Top 10 Cards I will Miss Post Rotation: #10 Domri Rade

It is that time of year again when we have to say goodbye to our favorite cards from another rotating set. This time it is the Return to Ravnica block that will be rotating out of standard. Overall I enjoyed RtR. I thought there were plenty of brew worthy cards. Unfortunately I think that there was too much of a gap between the power level of certain cards like Supreme Verdict, Sphinx’s Revelation, Abrupt Decay, Pack Rat, Desecration Demon, etc etc that kept the format a bit stale and hard to brew innovative decks. However, we did see some wildly successful brews like Jund Dredge, Immortals of the Forge and Blast of Wurms.

I am excited to start brewing around the new Khans of Tarkir cards, but first I would like to give one last hoorah to my favorite cards that will be leaving us. Rounding off my Top 10 list, I chose a card that did see a ton of play in standard over the last few years, and that is probably why I chose it for #10. I present to you Domri Rade:

Ahhhh Domri… Easily one of my favorite planeswalkers if not my favorite. I think that Domri is perfectly balanced and perfectly designed to really shine in heavy creature based decks. At first when this card was spoiled, I absolutely hated it. I had previously played with decks with cards like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas or Augur of Bolas and was very familiar with how often these cards missed. My real mistake with evaluating Mr. Rade was not giving him the credit he deserved with his -2 ability: Fight! The card has insane synergy with certain creatures, and with the printing of Hornet Nest, I just had to give this guy one more deck.
