So we have come to the final segment of my Midnight Hunt set review for Pauper. Green brings us…one card of note. That’s one more than Artifacts and Lands! Let’s get to…it?!
Shadowbeast Sighting bears a passing resemblance to Roar of the Wurm. The difference there is that the flashback on Roar was the enticing part, as pitching it to a Wold Mongrel could get you a 6/6 for 3G. Now getting 8 points of power split over two bodies for 11 mana may not be the best, but the real problem is that these are 4/4 bodies, which is an awkward set of stats in Pauper. Myr Enforcer is a 4/4 so you can trade for mana for…no mana. Or you can trade it for a Galvanic Blast or Flame Slash, or let it get eaten by a Gurmag Angler. I think this might see some play thanks to Archaeomancer loops, but at 4/4 it just misses the mark.
So this one was a little short, so let’s get to my Top 5 cards for Pauper from Midnight Hunt:
5. Eaten Alive
4. Search Party Captain
3. Festival Crasher
1. Ardent Elementalist
