    European folk legends and myths and some tropes are scattered between Lorwyn, Ice Age/Cold Snap, Innistrad and even Ravnica to some extent (except in its abominable War of the Sparks crossover). I bet here they will just go to High Fantasy, with that storybook mechanic being a fixed version of Epic.

    Just play Arena if you want to get back in Magic. Paper Magic is cumbersome and expensive and will take way too much of your time.
    Also, you don't have to suffer the so-called social aspect of the physical game. LGS experience is far less pleasing than the promotional videos Wizards pops out tries to pretend.

    The tokens are pretty, we have a pretty PW with an open cleavage, the commons seem quite powerful and good so far and protection from color is back.
    There's something refreshing about this core set.

    I think I have a Rite of Replication somewhere in my Conjurer's Closet.

    Good, they walked back on the dumbing down. Hexproof from color was so cheesy. Otherwise, interesting situational utility creature I guess.

    So I'm confused now. MTGS is saved but its people are still moving? So either we have two sites with lower activity due to the split, or one that will take over or never kick in. Time will tell?

  • posted a message on M20 will have Friday pre-release
    Dude, it's pretty clear. It's to allow stores to start PR on Friday whenever it suits their players, not waiting until midnight. So in almost all cases, stores will replace their FNM by a PR.

    Forget about the Weatherlight saga, it's an old story that concluded 15+ years ago and doesn't ring a bell to most of the new players. It's also quite complicated. It needs to resonate with Magic as it is now.

    Since it will be tied to the current Magic image, it will be very PC. So nobody will die (Like in GI-Joe), villains will be mustache-twirling overlords with stupid minions, there will be mandatory diversity, strong empowered females with witty lines and so on.

    I liked Castlevania on Netflix, but here, I expect a kind of Power Rangers experience.

    Interestingly, the name of the card reminded me of my discovery of Magic mid-'90s, when cards like Scathe Zombies would have those incredible quotes from the literature world. Given this set is basically Time SPiral 2.0, I wouldn't be surprised if it's a nod.

  • posted a message on where to go for rumors after this site closes
    I've stopped playing Magic for a couple of years because it became a frustrating time and money sink for me, and I've never really been good at the game anyway.

    This said I kept lurking around because of the usual excitement of the spoiler season. This place was the only one where the information was clearly displayed in a readable manner, unlike the mess of so-called social media and unusable platforms like Reddit. Also, there's quite a community with cohesion which makes reading about new cards an enjoyable experience. Overall it's true that the number of active subforums declined so there's that.

    Thanks for the people who made this site work for so long and good luck in future endeavors. I'm not sure I will create an account on whatever that will be, but I will likely be lurking around.

    Plenty of mechanics, callbacks to old lore, power level, bold design, making cards for legendary figures we all lost hope to see one day, this set is Time Spiral divided by zero.

    Let's hope that if they ever put out a Commander Horizons product, it will have good Modern cards.

    Both Narset and Ashiok can fit into a Fun Police mono-U deck and are uncommon, which is nice if you're the cheap misanthrope type.
