Obviously Jace caused some lasting harm when he scrubbed her mind. She's forgotten how to do anything.

I'd have a great time building a deck with Emmara, Despotic Scepter, and a whole bunch of "Return from Graveyard" spells.

Maybe I'd even throw in a few copies of Rod of Ruin to allow me a chance of winning.

I for one can't wait to see the Wizards article that talks about how secretly awesome and Jonny-tastic this card is.

"Okay, guys, I know what you're thinking. But you can use her with cards that care about highest converted mana cost! And she's soooo much harder to hit with the deadly new Gaze of Granite! And...wait, this is super secret tech here...you can ENCHANT HER. Or even, if you're really willing to splash for colorless, you can even try out some equipment. Hedron Matrix, anyone? And if you reanimate her, hoo doggy, now you're just getting KUH-RAZY."

Also, I like the flavor text. We too will put the ranks of the guild before you, Emmara.

So I just had to check...

Being a Selesnya follower since Ravnica was introduced, and white green before that... I just had to check how Emmara rated compared to the rest of the cards in Magic.

Out of 13378 cards, she is currently the 208th worst card by our community's rating standards. That's the bottom 0.5% of all magic cards.


...What even was Wizards thinking? Limited to 10 Mythics does not give an excuse for this terrible atrocity.

A moment of silence for Selesnya players.

Nucleon... you don't know how right you were.

Almost every single card they mention in this article is something that works much better with creatures other than Emmara — indeed, most of it works better with Avacyn, which they do note in the article and then promptly ignore. While they are willing to admit Emmara was an underpowered mistake, they apparently still want us to play her when there are much better options.

This champion used to hold the power of Voice of Resurrgence, but it was considered too powerful for a rare so the two cards switched abilities.

@Silence9

You can try to justify it all you want; she's still too underpowered for her casting cost to see use. There are good token lords for EDH that play much better than her. (See: Rhys the Redeemed, Tolsimir Wolfblood)

...Also, why bother drawing Go For The Throats when we can just Wrath of God / Day of Judgment / Damnation all of them instead? Asceticism does jack shit against board wipes.

There's a big difference between wanting every creature to be ridiculous for its cost and wanting every creature to be actually useful for its cost. This is a 5/7 with an ability that has almost no effect outside of combat and who has no removal protection whatsoever. She's even in two creature colors, and she's still below the curve.

Really, Emmara isn't going to be staying around very long in EDH. Yeah, she's a fun card to play around with, but she's still not very good.
