    This thread going to turn into the other one? Because the card itself is pretty cool, and we’re only a page deep and here comes the BS.


    I know, right? If there was another thread regarding hate speech, I am sadly unaware of it. Anyways, as previously stated, we should get back to the card. Have fun ya'll!

    You're telling me a man who wears iron crosses while hanging out with racists is both jewish and witty. lmao


    I did state that, yes. Pig on Bicycle

    You can read the wiki on plenty of details about him here, and he hung out with the Amazing Lucas and Black Mike that last weekend as told here.

    Now that it has been settled and before this thread derails, let's get back to the card...

    Mechanics-wise:
    So Oko here can give you a 3/3 every second turn. Unfortunately, if he wants to protect himself the turn he ETB, he needs an artifact he can transform. Seems like my best option for him in Modern is Whirza, which needs the clock when it gets Stony Silenced...

    He can actually steal some decent creatures in Modern: Bob, Vendilion Clique, Urza, Lord High Artificer, Goblin Engineer...this guy could be a Whirza mirror breaker.


    Perhaps Darksteel Relic can be used here? Can be traded and then the opponent would have useless chaff pretty much.

    The only resemblance that neo-nazi cosplayer has to Oko is that they're both skinny.

    That, how they dress, and with Oko being a prankster, probably both pretty witty with their retorts.

    Also, he's Jewish. Link

    Looks like Milo Yiannopoulos. :p

    Meh, card looks inefficient anyways. Probably a limited bomb though.

    So, these cards ARE in the collectors boosters as well, correct? I personally wasn't able to find that information in the article. I am going off of what the OP had stated.

    So, if that Arcane Signet comes in a collector's booster, you can pick one up in foil?

    So, there isn't any functional "change" occuring? Just borders on some cards?

    Sigh. WOTC should have had Terese Nielson do the art for these like with what was done last year. Imagine how beautiful and desired it would have been if she had done the art for these.

    I just want one, and in foil. I'd be willing to pay a good price for it though.

    And there are your ten-land cycle (albeit at common) that someone was complaining about in an earlier thread.

    'buster


    *Makes valid criticism that many players want, gets ridiculed and told that players are insane for wanting whatever they want (illogical fallacy) and are "complainers"*

    Smooth. Commons are reprinted time and again, and aren't even considered in this case, but, alright. Uhh

    If you're expecting a cycle of ten lands of the same calibre then that's a bit off.

    'buster


    Not off at all. It is a falicy in understanding why it is only 5 lands from a cycle, even from the perspective of R&D. It makes sense that players like consistency and like to complete parts of their collections.

    I have noticed as well and been meaning to ask, why do you say "buster" in your posts? I have always been curious.

    I hope they can have foil printings too, much like those in Modern Horizons. I might be hoping for too much though.

    I must apologize as I am typing this from my phone and this site has a difficult interface to use via Android. I'll attempt to respond the best that I can.

    For your first point, The support with how 10-colored lands are utilized in sets/blocks is undermined when they keep only doing five of the duals, enemy or allied, at a time. I am not sure how you came to another conclusion other than cycles for dual lands not being completed in set/blocks, but I suppose we will have to agree to disagree there.

    For the second point, I shared that link and made my statement in an attempt to show that not only is WOTC not listening to their fans and players, but change their minds frequently which causes confusion from previous stated promises and efforts made on their part.

    For your third point, I had assumed we would be on the same page on parts of this, and the issue isn't what a lot of players want in regards to designs and such in the game, as that too is also a straw-man issue, but rather to appease the player base as they had not only promised, but were prepared to do in the past with 10-colored support. There is nothing that should have stopped them then, let alone now. R&D are still playtesting and removing kinks and trying to get it all figured out which doesn't take a genius. (That was not an insult at you, rather at the fact that many changes can still be made for the future for R&D where it seems many of their choices are idiotic)

    This was well established in our prior posts, which I will retort with what Maro said back in 2014

    http://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/50101329983/so-i-know-that-there-are-plenty-of-reasons-why-dual

    Now, I know this doesn't mean anything now, with it being 2019, but he had changed his statements soon afterwards before the release of Dragons of Tarkir, saying that all 10 color pairs would be simply supported, rather than completing said cycles. This upset a great many deal of players and collectors whom wanted the cycles completed for their decks and collections at the time. Many, including myself are still annoyed that WOTC continues to not listen to their player base and support all 10 colored pairs with complete cycles, and for whatever their reasons or excuses, continue to half-ass and leave out many other cycles that still need completion and/or representation.

    Stop printing incomplete cycles ffs.

    What?
    They printed all five enemy colors. Are you expecting them to do all 10? Because there's not much precedent for that.


    Are you saying there is a precedent for a half-ass job?

    People want complete cycles. That has been the case since WOTC printed the original fetchlands back in the Khan's block. They originally said they'd support 10-dual colored cycles, and then went back on it that same year. Not only are these lands un-exciting, but the least they can do is print the whole cycle at the same time. It's just annoying for players and collectors at this point.
