Magic: the Gathering in the UK
whether or not i choose to eat shit is irrelevant. go ahead and pass me tallon trooper and i wacth your flash and card advantage lose to my hoard of flying beasts. maybe they should print a card that says 'rob wins if he plays lots of tricky stuff that doesn't do much'.

This guy is card advantage and has flash, Im glad you're thinking for yourself, but you're wronger than grovers hair colour
Ethersworn Shieldmage has flash.
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir has flash.
LSV weighs in (sorta):
Esper: Artifacts and removal spells are basically it. Even solid cards like Talon Trooper just don’t end up making the cut in my good Esper decks, because artifact synergies with cards like Faerie Mechanist, Sanctum Gargoyle, Arsenal Thresher, Ethersworn Shieldmage and others are just too powerful. I do like having a few non-artifact bodies in the sideboard in case your opponent has the double Nacatl Savage deck, but for the most part the only non-artifacts in my deck are spells and really good creatures like Wall of Denial or Zombie Outlander.
Sam Black on Star City Games today:
The draft before that I won with an aggressive U/W/b deck with a lot of fliers. These decks have been playing very well against me, and I was pretty happy with this one. I took Esper Shieldmages over Esper Stormblades early in pack 3 and I was happy with the result.
