    Rosewater confirms the Test cards are Convention Boosters only, with something else to replace them in the retail versions.


    Dumb move on their part.

    Those test cards were the only thing I even had the remotest interest in in these packs.

    The video refused to run after the first pack. But I saw Chatter of the Squirrel pulled. Are these old cards that WotC purchased in bulk and inserted into packs with the "test cards" or are they entirely new printings?


    Nevermind, these are reprints. Similar to Chronicles. I can see the new mark in the photos that I didn't spot on the video.

    Wow WotC.... I'm just speechless.

    Are they the HarperPrism book promo cards? Arena and Sewers of Estark had 1994 copyrights on them.


    There are a number of English sets with the 1994 copyright. The Dark, Legends and Fallen Empires. However, like the book promos, these all have an expansion symbol barring any misprint.

    This why it's important to scan the actual card(s) in question. The collective knowledge of the forum can quickly identify legitimate cards and their set off of the scan.

    How does it hold up against Oko and Nissa? These two cards are just dominating my local meta in Standard. Those cards are definitely straining the meta with most anti-Oko decks mainboarding Planeswalker hate just to deal with them.

    I've got the box over the weekend and to my surprise the box set was not sealed wrapped. I'm not a major collector but I wonder what others thought about it. Or this is normal.


    Interesting. I just got mine yesterday but haven't opened it yet. Too busy. It does sound "loose" in the box but the shipping bix doesn't look crushed like in that YouTube video.

    What does it say on the packaging where the cards were printed? I'm guessing they used the (U.S.) Texas printers to keep the costs lower. I kind of hoped they used the Japanese printers but... eh....

  • posted a message on Worst Commander
    So someone asked me what I thought was the worst commander to play. Worst, as in the commander is so bad as to be virtually unplayable, not worst as in the most degenerate. So all I could think of at that moment was a vanilla creature like Isamaru, Hound of Konda, but nope, can't be vanilla or French.

    So.... what is the worst commander(s) you can think of?

    After browsing the list of eligible commanders, the worst I can find isis Haakon, Stromgald Scourge since I cant think of any way to get it from the command zone to the graveyard.

    A card is identified as a spell only when it is on the stack. Therefore, while it is on the stack, your opponent can't use anything like Counterspell on Niv-Mizzet, Parun

    Once the spell leaves the stack it is no longer a spell. If it makes it to the battlefield then it is a creature and is subject to cards like Murder. Note that cards like Murder and Unsummon are usually not considered counters but removal. You counter a spell while it is on the stack but you remove a permanent from the battlefield.

    Contrast this with a card like Humongulus which can be countered while it is on the stack but cannot be the target of Murder once it is on the battlefield as a creature.

    Neither ability prevents your opponent from targeting the card in the graveyard or in your hand.

    what we want is silver bordered , non - legal , VINTAGE pre-constructed decks
    .


    But... but... what about the reserv....

    Yeah, I got nothing.

    Silver border cards are fairly steadfast in the realm of unset territory. We're more likely to see Blacker Lotus or something g really goofy like White Lotus but non-legal versions of Vintage legal cards? Might as well print gold borders again.

    There is no place to store custom cards in text only versions.


    Versions of what? Variations of existing cards?

    I don't actually know what your goal is. Are you trying to make a Wiki for existing cards and their text or some sort of Wiki to keep track of custom cards? What is it are you actually trying to accomplish?

    Seems like a glitch, as all cards from Magic 2019 rotated out with the release of Throne of Eldraine this past Friday.


    Most, not all, of the M19 cards rotated out. Two cards from the gift pack, Angelic Guardian and Immortal Phoenix remain legal as well as the other 50 or so cards from Core 2019 remain legal.

    What did you think? How many wins did you get last week and this week?

    I really didn't have any fun playing the lead up last week. I managed only 5 wins before settling on a deck that was actually consistent under Arenas terrible hand algorithm. I'm not going to lie, I net decked for this one. I usually don't, but the pressure of only having 12 games to practice with is annoying. This particular matchup just reeks of WotC's attempt to squeeze you for more money. I know WotC is saying they want to see what kind of decks people come up with,but how is that a thing when the winning decks are being netdecked anyways?

    In this event, I only managed 3 wins with both losses happening after the 3rd win. My first loss was against a superfriends deck that made use of Fae of Wishes. WotC, this is what the blue meta is going to get? At least Ring of Ma'rûf was fair since it exiles itself. Even the Judgement Wish cards did the same thing, but this blue only wishes with Teferi, Time Raveler? That's bollocks.

    My second was against, of all things, a Rakdos deck that somehow managed to have a Murderous Rider or a Bonecrusher Giant for every creature I put down. My hand was perfect. I was on curve, I cast everything on time. But both decks always just answered every card I put down. Worse, I wasn't able to draw my own answers. Just creatures.

    I did not enjoy this particular event in any way shape or form. I know people dislike the events with pre-constructed decks but I would just as soon play with pre-constructed decks next time than this type of thing.

    Way back in the day when card sleeves were just starting to get used, you could force your opponent to play without sleeves. People would enter Type I (now called Vintage) tournaments and win games/matches by playing Soldier of Fortune because their opponents didn't want to keep shuffling their Power 9 decks.

    MaRo ruled around the time of Unglued (because of people stripping for Hurloon Wrangler) that the law supersedes the rules of Magic. Kinda wondering how many people got their asses kicked as a form of conceding to a troll shuffle deck. I think the minimum for that these days is a five-year ban from tournaments.


    I remember a couple of times, in the very early days of Magic, players would pick someone up and toss them out on their backside in front of the store. I don't know if it was a local thing or whether players were more "take matters into their own hands" sort of thing back then.

    Mox emerald? hehehe do you know that we are in casual format forum? I have acces to dual lands as much, but no more, and I want to play low price deck for fun.

    Thank you for the tip about ScryFall and green creatures, these fits in my deck


    Casual means different things to different to people. It can even mean different things to the same people at different times and even within different groups.
