Yeah it was very scummy, but very, very popular. Back then I think anyone could cast cydstepp whenever, so gnome rogues were kicking ass left and right. Hey, gnome rogues. But now that all the Sidesteppers efforts have shown how incredibly you can milk EM, she's an engine, and halflings got the health potions, and cauldron lets anyone use health potions to be able to cast cydstepp at will, so it's basically the same thing.
Rogues are by far the best at it since they randomly dodge hits for more free hits, and have the first strike finish, but transmuters should be plenty good, plus they have the easiest time scumming anything so even if you're not into scumming it's possible to give it a whirl. It's a fun bafooney strat
Only thing you need to scum for is cydstepp, and yeah, it takes scumming and I'm not a big fan of it in general, but this is just classic (and bloody murderous if done right). Plenty of folks were sad to see it go, and I'm glad it's back
It's not gonna break anything with the trisword fixed, but I know there's fun to be had with it
It's like a new expansion of MtG comes out and you see they reprinted something very old you used to play that got banned and now it's available again but the format let's it fit in and not stick out ^^
