With some more thinking, I think the real problem with KCI is it creates a burst of mana in one turn. Skirk Prospector needs goblins only and Heritage Druid (lots of) elves only and both are still powerful.
If you add "You may activate this ability once per turn..." the card becomes pretty useless.

Jan 21, 2019They said long TURNS, not long TIME. In a GP, when time is up, you get 5 turns. If the turns are too long you get logistics problems. Storm also has one long turn going off but it happens sooner. KCI can more easily afford to wait.Posted in: Modern
They set a precedent for banning cards due to time in legacy's Sensei's Divining Top but that's overall game time. This is quite different.
Jan 6, 2019Rampage of the Clans seems sweet with Tireless Tracker. Kill opponent's artifacts and enchantments, then get more centaurs than the opponent because you have clue tokens.Posted in: Modern

Dec 18, 2018Posted in: ModernQuote from ktkenshinx »Lots of new Ravnica Allegiance (RNA) cards have been spoiled so far, and it's past time we get a discussion thread going. See our site spoilers here: https://www.mtgsalvation.com/spoilers/229-ravnica-allegiance. We also have some previews discussed on Reddit that have not yet made it to the spoilers. This includes Growth Spiral, the Simic instant-speed Explore, and the powerful new Human, Lavinia, Azorius Renegade.
Lavinia, Azorius Renegade UW
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
Each opponent can't cost noncreature spells with converted mana cost greater than the number of lands that player controls.
Whenever an opponent casts a spell, if no mana was spent to cast it, counter that spell.
Obviously a nice little boost to Humans a big middle finger to decks like Gx Tron. Excited to see where else the set takes us! What other cards are people looking forward to?
Big middle finger to the Sram/puresteel combo deck.
Dec 18, 2018Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Jiyor »Quote from sylvanllewelyn »Nonbo with Rest In Peace. Also Nonbo with the new Lavinia. Doesn't do anything for humans.
I guess Devoted Druid decks when they combo off?
This still works with new Lavinia. Even if your opponents gos to cast a spell on your turn with CMC equal to the spell their casting they need and extra 1. Forcing your opponents to have to only do things on their turn while being able to still do things on their turn is a big tempo advantage.
On another note, with Afterlife being a mechanic expect a reprint of Phantom General in the set.
I mean the second ability of the new Lavinia is negated, since Tithe Taker forces the player to pay 1 mana for a 0 mana spell. This is important because it also means Lavinia cannot stop suspend spells.

I thought about this. I think the home for it is Burn, not UR storm.

Didn't realise there's actually a name for it. I thought someone was short on money and rummaged through the dollar bin for a deck.

Actually... the best place to put it might be a mill deck. Searching becomes quite scary.
Tron Decks can cast Chalice of the Void for 2.
Rather than destroy Blood Moon, a new option is to destroy the nonbasic land. UR decks can get hosed by their own enchantment.
Then again I can just combine it with Shadow of Doubt.
Aug 4, 2018Posted in: ModernQuote from Koopa »The Vengevine deck is gross. Jeez is it good.
Vengevine and Hollow One have been pet cards for casual players since it was printed because those nut draws are nuts.Disruptive Shoal is looking like a good card.
Jul 28, 2018I do not play multiplayer or commander magic but, this card feels very nasty. It's like telling your class in high school that they'll get a dollar every time they pinch that one socially-awkward student in the face. "See? Nobody like you."Posted in: The Rumor Mill
