Magic: the Gathering Dragon’s Maze Casual & Commander Review: White, Orzhov & Selesnya

I spent way too much time figuring out how I would break down this set review. Doing 10 or 15 seemed excessive, but thankfully the Guild-aligned split cards did it for me.

So this review includes all White cards and all multicolored cards from the Orzhov Syndicate and the Selesnya Conclave.

The rules on this seem finicky to me, especially since it can only tap an opponent’s creature. It is an interest variant on the Master Decoy, but as a common, this isn’t a card I see getting much play at kitchen tables.
