    In silver bordered games, a changeling would now be a Vampire Vampyre. In addition to the usual silliness. (Giant Dwarf, Worm Wurm, Mutant Ninja Turtle, etc.)
    Well, wurms aren't the same as worms. Maybe if they'd spelled it wyrm, it would make more sense.
    I wasn't saying that they were the same, I was just listing funny creature type combinations.

    In recursive chess, one piece can capture another only after beating it in a game of recursive chess.
    Turtles all the way down.

    I would think that you could only name the Keyword and not the variable of the keyword. Like you could call "Protection" but you can't declare from what. So only the keywords that don't rely on additional defining would be useful?
    The article explicitly mentions naming Soulshift 7 or different kinds of Protection.

    Seriously people, check the official MtG homepage. Nine times out of ten, the questions people have about a new card spoiled on the mothership are answered in the spoiler article. For black-bordered and silver-bordered sets both.

    This art doesn't look like Planeswalker card art though...
    She's showed up in the flavor text of so many burn spells, it's 'bout time she started showing up in the art of them, too.

    Goddammit, not another one.

    I think that's the joke. That they keep functionally reprinting this exact friggin' card.

    Oh my God. WotC actually remembered that other zombie token arts exist, and didn't just reuse the same one they always do.
    I own 27 different Zombie tokens. What are you talking about? They mix it up each year.
    The Lucas Graciano one from original Innistrad. While it's true that every Standard-legal set gets new token art, supplemental stuff like Duel Decks and Commander decks reuse old art for the tokens more often than not, as did Core Sets. And they frequently reuse the exact same aforementioned art. The lack of variety is annoying on its own, considering how many different illustrations they have to choose from. To make matters worse, though, is the fact that Lucas Graciano's zombie art is bland and ugly; it's neither memorable, like the Tarkir zombies, nor pleasing to look at, like the Cynthia Sheppard Innistrad zombie. I've yet to hear anyone say that that art is their favorite; most people I've talked to would rather they reuse just about any other art.

    Yeah, unfortunately, while it's far better than either of the generic ones they typically use, this one isn't as good as some of the older art such as the Mirrodin Besieged one, the Shards of Alara one, or one of the original Innistrad ones (which is one of the best non-flavor-specific pieces of zombie art out there).
    It's not the best, but the variety is welcome, at least.

    Also, while I can agree with your other two choices, I gotta say, Alara zombies? Really? Ew.
    It's great because of the ick factor! The thing looks disgusting, and perfectly captures what a Grixis zombie should look like
    I'll definitely give it that. But that doesn't change the fact that the thing is unpleasant to look at, IMO.

    I love how his wrench is holding another, smaller, wrench. I legitimately chuckled at that.

    This is probably the first time I've ever responded to the Storm Crow meme with anything other than mild irritation, so congrats to WotC for that.
    Quote from Cyborg Huey »
    I feel bad admitting this, but I'm sure other people don't know either so I'll just ask, what the hell is the meme surrounding Storm Crow? I've heard people joke about it for years, but never have I actually understood what they were making fun of about it. Can someone please, in all seriousness, enlighten me about this?
    IIRC, the story goes that, when Alliances was in Standard, blue decks were dominating; the joke went that any given blue card was better than any given nonblue card, if only because blue cards can be pitched to Force of Will. Storm Crow was a blue card, and it was printed in the same set as Force of Will, so it had to be good!

    Or as the hints say, the 'sprocket' thing _is_ the back of the Contraption cards and you use your Contraption side-deck as the 'indicators' of which Contraption is under which sprocket.

  • posted a message on Clues for 3rd visit to Ravnica
    Well, during RtR, they set the stage for a guilds vs guildless conflict, so it's pretty obvious that they always intended to have a third Ravnica block eventually. But I don't think there's any particularly compelling evidence that they have a set time frame yet for when that will happen. The Teysa story was just as likely to remind everyone that there's still dangling plot threads on Ravnica, rather than an explict hint that there would be a return block soon, especially considering how long it's been.
