I'm glad they do this in core sets, so new players can get the hang of what "combo" is in a lighthearted non-Spike way. Someone above/below said they don't like it when the cards reference other cards by name, but that's absolutely essential for new players -- a new player will own, like, three to five packs of cards total, and they just literally do not know of that many cards. A card like this motivates them to go look up or find more cards, and encourages thinking more about finding cards that pair well together instead of evaluating each card's value in a vacuum. Learning to combo Spike style can only happen later, once you own more cards and get to know lots more cards and can start becoming more selective.

The M12 combo was too complicated and dry, and had kind of a distanced haughty mood to it, but this new combo for M14 is fun and funny and silly and richly flavorful... and was surprisingly potent in the prerelease tournament. It's a win.

This is not overcosted, it gets to fetch newts and has a decent sized butt. Newts that will act as kill spells when they die. and it can do this repeatedly.

Well, not really since you can just tutor for them.

Play in a deck without the Newt or Cauldron to draw your opponent's removal.

Wizards missed the opportunity of a lifetime: this could've been a Hag.

Combos with Bubbling Cauldron and Festering Newt.

Wraique, you're crazy, newt is great and Cauldron is not bad even without newt. Leave one mana open and your opponent won't really like using their removal. Turns chump blocks into 4 life for you. Even without witch you can play those cards. Witch pulls it all together.

This strikes me as a bit cartoony. Why not go all out and make an Enchanted Broom equipment card that gives her flying?

I feel like this is a missed opportunity to bring back the creature type Hag.

I guess we're now waiting for a Macbeth legendary creature in Theros???
