    So, is this guy not getting any variant art? Like every other forgettable common and uncommon in this set seems to be getting some.

    They also confirmed that Chun-Li will have multikicker. Pretty sure that wasn't a joke.

    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.

    Handy for triggering constellation or other similar triggers like Sigil of the empty throne.

    Edit: Conviction is a little cheaper, tho.


    flickering ward is even cheaper.


    I've always been a fan of Gossamer Chains - small, very specific window to activate, but it's fogging a creature anyway, and you just recast it to trigger all the constellations and enchantress cards.

    How does a non-germ creature wield this weapon? I'm picturing someone just running around with it like Adam West and that bomb in the 60s Batman flick.

    Am I weird for thinking that Aeromoeba is strangely adorable?


    I don't know how anyone could find you weird for thinking a flying manatee is adorable. If you're weird for that, then so am I.


    Hear hear!!

    Marit Lage >>> MTG

    Sick of her being ignored. It's time for her to be the #1 Multiverse villain.

    Yikes, nothing on this list interests me. Merfolk god. Not sure how I feel about that one. What plane even has this? Can't be Ula.

    Hope this set isn't another bust. This year really hasn't been too great for sets IMO.


    Svyelunite Priest mentions a "Goddess of the Pearl Moon" in its flavor text. Not sure if this would be a "Merfolk God" though.

    I believe Magecraft is a keyword that requires something first - like metalcraft requires 3 artifacts before the metalcraft ability is turned on. So this is "[meet criteria first] then do this ability". Maybe it wants three spells cast first to turn it on, or wants three instants/sorceries in the grave (but that's too similar to Spell Mastery)
