    posted a message on Wizards statement on Crux of fate
    The statement in question actually doesn't state anything. She doesn't deny nor confirm, just says that "we all should live together despite our differences". Is that "the truth"?

    It sounds like a bit of a cop out since the persons she was accused of being too close are not for peaceful coexistence themselves.

    I think the thing that irks me is the photorealistic skin. Kudos to the artist in the sense that it looks like a photo, however I don't personally want photos as magic art.
    The hyperminimalist bits are perfectly fine by me, I liked them even on Harmonize.

    These dark blue borders are a sweet idea. If they were to do something like that, suddenly all my critics would vanish (the holostamp is really not distinctive enough imo).
    I'd be fine with them looking like magic cards, being mechanically unique, featuring other IPs, etc... as long as they're part of their own format, and the blue borders would be ideal to notify that.

    And just like Silver borders which are sometimes accepted in EDH, you could see some of these cards being played in "normal" EDH if the table is ok.

    That'd be a win-win, really. Heck, having Sauron fighting Ronald MacDonald alongside Rick and Spongebob Pants actually sounds like fun, what I DON'T want to see is a Collected Company dropping a Thalia and Bilbo Baggins into play in any of our traditional formats.

    I don't know if I'd go as far as to refuse playing againt someone who has these cards, since I'm already open about Silver bordered cards as long as the player asks for permission. But belittling the persons who've decided to do so by accusing them of gatekeeping is imo offensive and counterproductive.

    I believe it is WotC who put the playerbase in an impossible position by tooking a decision that would inevitably create a rift between some of us.

    There is undeniably a line somewhere between "expanding the playerbase" and "losing the game's soul in the process", for some this line will be crossed sooner than for others, but it needs to be respected.

    so most of you start praying they do it the way Godzilla


    I may convert to a religion just to do that more efficiently.

    I love almost everything that's been revealed. Only mana value will need to get used to.

    The Japanese artwork is incredible, but part of me thinks this would have fitted a Return to Kamigawa perfectly ^^

    Anyway, really excited.

    Quote from Dontrike »
    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)

    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.

    posted a message on KHM - Goldspan Dragon
    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.
