Card Me: A favorite hobby of mine is playing card games. There is just something really remarkable about how laying cardboard onto a table can bring people together for lots of fun/frustration. As a naturally shy person in real life, I enjoy how card games can bring me out of my shell for quite the social activity.
I honestly believe a lot of people who play Magic: The Gathering get too caught up in the rarity symbol for cards. Granted, the game is literally designed around the notion that the generally good cards are rarer and thus harder to pull in booster packs. If you want a strong deck the pros play, expect a majority of the cards in a deck recipe to be sporting a rare-and-up symbol.
Now, at face value, many people are going to tell you that this is a “bad” card. But this card is like a secret weapon of mine. I don’t really understand why people have overlooked this hidden gem.
Sure, it comes into play at two mana, and the equip cost is another two. Nonetheless, the equipped effects are more than worth it. Granting a creature both flying and haste means you are giving your guy/gal wings to take action immediately.
Suddenly, my hydra is going to double the +1/1 counters on my side of the board while being a flying, 8/8 trampler with haste.
All of which is possible because of Fleetfeather Sandals.
Not to mention, I can always equip these sandals onto another creature to spread the love around for various purposes.
Moral of the story: just because a card is a common does not necessarily mean it is crap. Fleetfeather Sandals for the win!
