    you know what’s great? taking a red only mechanic and just making it way worse.

      seems to be a running theme lately (i.e. 3 mana lightning bolt)

      Seriously, when did fire-breathing get too powerful? And didn’t they say that “the pendulum is swinging back in direct damage’s favor” or something?

      • Shagoth

        They probably mean for the next sets.
        Because it some how got worse every set, which I didn’t know was possible.

        • Communist_Bear

          maybe the pendulum is broken and red burst are flying away from the game to disappear right into the garbage bin ?

            Abzan will rule the world.

      • Pandancules

        the pendulum was in reference to creatures becoming more powerful and lack of answers being printed, so they meant weaker creatures and more answers

      If this were just a 3/3 with Afflict, everyone would just say “Hill Giant with upside”, but add fire-breathing for 1R and everyone loses their mind!

      • Happy The Cat

        because Hill Giant isn’t great, afflict 2 is whatever, and taking fire breathing and doubling the cost makes it terrible. they could have taken any ability but red-bad breath and this would have been a playable common, even drawbacks like echo and Cu. upkeep would have been better since they have interactions with cards that already exist.
        also green is paying two for bigger creatures. so yeah, this annoys me.

    I wonder how many give or take Eternals were produced. How often do crops have part what’s left of them pass the Trial of Zeal?

  • Shagoth

    Wow, anti synergistic abilities.
