    I like that it's a spell referencing a legendary creature, in this case Ghalta. I prefer when we get thematic spells instead of "generic creature attacking genetic creature for generic purpose"

    So freaking adorable, I love it. This is what MTG should be about.

    Here we go again

    Looks like a mono-colour legend for each of the five colours, and I'm thinking they'll do multicolour but with shards rather than wedges that M20 had.

    I just hope that they bring flanking in to honour Teferi's Mirage story origins. That would be such a huge (yuuuggeee?) throwback for those who remember Teferi from those days.

    Nice that after 56 walkers we finally see someone Arabic and not another minotaur or something

    Finally some Middle Eastern representation. The Lebanese part of my heritage approves Thumbs Up

    Hello there fellow Lebanese Grin

    I always found Theros closest to Lebanon visually and even ethnically, more so than even Egypt/Amonkhet but it is nice to see Basri regardless, and I hope we get a HQ scan of him soon. Can't wait to add him to my deck. Which of course plays Calix, and every Jace ever.

    For the sacred love of Thassa’s divine bosom, if his doesn’t have worldly tutor reprinted I’m storming wotc and peeing on their cars

    For the record, people can draft a set focused exclusively on reprints if they wanted. It would be a mess,
    But they could.



    We’re beyond this “boosters are for drafting” excuse now that Collector’s Boosters exist. Why is it fine for those packs of reprints to not be made for draft but a set that exists to get reprints into people’s hands must be hamstrung by being a draft set?
    Agreed. I’m just waiting for the same tired slop of “creates a good draft environment” to be in this set frankly

    I’m just waiting for this to have the same pool of boring cards with mana crypt and another mythic or two to sell the set. It’s nigh impossible to find a hurricane, worldly tutor or a whole slew of interesting off the wall older cards that don’t look like chewed up wads of cotton. And they never get reprinted. Hell I know not to anticipate value here but the sheer fact even interesting cards in need of a border and text update can’t find their way here is infuriating


    because draft. Sealed. Reasons

    While I am pleased with a print copy being made I do not believe it was ethical are right to remove the free version from their website. Especially considering the authors desires which were very much to the benefit of the fan community.

    posted a message on [IKO] Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths- Ebook and Story
    There’s just No redeeming Viven honestly. The character had potential, but the only interesting aspect about Viven (lost home world) Samut does better. They could have played up the whole crossbow being ghosts of her former world, her anguish, more about her as a Steve Irwin type explorer (which Kiora does better) to differentiate her more from Garuuk, But instead she just seems like an awful version of other PW’s identities.

    If I were writing the character, I’d have had her start out anguished over the loss of her world, using the crossbow to relive memories of it, then growing the courage to explore creatures of other worlds and realizing nature is all one entity, regardless of the plane, and becoming an explorer as a means of looking to the future and seeing glimpses of her own world through others.

    Instead she’s just everything you don’t want to see in other green based characters, in one character. Her stories are better off avoided.
