    Oh yeah, again the lie of people being fired/hired for sjw. People point me a real name of someone fired by wotc because he didn't want to be "emasculated"
    Yeah guess what, you can't
    So much for a guy throwing around words like "empirically".
    Empirically, Jace is still the male nerd so smart that can solve every problems with a few tricks
    Empirically, Gideon is still the buff male that held the awesome weapon and was also so heroic to sacrifice himself and save everyone
    Don't get mad just because Liliana and Chandra got their time to shine too, or because right know it seems that Rowan will have a bigger role than Will

    OMG this is so amazing. i literally said "IF an employee at WOTC" ect ect, but you see what you want to see and acuse me of lying! hahahaha congradulations on losing the argument. the whole point is that said employee CANT 'come out of the closet' so to speak as a fan of classic Conan. the point is this happens on a frequent basis at other companies and if you aren't aware of that then who knows what rock you're living under hahahahaha

    and ps. jace and gideon suck as characters, so thanks again for making my point for me Wink

    its amazing to see people on here miss the point so amazingly. a few pages ago somebody said "oh look the alt right are coming out", because if you dont like stupid flamboyant character designs year after year from a company that employees sanctimonious hypocritical twitter police types, you MUST be 'alt-right', whatever the hell that even means,...

    the biggest problem with all of this isnt the depiction of handsome male characters with chests exposed, its the fact that the company only hires and affiliates itself with the most bigoted types of sjws. the problem is if an employee at WOTC said to his co-workers "i love the classic conan stuff, that traditional fantasy stuff" it would be seen as 'problematic' and he'd probably be fired. and so for years the company has been on a crusade to completely emasculate itself. to remove even the slightest depiction of heroic traditional masculinity, and replace it with often obnoxious depictions of women fullfilling those roles, almost as if women are allowed to be masculine now and men arent. i mean its hard to even explain it because it just sounds so stupid, but that is whats happening.

    the 'special snowflakes' maro described dont get triggered by a single artwork with a sexy man on it, nor do they 'need therapy' over it, the artwork represents a massive trend throughout ALL popculture to emasculate it and allow women exclusivity to being the 'badass's'.
    and you really have to ask WHY? are they chasing an audience they dont have? do they think traditional fantasy art was 'problematic'? why was it problematic? why was it ever a 'problem' that there were was media targeted more exclusively at men? did old conan stories invoke 'toxic masculinity' in its readers? (the answer is empirically NO)

    im just asking questions here really. what i think is happening is, from WOTCs perspective, if men and women can just be merged into a single demographic of doughy soy-based NPCs, then the company just has to market its product to that one diluted audience and give them a stupid 'ready-for-cosplay' character every year. and to hell with fantasy art that complexly reflects and explores the light and the dark, the benevolent and the evil, the hope and despair inherent to the human soul

    hahahah what the hell does that mean?

    honestly i dont know what youre inferring.

    what difference does it make if youre a 'gun-toting gay conservative canadian'?... im talking about the game of MTG and the pathetic creative vision of those who have inherited it.

    hahahahahaha "hate speech". yeah right...

    fact is every single character wizards creates panders to modern millennial try hard 'woke' culture. its extremely tired and boring, and every time they do it they're neglecting an opportunity to build genuine lore for the worlds they are making.

    its not just wizards tho, so many fantasy themed games do this and its completely played out and pathetic. it is essentially the death of real art and narrative being a part of nerd culture.

  • posted a message on war of the spark seems like a high power set
    its an absurdly powerful set. dominaria or khans are not on the same level at all. Scars of Mirrodin and its neighbouring blocks are what this is most like (which is probably the highest power level in magic history)

    this set has a very very high number of rules breaking effects, mostly the static abilities on the PWs. fifth dawn is known as the set that most experimented with this kinda stuff. khans was more powerful in just aggressively costed spells. this set will open up many new combo decks/synergies in standard and modern and will probably lead to multiple bannings (ie. bolas's citadel, new teferi ect)

    i didnt at all say they were 'cutting snappy for this'. i said its one the same level of power. it has a completely different purpose and its not reactive like snapcaster, but double bolting(3x damage twice or 6x to one target), doubling pump spells, ect ect. = same level of power. you will understand once this set comes into modern.

    this is not a 'maybe' over this impacting modern / legacy. this is snapcaster mage power level. in many scenarios far more brutal, its actually stupid.

    the fact it triggers on the attack lets you bolt (or double bolt) a problematic blocker.

    those red decks that just maximize 4x of every bolt variant will just be ridiculous now

    this set is scars of mirrodin/orig. innistrad in power level

    these are not fake. very nice design on most of them too, they feel as interesting and creative as the commander products of the past.
    i think wizards would be very unhappy these leaked...

    the art is worse than usual, which is REALLY saying something, as 99% of mtg art these days resembles a bucket of CGI vomit. WOTC cutting costs as usual.

    this is one of the best sets in a long time, mechanically speaking. there are so many pushed cards and interesting build around me ideas trickling through this set, and i wonder if this really marks the beginning of a gradual power creep over the coming years. the design team should be proud of what they've accomplished here.

    the artwork however, is some of the most pathetic and uninspired ive ever seen. every new set gets uglier and uglier with the cheesiest CGI photo realistic depictions of characters. these artworks are supposed to depict populations of a FANTASY universe, yet they are so shamelessly trying to reflect some kind of younger modern day generation. it really assumes total narcissism of todays youth, that they will not be able to identify with MTG unless they see idealized versions of themselves in almost every artwork.

    hahaha woooow this card sucks so bad.
    what is domri's backstory anyway? he doesnt look very healthy, kinda malnourished. why does he have the power to control giant pigs? does he also have the power to cook and eat said giant pigs?? just saying he looks like he would benefit from getting more protein.
    poor little guy hope he pulls through:frown:

    the tattoos was a generalization (obviously), i was talking about the other walkers and the general state of magics characters and aesthetic. its awful. its like every character is designed primarily for cosplay potential.

    and i said "young douchebag LOOKING types", my point is they look like young douchebags, i dont care what his age is in the storyline.
    the anger is not misplaced, magic looks like trash now because they are desperately trying to market to a younger audience rather than building real fantasy settings.
    i mean just think about it man, not a single planeswalker in MTG actually looks like Gandalf. do you think this is ok? it is NOT ok.

    why do wizards insist on making all the walkers these young douchebag looking types? like, every single walker is just some young moron with tribal tattoos. its actually vomit inducing, worse character designs ever. remember when mtg actually had real wizards in it? yeah me neither.
