City of Heroes was a supreme MMO, so much character design, even the same “class” could be modified into your personal uniqueness. Healing with darkness (via damage) plays very differently from healing with radiation (mutates your target while you heal), tanking with Will Power too plays differently from Super Strength, the list could go on.
And Mastermind, Warshade, Widows, etc, that game allows you to play true hybrid in YOUR own way. I cannot complain.

Mar 16, 2019If we look at the traditional tank/healer/dps triangle, I imagine your style would be very different depending on which mana you "tap" into. For examples:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
W: Traditional/protection tank.
U: Dodge/avoidance/illusion tank.
B: Life drain tank.
R: Mobile/agile/anti-WU tank.
G: Regeneration/buffing tank.
So a Rakdos tank might stay alive with its life draining and has various ways to disrupt an opponent's skills/defense (discard).
W: Traditional/protection healer.
U: Provide illusion/counterspell to ward teammates.
B: Blood drain, undeath (temporarily invulnerable/unkillable).
R: Healing via damage, provides teammate the ability to become more powerful because of damage (berserking).
G: Regeneration/buffing healer.
A Boros healer might act like Lightning Helix on legs (literally), and a Rakdos healer might go with Vampiric Link and Reckless Charge.

To summarize it:
1) It took him 9 months to write the book.
2) The book will have 12 POVs and almost 100 named characters.
3) We will see all 10 guilds in the book. Some will be more fleshed out, some less.
4) Teyo Verada will be one of the main characters. As a novice planeswalker, he will serve the purpose of a plot device to explain things from his point of view.
5) Another female character whose name sounds similar to "Rat" will have a connection to Teyo. We will know more about her very soon, maybe this weekend.
6) Expect the alliance between Karn, Ob Nixilis and Dack Fayden. And more weird alliances.
7) Chandra will survive since her comic takes place after the War.
8) Not all planeswalkers are as lucky as Chandra.
The book will be released at April, 23.
Gah, Dack would steal all the Legacy if he lived back in the days!
Mar 14, 2019Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from AUTUMNTWILIGHT »I wonder how many Colors you could master. Beyond 3 is Rare after all in Magic.
I wonder if its breadth versus depth ie only enough skill points or whatever to go deep into two but you can trade focus for versatility by dipping into other colors.
Could Tie Classes to Color Pairs I suppose...Racial Bonuses. I mean Humans, Elves, Leonin, Vampires, Kor, Merfolk?
It’s also possible that if you go three colors you’ll also get a main color (being your core) while the other two are weaker be comparison.
Mar 14, 2019Given City of Heroes, I can see us players each has a combination of abilities derived from multiple “sets” or colors in MtG term, as our core abilities. Players who invest in extra white are likely better tanks, for example. Each color should have pet class abilities similar to that of a Mastermind in CoH.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
I say this because I love CoH and this MtG mmo might bring back familiar elememts I so craved!

I wonder, will us play as PWs or will us once again *cough* be stuck on Ravnica? Not that it’s a bad plane, but I prefer traveling multiverse.
Mar 13, 2019Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from Dunharrow »I wish the Enchant Worlds had different rules... so weird that playing one will destroy the one already in play. "I play this broken enchantment I build my deck around, oh, and I destroy yours in the process."
Don't you think that's precisely why World Enchantment should have that rule, because they affect the game greatly? It allows WotC to design strong enchantment without people using multiple copies of the same "broken" card.
Mar 11, 2019Dubious ReturnPosted in: Commander (EDH)
Put target permanent card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under its owner's control. For the rest of the turn, whenever an ability controls by that player triggers, gain control of that ability. You may choose new targets for those abilities.
"I swear there're a few missing parts..."

There is anything more on the two GS walkers than their bios? Because I have no idea where you are getting this info from.
What I recalled was that the boy Yanggu thought her a deity in the story, but after searching again I couldn't find the info, and even if that's the case she wasn't a true deity either (despite being a PW is like being a god). I likely remembered it wrong.

Its been a frequent question for Brandon Sanderson, about Davriel and what he would think about Liliana and her contracts. When you read the book you start to understand why the question is asked quiet a bit.Quote from Yandere Sliver »I mean Lili is especially dense when it comes to demon/dragon pacts.
Will be entertaining to see what set of abilities they give him with WAR.
Who knows, Davriel might make a good pair with Tibalt.
Mar 8, 2019cyberium_neo posted a message on 36 planeswalkers in war of the spark officially confirmed also stained glass art in better viewPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Yandere Sliver »Mu Yanling has very different design however.
Somebody pointed out that Jaina might be Tacenda Verlasen.
"Tacenda is primarily red but secondarily green and white," according to Brandon Sanderson, so the color scheme is a little off.

Full missing (who are alive) list is Garruk, Tezzeret, Yanling, Koth, Estrid, Aminatou, the Kenriths, Dack and Daretti.
Garruk is missing and perhaps addled to the point of ignoring the summon. Tezz might've found out of Bolas's intention and left.
I thought Yanling is the wing-blade lady, given it suits her design. Koth busy fighing Phyrexians or is dead.
Too little is known about Estrid. Could Aminatou grow up to become as powerful as Bolas? She did manage to ignite her spark early and is considered a very powerful PW even at her age.
Kentrith busy playing. Dack is still stealing.
Daretti last seen on Kaladesh, having too much fun at the moment?
Mar 8, 2019Noticeably, Aminatou and Estrid are also missing and they are relatively new. While several others on the 36 are just as green as them, Aminatou's power level is considerably higher.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Mar 17, 2018This is one of my favorite sets, with so much flavor that it makes the game fun fun fun. Kirins, Mars, Epic spells, Legendary flips, Channel cards, etc, just so many things to build around. Cards these days serves functions more than flavor, and flavor is what entices most players to build decks.Posted in: Articles
Mar 14, 2018cyberium_neo posted a message on Dominaria Spoiler Digest - Who's Who and What's What from the Release NotesThe flavor in this leak is grandeur... Yes, I am hoping for the grandeur mechanic to happen in this block. (Unlikely, but one could wish)Posted in: Articles
Mar 7, 2018Well done, I'm glad you made it clear that Mythics shouldn't be the sole contribution of valuable cards, and people should stop complaining about Mythics not being pricy, consider they don't show up as frequently as rares.Posted in: Articles

Feb 9, 2018Every set has hidden gems for decks, most recently Burning Inquiry and Goblin LorePosted in: Articles
And personally I like the rhystic, land sac, and mana-free spells. If they power up this set a bit, they could very well be a go-to prison/stax expansion. And I think Prophecy's weakness is justified considered we just came from a horrendously underplaytested Urza's block, same reason why Kamigawa was criticized for its weaker overall power after Mirrodin. I personally prefer looking at an expansion without comparing power level, though I've always been a sucker for interesting mechanics like Hellbent and Forecast.
Oct 12, 2017Posted in: ArticlesQuote from Jay13x »We've already 'returned' to it with supplemental products, but Maro has said pretty much the opposite about returning. That's why it's so low on the Rabiah Scale.
Frack, I was hoping descendant of Umezawa somehow return (with Kamigawa drizzles) to kick Bolas's arse again.
Oct 12, 2017Back when WotC writes a lot of stories for each block, sigh, I miss that time. What Kamigawa lacked in card power it has tremendous amount of characters and lore, I love to return to it one day (which I believe Maro confirmed), I just hope they don't butcher it like Return to Ravnica and Battle for Zendikar.Posted in: Articles
Aug 8, 2017Always love to read about other people's collection of the lore, well done!Posted in: Articles
And though Amonkhet was not as developed, it succeed in making people feel for the world, curious for its history. The last line of the chapter Endure gave me goosebumps.
Jul 22, 2017Posted in: Articles
Heliod behaved very "white" in the story. White is the color of authority and rules, at times to the point of rigidity and tyranny. Heliod considered himself the big daddy of Gods, thus his position is not to be challenged, be it power or knowledge, even if such position was self-imposed by his ego.
Looking at Amonkhet gods after seeing their Theros counterparts, gotta say I much prefer worshiping the Amonkhet denizens, Theros Gods dastardly immaturity serves as good lessons and awful acquaintances, except perhaps Kruphix and Athreos.
