Dohoho! I see what you did there. No, this feels more like them completing the promo cycle of titans. The fall promo could be anything, but will probably be modern legal if I had to put my money anywhere.
I hope this is a decision we'll see WotC sticking to with promo cards going forward as well.
I don't mind the paintbrush or DCI/shooting star expansion symbol but the huge-ass GP/FNM/shooting star watermarks largely ruined promo cards as it's the only thing drawing the eye when you're looking at the card.
Wow we've certainly come far since last year's horrendous changes this is amazing news and I can't wait for next year. Hopefully I don't end up runner up in a ptq again winning one of those gives you more pwps than winning a gp I think.
More seriously, I do intend to teach my kid how to play magic. The litmus test will be every month or so I'll hand him a basic land to play with. When his first reaction is no longer "chew on the card" he's ready to learn.
W may only be paid with white mana. U may only be paid with blue mana. B may only be paid with black mana. R may only be paid with red mana. G may only be paid with green mana. C may only be paid with colorless mana. 1 may be paid with white, blue, black, red, green, or clolorless mana.
The decision to make Primeval Titan a promo card was likely decided a long time ago when it was still legal in Commander. A Primeval Titan promo was clearly designed with Commander in mind because the card is obviously out of Standard and sees only some play in Modern right now. Primeval Titan got banned in Commander back in September, so it's actually still a recent ban. Wizards probably never expected the RC to ban the card.
I am VERY happy to see Calgary, Alberta get it's first GP. With ~3 million people in the grater Calgary area, I'm sure 1200 would be easy for attendance. I'm also biased since it's my home town.
- Too bad I live in North Carolina now But that means more american GPs for me!
