Thassa's Bidet is also CMC 4 while the other two tools we have seen are CMC3.
It makes sense to have a god and it's gizmo on different points on the curve I suppose so that the (until now) double-coloured cost of the utensil can more smoothly help the devotion to the god.

Aug 30, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from StroggoiiThese cards are pretty off-pie, I hope the trend continues so R gets card draw and B FINALLY gets artifact/enchantment destruction.
Black will never get enchantment destruction. As in: Never.

Comparing things in Magic always gets silly results.
How the heck is a lava burst for X=2 powerful enough to take out a Granite Gargoyle but it can't set fire to a Tinder Wall?
Aug 30, 2013JovianHomarid posted a message on [[THS]] Medomai the Ageless, Chained to the Rocks, Thoughtseize, Dual Lands, Magma JetPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from LazulineI believe he wrote 3/4 as the P/T of the sphinx. I was also wondering where his post went.
The spoiler now has 3/4 as the P/T. Since Thoughtseize is now in, I am inclined to believe that Trollcreature may be the source for recent changes in the spoiler.
Aug 30, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from penguinofhonorCute! It's got the four seasons thing going as well as the little 1-2-3-4 bit with the modes.
Good spot. That is such in line with what Mark Rosewater has been discussing in his articles and podcasts about having patterns on cards. Like he really wanted Griselbrand to cost 7, and how the modes of Primeval Bounty where not balanced on power just to make them all mention the number 3.
Aug 30, 2013Hmm, the last mode makes me wonder wether the green god has some tutoring abilities, or perhaps some self-mill-into creatures? Like a Hermit druid (but the revealed cards don't go in the graveyard to avoid broken abuse by bad people).Posted in: The Rumor Mill
EDIT: How the smeg is whether/wether spelled? Wehterherherhehrehr. Wether report. Whether girls.
Aug 30, 2013JovianHomarid posted a message on [[THS]] Medomai the Ageless, Chained to the Rocks, Thoughtseize, Dual Lands, Magma JetThere was a post here from Trollcreature at 7:59 AM (Continental Europe time) where he gave the P/T of the sphinx and wrote something like "Seizing thoughts" is 100%. I can't remember the P/T now dammit.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Now it is gone. Was it deleted by a mod as being fake? Did anyone else manage to see it before it disappeared? I returned now expecting to see a bunch of comments on this post, but alas!

Aug 29, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from luegBut it's confirmed that the new duals are Horizon Canopyesque.
1,T,sac: Scry 3, draw a card???
If it is indeed confirmed that they are Horizon Canopyesque, that seems likely. Both versions are plausible I feel, but I doubt that there will be some sort of scry-then-check-land.
My guess is that the Theros duals enter the battlefield tapped regardless. And that the payoff is scry, either on ETB or through sack.
Aug 29, 2013I think we are trying to be too creative. I'm guessing simply:Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Aug 28, 2013Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from jturphyThe problem with this would be turn 1 Elf or Gladecover, turn 2 take 6. I'm guessing they won't go there. It might not be too much, but it certainly could be too powerful.
Ah, sorry. I left out a big part of what I meant:
Enchanted creature gets +2/+2
So the point would be that you'd then have a smallish threat (a 3/3 on turn 2), which threatens to turn into a 5/5 if they try to remove it.
EDIT: And my question was: Would this work, or could you circumvent the intent by casting it for its bestow cost on an empty table, have it "die" as it has no legal target, and end up with a 5/5?
From the wording, I would guess that bestowing on an empty table would not work, as it is an aura spell, and thus it would be feasible to have bestow cost<casting cost.
Aug 28, 2013About the Bestow-mechanic:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Since it says is an Aura spell, I guess it would need a legal target for this to be an option? For the previewed card, it would not matter, but if you had to have a target i place, that opens up the room for cheap mediocre auras that turn into large beasts.
Could this be the 5/5 for GG for example?
Aug 19, 2013JovianHomarid posted a message on [[THS]] Six (6!) Theros Cards from Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters! (and Full Decklists!)The ordeal card says "when you sacrifice", so it wouldn't necessary have to be after you are forced to sacrifice it due to the first ability.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
So you could sack it to an Auratog or other beneficial effect.
