    Nice to see WOTC continuing to give the playerbase what they want.

    This is a good balance between flexibility and cost, as paying more than 3 for flexibility is often not worth it.


    That depends, I think this is in a great place for what it does, it is effectively a charm that has a counter for all modes, Commands usually are hugely flexible cards and can cost more than 4..but having several modes that you can pick 2 of is powerful.

    I generally like anything that says "Or" in EDH, Flexibility is really underrated.

    Ok besides the ravnica part 3 set and the next core set

    Maybe another battlebond/conspiracy esque set I would love for them to do one actually focused for commander or the next master set

    I think new phyrexia might be potential the next visit I can expect them to attempt to help Karn end them for good base on what he said on dominaria (as a matter of fact the good old professor is predicting that’s are next storyline after bolas story is done for now)


    I expect people will be disappointed with the Ravnica 3rd set announcement. I don't think it's going to be what anyone expects.

    Also, my guess is Theros for the next setting, given all the heavy devotion setup they've done so far in GRN and Dominaria, which is likely to continue in Allegiance. It'd be weird to NOT have a return to Theros with this much buildup.



    Devotion + Hybrid cards would be a great combo.

    Insane Speculation for Third Ravnica Block : Everything on the "Ravnica" side of the Conflict will be Hybrid.

    Chaotic isn't an issue for Bolas at all.


    Yes but would THEY be for the deal? Serving Bolas would mean they would have to care about who they target..and that isn't how Rakdos rolls, they just sort of paint the streets red with blood.

    Nicol Bolas "Okay Rakdos Guildmages..attack..and don't kill the Golgari people."

    Rakdos Guildmage 1 to Rakdos Guildmage 2 : "Hey..hey what if we kill everyone..including the Golgari and eat their hearts"

    Rakdos Guildmage 2 : "SURE!"

    Simic and Azorious, with Orzhov being "We have no idea where their true loyalties lie because they are Rules Lawyers and will loophole everything." Gruul and Rakdos are too Chaotic to really serve Lord Nicolas.

    describing yourself to yourself


    Define describing, but I think "God I am fat" quite often.

    Eh I would rate Torgaar higher than either of those two others, Torgaar can be cause for BB

  • posted a message on What hurts the format more? Fast Mana vs. Tutors
    Fast Mana without a doubt, it puts the other 3 players into reactive mode dealing with the player who is on turn 3/4/5 mana when everyone else is on turn 2 mana.

    As one of those Commander players, I have to ask what you mean by this. You're right, we do see it as a worse Commander, and I'm having a hard time equating a sub-optimal cardpool and bad mana-fixing with better gameplay. What makes Brawl gameplay better for you? Shorter play time? Less variance of deck power levels? I'm not trolling - I am legitimately interested to know what people prefer about Brawl, as I've been one of those guys who asked "Why not Commander?" when a person or two expressed interest in Brawl.


    I think that Commander has the eternal format problem (because it is one) the number of cards that are just too got not too use has slowly risen over time so trying to play a new card generally just feels bad, like I could play Slimefoot EDH, but it would generally just feel worse compared to Meren/Gitrog. Commander just has..lots of "required" cards like Sol Ring, Signets and the like that feel like they just restrict Deck Building.


    I think you're seeing what you want to see here as opposed to considering how vast EDH truly is as a creative and dynamic format. Consider Donald's Drederic deck over in the multiplayer decklists: No sol ring, extreme concessions to color restrictions, and yet he built simic dredge... well, because. That's the beauty of EDH that brawl lacks; the sheer immensity of the cardpool means anything is possible, whereas brawl can only ever be singleton standard. Sure, a few players are just going to jam what's good, but most players are trying to sculpt some weird expression of self through their card choices and playstyle, and being able to access more resources only adds finer detail to that expression.


    And his deck would be better with those staples.

    So Guild stories are cool and all But when does the actual story start?


    About 6 months after it should have.
    I was interested in the story as the only worthwhile thing to come out of Ravnica, having a major showdown. But with how they're dragging it out with filler and smearing it across various inconsistent media, I've lost interest.


    Now now, you haven't seen anything from the Simic guild, you should get something cool for your Island Kraken guy to use.

    To Little, To Late.

    Ugh on Dovin...seems like their throwing a character under the bus because he didnt bow down and worship at the Gatewatch's Feet...we should be able to have characters disagree with the Gatewatch without being made into Villains. Not everyone agreeded with or liked everything Urza did and they weren't all turned into Villains.


    Antagonist and villain are not the same. We have no reason to think that Baan is working directly for Bolas. He is working with Tezz. Which is a reasonable explanation for Ral as well. We have no evidence that either of them have actually met with Bolas or have any idea what the things they’ve been working on are actually for. As far as we have evidence of they’ve only interacted with Tezz.


    Here is how Dovin is in the mix.

    Tezzeret : *poofs into Dovin's office* "Hey you know those Gatewatch guys who said no to helping provide security for you, then showed up to ruin your fair and cause a revolution? You want to annoy the crap out of them?"

    Dovin : "Sweet lets go."

    Wait, how does this combo? Part the Waterveil doesn't target, what is Radiate targeting here? You can't use Time Warp either because that would have the net effect of everyone taking infinite turns.


    I am not sure if it works this way, buuut the awaken part of the spell does target so with Radiate and the Awakened spell it might copy once for each land you control?

    Before the Planeswalker legendary changes, and the introduction of Legendary spells I would have rated this card pretty low. However after Dominaria I have to say I like this card.

    Most of the Legendary Sorceries are quite powerful effects, and in Commander you almost always have access to a legendary and you can nab a walker with it as well.
