    Frost Titan maybe?


    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 asked Helene Bergeot on Twitter and it's actually intentional.

    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.

    I like that they decided to stop using random set symbols for promos.
    I felt like a lot of them cheapened the art or looked just plain ridiculous.
    If combo should die before I wake I'll slide a Smokestack in every deck I play, roll in every shop wreck the Spirit of EDH.

    Kinda new to the tourney thing, what's "friends limited?"
  • #36
    I'm just glad that Primeval Titan finally got its promo like its other brothers.

    It is a shame its banned in Commander though.

    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.

    Bah why did they have to make Dublin Modern format, I'd have gone if it was a decent format Frown

    The promo choice seems odd, but guess it will see use.

    Btw, Belgareth... could you give the rest of us awesomeness lessons? Please?

    Belgareth, I second the quote in your sig. You should teach a class.

    "FRiends" is the codename for the set after RTR block. They haven't announced its official name yet. It is next year's big block sealed.

    Also, more Modern GPs in the midwest. Apparently that's all we're allowed to get (Lincoln, Chicago, Kansas City, now Detroit...if only Indy weren't on the worst weekend possible for a GP).

    Well since the introduction of Modern, the 3rd PT of the year has always been a modern event, with the first a year ago in Philadephia.

    It normally goes

    1st PT - Standard
    2nd PT - Block Constructed
    3rd PT - Modern

    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't call 1361 players "close to 2k", though it's nice that a limited GP will probably get past the 1200-player threshold for the top 8 getting PT invites.

    As far as I know, most grandmothers are also mothers. I could be wrong though...
    Quote from Dire Wombat »
    Basically, if you want to open packs to get cards for Standard and Modern, the simpler approach is to just buy all the singles you need and then set some money on fire to make up the difference.

    BTW, per Helene Bergeot on Twitter, a more detailed version of the GP schedule including venues should go up tomorrow.

    I wish it were that simple myself to go to that pro tour;). Modern being my personal favorite.

    Excited for Detroit to have a GP again. Looks like I need a Modern deck. At least I have until September to get it.
  • #46
    Prime Time is the promo for the first half of 2013, not the second half. Vegas is the first GP that will have the next promo.

    Would it be possible for someone to post the schedule on here or PM me the info. I'm on a government laptop and stuck in Afghanistan and they block wizards site because its associated with games.
    Currently Playing :

    Standard - :symb::symg: Aggro
    Modern -:symr::symu: - Storm / :symb::symg::symr: - Dredgevine / :symw::symu: - Eggs / :symw::symu::symb::symr::symg: - Doman Zoo / white mana - Soul Sisters
    Legacy - :symr::symw::symg: - Zoo / :symr::symg: - Belcher

    On the Standstill Promo

    That seems like a ripoff. Why would anyone play that when the next spell you cast will make your opponents draw a bunch of cards? It does not even look good for mill decks.

    Holy crap, if that was in Standard, or used in Modern, that would be an amazing promo!

    At least it can go into an edh dec- at least it's a nice card.

    just remember wotc, be sure to keep that print run in check. we don't wanna upset players of mtg: the stock market, after all.

    My Ban Senses are tingling about Bloodbraid Elf in Modern. Just Saying. You heard it here first. 10/18/2012.
    ^ Will be kept until 12/31/2013 to prove if Right or Wrong. Proven right 1/27/2013

    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 XD But that means more american GPs for me!
