    oh hello squadron hawk. well fixed squadron hawk but still nice card engine.

  • Geddon

    I am absolutely LOVING this vampires-as-conquistadors vibe coming from this set. Especially because that’s all the real Spanish were to the New Worlds they discovered.

    • Daniel Scott

      yea, political commentary game is on point in this set by the looks of things.

    • Diego

      Let me guess, you are Spanish, right?

      • Geddon

        Nope.

        • Diego

          Your commentary comes to show you know nothing about my country’s history. If we were vampires, the other states were freaking Eldrazi.

          • Geddon

            Your country got there first, and got the whole thing started.

          • Diego

            Started? That’s a bad excuse. Around 70% of Hispanic America population is mestizo, whereas the native population of the north was virtually annihilated.

          • Nick Art

            I mean, the US being Eldrazi is honestly not that far off.

            But yeah, can’t we all just agree that colonialism was/is bad, regardless of scale?

          • Diego

            Agreed.

          • Diego

            I also appreciate how the flavor text states they look for glory or riches but not blood. Though they are vampires lol

    This might be enough to enable an Oketra’s monument deck in Standard, despite the loss of Spell Queller and Selfless Spirit.

    • Bobit

      And thraben inspector, and most token lifegainers, and efficient white removal. But still, this card is so strong.

  • Happy The Cat

    wow, this is broken in EDH
    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Mini Zem

      Nah man, Squadron Hawks are still better by far ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • Shagoth

        Brothers Yamazaki makes them weap. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • Joe Heinecke

    Nobody expects…. The vampiric inquisition!

  • Zutaradimus

    First not quite cradle, now not quite squadron hawk. Dah hell Wizards!?

  • Alex

    If only it had the Relentless Rats clause of unlimited numbers in a deck. I would love to do a janky Grandpappy Markov with a few of these infinitely bouncing back and forth.

  • ‘sup-cakes

    I know Wizards doesn’t need to follow every type of lore, but that is SUPER sunshiney for a vampire card.

  • Chaospyke

    Deck thinning plus reinforcements. Can’t hate it.

  • Shagoth

    Vampire Nightless-Hawk

  • Hedronal

    That staff almost looks like Avacyn’s.

  • Nick Art

    Good deck thinning in Limited, especially in Sealed for those grindy games were you need a couple more bodies and have too much Mana.

  • Roman Kickel

    Uw Monument ? It’s funny :D
