    New Essentials

    New Essentials
    We're going to need to put a shit-ton of these cards from Avacyn Restored into the Essentials. A new Time Walk, a new Wheel of Fortune, a new Wrath that's great, Avacyn the Broken. Griselbrand the Next in Line, and many others. Holy Crap! And that's in addition to some solid choices from Dark A that haven't been discussed, such as Increasing Ambition.

    re: New Essentials

    I haven't looked through an updated Essentials, but I would begin by pulling Rakavolver, the remaining morph cards, for the powerful houses Avacyn, Griselbrand, and Gisela.

    I haven't actually read the set spoiler. Looks like I need to get on that.

    Yeah, this set is pretty awesome. Great cards for 5-color, fun stuff in standard, and now i get to reanimate Griselbrand in legacy.

    re: New Essentials

    Okay, finally. Sorry, I am slow.

    Avacyn, Angel of Hope
    Gisela, Blade of Goldnight
    Terminus
    Temporal Mastery
    Griselbrand
    Reforge the Soul

    Seems like the best stuff.

    Harvester of Souls
    Killing Wave

    Are probably worth consideration. Those are all the things that screamed at me as I read through.
    *mooooooooo*

    Re: New Essentials

    I don't think Killing Wave should go in. It's a very situational card and I think that the Essentials already handle mass killing a lot better. Another card to look at is Restoration Angel. She's good, really good.

    Re: New Essentials

    Do either of you gents have an excel copy of the essentials? Doesn't matter how old. I had a huge computer crash and lost it. I'd rather not have to rebuild all the formulas and such.

    *Never mind* I found a copy on my other computer. It's a bit out of date, but it'll suffice.

    New Essentials
    Not me. It was just a really old drive and fatally died. It was a sad day. I recovered nearly everything though, so that was a happy day.
