Re: The Book of Lantern Geists

These guys look awesome thematically and I think they have quite a bit of potential mechanically!

4 defense and 4 life makes them hard to kill in one shot. If you load up OMs, whoops, I mean take turns with the blue Planeswalker, he can summon and unsummon them continuously to keep refreshing their health and pin down important figures. I'm not sure if using the Planeswalker as the offensive force is always the best idea, but it might have potential.

It's like football with swords or LARPing without the geeky stuff. In other words, it's awesomely perfect!

Re: The Book of Lantern Geists

Do not underestimate their card manipulation power. They would be worth it at their current cost at half the Life and Defense because of that power alone.
Point for point, the best squad in the game IMO.

A cloud can change its semblance, yet retain its will
With the intimacy of destruction, One knows what it is to be alive
The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow

Although they are not overpowered, I killed them quite easily, even after my brother had done some card play with them.

Re: The Book of Lantern Geists

He played them wrong then.

This is about blue control.
They should be in an out of the game every turn your planeswalker is selected.
You can summon up to two squads per turn, this should always be one of them.
You don't have to put the card on the bottom. It may be crappy or good, but either way you control if they draw that revealed card or not.
A good player will take advantage of that.

Its a devious squad who should never be used for combat unless in extremis. I agree with tornado, point for point, best unit so far in the game.

Re: The Book of Lantern Geists

I suppose it goes without saying but since no one has mentioned it:

Activate Jace, Investigator. Summon Lantern Gheists, look at other player's top card with Eerie Observation. If it's a good sorcery card, leave it on top of that library and use Jace's Search for Answers to play it on your opponent. Boom!

Yes. It would also remove any Enchantments on the Geists.
