    Wonder if ppl will play wish in standard. In Rivals of Ixalan the tutor that could pick things in the sideboard was a 'huge' card on most metas. if we had a "small teferi"'s effect on standard maybe this card could see alot of play idk.

    Why would you ask people to stop posting spoilers in the rumor mill?
    Its just painfull to see the Tarrasque or Ancient dragons as 4/3, adult dragons as 5/4, etc with every spoiler more and more misses and miss representation of dnd monsters, next time they will probably spoiler Orcus as a 4/3 devil with trample and some discard bonus, or graz'zt as a 2/2 vampire with deathtouch


    What? They made adult dragons roughly the right size to go toe-to-toe with Strixhaven's centuries old dragon founders? How dare they!

    In Magic, a squirrel can kill a trained soldier. Stats have never, and will never make perfect sense for the creatures they represent.


    Ok on the same set an ancient and powerfull dragon just dies to a young one, from the same universe, and the only ability that ancient dragon has is the fact that later the random drow that killed hin makes a sword... At least the ancient black (dracolich) dragon is good (has above average attack and a good ability). Yes, yes this is a crosover set but at least they could have keept things consistent in set, and thats why i m kinda upset. Go ahead and say that 15 1/1 birds can block and kill Emrakul, go ahead.

    Well mono black agroo looks like a good bet for the next meta. This guy can trade with a low curve creature, exile it and make a 2/2, you lose 1 power overall but will have the token, also vs chump block you just keep getting more power on the battlefield. 10/10 design.

    I was ready to ask/implore for people stop posting spoilers, but at least this card is interesting and not just a out of flavor and undepowered card. Actually kinda cool card.

    Why does an ancient white dragon is just a 4/3? lol (i know they are one of the weakest chromatics but it can’t even defend vs the dragonland..)
    Are they going with the literal white dragons are white creatures, red dragons are red creatures, blue dragons are blue creatures, etc?

    feels bad

    Do beholders actually fly or just levitate a bit off the ground? Flying in Magic tends to imply being very high for evasive purposes. It doesn't seem to have any need to try and evade you. That just makes it harder to blast you with its eye powers. It also seems to do just fine with the eye stalks. It immobilizes you and causes you to act for it. From what I can see, it does quite well at representing a beholder just like Tarrasque does everything it's supposed to do. It just isn't as overpowered as some people want it to be so they can whine about it being overpowered later.

    Yes Beholders are ok without flying because of their “slow” levitate speed
    NO! The Tarrasque is not ok without some form of unlimited recursion (like returning to deck) and a way to trample over a bunch of creatures, even ones with deathtouch, fighting one is not ok, the sight of the tarrasque is the doom for towns, even with multiple people defending it. Not having trample and a way to return is just bad design and flavor(on the d20 set why not just make a “when tarrasque dies, instead of putting it into the graveyard roll a d20 and put it on top of its owner library beneath that many cards.”)

    such a miss

    I don’t like those roleplay actions in rules text box. Hate it in AEG’s card games. At least they are not in the middle of the text but it looks soo bad should be on the flavor text imho.


    Like the use of d20 but hope there isn’t a good card with it.
