Having Parallel Lives in white now is great. The only thing that bothers me is the fact it's a story card.

About Vizier of the Menagerie, as I understand it, the only condition is that the top card should be a creature card and there's no constraint on how you cast it and what the resulting spell is. I may be wrong though.

Samut: New Naya commander. Really really powerful.

Drake: Is the Chimera better because it has trample? 4 toughness is quite good .....

Zombie: Now I want a WB Zombie commander AND a WUB Zombie commander!!

Super Shatter: All the flavor. All of it. Chandra bringing down the house in the nexr block - AGAIN - seems highly likely.

Sweeper: Good against little tokens. Good in standard. Good in the lategame. Good card good.

Protection: Ehhhhh ........ Okey I guess???

I don't get it. I really want to like this card, but...

I mean, I understand the flash, the vigilance, the haste, and the untap ability. It works well with Exert and other abilities that require tapping creatures. It's a great trick.

But why does he (she?) has double strike? Just because why the hell not? Is it related to his story somehow? Is is there just because of Commander? It makes no sense, and it's bugging me to no end...

Samut, a reaction in ten parts:

  • Cool a R/G legend, wonder if it will fit in my Radha deck
  • Oh COOL a Warrior, should fit right in
  • Flash. Neat.
  • Double Strike. Now we're talking (goes to check cost again)
  • 5. Hmmm.
  • P/T is 3/4. That's pretty good on a double striker
  • Vigilance. huh?
  • Haste. Oooooh nice
  • Other creatures you control have haste. HELLLLOOOOOO NEW COMMANDER
  • W, T: Untap. WHAT?!?! WHITE!!?!?!!?!!

Harsh Mentor, Shefet Monitor, and Quarry Hauler will all definitely make it into decks of mine.

And it looks like we finally get a really really good minotaur commander. Plus the god and Samut also seem pretty sexy for EDH.

Considering how much I love (and continue to play) Krosan Tusker, Shefet Monitor just seems so damn solid.

Very likely to be Adun Oakenshield's new go-to durdle target.

It's a Naya General that has a boatload of keywords (a'la Akroma) and plays well with non-Blue Tims. Really... If we're being honest

This has worked pretty well for me as an Esper Zombie commander. There's actually at least a couple cards which are going to make it into that deck.

Honestly, there's a reasonable number of cards I'm looking forward to in this set.

Are people really complaining about a commander that can be either two color or three color? The only thing negative that this card is making me think of is that I wouldn't run her as a warrior commander because no black but then realizing that stupid Saskia from C16 is a soldier because someone at wizards was on the bad acid that day.

Yeah, pretty much this. I can see complaining that you can't run it under another RG commander, but if you want it as your commander, who cares if it has an extra (totally optional) color?

For solidarity/flavor and to not have a pointless keyword-soup hamfisted tacked on colored ability.

I'm putting her in my Saskia for sure, so i don't really care, but i totally get it. Card is designed for total shit imo, but seems fun.
