I'm a relatively new MtG player, and among my first batch of cards was Leyline Phantom:
At first I wondered what I'd do with a card that might return to my hand regularly. Is it a relatively cheap source of power and toughness at a trade-off? I figured this would be mainly used for triggering various effects, but I had no idea what they were until yesterday. It would work very well in at least these two situations:
- It cooperates well with Sage's Row Denizen from the Dimir Delusion starter, which mills the opponent a little bit each time a blue creature is played and can help strengthen other Dimir Delusion cards.
- It could be used to regularly trigger evolution in Simic Combine creatures.
Now I'm wondering what other uses for it I'm missing, and whether there's even more to the above two points than what I've mentioned.
How can I take advantage of Leyline Phantom?
