is probably still easier to abuse as a general, although she's a much worse plan B if you need to win via general damage or something.

The icky control player inside me wants to rebuild my Hanna Stax deck with , , and .

On a different note, I really like the Afflict mechanic. Not only is it the first punisher-style mechanic in a while that looks like it might be viable, the design space that and occupy seems both broad and interesting.

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

So that's any 2 lands, tapped, and occasional zombies.
It's kind of the peak of the land search cmcs that I'd consider running outside of Maelstrom Wanderer but probably ok for that because you're not hitting it turns 2-3 with artifact mana too often.

If I wanted to run non-basic TOTTB effects, I'd probably run this and forget about the zombies. Also fairly sure that it will not effect standard to the extent that the price blows up so it''s likely a dollar-bin rare.

I'm ok with this card.

Yeah, its great for mana fixing, but too slow for ramp... unless its Urborg + Coffers.

If I ran this I would most likely search up two Ravnica Bounce lands.

I don't play ramp that costs more than 4 cmc. I wonder if Hour of Promise would have been overpowered if it cost 2GG without the zombie clause.

Maro just tweeted this....

I really dig it, plays well with Ephara and Trostani (my favorite generals), as well as any Soul Sisters-like strategy.

:D

If anyone is tempted to go look at "Horse"s on gatherer, don't bother. They're not worth looking at.
