Sidenote: I count three votes for Ink-Eyes . . myself, Syndrome Lawliet, and Oh By the Way . . .
Anyhow, my vote goes to Chandra's Phoenix this time.

May 6, 2013I can't even . . . . I'm just . . . . My poor wallet. I was already intrigued about the new Chandra (Yeah, I'm a fan of her. Jace can go die in a fire, pun intended). But now we get more slivers?! While I'm leaning toward flavor disappointment with the departure of good ol' meathooks everywhere and parasitic abilities, I think I can get psat it enough to give the new ones a shot. I've been waiting since Eventide's Goats for something like this.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Now, I want to examine what's known so far for them, in terms of power and abilities.
Sentinel Sliver. 1W for a vigilance sliver-bear? I'd call that a signifigant upgrade over Synchronus Sliver, the only one of the hive to give vigilance until now.
Steelform Sliver. 2W for a butt-bear. I would call it a decent merging of Plated Sliver and Watcher Sliver at a respectable mana cost, seeing as it boosts itself once it hits the board. . . . I'm just going to ignore Armor Sliver.
Battle Sliver. 4R for a 3/3 that grants +2/+0. Essentially a one-sided Bonesplitter Sliver with a bigger body and one more mana? Not bad, when you consider that the 5-drop spot for Slivers will probably be finisher-style cards, and this one seems like a contender for that spot.
Blur Sliver. 2R for a haste-bear? Not that terrible, even on its own. +1 mana over Heart Sliver for a bigger body, and one-sided haste? Looking better already.
Striking Sliver. R for a 1/1 with first strike? Considering it's competition is just Talon Sliver, and Spitting Sliver, this one is definitely a major upgrade in power for the hive. I approve!
Groundshaker Sliver. A hefty 6G for a 5/5 trampler. Doesn't seem overly strong outside of limited, mostly due to 7-CC (unless they bring back Gemhide Sliver). However, it's pretty close to on-spec, considering the previous trample-granting meathooks were Battering Sliver and Horned Sliver.
. . . . Keep them coming. There's no real disappointments other than flavor so far(in my opinion).
Oct 6, 2012Hey, sorry, I'm here. Been busy packing and stuff, and didn't have the energy to update yesterday. This weekend is going to be busy as well, with the release, and (Canadian) thanksgiving weekend, but I'll try to keep up ^^Posted in: World of Pokémon v.3

Not entirely correct. I think the //gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?name=+[Selkie">"]Selkies would like to have a word with you.
On the topic of Kiora:
Would I love to see her as a planeswalker? Yes.
Will she be part of the Simic? From what I have read about her, I'm not expecting it.
Is Ravnica a good time for her to show up? Absolutely, if WotC decides they want to give her a card. Same for Ral Zarek.
Prime Speaker Zegana:
The art is incredible. I don't care what she does, I'm chasing a foil of her.

Aug 28, 2013Kelzam posted a message on You Make the Card 4 (YMTC4) - Name Top 4 Votes...and Voting Shenanigans!?!?Because people seem surprised when votes don't appear as they do in our polls: I really hope people don't think that MTGS is such a big entity on the web that our Rumor Mill polls in any way reflect what the majority of players reading The Mothership actually vote for. I founded/created this place, and I don't even have an ego capable of believing that. There are many, many other online communities of people that don't post here, or people that don't read our forums but visit the official website.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

I hope it is all unplayable jank. Down to the very last card. Every single one from Theros to the Third Set. All entirely unplayable.
Then people like you would get to learn what "unplayable" truly means when you don't have Geist, Snapcaster, or Olivia to fall back on.
Aug 3, 2013So here's what I decided to do at my store. We try hard to be a 'white hat' store, so I wanted to give players several options to get hteir hands on it that don't involve massive payola.Posted in: Rumor Mill Archive
First, we're raffling two of them away. $1 a ticket, two different jars. One lucky entrant from each jar walks away with one.
Second, the opportunity to win one outright or win the ability to buy one at MSRP will be available through select tournaments throughout the month, including (but not limited to) FNM's.
Finally, the "market option" is a fun one that's gotten a lot of attention. We stuck a giant whiteboard on the wall, divided into four. In each quarter is a price, which started at $250. A note on the whiteboard explains that these preorder prices will drop by $5 each day until they are sold. This "games the gamer," playing in the tension between locking it in and paying less for it. It will be interesting to see at what price they go.:)

Apr 7, 2013Faust2391 posted a message on [New Info] You Make the Card 4 Week 5: Aura or Not? (Black Wins!)Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from ShakesZXYou can't really compare blue control to black control. They are 2 different monsters. Black would like to break the opponent where as blue would like to control the opponent.
Black: "Oh, you would like to play a Thragtusk? Sure, I'll kill it, then reanimate it and attack you back with it. Good play."
Black: "Oh, and you also have to [insert black effect here] as well... Good play."
Blue: "Oh, you would like to play a Thragtusk? No."
Whereas my choice for enchantment:
Red: "Oh, you wanna play a Thragtusk? Cool. Skullcrack."
Red: "Now I'll steal it, give it haste, and play Thundermaw Hellkite."
You forgot the best one!
Both [in tandem]: thragtuskthragtuskthragtusk!
