    Oh modern mechanics will happen

    but For a fact maro said a lot of character who don't have cards are finally happening here so with that said I will tell you this set is likely gonna end the wait for Gix and ashnod to get a card

    Ashnod is literally mishra's sidekick during the war

    And as for Gix he attacked Mishra while he was taking dragon engines also he was trying to kill both of them for the two power stones during the war

    Thanks for sharing the link. I was wondering when we will get information about Liesas return. It isn't totally clear but I seems to be a demonic pact or Angels behaving similar to demons in Innistrad and just reborn after being slayed. I can hope to get a new Gisela in the future than... Well it took Liesa a long time to reform but who knows.


    it depends on gisela and Bruna because I need to remind that they got turned into one eldrazi it depends if the two can resurrect human again and didn't cause those 2 to cease to exist due to the corruption

    well now we get the shock of are lives

    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/returning-legends-innistrad-midnight-hunt-2021-09-17

    But Ormendahl succumbed to the Eldrazi's corruption, and Jerren was killed along with the rest of the Council during the Battle of Thraben.


    So jerren died during eldritch moon and Ormendahl suffered the same fate as gisela and bruna when they turned into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares

    for those playing at home why does jerren and ormendahl have cards when ones dead and the other is eldrazified

    With some good URL guesswork, I've figured out that the Returning Legends of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt link is https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/returning-legends-innistrad-midnight-hunt-2021-09-17.

    In particular, Wizards says that Liesa has reformed from mana and her own essence "Perhaps due to her demonic dealings, or perhaps because of the shared nature of angels and demons". The reforming process took centuries, though. Wizards leaving it completely ambiguous and open about whether Bruna and Gisela can return in a similar fashion yet again.

    Ludevic's bio also leaves it ambiguous whether his "final creation" involves stitching himself into it and Ludevic becoming a skaab that way...but Olag's earlier bio does not - Ludevic does not become Olag. Shame; the Showcase art version of their shared card was really leaning into the direction of Ludevic becoming Olag.

    I love this part of Rem Karolus's bio, though: "Rem does not wish for a glorious end in battle. Let's be clear: Rem very much enjoys living. After all, the longer he lives, the more fights he gets to have. He's just looking for a little challenge." I think a lot of blood knights in fiction think like Rem.


    yes but the real interesting part is this...

    But Ormendahl succumbed to the Eldrazi's corruption, and Jerren was killed along with the rest of the Council during the Battle of Thraben.


    jerren is dead and it was during eldritch moon he died. and ormendahl fell for Emrakul's influence and lost is own (he got Eldrazified)

    so maro i need a big big big exclamation why we got 2 past cards? becausee this is ormendahl before he got corrupted obviously

    My opinion is that it's time to massively expand the RC. Give seats to Josh, Jimmy, DJ, the Prof, etc. and let a larger group of folks weigh in and make the call together. Maybe even include a few folks from Wizards, like Gavin Verhey.


    Ignoring the fact that plenty of people already think the Wizards' banlists are a mess, even with their data, this comment has already happened. They *did* expand things and have somewhere around 11 other people on their Commander Advisory Group. With Josh from the Command Zone already being one of them. And they expanded it once after creating it initially. And that group helped achieve the Flash ban and likely weighed in on these two changes as well.

    Also, 25% of the current RC (the 4 people you mentioned) does work for Wizards and another is the main Policy "guy" for whenever the IPG is updated. Maybe not as many as you would like, but they already have a Wizards employee on their roster. I don't think adding more people changes their philosophy.


    yes but josh in particularly mentioned he was 0% for the golos ban (then again it could be because he had a “good stuff” deck

    The *new* legendary characters in Midnight Hunt:
    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/new-legends-innistrad-midnight-hunt-2021-09-16

    I have to say defiantly feels like a lot of characters are getting set up stuff for more stories;

    -Adeline and her vampire brother which might be a story note in crimson vow as Adeline and Chandra are said to have upcoming story moments

    -Olag mysterious visitor (also nice on having the Frankistein monster "good")

    -Wilhelt is indeed Gisa new caller

    -Lynde has a cool nod to the Unluckiest


    after reading Olag

    I...SMELL...PHYREXIAN!

    (Somewhat kidding it co7ld be just geralf or whoever lives on innistrad the praetor is the tin foil theory)

    and really lynde saids the unluckiest walker is the most irritating person she ever met

    now I really want to learn who the walker is now.

    I’ve been thinking some more golos might be the greatest ban in the history of commander

    Because for once the RC banned a card that’s a money maker card for the company’s and now they lost it. In other words this will truely give a indication to WOTC to not make cards 5-color commanders as bonkers as golos

    this is why I fully believe in kamigawa neon dynasty if we get a 5-color spirit tribal legend it won’t be a “good stuff” commander.

    Glorious day. Reminds me of the time prophet of kruphix was banned. Go back to whatever hell you came from golos!


    Well I can tell you people are salty and cry babies about golos and claiming he’s not broken and Mitch commander quarters is one of them.

    They can claim all you want no matter what you claim golos is broken commander no matter how you build it

    important note

    (Avacyn had originally killed her—tune in to the web fiction to find out how and why she's back)


    Sorry if you guess'd escape from the helvault (or jail break of some sort) your wrong she did infact resurrect somehow.

    Eloise: WIZARDS YOU BLEW IT! now everyone is gonna Harass you guys for a sultai clue matters legend right when it was cracked with Lonis, Cryptozoologist this add's B in the equation.

    Black curse: oh that are first forever staple for Lynde, Cheerful Tormenter (new cards) you wouldn't mind cursing yourself with this one like are C17 curse cycle

    Turtle: I wonder if it will be as popular as the gitrog monster meme wise.

    Blue curse: this is possible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx-FszJZgak (3:50) (they have no creatures and they mill their whole deck)

    Is it only me or Moorland Rescuer is completely broken? This is one-side mass reanimator at just six mana. Ok, it must die, but its not that big hoop to do. This card is totally crazy in grave based deck.


    Total power X or less. If your 6-drop dying to a wrath brings back 2 bears, that isn’t the most impressive of feats

    How much power on the battlefield though can come from 0 power in the graveyard?


    tell us something that’s not in the form of Arcades, the Strategist esque decks

    Only guess is that you will have cards with the held mana but there’s barely any cards that can kill all 3 opponent with one spell (something that deals 7 damage to all opponents)


    But opponents draw too, and could draw even response (like Force of Will/Negation). With Worldfire, if resolve, its just so much easier to win and setup a game ending strategy. suspend with Jhoira of the Ghitu. Cast while you got antyhing trapped with any Oblivion Ring style cards. Float even just one more mana to cast a 1 red mana general.

    This unban is dementially nonsense. Of all possible banned cards that could lead to even a slightly more interesting gameplay, the unbanned the most unfun and game ending of them all.


    don't give players with world fire any ideas
