The Best of Dragon's Maze, Part 1

Since the spoilers are out and the prerelease is coming up quickly, I'd like to go over some of my favorite cards in Dragon's Maze.

 This one is a doozy.  5/5 for 4 mana is always awesome.  PLUS it has trample AND it's an instant.  Really powerful, and something Selesnya needed to give it a bit of a push.

This card, while not being super powerful, seems like it will be a hit at the casual tables for quite some time.  I love the fact that it mills you for ten right off the bat to give you something to grab if the game is still in the early stages.

Remember Pernicious Deed?  This is the sorcery speed version that also kills Planeswalkers. Guaran-damn-teed too kill everything you want dead, or your money back.

Six mana might seem like a lot for this ability, but I assure you it's well worth it.  I can see this going well in a Naya build or Boros Enchantments with Assemble the Legion.

I love mashups!  Gruul War Chant is what you get when add Goblin War Drums to Orcish Oriflamme and then throw some green mana on it.  I didn't realize it was an enchantment until I cast it in the MTGO beta!  (My MTGO username is MadOlaf, if you want to play a game or ten.)

It's a g-g-g-ghost!  He spooks out your opponent's creatures so much they lose some of their oomph.  Really helps when there are a ton of dudes on the other side of the table, and his own stats are nothing to sneeze at.

 I'll do another one of these later.  Let me know your favorite cards in the comments!
