    How many times is an opponent gonna have 2 or more cards in hand while you are worried about a CMC cost 3 creature they control while you are desperate to return a CMC 2 cost creature to the battlefield by the time a black deck has 7 mana?

    Thank you Wizards (of the Coast as well as this card). Umara Mystic conveniently slips into the spot of Wee Dragonauts and my UR Spells deck survives to another rotation.

    Due to the bounce, the card feels blue. Is it unreasonable to expect a ramp control effect in white in the same set too? Pay 3 for each land beyond first to EtB, sacrifice any land beyond the first to EtB, or simply players can't have more than one land per turn EtB?

    Yes. I always buy Xbox gift cards for online purchases. I may be paranoid, but I also know that new hacks and scams are developed every day. No way I am ever entering my CC number for any in game purchases.

    I am a new Arena player and I had my first experience with this last night. The match was going a bit back and forth. I set it up for opponent to alpha strike for lethal with no cards in opponent's hand. I flashed in the angel that puts you at 1 life if damage is lethal. With all opponents creatures tapped and no cards in hand, I had lethal next turn. Opponent just stopped and let all time outs expire. I was too stubborn to concede out of frustration.

    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.

  • posted a message on World's most obvious combos
    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.

  • posted a message on What Was Your Favorite Block?
    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.
