    I will immediately put this into my Zada, Hedron Grinder deck.

    What. What?

    This card is completely nuts. I'd build her immediately if she wasn't liable to get banned in two seconds. Oloro may be annoying, but he doesn't effect the gamestate nearly as much. Unlike the other three eminence generals, her eminence ability provides an absurd amount of value, doubling all the etb and self-sac effects on your wizards. Nobody will ever cast her, since tapping creatures to damage people can literally just be done by attacking. The combo potential here is massive, with cards such as Treasure Mage, Snapcaster Mage, Master of Waves, and Vendilion Clique all becoming stupid for the low price of one extra mana. Hell, I didn't even know Thalakos Deceiver existed until thirty seconds ago, but it sure is busted with Inalla! Not to mention that with Panharmonicon you get four times the effect. Expect her to leave the format even faster than Leovold did, people.

    Honestly, I like this latest frame (the Arjun one) quite a bit. Comes off as cleaner while still retaining the Magic style. It's certainly better then the one WotC greenlit for the Invocations. My only qualms are that the mana symbols make the art asymmetrical by covering a corner and that the supertype/type and the subtypes are in separate locations.

    You guys have already covered most of my thoughts on this story, but I will say this. Bolas' portrayal here strikes me as being similar to a much smarter Frieza (from DBZ) in his gleeful smack talk backed up by overwhelming power. This is a good thing.

    Amazing. We finally get Contraptions. The hype is real, now.

    In his article today, Rosewater basically confirmed that, yes, Hazoret does survive the events of Hour of Devastation.

    That would be sweet. It would probably be easier to use roll20, though.

    Actually, I just checked, and the Amonkhet edition is apparently out! If enough people are interested, I might be able to host. The only issue is that I'm only familiar with 4th edition, and have never played or DMed a game of 5th.

    I'm surprised no one had mention this yet, but this set would be the perfect place to reprint Oriss, Samite Guardian and the rest of the grandeur cycle. As such, they might be involved in the story, even just as bit parts. Who knows, maybe one of them might have their spark ignite and end up recruited by Ajani. I'd argue we need another black-aligned character, especially if Liliana ends up getting kicked out of the Gatewatch for duping them into demon hunting, but I don't think zombies like Korlash can have sparks.

    Ok, woah, I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite block, story-wise.

    Reminds me of Animus of Predation. Only bigger, and without you needing to draft with it.

    I predict many Princess Celestia alters will be made of this card.

    So, Gainsay+? Regardless, the concept and flavortext are hilarious.

    posted a message on Un-Set 3 Unstable
    Ok, so all of these announcements are amazing, pretty much exactly what I wanted overall. I'd missed out on the first two Un sets, and I'm dying to try one out. However, what I was hoping Wizards would do is make said set black bordered and standard legal while keeping all the ridiculous flavor intact. As an example, they could make a functional reprint of Nevermore, but change its name to 'The Banhammer' an make it an artifact. And also reprint silly black bordered cards such as Goblin Game and Phelddagrif.

    I'm hoping the new core sets are almost time spiral like. Not in complexity but in showing little bits of the past and future.
    I really like the implication that they're examining moments in the past.

    I'm leaning towards Urza's Sage like, telling older stories from the lore.


    Or maybe just reprints that evoke story moments. For example, Mercadia's Downfall is a good uncommon combat trick that gets insane in commander and probably wouldn't break standard.
