    Quote from Dontrike »

    You indeed did find some nice synergy, but all I'm looking at there is multiple creatures that can be sniped down and one piece of removal stopping the whole thing. Strong? Yes. As amazing as people are making it out to be and/or meta breaking? Not in the least.

    I have that same kind of synergy in my R/G Omnath EDH and all I need is Omnath and a karoo, or Storm Cauldron, or Ghost Town with or without Burgeoning. I don't even use Field of the Dead. Again, your example is good, but it's not as good as it looks as there have been ways to abuse lands far easier and better for a while.

    Not even close. Your example is limited by the number of land drops you have in a turn. East Kodama + Bounce land + plus anything that makes a token on landfall is infinite. Play scute, trigger Kodama putting bounceland into play which triggers itself, Kodama and Scute. Bounce the land back make your scute token, which triggers the Kodama again to put the bounce land back into play. Rinse, wash, repeat.

    I don't disagree with you. I don't think it's format breaking. But It is definitely strong. Probably stronger than you are giving it credit for.

    Personally I kind of want to play it in the 99 of Amareth, the Lustrous because they have their own sweet synergy. Definitely a deck that must have Top.

    Amareth seems like a pretty solid place to put Kodama of the East Tree. Play a permanent trigger both, potentially draw one with Amareth to put into play with Kodama then trigger Amareth again from the Kodama ability.

    Edit: Ooh also she plays really well with things like Ashaya, Soul of the Wild and Living Plane. And of course the deck begs to have an early Top.

    Clench your sphincters Vorthosi. This one's gonna hurt.

    Legendary Creature - Angel
    Tap another untapped creature you control with flying: Radiant, Serra Archangel gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
    Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

    It’s like a really bad Wurmcoil Engine. I guess they needed a colorless member of the 9 mana mythic cycle? If you’re living in some crazy dream world you can Lithoform Engine the Encore for some decent value but by then you should have already won.

    What monster in the spoiler scheduling committee or whatever decided to give someone Rebbec and not Glacian? Like... really? I guess the diamond I can understand because it’s an artifact but just randomly Vial Smasher instead of pairing her with Glacian? Whoever made that decision needs to take a dock in pay.

    You're telling me you want to pay secret lair prices for... generous estimates, $20 worth of stuff? most of which is wrapped up in two of the cards? Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are both worth less than 50 cents and ingot should only be played if you're on a seriously tight budget.

    And as for the 6GGG let me put it this way...

    how do you feel about getting...10 Lands (Any lands you want) into play tapped

    For 9 mana? Eh. *Shrug*

    There's a Red 6CCC mythic sorcery as well which implies there is a cycle of those.

    Quote from Creedmoor »
    I know people are complaining about partner and plabeswalker commanders, but I am really excited for this set. The drafting aspect with weird partners sounds super cool, and I think it will be a fun way for some EDH players to break out of their usual habits of playing overpowered cEDH stuff as well as their typical strategies and instead play some weird decks.

    As for Partner returning, I have mixed feelings as I know how busted some of the old combinations are, but I also know how fun it is to mix and match partners to make some fun and wonky combinations. I guess I choose to not play cEDH so I get to avoid the really dreadful partner combos.

    Also, did someone mention that they were also releasing Commander Precons with this set? Or was that just speculation?

    Yes. There are Precons. In the vein of the Zendikar Rising ones. Only like three exclusive cards.

    I think it’s some legal thing having to do with sponsorship etc.

    I just realized another thing

    How is prismatic Piper Color identity gonna work outside draft And in regular commander

    couldn’t you just say any color at any time each game You made it esper with the piper and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

    But yet you can switch it to jeskai and bant Before each game

    I mean as long as you have a package of cards to make your deck legal when you play it. If you have Ishai and Piper and, at the start of the game, call piper black and then are playing red cards then you’re cheating. But it could be cool to have like a deck skeleton that is one or two colors then packages based on what color you want to play.

    My guess is that they’ll cheat on one of them and show Jeska since we already know about her.

  • posted a message on Zendikar rising first look on July 25th
    I wasn’t playing when Original Zendikar Block came out but I’ve always seen The Roil as Zendikars defining feature not the Eldrazi. It’s greatest facet has been that it, more than any other plane, is it’s own living actor. But in BFZ block we learned that the roil was basically an immune reaction to the eldrazi being sealed there. So what happens to Zendikar now? Emeria comes crashing to the ground? The weather becomes even more volatile as the plane itself adjusts to a new norm? And now all of its denizens have to as well. And here comes Nissa, the person most suited to lead that adjustment because she’s literally it’s best friend.

    Also we’ve been gone from Zendikar for coming up on a year(in universe) now? And without their parent eldrazi there empowering them and refreshing their numbers of course Munda and Tazri are eliminating the spawn. Also The people of Zendikar need to learn that their hero is dead, which is probably one of the reasons Jace is there.
