Etched foils are the worst. And my only options for Thrasios and Kydele are curled foils or (and I can't believe this was possible) an even worse option, etched foil.
All I ever wanted was a non-foil version of them, and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis. Three cards that will never see the light of day, because it makes too much sense.
At least I have non-foil Arixmethes.

Colored diamonds that are Flawless or Internally Flawless and of a high carat weight (which in turn are expertly cut) are worth millions, and rightfully so. Most have inflated prices due to a monopoly creating artificial scarcity and rarely if ever deserve a fraction of what they're sold for. They are not worthless, but are an unwise investment. Gold on the other hand, is a wise investment. Genuine scarcity of gold dictates its market value, at least partially. Economics can in part influence its price as well for example. Precious stones such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds are far superior investments, because they are naturally scarce in high quality. Diamonds are really the product of a monopoly and tactical marketing. The processes of mining natural stones itself justifies at least some of their value, but not all of it. That said, the Blue Moon diamond is one of the most gorgeous stones I've ever seen.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 10, 2021What annoys me is the game can have all these different IPs, Godzilla, DND, Stranger Things, LOTR...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
But oceanic biomes on lands for diverse themes/art? Outrageous.
A dedicated Gishath-style sea monster tribal Commander? Perhaps in the next decade. Maybe. Possibly. IDK.
More unique Legendary lands for settings like Olantin? New Legendary Lands like Minamo or Nykthos or unique designs such as Scrying Sheets? Once in a blue moon
Return to Kamigawa, or at least a Kamigawa (a Magic IP) supplemental product, even if only a single Commander deck out of 4 or 5? new phone who dis

the art on Resurgent Belief! So GORGEOUS! I can't wait to play it! Surprised Thassa's altar isn't near Purphoros though! Man that art is just bea-u-ti-ful! MINE! FOREVER
GAH I LOVE THIS SET
Also, loving Disciple of the Sun! Amazing art and theme on that card too. Really into all the Sun-related cards without Heliod depictions (per story). They seem to hint that his followers have not forgotten him and he may return. Then again, a sun god is not so easily abandoned...

May 21, 2021I'm so burned out. Game was so good during the Ixalan era, even creatively. Great story, set design, art, growing playerbase, felt like an immersive experience. Now it's product flood, MSRPgate, Secret Lair mess, borrowing from other IPs since creative/Vorthos is down in the most miserable dumps with the loss of Digges and Luhrs, and a solid in-house team - but at least we gained Nic Kelman rightPosted in: The Rumor Mill

They almost delivered the perfect card, truly.
Giant instead of Kraken.
Honestly WOTC, I'm so done. Seriously.
Yeah, it bothers me too that they keep dishing out Giant's to Blue instead of like Krakens and Serpents. Nobody cares about the big dumb humanoid rave. Give us more tentacles and crab claws please!

Jun 13, 2021Magic will surely survive this. Maybe some of you won't, but, to be clear, Magic will probably survive that too. (Believe it or not, so will you.)Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Anyone complaining these don't belong in Magic is hanging on way too tightly. Anyone complaining these drive Magic to an unaffordable place probably hasn't been playing Magic very long, tbh.
While I respect other folks' viewpoints and personal taste, I am unconvinced these are some horrible thing that simply should not exist.
Jun 11, 2021At this rate, one can imagine Commander games in five years will probably sound something like this...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Player A: "I equip my legendary Hobo with Rutger's Shotgun, and swing at your Trailer Park Boy"
Player B: "I respond by attaching Cerebro to Spock, and activate Mind Meld targeting Hollywood Hulk Hogan equipped with Vibranium Shield to remove your hobo from combat"
Player C: "Wait a Second!...Didn't I still have priority to Quantum Leap Mister Peanut and The Monopoly Man when you planeshifted to Trump Tower?!
Player D: "Sorry to interrupt as well, but how many Golden Girl tokens hit the graveyard when you blocked Urkel and Rambo last turn?
Player E: "Honestly, even if you all had The Delta Variant to target me and T-800s equipped with Lightsabers to protect you, I'm still crewing The Delorean with The Cigarette Smoking Man now to go back twenty turns and restart the game."

Really loved this one.
By FAR the best part of the Strixhaven stories, this story is so good it deserved to be expanded into a trilogy, with the other students stories interwoven with it.
The main story has its good points, but it has too much CW teen drama vibe going on, although Professor Onyx is awesome in it. I simply see nothing in Lukka's character motivating him to do this kind of stuff and that is the other week point of the main story.
The setting itself seems amazing, not just Strixhaven, but Arcavios, it deserves a trilogy with the Plane itself as the star with the five students the main characters, without all the Planeswalker drama. So much potential, an insane amount of potential with this incredible taste of what this Plane could be, that gets one so excited, but then we quickly move on.
This is the problem with WotC deciding its not in the novel writing business anymore. Vast wasted potential. I really loved Quint's story (and the other 2) and especially Quint's story and I wanted more of that.
Imagine these 5 characters and in a full sized novel, or better yet a trilogy.
Proves that a world can have good stories without the meddling of PWs. I don't mind having PWs around so long as they respect the rules of the plane they're on. Despite Garruk's personality, he at least changes his attire base on the plane. He does it to better blend in, to hunt, but it's still more appropriate than Jace showcasing the same style blue robe everywhere he goes, or Liliana baring her breast regardless of custom.
I'd totally read a story of the five students. They represent young people who're still seeking their growth and destiny, instead of adults who behave like children, such as some PWs. If anything, Liliana being a reformed black mage is perfect to guide young people of potential mistakes; she learned it the hard way. Five students would also make a great team given their magic, background, and personalities we see so far.
Out of the five students, Killian is likely going to be the group leader. He's disciplined, introspective, and never stop improving, not to mention he already had experience in leading his peers. A leader must learn to question oneself, but not in a self-hindering fashion like Rootha. A leader needs to take charge, where I believe Quintorius prefers to stay back and provide support. A leader needs to have a stronger sense of right and wrong, and Dina is too playful (and daring) for that role. I don't know about Zimone yet, but I suspect she's more interested in academic study of unraveling the real world, rather than making improvement to it; constructive changes requires someone who had suffered intimately. It'd be nice to watch Kilian proves himself outside of his father's regulation, even if Embrose regards Kilian's success a result of fatherly tutelage.

Honestly, whether a story ends up meaning anything to the wider lore isn't all that important as long as it's is well-crafted and enjoyable.Quote from 5colors »
You mean the story that put into motion due to rifts caused by planeswalkers and the whole thing ended up not meaning anything to the wider magic lore beside being backstory/set up for Bolas?
