    So is Vorinclex making Tibalt sow chaos as a prelude to Phyrexian invasion?

    elves and beserkers are not known for sacrifice shenanigans. Suspect this will be worse than many commons in limited, but should be a good 5th/6th pick if you are playing one of these tribes.

    that saga seems bad. 3 mana for two treasures and you have to wait two turns to tutor your equipment? Ok for limited, I guess, but even then it seems very bad if you are playing it after turn 4.

    The clear choice is Shapeshifter, cast clever impersonator, making two copies of the enchantment.

    Okay so what are the rulings for the MDFC’s going to be in the command zone. I’m assuming we’re going to have every permanent type, which includes a possible land, but how will that work?

    If the front side is a Legendary Creature, then it can be in the command zone.
    Tibalt is taking over for my Mogis deck.

    This will be the rare I get 3 normal and 2 foil in a set booster box.

    This card could be an uncommon instead of wasting a rare slot. It's a constructed piece of garbage.

    You know that changeling is in the set, right?
    This is a pretty strong 2 drop for limited. Limited is what determines rarity, not constructed.
    Also, this could be good in constructed.

    I totally believe Vorinclex is real. Why? Because of the same reason that Amonkhet had the Nicol Bolas stuff going on.

    When they did Theros, they knew that there was a lot of general knowledge about Greek mythology. Enough to do everything top-down. Films like Troy, 300, Clash of the Titans, Percy Jackson and even the Disney Hercules movie did a lot to give the average person knowledge of greek mythology.
    But when they did Amonkhet, they realized that there is very little general knowledge about Egyptian mythology (pretty much nothing beyond mummies and pyramids). So they had to add more to it.

    Same thing here. Norse mythology is beloved by a small subset of people. Most people don't know anything more than Thor, Odin, Loki and Mjolnir. A lot of people know of the World Tree, but even then it is not a lot. I am sure that they felt they needed another hook to get players into it. Phyrexians make sense.

    Not many names for this name and number crunch!

    Sooooooo... updates?


    Forgive my lack of expediency. No one cared about the Zendikar Rising crunch, so I didn't think anyone wanted them.


    In a set like this where we know how many reprints there are the number crunch becomes a lot more worthwhile.

    Interesting card. The second half is of course the better half.
    Just look at Amulet of Vigor and imagine in the command zone.
    Unfortunately, I just don't see too many etb tapped synergies that aren't land-based. So I guess this is a landfall general?

    Quote from dallasgamer86 »
    Does anyone else think Court of Cunning is Legacy playable? A 3 drop Monarch spell that can be exiled to Force of Will / Negation with serious mill, dredge, and reanimation applications. Heck, a control deck could just mill no one and use it as a blue Phyrexian Arena. Thoughts?

    Blue has much better card draw...

    1. Would not play this in limited. Probably why it is Mythic as you don't want a common or uncommon to be unplayable in limited.
    2. Can only be played in monocolor commander decks that will cheat this into play. Assuming anything that is 2+ colors will have better options than a bunch of vanillas.
    3. Would be really cool if it was less expensive. Like, a 3/3 for 3 that makes one token when it dies and Encores for 6 mana. Would especially be cool for precursor golem decks.

    Tevesh Szat - really do not like that they made a planeswalker commander that wins the game when it ults. None of the previous ones won the game with their ults - they gave huge advantages but you had to find synergies. This guy seems like he will be annoying. Spam tokens to block, play interaction on evasive attackers, then ult to steal 3 commanders.


    How exactly is stealing 3 creatures winning the game? The most annoying part here seems to be his ability to force out creatures from the command zone and thus ticking up the command tax of your opponents commanders. And even that takes at least four turns of protecting it (without proliferate shenanigans).

    Most people build around their commanders. So when they can't play their commanders their decks are much weaker. Stealing 3 commanders should be a big enough swing to win you the game, even if they don't help you that much.

    I know there are stronger ults than this but I think this is the most game-winning of the PW ults from the command zone so far. I play some of the PW commanders and I don't even try to ult them.

    I finished making a list, though I have not tested it yet.
    120 cards x 4. I realized that with more people we can draft a normal cube, so this is a good option for less than 4 people.

    It is 5 colors, though there are imbalances with the gold cards as I want some people to play 2 colors and others to play 3 colors. I chose not to make any one color deep enough to go monocolor. If I want to enable this I would probably need to cut some gold cards and put some hybrid cards.

    Will post the list once I pickup the sleeves.

    Do you think there should be sideboarding or no? I think best of 1 would be best. You play each opponent once - 3 quick games.
