Quote from clan_iraqWhy is that sliver humanoid?
Quote from tgdgcI was really hoping they would not include the "you control" clause. Oh well... I guess this makes a better card, but it's just not as awesome.
Quote from Marek14 »See, this is the problem. You simply throw away nonsense too quickly. You do not recognize that nonsense has a time-tested place in game design.
Quote from SubbakI don't see anything that screams "fake", except the fact that this looks nothing like a sliver.
I know they've changed some iconic looks in the past (Boros angels lost their second pair of wings, Mirrodin Vedalken can now breathe air...), but I would be extremelyu surprised if they discarded the whole identity of the slivers, especially in a Core Set where they presumably would want reprints with old art.
So I'm highly doubtful of the authenticity.
Quote from Dechs KaisonWhat the Griselbrand, Xen. Just when I thought your stuff couldn't get any better, you churn out that Jeleva banner. It's gorgeous.
Quote from TheMechanixThose slivers so far suck, also their appareance is not very "sliverish", hope they give us some decent ones.
Quote from clan_iraq
Then we've got humanoid slivers? I mean, I think some of this falls into the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" category. Change for changes sake. And horribly understandable too, bringing back slivers just as they were would feel tired.
The "you control" clause is arguable, but the artistic direction is straight up awful, does anyone disagree with that? Humanoid was a terrible choice
Quote from azurarutlanReally? REALLY? Your choice of words sucks.
Slivers ALWAYS whip fans into a frenzy and drive sales up so putting them in a core set, which for the last several years seems to have been down, seems wise.
