    Lack of trample is unfortunate, but not the end of the world. This should see Modern and Legacy play.

    Almost modern playable if it wasn’t simétrical on all modes it could be a liliana of the veil (kinda). Looks good with biterblosson too. Hope wotc oficializes a modern brawl, would be fun to build with hin as a commander.

    Imo this will only see play in brawl and the RB aristocratis in standard.


    You're likely just going to be playing it for the body or for some kind of graveyard recursion deck in Standard. This isn't remotely close to Modern playable imo.

    Black mythic.


    The power level of this card and some of the other cards we've seen along with Food as a mechanic makes me feel like this set is going to be significantly weaker than what we've seen the last few sets, and an overall trend downwards in power level. It's unfortunate it has to happen with such a flavorful set as this.

    Food tokens are horrendous without synergies. Was it really too much to ask to make the activation cost 1 instead of 2? Hell, even 1, T: You gain 2 life is infinitely better than this.


    I have a feeling this is the se where the power level goes way down. The power level has been rather high as of late, and I have a feeling Wizards is very concerned about power creep and perhaps is using ELD to calm things down a bit.

    So do we have all the rares now?

    EDIT: With Graffdigger’s Cage we have all 53 rares. The list is inaccurate as red and green both have 8 rares rather than 7, which is why the count is wrong.



    I guess we aren’t getting a 16th mythic. It’s probably just an extra common.

    Kibler’s card was the leaked card as expected. How many rares are left?

    3 rares left. Thunderkin Awakener at 162

    If only this checked across all yards instead of only your own... would thar be too powerful Wink

    This will be good in Standard, especially with all the reanimation strategies putting stuff in your yard and proliferate to add more counters as the game progresses.

    In Modern, with the current meta having so much graveyard hate and this being literally useless with Leyline of the Void out makes me question its viability, at least for now. It could be good at some point. It’s very reasonable to have a 6/6 flying, deathtouch for 3 with some of the stuff some decks play.

    RIP Tron dream. Taplands take the last few land slots.

    RIP Tarmogoyf dream. Thicket Crasher is 196.

    whenever use his -1/-1 ability, draw 2 cards as well?


    Bingo. And he can use it on himself on an empty board.

    This feels like a mostly worse Griselbrand. I'm actually amazed it isn't mythic. For EDH, this is actually pretty great. This + Reanimate is hilarious, assuming it interacts the way I think it does. No reason to put this in over Griselbrand in Reanimator decks, though.

    Whelp, Cavalier of Dawn means no mythic mono-white angel...


    Maro said the Cavaliers would be a cycle.

    Wedge legends

    Mono planeswalkers.


    There’s 15, but Maro said there’s a twist elsewhere. So no mono white mythic angel at least.

    This card is terrible. 4 turns to ultimate, can’t minus the turn she’s out, and the plus is quite mediocre. I get that she’s a 3 CMC planeswalker, but I’d rather she be 4 CMC and be actually playable.

    I hope future iterations are playable. Cool design at least.

    We have a format with a ton of Planeswalkers. And if the return to Theros is true, then we’ll have a ton of enchantments. Creatures, Instants, Sorceries, Planeswalkers, and Enchantments. Sure, we don’t have fetchlands and Field of Ruin rotates out soon and artifacts haven’t really been a thing and obviously there’s no more tribal. However, that’s still a 5/6 for 2. I don’t see it.

    And as others have said, the pic isn’t exactly convincing, however it does kinda look like 196 there with regards to the collector number. I dunno. It would be great for the game and show they’re serious about reprints and pushing the power level, but it is Tarmogoyf and this is a Standard set.
