    I am not sure how some of these missed the list.


    Akroma, Angel of Wrath (original printing, as Vigilance was not a keyword yet).Okay this one isn't as wordy as others, but it does require the reader to know what all of those things mean within the context of the game.

    What do you think the secret foil is going to be? C’mon now. We all know what it SHOULD be.


    But also, this is dumb. Like “I’d make fun of you if you bought this dumb”...I’m ordering this on the 3rd...aren’t I...just checked, I am. YOU FINALLY GOT ME WotC!

    [Whenever ~ enters the battlefield for the first time each game, create the emblem, “At the beginning of your end step, you get a doom counter. You lose the game if you have over 4 Doom counters. Whenever a spell or permanent you control reduces an opponent’s life total to 0, remove this emblem and your doom counters.”]

    Transformative medium needs to be at least a rare.
    The white cards look neat, though I’m unsure if practice for greatness should be uncommon or rare, I’d need to see the play testing data. The reason I’m leaning towards uncommon
    due to the counter being added post combat.

    It says you must play a nonland card to use your mana for drink related things. Does this include countering drinks with blue?

    I find it interesting that no one has brought up cards to deal with the chance of you actually drawing your beaters.

    Scroll Rack and Brainstorm seem like great adds (if you have the budget for the former).

    Blood Sun should be run anywhere there are bounce lands.
    I find it odd that this card gets almost no use when there are some many people running bounce lands especially in red.

  • posted a message on Fists of Flame (Modern Horizons) has incorrect color identity
    I am going to bump this, as it has been two weeks without a response or a fix.


    Please let me know if I should be going through a different avenue to get things fixed with the deck builder functionality on this site.


    On a side note:
    In the database 'Essence Symbiote' is listed as Essence Symbiont

    Hear me out:
    Horde of notions commander deck.
    Sneak in Maelstrom wanderer.
    Flash in Niambi, bouncing MW.
    Discard MW to draw two cards and then use HoN to recast it from the graveyard.
    Profit.
    Did you know there are 27 legal legendary elementals at this point?
    Just saying.

  • posted a message on Fists of Flame (Modern Horizons) has incorrect color identity
    Attempting to add Fists of Flame to my monored commander deck yields no results. It shows up when switching the deck format to casual, but then tells me I need to remove the card due to its color identity.

    EDIT: It looks like the color identity is currently green instead of Red.

    @user_938036


    I was under that assumption due to the wording of the errata on Infinite Reflection. Thank you for clarifying.
    It will be easier to relay to my playgroup.

    Thank you!

    With Essence of the Wild or Infinite Reflection if I mutate the “Prime” creature do all other creatures I control also get a mutate trigger or do they just “update” without a trigger as part of the continuous action.

    Witch’s oven is OP?

    People passed that **** over as chaff at first.


    Stop being net-deckers. Look at every single card in standard and look at how new cards react to it. If you are net-decking people are already side boarding against you and you are already behind the curve. It is acceptable to start with a net decking base but by the time the list gets to you it has already been seen by your would be intelligent opponents and may not be built for your meta (server/LGS).


    I’m only seeing one companion out there that should be cause for alarm if you aren’t running removal.
    Mutate will only ever be up to decent because removal exists.


    Also if you are so worried about that companion, the is the anti-companion/commander card in the same set. Drannith Magistrate.


    This isn’t like the days of Urza’s Saga were you went in blind to a draft. We know the cards spoiled before they hit standard.
    I know what to expect by analyzing all the cards but know what colors to lean towards by analyzing the commons.


    You can’t tell me Gates and mono red burn aren’t viable. Know the meta, save your lunch money and only when you have triple checked your research, then get what you need ( which sounds like you need to get removal).


    This is tough love.
