    oh-boy just realized something

    since this legendary theme might be casting creatures matter

    you don't think were gonna get a panharmonicon esque card with the words "whenever casting a creature would cause a ability to trigger it triggers twice instead" if that happens never i mean never under any certomstance make it a colorless permanent that would make a emegency ban in edh because of the eldrazis being cast matters
    I seriously doubt a cast trigger doubler would even be printed outside an eldrazi set.


    Hydroid Krasis is probably reason enough we don’t need that in this standard.

    I hope stuff like Arcane Signet being printed means the broken rocks (Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt) eat a ban soon.

    Wizards is not responsible for the commander ban list, so no.


    That said, I wouldn't be surprised if this became an every-commander-precon-inclusion taking over the slot that had, to date, been used on Sol Ring.


    While they don't actually administrate either Commander banlist, it probably irks them that every commander deck they print is duelcommander-illegal out of the box and if they can conveniently change that (by no longer jamming Sol Ring in every deck, but replacing it with a card of comparable demand and utility), they might.

    The name is Cordial Vampire. Affectionate was an early literal translation. But apparently on this forum system thread titles can’t be edited.

    That was my first thinking when I saw the set name. That it’ll have monarch and possibly dethrone cards.

    Any thought to using one of the costlier tricksier Fog cousins? Winds of Qal Sisma will often meet its Ferocious mode for us, and a one sided fog could be quite useful either on the attack (make their tradeoff blocks not tradeoffs) or on the defence (actually be able to take out some attackers). But can we swing the 2 cost for this versatility.

    Am glad I didn't take the plunge on it back when BridgeVine decks were a rogue in vogue, pre-Hogaak.

    Not sure if your game ever goes long enough for it to matter, but Adorned Pouncer is a strictly better Fencing Ace.

    Playing one of these while others of these are on the battlefield, in your opponent’s turn, will put counters on the others.

    If you control a land that can produce white mana (which you probably do, if you've cast Gauntlets of Light) and there's a +1/+1 counter on the Druid, that's accurate.

    Unfortunate nonbo with Siren's Ruse. The main reason I'd want a creature to be a Pirate right now is to make Siren's Ruse a cantrip. But sadly, Ruse'ing this causes it to flush away all its built up counters, including the one it gets for you casting Siren's Ruse. It's just the nature of the creature is that you want it to stick around and not be blinked, when Siren's Ruse works best with creatures that benefit from being blinked.

    Possibly dumb question because Stifle effects are not a thing you really see in Modern. If a walker has exactly enough loyalty to ultimate and they attempt it, you can counter it with this and paying the loyalty is a cost before the fact so the walker still dies?


    That walker was already in the graveyard before any player even got priority to cast a spell like this. What happens to the ability on the stack doesn't change that the walker is already long gone.

    I wonder if this is a ... harbinger (ha!) ... of a return of the Evoke mechanic on Elementals in an upcoming set.

    Nova Chaser and some double strike combat trick.


    You also need some way to make this a little tougher, because Nova Chaser's toughness is equal to Thunderkin Awakener's, and you need the graveyard creature to be less-than Awakener's.

    The fact that Harbinger just topdecks the elemental, and ideally you want it in your grave to get any use out of it, makes me wonder if there's any sort of self-mill play to be made here. If you had another reason to tun a Codex Shredder or Ghoulcaller's Bell, for instance...

    T1 Stomping Ground + Llanowar Elf
    T2 Land + Blood Sun
    T3 Lotus Field so should have 6 mana. Play Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, then untap Lotus Field have 6 mana

    T3 Alternative: Lotus Field so should have 6 mana. Play Nissa, Who Shakes the World but I wonder if this is a dangerous play since Land should no longer have hexproof.


    Would a land animated by Nissa even have Vigilance and Haste, or would Blood Sun strip those? Not sure about sequence of application of effects here.

    If you made your new Lotus Field a creature but it can't hold haste, you won't even be able to tap it for mana again T3.
