Quote from Melkor »I was just coming here to post about that. After ROE, I was really excited for more Eldrazi. after BFZ and Shadows blocks, i never want to see them again, they completely forgot what Eldrazi were. ZEN and WWK were fantastic sets, let's hope Wizards gets at least a little bit of that. if they botch this as bad as BFZ block, i hope they just destroy the plane.
Quote from theMarc »PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.

The second one, the 'monster set' smbol looks a lot like Lorwyn block, that could be exciting if that kind of power and creativity is around
Quote from Wraithe »They made it sound very much like it was a kaiju world. Moreover, Mark Rosewater said on the stream that you get to "build your own monsters". So I'm guessing it's some sort of put out a kaiju that's pretty basic and hard to kill, then throw more and more things on it to make it something unique to your deck and/or this particular game.

Sure. Like Kaladesh made you feel like an inventor. Except that the only mechanic that made you feel like an inventor, Fabricate, barely appeared in Kaladesh and wasn't even in Aether Reborn.
Now, maybe if this Monster Set has Host and Augment or something very similar, then we're talking. Otherwise, you're not actually making anything.
Quote from Mockingbird »One thing to note about the Eldrazi is that they’ve been marketing failures in each iteration they’ve existed. They essentially ruined Zendikar 1 drafting (which is a pretty big deal because drafting moves a lot more packs than just straight selling alone); Emrakul one also got booted from commander because the only card that format needs less is Griselbrand. Eldrazi 2 overran every format except Standard, then Emrakul managed claim Standard to by being the cherry on top of the mistake now called Kaladesh block. The end result is one point on another in the past decade(ish) there has been a problem in every format that could be tied back to Eldrazi cards.
Like, maybe we see Emrakul again one day because the story demands it, but through and through, the Eldrazi tribe as a whole has nothing but bad publicity behind them because they were a problem in of themselves or helped push an existing problem over the top. And this is coming from a guy who’s favorite tribe is the Eldrazi.
Quote from Ritokure »If I had to guess, Ikoria seems to be the "not-Kamigawa" Japanese inspired block MaRo has been teasing for years. More "Modern Japan Sentai Kaiju World" and less "Traditional Japan Spirit Samurai World", just like Eldraine is less Lorwyn "Fairtyale Fair Folk Celtic Horrors World" and more "Fairytale Disney Reboot Arthurian World".
Return to Theros is like "you don't say" and Zendikar is a big meh for me. Meanwhile, the words "Teferi Core Set" just made me very nervous.
