    I think people are overhyping this card. Taking instants away from Red decks is a huge deal. And being limited to two spells a turn basically means one spell a turn since you’re going to have to burn one spell most turns to draw cards to get any real use out of this effect.

    I really wish this had flash. It would slot right into my Bant enchantments EDH deck if it did. Without flash it’s just a worse version of Estrid's Invocation that can also target artifacts.

    EDIT: Though I should note that targeting artifacts is great, I just don’t run any decks that that’s very relevant for.

    What a weird card. I’m glad that it’s an uncommon since they would normally waste a rare slot with a card like this.

    interesting that the royalty are females with feminine males, the knights are females, the nobles are females. Basically any masculine role is given to a female. What. the. ****.

    I think im going to quit playing this game. I cant stand this stupid ***** theyre doing. Its really dumb and doesnt make any sense not to mention its killing us as a society.


    Dude, shut up. Your pathetic insecurities have nothing to do with this FANTASY GAME and everything to do with your emotional problems and lack of intimacy with the opposite sex. Stop crapping up these threads with your deluded nonsense. If you’re so deadset on quitting Magic then do us all a favor and quit this forum as well.

    Strange that it’s not “X or less” to allow for more fairies.


    I was thinking the same thing, but I suppose they wanted to limit the number of tokens a blue deck can make. I'm thinking Risen Reef decks already ramp so hard. I don't know if I'm ready for that. Lol


    I guess they forgot when they made Oona.

    I love the art. An elf riding a giant fox is everything I never knew I wanted.

    How will they do a Godzilla set when the average creature should start around 10/10 at minimum?


    The monsters probably start small and get bigger with this “build your own monster” mechanic.

    I guess the big question is... will they be brave/stupid enough to stick the enemy fetches in Zendikar 3.0?
    I know MaRo likes to cringe about fetches in Standard, but they may well have cleared the decks well enough to enable this to happen, for all I know. Shrugs


    I’ll never understand the reticence for decent mana-fixing in Standard. Is being able to cast the spells you want to cast such a detriment to the format? And if fetches are so overwhelmingly powerful then why aren’t they banned in any applicable format? Only Standard is allergic to proper mana bases?

    Bestow had potential. Development just overcosted it all to oblivion


    This. The best Bestow card was just decent. I have no idea why they felt Bestow was so powerful that it needed to cost as much as two creatures.

    If we're going back to these places I wonder if we'll see things like Heroic and devotion for Theros; I'd guess we'll see a landfall variant if not landfall itself for Zendikar, provided the storyline and setting call for it. I'd like to see more Heroic and devotion.

    'buster


    I would say Devotion is a sure thing. Heroic was pretty underwhelming last time though, so they may just drop it.


    How about constellation?


    It’s a very broad ability with a ton of applications so it’s probably more likely to return than not, IMO. And it was pretty underused last time around so they may want to use it again just because there’s SO MUCH design space left to explore with Constellation.

    I was contemplating that a few weeks ago at an M20 draft. Too much plastic is being used especially in an age of environmental awareness as strong as it is now.

    They can make packaging that's biodegradable without going the MoMa route and that fiasco. Cute idea but poorly executed last time. Hopefully they learned their lesson.

    'buster


    If you want to help the environment this kind of plastic is much better than using paper or wood material.

    Plastic isnt bad at all, unless you throw it directly into the world and leave it there.
    In any reasonable cycle where plastic is put in the garbage, a lot of plastic is recycled very well.


    ----

    shrink wrap is a pretty essential protection, without it all the packs are just out to get destroyed to humidity.

    Thats probably a pretty big quality loss in itself.


    are they though? lots of people have their loose cards in boxes and they do just fine.


    Those cards aren’t making transcontinental trips in those boxes. These cards are made overseas and shipped here on boats. Humidity is an issue.

    My Enchantment EDH deck is going to love the new Theros set.
    I’m concerned that Ikoria is just going to be an underpowered spectacle, all style no substance.
    A Teferi-centric core set sounds great, so long as it’s got a ton of Mirage flavor. Mirage is nostalgic for me because that was the first set I bought products from rather than just borrowing cards from my brother and cousins.
    Another return to Zendikar sounds iffy. They REALLY dropped the ball last time and I don’t think many people have forgotten that. I don’t have a lot of faith in them salvaging that plane and aside from them reprinting the enemy fetchlands I don’t think people will be excited to take another gamble with Zendikar.

    Even multicolor token decks will love this.
