Quote from Cursed »Why would you be able to find a booster pack... the set isn't even released.
Quote from 5colors »
Nah you all misread that chapter. Bolas killed Ugin on the Mediation Realm and in the Mediation Realm made his own horns.
Quote from Strohhirn »
The Leviathan was not Ugin. Ugin "died" on Tarkir.
The corpse of The Demonic Leviathan, which was slain by Bolas, was located on Dominaria (also known as The Talon Gates).
Quote from Boyachi »
Are you telling me a land of giant monsters will not have a single familiar face, like the Leviathan that fought Nicol Bolas, Marit Lage, or evening a Lhurgoyf? I mean...there are many legends that have shown up twice in commander products (yes, excluding anthologies) so I think we still have a good chance of at least a familiar reprint.
Quote from Red Macca »I just want to know how can you get 5 (five) basic lands, conveniently of each color, on 3 (three) boosters.
Quote from FunkyDragon »Where are people getting the Kiora rumors? I've seen it in forums but no one seems to have a source. I don't remember Gavin Verhey saying it in his announcement video, either.
Quote from Tiro of Meletis »Yes! It makes sense that The Theriad is The Iliad and The Odyssey is represented by The Callephia. I always took Callaphe to be the Jason trope, but she appears to be more Odysseus. I wonder if it’s the Thassa champion version of it told by Merfolk. Many myths speak of Callaphe stealing from gods and tossing their trinkets over the Waterfall at edge of the world, or sailing into Nyx, or dueling Thassa. Makes you wonder if Callaphe is many different people, but the true Callaphe herself was actually devoted to Thassa, since Thassa claimed she was when fighting Kiora, which conflicted with all the different myths about her from Godsend. I always thought it was propaganda for devotion, we’ll just have to see.
Yes, I really want a Callaphe card. And I hope we get some Arixmethes references on a saga depicting the sinking of the city, a land, flavor text or art.... or something.
And yes I do love Greek mythology and Greece! I’ll have to check that out. I absolutely adore Theros and from what I’m seeing here this is yet another slam dunk, even better than the original with sagas and more enchantment focus. Omen of the Sea alone will find itself in all my decks
Quote from Courier7 »Going all the way back to page 1...who buys their MtG products at a Walgreen's? Just curious. I am certain some do but I would not have thought to look there for it.
Quote from BlazingRagnarok »
Pegasus and Medusa (well, not in MTG, but in many other media) welcome Typhon to the club.
Quote from Xcric »
not just that, but do commander players even care what plane we visit? format doesn't really impact the popularity of a set, or the desire to return to it... the cards do.
yeah those legacy players sure are hyped to return to zendikar! dominaria sold well because it once had lightning bolt printed in that setting! ...see how silly that sounds?
Quote from Mimeofacture »If it were me, I would have actually started TWO years earlier with Scars of Mirrodin, just for the cutesiness of like, being able to tell people about it: "You know how Modern starts with Mirrodin? Well, Pioneer starts with SCARS of Mirrodin." Idk i feel like it would make it easier for people to wrap their heads around, plus we'd get the Titans from M12! And if they brought Historic back to Kaladesh from the Beta, then all three non-rotating formats would start with an artifact set, if people wanted to conceptualize it that way.
Idk, I just think that, since Modern's start date is so well-established, the other non-rotating formats that start from somewhere should be able to relate back to that same kind of starting point in some way, just so people can think like, "Oh well this one starts from this artifact block (Modern-Mirrodin), this one starts from the next artifact block (Pioneer-Scars), and this one starts from the most recent artifact block (Historic-Kaladesh)" rather than, like. if you ask a player to remember all this stuff, MRD/RTR/XLN feels a lot more arbitrary
Quote from RSSR »You think Theros: Beyond Death is the name for this set?
