Pauper Review: Dominaria
 
The Limited Archetypes of Dominaria
  • posted a message on Potentially More Unique Buy-A-Box Promos
    Prior to this change, buy-a-box promos were almost always awful, and if this card is an indicator of quality going forward, they will continue to be awful. So really, not much has changed. Like others have said though, if they print something good, a staple even, people are gonna be ultra pissed.

    Real talk, I want Prophet of Kruphix unbanned. It's definitely powerful, but there are plenty of other ridiculous things of similar power that are still legal. I don't know if this is an unpopular viewpoint or not.

    Quote from Colt47 »
    Well, from what I've heard the coating hasn't fixed the curling from people who are opening them. Going to have to wait and see how things go after pre-release.

    I didn't see anything in their press release/announcement that said that the new coating was to address curling. I think the community collectively assumed that was the case. Card stock issues are still very concerning, but they won't admit it's a problem until after they've fixed it.

  • posted a message on juggernaught in dominaria? WHY?!
    This is one of the silliest threads I've ever seen. It's an uncommon with a lot of nostalgia value, and a potential pick 1 in limited. How could that elicit anger? It makes no sense. Go home, OP. You're drunk.

    I disagree with Paradox Engine being banned. It's a really neat card. I love it.

    Agreed. I'm not a combo player generally, so I just like to use it to basically do more stuff on my turn.

    I think Iona should be banned. There's good justification for why it is not, but I don't feel like her being "one of the Mono-chrome drawbacks" is a valid point. The inherent drawbacks of a single color are enough of a hindrance.

    Agreed again. Being able to shut a player out of the game entirely with a single card is oppressive. What are the mono-color player's options, just Duplicant or Scour from Existence?

    I think Eminence abilities in Commander defeat the spirit of the format. Enough to ban? Probably not. But IDK.

    I agree that it's not bannable necessarily, but I really hate that mechanic. Having such huge upsides for no effort or investment is really lame. Mechanics related to the command zone are fine in theory, like the C13 commanders, but eminence rubs me the wrong way. I want to build a Mardu vampire deck, but I won't use Edgar Markov out of principal.

    So. Much. F**king. Errata.

    I wonder how much annoyance and confusion this will bring about. Oy.

  • posted a message on Dominaria tokens
    Ok, duh, the stained glass knight is beyond awesome. I also feel like it's been forever since we've had new art on a soldier token. Actually, I'm most excited for the zombie knight to add some new hotness to my Horde deck.

    This set is spectacular.

    Holy *****. A 7/7 trampler for 4 in a set chock full of cards that nullify its drawback. This thing is gonna be a house in standard.

  • posted a message on Dakkon Blackblade old border deck.... need draw suggestions
    One of my favorite cards ever is Mana Web, and it affects the game in a truly unique way. By the way, it received errata similar to Aura of Silence, meaning that it affects all opponents, not just one.

  • posted a message on Brawl - the format
    I'm going to restrain my cynical side and say that this format is not my cup of tea, but if people end up enjoying it, that's awesome. I don't do FNM anywhere near as often as I used to, but if I did, I'd probably construct a Brawl deck in an effort to be more welcoming to new players who may have one.

    I share your concern, and hope they address it soon. This rule change will probably lead to a ridiculous amount of clunky errata. That MTG app better be kept up to date so I can look up stuff like this.


    You don't need an app, necessarily. You can just look it up on the Gatherer.

    I know that Gatherer is a thing. The point was that this app will likely run better on my phone than Gatherer does.

    Moving on...if they haven't said it yet, I'd be curious as to how many cards will need this errata. The sheer number of cards needing errata has me dreading the change. At some point, it may be tough to remember what spells were printed before or after the change...oh I hate it.

    Am sad the rules text still doesn't tell me if or how cards like Flamewave, Lavalanche, Bonfire of the Damned, Searing Blaze... they give an exception on when damage is calculated from a player condition, but not on when other spell effects are derived by relationship to the 'target'. Will these not be able to hit planeswalkers? Be able to hit planeswalkers but not do damage to any creatures? Or be able to hit planeswalkers and pass their other effects on to creatures controlled by that planeswalker's controller?

    Same concern about Blightning. I really hoped this rules article would actually address the rules ocncerns we've been wondering about for a while. And MaRo has ignored my above questions submitted to Blogatog.

    I share your concern, and hope they address it soon. This rule change will probably lead to a ridiculous amount of clunky errata. That MTG app better be kept up to date so I can look up stuff like this.

    EDIT: I also wanted to say that I really, really like the new frame for legendaries. Dominaria in general looks freakin' awesome, and if it lives up to the hype, I hope subsequent sets can repair the damage done in the last two years.

    Is numbering really that difficult to change? Ugh. Anyway, the Tree's presence in this set is emblematic of its problems on the whole. Tree of Redemption is merely the mascot of this train wreck.
