    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.

    The fact it impacts loyalty abilities means this may actually see Standard play. Loyalty abilities don't cost any actual mana, so if you can untap with a PW, you can use that 4 mana to do some nasty things.

    Worried about this + Wilderness Reclamation, but this is a great reprint for financial reasons.

    The big question now is what the green one will be.


    Regardless, I do hope we get a Vedalken Orrery reprint at some point, as that card is getting expensive too. Maybe it’ll end up in a Commander precon idk.

    Current price 50$

    That number is gonna fall like a stone now that it’s no longer gonna be scarce

    But it’s still gonna be like a 30$ price tag though since it’s very very important sideboard in modern

    Now show me leyline of anticipation please


    I'm hoping for Anticipation too, but with Reclamation decks running wild and Control being such a force, it may not be a good idea. I'd still love it just to crash the price a bit.

    I like it, not sure under what circumstances it would see play, if at all, but it's an interesting way of setting up a red enchantment.


    I think the fact it'll trigger on any permanent you control, not just you, not only means it shocks the opponent if they try targeted removal, but any kind of targeted removal on any of your pieces makes it very good. Especially in Standard, that's really powerful. I can also see this seeing a good amount of EDH play. I don't think it'll be close to the price of Sanctity or even Anticipation, but I do think it's much better than the other two red ones or the old green ones. Hopefully we get a new green one that's better than the old ones. Hopefully we get Anticipation and Void as the blue and black respectively for the financial value alone.
