    I think people are overlooking the fact that Experience is the mechanic for this Commander set and we'll likely see ways to manipulate or add experience tokens, as well as other creatures that gain/benefit from experience tokens.

    If they do a RW one, I kinda hope its Munda or someone new as opposed to Nahiri. I want to see Sorin and her's story wrap up on another plane.

    I'd honestly like a new green guy for a bit. I started playing in Innistrad, so Garruk was the big green for awhile.

    I still would put my money on Nissa and a new person or Nissa and Chandra if Wizards is playing it safe since no core sets anymore.

    Aren't we supposed to get one new walker per set since RTR? As in, one new character entirely? If I recall Rosewater said that was the plan, and its been pretty spot on sans a few sets in the middle.

    Return to Ravnica had Vraska
    Gatecrash had Domri Rade
    Dragon's Maze had Ral Zarek

    Theros had Ashiok and Xenagos
    Born of the Gods had Kiora
    Journey Into Nyx didn't have one (only Ajani)

    Khans of Tarkir didn't have one (only Sorin and Sarkhan)
    Fate Reforged had Ugin
    Dragons of Tarkir had Narset

    Battle for Zendikar has Ob Nixilis

    I think we could see one of the Oath members then a new character or planeswalker. They'll save Nahiri/Sorin together for a later story thread to unravel. Would be interesting if someone like Drana did it, but doubt they'd give another Vampire a planeswalker nonetheless a second B in this story.

    Isn't the gate the portal the refugees from Zendikar are using to get to Ravnica they alluded to in RTR?

    This solves the vast majority of my issues as of late.

    I haven't been happy with any of the third sets recently at all. Faster rotations allows riskier ideas/mechanics to be explored. More blocks means faster advancing storytelling. No longer am I excited once a year, but twice a year for something cool to happen in Magic.

    More blocks also means more new/varied planeswalker characters.

    RR you win, opponent never gets a chance to really stop you.

    Destroy target aura enchanting a creature you control that attacked this turn.

    That's how I'd do it, then you have to actually be the typical red offense to break it.

    Quote from movexig
    Being upset that this card exists is like being upset that Shatter was printed in Mirrodin (old and new). Green has had Naturalize consistently for over a decade, more or less, so I'm entirely baffled that people are interpreting doing the same thing with exile as some kind of obscenity. This is entirely predictable, entirely fair, and entirely unremarkable. It's delusional to expect there not to be answers to card types that are going to be important in the upcoming metagame.


    Eh I don't really have an issue with it, having Green get access to Exile is meh and I don't like "do everything" utility cards typically. I didn't like Naturalize anyway so I don't like this.

    I'll tolerate it though, anyone who wasn't expecting Green to get God-hate was delusional though lol

    Edit: So help me if they don't print Deicide (Exile target God) I'll be sad.

    I would've rather they printed a more expensive Erase in White and an Exile target Artifact in Green as a pair of cards. Instead of a catch-all 3 drop.

    I'd swap it to be land-type based, call it Profusion.

    Volcanic Eruption 1R
    ~ deals 2 damage to each creature.
    Profusion - ~ deals 6 damage to each creature instead if you control seven or more Mountains.

    Quote from Shadowfate
    Triggers are written "[Trigger condition], [effect]" or "[When/Whenever/At] [trigger event], [effect]." If you're writing the reminder text in the same format as it would be in rules text, why would you remove the comma?


    My mistake then, I assumed it wasn't necessary since it was a flat statement.

    Why?

    Okay. As long as it helps.

    The "doing anything" would be covered by a keyword specific rules update that allows the spell to be copied as it last existed on the stack.
    Do you think it is better to give only one copy?


    Comma was unnecessary (at least I believe it was, I could be wrong.)

    I almost like it better with a single copy, so its a tolerable spell normally but a powerful one if you smacked your opponent in combat this turn. It also plays more into WU's strengths of locking down an opponent so you can swing in and using your fliers to the maximum. It'd almost be like Bloodlust but restrictive and WU.

    Couldn't you order your triggers with Conundrum Sphinx and Scry then play the top card you left there?

    Sprout 1 (When this creature enters the battlefied put a +1/+1 counter on it or put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield.)

    Removed comma, added put before Saproling so it doesn't sound like put a counter on it or a 1/1 green Saproling, it says to put said saproling on the field.

    Martial (If a creature you control dealt combat damage to an opponent this turn, copy this spell.)

    I don't know if this was your intention, but your current wording wouldn't do anything. This way only results in one copy if a creature dealt combat damage to an opponent this turn.
