ere in the United States the Wizards offices are closed as we celebrate the 4th of July, our independence day.
In American notation we write the date of July 4 as 7/4, which also happens to be a somewhat reasonable power/toughness. Let's see what a Gatherer search yields...
I remember casting Ashen Monstrosity a few times during Kamigawa block and even before that I made good use of Illusionary Wall. The most recent of these was Magic 2012's Crumbling Colossus, but sadly there isn't a 7/4 in Magic 2014.
So what if we're feeling a bit cheeky and we use international notation to instead write the date as 4/7, what other creatures do we turn up?
Well the 4/7 form is quite interesting with Elesh Norn, Jareth, Luminate Primordial, Tariel, and Myr Battlesphere! That's a spicy power/toughness!
Turns out the power toughness of 4 and 7 in either position yields quite a few interesting cards! Now I'm off to enjoy the day off and... wait... I have to do another Arcana for tomorrow? Back to work I guess.
