    It feels pretty boring, just something slapped together that hasn't quite been done yet.
    From what I've seen of the next set (and the last one), everything's pretty boring lately. I picked the right blocks to sit out! :p

    Definitely enjoying the card, and I think it may be more than just a casual junk rare. Might take a while though, there's billions of 'em out there right now. Smile

    You'd think a legendary artifact so easy ( 1 mana ) to build would either be tiny, or simple, or low quality. But this is a large, ornate, golden item. One mana, wow... I'll take ten! :p

    But I really love the effect, and your writeup of the history. Creative Smile

    I do like it Smile
    Just not certain on the cost, but playtesting would help decide that. It's probably close anyway Thumbs Up

    Wall is a good creature type. I don't think it should be the only creature type to get defender, as it was in the early days of Magic, but it's definitely legit. I like the 3 in the OP, and agree it makes sense without being a full cycle. Green and black really aren't big Wall colours imo. White and red seem like the main ones.

    Quote from Wildfire393 »
    Wizards spoiler policy, as of now, appears to be this:

    Release a handful of cards four weeks out from release
    Spoiler articles on Mothership and spoiler cards on partner sites three weeks and two weeks out from release
    Full spoiler released two Fridays before release
    Unofficial spoilers are terrible, awful, no good, very bad

    I like how it used to be:
    MTGN (and later for a short time, MTGS) posts the entire spoiler 6 weeks before the release, after about 2 months of slowly discovering new cards, piecing together hints, and trying to figure out if "leaks" are legit or fakes. A lot of hype built up and the community was huge and strong. Smile

  • posted a message on Discussion Thread for 'the Gay Kings' MTGS Response
    I too feel this moderation was in very bad taste. To stifle the use of the word gay as an attack on other members is great - in fact, I was the person who started that rule, about a decade ago.
    But to stifle (and punish) the use of the word gay when that is EXACTLY the correct description of the characters on the Magic card in question? That's homophobic!
    I was punished in the "kings" thread for making a play on words using the word "butt", based on the creature having 8 toughness (commonly referred to as "butt"). A moderator claimed I had made a flame attack. Against who, a Magic card? All gay people? Of course not. The creature depicts gay men, and that's awesome. My brother would LOVE that card. And no, that's not a flame attack against my brother.
    We should mature a little. It's 2016 and it's okay to be gay. It's even okay to correctly point out that a Magic character is gay, or use the word "butt". There's literally no harm to anyone.
    The harm is when overzealous moderators stifle discussion and then attempt to cover up their poor decision by claiming "it's better to overmoderate than undermoderate". In this case, it was hurtful and wrong to moderate. An apology to the affected members (and the gay community) should be made.

    Yeah, instant Wheel. And he helps you get another copy into the graveyard so you can do it again when ready.

    Youch! I like it. Not only is it Holy Day, but prevents ALL damage to you. And you get a massive creature out of the deal. And it just keeps getting bigger if you prevent other damage later? Cool Thumbs Up

    A lot like Proliferate (Steady Progress) but a lot more extreme. And obviously if you can bounce this guy you can get silly.

    Hmmmf, weird name.
    But that ability is pretty dope. A source of plenty of damage over a few turns. I couldn't care less about Partner.

    ETB tapped really hurts it. It's so sweet when a mana artifact replaces some of its cost right away. This is still playable in certain decks, but not all that abuseable most of the time.

    It's large!

    But not necessarily in charge. Frown

    10/10s are fun, but that mana cost isn't. If your opponent has enough creatures to make this castable, he's going to have enough creatures to chump block it. Booo.
