    Lame, i kinda want to care more and say how disappointing this is (it is) but i kinda don't have the strengths to go all over m14-m15 outrage again. I just want to skip this set, only thing that is holding me on skipping new capenna are the triomes and maybe ob nixilis being 2+ colors.

    Well it might not even be one of the planes tainted by karn, old phyrexians had planar portal tech and had experiments + compleation going in other planes. Things presumably stopped working at the end of the invasion with Yawgmoth being destroyed, but if the oil kept working we can assume some other tech in other planes could be still operational.
    Or maybe Ajani's information about new Capenna being Elspeth's home plane was wrong somehow, maybe disinformation, maybe Ob wanted her there and did some mind trick to Ajani, we may have to wait to see

    Well we will be waiting to see where the phyrexians that tortured Elspeth 30 ish years ago are... Probably they are working with Urabrask? Gonna be hard to explain to Elspeth that they are good guys.

    Huh, soo they are retconning Kyodai to always have looked like a dragon? (aside from having michiko dead of old age before the future sight novel)

    I'm thinking what Jin was trying to do no was a far more modern version of that - they know there is no simple organ but with all the resources and technology and magic they were looking for a way to harvest a spark of some sort. (Which we separately know is possible through the magic of the elderspell that Bolas did.)

    They don't even need to look far away from new phyrexia for a way to do that... Back in Mirrodin Memnarch transformed part of the core into a spark transfer machine soo he could steal Glissa's spark...

  • posted a message on Aaanother leak — the face commanders and side commanders
    Those new commanders all seem lack luster and super gimmick. Outside of maybe 6-7 out of 20+ all seem like skipable and lack luster. They should just make them 60 card brawl decks imo, at least the cards would be able to find unexpected homes in pioneer/standard, and people oppening collector boosters wouldn’t open soo often non standard legal cards.

    Cool UW vehicles. Something new. Green/Red deck: easy pass unless theres a broken card inside.

  • posted a message on [WOTC] Banned & Restricted Announcement - Epiphany, Divide and Haven...OH MY!
    Soo Ragavan is too powerful for legacy but not for modern, looks like our little monkey will keep the format hostage, wich is a good thing: more cheap removal and interactions.

    Modern Horizons sets always take a really long time to ban the new problematics additions, still remember hogaak kappa

    Sacrified legs and a pair of arms…
    They will be nagas now, i can see it…

    kinda sad. At least give some cool akkis and i might still buy alot from this set. They completely changed kamigawa from our last peak (kaseto)(future sight). The kami and mortal world started to fuse in last 100 years. Michiko is apparently dead. They are changing the style of major tribes, etc At this point they should just have made a new plane. Whats next? Slivers? …

    I really think the catch for the set is: Urza, Planeswalker 5c mythic
    Bit vehicles and equipment are a given imo

  • posted a message on Secretversary 2021 and Holiday card one drop is the first ever commander deck (its all reprints no unique cards)
    Its amazing that in just 3 months wizards came up with a way to make precon commander decks with double faced cards. They are really geniuses oh god

  • posted a message on [VOC] Vampiric Bloodline precon— The Command Zone preview
    Wizards should return the brawl decks lol most of the reprints are like meh (outside of a few). Its not like they can’t design brawl decks the first 4 were a sucess(in standard, commander, modern, pioneer) and even tho brawl isn’t really a format outside of arena, commander after the first 5 decks weren’t a huge thing outside of sidetables of tournaments (forfun zone). I kinda have a felling that if we got brawl decks instead of 100 cards commander decks the new cards overall would be more apreciated by all types of players.

  • posted a message on [VOW] Odric, Blood-Cursed— Polygon preview
    I don't get why they did a keyword soup matters Odric again when it was just one aspect of him(his last iteration)(Odric, Lunarch Marshal)
    Remember, Odric keyword soup was a representation of his finesse in combat tactics and leadership... Just remember his first card Odric, Master Tactician.

    This new version makes no sense both in flavor, gameplay/powerlevel and in fanservice. A total failure. If it was an uncommon in a set like commander legends then it would be understandable but this was printed in a standard set, on the set where he turns into a vampire=becomes more powerfull... What a joke.

    Well, this is pushed (alot) the nerf negative ability of this guy all thought is card filter for opponent also grows this guy, makes me think of that demon from RTR that the drawback was that your opponent could sacrifice a creature to tap hin, in comparison this guy is a beast will always be able to hit for 5, if your opponent plays on curve then this guy gets more powerful.
