As much as id love this card to be good.... and there are upsides to it, pitch to grief, pitch to force of negation, probably too much mana. The surveil is great but not sure it does enough
I know, that is what I was hoping, that Surveil (+ the ability to pitch to both forces if need be) will be enough of a compensation for the extra mana, hopefully I will find out this week in some playtesting
Make sure you proxy in grief when you test. Im going to be putting that in every deck with black in it. I think its going to be amazing
I usually do but fortunately I have most UB core cards since I own UB faeries and GDS too so I have the cards to playtest in FNM if given the opportunity to go again soon. As for the new cards like Grief etc I want to get at least one copy for my commander decks 😁
Musasabi's list is so tight at the moment I can't personally see the current discard spells being replaced. Sometimes we may need to cast two spells in a turn or maybe cast a discard spell and leave up mana to counter something. Even though it is just one extra mana it could leave us exposed where we may not have been had we had that one extra mana to cast fatal push, remand or archmage's charm etc.
Test it and let us know what you think.
Do you have MTGO? That is where I go to test decksp, if you're struggling to test in person.
I know 1 more mana is rough, was just hoping it was worth it. No, unfortunately I don't play on mtgo that is why my testing is limited right now, however I will probably play a few games the coming week, hopefully the card shows up and lets me come to a better conclusion
