Convoke: Tapping Into Your Potential

If you're like me, you've waited for a convoke deck that explodes onto the battlefield like a poorly piloted alien spacecraft. With NGA constructed, that wait is over.

Do they have it?

Anyone who has played limited has probably found themselves asking this question at least once. However, it’s not a very useful question to ask. So, what questions should you be asking instead?

Legends of the Waste, Week 39

Tears rolled down both sisters’s pale cheeks as the twins cried without sound. For minutes, they simply knelt together on the blood-slicked floor, looking at each other, weeping wordlessly. Each held the other’s shaking hands.
Verdant Mimic
Creature - Elemental Shapeshifter

You may have Verdant Mimic enter the battlefield as a copy of any land on the battlefield, except its an Elemental Shapeshifter creature in addition to its other types and its still 1/1.

This card looks a lot like another card that won, CotW. Oh wait, that card was a land; never mind.

Apprentice Graywitch

Creature - Human Wizard


Skald 1 (As long as this permanent is tapped, spells you cast cost less to cast. This can't reduce a spell's cost to less than one mana.)

Whenever you cast a spell, untap Apprentice Graywitch.

"It's not my fault! That was really distracting, I can't focus on... ooh, butterfly."
Notes from the designer: As a designer, I knew that the Skald ability was playing with fire. As such, it was made very hard to trigger for most Skald creatures. The apprentice, for instance, has some extra combo potential but can only provide her bonus to one spell unless you have a repeated means of tapping her.


See what other gems you can dig up in the NGA Constructed format gatherer!
