    So they have to a free our favorite kor right from the banlist? If they are printing more swords.


    Yeah sure why not😜. It’s not like they banned Stoneforge Mystic because of the availability of the three swords and batterskull in that standard or anything....oh wait...they did.

    Seriously though....NO. Stoneforge is Overpowered To The MAX! Being able to plop down any equipment at anytime for 1W is broken.
    WotC has been stuipd and back and forth on things the last 3 some years. Don’t encourage them to break the one thing they do that is intelligent and reasonable....not banning everything else/powering down everything else just to make one card not overpowered.

    I hope not. As much as swords are cool for commander/casual 'wasting' 5 mythic slots for cards that are not quite modern playable would be a shame. They're better off being left for an equipment matters commander precon or a battlebond style product

    Bear in mind there is no realistic chance that a majority of the set is strong in modern, even at Mythic rarity. That is simply not how Magic sets work. Nobody is playing Balefire Dragon in Modern just because it was a Mythic Rare in Ultimate Masters.


    🤣😂🤣😂 It wasn’t even played in Innistrad standard either at the same rarity. At least the swords saw some play during their respective stanard runs. Though yes Light&Shadow and War&Peace didn’t see as much as the others.

    No love for the Myrrodin Talisman enemy cycle completed? If they do not see the light of day in this product I have no idea where they will ever have it.


    All 10 pain lands are already in Modern and do what the Mirrodin talismans do....without wasting mana....and no one uses pain lands in Modern. So i severely hope thay don’t watse new card slots on those garbage talismans.
    They need to finish out enemy land cycles they keep ignoring because they keep favoring allied ones. Even though they keep saying the don’t favor allied stuff, which is only true for Ravnica.

    Just the promise of this set (and its lack of Modern reprints) is triggering the Secondary Market already. Check out the price on Scalding Tarn. Just when I hope a set will make a format cheaper stuff like this happens. Oh well, c'est la vie. Looks like I will be playing a lot more Pauper. Hope there are some decent commons coming out. Smile

    Card price for high demand cards always tend to go up when a set is confirmed not to have them in it. And fetches don’t go down for reprint sets. MM17 didn’t dent the prices of enemy fetches at all, hell the reprints have the same price as the originals. Unless it they come in a 3.99 well printed set like allied fetches did enemy fetches won’t go down at all.

    Because it is good writing to have the Planar Bridge that the badguys require for the plot too work to just suddenly fall into their lap at complete random and then have it happen again in the very next "major story arc"


    I don't even understand what you are saying or how that is remotely related to phyrexians, so no, it won't be good writing


    He’s saing it bad writing if they make Phyrexia the next threat because....
    Bolas needed a planar transportation device for his end-game.
    Phyrexia needs a planar transportation device to enact their conquest.
    It would be recycling the same plot device right next to each other.

    You can have a 3.99 price point, or you can have reprints of expensive modern staples. You're not getting both, forget that.


    Why? We’ve had supplemental sets like both Conspiracies and Battlebond that have done just that. The Selesnya guild-kits had a wanted card worth the price of the box. WotC makes none of the extra money hoarders charge for holding old product, so why support them?

    Quote from AtraxianShade »
    Well... Cards in Conspiracy and Commander skip standard and go directly to other eternal formats, so... Why not?
    It would be a way to shake a stale format without risking breaking standard.


    This is WotC, even if they did a 180 and said ‘Sure you can use the new cards released in the supplemental sets from Commader forward.’ a year later they’ed renege and say ‘Well we didn’t test them for Modern and you all complained highly about 6 cards, so instead of banning anything we’re going back to them not being allowed.’

    My Guesses:
    BW - Vampire/Orzhov
    UG - Explore, Ramp, +1/+1
    RB - Raid / Spectacle aggro
    UR - Izzet Wizards



    RB raid is an option because Ixalan has been in standard for a while. Spectacle cards and Orhov guild stuff can’t be in because the cut off was at GRN.

    Quote from IdlerSpawn »
    Market sets the MSRP. If we refuse to buy packs at more than 3.99 MSRP is 3.99.


    And yet if we refuse to buy at $3.99 they still try won’t go below a certain point so they can still make some profit. And they were already paying lower than $3.99 for packs so they could make profit. And WotC won’t sell below a certain point so they can still make a profit.
    So what is the point of removing MSRP when the while point of it is to ensure that profits can be made by the involved parties?

    They won't even maim anyone. Seriously, how does Gideon still have all his limbs?


    Are you seriously asking how the beefcake guy with the most combat training who can generate a protective barrier around himself hasn’t gotten heavily hurt yet?

    If Bolas does become a god, can't Elspeth just be resurrected and slay him? Seems pretty simple to me.


    Elspeth isn’t inherently a god-slayer. It was because of a weapon that Purphoros created that could slay gods. And resurrecting her isn’t simple because Erebos bars the dead from returning to Theros from the Underworld, which includes Elspeths ability to planeswalk. The only way to escape is forge a golden mask and wear it and become a Returned, which remove your memories of your life. Or as Reviving Melody’s flavor text states a very strong emotional connection to someone on Theros. While she has a strong connection to Daxos who is on Theros....as a Returned

    Does the figure coiled in Bolas’s tail look like Elspeth or is that just me seeing it?

    Teyo better end up being the reason for Bolas defeat. The description leads me to belive Teyo is a literal unkown factor Bolas can’t account for because there’s no way he would have know about him beforehand. Bonus points if Teyo accidentally becomes the old-school powered walker Bolas is trying to return to. Heck that would make the most sense as to why Bolas gets defeated.

    Quote from BB84Prez »
    8 candles remain lit before they started to Snuff Out one-by-one. The top most one could represent Bolas and then second tier could be one of the Gatewatch that usurps Bolas to be the sole Planeswalker. The stained glass appears to show what color(s) each Planeswalker represents.


    The smoke around the last lit candle shapes into Bolas horns, so the last candel shouldn’t represent anyone but Bolas. Since it’s on Ravnica the top most candle should be Jace since he’s the guildpact.
