Saving this here.

I'm not a fan of glass casket and witching well in the slightest, I'm not particularly convinced that flavor should be a relevant factor on whenever red or black gets to destroy a permanent or is powerless to stop it. Plus I feel that "I want to run shatter because I need to destroy equips, vehicles, artifact creatures, colorless silver bullets coming from the sideboard or permanents with a strong tap ability" is more logical than "I want to run shatter to blow up things equipments, vehicles and random stuff that they wanted to have artifact flavor or they wanted to be weak to shatter and not mire in misery for play design concerns."

Even if they want an artifact matter block, it would be more memorable if the artifacts behaved differently from enchantments, imho.

(Ps. I'd also have loved if bolas citadel was an artifact enchantment, but whatever.)


I can see a complaint about glass casket. Seems like they could have done something to make it less direct comparison to oblivion ring type enchantments. Like maybe you tap it, the creature goes into exile while it’s tapped and it stays tapped unless you pay some (high) amount of mana to untap it. Something to make it a little different. Doesn’t really bother me cause I’ll take the flavor win, but I can see a complaint at least.

Witching well I don’t see the complaint. We’ve had artifacts you sac to draw cards before. We had Implement of Examination in kaladesh that did basically the same thing (well costs 1 more but gives scry)

EDIT:
And more important it can block it al day even if it's smaller... did I mention that Teferi can't bounce it...

Have we ever gotten an artifact creature that’s straight unconditional :x: X/X? Even the green x/x creatures cost at least 1 extra :g:. Seems crazy it can go in any color and be as big 1 for 1 as your mana. Ugin’s Conjurant had a weird damage clause but was still a good card in WAR limited. Chimeric Mass is close but has a cost to turn into creature and doesn’t have the extra text for reach, trample, and protection.

This gonna be great in limited, and I could see as a viable sideboard option at least in standard for Telfari match ups. Poor hero of precinct one decks if this has traction :/

We had Endless One and green has Voracious Hydra which is bigger when you have 4 or more mana.

Forgot about endless one, but yeah that went 1 for 1 with your mana pool. That was great in limited. This looks like it could see constructed play tho, with abilities that make it more than a big dumb body you can chump for days.

Hydra can get bigger when cast later, but I didn’t bring it up in earlier post case you can’t play it for 2 mana if you need a bear in your curve.

The Snake is tailor made to shake the meta...
Protection from Teferi, Kayas oath, Krasis, Reach and Trample!.... That silly Eldrazi got nothing of that

One of my favorite builders... more of a modern guy, but I think this is worth a big FYI.

Sorry, he’s a bit weird, but fun once you’re use to him.

That's some pretty high tec. I'm not calling tech "sweet". I've decided it's "high" now.
