Sep 23, 20215colors posted a message on Why Is Red the Main Color for Treasure Token Support?Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from Card Slinger J »Is it due to Pirate tribal?
Originally yes. They had been playing around with gold and the one Etherium Cell token Tezzeret makes and when they came to Ixalan they felt it was very flavorful to have the pirates care about gold and for balancing reasons they liked the Etherium Cell tapping to sacrifice so they made treasure tokens. After seeing that treasure went over very well with players and it had some fun design space they decided to make it evergreen. Green and red are the main treasure making colors, green since green is the best at ramp and mana making and red since treasures mimic reds space of getting rituals/temporary mana as well as having the most creature types that flavorfully work with treasure (pirates, goblins and dragons).
Sep 22, 2021So seems Olivia was planing to get married before knowing about the stuff with the humans and her ambush will be the true end of the story (some people where guessing Olivia irrupting the festival was what let the werwolves in to attack).Posted in: Magic Storyline
I really like how the author wrote the conflict with Arlinn and her needing to balance both humans and werewolves sides and hopefully she survives her dual and we see more of her next set.
EDIT: I also like how they mixed in the Arlinn card having day/night bound and not having full control of her transformation.
Sep 22, 2021Might also be they have discard vampires to help support the madness/vampire deck even if they don't have madness in the set proper. They have said a goal for retune sets is that if you mess all the cards together they should somewhat play and feel like they belong together.Posted in: Speculation
Sep 17, 2021Except for the Zendikar Rising trailer none of the trailers are meant to be fully canon and just give the views an idea of what the set is about. They likely used Jerren, either character and/or just the name, since he's a character in lore who fits as the church orphanage abusive leader.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Sep 17, 2021Glad they kept that Ormendahl was corrupted it was a small detail in the art book I was wondering if they keep.Posted in: Magic Storyline
I also like how sections of the church as shifted into more GW after Sigarda.
Liesa come back works for me, most of us guessed she came back similar to how demons can reforms and through her own will she kept her selfhood to boot.
Sep 16, 2021The *new* legendary characters in Midnight Hunt:Posted in: Magic Storyline
I have to say defiantly feels like a lot of characters are getting set up stuff for more stories;
-Adeline and her vampire brother which might be a story note in crimson vow as Adeline and Chandra are said to have upcoming story moments
-Olag mysterious visitor (also nice on having the Frankistein monster "good")
-Wilhelt is indeed Gisa new caller
-Lynde has a cool nod to the Unluckiest

Sep 14, 2021Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Flisch »So I've been thinking. We got a Green-White and a White-Black angel in Midnight Hunt. Anyone think the two remaining archangels will create/appoint new archangels for the other two colours and we're going to see a White-Blue and a Red-White archangel in Crimson Vow?
All depends on how Liesa was retuned, thought I could also see that Bruna and Gisela being corrupted somehow keeps them from retuning.
I wonder if maybe Sorin has something to do with it. Maybe knowing Sigarda can't be controlled by him like Avacyn could and likely she isn't interested in keeping a balance but would kill/cure all the monsters if given the chance Sorin brought back Liesa (since maybe Avacyn is beyond his power as neo-walker) since from what we know of her she seems willing to work with Sorin than Sigarda.
Sep 10, 20215colors posted a message on Innistrad 3- Midnight Hunt and Crimson Vow flavor referencesOkay I think I got all the references, I didn't wanna repeat too much stuff we have seen before on Innistrad (like blue zombies are based on Frankenstein) so let me know if y'all think I missed anything.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Sep 10, 2021Fun folk horror story and does show there are still some evil witches/warlocks still a threat.Posted in: Magic Storyline

I don't quite follow this logic... I mean, as soon as Overwhelming Splendor lands on you, she will lose all abilities and you'll not move it to anyone else and get your cards. So it's completely stupid to play Overwhelming Splendor when she's out... I don't feel you need to set her color identity to prevent players from playing that total non-bo?
I think its more OS not working with what they wanted to do with her means there is one less white curse to play and thus being BUR making more sense for a curse commander.
