View Full Version : 36th Card Breakdown video - THESE are spirit fingers!

07-19-2013, 04:36 AM

With the three videos from this week, I have now hit my 36th Card Breakdown (http://youtu.be/Es9zEzYPTAU)! Today, I'm looking at Spirit Dance - as requested by Jon Olsen.

If you've missed the previous videos this week here are the links:

Wednesday - Blinding Light (http://youtu.be/iZgyM-Bi_kw)
Monday - Mushwocky (http://youtu.be/damzwWSs0fE)

If you agree or disagree with anything I've said in my videos - or if there are other aspects of the card you'd like to bring up (I always have more to say about the card I break down but for the sake of time parse it down), I'd love to hear it!

A big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to watch one of my videos. Seeing this community come together has been awesome and without your comments, suggestions, criticisms, and support, my channel would not exist!

Spirit Dance? Brave.

Spirit Dance? Brave.

I agree, very brave. With the cards currently spoiled, Spirit Dance seems awful. It is too costly to be a worthwhile ramp spell. A 5 shard spell that does not affect the board, your opponent's hand, or your hand (besides the inherent card disadvantage)? Ouch.

Yet perhaps the equipment could make up for these failings.

That's why I tried to focus on its potential. There are many cards which just won't see much, if any, use in set 1, but may pick up speed in sets 2 or 3. Maybe I didn't do it justice, but Spirit Dance was the review that's always been looming in the back of my mind trying to figure out what use it has.
