    Ahhhhh... so many times you get to the exact number for the PW ultimate and you sit and ponder... do it now or wait a turn when it has more loyalty. Well, this can solve that dilemma, or just get back your 2 best beaters after a Wrath is played.

    I know it's the flavor of Boros, but I really dislike that the tokens ETB attacking. I have noticed a majority of the time they get blocked by bigger dudes or get chumped. The only plus side to this is that it gets around Propaganda-like affects. Now if Divine Visitation is in play, that's another story... and I had to beat him to death with my own shoe...

    Wow, interesting design here, playing w/ different casting costs. Too bad Tiny Leaders has fallen by the wayside, this can be fun w/ costs like: B, 1, BB, 1B, 2, BBB, 2B, 1BB, and 3. That right there is nine +1/+1 counters.

    The part of this card that is killing me is the damn high cost. I'd play this in a casual deck or in Commander, but that nasty high cost just tells me it's a limited bomb (what, you target my dude? I sac him, ditch a land and get a 5/5 flyer out of it... wait, what do you mean we're 10 turns in???)

    Oh, Master Planeswalker Hill, thank you for sharing with us your favorite Commander themed/colored deck: mono-green!!! Anyone one else on the same page as I am about now wanting to square off against Kyle in a match or two of Commander?

    Now, curious: has anyone played against Kyle in a game of Commander?

    If so, what was his general? And if no one has, let's take a guess at who his Commander is... I am betting on Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma or Omnath, Locus of Mana.

    NOTE: wasn't too sure if this was best in Commander or Entertainment... but chose here because of its topic

    Interesting question. Fresh starts are typically welcomed, as content creators, UI developers, members and staff can take what was learned over the span of the old site's life and apply that learned info on a new platform.

    A lot of small questions will come up regarding features from here and when and how will they be implemented. I hope to see a trade system (cross compatible w/ Puca Trade files or the like would vastly speed up profile creation). Also hope a Holiday Gift Exchange comes back (if both sites host, will just have to split up my 4 - 6 cards I make).

    Noticed this post got some attention right away, yet my post from last week still has zero responses about the new site... even if it isn't up or the name is still unknown, that is useful info. I hoping for a known time line, that's all. Really.

  • posted a message on Core 2020 Previews: 1 or 2 weeks???
    I distinctly remember in a post (early on) that Previews will be 1 week only; grunts and complaints soon followed.

    Now we are 97 cards in, only 2 days left in this week for previews. Starting to feel like previews will be 2 weeks, not 1. It's a good thing (IMO), but what gives with the miscommunication... or did I not get the memo?

  • posted a message on What are your thoughts on black is gonna learn how to remove enchantment
    I am guessin' that to keep it on flavor, it would require sacrificing a permanent or spending life as additional costs. Personally, I do not like it, as it would give too much to black, which (mostly) dips into most color pie features. Such as:
    Card draw
    Direct Damage
    Board wipe removal
    Spot Removal
    Life gain
    Flyers (weenies + big boys)
    Creature stealing (Ritual of the Machine and New Blood among others)
    Artifact destruction (Gate to Phyrexia and some obscure 1-shot from the past, can't remember the name)
    Discard
    Land destruction
    Recursion
    Tutoring
    Indestructible
    Weenie creatures
    Massive bodies beasts
    Mana acceleration
    And now a black source Proliferate w/ Yawgmoth
    Black even has a couple counter spells and a fog spell

    How many other colors can take that claim?

    So I really hope black doesn't have access to enchantment removal by itself. At the most, it will be a white or green activation cost on a black card.

    Quote from The Fluff »
    two bodies for three mana, and a decent ability if you can pay 4. Seems good.


    Because 7 mana for two 1/1's is acceptable, lol- no thanks. If it was something like a 1/1 for 3, then sac it for 1/1 flyers, then exile it for another 1/1 flyer, then I would find it useful. But this feels like something out of a Portal set.

    To go from MH1 to Core 2020 feels like an emotional roller coaster, with highs and lows. I get it that they both are of two different experience levels and the Modern set's overall strength is miles above, but this just feels like all of R&D's creative juices were wrung out and this is just lazy design. Even in limited this could be part of the last 5 cards picked.

  • posted a message on When will the new site be up and running and how to create a new profile
    Pardon me if I have missed anything from all of the threads/info given on the new site (I am tired and need more sleep, hence the laziness - sorry, quite blunt)... But... is the new site ready? Can I/we get a link? Also (IF it is up and running), where @ said site do we go to create a new profile...

    I'm just a little lost here since the news of "A New and Exciting Beginning" was published here, I read that this site was sold, right? So (w/o having to go back and reread the article), will this site still be up and moving w/ old and/or new mods? Did we (pretty much) just split the party?

    I believe my confusion is justified by my naive observations and crossed-wires...

    Thanks for any clarification.

    Absolutely love the artwork for the first two (same artist obviously)... not hyper realistic or too cartoony... just reminds of American action cartoon animation, like from GI Joe or Jem.

  • posted a message on where to go for rumors after this site closes
    For those of us who have racked up thousands of answers and have the little note on our handle (so to speak) that shows how long we have been a member (I take pride that I have been part of this community since 2007 and have way over 3,000 posts), my big question is this: Will the new site be a blank slate where we all (including mods) are starting from scratch as "new members: or can we have the recognition from this site carried over?
