    GW Zoo with Loxodon Smiter, Obstinate Baloth, and Wilt-Leaf Liege. They are strong in general, but especially good vs discard.

    The art is very expressive, you can tell that she's saying, "So there I was, surrounded by trolls..."

    Who is the God on the other side?



    Birgi, God of Boasting. According to that linked tweet, they asked about the other side and Wizards said there wasn't one. Might have been more along the lines of "we have other plans for the god side".

    I'm not sure I understand the question. If I understand correctly, you're not actually asking about mutate, but whether Goreclaw, Terror of Sal Sisma reduces commander tax?

    If that is the case, the answer is yes. 601.2f tells us to determine a spell's mana cost by adding any increases (tax) then subtracting any decreases (Goreclaw). In this case, the two simply cancel each other out, at least for the first bit of commander tax.

    Is that irony, or does the name just not match the effect? This could have been the foretell hate card, first revealing your opponent's foretold cards, then allowing you to pick ond and put it into the graveyard, thereby defying their prediction.

    Quote from Tormented »
    The omenkeel seems rather insane. Truly lends itself towards a game that is over before it begins if you have a turn 2 omenkeel and your opponent has no meaningful answer - starting turn 4 with 5,6 or 7 mana is a very dangerous place for your opponent. It reminds me of smuggler's copter - not the evasion but a sense of inevitability if it connects a couple times.


    It doesn't ramp you. It just gives you the option to play the lands, which still uses your land drop for the turn.

    So, the card that represents Tibalt's defeat can't destroy Tibalt?

    I don't think anyone has mentioned: it doesn't poison. So what will our poison counter card be?

    A storyline spotlight depicting Tibalt binding the real Valki with snakes? Or the same thing happening to Tibalt after he inevitably loses?

    They talked about this in the past. The reasoning is that a land card represents a connection you make with the land, it's not literally the land itself. Even unique locations can therefore support multiple connections.

    In practice, lands have much higher bar to pass to be considered legendary. And this is completely OK in multiple copies -- second ability is not cumulative and the last ability would bring out all the Gods at once anyway, so multiple copies don't break anything.


    I've heard that argument before, that just means no land should ever be legendary.

    Similarly to how the retconned the way summoning creatures works in the lore. Originally, you ripped the creature from its home plane and called it to wherever you are. That's how Dominarian creatures ended up in Homelands, which is set on a different plane. But that method seemed like you were enslaving and abusing your creatures, so they changed it. Now, you can't summon creatures between planes, it's impossible. You just summon a magical copy. So no creatures should be legendary either...

    Weird it’s not legendary


    That was the first thing I noticed too. I thought the same about the mythic MDFC lands in Zendikar. Shatterskull, the Hammer Pass is a named location, it should be legendary. I understand that they don't want "feel bad" moments where someone can't play their lands, but if this isn't legendary, no land is. There's only one, it even has "the" in the name!

    Edit: I went back and checked the last time we got a new legendary land in a standard set. It was Inventors' Fair. There is one Fair in the multiverse but multiple World Trees.

    I wonder how often the Saga's middle ability will be without two matching targets. It will probably usually switch nonbasic lands. I also wonder how often it will be worth it to exchange the Saga itself for an opponent's enchantment? You give the opponent a 6 life swing, but could steal an about-to-hit-3 ECD or a Shark Typhoon.

    Seems crazy to me that there are full art and borderless variants of like every card in the collector boosters, but no full art snow basics.

    Did the stream provide any explanation for why Vorinclex is in Kaldheim?

    Also, I'm surprised that Niko turned out WU instead of UR. That planeswalker's Mothership article screamed UR to me, especially Niko's disregard for destiny and willingness to pilot their own path, regardless of what others think about it.


    They didn't go over anything Phyrexian in the stream, Vorinclex was at the very end like a Marvel end credit teaser.
    Based on the story so far, looks like he just bursts in for a bit.


    And that's who Kaya next bounty is

    and The person who hired her is completely unknown


    either we’re finally gonna get a confirmed praetor to be dead or this is gonna be kayas first fail on a bounty


    And the mystery gets more confusing on how he got there he may have been there .....THE WHOLE TIME!



    Maybe Tezzeret is on New Phyrexia and is sending the competition away, probably alling himself with either Norn or Gin. I would not be suprised to see Sheodred showing up in Faerun or being the giant spider from Hogwarts


    Isn't Sheoldred dead? Would be interesting if, after Bolas's defeat, Tezz fled back to New Phyrexia, went mono-black and took control of Sheldred's former faction.

    But surely they aren't dumb enough to put Phyrexians (or any Mtg character, really) in the D&D set?
