    Quote from user_938036 »

    Wow, i thought they learnt from the big mistake that was Ludevic... instead they make a character like Sengir a crappy monocolored commander.
    Partner is already unispired as hell and this is even more. Why Halana and Alena have simple partner and not partner with? Why the prismatic piper is the most unispired thing ever?
    I was incredibly hyped for this set, but if partner is the big thing, i'm gonna pass.
    The issue is that people have stopped complaining about Ludevic years ago, but are still complaining about Thrasios and Tymna to this day. Those two also probably the reason Sengir is "nerfed." I think they got scared of partner halfway through, but don't have enough Battlebond-ready printers to do partner with.
    You are misremembering the problem with Ludevic. Ludevic's problem was that it didn't do what Ludevic does. It wasn't even in the right colors. While Sengir here is a fairly perfect representation of what he should be. He has a significantly stronger "Sengir" ability and a reasonable extrapolation of that ability for players. As far as on point legends go this is one of the best considering most of this characters renown is about their legacy in other cards rather than their own story. If you're just complaing about power level don’t pretend its a vorthos concern.

    As far as the piper is concerned its a beautiful fix to an unreasonable problem. The problem being "We built a commander draft set. What if they fail to draft a commander in the right colors?" It's a problem they could probably ignore and it only matters 1% or less of the time. But they knew it could be a problem so they made a solution. I'm certain everyone complaing about it being unispired couldn't come up with a better solution.


    Could give it more functionality. I mean it's a 5 mana 3/3.

    Something akin to:

    Whenever you can a spell of the chosen color, do the following:
    If green: create a 0/1 green Plant creature token
    If red: deal 1 damage to target creature or Planeswalker
    If blue: scry 1.
    If black: each opponent loses 1 life
    If white: choose a color, target creature gains protection from that color

    Obviously more balanced than what I put, but you get the idea.

    Glad there's foils this time. I play only foils, so having Secret Lairs in non-foil is a no-go for me.

    They finally figured it out.

    Looks like I may start playing MTGO again.

    Good Riddance to:

    Inverter of Truth
    Underworld Breach
    Walking Ballista

    I guess I'm also good with Kethis, the Hidden Hand as it combos with who knows what???

    Combo Winter/Spring/Summer is now basically over. Grin


    I'd say its evolving. There's already a new Lotus Field deck crushing leagues, and its the same basis that existed before Underworld Breach came out.
    Back to Lotus Field + Thespian's Stage.

  • posted a message on Amonkhet remastered
    Quote from Flisch »
    I don't understand why they bring back only a subset of cards. The Amonkhet cards were in the beta. The code is still there. (I mean, even if it isn't or the code architecture has changed since. As soon as you program in the block mechanics, which they do, then the rest is a nobrainer...)

    I really don't understand this move of purposefully expluding cards you already have from the game. Arena was supposed to retroactively add more and more sets going backwards, over time...

    At least that's what I hoped they'd do.


    +1 for "expluding".

    They're doing it for balance reasons. Which they suck at recently. So, they've got that goin' for them. Which is nice.


    I imagine they're just going to leave out draft chaff. I mean we don't really need anything with brick counters. There are a number of cards that I would be disappointed not to see though including the monument's, Vizier of Many Faces, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Champion of Wits, Adorned Pouncer, Earthshaker Khenra, Glorybringer, Abrade, and Never // Return. All of these cards defined the environment for me, and I would be greatly, greatly disappointed if they were excluded. New Perspectives would be the greatest travesty to me, if it weren't included, because it was my favorite deck at the time. Now, I famously got roasted in the official MTGA closed beta forums for "wasting" all my wild cards on the deck to prove a point. (I like to think of it as donating them to science.) I knew that the MTGA client was not going to handle the combo deck very well, but I spent all my wild cards on the deck including New Perspectives itself, the bicycle lands, and Shadow of the Grave. I recorded a number of videos of me playing the deck and pointing out that no matter how fast you tried to act, your turn would time out, as activating abilities wasn't counting as an action to keep your timer at bay. You would always lose the game, even though you were a few actions away from winning. I lost a couple of games with Approach of the Second Sun on the stack. I loved the deck in paper. You really had to know how long you could survive against aggro without going in, or you'd risk whiffing, and it was good fun. I took it to a number of events. I really love the deck, and we recently had Ikoria that had more cycling cards, so I think even more could be done with it. At least, for the love of god put Approach of the Second Sun in. It was such a fun card to grab, and it gave me a solid win condition with Lich's Mastery.

    I hope we get a Jace that isn’t hooded. Come on show me his handsome face Frown


    could the dual lands be the enemy tango lands?


    I wonder if the mechanic is DFC lands


    Found a better resolution of the key art Wink

    I also added the boosters, I'am still wondering what that black smoke on Nahiris picture means.
    Quote from Urabrask »
    And here is a better look at the theme boosters, all taken from the wizards wpn page.


    We had Jace the Pirate, now it looks like we have Jace, the Alpinist?

    There's our 4 color Omnath. First green, then added red, followed by blue. Looks like he has a white arm in the image. Maybe Omnath, Locus of Zendikar?

    The black swirls behind Nahiri remind me of the Blackblade.

    That goblin makes me think Warren Instigator for some reason. Hopefully its not Raging Goblin.

    Oh damn, reprinted Arixmethes already? That's a bit random. We needed a Thrasios and Kynaois and Tiro of Meletis reprint before this one if anything.


    Those do need reprints (Thrasios especially, DAMN), but Arixmethes needed a foil treatment.

    Also, you’re the last person I’d expect to have to “sell” this idea to.

    Haha I actually do not like foils. However, I am excited about the idea of getting Arixmethes foil and having multiple versions. I just want a Non-foil thrasios and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis


    Lol, I read this thread specifically to see what Tiro of Meletis's, Worshipper of Arixmethes response was. Laughing

    Quote from April »
    I'll probably be in the minority here, but I actually like the borderless art version. I like seeing it actually look like a "Dark Confidant". It's nice to see someone whispering sweet evil plans into someone else's ear.


    I've always disliked the Dark Confidant artwork that wasn't the Bob Maher, Jr. art. This box topper art is the first new Bob art I'm actually on board with. Orzhov is my favorite guild, so maybe that helps.

    Found this on Twitter. Apparently the panorama Urzatron art has a lot more Easter eggs, namely:
    1) Strip Mine
    2) Defense Grid
    3) Extruder
    4) Urza's Factory
    5) Mana Matrix


    Playmat when?
