    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.

    Now your Elf tribal deck can go T3 Karn Liberated and teach a lesson to all who previously dismissed it:D This has to be one of the most fun designs in the whole set, it's literally 3x Llanowar Elves in one card.

    Nice nostalgia touch I guess, and dollar-store Bloodghast for an UB control deck. Now, if they brought Undermine back, you could almost relive the Nether-Go days of old.

    God damn it, when are they going to hire competent Spanish translators? Pellejo? Really? Pellejo is normally used to refer to discarded animal hide, it sounds disgusting, but I'm not surprised, the Spanish translators are usually terrible...Anyway, if Coldhide Golem fits the crunch, that's probably the correct name.

    Seems like a sweet draft card, but probably nothing else.

    If a Modern Slivers decks takes off, I wouldn't be surprised by seeing it there, it can act both as a very good insurance against damage-based sweepers, make large attackers a liability, or it can also make your own Anger of the Gods, Pyroclasm or Deafening Clarion a brutal one-two punch against creature decks.
    A very powerful Sliver indeed.

  • posted a message on Green lifegain storm card (Weather the Storm?)
    I think this went a bit over the top as a Burn hoser, I suppose there's something like a Flaring Pain for lifegain or even a Sulfuric Vortex reprint/adaptation in the set, else, it feels unfair, just one of these in your hand and you can gain massive CA by getting a guaranteed 2-for-1 when they fire a single burn spell at you.
    Considering that Burn isn't having a particularly good time now, this feels like overkill against it, sure, it can also hurt Phoenix, but gaining a lot of life isn't so hot when you're left facing 2 Phoenixes or worse, a flipped TITI.

    Next one will be Sword of Truth and Justice and the American Way I guess. A Limited-game winner like all of the other swords, and yet another card the Gatewatch should have used in WAR to defeat Bolas by proliferating on all those planeswalkers running around:P

    Oh well, I don't play Commander at all but I suppose this can be abused in the format with any crazy mana engine and good ol' Banefire, too bad this wasn't in WAR, else this plus Wilderness Reclamation plusExpansion//Explosion=an actual nuclear explosion to blow Bolas and his Dreadhorde out of Ravnica:D

    Nah, infinite power with grand architect but no guaranteed way to abuse and win with this on the spot. Imo pilipala is still better as a win con with the architect.


    Altar of Dementia is being reprinted...

    Quote from Ritokure »
    Someone in WotC really, REALLY hates Tron.
    HATES Tron!? What? This says "play" and not "cast"! You can HAVE Tron!
    That's what I meant. This is very good at hating Tron decks. You can steal their Tron lands AND their Karn/Ugin if you manage to top them.


    Why stop at Karn or Ugin? Steal their Ulamog for an instant ragequit:D

  • posted a message on Mox Tantalite Twitch TV stream
    Barring some weird janky combo, this card is absurdely bad. Why would you even consider playing this over Lotus Bloom? The latter gives you a 3-mana boost on T4, that should let you go off, and indeed Ad Nauseam decks do that, but else, we may be looking at the worst mox in history. Chrome Mox and later Mox Opal are on a different league, those give you a mana boost right on T1 or T2, not on T3, there's a huge difference there. Which decks could want this? I don't see Storm cutting a ritual for it, considering it doesn't play Lotus Bloom which would be so much better for their gameplan...

    Ok, that sliver sounds like it could see play,haste and flying for 2 mana? Maybe a low to the ground Sliver deck will be the breakout archetype spawned by MH, at the very least in the Jeskai colors, Diffusion Sliver alone makes blue worth it in the deck. Let's hope for more playable cheap Slivers.

    I don't know how I feel about this card being in modern. It's begging to be broken.

    I do have a question on wording if anyone can help. Why is this card worded this way and not "Sacrifice a creature: Target player puts the top X cards of their library into their graveyard, where X is the sacrificed creature's power."?


    So Affinity Scales can mill you out instead:D Now seriously, anything that can set up a sac or counter loop can use this to deck you in one single turn, sounds dangerous.
