    This is such a bummer and is really turning me off to Magic in general. I don't want to see Gandalf and space marines and all the other cringe IPs they can make a buck off of in Commander and Legacy. Magic isn't going to be the same anymore if it's just going to be like Funko Pops

    The new timeshifted cards better be bananas to make up for the lack of value in a vast majority of the Time Spiral block reprints.

    The only exception would be if the ability targeted. If the option said, "Sacrifice target permanent then draw two cards" then it wouldn't work because you need to choose targets when you play the spell. Since it doesn't you can make the spirit and then sacrifice any permanent that exists after that point.

    Boy do I hope these are not real. Jin is extra gross and the instant speed draw + cheat a spell is stupid good. Not to mention I was really hoping for enemy colored factions with a cycle of duals to complete one of the several unfinished megacycles we have only allied pairs of.

    Are these two sets supposed to come out simultaneously or will there be a set release one right after the other at the end of the year? The article says rotation will be normal, with four sets rotating, but there will be four standard-legal sets released in 2021. Will the two Innistrad sets rotate together?

    I can't believe how much they expect people to pay for these, in particular basic lands. These are the gold leaf donuts of MTG

    Does anyone know how much Time Spiral Remastered boxes are going to sell for? Is there an MSRP or anything? There's a preorder listing on ebay for 250 which seems egregiously high

    We know almost nothing about the set and it's set to release in a little over a month
    already preordered a box off amazon for $140.


    Oh cool. Thank you for replying. I'll look for a better price.

    Was Martin Luther King, Jr against gay people because he was religious and a conservative?


    He was religious, that's undisputed, but what kind of whacked out history have you read that makes you think he was a conservative?


    Another “i m american thus conservative equals republican party” guy? Go read about conservatism (not american conservatism) and read his speachs etc.


    Aside from being a preacher and therefore presumably in favor organized religion, what was at all conservative about him? The vast amount of his efforts were in direct opposition to the social structures and institutions of his day. There may exist conservatives who agree with his overall philosophy, but conservatism is not independent of the social structures around a person. A conservative declaring they agree with MLK does not make MLK conservative, heck even the Republican party does that constantly.

    And yes, I'm American and that shapes how I view politics. I live in a country that's run by 2 fairly conservative parties, so I tend to think of the more conservative one as "the conservatives," but I'm perfectly capable of understanding what conservatism literally means.


    Not to mention MLK was American so it's kind of pointless to try to judge his politics by another country's differing metric. It's either misguided or disingenuous to say MLK wasn't progressive because if he were in another country he might be judged differently. He was involved in influencing American politics first and foremost so he will obviously be referred to in the context he was in.

    "But Bernie Sanders is actually a right wing conservative because if he were in Germany he would be" isn't the winning or even relevant argument some may think it is.

    This used to be a community that was well moderated and didn't allow stuff like this, much less allow the same people to say the same bigoted stuff over and over with little to no consequences, but that just isn't the case anymore. If anyone can recommend a community withh plenty of discussion that will actually put their foot down when it comes to bigots peddling hate speech left and right, please let me know because I'd like to join.


    ^^This.

    Is MtGNexus any better? I know several of the Reddit communities are a bit of a mixed bag and I'm not sure how I feel about the thread format but there there's gotta be other communities right?


    I'll have to check it out and look around. Some of the Reddit threads can be pretty toxic too with pretty lax moderation. I'll look into Nexus and other boards because the constant lobbying for less representation in Magic and bad faith bigotry that pops up every time people on this board see a black person on a card really is driving me away from this website that I've loved for more than a decade.

    Wait, WotC is doing a great thing for Black girls, and your first thought was "what about me?" Yikes.


    At this point it's kinda bread and butter to the MO of some of these regular naysayers.

    All we can do is speak out, block, and/or report.

    There's a persistent pattern here of particular users always going out of their way to problematize greater inclusivity for marginalized folks and folx.

    Are there any good online MtG communities that don't put up with this kinda stuff that one can join?

    The Vorthos community on this here website is still pretty small, and I'd be willing to join other sites and help build a Vorthos/Timmie community there if its user base is a little more progressive than MtGsalv.

    People seem to like the direction too based off of how successful the game is so that's kind of a moot point.
