It seems kind of sad when you're playtesting two of your own decks against each other, and you use sorin's -7...

Dear Wizards- Because You Reprinted Sorin Markov....

and are planning to make another version of him in Dark Ascension. Please. God. Dear Lords of the Multiverse. Do. Not. Print. Sorin2. in foil.

I will not forgive you if you do. Because you have 2 printings of Markov out there already, a third printing of Sorin (in a new form) in foil would be just too much.

It's not because he's a Planeswalker, or a Mythic Rare, or the posterboy of the set that concerns me. Money is usually not that bad an issue for Planeswalkers.

It is because

Sorin's back, and he's gonna beat your ass down!

He is my favorite Planeswalker (next to Karn). If you can ramp him out, he'll do a fair amount of damage before they can deal with him.

Also, this sets up Liliana for a reprint in Innistrad.

Ugh, that middle ability. Soryn guy gets hate in EDH.


I'm actually amazed looking at this guy - he has the traits of the original planeswalkers in that he's expensive but comes out in very durable form. His abilities are also all very nasty - +2 to shoot something and gain life?

He's actually a bit too powerful, I'd say. You really have to hit him hard when he comes out or he'll get back up from his -3, and if he doesn't need to do that then you're really in trouble. This is one of the nastier planeswalkers by far.

@jimmy

I highly doubt that was legal for three reasons:
1) if by secede you meant concede, you're not allowed to do that. Check the rulings.
2) if that player didnt have anything that allowed him to sac his creatures, you couldnt do it. You vcant just say ''i'm saccing this creature for the hell of it.''
3) unless he had a hand modifier or cards that allowed him to discard at will, you couldnt have made him discard his entire hand for the same reason you cant sac a creature to nothing.

frankly, I'm astounded the defending player let you do that. I find it tricky to believe that both of you were that clueless about the rules, and didnt think to call over someone who knows them.

This isn't setting up a reprint for Liliana in Innistrad, it's setting up a new version of Liliana, also it fits the apparent gothic theme of Inn, the returning vampires, and his + ability works well with Bloodthirst.

I'm just waiting for someone to play Ajani, Mentor of Heroes' ultimate (-8: You gain 100 life).

"I gain 100 life."

"I play Sorin. -3. Your life is now 10."

"What?"

"10. Deal with it."

it is odd indeed that this is legal in edh, especially when looking at the ban list. Quite a few cards that set life totals make the list ie biorythm, worldfire, sway of the stars. Kinda odd that this doesn't make the list.its powerful, but in the most degenerate way in edh.

People seem to overlook the fact that his -3 activates all those Worldwake vampires.
Maybe not the best use for it, but pretty cool from a flavor standpoint.

That +2 is really powerful and if you can cheat this guy out earlier in the game with Cabal Ritual (say, Turn 2*) you basically win. Weenie decks can't do much about it and if you're out of targets you can drop them to 10 and start pinging them to death.

This guy could be super-fun in an unconventional MBC deck that relies on him for most of the win condition instead of beaters. Would it work? Meh, not in the long run without seriously good spell support, but it'd be fun in casual.

That said, it surprises me he's still at $10; I was hoping he'd be more affordable than Obliterators..


*Example:
T1 - Putrid Imp
T2 - Discard Grave-Troll, Dredge it, discard it again, play a swamp and Cabal Ritual

House rules of my playgroup set the -3 to 20 life in EDH. Fits with the intended spirit of the card. Same goes for all the other cards that name a fixed life cost, like Serra Ascendant, Felidar Sovereign, etc. Either multiply or divide by two to get the same ratio with 40 life.
