Still played in a deck with the other green/blue hybrid cards I give it props. Not as scary as Cold-Eyed Selkie but when you can see the monster it is never as scary.
