    A 2 mana 2/3 is not good enough for standard.
    Right, I have never seen someone cast a Gifted Aetherborn or a Sylvan Advocate ...



    Both of those have excellent abilities. They’re not vanilla 2/3 creatures for 2 cmc.

    This card is stupid. And I don’t mean that in a good way.


    2 mana (one being generic) for a 2/3 is good enough. Then you give it a static ability, a crazy good one.

    Then you give it a 4 mana effect as strong as that? I hate it.

    I have decks I should run this in and I don’t think I will just on principle.




    Do you refuse to use all good cards or just pick and choose arbitrarily?

    Pretty much every Enchantress EDH deck is going to want this immediately.


    Agreed. This set has a a lot of interesting and good cards for enchantress EDH decks. I'm trying to figure out what cards I need to remove from my EDH deck to make room.


    Same. I have such a hard time cutting cards from my Bant enchantment deck. Trying to balance outright value and explicit win conditions in a deck that allows you to play slow and then make huge plays out of nowhere is tough.

    Very interesting. Not sure if it’s any good though.

    Dude, what are you doing? We’re in the middle of spoiler season and you clutter up page 1 with an entirely pointless necro?

    I really don’t understand why it only gives 1 creature a counter instead of all of your creatures. This is not a mythic Mythic. Do they actually want White to be the worst color in Magic? They could do so many little things to make White more viable but they consistently choose not to.

    Well that’s... weird. Treating the tentacles like independent creatures is pretty inelegant. And a giant kraken starting as 2/3 is wonky.

    I laughed at Tiro because I pictured him saying "No lore no Brawl" like Homer Simpson did in that one episode:

    "No lore and no brawl makes Tiro something something."



    I take it you’ve never seen ‘The Shining’?

    That owl symbol looks terrible. And owls are actually quite dumb by bird standards, so it’s a weird choice. A crow or raven would have been a more sensible and cooler looking choice.

    What a silly thing. They just arbitrarily picked a starting point instead of applying an ounce of logic for the format.


    Any set you choose to be the start date is entirely arbitrary.


    Only if you consider the starting point of Modern to be entirely arbitrary as well.

    guys, stop complaining please.


    You know what you wrote makes me want to start complaining instead of stop

    Complain if you like, but he's right. This is all our (customer pool at large) fault.

    The entry barrier to our fun is increasing, limiting who can have fun with us. But this is just a continuation of existing trends.

    And actually, charging large dollars for functionally identical game pieces is so much better than chase-mythics and tournament-staple buy-a-boxen. So while WotC are undeniably wh0res, you can't really blame them for it. Blame the johns.


    So the business making the decision to price-gouge it’s customers bears no responsibility? It’s all on us, even though no one here has expressed any interest and even social media seems to be 100% against this product? Why shouldn’t we hold WotC’s lack of morals or respect for their customers against them?

    I already hate those Collector Booster because of their outrageous price, but this is even worse. The value just isn’t there but neither is the collector appeal. The binder is just a binder, the 3x3 sheet is a fraction of a collector’s item, the print isn’t even worth $10, the digital stuff is fluff and the Collector Boosters don’t justify the rest of the cost. Those boosters should cost $10 max, not $30. Those premium Alara boosters were like $8.99 and those were 15 foils.

    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.
