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.

Mar 26, 2021I 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
The hyperminimalist bits are perfectly fine by me, I liked them even on Harmonize.
Mar 10, 2021These 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).Posted in: The Rumor Mill
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.
Feb 26, 2021I 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
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.

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

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)

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.
Jan 12, 2021Semoreh posted a message on [KHM] Mothership 1/12— Starnheim Unleashed and Dual StrikeI have no idea what some of you are reproaching this art. It's just super dynamic.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 8, 2021I 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.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
(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.

Slightly different is one thing. This is something else, and I don't want to see it. I miss some of the more painterly stuff they used to do. Even some of the more abstract. With this, I miss not seeing it.Quote from wallycaine »I do deeply appreciate that the same forum that reverberates with constant complaints about "samey" art, and how it's all "CGI" and "why don't they do weird stuff like they used to" is also the fastest to spring to complaining about the art anytime they do something slightly different. It's fun.
Word of Command, Celestial Prism, Treasure Mage, and Stasis have all been criticized for looking amateurish or incomprehensible, but at least they feel like a cohesive piece of art. This looks like one skilled artist was vandalized by a much less skilled artist.

Easily couldve been any other walker whose storyline HASNT been concluded.
But sex sells.
I'm confused. How does the mere presence of a female character equate to "sex sells"?
Especially with how unsexualized this art is when compared to past incarnations of her. Clearly this card has nothing to do with sex selling. That's not even to mention the fact that her story has not reached its conclusion due to the dangling plot thread that is the Raven Man.

The ONLY thing Wizards ever made clear wasn't part of the crossover was it's own story canon, which admittely would be terrible if they tried to canonise other IP's into their own. But they've never, not in the history of the games publication, ever said that the mechanical focus can't be crossed over into other games, other IP's or other media.
I mean one thing is liking tha change, one thing is bull*****ting that magic was about crossovers all along

Assuming you're happy to tap out each turn, cast nothing else, and are emotionally ready to eat a removal spell.

Johannes Voss can draw faces. He's painted crowd shots without any goofiness in them for years. Last year he painted Gallia of the Endless Dance (source for the other goofy face) and people loved how insane the background characters were for the art.
On an actual card, they're barely noticeable. Dude's just having fun. Look him up on Gatherer, I'm certain he's drawn some card art you really love. Including lands and the M21 Shrine Cycle.

Personally I find Voss's style in these arts to be refreshing, and a relief. If we can't have the Foglios in 21st Century FIRE design, then Voss will have to do.
