    Not a massive fan of them, especially due to the rate in which they're coming at. But most of all, it's really ******* expensive for a couple of cards if you live in Europe.

    Cool art on a lot of them though. Especially the snow lands. To bad you're ****ed if you want more than one of each hehe.

    The art on that Aether Vial is sick! I prefer this Cryptic art too, looks cool.

    I'm always more of a proponent of trying to beat something rather than banning everything, but that's just me.


    I agree and it's definitely not just you Smile

    "But they're a company are you saying they can't make money???? lol why are you so stupid??" Of course they can earn money, but you can earn money and still have a brain, some form of integrity and trustworthiness.
    This is ******* ridiculous.


    They do have integrity and trustworthiness! For their stockholders.


    Exactly hehe

    I agree Urza should have been banned instead of Opal, it just going to keep getting better with any relevant artifact and will be broke again in a few months.

    As for lattice, the problem I see with this ban is the inconsistency, if they don't like strategies that turn magic into solitaire they should ban other unfun cards as blood moon.

    Something I would like to see is a Mox for only colored spells, that artifact decks can't use, specially designed to give speed to "fair" decks trying to catch up. Maybe like chrome mox but with some limitations on the use of its mana.


    Lattice also wasn't good in every match, especially against stuff like burn and other decks of similar speed and aggression. Yeah it was really strong, but it wasn't broken and isn't that the ******* idea of playing modern? having access to really strong cards? It's ******* lame.

    Oko is genuinely unfun in commander. Even gets around indestructible. Any good card will have 3 opponents against it. Prophet of Kruphix for example; so it’s not a valid reason. Oko isn’t even tolerable in commander of all formats. It’s just very poor design that I find highly astounding slipped passed play testing, regardless of what excuses they’ve made for it. Just ban it across the board. Even as someone who loves Simic and shirtless men I can’t stand the design of that card to even use it myself. It just feels cheap.

    I feel like Ballista is more likely to get the ban than Heliod. It’s a matter of time. No way that combo is surviving. Heliod will just have to stand out for his intended design, not a combo like that. He’s a well designed white card.


    I'm going to get pissed if they ban Ballista too. It's my favourite card.
    These bannings, other than Oko, are ridiculous and completely miss the mark. Like back when they banned Bridge From Below instead of the big hoe this summer. Incompetent.

    My guess is they're going to wait until they've sold a sufficient amount of Theros packs and then ban ballista. It's all about the mnoney for them. "But they're a company are you saying they can't make money???? lol why are you so stupid??" Of course they can earn money, but you can earn money and still have a brain, some form of integrity and trustworthiness.
    This is ******* ridiculous.

    Ha, this makes Urza’s Tower tap for CCCCCCCCC XD

    And I don’t even want to think of what this can do for Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant/Sasaya’s Essence...


    Didn't think of it working with Urza lands too lol. I wonder if this could work in my Green Tron deck as a one of or something. Probably not, but it'll be fun to try out.

    What in Thassa’s sweet sea is this?!!!!???


    The best thing about this spoiler season, other than how cool this set looks, is your reaction to every card that's spoiled hehe. It's great Smile


    Weird

    This card is interesting to me. Outside of builds intended to exploit its effect, it feels mostly win-more. But with the right support, it will come down early and set you up with a ridiculous boost of mana production. Omnath and Rosheen are obvious homes for this, but I like it for my WURG manland deck that already ramps considerably but also wants to keep a lot of lands available for animating. The Ancient gives a great deal of flexibility to decks that can be mana-intensive. That won't be every deck that runs green, but even saying that is in itself demonstrating the potential of this card.

    It's a bombastic design, one that serves as a turbo button, but I don't think it's overpowered.


    Yeah I don't think it's overpowered either since it takes some effort to hit the turbo button in 1vs1. It's going to be sick in commander though and I want it for the Kruphix deck I'm building.

    And Weird right back at ya' lol
