Yikes. Resonate seems quite a powerful mechanic, but this one in particular seems very abusable. Two of them in tandem make Capsize for half the cost!

...No, wait, I've misunderstood Resonate. The resonated card doesn't go back into your hand, it's a "pay its cost to cast it now or get nothing". Okay, that seems much more sane.

Resonate is a recent addition to the set file, as I'm trying to explore more connections to the graveyard, as well as ways to generate card advantage without resorting to cantrips.

It's probably a little crazy to think that Recoup is a legitimate keywordable idea, but it's just an idea to test for now.

After the recent reveal of Tiago Chan's invitational card, Snapcaster Mage, it's seeming a lot more ridiculous to think Resonate is a viable keyword.

I guess I'll be exploring alternative graveyard synergies.
