    I think the translation is wrong, the French name means "(female)Diviner's Chest", which would fit the crunch too.

    Kaalia would have been better in MH1, it'd be so fun with all those Changelings running around. Golos has me very intrigued, a legendary artifact creature with a proper name that doesn't seem to be a mindless automaton or construct? I can't recall anything like that except Karn himself.


    Memnarch?


    True that, then again, Memnarch appeared in the original Mirrodin block, waay back in 2003. I hope they expand on Golos' history at some point.

    Oh, well, Mono-U got a better Surge Mare of sorts, or at the very least, a Chainwhirler-proof 1/1 flyer. I'm surprised they decided to bring protection back since it's a very uninteractive mechanic, at least it seems to be absent from commons, else Limited could devolve into a snoozefest.

    It feels like this guy is costing one extra mana, it would have been a really cool alternate Quirion Dryad at 2 mana, as it is, I don't see this being used in Standard.

    From the designers that brought you Thought Erasure Get Rekt, now comes I'm gonna F...ry your Teferi real good. I'm gonna love frying some Teferis or Angels with this. That's what a needed SB card looks like.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of stuff can be done with the zombified Regisaur in more casual formats, but I think people are overreacting a little. Right now there isn't so much stuff you'd actively want to discard in Standard, and having that guy hit by Tyrant's Scorn or Cast Down or pretty much any removal after you've discarded is giving your opponent a free 2-for-1. I can see it being played as an SB card though, an early 7/6 can send Mono-R and probably certain control builds into panic mode quite easily.

    What the.... who is that? Uhh

    (Its a movie/TV star roleplayer, dangit cant think of his name : WORMTONGUE! Brad Dourif )



    Anyway...…...Very Very Very Good Card.

    Im not sure I can get over that art. Its freaking me out. Looks sooo weird. Absolutely NOTHING like we have all know Sorin to look like. It is off putting.


    You beat me to it, I was going to say he looked like the super creepy Dr. Gediman from Alien Resurrection, ie Brad Dourif.

    The card itself seems good, I like those more narrow planeswalker designs, make them more suited to specific strategies rather than auto-includes in any deck that runs their colors.

    Quote from the n00b king »
    Goyf barely sees any play (if at all) in eternal formats these days. It's been eclipsed by bigger and better things.

    Even in standard it would just be ok. It's a vanilla creature that gets stone walled by a 1/1.

    Getting lands in the grave is pretty hard in standard.

    Most card types we see are:

    1- Creature
    2- Instant
    3- Sorcery
    4- Planeswalker

    That makes it on average a 2 mana 4/5 with no other abilities. Personally, I think it would be just fine. People might think "wow goyf in standard" and then never actually end up laying it cuz green has better things to do than cast a french vanilla cookie monster. I can buy into this.


    I have to agree, whether fake or not, once you get past the "OMG Goyf in Standard!!" hype you realize it's been outclassed by now, a 3/2 Merfolk Branchwalker would be a better T2 play than Goyf in the current format.

    Nice card in commander and in gates decks in standard

    Also you just need 6 other lands XD wonder how ppl will brew with this in standard


    Commander, I guess, Gates? No way, it's not that easy to have seven different land names in play, and considering how clunky and color-intensive Gates decks are, the last thing you'd want is a colorless-producing land, even Blast Zone is a hard sell for Gates, and we're talking a deck that can play 8/8s for almost nothing, and can afford to include a much better 2/2 maker

    Erasure THIS! =) A cool SB card, this should see play, it's like having a cantripping Lazotep Plating, and again, get rekt Thought Erasure.

    Hell yeah! So that's why it wasn't in MH1, now Modern Gobbos are only missing Goblin Sharpshooter I don't know if it will be enough to make Goblins a real modern deck, but one can only hope. I'll be happy enough if they print enough more Goblins to Make Goblins Great Again in Standard.

    This may very well be the lowly common...oh, wait, uncommon now, with the highest Constructed impact in the set, a free 1-drop sac outlet? Mardu Aristocrats or Zombies are already seeing what to cut to welcome you in little zombie guy.

    Jesus, are you still talking about removing cards from the Reserved List?

    WOTC won't ever do that, it's simply not worth fighting breach of contract lawsuits one after another. They have repeatedly stated that the Reserved List was their biggest mistake, but that they will still honor it.

    Abolishing the Reserved List would make Legacy more affordable and they know it, they know reprints would fly off the shelves, and yet they have never even so much as hinted at the slightest possibility of it happening, which means that they are either:
    A) Really stupid when it comes down to business so they would NOT print a guaranteed massive seller just because.

    B) Not willing to risk fighting the legal fallout of investors seeing their collections lose value, even if that is still debatable, just look at how much an Alpha Shivan Dragon can cost versus the 0,30€ worth later printings of a card that sees zero competitive play.

    I think the answer is obvious.

    On the other hand, snow duals sound...wait for it, cool. With the support snow is getting in MH, I wouldn't be surprised if the next plane we visit in Standard is a snow-based one.
