  • posted a message on Zendikar rising the two commander decks speculations
    Well we know that they will only include 3 new cards for each of them. So most likely the 3 Legendary Commanders. They can include cards from the new Zendikar set.

    I don't know how I feel about allies. That class shouldn't be relevant for Zendikar rising? They allied with each other mainly because of the Eldrazi. I don't know why the vampires, goblins and some of the humans should still be allied with the other races. I could see the more healing focused races working together, tho. Like Kor, Elves, Merfolks and some Humans. So maybe some new allies make still sense.

    I would like to have at least one new landfall commander. I am not sure how the color distribution could work, here. Commander Legends will have two precons, too. I can't imagine 4 times 5 color decks. so I think it will end more like Bant vs Rakdos or some other color shenanigan that provide some kind of color balance.

    1. Well if Nahiri finds out that Nissa was the one letting them free in the first place... She helped to destroy them but well damage is done now. I don't know how Nahiri would react to that.

    2. We have the vampires (kind of Ulamogs creation) that aren't really natives to Zendikar. We can imaging some kind of tension with the Kor and Humans, here. And well the Eldrazi cult like Ayli.

    3. Maybe there isn't a big baddy this time. Just a planes that needs to heal and is creating new forms of life which we can witness.

    4. We have Jace there, too. Maybe he try to settle things between Sorin and Nahiri or convince Nissa to join the Gatewatch again. Maybe he will support Nissa with some kind of problem in the plane that we don't know about yet.

    I am quite happy to see the topper art and flavor text of Avacyn. At least the people of Innistrad seems to remember her for what she really was.
    Don't really need the card. But I won't complain if somehow the card ends in my angel collection.

  • posted a message on [JMP] Angels theme— PleasantKenobi previews
    Hm still no new angel. The land isn't what I was hoping for. What is that? A field of feathers? I was hoping for some kind of white leyline thing because Angels are white mana construct or some Serra realm pictures. Linvala is greate I guess. Well this will save me some money at least.

    This theme is just filled with random angels. The baneslayer one could be a Lyra and at least do something for the tribe. But well, there are multiple 'themes' in this product that didn't got the attention they give for example unicorns. I think the dragon theme is better for what it is that this.

  • posted a message on [M21] Full set spoiler
    Zendikar is next which is known for angels. I'd be surprised if commander legends didn't have some as well.


    Quote from Ryperior74
    Zendikar will have some

    But I can tell you it will be a repeat tribe for zendikar with the elementals and the next omnath gaining another color


    Zendikar's Angels got almost wiped out if I remember correctly. I think Linvala survived, though. Well I have no other choice to wait for Q4. Yeah my hope lays on the commander legend product.

    I am honestly disappointed. The power level and the color balance are okay overall. But waiting for 1 year to get any new Angel creatures and than just getting a reprint is a major let down for me. I was hoping for at least 2 uncommons. Instead we got some angel token generators. Sigh...

  • posted a message on [M21] Mothership 6/15— Shrine tribal
    Kind of amazing how they gave us new shrines, created a new "shrine lord" and yet somehow found a way to make the white shrine not fit with the others and not work with the shrine lord ability. I tend to think people bend themselves into contortions to prove that "wotc hates white" or whatever, but this just seems like a slap in the face.


    This.

    I don't know why the white and red one need to have a totally different pattern. I don't think they could end up being stronger as raw draw power or ramping. The white one doesn't even scales well.

    Griffin Aerie is half of a Angelic Accord so nice a guess.
    Speaker to the Heavens is nice and will take a place in my Heliod deck.

    I didn't know there was a angel themed booster-package. Strange... I know that you need two booster to create a deck but aren't angels a little to expensive Manawise? The cheaper ones are often in a higher rarity. I didn't expect them to fill many rare+ cards in there. You could combine them with a cheap themed booster I guess but isn't that super random. I thought there were more balanced. And the product is filled with reprints, too. So we could end with no new angels at all.

    It's just speculation, but angels are popular enough that no angel pack seems like a big missed opportunity. It would be foolish of them not to.


    I did some digging and found out that the Amazon Product descriptions says:


    Each booster pack contains 20 cards and a theme. Do you get cats and dragons against elves and unicorns? Pirates and angels against dogs and dinosaurs? Open your boosters and find it out.


    I don't know where they get the information but angels are mentioned here. I can't remember if they where mentioned in the presentation.
    The set contains about 500 reprints and 37 new cards. Each booster contains 1 rare, and one of three boosters contains an extra rare slot. There aren't many low cost angels and there are some really cheap tribe decks like goblins, cats, Elves, vampires confirmed.
    Segovian Angel
    Angelic Page
    Angel of Vitality

    Are the only low cost angels I can think of. And Angel of Vitality is a little special because of the life gain theme but less specific than Emancipation Angel. This new card could be included as 2 drop technically. There are some angel themed cards that aren't exactly angels like Angelic Renewal or Answered Prayers. For an angel tribal feeling they need to add something new I guess. Non of the common or uncommon have any benefits for/from other angels. The only card I can think of would be something like: Radiant, Archangel, Seraph of the Masses. There are some tribal options for the rare slot like: Bishop of Wings, Bruna, the Fading Light (unlikely because of meld), Herald of War, Lyra Dawnbringer, Parhelion II More specific: Resplendent Angel (Life gain theme), Sigil of the Empty Throne(Enchantment theme), Serra the Benevolent

    Angels are mentioned in this page, too: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Jumpstart
    So I guess there are confirmed or at least likely. They aren't in the mythic rare list so there should exist more variation. I'm curious.

    I see a 2 Mana 4/4 flying Angel for a sacrifice/already doomed creature/planeswalker. Or a emergency removal. Get rid of that ugin for example. That's nice. In feather decks you could upgrade your tokens/creatures for some angels (or just play divine visitation).

    I hope we get some new angel creatures in this set but I fear that the dogs and humans will take to much place.

    Well, we can at least expect to get enough angels for an angel-themed Jumpstart pack.
