Dictate of Kruphix Art

  • DInner

    replacing thassa in mono blue

    • CKP

      I don’t think it’ll replace Thassa, but maybe it’ll replace tidebinder mage or Nightveil Specter after rotation

      • DInner

        it does actually, thassa is the weakest card in that deck

        • OSFerret

          Um no. It is often considered the best card. It is consistently good damage, draw fixing, and unblockability. I don’t know if you have played that card but without it, the deck loses a lot of power and lethality

          • DInner

            no , it does nothing. its a waste of a 3 drop

          • urdumb

            Draw fixing for sure, this guy obviously has no clue.

          • DInner

            you’re right OSFerret has no clue, thassa is horrible

          • OSFerret

            Ya I don’t know what I was thinking, I must have been slightly inebriated.

          • DInner

            dont be to hard on yourself kid. we all make mistakes

          • Robert Kupper

            Dinner is trolling on all of the new releases. One might say… You got served.

  • Josh Kaufman

    This doesn’t replace Thassa, this works well with Thassa. I like the flash in that your opponent doesn’t get the first use of it, but I still don’t like giving my opponents card advantage even if I get to draw 1 more card. Plus how many of these would you want to play, 4? Probably not.

    In a UW aggro deck, you want to play maybe 2. But is it better than Ephara? It does seem interesting in modern though. Blue needs early ways to draw cards not named Remand and Think Twice.

  • Aaron Gray-Sitch

    Definitely going in Nekusar EDH deck.

    • Fbn Dnl Schlr

      Stupid autoinclude is stupid. Stupid Nekusar decks are stupid too.

  • Xero

    Hey, I can put this into Zur EDH pretty easily.

    • Fbn Dnl Schlr

      Why would you? o_O Zur Group Hug? WTF?

      • Xero

        First of all, Zur is control. So whatever they get, I’ll have an answer. Secondly, I have Consecrated Sphinx in the deck.

  • Robert Kupper

    First card this set that gets me excited. Not only do you get the first card out of it, but you don’t have to spend mana on your turn. Its a control deck’s dream. Is the extra mana worth it over kami of the crescent moon? Yes. Is the UU, the extra mana and no turn off worth it over Howling mine? Probably not, but I know a lot of decks that want more howling mines as it is. Will be run aside Mine and Font of Mythos in silly decks like turbofog and mill. (Silly decks I enjoy)

    Great art and text too.

    • But in standard, Master of Waves likes the UU.

      • MrAptronym

        Very true. I only play eternal formats, so I tend to forget things like that. Howling mine isn’t standard legal anyway. Still, I do run 2 Master of waves in my Vintage merfolk, so I should have thought of it.

  • GRUULman

    Wow I don’t usually play blue but this slightly pushes me towards it…. Somewhere in the deepest part of my magic core… I can feel it.

    • Leonardo Duarte



      • Dr. Storm Crow


        • Fbn Dnl Schlr

          Flippin’ the bird…

          • Dr. Storm Crow

            In Soviet Magic, bird flip you!

          • Fbn Dnl Schlr

            One does not simply quote random memes.

          • Dr. Storm Crow

            Such right. Much apology. So sorry. Wow.

          • Fbn Dnl Schlr

            Have my like, Sir.

    • CEREAL


      • GRUULman

        Not cereal then YOU die!

  • EmElw

    Not so sure how it would be done, but would Spirit of the Labyrinth, Aura of Immortailty and a Bubbling Cauldron make this… good? I’m not sure how it should be resolved, but would that be possible?

    • I think you mean “Gift of Immortality”, but no, when you sacrifice Spirit of the Labyrinth, it will immediately come back, so it will still be on the field and you wont draw an extra card.

  • mattbl

    This + Notion Thief = mmmm

    • Dr. Storm Crow


  • OSFerret

    Mono Blue needed more consistency…

  • waffles

    flash it in
    draw a card
    attack with floodtide serpect, returning dictate
    rinse repeat
