    Yeah, other PWs have made flying tokens (one not mentioned yet is Sorin, Solemn Visitor), but this is the first PW that makes flying tokens while gaining loyalty. I think...


    Yeah, that's what I was getting at.
    It's the first flying tokens as a + ability.
    I kind of assumed they deemed that too good or something,
    so I'm glad to finally see it on a card.

    Apparently black gets Flash at common now?


    Yeah, the absence of Deathtouch makes that feel like a slight bleed to me.

    The other guy that pings anything for one also feels wrong to me.

    I like how every 1 you sink into activating this translates into 2 more they have to pay to recast their commander...
    each time Grin

    Holy crap, the first PW that makes flying tokens,
    and it's not WU?!

    I know five mana is a lot,
    but Tezzeret has a ton of potential.

    Big money reprints are great, but I also love it when they reprint old, cool cards like this for the first time.


    Yeah, I have this in a couple of decks and will be very happy to replace them with Modern versions.

    Oh man, if the threshold were 4 life this would be amazing with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

    It's probably still really good with her.

    While no Austere Command, this looks like a strong wrath for Commander.


    It's actually a very worthy stand-in, IMO.
    It may be less flexible, but it does the same basic job for one less mana.

    And it's Vaevictis Asmadi. Man, seeing a u is annoying. (Mostly because I can't help but think of "victus" meaning "defeated".)


    Fun fact! Vaevictis' name comes from the Latin locution "vae victis", which literally means "woe to the conquered". It is a famous phrase which, according to tradition, was spoken by Gauls' leader Brennus, who had been successful in besieging Rome. As condition to leave the city alone he had famously demanded a quantity of gold capable of counterbalancing a weight he had provided, but when the citizens actually procured that much gold, he threw his sword on the scales as a way to demand even more, and when told that was unfair he answered with the phrase. It was his way of saying that he didn't recognize the concept of fairness, he only recognized the might of the victor.

    So yeah, this is where Vaevictis got his name from. His effect does feel fitting of this whole idea, doesn't it?


    No, silly—
    It's a reference to the PS1 classic The Legacy of Kain.

    The artwork isn't my cup of tea either, but to say it's "SJW" is kind of weird, especially when the set's walkers could be the poster children for the Hitler Youth. Further, it's kind of lame to make a claim and support it with absolutely nothing.


    I say the problem for him is Pir. Junevile AND black. So, apparently, because of that, the entire set became a "SJW" fan service.

    Obviously I'm just guessing, but that was the first thing that come up to mind.


    That's what comes to my mind as well,
    which is odd, considering War Machine is also a black character.

    When were the Commander decks made for this purpose? It's not often we get a reprint that costs more than $20 in them and since they have to follow one or several themes we don't get random high costing reprints like in this set.
    But there were at least two decks in recent Commander editions with the counters subtheme (Ezuri and Atraxa) where Doubling Season would fit right in. And it wasn't as expensive back than, too.


    Uh, what?! DS has been over $20 for a long, LONG time.
    It was barely below $20 just after being reprinted in the first Modern Masters.

    Why does this look like a black weaker Faith's reward


    My first thought was Grim Return that hits everything.

    OH MY GOD AM I DREAMING?!?

    Has this *finally* been reprinted in Modern frame?
    It's going to be hard for this set to surpass this, for me.

    Assist is basically identical to a house rule I used for multiplayer decades ago.

    Dear lord

    They don't have basic land types and yet these will be permanent staples in edh


    In the way that Glacial Fortress and friends are.
    These could have been new Alpha Duals, but noooooo!

    They are pretty cool, but they won't be super expensive unless they're never reprinted.
