Part of my Shadowmoor exploration, here is my review of selected artifact cards. Found on the full visual spoiler.
The Shadowmoor Artifacts have a cycle of color matters static ability cards as well as an exciting new creature type, Scarecrow. There are so many artifacts in this set so I’m going to split up my artifact review into Scarecrow Artifacts and regular artifacts. First, general artifacts because I know you want the Scarecrows more.
This was an OK card for me in limited. I would have much rather had cards that gave Wither to all my guys, Corrocive Mentor. But I was able to eliminate or mitigate threats.
I think this is a great cheap way to draw cards. Reveal the same two lands every turn you have a great way to reiterate your colors and keep the advantage.
In the world of untap finding a way to tap a guy is a good thing.
This was a great ability when people weren’t used to untap. I was able to attack and leave a guy tapped until my opponents attack phase. Opps my guy is bigger and blocking. This also worked well when attacking without blockers.
