    Hope against hope. When fighting for... or against... former angel of hope. Wonder how well it will be translated.

    posted a message on Werewolf planeswalker biography from the mothership
    I'm so questioning the morality of defending werewolves against humans. Morality of a person who knew she's dangerous, but still studied around several unsuspecting people which ended in deaths of some of them. I would be more understanding if she warned them and they agreed on risk, but no. So even with her motivation to help her kind, I'd bet more on green than white.

    I'd guess Eye of Ugin because eldrazi were central points of two blocks and because it would bring difference in card types.

    posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 1/1 - Oath of Nissa, UR Manland
    New manland underlines what monstrosity Celestial Colonnade was. New one is a 4/1 or 1/4 for 2UR, while old one was 4/4 flying vigilance for 3WU.

    I just love how holograms on several photos look like little brooms. See Tectonic Edge.

    I appreciated not only Gideon's reflection of Heliod's spear, but also the reminder that Nissa's actions in Teeth remain canon--she feels remorse for releasing the Eldrazi.

    I think a conversation in the future between Jace and Nissa--realizing that they are both to blame--could yield an entertaining dynamic.
    It's about time she started to feel remorse for that. Because earlier in URs she lamented on "failing Zendikar" and Jace blamed himself for releasing the titans, while in webcomics and "teeth of Akoum" Jace was an unwitting pawn of Bolas while Nissa knew that by smashing hedron she is releasing Eldrazi to roam, being wrong only in thinking they would leave Zendikar. Btw, does anybody in-story know that it was Nissa who released Eldrazi?

    About incoming episodes: I think "promises to keep" might be a wordplay with Keral Keep. Plus, it looks like Chandra's hand to me.

    I love bismuth too much to form any coherent thoughts on sixth type of basic lands. Some competitive player I am. On another hand, need ALL the wastes!

    Gideon didn't leave because he promised he wouldn't. Also I wouldn't call Tazri's advice military experience. The things she said we're pretty basic to anyone who was watching.

    How many of the people here realized that Gideon's strategy was lacking or wrong or indeed what he should have changed, before Tazri pointed it out. I would say next to nobody. If you did, or someone else, hey props to you, but I think that the hindsight here is what makes most people go "It was obvious!"
    Must admit I didn't realize Gideon's strategy was wrong. Didn't realize even that "chaaarge!" was entire strategy and not just what PoV and his group were doing. So when Tazri started blaming Gideon on not utilizing strongest sides of his people, it had the effect similar to if someone approached and said they should've organized sleeping places and latrines - "what do you mean it wasn't done before?".

    Funny how Noyan survives on making something work through irritation, and he didn't believe Gideon used the same tactic. Myth or no myth, didn't it sound familiar? Smile

    Also it was the funniest UR I've ever read.

    Quote from TerrorKingA »



    Remember, Jace is using the hedrons differently. Ugin wanted to preserve the Eldrazi, while Jace wants to destroy them. The Aligned Hedron Network must be having a different effect on the world.


    So what you're saying is Jace figured out how to make a better/more effective lock in a week than three oldwalkers did in decades.

    Of course, he's Jace.
    If those are exactly same hedrons, just aligned differently, then my first thought will be that Ugin knew all along how to do that, he just didn't want to. That's just too big for a coincidence. Of course, need to see actual story, because there are plenty of ways this revelation to turn insulting for parties involved.
