    I don't know why people keep saying any of the fetch lands are going to be in Modern Horizons....

    Mark Rosewater SPECIFICALLY SAID: "BASIC LANDS will be the ONLY reprints in Horizons."

    *currently modern legal reprints. There will be numerous reprints that aren't modern legal now but will be with MH.

    The timescale problem happens pretty much everywhere. Given the level of technology in the Silmarillion, Sauron should just get nuked from orbit in LoTR. It all boils down to creating a cohesive and recognisable world even across long timescales - if you take realistic technological development into account, you might as well be creating a different setting altogether. Similarly, if past Tarkir was radically different from present, it might as well not be called Tarkir at all.

    In all seriousness if they ever do it, they will probably use shandalarian sliver design so people can relate more to it.

    Don't think so, the almighty market research has shown they are unpopular. And it would be pretty hard to relate to a swarm intelligence anyway, so going with the original design could also serve to accent its inhumanity.

    Also, Cabal Therapist being the 80th card of the set directly contradict this theory. The new cards should be at least more than 80.


    That's not how card numbering works.


    That’s how card numbering worked for both conspiracy sets. New cards first then reprints.


    Yup exactly.And that's how worked also for Battlebond and Commander sets.

    So, I'm sorry Huaojozu, but yes, that's how card numbering works for all supplemental sets with new cards.

    But... that still doesn't mean that there won't be 50 reprints, right? It just means that there is over 80 new cards, and the set will have over 130 cards so 50 reprints fit in no problem. Or am I missing something?

    Just gonna leave this here, from blogatog:


    parc2 asked: is it possible for multiple creatures to hold a spark? such that we might see a saproling swarm as a planeswalker? (flavor wise, it'd probably be similar to the tetravus abilities with an ult)....if not, how about as squirrels in an un set?

    It is theoretically possible.

    Planeswalking Sliver hive? It would fit as a new "character" while meeting a popular request and being resonant enough to stand without any further introduction.
    Of course, there is still the distinct possibility that Maro just misunderstood the question.


    Even if MaRo was right, that answer means exactly what it means : that is just theoretically possible. Not that will be in the set or we'll see it soon or see it at all only because is possible. You are overreading this.

    That's exactly why I am posting it here, as another possibility that fits the bill, nothing more.

    I don't remember Flusterstorm being Modern legal, looks like I missed something.


    You didn't. This set features half reprints from not modern legal cards bringing them into modern and the other half will be new cards.


    That’s not quite true. My understanding is 50 of the cards will be reprints new to Modern with the rest of the cards being wholly new to Modern cards. At the same time, I’m sure there are a ton of these “Astral Drift” cards that are more or less the original with a slight variation to fit Modern templating or whatever, in this case being mostly better than the original, or like Cabal Therapist which is more of a callback than a variation per se and just mostly worse

    The "50 reprints" thing has been bounced around here but noone seems to have a direct source of that.

    Came across this interesting bit on Blogatog:

    Of course, it being theoretically possible doesn't mean it will happen, but it certainly opens up some interesting ideas. A planeswalking Sliver hive maybe?

    It really is amazing he can check one of the wikis before he answers.

    Really Maro have been working on MTG for this long and knowing so little about the storyline really goes to show how irrelevant story is lol.

    It is far outside his field of expertise and his time is severely limited when answering on Blogatog. I think it's pretty understandable.

    About the new character... maro is not a storyline expert. If they did a Card for Parcher or Tempé I m pretty sure (like 60% sure) he would think they are new characters.

    If anything I would take this as “the other is a character without a card or cards referring to it”

    That's probably the case, Maro keeps messing up story stuff on Blogatog all the time.

    That sounds weird, a new character for a set like this. Does it even have a story to introduce them?

    Maro confirmed that the fall set will be on a new plane, but he considers Vryn as "new" so it's not entirely out of question. Definitely no Theros, though.

    Storm scale has always been only for standard-legal products, not sure how this is news...

    Quote from EasyLover »
    As my favourite Planeswalker-character eva, i don't care bout this card. Gideon stands for all the best things in white: Couragous, selfless, protective, loving etc.
    & by the way (gotta admit) very handsome & a physical powahouse !
    I don't wanna believe the clues . . . not The Man himself . . . Gideon d:`(

    Heroes like him rarely grow old...

    She's a member of the gatewatch. You can't really pin garruk entirely on her, he's the one that came after her first and she was still rather under demonic influence at the time, as well as the chain veil.

    To be fair, she is in the gatewatch mostly because they are better minions than zombies.
