    Are the non test cards reprints? They come with their original borders and set symbol but they have the little planeswalker symbol at the bottom.

    I believe they meant that the draft stipulation would be to build a deck similar to a brawl deck since a 100 card commander deck would be pretty challenging to put together.

    I knd of hope they replace the usual sol ring reprint with arcane signets. Unless its a mono color deck, then the sol ring would make sense

    I think this is going to end up like frontier.

    I was playing the first announced modern, was it well received initially or did everyone thinks it wasn't going to work?

    I thought bestow was a little over costed, but it was the first go 'round for it, this time they know what it is and how it plays so they should be able to better cost it. Really looking forward to devotion and constellation. I think heroic has been superseded by prowess.

    Which gods you think make it in? I doubt they'll include all 15. If the story is about Elspeth and the underworld, you have to figure Heliod, Phenax and Erebos, possibly Athreos. The only way they 15 make it in is if they make some rare.

    Fiore is already based on Rome. Maybe not the time of gladiators and such but i doubt they'll make two planes based on the same real world location just different eras.

    How will they do a Godzilla set when the average creature should start around 10/10 at minimum?


    The monsters probably start small and get bigger with this “build your own monster” mechanic.


    Or they start out incapable of attacking or blocking (and likely being very difficult to remove from play) until certain conditions exist, or certain cards are played on them. So similar to Theros gods, but possibly without the animation condition being on the card itself?

    Think of a massive potential-threat sitting on the board waiting for the right time to become an actual threat. Everyone sees it on the horizon coming, knows it's extremely difficult if not impossible to remove from play, and your opponents are hoping to defeat you before it arrives, or be able to slow it down (see: remove the things that currently allow it to attack/block) long enough to win.

    This would even fit with the kaiju theme. How much of a kaiju film is watching the monster(s) wreck other things far away, or be on the move, vs the time spent with the monster(s) actually in the thick, fighting and destroying what's right around the audience's perspective?

    Hell. Perhaps they even start off only able to affect other behemoths? Maybe they get to attack one another directly normally to accomplish some effect, but not players or planeswalkers, until cards allow them to attack the latter. This would allow them to be quite cheap with massive bodies, since behemoths are starting off only interacting with one another.

    The looming distant threat slowly revealing what it's capable of, then finally having something set it off in a dangerous way, feels like something that's never been done (another thing MaRo said, this is a mechanic "they've never done before"), and also feels very kaiju to me.


    I'm getting an Augment vibe. Has there ever been an ability from an un-set make it to a standard set?

    I'm looking forward to Theros, can't wait to see what they came up withfor a greek underworld. What's going to be white aligned here?

    Zendikar is amazing and seeing the work that Nissa and possibly Nahiri have been doing to restore it would be cool. You think there will be a few straggling eldrazi? I wouldn't seeing a few, like 5-6.

    Confirmed- Eldraine is swords and sorcery Arthurian and Grimm fairy tales themed.

    I see a rather murderous Goldilocks in there. Also... Kasmina is/was a knight?


    The known Planeswalker is Rowan (and presumably Will) Kenrith, from Battlebond.

    Compare this piece of Eldraine art:

    To her existing card art (pay particular attention to her sword):


    That art has to be from Magali Villeneuve. I wish she would do more.


    Judging by the signature and website link at the bottom, I doubt it is.


    The new art, not the battlebond one
