It's Growth Spiral that charges for 3 life and loses instant speed in favor of having a late game threat attached to it. If you look at it like a ramp/draw sorcery and not as a creature it seems really solid.Quote from The Lord of Tresserhorn »Anyway, while this looks quite powerful, it has no evasion, and 6/6 seems pretty small for an actual Titan.
On the other hand, given the right mana and some helping spells that deck yourself, this can easily come out turn 4.

They banned Servant using Iona as their rationale. And it looks like lazy work unbanning Servant once they kick Iona. What's silly is that a 9 mana white card is apparently a greater threat to the game than 5 mana blue legends, 2 mana artifacts, 4 mana blue sorceries, 7 mana colorless planeswalkers... for ****'s sake, this card's biggest issues were legal and that's why they banned it in the first place.
This really feels like the rules committee justifying their own existence with a pointless action.
(the bans are pointless too. If you had games ruined by these two cards so often that you think they need bans you are bad at this game. Cater to your base and not people too stubborn to adapt.)

Because it’s a Mantis Rider without haste and the cards you draw come from 3 of the most bloated tribes in the game. If it just said “draw a card” it’d be so much better.Quote from EasyLover »I can not conprehend why ya'll think this Kalia is bad. It's a Mantis Rider without haste, but instead draws 1 - 2 cards immediately, which means more gas !

Yup. Better than Ancient Tomb, Strip Mine, Temple of the False God, High Market, Inventor’s Fair, etc... or not;)Quote from Pouncing Kavu »Wow. So this is probably the best land for colorless EDH ever, right?
It’s a possible land to make the 38-40 card land roster, but a land that ETBs tapped and doesn’t do anything until really late in the game is going to have a hard time making the cut. In my Eldrazi EDH deck I can’t think of a single card I’d cut for this - even just one of the 7 Wastes.

You don’t already feel completely overloaded with new cards?! With War of the Spark, Modern Horizons, M2020, and C19 all coming out at basically the same time it feels like giving us a whole week is slow.Quote from cyberium_neo »Such a rapid preview, wouldn’t people get overloaded by cards? I personally prefer a slower preview so I could digest.
Jun 7, 2019If you thought deck building advice was bad here, you should join random Facebook MTG groups. I post an Ugin Oathbreaker deck and it takes minutes for “AdD tRoN lAnDs.” to flood in. Okay, what do I cut? The answer is always “lands that are really useful at most stages of the game.” That’s cool and all but....”Posted in: Commander (EDH)
May 31, 2019Galspanic posted a message on Mothership Spoiler 5/31 - Full Card Image Gallery!Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from MysticLeviathan »Super disappointed in the showing of Slivers and Snow.
This set felt super safe, and not in a good way at all. I hope when we make it to Kaldheim, there will be some interesting snow cards. Maybe we can get Slivers again in a Core set a year or two from now, who knows. A lot of this set felt not efficient enough for Modern, despite the powerful cards, hence the Commander Masters moniker, and it definitely holds true. Will there be cards that see play in Modern? Absolutely, and quite a few at that. At the same time, a few knobs turned on a bunch of cards and they’d see play in Modern too.
I feel a bit let down. Maybe my hopes were unrealistic. I feel like if all the archetypes got the kind of love and playability the RG lands cards did, the set would be better. As it is, I consider this set to be a bit of a letdown.
The only way you could really be let down by this set is if your expectations were unrealistic. It will change every format it's legal in to some degree. There's solid cards at all rarities, creative and interesting cards to explore, and it brings back a ton of mechanics with new twists. It may not make every archetype in Modern better, but if it did we'd be back at where we started. Any set that doesn't immediately break a format will be seen as safe, right? This thing is fine.

Given that there is already a deck that runs Miscreant and Sprite that just got hit with bans pretty hard, I know I will try this thing out. In my Mono-U I have 5 open spots so this seems like an easy drop in to try out.
May 20, 2019Galspanic posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 5/20: Flusterstorm (BaB promo) and Morophon the BoundlessWhen talking about Morophon being a chase card in this set, are we ignoring that cards like this (high cmc creatures that rely heavily on the deck to be worth anything and compete with proven staples that aren't expensive) are never worth much or that there are tons of other cards that will see play in multiple formats in the set? This is a mildly popular Commander card for a little while and for that it's a $3.50-$5 card... hardly chase.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

May 28, 2019About 4 years later than I thought it would sink (seeing the site bought by an Alabama based online gaming site? I mean....), but I'm still sad to see it die off.Posted in: Articles
As long as Reddit is unusable and Facebook is Facebook I'll probably hover around whatever is next.
Nov 16, 2007Honestly, you have given me fun projects to work on. That's worth a lot to me. When I look you up on Google I find all sorts of stories about the stuff you have dealt with and as many stories about how people in your neck of the woods (and elsewhere) think you are great. You look me up and you find nothing except fprmer students on myspace complaining about what an ahole I am.... So, enjoy it man.Posted in: PolarBearGod Blog
