    So, any creature with Changeling and then this? What is lowest CMC and most playable Changeling creature in a relevant color combo?


    One changling and any other creature. You can't meet both conditions with a single creature. First condition is "gas a trait", second condition is "does not have that same condition".


    I stand corrected. The non-human text's significance escaped me until you pointed it out.

    How many recent sets is this where blue gets an alternate wincon? I've asked this before, but when did this be come part of blue's piece of the pie?


    Ever since they stopped making good blue finishers like AEtherling.



    Great point that you and others have made. I agree. So, what is the last great blue finisher prior to the shift to blue alt wincons?

    There's been seven in the last year, three solely blue, and one of those was in Modern Horizons. If you go back two more years, I believe the number doubles and only one of those are exclusively blue. It's not a blue pie thing, all colors get these.


    I concede your point about the other 4 colors occasionally getting alternate wincons. However, they have a long way to go to catch up with blue over the course of recent sets.

    Been a long time since I have hated such a narrow planeswalker in a set. Guaranteeing I'll open 4 of this guy for every 1 of the other walkers.

    How funny. I've had that complete set for two decades, Looked at, played with, and played against those cards about a million times and not once did I ever see that combo. I favored a Royal Assassin deck then and I would have absolutely gone mono-U or UB much earlier if I spotted they combo.

    By today's standards, was not the best combo. But back in the day it forced my friends to put anti-artifact cards in their decks for our kitchen table games.

    War Barge and Merfolk Assassin from The Dark. The first 2 card combo I ever independently put together way back in the day.

    So, is part of blue's slice of the color pie alternative wincons now? Seems like blue has gotten a bounty of non-cycle cards that allow for alternative wincons in the last few sets.

    This will not be a popular answer, but I loved Shadowmoor, especially limited. Maybe because the first time I drafted it I ended up in "mono white" with an insanely powerful deck. Maybe because I am a mark for hybrid. Whatever the reason, it will always be my favorite.

    This seems like the best one I have seen so far. Can get a lot of use out of this mid-game to late-game.

    So, we already have Out of Bounds, now this. I hope we get Illegal Procedure, Unnecessary Roughness, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, and Play Under Review/Instant Replay too name a few. There are a lot of good, potential names associated with stadium sports.

    We even get all the backstory in the flavor text. Can't wait to hear some " I can't believe I lost to Yargle" draft stories.

    Does anyone know what the artifact in tolaria west was?

    Are you asking about the artifact used against our Heroes or the missing artifact?


    I was under the impression it was the same item. But the answer to either would be cool :p


    If you read the end of the story where Gideon and Jhoira are speaking, there is a confusing allusion to the artifact Blackblade Reforged pulled from the Cabal spy's head . Maybe the reforged part isn't implicit. The one used by the Cabal spy isn't identified and probably some random wand to focus his dementia magic.

    Intersting to note Gideon's revulsion towards the blade and hints/spoilers that he may end up wielding it.
