  • posted a message on Double Masters 2XM New reprint product
    While I agree that the price of this product is on the absurd end, there was an article on MTGGoldfish about how the set is for everyone, regardless of whether you buy a box or not, that raises some good points.

    Personally, hoping for a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, and/or a Time Stretch reprint, which would be with the flavor of this set.


    I’m gonna be so ticked if skithiryx isn’t reprinted here since we got blightsteel


    Skithiryx with the Legendary border plus new extended art Grin ~slobberyslob~

    Oh...oh my...(will need to update the commander of my all foil/promo Skithryx commander deck if he's in)

    There are the Godzilla-themed box toppers, which is new for Ikoria. Ultimate Masters did box toppers as well, though not themed like this. There are also the normal booster fun cards: full art walkers, showcase cards (mutate cards as movie posters), and extended art rares/mythics. The booster fun project has replaced masterpieces for the time being

  • posted a message on [C20] Apparently new cards and Merge mechanic; source link in thread
    Quote from Dontrike »
    Why do I feel like Merge should have just been in a Standard set? Perhaps it is in Ikoria, but a lot of those Merge support cards feel like they are clogging up the list. Also, for an enchantment theme I half expect Eldrazi Conscription in the list, and I say this having seen the leaked list already.

    Since, if real, this is one of the Ikora Commander decks Merge could easily (and very likely) will be in the main set.

  • posted a message on [THB] Commune with the Stars and Banishing Light reprint—everyeye.it preview
    Name-wise, Commune with the Stars does not fit as its number (59) comes after Nadir Kraken (55). Some variant of One with the Stars seems more likely.

    Possible titans returning to oppose the gods?

    EDIT: Mods, when you have the time can you add the Theros Beyond Death three letter to the list? It was not there when I made this thread.

  • posted a message on Sorry to ask, but when is preview season ?
    Technically it began when the gamespot article revealed Elspeth and Ashiok, which was followed by tweets confirming the nyx themed lands and the mechanics videos. We get more tomorrow, as others have said, but won’t pick up again in earnest until after the holidays

  • posted a message on Daxos, Blessed by the Sun (art-only)
    I wonder if we will see a new cycle of the main 5 gods at Mythic and then a devotion-based Nyxborn demigod champion at uncommon. The Dreakhahck key art leads me to think so

  • posted a message on [ELD] Torbran, Thane of Red Fell— ZiggyD preview
    It does not work quite like that. The Gather example is correct because you must first assign up to lethal damage to the blocking creature (2) before any damage from trample can be assigned to the defending player (3). Once the damage is being dealt then it gets increased by two. In your example the 2/2 would first have to assign 2 damage to the defending 1/3. Once damage has been assigned, Torban increases that damage dealt by 2, making your 2/2 deal 4 damage. I believe there was a question like this in the rules forum when Torban was revealed or shortly there after.

  • posted a message on The Wildered Quest (spoilers ahead)
    So this, and Throne of Eldraine as a whole, is happening before the events of Battlebond then? Or am I misunderstand what Caranthir meant by spark? Overall sounds interesting and thank you for the information. How is the writing compared to the WAR novel?

  • posted a message on [ELD] Forbes article introducing Oko, the Fey Shapeshifter (no card spoiler)
    Quote from user-11102155 »
    so in 3 weeks we have the prerelease, when will actual spoiler start ?
    tbh i prefer a slow step by step introduction of a set, so that u have time to "explore" the set, give each card a spotlight. guess its to late for that, does it mean we get everything within 2 weeks ?

    Pre-release will be the last weekend in September, which is 4 weeks away. Spoilers will start next week.

    (Disclaimer: I'm Chinese-Canadian.)

    Interesting angle on the ethnicity Oko is closest to facially: East Asiatic (more Chinese or Japanese). I can even imagine him coming from an ancient China/Japan-influenced society that values harmony over individuality. They've pulled off the Yosei angle well enough, IMO.

    ...Darn, here was me guessing that Oko was from Eldraine, and now I'm probably wrong.


    The interview suggests hes not from Eldraine.

    I don't think he's black. He not looking for power or acting out self interest, his main goals seems very Xenagos to "liberate" and "reveal" the truth of tyrants and overall help people.

    EDIT: He could also be three color to help with the walkers in standard, makes him harder to play and thus is one less walker to worry about in most decks. They said this why they did Tamiyo three colors during SoI since Jace, Kiora and Dovin where all in back to back sets.

    I find him to be very similar to Vraska backstory wise (at least given what we have been given). He was tortured and this torture caused him to spark and wants to get back at those who tortured him. He's going about it by using his shapeshifting abilities to cause distress, his pranks are on the cruel side (impersonating a mother's child so she think's he's home safe from a conflict, ruining a wedding day, upstaging someone out of spite). To me these seem more like black-aligned versions of pranks instead of the more chaotic versions you see in red. I'm hoping for a three color walker (if so, then very likely Sultai as we have a Temur one already) but very likely two.
