In honor of finally having “official” 4-color options, I’ve decided to give my pre-playtest opinions on the new 4-color Partner configurations. I’ll start with how I think they work together and give them a score on Compatibility from 1(least) to 4 (most) with only one “4” awarded, and a score on how likely I’d be to build them as a pair (1 = no, 2=unlikely, 3=possibly, 4=yes) with no guarantees.
Note that additional card choices/deck context could improve compatibility, but I’m not going to go too deeply into that, though I may mention brief ideas.
The Non-blue “theme” is “ATTACK”. My current non-blue tag-team is “Token Sacrifices” with Kresh and Hazezon.
= Buff a trampler, get more opportunities at Saprolings that are Buff. Seems Good.
Would I build: 4 This is very likely to replace Kresh/Hazezon in my current Tag-Team.
= More things to attack with, means more things might get through.
Would I build: 3 I don’t know if it would be much different than TanaRavos
= You’re playing small creatures, so Maybe that means you have mana for big other spells?
Would I play: 1
= Akiri doesn’t get more toughness.
Would I build: 1
= Putting Counters on Akiri seems decent.
Would I build: 2
= Bruse targetting Ikra means 14-28 life. That’s crazy.
Would I play: 4. These two will probably get their own deck.
= Reyhan will make things bigger, and bigger things with Double Strike is good.
Would I build: 2.
