and revolt is active on any permanent, so you can still hit 3 & 4 drops with it if you crack a fetch.

Also this is a nice answer to all the copters running around.

Also I'd give it about 2 weeks before everyone is sick of people going "THIS IS SPARTA!" when they cast that card.

Default Re: Aether Revolt

this Baral guy seems pretty cool



also there's this



which happens to work so nicely with cards like Collected Company, Thought Knot Seer, various Planeswalkers, etc

not to mention chaining it with this



and following up with a Lilliana of the Veil or a Kolaghan's Command


pretty silly stuff.... no telling if it's good enough for Modern, but both should be decent for Standard and ridonkulous for limited

I don't know if this will be as good in limited as the version that costs 1 more and has flying but it still seems like something you p1p1 over most rares and pretty much any nonrare.

Umm, no. It's a fine card, but will trade easily with a 3/3. Nighthawk's brilliance came from evasion, lifelink, and the 3 butt in a format with 2 damage removals. I doubt it's a top 5 or 10 uncommon. It's a ground guy with lifelink.
