    changing it is necessary but the direction they chose is just asinine.

    I don't care if the card is even good, because:

    Looks like WOTC is trying to cash in on the whole Pokemon TCG box set craze hahahahahahahaha.

    What's next, include 3 to 5 boosters, a foil alternate art promo of a planeswalker card, a jumbo sized version of the same card, and a little figurine representing that planeswalker?


    I'd buy it...

    ITS A SPIDER MONKEY. GET IT. GET IT?!?!?

    I will actually pay attention to spoilers for this. If they are more rules-oriented than some of the crazier unhinged cards, I'm definitely in.

    He also said he wouldn't retire until the Egypt set was released... WOOHOO THE TIME IS NOW

    I like the idea of crested sunmare being a plant for a wild west themed block though, that's neat.

    Or maybe they, y'know, just want to play a flavorful deck and have tutoring as a nice utility option while also offering cycling for decks that care about it.


    this is the first time I've ever disagreed with that forever-poignant signature of yours. I cannot fathom why this wasn't the same converted cost as diabolic tutor but with additional (B) requirements. This cost makes it distasteful except to a very small sliver of the constructed player base.

    And I can't say I'm keen to open this in a potential uncommon removal slot either way.

    The Planeswalker Uniqueness rule adds basically nothing to the game practically speaking, so I could see them just folding it altogether and just using the Legendary rule to replace it.
    I look forward to having Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope on the battlefield at the same time.


    I think he meant update the legend rule to include walkers so that they can have abilities that interact with their own one-at-a-time rule without needing a huge update

    From that second reddit image, I see:

    reprints of M10 checklands,

    rowdy crew 2RR Creature - human pirate

    Trample
    when rowdy crew enters the battlefield, draw three cards, then discard two cards at random. If two cards that share a card type were discarded this way, put ? +1/+1 counters on this.
    1/1
    Rarity unclear.

    Dreamcaller siren, 3UU Creature - N???? Pirate rare

    Flash
    FLying
    Dreamcaller siren can block only creatures with flying.
    When this enters the battlefield, if you control another pirate, tap up to two target nonland permanents.
    3/3

    Hostage taker 2UB Creature - Human Pirate Rare
    When hostage taker enters the battlefield, exile target artifact or creature until hostage taker leaves the battlefield. You may cast the card for as long as it remains exiled and you ? (likely: may use mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it)
    ?/?

    Deepthroat Shaman

    1G

    Whenever you cast ? put a +1+1 counter on this
    ?/?

    I suppose that's mildly less sinister.

    And not to mention there would be wastes areas in amonkhet if it has their home plane.


    its an entire plane of colourless-producing deserts?

    I'd be more than okay with it not being the origin plane of the eldrazi. I'd be more than okay with them not being gods expelled and adrift in the blind eternities.

    But that's the impression I got from the number 8 (5 colours + 3 absent whatsits??? are there any other established things that come in threes? There was a whole flavour text easter egg that referenced this as well), and the explicit references to Emrakul, chess and voices in the mind.

    It implies that the three gods that no longer exist here are the three titans ("I would devour all but I begin here"--as opposed to began or will begin) and that Nicol Bolas knew about them before, or perhaps as a result of, conquering the plane and supplanting the natural order.

    colour me not interested in more Eldrazi BS.
