Master of the Feast

Master of the Feast


This card will be a "thing" in Standard. With mono-black already being a deck type, this will fit in perfectly the turn before Desecration Demon and it will help that deck win that much faster. Even if mono-black wasn't a thing, I'd still call this card pretty good. It's a 5/5 for 3 with a downside, but no one gets to take advantage of that downside until your next turn, meaning that if you can give it Haste (perhaps with a Whip of Erebos?), you get to basically chuck a Lava Axe at your opponent's face for 3. However, if the game drags on for a while, it can come back to bite you as your opponents will get a ton of card advantage off of this. It'll be really good in 1-on-1s, since you only have 1 opponent to worry about, but in multiplayer it may not fare so well. Like I said, this will be a thing in the current Standard meta and it might make an appearance in other competitive formats (maybe Modern, definitely in Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks). Great card for Standard right now, maybe not so great once it rotates out.

Pros: 3 mana for a 5/5 flyer
Cons: Gives opponents extra draws
Rating: 3.5/5
