    I wonder if Malevolent Noble is intended to be a reference to Elizabeth Bathory and/or Gilles de Rais. I know the latter was an influence for the tale of Bluebeard, which is sort of a fairy tale...

    I love that Eldraine has all the same foods as our world, but for some reason the bananas just have to be extra zany. It's possible Randy Gallegos was just like, "Nope, no phallic objects for me! Gotta make these bananas kid friendly!"

    Rimrock Knight and Reaper of Night have awesome art. Rimrock's reminds me of how MtG art USED to look back in the day. Reaper is just a bamf. Love that weird dragon horror behind him.

    Should be a good way to recur any adventures once the creature portion of the card has died. Since these look for "other islands" the fifth land you play can be another Mystic Sanctuary for its "enters the battlefield untapped" trigger. Very nice.


    Creatures with an Adventure are only a creature while not being cast as an Adventure.


    Exactly. After death, they sit in the graveyard with the card type "instant" or "sorcery", which lets this land put them on top of the library.


    I think you misunderstood 13055 - Creatures with adventure are always creatures. When they're not being cast as an adventure, they're ONLY creatures. They do not count as 2 card types in the grave; a Snapcaster Mage cannot target the adventure in the grave to give it flashback.

    So this is going right into UW Control, while all the other lands in this cycle will be going right into the draft chaff bin...

    I thought it was hinted that Happily Ever After would be a card to breath new life into mono-white in EDH... this can't be accomplished in a mono-white deck. Maybe I misunderstood.

    I love this - the green Spreading Seas Grin
    This looks like it may be the FNM promo version, no?

  • posted a message on [ELD] 5 “second card drawn” mechanic cards
    Yeah, this ability made sense in MH1 with cycling... outside of Opt I've yet to see a single card that would make this "second card" mechanic viable in limited in any way.

    The non-special frame art is the most unmythic looking art I've ever seen. Looks like it belongs on a forgettable common card.

    NOTE that it says "draw your second card" NOT "draw more than one card" - This pyromancer, no matter what, can only trigger once per turn.

    Damn! Here I was, very sad, thinking that the only deck I enjoy playing in Modern had completely died...


    Not at all! In fact, it's better situated now than its's been at any time post Gitaxian Probe banning. C'mon down to the discord!

  • posted a message on [ELD] Mothership spoilers 9/16— Queen Linden and her retinue
    Oh my gosh people - our perceptions of these historical "inaccuracies" are due specifically to...historical inaccuracies!! In the 700s AD Spain was conquered by Muslims - commonly referred to as Moors here. The same goes for Sicily and parts of Italy. Dark skinned individuals were EXTREMELY POPULOUS in Medieval Europe. In Arthurian lore Sir Palamedes was an Arab muslim converted to Christianity. Late 20th century retellings of Robin Hood often has an African Muslim in his troop of merry men - why? To accentuate the historicity of the melding and bleeding of ethnic groups in Europe at the time. If you go to the Met and look at old paintings, you will see that there were numerous individuals of color depicted in court scenes. People of color were not absent from Medieval Europe - Europeans are NOT an Aryan race. Europeans are a diverse group of ethnicities of varying skin colors whose origins stem from both the North AND the South (i.e. Africa and the Middle East).

    I really like the flavor and how this spins food into poison - real homerun here. I just wish food was a practical ability outside of limited and possibly standard - would love some of these flavorful cards for my pauper cube!

    This is my favorite of the mythic artifact cycle! I find Green's typical requirements of creatures with high power is always easier to meet than other colors' typical requirements. Going straight into my mono-green Fight Club deck.
