Toshiro Umezawa is by no means a common Commander. He’s very awkward to play, given that he has a combat trick and creates a “flashback” effect when creatures die. Since the “flashback” effect only hits instants, the list has a very heavy focus on utilizing different instants and sorceries–some of which are so underplayed they don’t seem real!

A Dubai-based investor is betting on Africa’s growing inter-regional trade and movement to build a new brand of mid-market hotels. Jameel Verjee, founder of CityBlue Hotels, is optimistic that the less than US$150 a night room is the low hanging fruit in Africa’s hospitality industry.
A corporate lawyer turned entrepreneur, Verjee is the founder of Diar Capital, an investment company focused on the creation of growth businesses. Diar Capital launched three hotels in Kigali, Rwanda earlier this year and is keen on expanding across the region.
“We are in a number of sectors but we believe that this is one of the fast growth sectors to focus on: mid-market hotels. Africa’s economies are growing with a lot of inter-regional trade [and] inter-regional movement,” said Verjee.
“The average business person can only afford a certain price point and we feel that this is the right market to scale.”
Diar Capital has made investments in various sectors including retail, fast-moving consumer goods and real estate in sub-Saharan Africa and Dubai.
