    Who is ignoring Theros? It’s my absolute priority in the game, to the point it overshadowed all products this year and all other products for every year to come until the third return to Theros for me

    Bestow had potential. Development just overcosted it all to oblivion

  • posted a message on Next 4 sets + other mechanic from eldraine
    Return to Theros is the best news this game could have provided for me. I’ve been longing for this set and it has arrived at long last. I couldn’t be happier honestly. I love that set crest they designed for it too, can’t wait to have it on my new Theros cards.

    I hope Devotion and Constellation appear. I wasn’t a fan of Heroic, Tribute or Inspired (the latter was the worst in the block) but Devotion and Constellation are just too on theme and celebrated to be left out. I agree we will likely only see the mono-color gods, and I am fine with that. I preferred the monochrome pantheon more anyhow. I am surprised they’re only doing one set for Theros, but part of me kinda likes that. I’d rather do one set and more frequent revisits than linger around. I hope we get more sea monster support with Batching, Sagas, and perhaps a cameo by Arixmethes (I really want to see more of the land he’s carrying, and perhaps get a legendary land card for it) and see what Thassa has been up to. Did Purphoros design her a Trident this time?

    I wouldn’t mind Monstrosity returning, if they can bring back a third mechanic. Having an underworld aspect is what perplexes me - there’s no knowing what that could entail, which is exciting and very much a great creative liberty. Theros has a lot to do though - many legends to deliver, enchantments, Sagas, gods, Elspeth, underworld, etc. I hope one set can hit enough of those points.

    Redeeming Zendikar is also very much welcome. I wish we could go there right after Theros and save Ikoria for Q4

    I was hoping each would get their own individual new card

    I really want the reflecting pool. What are the chances we may get it as a non foil reprint like Azusa with the judge promo art was, someday?

    Quote from 5colors »
    Amazon description for Wilder Quest appeared;

    “The exciting new story of Magic’s latest release, Throne of Eldraine. The young warrior-mage twins Rowan and Will Kenrith quest for their missing father, the High King. Rowan and Will’s powers are strong, but the world of Eldraine is a dangerous place! A thrilling mashup of Arthurian legend and Grimm’s fairy tales seen through the unique lens of Magic: The Gathering, here you will find magic, monsters, and mystery true to both traditions.”

    So looks like Princess Rowan and Prince Will are the kids of the king Arthur equivalent of Eldraine who is missing. Since he's gone it might mean Will or Rowan are up for the crown.

    Theory time : Will is the older twin and is staying behind at court to try and play “game of thrones” while Rowan travels out to look for their father. Feels in color for both as well to do these jobs.
    count me in. This sounds amazing, I’m really on board with this setup for the story and can’t wait to read this and see the cards

    Worldly Tutor in the modern frame is the least they could do, but it’s not looking like a possibility, despite the fact this product is the perfect place for such a request.

    Welp,
    All the blue is revealed and I only kinda want one card. Harsh.

    Well, for me personally this year is a bust. I have no problem admitting this set may be for others, and that's fine. I was never fond of mechanics-driven design. Commander is a place to get Vorthos cards, an opportunity to see various planes such as Kamigawa and Lorwyn, past characters, and fill in deficiencies with certain archetypes while delivering needed staple reprints. I am not seeing much of that this year, forcing the designs around (what in my opinion are) lackluster mechanics resulting in random unknown legends, no tribal or archetype support outside of the narrow focus on a specific mechanic, and not much in the way of flavor (I'll grant you Anje). I mean these decks are 3-color decks. Throw a Solemn Simulacrum into all of them. Throw a Cylonic Rift into anything with Blue. IDK. I'm just not feeling it.

    Not that I cared for these legends, but I did expect to see Hal and Alena, the UB Angel Sister, and others this year.

    2014, 2016 and the new cards in 2018 were the only products I really liked. O-Kagachi in 2017 was nice, but that series was plagued by Eminence.


    As a die-hard Kamigawa fan who had waited for O-Kagachi to be printed for over ten years... what we got wasn't O-Kagachi. I'm worried now we won't ever get a real O-Kagachi.

    The art was awesome, though.
    Agreed on both counts. 2017 was hardly my favorite year, but it was still miles ahead of this one. The odd number years are always a miss for some reason.

    Unwinding Clock. In a dedicated artifact deck, you could cast this for 2 or less and build into massive mana fast.

    Pretty sure Oracle of Mul Daya makes sense in any deck with Green. Because you know, lands = playing the game.

It was at least good value though. 2016 and 2018 were the best years of new cards for me. Strangely enough the odd number years are the worst, 2013, 2015 and now this year.

    I’m neither feeling the new cards nor the reprints and especially not the themes this year. It’s a hard pass for me so far.

    I love that Jack Stella art. The guy has been knocking it out of the park. Stella is stellar

  • posted a message on C19 - Commanders
    I’m really not feeling it this year. As a vorthos I could care less about mechanics, and these commanders really are ultra specialized. It’s fine though, last year was amazing for me and I’ve had a lot of cards for my decks get released recently. So I could use a break and for others to get what they want. I do want the new Gerrard but I suspect I won’t be intrigued until Throne of Eldraine
