    Why do I love this card? Why does every part of me want to cast this for UUU and laugh my head off? This is the most timmy draw spell I've ever seen and I never knew I needed it.


    This is Timmier than Enter the Infinite?

    Three Sets for the Old Blocks under old style,
    Seven sets the eternal formats, their cards stand-alone,
    Nine sets duel decks with room to grow,
    One set for the for the God-Pharoh to return home,
    To break apart the gatewatch, and set-up their rise.
    One set to highlight them all, One set to find them,
    One set to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of tarkir where Elder Dragons die.


    Are you saying that Tarkir will be important to the Gatewatch in the future?

    Boom. Good against Ramitupyour too.


    That's what Samut's -2 is.

    I wonder if that was intentional. Rolleyes

    Pretty card. Interesting ability that seems totally Commander to me.
    Unless they've not spoiled a buttload of lifegain vampy cards, not Standard worthwhile. At 5 CMC play Crested Sunmare instead and win straight up with with lifegain when it sticks. Legendary makes it awkward too.

    You can't even respond to Glorybringer by destroying it when it enters the battlefield :/ so it gets you for sure. Feels like Vamps are a tease this set. Maybe setting up for next set?


    Eldrazi jumped quite a few tiers in strength between BFZ and OGW, so I guess anything is possible.

    What if Planes are just theme parks and planeswalking is how an unreliable narrator goes from ToonTown to RavnicaTown?


    If that's the case, AmonkhetTown and New PhyrexiaTown are pretty messed up theme parks.

    Ah yes, Samut can enrage the dinos and/or give them double stomp.

    I guess Samut was a closet dino support card the whole time.

    I like her mutch more then Licia for Vampire Lifegain shenanigans.


    You mean because she actually does something other than turn sideways for a bajillion power?

    Also with each return to a world I think the planes will be fleshed out more. Ravnica has tons of stuff added on since the first block (oceans and merfolk, the spots where the guildpact are null, etc). Both Innistrad and Mirrodin had stuff "transformed" on it more then added but both did get a good refresher.


    Innistrad still has those far-away continents we don't know about with those exotic lycanthropes, and I don't know too much about Mirrodin, but was there anything there still un-explored?

    I honestly doubt it'll take another 5 years to see Ravnica again.


    With so many plot threads tied to Ravnica (Ral being an agent of Bolas, Teysa vs Obzedat, Vraska's hostile take-over of the Golgari and Jace not being there for so long), I think it should be after Dominaria.

    To be honest, I think even just creating a map of some of the planes (like they're doing now with Ixalan) would be enough to let us know what lands out there beyond wherever the story is taking place.

    Has there ever been a Vryn set? If Jace does remember his days on Vryn, then that would be the first place he'd go.


    Nope. So far, Vryn is the only Origins plane we've never visited "properly" in a dedicated set.

    Given the huge difference between what we've seen of Kaladesh in Origins and what we've seen of it in the block proper, I have to wonder what we don't know about Vryn.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if Azor was on Ixalan, and the anti-planeswalking enchantment was his doing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is completely false either.

    Maybe Illusion!Liliana was wrong. Maybe Bolas was the best thing that happened to him, because Bolas's mind-wipe seems to be paving the way for monumental character growth (which I hope they follow through with).

    Also, if he somehow remembers his Vryn days, you have to account for the fact that he promised his parents that he'd return to them. That alone might be enough for him to go back there, but of course the larger plot would be centered around the mage-rings.

    That map is useless to me.
