    You people are really pissing me off with your irrational attitudes to things. A lot of you need to STFU and be gone.

    You're about as relevant as Trump's presidency at this moment so knock it off.

    'buster



    How is it that people on this site can insult a president, who has absolutely zero to do with this game or it’s company, and other posters on this site because thats how feel about Trump and they don’t get a warning for insulting someone.....yet if you insult Mark Rosewater you get a warning for insulting someone? The hypocrisy is off the charts here.

    You'll never grow as a person from inside an echo chamber.



    This place has become a shill echo chamber. You can’t say anything against WotC without people and moderators REEEEEing! you for it.

    The only way to stop them from this is to STOP BUYING THIS PRODUCT AT THIS PRICE POINT!

    Players need to show fiscal discipline and refrain from spending on these. Then it will stop. Problem is 95% of the Magic Market has the backbone of an elderly Jellyfish and will talk about not buying then go right out and buy it.



    Is that other 5% the minority of forum posters who bray like farmyard jackasses about how evil WotC is, then also continue to play the game anyways?


    Do you destroy things from a company you dislike after you already bought them? No you don’t. I can continue to play the game with others with they cards i own before i stopped buying any more. We can love playing the game without continuing to support the company. Is that too difficult for you to understand?

    Everyone whinging about fetches not being in a standard legal set better buckle up, because that ain't changing any time soon. WotC explicitly DOES NOT want fetches + shocks in Pioneer, meaning any reprints are going to be in supplemental sets.
    As far as the Secret Lair itself is concerned, I'll finally accept THIS as proof they care about the secondary market. Prior examples people were holding up COULD have been attributed to the printed rarity of the cards, despite what many people here seemed to believe. This is 5 rares, so that's officially dead. That being said, I don't consider opting to NOT cause the secondary market to collapse in on itself to be a bad thing. They're prioritizing maintaining customers over replacing them.



    Allied fetches were auto banned in Pioneer! Why would enemy fetches not be auto banned in Pioneer? Seriously the answer is right ******* there!!!

    The Fetchlands... Well, I guess I'll have to get them, but the price OMG



    No you don’t. This kind of thought process is exactly what people need to stop doing. Constantly high-fiving WotC for terrible things has done nothing good.

    Could everyone please shut up about “virtue signaling” and all the other terms that act as a thin veil for you not liking women very much? If this product was all legendary male characters to celebrate Father’s Day or something none of you would have any issue with it.


    WotC around May 10th- Secret Lair: Mother’s Day
    WotC around June 21st-(absolute deafening silence)
    And you know damn well thats whats going to happen.
    Followed by MaRo’s answer when people ask being ‘I thought they we’re gonna do a Father’s day one since they did the Mother’s day one. Sorry for not checking.’ cause he’s still gotta shill the agenda line despite being a father of three.

  • posted a message on oubliette is. Coming soon in a set
    Honestly their just going to use text similar to phaseing to clear it up.
    Just going to have it treat the creature and everything attached to it as though it doesn’t exist until the enchantment leaves the battlefield.

    Screw this garbage. Support your LGS instead.



    WotC has pretty much given up on LGS’s back in 2018. And WotC won’t start screwing this up the third iteration of successful products like they always, so next year. Then they’ll keep pushing it until it stops making money then abandon it and wonder why is started to fail while they ignored customers comments on the matter.

    How to fix this card? Well realistically don’t print it because its a waste of design and card board.
    Theoretically? Have it tap for three mana in any combination of colors. Why? Because your giving your opponent(s) the ability to play the game better than you.

    Quote from Jiyor »
    Wow that Hoplite is actually a worse version of Evangel of Heliod. I didn't even know that was possible. Considering Setessan Priest is literally a straight upgrade most of the time to Nylea's Disciple (unless you really wanted that centaur and/or archer tribal).

    PRO
    -1 CMC (4W from 4WW)

    Neutral
    Soldier typing instead of Cleric

    CONS
    -1 Toughness (1/2 from 1/3)
    -1 Devotion (W from WW)

    Oh and its not even a lower rarity like common. So this is meant to be just as rare in a pack as the Evangel.


    This being a Soldier itself makes it far outclass Evangel. Evangel is now garbage because this exists.
    Edgewalker.


    A Cleric making Soldier tokens in a Cleric deck is stupid especially when you have to go multicolor to do it make it a little cheaper. Unlike a mono white Soldier making mono white Soldier tokens in mono white Soldier deck.

    Did this thing hitch a ride with Ashiok from Ravnica (assuming Ashiok was even on Ravnica for War of the Spark) to Theros? This also rewards surveil really well.



    He literally has a card in War of the Spark meaning he was there.

    Quote from Creedmoor »
    I am sick of the giant chains already. I'm really not feeling the art design of these worlds where we just have

    - Giant Chains
    - Giant Floating Rocks
    - Giant Hedrons

    Everywhere. I really miss the old days of magic where we had nice beautiful landscape.

    Rant aside, good reprint.


    Why the hell would a ruined field ever look like a beautiful landscape?

    Again loving how they are mixing and melding the enchantment and graveyard themes. If I hadn't made my heroic deck into a feather deck this would have been great to get back some auras and I believe triggers heroic.


    This doesn’t trigger Heroic since Heroic triggers on casting and this just returns to the battlefield attached.

    We could...but that would involve WotC hiring people based on merit and not solely on their gender and/or ethnicity to check a box for forced inclusivity and diversity.

    Oh, come on dude. Don't start with that whole tirade here. Can you put your favourite toy away for just five minutes please?


    Oh your right... i forgot that only WotC employees can say whatever they want on company time that has nothing to do with the game. But here on a free forum people cant voice concerns because it doesn’t agree with WotC.
    I guess continuing to ignore it will totally make it go away...
    I will say i surprised you didn’t just report me to the forum masters like they want you to.
