    the artifact lands wouldn't hurt anything, the current Affinity doesn't even use them, but I would love the red one for galvanic blast without diluting my Burn

    seething song wasn't too much, Storm was too much. I am a firm believer that completely murdering a deck for the greater good can be acceptable. 1 for 3 rituals would be incredibly useful in any deck, Storm cards only in Storm decks. Ban the one-deck target, not the multi-deck ammo. That was the reasoning in Depths going, not Hexmage, because the vampire is not useless without the land, but the reverse is not true. and rituals would make more answers accessible to early threats. Don't ban Shaman, give each color a reasonable answer

    Dark ritual, obviously with a similar card for each color, plus colorless, bu I am not aware of them already out there

    Quote from Dio
    Hero of Leina Tower screams build around me. Just ramp, then target it with pump spells and sink mana into it.



    I agree, I picked up a playset already on preorder, i see it being a monster in ramp, probably not goyf good, but I can get it much bigger turn 2-3

  • posted a message on Let's come up with the top 5 cards in Modern
    1)Bolt (duh)
    2) Tron Lands
    3)Scavenging ooze- better than goyf for me because it can grow with no real cap in the right deck and just filling a graveyard is easier than filling with certain types
    4)doom blade- dies to doom blade, unconditional against most decks
    5) the mythic swords- Cawblade, pick the one that gives the ability you want

    back to Song and other Storm enablers, just give us more answers. I have a black control deck that can make you discard into oblivion and kill whatever slips through. Tron with no Tron lands sucks, remove Storm enablers, but it dies badly to plenty of decks like Burn or Affinity. I see it like little league sports, instead of making us actually come up with new ideas to face the cards that scare us, Wizards just bans the most powerful cards, fall behind left behin I say. If Storm surges, Jund might take a major hit, dropping the price of Jund staples and letting more brewers buy them, eventually making a deck that kills Storm, repeat cycle ad infinitum

    Quote from Galerion
    Well the gods have more power than a random planeswalker on Theros. Xenagos is more powerful as a god than he could ever be as a planeswalker I think.


    and I think that they were only the best before the Mending, the wiki said only the most powerful mortal wizards could rival them before, now those wizards would be much stronger, and a god should always beat a human

    I think with Kiora, Prophet of Kruphix is likely to rise, untap abilities to keep mana for defense until krakens? yes please

    seething song doesn't really seem too bad, the worst that could really happen is an early Titan. Burn is pretty much done by 3 mana, Goblins likewise, rite of flame is probably still too much, but am of the opinion that they should unban it all and let the players just find new answers. the list is to prevent a stale meta,but getting rid of the list would give us all of the decks that used these cards. we have enough answers for something to get too oppressive. think about it, a banned card could be answered by a banned card we have stuff to directly kill Jace, for the love of Serra! or just seething song

    honestly, I want few, if any, of the rares and mythics so far, phoenix was disappointing to say the least, not mythic worthy, but these uncommons! i play Modern monored burn and I want 4 RIGHT NOW!

    unfortunately, you have to choose what it is tapping for, just like choosing to sacrifice to an ability of the creature sacrificed or to Annihilator. If it worked like that I would only play tap ability cards (and probably still lose)

  • posted a message on Will Goyf, Clique, Bob be reprinted (again)?
    sure, but most likely in 'Return' sets, can't just cram them in anywhere. if Wizards gets serious about Modern it will be a BIG run, Standard or something new, not MM2, and they will have to make sure they don't break Standard, so it could be a while. but at this point it is reprint those cards, print comparable/better replacements, or see Modern become as completely inaccessible as Legacy

    think of it like this, you can buy a lump of silver with Mind Sculptor on it, and if the OP is right about $100, it will cost less to buy a solid silver Mind Sculptor than a cardboard one

    do you know where they will be sold? online or just in stores? I just want to get one (if they are good) before scalpers. you probably know how that is with MM and all. I have yet to actually see one of those packs. any online sellers likely?
