Limited Card Pool Update: (no) Heartwood Giant
While I was scanning the competition for the newly spoiled Sentinel Spider in the green 5-mana slot of my limited card pool, I noticed that I had kept Heartwood Giant just for nostalgic reasons. I have no issue with a green creature directly damaging an opponent, but I don’t like a mediocre tap ability on a 4/4. Yes, it is a means to close a game, but it neither plays well nor is it especially exciting. Once again, it’s not that I couldn’t use the giant in a cube – it’s perfectly fine – it’s that I wouldn’t, since I have enough preferrable options, no matter where I want a specific cube to head. So, to keep the overall number of cards in my pool down, I’m taking it out, no matter how I will decide concerning the rumored new Spider.
