    I find it weird people think this set is top down instead of bottom up. It’s bottom up Theros, with some additional Greek specific stuff they wanted to cover. The mechanics they brought back still serve the same purpose they did originally, and Escape is all about the story, namely things escaping from the Underworld. Just because it’s not what people want that doesn’t make it top down.

    Escape is all about the story but the set is bottom up? Hmmm?



    Oh, did I mix up top down and bottom up? I meant that Theros is based on flavor first, not mechanics. I think I thought bottom up was that because that’s where the flavor text is, but I mixed them up. Sorry.

    I mean, depending on time frame Ajani may not be free. It’s not like he’s only got Theros on his mind after all.


    I do like how clear the story seems to be even without a dedicated story post.

    Green is the Enchantment color though, followed by White. It’s more of a mechanical thing than a more Vorthos reason. It has been that way for ages. I’m not sure why you’d expect it to change suddenly. The point about Artifacts still holds. Colors don’t suddenly all get amazing cards for supporting that archetype just because it’s a set themed around it. They typically get a fairly small subsection of things.

    I mean, Blue is not really an enchantment color though. To the best of my knowledge it has very little enchantment support. If this was Artifacts it would be one thing, but it’s not. I don’t believe Green becomes a premier Artifact support color in blocks like Kaladesh/Mirrodin. I could be wrong but at least I didn’t recall anything too crazy, maybe as part of a cycle which this isn’t.

    I like him. Curious about how he works out story wise and about the lore around him though. Surprised he’s Green/White, but with only Ajani and Huatli for that color pair if I recall right having a third option is nice. Red isn’t exactly Enchantment leaning either, at least compared to White.

    There still is lore. As for why he was chosen we don’t know yet. We don’t know why any of them got chosen yet. Doesn’t mean we won’t know by the end.

    Something something "evil SJW" and "freedom of speech isn't what I want it to be".

    I mean, honestly that's just cognitive dissonance.

    Find X Enchantments? Wishful thinking but I can hope.

    Really wish it was enchantment. But I do get that would probably be a bit too strong. I just don't tend to build Aura decks.

    When you're supporting someone enacting discrimination and persecution in far worse manners than simply not working for whatever company you want I'm not terribly inclined to be charitable. Clinging to an absolute view like you hold isn't terribly helpful.

    And the US may claim to be founded on that, but in terms of practice doesn't remotely hold to religious freedom from the beginning to now. Nor is freedom of religion the same thing as absolute freedom to say anything.

    Sure, I'm fine with that. They aren't good views to have. It's also completely legal on top of moral in this case.

    As for the US being free I find it more funny than anything that you believe that ever to have been true. Or that somehow what would make the country more free is tolerating intolerance. The only real thing that is up for debate is whether or not she actually holds those views, not if the action is wrong if those are views she holds.

    Freedom of speech is not remotely freedom from consequence.
    How about you enlighten us all on the “consequences” of having an opinion on your personal twitter account that aligns with half the country.


    The consequence, in this case, seems fairly self evident is it not?
