    While true I can't say I find unboxing videos to be all that fun. At the very least The Professor makes it somewhat interesting with the booster box game and can give you some indication if buying a box can be worth it rather than the usual "watch me open 6 cases. OMGosh I opened 40 mythics and you can too" kind of thing.


    Tbh unboxing channels often have more subscribers than gameplay channels. It struck me when I noticed Alpha Investments had way more subscribers than Mtggoldfish.

    I like Arin, he's a very enthusiastic guy and I watch GameGrumps from time to time. I subscribed to his channel for a few weeks but when I understood he wouldn't play at all, just crack thousands of dollars worth of card every week, I unsuscribed. But I understand why he got a few spoilers, he's litterally promoting the whale's way of life x)

    I may frame that art.

    No, it's turn 2 drop this. Then turn 3 drop a free 1 mana spell (not 3 mana), then turn 4 drop a free 2 mana spell.

    Unless you flash something cmc2 in response to the trigger, but that won't happen often with GG (Wildborn Preserver I guess).

    Also, this previewer is much more my style than some selfie-slinging would-be influencer.


    Ffs these people are doing previews for free, you're really overblowing it. She advertised her small channel with a picture of herself, so what, not a big deal, grow up.

    I have no idea what some of you are reproaching this art. It's just super dynamic.

    There's also Spellshift if you like that kind of effect.


    I wasn't aware this card existed, thanks Smile

    Quote from Tormented »
    It's funny - this card feels like a commander card but every time I thought of a card to use with it it seemed like a bad muldrotha on the back side and a bad seed born Muse on the front. I think that the home for this card is some card value deck in standard but unless we get an arcum's astrolabe type of cheap value I don't think crucible of worlds makes the cut in standard


    Well it's a "bad muldrotha" for 3 instead of 6 and a "bad seedborn muse" for 3 instead of 5. Would you say Lightning Bolt is a bad Lava Axe? ^^

    They apparently wanted us to be able to use the cards that Tibalt exiles even after he's gone.

    The thing is adding "as long as it remains exiled you may play this card and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast that spell" after every single one of his Loyalty Ability was probably too long. Each loyalty ability exile cards in some way so you'd need to say it every time.

    A way to shortcut this could be adding "As long as they remain exiled, you may play cards exiled with Tibalt and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast that spell" as a passive, but I think (I may be wrong) that it would mean killing Tibalt in response to a loyalty ability would have the cards exiled be lost to the void.

    In order to track the exiled cards at all time, everywhere, an emblem seems pretty fitting since you can't mess with it. being created "As Tibalt enters the battlefield" also means that it's not an answerable trigger either, so it's perfect.
    That's my understanding at least.

    Reminder that Toralf's ability is noncombat damage itself, and it can re-trigger itself in multiple instances of damage. Combo with Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, amp every instance by 2 and suddenly a measly Lightning Bolt becomes a chain reaction of death.


    Oh wow, that's hilarious. Imagine your opponent has like ten 1/1s out and you lightning bolt one of them...


    I think it hardly makes the card good but I'll admit this interaction is pretty funny ^^

    I'll admit at first I simply couldn't read the card because I'm used to shortcut Snow with "snow" in my head.

    Once I got that you should replace it with the more complete description "a snow mana" it became clear and I have no problem anymore with the card except that it can definitely be confusing at first (but it eventually makes sense).

    Yeah the flavor is there, but it is weak. Maybe less weak than the blue god's bird, but still.
    At first I thought they could use "Spell trample" to simplify the wording but you wouldn't be able to redirect to any other target. Today is "slightly confusing wording day" I guess ^^

    Agreed that the mill part of Tibalt's Trickery feels pretty pointless and just makes the card more complicated. However it's a funny card, and even if it's not that powerfull I'm glad it exists x)
    Divine Gambit was pretty close to being a good removal spell, but it feels way too risky;

    I personnally find it great that so far Mythics are not "chase mythics" like Uro, Omnath, etc. It was the original goal of mythics to be splashy cards that are not auto-ins everywhere. I can see some of the original Alara spirit here.

    (for now. spoiler season just started after all. But all mythic Gods so far fit this definition as well)

    I like this dragon though, it's a beautiful creature.

    Also, I'm surprised that Niko turned out WU instead of UR. That planeswalker's Mothership article screamed UR to me, especially Niko's disregard for destiny and willingness to pilot their own path, regardless of what others think about it.


    I'm pretty sure it was explicitely written somewhere on the PW mothership's article that they were Azorius.

    I'm liking a lot of cards so far, and I also love love LOVE that it seems to confirm the general powerlevel decrease that started with ZNR is here for a while.

    Is it me or Masked Vandal is secretly one of the best cards spoiled today? Damn. A Reclamation Sage for 1 less, that exiles instead of destroy, given you can exile a creature from your grave? And it's a changeling? I'll be playing this guy for sure.
