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".
Jan 17, 2021I'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?Posted in: Magic Rulings
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.

Jan 14, 2021ashrog posted a message on [KHM] Niko Defies Destiny— TheAsianAvenger previewIs 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 14, 2021ashrog posted a message on [KHM] Cosima, God of the Voyage/The Omenkeel - Kotaku.AUPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote 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.

Jan 8, 2021I don't think anyone has mentioned: it doesn't poison. So what will our poison counter card be?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
A storyline spotlight depicting Tibalt binding the real Valki with snakes? Or the same thing happening to Tibalt after he inevitably loses?
Jan 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Marek14 »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...
Jan 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Ryperior74 »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.
Jan 8, 2021ashrog posted a message on [KHM] Mothership 1/8— Planeswalker's Guide, Tyvar Kell, and random cardsI 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Based on the story so far, looks like he just bursts in for a bit.Quote from TearingEons »Quote from Lectrys »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.
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?
