I’m PTQing this weekend in Columbus, and my deck features a super secret tech that hopefully will catch my opponents off guard……FETTERGEIST!
I’ll post the deck and my results on Monday or Tuesday, but for now, consider how awesome this card is in a UW Delver/RG aggro standard. 4 toughness means it can’t be Slagstorm-ed, Gut Shot-ed, Galv Blast, Incinerate-d or Brimstone Volley-ed (w/o morbid).
It blocks pumped up Spirit tokens, Delvers, Huntmasters, Snapcasters, Strangleroot Geists, and other format staples without dying.
It also blocks a Bird/Elf with a Sword of Something and Something no problem, while coming down on turn 3 in time to jump in the way.
In a deck that doesn’t play token makers, Fetters is a stand-alone and stand-up guy, with maybe one other creature out, so you don’t mind paying the 1 to have such a flying house out there.
Fetters is the real deal.
