  • posted a message on List of all tokens for each deck?
    Quote from Jason Justis »

    I had the decks in front of me and were flipping over the tokens in my hand as I was making this list, so I'm 99.9% sure it's accurate. The only way it's not is if I got a faulty copy. I wasn't missing any cards that I could tell though.

    I just cracked all five of my decks excited to see double sided tokens and mine all line up with what you posted so I think we can call that list 100%.

    I think it was an ace idea to do double sided for the decks, it makes it easier to have proper tokens (reef worm I'm looking at you), and should keep the board state much cleaner.

    I haven't opened any of my decks yet (waiting to get the other 2) but the store I work at has a green deck with the oversized card upside down in the box.

    At first I was very confused by the art because I thought I was looking up through a portal of somekind. The horns started to look like all kinds of pointy arms and I started to wonder "slivers" or "Eldrazi" depending on the scale.

    Now that I see the wings and that they are horns (not arms) then Yes we are looking at Ugin, why else would he be getting mentioned in card names and flavor texts if he wasn't coming back.

    Personally I don't care if Ugin is a planeswalker card (red could use some diversity) or a Legendary Creature (Yea! new dragon Commander) part of me wants him already.

    It depends on Sarkhan... whether he is RB Sarkhan the mad or RG Sarkhan Vol. His clothes suggest he is RB but story hints suggest he is aligned with Temur which is Green Red Blue suggesting he will be RG.

    the images are in this thread if you want to look.

    We were told at the SDCC panel that Sarkan was a part of the Mardu before leaving.

    +1 for Nagas. 100% likely.

    This spoiled art also strongly hints at Rakshasas.

    Really looking forward to learning more about this plane.

    Naga are a part of the Sultai.
    We are also getting Rakasha that are said to be "at home in a cat or demon deck" (paraphrased from watching the panel last night).
    Quote from Mowagh »
    It's funny, I told my boyfriend that I wondered if this set would have nagas as soon as it was announced. I'll be so happy if one of my favorite fantasy races finally makes it to Magic. <3

    Also, is the Sultai khan male or female? I originally thought female, but it seemed more male in the trailer.

    The Sultai Khan is FEmale.

    Quote from orlouge82 »

    No, we'll see them. Mark Rosewater gave his trademark "Maybe :)" response to a question about them I asked back in January:

    "Maybe :)" means "yes, they will be coming out at some point in the future." Khans seems like as good a plane as any to introduce the allied-colored swords.

    It's also Maro and the swords could just as easily be in Commander 2014, Commander 2015, or next year's summer release and he would give the same answer. Heck the swords could be nothing more then scribble's on a notepad in The Pit which means we won't see them for 2 years.

    All "Maybe :)" means is that they haven't forgotten about those cards and they are something that a set or product could use sometime in the future.

    Quote from Rafig »
    No, odric only triggers if you attack with two other creatures and in magic when we say attack we mean declared as an attacker and whatever you bring it isn't declared as an attacker.

    Short version, ya too late.

    Okay, Odric could be worded clearer but that's why I double checked.
    I thought maybe I could stack the Captain's ability above Odric but was fairly sure it was too late.

    Preeminent Captain
    Odric, Master Tactician

    So I attack with Odric, the Captain, and one other creature. I use the Captain to put a forth attacker out, do I get to use Odric's ability, or is Odric an attack trigger and thus too late?

  • posted a message on [[KTK]] Blogatog reveals the primary color focus of each of the wedge clans
    it means R&D still has some creative boldness. they aren't complacent to just stick with easy and familiar path. so this way of doing wedge is great. also continues the emphasis on allied pairs as well.

    however, my concern is the faction themes don't quite match up. e.g. red faction is about speed and represents the wings. does that mean there will be a lot of red common fliers? white and black get common fliers sure. but we usually link wings with blue and white, so tying it with the blue/white(/red) faction seems more appropriate. even izzet has been known to play with flying. speed is tied to flash and haste, so green/red(/blue) feels right. also trample=momentum, and these three colors have the most tramplers. also ruthlessness feels more like red/white/black faction. these are the main colors of mass destruction. and so on.

    anyway, let's see how the cards shape up to fit their clans.

    The only way I see the "red" faction getting a lot of common red fliers would be if they managed to keep Maro completely out of the loop for designing Khans. Red is defined by it's lack of flyers and gets them only as big creatures and usually at rare (dragon/phoenix). I could see them having the most synergy with the dragons when they return but they won't get cheap mono-red flyers.

    Here's a few things I'm hoping.

    One box with all four decks contained within it.
    Print numbers much like what we see for DD now.
    Distribution to the big box stores just like the first time around for each of the decks.

    The reasoning being that I'm sure these are being printed to help bring down the cost not only of the first dual decks but also of the cards contained within them. Sending these to only card shops wouldn't do that.

    I'm also hoping that it being 1 box and that these decks were already created and would thus require much less work to create a second time that we could see a price point more like $60.
