[ARB] Ardent Plea -- All-Multicolor Set?

  • #1
    Check out the new Magic Arcana. The preview card is UW and is the #1 card in the set. Following regular magic ordering rules, that means that there are no mono-colored cards, and if memory serves no colorless artifacts. That's pretty freaking wild. Though as a limited player I'm not certain if I actually like it.

    The monday update at dailymtg.com gives us this little arcana nugget.

    Notice the card number.

    I believe this means Alara Reborn is entirely multicolor.

    Have at it!

    Sure, stuff like Snapping Drake and Goblin Piker are for limited. But Null isn't even playable against a 5 year old whose hand consists of a 6 of Clubs, Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Chimney Imp, and a very large cumquat.

    interesting enough its a W/U enchantment for 1WU. The art makes me think it brings something back or somethign with lifelink.

    Technically colorless artifacts, lands, and multicolored hybrid and split cards are still possible. (Based on Dissension)

    Not sure how I feel about this with all the Limited repercussions...

    And the last time they did a gimmick like this (Legions), it didn't turn out so well. We'll see.

    If this is true, then I'am both surprised and not surprised. Dissapointed yet anticipating.

    Legions, all creatures. This, all multi-color.

    Edit: Never mind. "1/145" means it's gonna happen....Sweet/Oh Snap.

    Oh wow, I can't believe that at all....


    Nice catch circu, I knew there was something special about the card, but damn, I didn't know it would tell us the entire set was multicolor!

    Its not quite all of the card names, but I'll take it!

    I am currently watching "Pootie Tang" on Comedy Centeral, and honestly I feel myself dumber as I watch it.

    I didn't even notice that little tidbit until i came onto this thread. After that, double checking led to a Timmy heart attack. I have a fun feeling about drafts, and every one of my casual Shards deck is looking forward for multicolour fun :D.

    Nice catch. Yep, it does look like 1/145, being a UW card that starts with the letter "A".

    The art looks a lot like one of the Bant basic plains, just...really not happy.
  • #10
    If the entire SET is multicolor...OH MY GOD...I THINK I JUST HAD A BRAIN TWITCH. Anyway, it looks like i has something to do with some sort of help or way of getting your field somewhat replenished...and by somewhat i mean having no clue. And yes, that is the number one. i just crapped my pants...bc this is gonna make everything else seem weird

    OMG?!? All multi?!? My God that is really awesome! It seems that they are going out on a limb to make ARB a set to remember. You think they'll toss some lands in there for good measure?

    That's Elspeth's sword she's holding by the way.

    It reminds me of Righteousness. Its also very dark and dreary for a UW card.

    "Dark Ritual, Hypnotic Specter, Hymn to Tourach. If there is an unholy trio in Magic, this is it. These three cards have been wreaking havoc and crushing dreams for over a decade. They're like the New York Yankees, except powered by black magic. Oh, wait... never mind."

    Looks like pouring more money into manabases is inevitable...

    I still haven't gotten used to playing 3 colors, this is happening too fast for me.

    Maybe it is Elspeth. Although I'm not sure who exactly a planeswalker would be "pleading" with.
  • #16
    But nothing that costs a single mana? Unless they use hybrid, that's what will happen.
  • #17
    why not make the enemy aligned cipt tri lands for the set? i mean they need to support it even tho the best cards exist already.

    Elspeth probably ascended to become the new "Asha" and take her place on the Throne which was once Empty. Fingers crossed for a most insane and timmy-like "Asha" card.

    UN17, i like that thought, but why would she be pleading for that spot?

    All multicolor should prove very interesting, also who is Elspeth pleading with? Bolas to leave Bant alone?
  • #21
    I hope the set is "no-mono" and not "all multi". Limited is gonna need lands/artifacts to fix the mana in this draft format, losing 1 Shards booster for a set with 0 colorless/mono-colored fixing would hurt.
  • #22
    So wait if it's all multicolour then maybe a five colour planeswalker is not out of the question.

    But still it's going to be weird seeing an all multicolour set

    ...No way.

    I'm completely sick of multicolor, and they do this? Well...It's quite the sendoff, as such a set would lead me to believe that we won't be seeing "Super Nutty Rainbow Funtime" for a while.

    they can make it all multi-colored and still have 1cmc cards. They'd just have to give it a gold border and state in the rules text which colors it is. like a reverse Ghostfire.

    that's true, this set can (and probably will) have colorless artifacts and lands. It most likely "no monocolor" rather than "all multicolor."
