At the beginning of each end step, if you cast an instant or sorcery spell this turn, put a steam counter on Mizzium Boiler. Then if Mizzium Boiler has three or more steam counters on it, remove all counters from it and cast an instant or sorcery card from your graveyard chosen at random without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile instead.

Dec 18, 2018I think part of the reason why the first few sets feel rather bland this time around is because they're doing "block" novels again. Normally we'd have some story articles by now, but they can't really undercut the storytelling of their own upcoming novel (although some of it is inevitable since we see key story points on the cards). That being said, I think the "filler" stories on the Mothership were done pretty well. They're kind of similar to the old Kamigawa vignettes in that they tell self-contained stories that aren't really relevant to the main plot, with the difference being that the Kamigawa vignettes were about "legends" opposed to the "random dudes" in the Ravnica short stories.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

That's precisely why I was hoping that they'd do it properly this time around. For a guild that supposedly is crazy about everything being organic, their integration of gothic architecture and magitech stuff is surprisingly inorganic. We need more Novijen, Heart of Progress vibes!Quote from toomuchtariel »IIRC in the original concept push for RtR, they actually ran out of time before they could design Simic's architecture lmao. So that probably explains the discrepancies.
Dec 17, 2018Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from NerdSoda »Afterlife X probably means you will get X Spirits as opposed to a single X/X spirit (for simplicity's sake), but flavorfully, that makes no sense beyond X=1.
... Unless the ones with Afterlife 2 and above are spirit handlers or something...
I suppose Afterlife 2+ cards will depict groups of people.
Dec 17, 2018soramaro posted a message on Ravnica Allegiance Mechanics (So far: Spectacle, Afterlife, example cards)I think everyone hoping for a Spectacle Lightning Bolt or stuff if similar power level is bound to be disappointed. That doesn't mean there won't be any interesting/powerful cards, if Light up the Stage is any indication.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Quote from AnImAr_ »I'm waiting for the flash spectacle cards that you cast when an opponent pays life for a shockland. They probably didn't push the mechanic that far though
Shocklands were specifically mentioned in the introduction video for the mechanic.
Dec 17, 2018As much as I like the Simic, portrayals of the guild's architecture have always been hit of miss for me. It feels like Wizards still hasn't quite figured out what Simic buildings should look like. I was looking forward to the Simic guild kit basics, but these are kind of meh imo ("gothic spire + swirly glowy thing"). It's also strange that we've yet to see the zonots that are so important to the guild now. I guess the Island could be one?Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Magmatic Birth 2R
Destroy target land. Its controller creates a 3/1 red Elemental creature token with haste.
The spires beneath Valakut are as stable as the goblin huts built on their sides.

Scrap Scrabbler 2R
Creature - Goblin Artificer (UC)
Artifact spells you cast cost 2 less to cast as long as one or more artifact cards were put into your graveyard from anywhere this turn. This effect can't reduce the mana cost of a spell to less than 1.
