Blind Obedience is a great card, but having multiple on the field is silly other than multiple extort triggers.
Crypt Ghast WOULD have been great if he wasn't 2/2.... if he was 1/3 I think he'd be sooo much better. He's still solid for an extorter though, obviously the best option other than Blind Obedience.
Thrull Parasite is the only other Extort I'd consider even using, because he's a 1 drop and can mess with counters.
ALL of the others who have extort, to me, are useless. 3 drop 2/2 flyer? Meh.. he's alright I guess.
1/2 flyer is worthless in my opinion.
Bear, Wall, and 2/4 knight.. useless in competitive.
Treasury Thrull isn't TOO bad, but it's too pricey. 6 drop for a 4/4? I mean when he attacks, that is a handy ability... but in competitive terms he's just too slow...
Vizkopa Confessor... don't even need to go into detail with this one. Waaay too pricey for a 1/3.
Why couldn't they give us some extorters with.. other simple abilities like Bloodrush and Evolve recieved?
Ghor-Clan Rampager < still, even if it is a 1 time thing, this card as the other bloodrush cards win games...
Elusive Krasis <- fantastic card, in my opinion...
Perhaps it'd make them over the top... I think [c]Basilica Screecher[c/] (and of course the kingpin) would be amazing if it had Flying/Lifelink/Extort. But eh... I guess that IS over the top. Though I could see the kingpin being given trample... mostly because of the brass knuckles though :P
Anywho, what is your opinion on extort in regards to the current standard?
