Nov 26, 2020Posted in: SpeculationQuote from Ryperior74 »Quote from OrzhovPlaneswalker »Possible creature types:
Humans. Dwarves. Elves. Spirits. Gods. Giants. Angels. Elk (but srsly). Trolls? Kraken? Serpents. Dragons. Squirrels. Bears. Werewolves? Elementals. Nightmares? Yeti. Whales. Fish. Faeries?
Barbarians. Shamans. Warriors. Berserkers? Archers. Scouts. Wizards. Clerics. Knights? Peasants. Nobles. Warlocks? Clerics. Druid? Rogues.
Amphin. (okay, only in my dreams)
I say change werewolf to wolf you know maro and the gang would not put werewolf's in not Innistrad besides we're going back there after D&D set and it's more regular wolve's than werewolf particularly fenrir
I think Lycanthrope using just the "Were" should be a separate creature typing. So we have a general Lycanthrope tribal. Werewolf would be Were Wolf.
Nov 13, 2020To sorta continue the party aspect from Zendikar rising, I can expect to see Spirits and Angels having additional typing.Posted in: Speculation
Spirit Warrior creature typing for Einherjar.
Valkyries will be Angels like Adarkar Valkyrie. They could probably have additional class type like Warrior.
I think Chroma could return as their version of Devotion. Each of the Gods in the set has a Chroma ability like one being a Light from Within.
Nov 2, 2020Nevinyrral's ability to make 2/2 Zombie tokens does open up to go an Aristocrat strategy since he replaces battlefield presence. Phyrexian Altar to sac creatures to pay for Nevinyrral's manacost.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Another strategy is to get him in the graveyard and bring back with sac costing revival like Champion of Stray Souls, Dread Return, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Living Death, and Living End.

They could be the first Partners that become 5 color.
Jun 15, 2020Singe posted a message on [M21] Kaervek, the Spiteful— The Magic Arcanum previewBesides the -1/-1 effect on all other creatures, he should have also had an anti-planeswalker ability too. Something like if a PW activates their ability, remove a loyalty counter from that PW. Thus like a loyalty counter tax effect.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Jun 13, 2020Warforged Canuck posted a message on Don’t know if this is the right place to put this.Could be another reason why wotc is going to eat ***** over this is the people they are pandering to do not buy the product. Those who cry for inclusion and diversity, in a lot of other industries are like an infection, welcomed in blindly then corroding out the core of what it was. Marvel comics has canceled countless 'woke' / sjw comics because all of their coalition hires want these diverse people but all they're doing is rainbow roading main characters because they can't write their own. They put out multiple failed projects and they only cost the company money and the fans haven't been buying. And their writings are so lazy that everything they pump out is literally just "I'm _____" and that is the entirety of their character. People saw this with other product lines and now seeing this come to magic they're going to abandon ship before their collections turn to trash.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

I agree but the reason I asked is that on the one hand he says that people shouldn't be so sensitive to pseudo insults, then says being labeled nazi is a joke and is "insulted" by it. That seems hypocritical to me.
Being directly and personally insulted and attacked is just that, an insult and is actual even illegal to do no matter the context.
Nobody has to be directly and personally insulted or should be.
However, if a card displays something and by proxy someone feels insulted by that, they are explicitly not directly and personally insulted, but by proxy claim to be insulted, which is an entirely different animal.
As by this "by proxy insulted" notion you can be insulted by absolutely everything, as long as you claim to be insulted and you can claim ownership over being a victim and weaponize that.
If nobody means any harm to you and you blame them for insulting you, thats just terrible wrong and does nothing good, its toxic and destructive to any good relationship.
At this point the artists of these labeled as "racist" cards are attacked personally by people, as by proxy, the artist is transformed into a racist too, no matter what their intention was in the art and its even less relevant if they actually are what they are blamed for ...
Theres a real danger in doing that and its fairly easy to realize how wrong it is to do that.
The Nazis did the very same to jews. They just blamed them to be "evil" and the entire nation followed that narrative and see what we got, a entire nation that suddenly by proxy hated on jews and caused one of the most evil acts in human history.
What we get with the current racism trope is very much like that and it gets more and more violent and crazy every day by now.
People that mean absolutely no harm are labeled and blamed for almost everything , and suddenly violence against them is "justified" , even encouraged, and the mob is destroying monuments, property and throwing rocks at people.
Its the same stupidity as Nazi Germany did against the jews, its labeling a enemy out of thin air and completely goes over the rails to lash out.
WotC here by proxy declares these cards and names of the cards as "racist" , by proxy labels the artists of these cards as racists and instigates an entire group of people to rally against a straw man, all in the name of fighting racism.
So the end result is, you just created more racism out of thin air, more hate against people and either side of the argument is going to radicalize over it and lesser minds will even resort to violence.
So yes, if someone is directly and personally attacked by any means, i am among the first to defend that person.
And freedom of speech means you are not restricted in what you say, as you do no harm in that, its strictly positive to be able to talk about whatever is in your mind, everyone that thinks different is free to do the same and oppose your arguments.
If someone suddenly claims the color red is a symbol of hate, and by that its banned, do we ban everything red from magic to pander to that claim ?
Its simply insane to go that way, as its an ever increasing list of banned words, banned things, banned hand-signs and at some point you are not allowed to do anything as it might somehow be offensive to somebody in the world.
The claim to fight against racism is by definition divisive and damaging on its own, especially if its too broad and cloudy defined.
It gets even worse looking way in the past and using todays standards to retroactive "fix" the past, as it doesnt fix anything, but attacks and damages the history and brands all the people as "Bad" that honor that history.
At some point people should just throw all that garbage away and get together, have fun and play the game.
A lot of people dont want to deal with any outside-world problems at all at a table of magic.
I dont care what color your skin has, i dont care what your sexual preferences are and i absolutely dont care what your politcal views are, we can all get together and play the game, and thats the point, thats whats so positive.
If you cant do that, you ostracize yourself and others, and thats just plain bad to do, as its the exact opposite of welcoming and inclusive.
Jun 10, 2020I certainly heavily disagree with the decision even if it came from noble intentions. Banning stuff you dislike, no matter how strongly you dislike it, isn't the answer. That's just going to drive a wedge between the sides and distract from the real issue. Honestly, what I think might really help is to actually give racism its platform and let it openly debate its heart out. If no one steps up to debate for the racist perspective, someone should play devil's advocate and really give it its time in the spotlight. So, exactly how well is it going to hold up against the harsh glare of facts?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
I personally feel that all this tearing down statues and moral purity is just an attempt to stir the pot or if successful, the chance to claim false victory. The triumph of gay marriage didn't come from banning things. It came from people realizing that "the gays" weren't some evil other that existed somewhere else. Gay people were their friends and family. Gay people were their idols. It wasn't so long ago that I was the first LGBT person quite a few people had ever knowingly met and been friends with. Now, it is a little more challenging with visible physical characteristics since you can't come out as black or whatever but being white, I've actually experienced racist treatment from older black people who I often even ended up becoming friends with.
