My Precious Darkness

I’m wondering at the moment if the following cards are an essential building block to many of today’s decks:

4x Hypnotic Specter
4x Sword of Fire and Ice
4x Will-o’-the-Wisp

These 3 cards are so powerful, and have such great synergy its hard to think of a deck with swamps in it that doesn’t want to run them. I’m sure pretty soon I’m going to be adding (and replacing SoFI with Jitte) :

Dimir Cutpurse 1UB
Creature – Spirit (r)
Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card and you draw a card.

This has to be one of the best creatures I’ve seen printed while I’ve been playing magic.

Has anyone noticed that all these creatures are spirits?

  1. Dimir cutpurse can still be blocked and is only small… a different 3 to cast creature can still beat it… its not bad, but I think there were better cards especially in rav that are better then this one…
