Faithless Brewing, Episode 72: Scourge of the Skyclaves
It’s finally here: Zendikar Rising is live in Magic Online and Magic Arena, so it’s time to roll up the sleeves and start hitting the queues! First card up: Scourge of the Skyclaves, my pick for trickiest design of the set. Part Death’s Shadow, part Tarmogoyf, this demon manages to emulate both while also playing by its own set of rules. Can it crack the top tier of creatures in Modern? Do the tools exist to support it in Pioneer? There’s only one way to find out!
