    The art is obviously depicting someone who just found a Vintage deck in the bathroom of their LGS.

    Really more of an upgraded stealer of secrets. Looting is a specific effect - draw then discard. This ability is really Curiosity on a body.

    The OG creature with this effect was ophidian

    But yeah, this card is still the first 3cmc creature with 3/2 stats that can do this. Not *strictly* better than all others others, since sometimes you may want your creature to have 3 toughness. And Jhessian Thief *could* get bigger.

    I remember from a campaign I designed that there are a bunch of crazy "planes" that I guess run parallel to the main one. Each has it's own theme, as other people have mentioned above. My favorite in the clockwork plane - or the cogwork plane? - which is just a whole world that exists on giant spinning cogs.

    Is it just me or does the card say "each other creature gets..." and *not* "each other creature you control gets..."?


    already fixed that that’s why I need translators help for this one.


    But that seems really bad as a card. I'm hoping the error was the translation *into* Portuguese, and that the actual English card reads differently.

    looks like ragavans days at the top are limited if this catches on


    You are kidding right? This won't be anywhere near any format Ragavan is running loose.


    Also, there's no point in pacifying Ragavan. You just cast another one and sac the first, making your opponent look extra dumb.

    That art looks spectacular. Loving the visitation to D&D creature types and races.

    Not sure why they're using all these ability words...

    'buster


    The ability words are just for flavor purposes - we wont see them after this set. These are abilities that exist in DnD, so the design is just attempting to show how these RPG abilities are being translated into Magic abilities.

    Oh, man.....
    Tarrasque is one of the most iconic things about Forgotten Realms.
    It's basically the Emrakul of that world...

    and what we get is a creature that's stonewalled by Moss Viper what a letdown.... hahah


    Yeah, instead of Fight, it should of had the Rabid Bite ability.

    Do these lands work like the fastlands ?
    To come into play untapped as up to the 3rd land drop ?


    This only comes into play untapped as your first or second land. If it's your third land, it comes into play tapped.

    Why is Purple Wurm not a purple card?

    This is a "bad" mythic only in the sense that it's not a pushed, efficient creature designed for constructed play. This *is* a mythic creature in the ways I've always thought mythics should be - massive, imposing, and awe-inspiring. That being said, by WotC's recent mythic designs, this feels like it should have haste and ward regardless of if you cast it from hand or not. Since I'm pretty sure there's no reanimator in Standard, and we *just* got a "Non-Legendary Reanimator" theme in MH2.

    I think the issue many people have just comes down to MtG being a Fantasy card game, by their standards. Now you can certainly make the argument that Magic has strayed away from High Fantasy and has dabbled in steam punk, Historical Fantasy, Folklore Fantasy, a strange caliber of sci-fi fantasy (Kaladesh), and has even included "gunpowder fantasy" (Portal 2), and D&D, while a separate IP, is still a high fantasy setting that compliments what MtG has been all about in the past - but one thing Magic has never done is let the 20th/21st Centuries bleed into the product in the form of Denim Jeans, Cowboy Hats, and Sneakers. And that seems to be what these UB sets - Walking Dead and Stranger Things thus far - have been, and will be, doing. People like to forget about the real world, and it seems like these IPs are extremely grounded in augmenting our own existing day-to-day existence. I think that's what's truly irking everyone. It's what's irking me, but I'm not gonna Gatekeep and refuse to play with people who want to run these cards, I'm just gonna continue to play with my high fantasy-flavored cards.

    I've never seen stranger things, but from what i know, aside from the girl with brain powers, does anyone else on the show have a specific "skill" that could transfer to a card?

    The crab token isn't cute like I was hoping Frown


    It's all perspective! You're looking at that crab from the point of view of a sand louse!

    Kev Walker is one of the few artists still working today who started at MtG with the old border. His work looks great in that frame. Now we have both Generous Gift and Beast Within in old border.
