    Tormod's Crypt? Wow. Nice!

    That legendary girl is awesome..like she's really powerful..a 4 mana 4/4 Flash that makes your other guys flash'able is such a good deal.

    And a Tormod's Crypt reprint? Nice!


    Quote from RCarlysle
    I once farted during the final match for prizes at an FNM. It was a tense moment, everything was quiet, control vs control, I was about to mana leak, thought about it.. and farted. Then mana leaked.

    Please have Crypt with the FNM art

    Hermit Druid Combo:
    Quote from rowtheboat
    Uuuuh... Cast Hermit Druid... Untap... Win game?
    Sounds like a one card combo to me, unless you are counting lands as part of your combo
    Quote from Fizzeler
    Hermit does need to enter the battlefield somehow so you can win the game :p

    Quote from Raggedjoe
    This may be the first time "Tropical Island" has been a part of any combo. Just saying.

    Pillarfield Ox? The legend returns.
    Check out some sweet tunes. J_Ruth's latest tune is "Morphling" and, yes, it's named after the classic Morphling.

    Kinda sad it's not Nessian Courser.

    Tormod's Crypt? Are you serious? There goes any hope I had of playing U/G Dredge at any point in Innistrad's standard time. Saw Yeva, was super pumped to be able to flash Ghoultree/Splinterfright EOT. Saw Crypt. Punched a wall.

    They're really out to get Snapcaster I guess.

    Foreigning out SI, currently 33/75. The only thing better than a T1 kill is doing it with cards no one has ever heard of and/or can't read. If anyone has any of the usual pieces, PM me. I'm willing to buy/trade.

    Glad MaRo and co. were able to get another Doctor Who reference onto a card. "Best not blink." = "Don't blink." Plus, it's a great card. I really like this design space of green mages being able to summon critters on their opponent's turns so they're ready to go.

    The green legend seems slightly OP, but I don't really hate green anymore so I don't really care. Besides, its a great card for Commander! Smile

    And spellbomb has been virtually the same card and effect in standard.

    No, it hasn't. Mental Misstep in the sideboard deals with Spellbomb. Tormod's Crypt is an absolute pain to deal with. Crypt is leagues better than Spellbomb.

    Tormod's Crypt? Well...crap. Guess I'll be taking my reanimator deck apart now.

    This is why I don't typically play Standard.

    People don't like playing it unless they have black mana in their deck Rolleyes

    the card will see play now just because everyone recognizes it...

    Oh wow, Tormod's Crypt Reprint! I like it!

    After Grafdigger's Cage we now have this one? They really seem determined to stop any graveyard shenanigans, be it flashback, undying, grave crawler, reanimator, etc.

    I wonder if this means that the Dredge mechanic will make a return in RTR.

    Nihil Spellbomb is good because of the cantrip. Crypt is strictly side-boardable, whereas you could actually main Spellbomb.

    All in all, its good at what it does. Cage can sometimes be too 1-sided to see play in certain decks.
  • #20
    Is it confirmed that the legendary cycle is the foil in each intro deck?
    Kaalia 1v1 - Drana - Yeva - Zegana - Bloodbraid Elf

    I'm insanely picky and anal with my generals.
  • #21
    So...did reanimator decks just get hosed and Snapcaster finally has a leash. LOVE THAT CRYPT!
    My two EDH pet decks
    Nicol Bolas, a balance of Vorthos and PowerUBR
    Nath of the Gilt LeafBG
    Others
    Squee, Goblin of AwesomenessR
    Nekusar, the Mindblazer!UBR
    Vela the NightcladUB

    I used to be a world champion, but then I took a wolf to the knee. And three Galvanic Blasts to the face.

    Concerning when returning to Kamigawa would be acceptable
    I take back everything I've said, however, if the expansion is named "Tamiyo's Big Pinch! Only a Pure Heart's Destiny Can Defeat True Evil!"

  • #22
    yeva...awesome. nice art, relevant creature type, fantastic stats and great abilities.

    tormods crypt and revive reprint, unexpectedly nice
  • #23
    Yeva and Tormod's Crypt are both really nice!

    The rest is just a bunch of limited fodder, but I'm really glad we're also seeing them now.

    I think this whole "fans spoiling a few packs" followed by "Wizards revealing the big cards" is the way a spoiler season should go! (as opposed to "Wizards revealing the big cards" followed by "Wizards reveal the rest of the set, which mainly consists of limited fodder cards and everyone is disappointed that nearly none of the 100+ cards newly revealed are constructed playable")
  • #24
    They are making so many good cards to combat counters (Cavern of souls, Wolfir Avenger, now Yeva) yet they are taking all the counters away. Doesn't make much sense.

    Hooray for the crypt!
