    Is this the first noncreature permanent to have flying by default? It's a weird design for sure.


    I guess this is based on vehicle design. Previously, the abilities are granted as part of becoming a creature.

    Not for my regular cube.

    I kind of like this for my Artifact cube, if I want the thopter "skies" archetype for UR. Generally I like UR to be the ramp and of course broken combo but this may allow to shuffle around the archtypes. I like that emblem though, being easy to attain too.

    EDIT: non cube related : weird that the art does not match the ability; probably a last minute change in removing a copy ability into the token ability.

    Will add in artifact cube, but not a fan of the attack requirement. Will just trade with a token.

    Wow his ability simply encourages to to attack. Potential cube card.

    Also, nice Cane.

    Not too crazy about this, but yeah seems good. A bit french vanilla for a mythic though.

    For artifact cube it is better fit as there are not
    Much good black cards, and this works for reanimator/welder decks.

    As an artifact cube owner,
    I feel underwhelmed by the previews so far. Would be nice to have an Urza and Mishra in Artifact cube of course.

    The prototype wurm at 3cc is really good especially for draft formats where it fits in 2 places at the curve. Cant want for more prototypes.

    So… there are two main ways to do this:
    1. Create a new keyword that means “when this card enters the battlefield”
    2. Creating a new action word like mill, essentially replacing the words “enters the battlefield” with “arrives” everywhere in the game.

    I personally support the second way. It saves space on cards without turning it into the most popular keyword in the game. It would also let us save space within other abilities as well (Landfall could read “whenever a land arrives under your control,” for example).


    Agreed. I think second way is better as it still uses the “when” template for triggered abilities.

    Arrives or simply “enters” is ok.

    Great art. I wish the artist did not put the small Phyrexian symbol at the center and settled for the subtle symbol (well, not so subtle depending on your perspective).

    Definitely not final cards. The collectors numbers are missing the total count, unless this will change somewhat of course.
    These are showcase frame cards, part of the "extended" set, they do nt feature the total number of cards. I think this have been the case since the beginning (Throne of Eldraine).


    I didn’t notice this for showcase cards. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Based on this number crunch, Blightbelly __ seems to be a black card. (Well, the border is black)
    Also based on the numbers, there seems to be a lot of artifacts, at least in this promo/showcase series.

    Also, on the second pic of Myr Convert is a glimpse of a green phyrexian card, which is info we will get probably in a day or two.

    That is some ugly foiling. And why is the picture cropped? This leak maybe intentional, why else would you not show the entire card?

    My guess for toxic X is that it comes with X counters on it and it gives X poison counters per damage. Works doubly with proliferate.

    I never say this and I am only ever going so say it once... but that $999 randomized pack is so much cash grab! And they are not even playable cards, and most are just plain bad cards!

    Secret lair is good. Might get one if possible. Def worth it because.. playable cards.

    Tons of cards again! Good times... the more cards and reprints the better I would say.

    Infinite with Bottle Gnomes, right? I'm iffy with DFCs and UB so this is unlikely, and white is very tight as it is.

    4 mana draw that can whiff is bad, but being in a 1 mana value 2/1 makes it simply a bonus. This is lower tier 1 drop for white, so still fine for smaller cubes. But can be ignored as well given the multitude of frequent updates we get now.

    Some reactions

    As an owner of an artifact cube this set has me hyped...

    Full art lands... all lands should be like this!!

    Urza - kinda predicted an “Origins” transform mechanic but Meld makes much sense. Especially with that tiny rules text.

    He is really powerful though. I like doing +4, dump your hand, then ultimate next turn.

    He also curves nicely into the Mightstone and Wakstone, and then meld on the 5th turn.

    Mishra’s Foundry is a bit meh... is this a rare? I think it can pass off as an uncommon. Let’s see.. perhaps we will get a lot of Assembly worker tribal.

    That Kayla is one value engine.

    Recruitment officer is one great card for Cube.

    Schematic showcase is nice, but we got borderless schematics in SL, so I was hoping for that.


    Was expecting more new artifacts for an artifact set but I guess they reserved it for the main preview season...
