Doomsday |
Sorcery (M)
Search your library and graveyard for five cards and exile the rest. Put the chosen cards on top of your library in any order. You lose half your life, rounded up.

I have always loved Doomsday. This art is great and will really pop in foil.

That said, this is an awful Mythic in a $10-a-pack premium set.

It's about the best choice they could make really. What were their other options from Weatherlight?

Call of the Wild
Firestorm
Lotus Vale
Null Rod

At least Doomsday will make for an occasional odd game in limited and is a popular combo piece in various other formats.

Doomsday, but at Rare instead.

Another set I want a box of but probably won't buy.

Isn't that worse? I thought the issue was that we want something better in the rare slot. Moving this to rare will make it be in the rare slot more often and make the price lower.

Gemstone Mine at Uncommon, ideally. But even Gemstone Mine at Rare would be better than this. Argivian Find and Argivian Restoration would be perfectly plausible commons or uncommons for draft.

And all of those still have a shot to be printed at or near those rarities. They are not just doing one card from every set.

I know. And they're not doing one card at each rarity from each set. They could have just said "Nothing from Weatherlight is worth putting at rare or mythic". They didn't have to print Doomsday for lack of alternatives.

If they're putting a rare or mythic in this set, drawn from every set? Homelands scares me. Fallen Empires scares me.

I saw an invocation Doomsday in an Hour of Devastation draft once. Pretty sure it got picked last. (This was effectively a phantom draft, so money drafting it wasn't an option.)

But this set does have some crazier combos, so maybe someone will get there.

I thought the issue was that it was a disappointing mythic.
Personally I think it's fine, there's a lot of other cards I'd be more willing to complain about.

That art alone makes this worth collecting. Not sure I'd play it, but I'd pick this over some common just to keep.

Looking forward to responding to this with Blue Sun's Zenith for X=6.
