Quote from Drangsal83 »So Kaya‘s hidden agenda is to release all the Orzhov‘s ghosts, so that they can‘t be forced anymore to defend the plane against Bolas‘ Eternals?
The Internet was a revelation to me, I never imagined there are so many idiots on this planet.
Quote from MarkXero »Soooo... you exile a creature from a graveyard and get a spirit token for it. Which is letting the dead be dead... how exactly? Dead, but for the Orzhov? Really not quite grasping the flavour of this.
Mechanically though - yup; a permanent Zealous Persecution is a very welcome thing.
Quote from BigGrizzy »Curse of Death's Hold did see some fringe play when it was in Standard and this is easily enough better to be worth the extra white mana. My guess is it is either a 1-2 of in Abzan Tokens or a 1-2 of in Esper sideboards against it.
Quote from cyberium_neo »That is a HUGE loss of Orzhov power lore wise. Most of their power came from contracts that bound the dead to their servitude, now they’re all gone.
Not that I have any love for Orzhov, but this is the biggest change happened to any of the guild this far. What exactly will happen to Orzhov now?
Quote from pizzap »
You don't call "dying to removal" if the removal is more expensive in resources than the creature. If you have to spend BG (Abrupt Decay), or W + basic land (PtE) to remove a 1G, that is not "dying to removal". Strictly speaking Goyf dies to removal, but actually your removal is dying to Goyf.
Quote from Duke Daemon »I find this a terrible flavor fail as the Ghost Quarter fell onto Ravnica and now the dead live with the living on that plane. So she says they should stay dead by releasing them to the other districts? Its not like they will move on to a new life considering their after life is on Ravnica....
