This thread is for discussion of this week's ReConstructed, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.

Good card. I'll probably grab one as a backup beater for my EDH Bruna deck. But when I see an article named "I, Roas," one presumes it might actually be about Iroas ... a god. Not a schmuck. 'Cause to Iroas, this guiy is probably a schmuck.

 

I like the attention to detail on the cesti he's equipping; hope to see a cesti equip sometime in this block. There's a few wholly Greek-ish sets of weapons the game can turn into equipment, and fist weapons like these are one of them. We should be getting a spear/shield pairing for hoplites, but given how MTG think hoplites should be using swords instead, unlikely.

 

He's also not as swarthy as a Greek should be, which is a downside given how significant he looks, how central he might be to some strategies, and how non-Mediterranean some people's concepts of human should look -- and this is coming from someone who's of Celtic and Nordic descent.

Anchorman may have some smart writers, but it's all derivative; they stand on the shoulders of giants, as this very quote does.
