Quote from MXM-194Apparently no.
Quote from findogulIt's an instant speed 5/5 trampler for 4. Wtf do you people want seriously? It has applications in populate/ above the curve beats decks, or in Bant control/ flash. I seriously think anyone mad at this card for any reason other than losing an attacker to instant speed wurm, should go home and make their own awesome card game and leave the rest of us alone.
Quote from NisIs this a sign that R&D is shifting looting into red?
Quote from Horseshoe_Hermit*organ music*
*horror theme special effects*
It's a sign the very fact that they have done so.
Red is the one color that would not loot! Arg! Thinking! Why don't these designers do more of it!
Red already has Wheel of Fortune. Riffs on that are fine. A card that means going out, finding more ideas, more resources, and using the resources at your disposal to derive them... that represents recombining ideas. That is artifice and transmutation in a way that no mechanic involving permanents ever has (and I think -could-) be captured. That represents thought in the purest sense. Looting is the icon of Blue. Draw to discard is more fundamentally Blue than drawing itself.
There are scarcely more obviously true rock-bottom components of pie design than loots for blue and burn for red.
Quote from Bogardan MageWhy do you think there can only be one interpretation of this mechanic? It's ridiculously abstracted, there's no artifice, there's no transmutation, there's no recombining ideas. There's just drawing and discarding cards. Thinking. How much have you done of it? Red's looting is, of course, quite different in flavour. What does red care about? It cares about the here and now, it's doesn't care what it throws away that might be useful later if its in the pursuit of something that's useful now. I can see you've got your heart set on this blue view of looting but please try to forget it for a moment to ask yourself if drawing and discarding really doesn't represent this very red ideal too?
Quote from The Meddling MageClearly FAKE. The art is taken from the cover of the magazine, and the resolution is way too low for the standard card quality these days. Don't get your hopes up, chaps.
The Internet was a revelation to me, I never imagined there are so many idiots on this planet.
Quote from FluxjeGod if this card is real, people dont realise how incredibly strong it really is. Worst case scenario it is a 2 deep red filter with buyback, best case scenario it draws you 2 cards for 1 cmc and you can buyback it for 3 cmc.
The Grixis deck that is currently run at worlds is going to abuse the living daylight out of this card.
Welcome to the new std brainstorm.
Quote from Nirvava »you can generally tell the easiest road to victory by how many players congregate on it; and the road of counterspells/control has been the freeway of choice in magic for quite some time.
Quote from photodyer »What I find offensive is not that Wizards is endeavoring to make the game more accessible, but the attitudes of elitists who act as though no one of any age should show their face in the Magic public without first having mastery over the complexities of the game.
Quote from Tapped Out
In other news, I ate an entire rotisserie chicken today, by myself, in celebration of veganism.
IDW Publishing and Wizards of the Coast have been working together for a while with the Dungeons and Dragons comic, and now with the Magic: The Gathering comic series. One of the hooks with the Magic: The Gathering comic is an exclusive card for use with the upcoming Magic: The Gathering – Dark Ascension set.
The companies sent Major Spoilers the first look at the exclusive playable card.
Quote from EvanusI'm skeptical. Not calling fake at all...
The art has nothing to do with the card title.
Burning Vengeance is an annoying deck to play against. It's absolutely non-interactive. I thought WotC was trying to steer clear of things like that.
I *hope* this is fake...but I won't be surprised if it isn't.
