    Contests aren't priority right now, so they will stay in recess by the moment (we're working on other stuff right now). Still, when these come back (they will), we want to mantain them as a monthly thing. There's a high chance of them to be as described in post #180.

    Hello

    Would you consider checking my list? I'm not sure where the PTP list ends, so it would be cool to know it. Smile

    I'm also an alterer, so perhaps you want to check my altered art gallery. I'll send the link to you by PM. Smile

    I know you mean something different than this, but it's awfully disconcerting to see "fixed" and "Genesis Hydra" in the same sentence. The card combines elements of cascade and uncounter-ability to putting a permanent into play. While it's probably true that a big green X spell in the core set makes another big green X spell unlikely, I...wouldn't use the word "fixed."
    With that therm, I meant WotC may be saying something in the line of: "Yes, we're bringing back convoke. No, we're not bringing back Chord of Calling. But you know what? We're going to give you something similar. Something that abides much better to our current power level line and that also fits much better in our thought of making everything a creature if posible."
    Of course those cards aren't the same story, but both of them does put a permanent form your library by paying X mana, at Green. And yes, I meant exaclty what you said: Two big X spells with similar effects at the same core set doesn't seem very likely. Perhaps, "fixed" wasn't an accurate therm to represent my thoughts, but it seems that I've used it good enough to sugest that I didn't wanted to use it for it's regular meaning, but more like a metaphora. Still, thanks for your comments Wink

    I think Genesis Hydra and Chord are different enough that Wizards could justify printing both of them. One is a creature that digs. The other is an instant with convoke that tutors.
    I've meant GH as a fixed Chord in the maning that GH could be seen as a Chord that goes at sorcery speed but leaves a body behind in compensation, and can't tutor the entire library but as deep under your top as you can pay for. That seems a pretty core set-esque versión for a Chord, IMO.

    Remember that people who write preview articles get the full card list beforehand.
    That's exactly my concern...

    I feel that Genesis Hydra actually makes itself a sort of a proof that the chord could haven't been included in M15. I mean, GH is basically a fixed Chord of Calling from my perspective. It would be weird to include two cards with similar effects in the same color and rarity spot(Rare/mythic Green tutoring for X). Does any of you reminds of a similar addition in the latests core sets? (similar effect at same color and rarity). I know that R and M aren't the same, but Rare and Mythic are closer than C/U or U/R.

    Seriously, I've arrived to this post because my original intention was to open a thread with the following question: "Could Genesis Hydra be a clear hint meaning Chord of Calling isn't going to be reprinted?". Thing is I have Chord and not sure about trading away or not.

    EDIT: For example, I've been ofered a playset of promo Restoration Angels for a Chord, and I feel very very tempted of sealing that deal.
    Another weird thing is that SCG has lowered down Chord's Price by 5 bucks and added some pieces to a stock that before appeared as empty. Just wondering why...

    It seems it has been a millenia since the last time I posted something here... This was a pretty damaged FoW I was comissioned to restore. Here's the result:

  • posted a message on removing alters from cards?
    Basically, what Gals said in post #10.

    As longer as paint stands sticked to a card, as harder becomes to remove it. Also, if the guy used oil médium to créate color transitions (highly probable), it's pretty imposible to remove the pigments from the original painting layer of the card. Just try to find the "boyfriend" for that alter and move it on to buy other stuff. I wouldn't even try to un-alter that money piece.
