    Great card, but my Animar deck REALLY wishes it weren't Orzhov

    Okay....top 5 best cards in the set without question, maybe THE best. not as flashy as World Tree, but my URZA is this ridiculous



    Edit; I have had a minute to process and this is SO pushed. I need to find a list of all the best tribal payoffs in the game, th very best autoincludes for each tribe. anyon have any links to start me off?

    With how the timing of the steps of combat works, this will make it easier to get damage through in a lot of games and is an 8 point life swing that's already hard to block in Standard. In EDH....it's a sac outlet that also kills one of your things. i definitely see it playing a role in aristocrats in EDH and being a powerhouse in Standard. Boast aside, the other abilities at that rate seem too good not to see Standard play.

    It's....fine? just as a legendary Snake it's fine, but a serpent that wraps around the world losing a fight to Pelakka Wurm really bothers me. it's supposed to be that when this thing gets loose, the world ends, full stop. I just want one time fr these 'it will take your god and give him a swirlie' cards in the story to have a card that's...virtually impossible to cast/activate and if you pull it off, you win a game you aren't even playing. Just ONCE in a real set, get something lik BFM, just to get across 'oh yeah, this thing would take Nicol Bolas and CURBSTOMP him if it ever actually showed up'

    I feel like just for the Chromatic Lantrn ability, this is an auto-include in every 5 color deck forever. Once you hit 6 lands, it's effectively Lantern for 1 that can't be hit by as much stuff. Damn I want to make a God deck now

    If it's 'Viking world completely overrun by Phyrexians in the style of the garbage fire we had with the last Innistrad....awful, that would be just awful, i love Innistrad and that is one of my all time least favorite sets.


    If it's Vorinclex and just a COUPLE Phyrexian cards tied to that brute berserker power of green, then Jin Gitaxias and a few thinkers of Strixhaven, just keep going ONE praetor and a couple buddies on 5 planes with little snippets leading to a set where the Phyrexians are the thing and they aren't rolling over an otherwise already exciting plane, that could be cool. Not like they did with Bolas where it was all about him for a good long time leading up to it. More like Marvel did, they SPRINKLE a few things in about the stones being a matched set, Thanos has a couple short scenes....the buildup needs to be IN the sets, not INSTEAD of the other elements.

  • posted a message on [CMR] Esior, Hullbreacher, and Mana Drain reprint— Hareruyamtg previews
    Oh its Mana Drain , again ... and again ... and again ...

    These reprints of reprints of reprints are getting old really quick.

    Yes its still expensive, but cmon, its not like we have no other cards to reprint, instead we get the same bunch of cards all over again on endless repeat ...

    ----

    For the "white" hate cards, i would have liked them all as White Multicolor cards.

    Opposition Agent as a Orzhov/Dimir (could even be Esper color for that) would have been more in line of the effect, but they made it mono black to make it viable for more decks, cause its crazy power level (so the color identity principle of EDH is really hurting the design and balance aspects in that regard, as WotC is actively producing cards to be as viable for as many color combinations as possible).

    Hullbreacher probably should have been at least white in its casting cost, and/or red.
    Making it a WUR manacost would even be more inline with its effect, but once again, that would have restricted in what kind of decks this card could go, and once again WotC decides to make it mono blue to ensure people play it in as many decks as possible.

    Adding FLASH to all these hate creatures is just icing on the powerlevel cake. Its absolutely not necessary, but it grants them free benefits.




    How on EARTH is Mana Drain 'again and again and again'? It has been printed 3 times in 26 years. The original, a mythic in ONE masters set, ne of the worst and lower selling ones...and a Judge Promo. . It's one of those cards, as i keep explaining to people, that there are more copies of any given Ikoria mythic floating around out there, and Ikoria was released DURING lockdown over here in the US. I would guess that TOTAL, it has a similar number of copies to Rings of Brighthearth,it's like the best choice they are ALLOWED to reprint.

    Not sure what people are complaining about here. to me, this reads '4 mana, Omnath Locus of Mana is not getting spot removed and is super hard to block, go nuts'

  • posted a message on [CMR] Imoti, Reshape the Earth
    I'm with Tormented. I have PLENTY of spot removal. I just finished a 'kill anything that MOVES' Mardu deck. Jut packed with an amount of removal that will get me some dirty, dirty looks next week. And there's not one single target burn spell. A 10/10 Hydra will actually die to MORE of my spells than this will because this doesn't die to Cast Down . every other bit of removal kills both. I feel like if you are playing single target Burn spells without like Torbran, you are doing it wrong in EDH. that butt would be a liability in combat, but this commander doesn't scream 'swing with me', it screams 'slam me down and protect me in colors with SO many ways to protect me, and I generate stupid value'.

    Isn't this a white ability?

    Lol, that implies that white actually gets to do things. White is not allowed to encroach at ALL on other pieces of the color pie, but everyone else is allowed to steal from white
