OMG, this is NUTS!
Totally worth the wait!
My only regret is that he can't partner with Baral, Chief of Compliance
to make the ultimate EDH Control duo.

May 25, 2017I wish it could add the mana in any combination of colors so it could go in any deck,Posted in: The Rumor Mill
but this is still pretty cool.
I can't believe this deck has (at least) FIVE new Commanders...
hopefully the other decks have the same number!
May 23, 2017Empathogen posted a message on July-September FNM Promos (Reverse Engineer, Renegade Rallier, Fatal Push)I'm a little sad that all my foil Ralliers will take a hitPosted in: The Rumor Mill
(I preordered 20 for $1 each).
However, Fatal Push was most definitely one that needed to be a promo,
so that's good.

Somebody on Twitter mentioned Nerf as a possibility, and honestly I'd die of laughter if Wizards printed a Nerf gun equipment card.
If they make a Nerf equipment,
it should turn the equipped creature into a 0/1 Vanilla.

Kiora, I don't quite know what to make. Ulamog and Kozilek are dead, so mission accomplished there, but she certainly didn't appreciate Jace countering her "drop the Halimar sea on Nissa" spell, and in the aftermath of the Titans' destruction, she refused to help Chandra up, instead preferring to walk away, and not stop walking for a long time. She may remain a wild card, capable of either helping or hindering the Gatewatch but never comitting one way or another.
So in other words, she's Catwoman?
And I didn't think I could like Kiora more than I already did!

Don't forget Hexproof— Crystalline Sliver needs a buddy!
And as for Sliver Queen, that's a very easy workaround:
Sliver Empress WUBRG
Legendary Creature - Sliver
Slivers get +1/+1.
2: create a 0/1 Sliver creature token.
Apr 28, 2017Empathogen posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 4/5 - Gideon of the Trials + Trials/CartouchesI didn't mean to imply his abilities were similar-Posted in: The Rumor Mill
it was more about the value being similar.
I expect Gideon of the Trials to see play in Standard (Gideon Tribal, of course), Modern (control loves all three abilities), and Legacy (where instadeath is common).
Oh, and EDH will love him, too.
He instantly makes Gideon, Ally of Zendikar better, and vice-versa.
I'm not saying he's going to end up Lili level price,
but I still think $23 is a good deal for this card.
Apr 28, 2017Empathogen posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 4/5 - Gideon of the Trials + Trials/CartouchesPSA: This guy is currently selling for ~$23.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
I would buy now if I were you- I feel like the only thing that could reduce that value
is him getting banned (which is a bigger fear than usual now, I suppose).
He's a W Liliana of the Veil, and he's going to see extensive play in multiple formats.

EDIT: well, I HAD purchased 2 copies at $3 from StrikeZoneOnline, before they cancelled on my as "out of stock". Last time I buy from them. Pissed me off too, I didn't buy these to flip, but to use. Also, at the time I could have bought from other sellers at $6 but didn't, now that ship has sailed.
Same- the turd I bought from on eBay also cancelled my order,
even though they were $10 each.
Stupid greedy people.
Don't list the cards at a price if you aren't willing to sell for that price.
Apr 24, 2017Empathogen posted a message on 4/24 Banlist update: Legacy Top banned, Vintage Gush/Probe restricted.Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from LuckyJoe1988 »Pretty grateful Top is not banned in commander. Hope it never will either.
You wouldn't know it was banned *anywhere* going by eBay prices-
looks like a single set went for $40 earlier today,
and auctions for them ended in that range *before* the ban!
Stupid Price Memory.
Apr 24, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Ryperior74 »
Just in the nick of time I got one.
$7.5 light played
And I just bought the last $40 playset on eBay -___-
I don't know if I even have a deck that can really use them,
but I don't want this to become another Doubling Season
(ie- very pricey card that a few decks *really* want).
I guess Jarad and Yidris can use it,
but I don't really have the tools in those decks to truly abuse it.
Ezuri might like it though- the hulk itself doesn't give him experience,
but saccing it could get you quite a few...

Leovold, Emmisary of Trest
I *so* called this (over and over).
Apr 23, 2017Empathogen posted a message on Slightly increased frequency of Masterpieces - from 1:2160 to 1:1935Great, so these hideous things are slightly more common than the much better Ultra Mythics we had beforePosted in: The Rumor Mill
Can the people who have actually seen these weigh in?
Are they any less disappointing looking in person?
