    They just need to fess up and admit the mechanic is broken and wrong.
    They didn't help the fact by printing the first ten companions with Hybrid mana either and most having great abilities.
    Hopefully on Monday:
    Teferi or Fires or Yorion or Agent (or some combination)are banned from standard (Teferi will rotate soon but no need to keep him around till then)
    Winota is banned in Historic because if your not playing it you mostly lose

    Companion: No easy fix unfortunately because the "restrictions" they put on the first 10 really don't restrict when they slot in perfectly to already established decks or easy to build decks.
    I like the mechanic itself even with the uninteraction with the free card, its just they are almost all too powerful. So even if they ban 3-4 of the good ones, everyone will shift to finding a way to break the 4-10 ones until they eat up the entire meta.
    A free card is just too much to pass up most of the time.
    Should have came out really weak and seen if people could make them fringe work, not come out with the first batch that kinda makes you feel like a fool for not playing a free card.

    Maybe: Companion the mechanic is banned in eternal formats and Yorion and Lurrus are banned in standard.


    Uh I need to remind the teferi train may not end yet because core 2021 is focused on him.

    Sounds like it might be more comparable to Conspiracy, then?
    There’ll definitely be a few juicy reprints to give them a known quantity of value to sell the set,
    but we may get some really powerful new cards, too!

    I’m curious how many of the Mythics will be new commanders vs desirable reprints.
    I would guess maybe 10 Mythic commanders and the other 5 are high level reprints like Mana Drain, Imperial Seal, etc.
    They’re already getting several of these out of the way with Ultimate Masters,
    possibly to make more room for new Mythics in CL?


    I'm will say this

    Josh from command zone/game knight's actually knows some of the cards since they actually let him draft a prototype of the set

    He said His favorite draft sets was conspiracy and battlebond this is that but even better is what he said

    Darksteel Colossus just ain't it anymore, but the other two are real cards at least.


    That's only because blightsteel colossus exist since it basically adds infect (which should have been the one on this card by the way)

    In the right edh deck, it would be great

    Heck just attach a phyresis or tainted strike it then you turn it to a budget blightsteel colossus

    30 dollars for 4 bolts? No, thanks.


    Especially since you can get the cheapest bolts for 1.52 (mystery booster)

    And people already have alpha era bolts

    The monocoulored or the multicoloured cycle? K'rrik would be a solid mono-black legendary


    Yea that's problem B for horror the oldie phyrexians vast major are black there's the occasion blue or red in the older phyrexians


    Yeah that is the problem, also I bet most of the OG phyrexians are getting cards in commander legendes, but if M21 is anything like M19 I do expect to see some OG phyrexians, also Jumpstart, Phyrexians are a mythic theme and there are 37 new cards comming with that product so the stars are kind alligning, Jumpstarts also shares over 100 cards with Core 2021
    But they could potentially do a double coloured phyrexian cycle if they really wanted too


    Yea that's true

    By the way K'rrick has a card your right he’s mono black printed last year's commander product in the rakdos deck


    Tsabo Tavoc is already black and red
    Gix black and blue
    We could arguably say Belbe could be black green

    But it's kinda hard to do a cycle of OG phyrexians even multi coloured, at least without introducing some "new" old phyrexians in the set, or minor characters


    Indeed

    We see of old phyrexians get involved of core 2021 or not (not as a cycle) lorewise

    Maybe the legend cycle are phyexians

    As for the tribe I would say horror due to the phyrexians but there's lots of types the phyrexians are

  • posted a message on Double Masters 2XM New reprint product
    I will point out that the Mox Opal seems odd. These lists were emailed out as early as February but the Mox was banned in Modern (it’s primary home, to my knowledge) in January.

    I’m wondering if we should take that as a sign of an impending un-ban (as with JTMS in eternal masters) but that would imply that wizards started planning to unban the card one month after they banned it... which would be all kinds of weird.

    My best guess was that the list was taken from early planning from the set and that Mox has since been replaced with something else. Will be kind of funky otherwise.


    They printed Jace, the Mind Sculptor in eternal masters while it was banned in modern

    That Arcbound Ravager art is the first time in a while I went "ooph". The other pieces of art are good in their own ways. Kind of wish Walking Ballista had a Zoids reference (with the raptor mech throwing rockets out everywhere) instead of normal mech reference, but what can you do. I will say that Darksteel Colossus is the only art that makes sense for the card.

    This has value, but I am going to skip this once again, like I will most likely always skip these.


    To be honest zoids is the reason I'm interested in this one I was watching a few episodes as a kid

    But I would get these by singles online/lgs just like I did with the kaldescope killers since these will go Lower than 40 dollars

    This really depends on sought after and scarce these arts will be

    Because it's kidof a ripoff since the most recent lightning bolts of mystery booster is 1.52

    Heres what's next
