Vexing Devil is a good one drop if you don't want to break the bank. Goblin Guide is about seven times as expensive and the Devil makes a decent replacement.

1 drop for a 4/3 seems pretty powerful to me. Hard to deal with in the early game depending on what youre up against. Might be easier to just take the 4 damage to prevent more than 4 in the long run.

That’s the problem — it isn’t a 4/3 unless your opponent chooses for it to be a 4/3. This is the Browbeat problem and why a lot of cards like this are traps — both sides are great in a vacuum, but when you have context, your opponent will always choose the side that is worse for you.

On turn 1, they either don’t have removal, in which case it becomes a bolt+1. Pretty sweet. If they do have the removal, you just played a creature that dealt no damage to them, as opposed to Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, or Eidolon of the Great Revel. You spent a turn doing nothing, which you can’t afford to do. Mid-game, you need cards with reach, which Vexing Devil does not provide. A 4/3 for 1 is completely irrelevant in a burn deck by turn 3, in which case it again dealt no damage.

They’ll adjust the bots sooner or later. The deck hasn’t been as much of an issue in paper drafts where people value those cards correctly.

I was under the impression they already had adjusted the bots earlier this week, and that stuff like Secretkeeper and Revenge of Ravens were not as easy to come by now.

Well they definitely hadn’t when I drafted that deck I posted on Wednesday evening. Haven’t drafted since then so maybe they pushed an update on Thursday or Friday?

Looks like just Field of the Dead got axed (and Astrolabe in pauper).

I think not killing one of Krasis/Oko/Nissa in standard was probably also a mistake, but we'll see what happens.

I am happy about Astrolabe getting punted, even though Impact Bombardment was overall strong against them.
