Silumgar’s Scorn is a Messed Up Magic Card

Silumgar's Scorn
Silumgar’s Scorn is a messed up Magic card.

Esper Dragons in Standard is “not even realistic”!

All the other strategies are invalidated!

Too many people are just not playing realistic decks!

Esper is so much better than everything else it’s almost not worth having a conversation… And a big reason for that is of course Silumgar’s Scorn (which is a messed up Magic card).

Silumgar’s Scorn comes out on turn two as a Force Spike… And is essentially Counterspell the rest of the game. (You’d be surprised at what kind of “something special” it is to have Counterspell in your deck.)

Esper is so good that even their “bad matchup” Mono-Red got handed a 13-0 record beating over the Pro Tour and Grand Prix!

“If you don’t show up with something new, you better show up with Esper!”

But lucky for Top Level Podcast listeners, Patrick and Michael give you something new (maybe):
