    Any thoughts on a card name?

    EDIT: From the source someone said the name is 'Reason to Fight'
    Unfortunately the second half can't be fight, since an aftermath card in Amonkhet took that name. Frown

    I'll probably try to make room for this. As MikePemulis said, Golgari is really tight, but for me at least, the cards are:



    I already cut Putrefy for Vraska so that it was at least something sort of different instead of just Deathrite and 4 removal spells. I'll probably axe Maelstrom Pulse for this to promote diversity in the guild.

    Beat me to it!

    This card seems interesting - it's a 3/3 flying vigilance with either a once per turn Flickerwisp effect or a once-every-other turn Journey to Nowhere effect. The fact that even if you're exerting, you can still attack on the turns it isn't exerted makes this an interesting potential include. The fact that it plays offense, defense, and exiles all at the same time makes it seem like a pretty decent jack of all trades.

    I'd probably try axing either Kor Sanctifiers or Jazal Goldmane to test this out.

    Angel of Condemnation 2WW
    Flying, vigilance
    2W, T: Exile another target creature. Return that card to the battlefield under its owners control at the beginning of the next end step.
    2W, T, Exert Angel of Condemnation: Exile another target creature until Angel of Condemnation leaves the battlefield. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)
    3/3

    Mind Twist isn't an option because I don't want to run it in my cube (although I do think it's one of the coolest otherwise), and I already have a Judge foil Entomb so I'm slightly less excited to replace a foil with another foil instead of upgrading a nonfoil to a foil. Maybe I'll see where Thoughtseize settles but plan for the Sphinx.

    So, now that the full suite of Invocations has been spoiled, I'm circling back to which one to add (I never actually got around to adding one last time). The previous frontrunner was Consecrated Sphinx.

    New options currently in the Cube:
    Armageddon (currently FTV)
    Forbid currently DCI foil, probably a hard pass
    Damnation currently PLC foil, hard pass although I really like this art
    Thoughtseize currently THS nonfoil, LRW foil is probably out of reach for me at this point
    Through the Breach currently CHK foil, middling here

    I guess the actual question is probably "should I slot in Armageddon or Thoughtseize instead of Consecrated Sphinx?"

    EDIT: A follow-up question: do these Invocations feel different enough for everyone else that 1 from AKH and one from HOU doesn't necessarily feel like too much of a departure of "1 per Masterpiece set"?

    Found via Reddit.

    Ramunap Excavator 2G
    Creature - Naga Cleric (R)
    You may play land cards from your graveyard.
    2/3

    Wildfire Eternal3R
    Creature - Zombie Jackal Cleric (R)
    Afflict 4 (Whenever this creature becomes blocked, defending player loses 4 life.)
    Whenever Wildfire Eternal attacks and isn't blocked, you may cast an instant or sorcery card from your hand without paying its mana cost.
    1/4

    EDIT: The Naga says "Draft Weekend", so is presumably the Release promo, while the Jackal is the Buy-a-Box promo.

    Return of the 3-set block and core sets! Nice! I am well pleased.
    Not really the return of the three-set block - it's three large sets that each are drafted alone, and may take place on different worlds (but may not). It's pretty much the exact opposite.

    Did we really need a fifth Gruul planeswalker, though? Boros, Golgari, and Rakdos are so far behind.

    posted a message on Amonkhet General Discussion
    I enjoyed this week's story well enough. Wasn't my favorite of this block (I really enjoyed the first few), but was still solid overall. As Spaz pointed out, it's interesting to see how this differs from his usual approach where the enemy is tangible. It's also interesting to see how his usual stance gets in the way of finishing the trial, to the point of him actually causing additional losses due to not being able to mesh with the setup of the Trial.

    The only jarring part to me was that he's able to hold his ground (even if only briefly) v Ulamog in the BFZ story but gets more or less tossed around by the ammit.

    So, I don't know Standard well, but isn't Mardu Vehicles just the unquestionably best deck with no reason to play ANYTHING else now?
    Mardu was the only other viable deck because it was fast enough to get out ahead of Copycat, but it's my understanding that it's easier to combat than Copycat. This should open the meta up.

    But 2 of the 4 cards you want unbanned (Earthcraft and Survival) are on the Reserved List.

    I'm not following.
    Your 4th point above was "Ban the Reserve List". So, you want to Unban Survival and Earthcraft and then immediately ban them again for being on the Reserve List. Unless of course you were talking about the list literally. That is, you want the list gone. But, since it has been brought up before, the assumption of your requests was that you wanted cards on the Reserve List banned (which is how I read it too) so things like the Duals would be banned. If you wanted the list gone, don't phrase it as you want the list itself "banned".
    Yeah, basically this. I read your post as "ban all cards on the Reserved List" when half of the cards you noted as wanting to unban are cards that are on the Reserved List.
