Quote from OrzhovPlaneswalker »It's Dog. I'm excitedly sounding crazy I know but it's dog. We are getting another creature update!
look at Jumpstart which will share a few cards!
A +1/+1 tribal lord for a creature type that’s never had one. (A creature type with over fifty cards already in print.)
Quote from 5colors »I'm going with Lorwyn walker as its the only major plane not to have a naive walker.
Quote from OrzhovPlaneswalker »Urza makes a lot of sense to me. It's also an opportunity to to show the character in contrast with Teferi. Urza was kinda a b*stard.
I think the leak is legit, which only raises concerns surrounding Insider speculation in MTG finance circles. It's possible that the BoP was pulled not, or at least not merely out of any new concern for the card's power level, but to penalize those that took advantage of the tip and sold high so as to invest in cards that would retain value roughly similar to BoP before its expected tank.
Edit: I do hope that WotC releases a statement on the issue. While it is admittedly bad PR news, I think it would make players feel better learning the dirty secret from the horse's mouth than from other sources, especially for those new to the game. This would allow them to take better control of the narrative and frame the issue as in the process of reform, rather than in state mired by complacency. That being said I don't know what solutions they realy have. We want reprints of valuable cards and in order to cater to this need, there will always exist an incentive among employees to profit tangentally and illegally from the process.
But is it really that possible to pull a card that late in production? Few leaks are perfect in the information they provide
Quote from Ryperior74 »Wow
Two of them are correct
The ban and how companion is being changed
It would be one of the best reprints to date if grim tutor is here
And when it's said ugin is it either of the reprints or a new one
Hopefully it's a flip-walker ugin so we can get a commander playable ugin
But still taking with gain of salt since phasing is a 8 on the storm scale
I made this thread to discuss the narrative (if any) and flavour of C21. I don't know that there will be a story. MARO said in his State of Design article last summer that there was felt by some players a measure of dissappointment that Core 2020 had no storyline to it, yet I'm not convinced the disappointment was sufficiently strong so as to strongly necessarilly impact the design of future Core sets let alone Core 2021.
Standard-legal sets and thier storylines take a lot of time and energy to figure out and the much of the design process is likely to have been finished a year before a set's release. Regarding the narrative, this is especially if one plans to have outsource any work to outside authors. Core sets also have looser narrative themes, allowing thier design to built in a way that gives developers greater flexibility to ensure the product meets the needs of both Standard, and players new to the game. I'm a VorthosTimmy and I sometimes have to remind myself that the IP is first and foremost that of a game.
No need to be greedy.
Preview Season for Core2021 begins on Thursday, May 4th. We know the set is going to be Teferi-based and share some cards with the product Jumpstart, whose release will follow shortly after the Core set. That's really all we know, aside from th hints given by Maro today on Blogatog. One could use the few booster-pack themes announced for Jumpstart to perhaps speculate Core21's flavour, design and mechanics, but that's for a different place.
I love Teferi and I hope there are shown in the cards windows into his wild life and the differences of character between he and Urza. This also gives us the opportunity to maybe learn more about present-day Jamuuraa
Quote from SpeedGrapher »If you guys want to donate $5 a month to cockatrice. You can play magic for $60 a year. Totally online. Right now. Then you never have to care about paper magic or Double Masters or Masters Gold Edition Deluxe version 15x again. You can keep complaining about the price if you want to but it won't do anything. It's a luxury paper product made for people with large amounts of disposable income.
There are many examples of this in life. Deck of playing cards $5. vs Magic booster case of a new set $600. In one you get everything you need the other you don't.
Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani – $60,000 Per 750ml OR Tap water for .03 a gallon.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8M) OR Chevrolet Spark $14,095
$60 board game you can play for forever until you get bored of it OR Lots of Money on Magic.
Due to Corona Virus I'm buying no magic cards at all. I can get another hobby if magic goes under.
I think I'm spent on this topic after that.
