Quote from Creedmoor »Hopefully the Gods have the new God-Eternal ability... I love that effect more that indestructible. It feels a little more fair and also emulates how they can't just be exiled.
Quote from AtraxianShade »Quote from Creedmoor »Hopefully the Gods have the new God-Eternal ability... I love that effect more that indestructible. It feels a little more fair and also emulates how they can't just be exiled. Don't know about that. The only way you can get rid of them now is by hand manipulation, by countering them or taking control of them, which leaves only 2 colours capable of dealing with them reliably (blue and black).
All other colours just delay them, with red and green having the short end of the stick because they remove through damage.
That doesn't really sound like a good mechanic.
EDIT: may be a little more fair than the Hour of Destruction Gods mechanic, but that's about it.
Quote from AtraxianShade »With the current card-draw, card filtering, scry, explore and surveil they seldom take 3 turns to come back. Even red can pull it off. Well timed light up the stage and your god card can be cast the turn right after being killed.
Which all in all makes your "not trying hard enough" remark pretty pointless.
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.
Quote from fettpett »Mark will be making the fall set announcement at his SDCC panel. It’s incredibly irritating that they are not streaming it on Twitch, nor recording it. Like, come the f*** on WotC, get your crap together.
Quote from Manite »God's favor or blessing would be meant to play the role of Devotion. I am intrigued by the idea of divine blessings working like city's blessing. Reminds me of the Blessings from Skyrim.
For example, the white God could say "When you attack with three or more creatures, you gain ~'s favor" and "As long as you have ~'s favor, attacking creatures you control get +2/+2 and have indestructible".
Quote from leslak »Having some creature type matters of tribal element also fits with one of the themes of modern horizons. I guess something like Cost reduction, +p/+t, and extra abilities based on the quantity of creatures types would be a start (with a limit)
A god that gains +p/+t for each creature type among creatures you control but with a cap (of say +7+7) could fit I guess.
Quote from Flamebuster »I personally think a god's stats and abilities should be only as powerful as the devotion of their followers. Because, in "real life," a god is only as potent as the number of people who believe in them.
So maybe a tie-in to devotion or # of creatures of a specific type and/or something else maybe? That'd be cool if we do go that route in the next (few) set(s).
Quote from SpeedGrapher »It's a knight and king based set. Go look at the uncommons in core set 2020 Skyknight Vanguard. There are a ton of preview cards.
Quote from BlazingRagnarok »Quote from SpeedGrapher »It's a knight and king based set. Go look at the uncommons in core set 2020 Skyknight Vanguard. There are a ton of preview cards.What does that card have to do with Eldraine? It's quite clearly a Ravnican of the Boros guild, evidenced by the fist symbols plastered all over the thing.
