vs.

Considering you are opening last pack in an NMS draft and these two cards would be best to choose, which would you go for ? Of course, having Skinrender as an option means you are playing black + something else.

Discuss!

I'm just curious how would others go, cuz i went for Skinrender.

it would be a tough choice in all actuality. depending on what you want you limited deck to do is the main factor with this. do you want it to go fast and strong? or would you rather have it go slow and steady. the hurt that you can throw down with a Skinrender is pretty big. but the speed of the lash is pretty sick as well(even without spells to hit it with). personally i'd probably go with the lash as i'm a speed player. i like to have big things happen early and an equipped flyer early game is pretty nasty.

livewire lash is at its best in a fairly aggressive poison deck. aggressive poison is hard to pull off. Even if you were aggressive poison, i'd take skinrenderer. lash can just be shattered, the creature can be traded with. skinrederer is god.

Only pick Livewire Lash if you cannot support a double black card.

Skinrender is removal, tempo, card advantage and a reasonable creature. It also has an effect even if it gets destroyed later.
Overall much stronger than Livewire Lash as long as you can support the colored mana.

If it's your first pack, go with the lash so you'll still have all your colors open.

I mentioned it's the last pack Rolling Eyes

Guess Skinrender is best to go most of the cases.

Laughing Funny at you haters just jumping in to flame. I was trying to open up a discussion which maybe will help some of us while we drafting. We are not all so pro as "some of you" so asking for opinions is not a bad thing to do. So I don't really consider it's a wasted thread since it could probably help some of us Wink

If this thread was at all helpful to anybody, then they are simply beyond help. It doesn't take a "pro like "some of you guys"" to realize the painfully obvious. This is like opening a thread that says:

"My opponent and I are both at 3 life. I have a lightning Bolt in hand with 1 Mountain untapped, and he has 0 cards in hand, or graveyard, and no mana untapped. Assuming I want to win this game; do I target him, or myself with the Lightning Bolt?"

And no, that is NOT an exaggeration.
