Unique Discard Outlets in Eldritch Moon
Verdict: Hit - This is just begging to be used in a variety of archetypes.
Flagbearers from Apocolypse, a repeatable method of generating tokens at Common certainly caught my attention. In an aggressive White Weenie build, you are fast enough to get at least some value out of a 1/1 for W, and it then lets you convert extra Lands or the like into 1/1 Human tokens, which once again is a favorable creature type. This isn't great, but it seems like it could have an important role in the right sort of White Weenie or Tokens build.
Verdict: Bunt - It will be interesting to see if the new Standard can bear this.
So what do you think of Skirsdag Supplicant and Thraben Standard Bearer?
