    Perfect for the pesky creatures in limited that annoy the fudge out of you, i.e. flyers, unblockable, mill triggers, death touch, indestructible, etc... Basically a great way for blue to deal w/ stalemate boards.

    Question is, will it bring in a premium for a common, like 50 cents or more?

    Is there an artifact or equipment on the flip-side?

    Pretty strong in limited. Especially if that bird gets equipped.

    Really digging the boast keyword... even on commons it feels pretty powerful. Even the white boast common here feels stronger than the uncommon w/ boast. The white one get's pseudo-vigilance with a +1/+1 counter that keeps growing.

    The treasure making dwarf is cool, as red normally doesn't play w/ red creatures in the graveyard, so should be a great way to make treasure tokens.

    Just about the worst looking art I have seen in a while... it's looks like it was done by a grade-school student w/ Sharpie markers and an ink pen.

  • posted a message on [KLD] Foretell keyword interactions & a cure for the confusion I feel for it
    Trying to see what older cards interact w/ a face-down, not yet in the game creatures. First I was thinking Riftsweeper, but that's face-up.

    To hone in my research, what zone would a card w/ foretell be in when it's placed face down? Or is it just in limbo such as cards that have been phased out.

    Is it considered exiled? And when should it be countered: when it's place faced down or when the rest of it's cost is played? I think the core question is when the foretell cost is initially played, how can the owner of the card or the opponent interact with it?

    So, a common is now (for the most part) better than a popular rare (Vraska's Contempt), as the 2 life gain doesn't make this any less than the rare version. Talk about the power creep, lol...

  • posted a message on Kaldheim & the years of the Vikings!
    I am always entertained when themes in media appear. In the past volcano-based movies have appeared twice in one year, while another year had insect-based cartoons hit the theaters ("A Bugs Life" and "Antz"). I don't know if it's a coincidence or somewhat planned (art imitating life and/or vise versa?)

    Even though (technically) Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was released Nov. 2020, it is really a 2021 title; with players just now digging into the game & critics writing and/or publishing articles (just a read a review in Game Spot).

    Then we have this new set that looks jaw-dropping fun, Kaldheim being released in the cold month of February (wondering if that was planned for the flavor of it...?).

    And (hopefully) a game that I am one of the designers for has a 2021 release, which is aptly titled Twilight of the Gods (it has been out for 5 years now, but a new expansion for this expandable card game [you get all of the cards in the set when you buy it, no booster packs; just a different style of distribution of the product]. Now Twilight of the Gods (TotG for short), is not just about Norse mythology, but incorporates many Gods & mythical beasts from our own worlds religions, civilizations & mythologies. And no, this isn't meant to be a plug for my game; we haven't even been told when the Kickstarter is happening (we, the design team) only got an email from our publisher telling us that production of their various games is starting up again after a very sluggish 2020 & we're now part of the pipeline of their release calendared).

    BTW (this part is sort of a plug...): you can look us up, Twilight of the Gods, on Amazon and the boardgame website, boardgamegeek.com

    But back to my topic, anyone else agree this is the year of the Vikings? Am I missing any other Viking inspired or related media coming out this year?

    Is appears to be the first time blue gets to permanently destroy/exile an artifact. Not bounce/tuck/steal/counter but actually get rid of it. Not sure how I feel about that.


    I wouldn't necessarily say it break the color wheel. I think there are some very creative ways to give out of color abilities and synergies while still keeping the flavor. I remember when Unyaro Bee Sting came out in Mirage I thought it's too bad green doesn't have decent creature removal, just a sorcery that cost 4 & cards like this... then green got the fight mechanic and the ability for a creature to deal damage equal to it's power to another.

    Here we have an exile effect, such as it is found in white, getting a blue spin on it. Reminds me of Afterlife, but trade instant speed for sorcery speed, but also able to hit artifacts.

    This might be one of my new favorite blue commons; will probably go in ALL of my Commander decks that run blue.

    Ummm... chase common, lol? Quite a power house at common for blue. Hell yeah I'll trade you down your massive beast or combo artifact piece for a measly 1/1 flyer.

    Maybe not right away, but I expect foils in this to hit the $1+ range.

    How come the Kaldheim visual spoiler hasn't been updated since Dec. 30th of last year (get a kick out of saying "last year"...)? It's as if the "leaked" cards aren't considered 100%.. but I really see it as lazy mods. This website used to have much more active mods. Feels like the ghost of what it used to be... On the bright side, at least it's more active than the other pseudo site, MTG Nexus... that's place has les life than Bodi Ghost Town.

    Just want to know what's up with the slow roll in the spoilers. If someone cracked some packs early, post them all at once & stop with the cutesy passive-aggressive one at a time business.
