    Didn't they do something like this for Ravnica with the guilds? They had them ranked based on players wins. I don't think it had anything story related to it but it was interesting seeing each guild ranked, I think one guild(izzet?) led the majority of the time.

    That was awsome, and if they did the same for the factions with the city at stakes it would have been cool too, but might have made people feel forced to go play when they don't want to or their voice won't be heard. Or that their voice won't be heard due to being too weak.


    UR and UW were the top two when they polled last time. If I remember correctly all the Ux guilds were highly rated. I believe it was based on what people liked rather than wins. But information like that is somewhat biased, it's known that more enfranchised players tend to lean toward blue and newer ones to Red and Green so that can always skew results of surveys.

    Your cards in Commander should either be powerful, efficient, or synergistic (all if possible). There are over 20 years of cards to filter through and Commander is a complicated format for someone new to the game as a whole. I commend your diving right into the deep end of the game.

    I'd suggest giving a look to http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/204408-commander-decklist-database for some commonly used cards in similar decks. Don't feel beholden to looking exactly at decks utilizing your specific commander as you can get a ton of value from just seeing common cards within your colors.

    They mean you Shared Fate as a Mirrormirror #2.

    Go full singleton with Tainted Pact. Also add Necrologia.

    You should also find a way to get X into your hand so you can use it when you switch bodies.

    So I figured out my X deck. I'll have a ton of tutors, draw and counterspells. No creatures, manlands or ways to shuffle in my graveyard so basically absolutely nothing even resembling a win condition. Then I can get X exiled permanently and "win" with Mirror Mirror.

    The tricky part will be whether or not I have a way to recur Mirror Mirror. If I do they can Mirror Mirror me back but if I don't and it gets stopped I'm completely screwed.


    You're a beautiful person.

    Begin the wild speculation!!!

    I'll start: They've added a 5th person to the RC.


    My hopes are legalizing Un-Commanders.

    Urgh, mana drain??? Why???

    That card only sees play on VINTAGE and on some multiplayer commander lists. Blergh.

    EDIT: I like how my posts are in stark opposition to MrMime133 back-to-back, heh.


    Seriously what is wrong with some of you. They could give out gold bullion and some would bitch.
    Oh yeah, please tell me in how many decks that so needed reprint will slot in.


    I could always use another.

    I am most pleased with this story. That said, it might have to do with how I enjoy a particular subset of fiction... and this definitely felt like reading about what happens after an Imperium colony wakes up a Necron Tomb World.


    In the grim darkness of Amonkhet there is only Bolas.

    Excellent story. It would be a farce to call a set Hour of Devastation without the brutalizing of everything the plane holds dear.

    I'm a little shocked at how people are so against it. Not every story needs or should be about the gatewatch or extreme advancements of the plot. There need to be slower setting defining narratives to make us care about the worldbuilding they do and not just the big named characters.

    If you have it then run it, but don't feel you need to get it. It's better in cutthroat combo decks than anything else, it does too much self-damage if the game runs long.

    Silly cube game with Airithne: she casts Primeval Titan, I go next and cast Mass Mutiny go steal it, then sac it to Eldritch Evolution. On her next turn she Reanimates it then copies it with Progenitor Mimic. Man that card is dumb.
    Primeval Titan is a completely fair and balanced card in this format.


    So is recurring nightmare.

    But abolishing the reserved list would mean that MaRo would quit, and quite frankly, I believe they value him to much as an employee and the "face of M:TG" that we won't see it gone for a long time.
    I don't understand this quote. Why would he quit? He has been very vocal about believing the Reserve List is a mistake and, looking back, he has stated he wishes they hadn't implemented it. Why would someone against the Reserve List quit if they got rid of it?

    On topic: I hope they get rid of it too, but I don't believe that is what they are leaning towards


    He has stated, on multiple occasions that although he believes it to be a mistake, if they abolish it he will hand in his resignation the next day. But he is no longer allowed to discuss the matter, and as such will refuse to answer further questions about it on his blog.
    I have read his blog posts regularly and have never heard him say this. However, he has other channels of communication so I could have missed it. Do you have a source of him saying this?


    I have read his blog nearly religiously for years now. Last time he mentioned it was over a year ago, and I ain't searching through over five thousand pages. >.<


    Are you sure you didn't misremember the post? I don't think he's ever made that claim.

    If you're incapable of citing your source then don't make controversial claims.

    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 think it's better if people start playing the 1v1 list in paper rather than supporting the trash that is MTGO.

    Rememeber, every penny that is given to MTGO justifies WotC stifling card design and catering rules around its terrible inadequacies.
