Exclusive LR Shadows over Innistrad Preview Cards!

It’s almost time for Shadows over Innistrad, and we’ve got four uncommons for our exclusive preview cards this time around. Let’s check them out.

Obsessive Skinner_EN_HRR

Obsessive Skinner is sweet. It has some flexibility when it enters the battlefield on where to put the +1/+1 counter and late in the game if you can get delirium going it starts to become a long term problem for your opponent. Nice.

Manic Scribe_EN_HRR

Manic Scribe is interesting because it comes down early enough to do some blocking in an attempt to draw the game out, and it even has a win condition built in. But enabling graveyard shenanigans for your opponent may be problematic.

Gibbering Fiend_EN_HRR

Gibbering Fiend has meets the bat barely on all fronts. It pings the opponent (not their creatures though…) when it enters the battlefield, and is a serviceable 2/1 for two mana. Later in the game it will be really annoying for the durdle decks in the format, but ultimately it’s pretty easy to kill.

Paranoid Parish-Blade_EN_HRR

Paranoid Parish-Blade tries to transition into the late game and might even succeed. The key question is if a 3/2 for three mana is good enough on its own. If it is, then yay, upside. If it isn’t then waiting to get to delirium is a tall order for a beatdown creature like this.

      • I think Vazhkatsi is right – the ETB effect of Topplegeist makes it line right up with the rest. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t really think of CMC as a critical part of a cycle since different colors have different levels of ability to produce mana. It IS interesting that these are all 2, though.

        I’ll be interested to hear what Marshall and Luis have to say about these. They kind of seem like C to C-minus cards (or maybe a little worse in the case of the blue one) in Limited to me without Delirium active (but I’m not that experienced), and Delirium seems super hard to turn on in Limited. Should be a good episode!
