    Vivid desert seems good. Maybe a little on the strong side? Fine design.

    Mercenary Lands is a oddly specific and unrelated effect for a land.

    Sunset Lighthouse is very interesting, though maybe hard to balance. Legendary might be better? Not sure.

    Stricken City is fine, if perhaps a little generic

    Why make this 1 mana , tap symbol for two and not just tap symbol for one? Am I missing something here?

    The addition of a mirror counter is unnecessary, should be worded like Praetor's Grasp
    i.e.
    3 mana , tap symbol : Exile a card from your hand or graveyard. You may play that card for as long as it remains exiled.


    I know the mirror counter technically isn't needed, but the mirror counter is essentially flavour text for Jodah's character.

    Not a fan of that idea.

    As for the colors, I was considering making him Bant, but I tried Azorius first.

    Bant would be much more appropriate.
    EDIT: you could have the ability be an off-colour activation

    The ability to exile cards from your hand with this is an odd choice because it seems like a pretty niche situation before you'd pay mana just to move a card from your hand to exile, where you are equally able to cast it.
    I'm not sure it's worth the extra couple words.

    More importantly, this doesn't seem like a white blue ability. I think you need some black or green here with or without the current colours.

    This probably wants to be written:
    At the beginning of your upkeep, you may move a time counter from Essence of the Hourglass onto another target creature, that creature gains vanishing.

    Three reasons
    -The vanishing sticks around after Essence of the Hourglass dies, so the time counters will actually matter a lot more
    -You can't put time counters on your other creatures that do nothing. It feels like they should get vanishing too if you do that and it's not like you want to do this anyway so the added disadvantage doesn't really matter.
    -It's shorter

    I also think this should be part black like others have suggested. The card also seems pretty weak given how slow and how easy to kill it is. Could easily be:

    Essence of the Hourglass blue mana black mana red mana
    Creature - Spirit (R)
    Flying
    Vanishing 3
    At the beginning of your upkeep, you may move a time counter from Essence of the Hourglass onto another target creature, that creature gains vanishing.
    3/3

    WotC has confirmed they will not be doing 'shake-up bannings' and that 'we plan to manage the format as we do now'.

    Found in here- http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/daily-magic-update/update-2017-07-20

    The reason for the walk back may be because of the introduction of the play design team.

    Wasn't there already a plane with dinosaurs on it? Kind of like khanar was Tarkir or something?

    Muraganda, I thought. Too lazy to google.

    Muraganda is correct. And yes, Ixalan appears to be the replacement for Muraganda.

    More than one plane can have dinosaurs. Muraganda was Stone Age World, which is wildly different from Mesoamerican Pirates World.

    It's possible, but unlikely I think. If they were going to do Muraganda. I think they would have done Muraganda. I'm skeptical that Muraganda could be exciting enough with dinosaurs having already been a thing. The addition of ice age megafauna plus cavemen stuff maybe could sell it, but that could still be in Ixalan, we don't know yet.

    At the very least it can be adventure set, like pre-Eldrazi Zendikar.
    Though I don't really like the idea of mixing three worlds from short list into one - at the first glance it feels like mash up, you know, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and so. But it can be better than expected - less specific stereotype worlds, more original ones.

    Pirates and jungle tribes are real world linked, so that should fit perfectly fine. Dinosaurs makes sense for a tropical adventure and exploration world. It's less of a mashup than it might seem and more of a world of different aspects.

    Nice trailer! Loving the look of the insectile horror.
    Also, is the intro Bolas card called Nicol Bolas, the Destroyer?

    The deceiver. I made a thread about the card and the abilities and cost have been determined from the image, but the loyalty is hidden so we'll have to wait on that.

    There's fifteen cards, I'm guessing all five flipwalkers and then approx. fifty fifty INN block/SOI block cards, favoring INN if either.
    Meld will probably be there from SOI

    Don't forget half of these cards are going to be new.

    Can we expect new legendary creatures to supplement commander or would that be too complicated? Is there a precedent for legendary creatures being created or reprinted for core sets?

    Yes. M2015 had a number.

    Do we even know that for sure?

    Yes. Approximately at least.
    "The set will be roughly half new cards and half reprints"

    I'm interested to see what the new core sets are going to be like. They are apparently more focused on newer players, this may be related to the fact that they will "also have a stronger integration with the sample decks, Planeswalker Decks, and Deck Builder's Toolkit, allowing for an easier transition between the products".

    +3 each opponent loses three life unless that player sacrifices a nonland permanent or discards a card.
    -3 Destroy target creature. Draw a card.
    -11 Nicol Bolas deals 7 damage to each opponent. You draw 7 cards,

    Yeah, that looks about right.

    So nothing too surprising in the announcements today, except for the new UN set and the FTV flippers. We kinda already knew Ixalan has dinos, however we're getting pirates as well (wooo?). Rivals was clearly the second set. It was inevitable to return to Dominaria for the 25th anniversary, everyone could figure that much :p Iconic Masters is kinda confirmed to be underwhelming because they're also releasing Masters 25 next spring. Duel deck with goblins again? Meh. Merfolks are fine, but they could've chosen some other tribal race instead of goblins tbh. The dame reavling stuff for Ixalan still wants to say something about a product related to the 25th celebration but the guy stops her, wonder what that is...

    It's the unset. Mark reveals it at the end.
    There will be more at Hascon, but presumably card and set info, not product announcements.
