There are foils and non foils, bundling and non-bundling. Heh.
Oct 19, 2020arcane7828 posted a message on Secret lair - New life 2020 (no unique cards here all reprints)Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from soramaro »Yeeeah, I get that self-defense is important and it would be one thing if it was Ajani showing a cub how to fight with a stick, but that AW definitely gives off some uncomfortable vibes, with the soldier-like pose and all.
Love the non-Phyrexian Consecrated Sphinx though.
The soldier pose leonin are adults i think, the children are the cubs, ajani is playing with one.
The soldier pose is just to reference the original art
But yes i did get the child soldier vibes initially, which was unfortunate (or not it taught me not to jump to conclusions) -- not a jab at you just my actual reflections
Oct 19, 2020Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Max Rebo »Yeah "The Thran". Kind of really important to the origin of Magic. An uncommon does not do her justice.
Side Note: If MtG made a expansion called "The Thran", it could be one of the coolest powerful flavorful sets of all time. So they won't
This would be very awesome!!

Oct 3, 2020Hmm I guess my opinion is going to be unpopular... but here goesPosted in: The Rumor Mill
I am actually mildly excited about the whole IP , platform divergent thing that this TWD SLD represents.
They can actually build whole TCGs out of other IPs using the MTG resource system.
Its like the old scrylist magazines (terrible stuff) where they try to play decks from different TCGs together (it normally made zero sense since the resource systems were totally different)
But MTG's resource system is pretty open. You know how Maro has these sessions where they fit characters to the colour pie (I think he talked about it in some article about how innistrad was build from the ground up) the resaon for this is that magic's colour system is more psychological profiling. So many characters can fit in. The only weird part in terms of immersion is the sorcery card type. But even then it is just an instant with different timing restrictions. Tech can easily fall into artifacts, and we already have vehicles and equipment. Myself I have always fantasized about wuxia (chinese martial art storie) characters made into mtg cards and in a way portal 3 kingdoms was just a crossover into "romance of the three kingdoms" back in the day.
So this development is both intriguing and scary.
So I really like this development... but I still hope Magic's core lore will survive.
Sep 29, 2020I quite like these things.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Negan's design is sickeningly close to his character so that is a home run.
And Michonne's two walkers are also pretty canon so thats cool too.
I guess there is a certain appeal to it being a real card... tho i dun really care how they do it.
Overall i like this product, not sure if i would buy it but i like it

While I agree with basically everything you said it's always dissapointing when someone makes a coherent argument but ignores that part of their doomsaying is already possible. Richard Garfield, Ph.D.Quote from Xcric »
They break immersion dramatically. Gonna be real cool to attack your jace with jeffrey dean morgan... what next? Shrek? The monopoly guy? Garfield? Its an erosion of brand.
It isn't an apocalyptic future in which we can attack the opponent with Garfield. It is a long standing present in which we can attack people with Garfield
Garfield the cat? Garfield and Odie? I mean we have cats and dog types already... mighty weird heh
Sep 24, 2020meh legacy was "dying" when it started, it only survived because of casual support. Not because of SCG or WOTC, those merely monetised it and brought the public eye to it.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
Those who are supposed to leave will leave, the rest of us will truck on.
So no Legacy is not going to die, with or without the RL.
Sep 24, 2020Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from user-11102155 »tbh i never had a problem with oko, and less do i have a problem with uro.
same is true for jund sacrifice.
i dont know if the reason is, that i am a midrange player, but usually i do not have any problem with the standard format. i dont think there is anything that needs to be banned atm. and if they will argue with diversity i will say, that if they ban on release standard never had a chance to develop any diversity.
maybe i am alone with the oppinion, but i think people complain to easy instead of thinking about solutions how to play vs hard decks. to me this is kind of the thrill that comes with magic... "how do i beat this deck"
no you are not alone, I completely agree with you. And I think the ban mania is a toxic mob behaviour. The worse part is it is a self fulfilling prophesy. Once you start banning, all bets are off on future meta, since literally it BECOMES untested territory. Thats the funny part about everyone blaming wotc for not playtesting. It does not matter if they did, the environment changed.
This crowd that calls for banning, you see them spreading into other formats. Thats sad.
That said, I am now on the ban wagon for bannerism. Ban Uro I say, if only because so many cards have been banned already, why should Uro be spared. Ban Uro.
