Part of my Eventide exploration, here is my review of selected blue cards, found on the full visual spoiler.
I love the art work on this card. Thank little guy casting a spell against all odds really summarizes the game of magic to me. I like the art so much I’ll give you the link to artist Howard Lyon’s website.
I only wish that this card had retrace. I think it would be worth two mana then.
An eye for an eye?This is basically a Cancel that gives each player another card in hand. I don’t think this is a bad card since it will keep the game moving. You could counter one of your own spells drawing two cards… Again good art here (Ha, I only just noticed it is Howard again).
In a color matters world this card has the potential to be a great tool. However I do see this as a more casual card than something in constructed. However it could be a nice little surprise in draft or limited.
Glen Elandra Archmage
Here is a very interesting creature. a 2/2 flyer with the ability to counter 2 noncreature spells. I for one haven’t been playing much of Faeries lately, so I don’t know if this is good enough for the competitive Fae decks. However I would like to put this in some casual decks for bit of good old fashioned control.
And I said nonblue goes home. This might cost a lot but it beats creatures that cannot be destroyed as well as shroud.
