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

    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.

    Can we just have Ms. Luhrs do all the stories from now on? Because damn.

    Even after all of the amazingly executed stuff regarding Bolas and the gate opening, the ending is what really blew me away. See, it takes the story of the plagues from the Old Testament and flips it on its head. In the original, Moses is unable to convince the pharaoh to have faith in God, and as such God turns the Nile river to blood as a show of omnipotence, punishing his insolence. In The Hour of Revelation, everybody already has faith in the God-Pharaoh, but then a demon shows up and pulls the wool from their eyes by doing the exact same thing to the Luxa. It works so well as a parallel, I'm practically squee-ing right now.

    I don't really mind the fact that Samut's card is really bad. What I do mind is that her card doesn't convey her speedster skills much. I wish her ult had been something like: 'You get an emblem with: After the first combat phase of each of your turns, untap all creatures you control. After that phase, there is an additional combat phase.'

    So. Let's talk about this. I, for one, thought that Ms. Luhrs did an amazing job here with the characterizations of the three leads, most notably Vraska, whose sole personality trait before now was just 'being mysterious'. I'm also a huge fan of the implications of the events as a whole, being that they foreshadow a major plot point for Ravnica 3: Where the hell is Jace, or whatever it ends up being called. Not to mention how brutal Mazirek's magic actually is. Seriously, having all of your organs slowly fail one by one as you're forced to feel everything up until the end would be terrifying. He's gonna put Master of Cruelties out of a job.

    So I'm starting to think creative has honestly forgotten that Gideon knows hieromancy. The Ammit scene would have been the perfect opportunity to have him use some to restrain the beast.

    That's a good point, but I suspect he can't use it as well when his convictions aren't 100% certain. If he's questioning his own morality, even on a subconscious level, how would he be able to enforce true justice?

    This is why we should all just play limited. Drafting is so much more fun anyway.

    Everyone talks about the new cyclers, but now im wondering, Is anyone trying out fuse cards with the new rule change on the CMC of them? We could now run some cmc 1 or 2 cards that arent cascading instead of living end.


    I don't play this deck, but I feel like this opens up some great possibilities now. Breaking // Entering now counts as an 8 drop in your library, and could be used to fill the 'yard with creatures the turn before casting a cascade spell. Mouth // Feed has the potential to draw buttloads of cards, and Insult // Injury would make for some crazy fast kills.

    Can't you just use Fabricate? Same mana cost, but it finds any of the combo pieces, assuming you use Bontu's Monument over Blood Artist.

    Stormcrag Elemental. How could a piece so undeniably imposing end up on a random limited uncommon?

    Most of what I wanted to say about today's story was already mentioned, but I will reiterate how high the general quality was. Great character writing, worldbuilding, and foreshadowing are all present. Also I feel sorry for Chandra. Girl can't catch a break.

    You're all looking at this card the wrong way. Think of it as a Thought Scour that occasionally counters things instead of milling you for two, and suddenly it becomes an amazing tempo card. Mark my words, this will see play.
