Yes, it is Jump Start allosaurus shepherd. And yes, everything is uncountable on your side if it is green including the dude itself. Oh, and it overruns, needlessly upgrading elves. Grrr.

Damn thing is a slam dunk. Poxy card might even slot into enchantress or such like.
Ruins chalice v elves. At least plague engineer exists...

first time for me to see it. Rather strong card, because it says "green spells" not just green creatures.

also a mana sink late game with dinosaur.

I've heard that card is super hard to find on MTGO right now and peopel are going crazy opening treasure chests just to try and open it.

It slots right into elves and probably a few other decks as well

100 Tix for Sheppard I hear. The EU appear to have indefinite delay on Jumpstart, potentially making this card sky rocket further!

Well, we fired the first UK Legacy event in months in paper. Standard was removed to accommodate us, and we sold out of our 24 slots.
I did an archetype report on my usual thread, of course, and it is very different to Mtgo.

that's actually really good to hear, I was actually thinking of trying to fire a legacy event in my area as well or at least looking into interest for it. I kinda miss playing it in paper

I'll look into your post

So what are people thinking about Zendikar Rising for Legacy? Do you expect to see any card that you think will shake up a deck or two?

No, very much no. I think it is a welcome break from Karn, Oko, Tef, Uro et al.
I think there are a couple of nearly cards, but then again DnT always has nearly creatures that don't quite make it. You might see cards that make sideboard in fringe decks- black decks nerfing enchantments might make Pox players reserve a sideboard slot, but nothing will shake up existing decks too much.

I've heard good things about Skyclave Apparition , especially for DnT. Also that black sorcery that can kill an enchantment seems good

So far Zendi not really impacting Legacy too much. Yes, there are tools- enchantment kills in black, but then again mono b is basically Curses, or Karn/Leyline, unless you want to old style pox. So not exactly format shaking. There are bits and Bob's rather than the tidal waves of the last two years.

I've listened to a few legacy related podcasts that were saying that the apparition can deal with a lot of different problem cards, so taxes decks would be able to trim down on random answer cards.

I'm not a taxes player so I'm just relying on other people's opinions. So take what I'm saying with a grain of salt

with smart play, the token would usually be worse for the opponent than the card that was exiled. I think the apparition has a lot of potential here.

tokens can usually be quite manageable for the most part, especially in legacy. i also really like design space with cards like this where they don't get the card back
