    No, it is not.

    Tribal is a card type, and would not work if it were a supertype. That is because the lists of subtypes are each keyed to one or more specific card types. For example, Forest is only a subtype of lands. Curse is only a subtype of enchantments. Arcane is only a subtype of instants and sorceries. Tribal was created simply in order to have a type that was allowed to share all the subtypes that creatures have.


    Oh ok, I will change my card. Thanks for all the feedback.

    Planeswalker (and tribal)

    But isn't Tribal a supertype? Or should I add in all supertypes (Legendary, Tribal, Snow, Basic)?

    Designwise this is fine. It would probably have to be a rare, because it's fairly complex in memory terms and it adds any color without ETBing tapped. However, it's certainly not overpowered, just a somewhat strong card.

    Lorewise, the name is a bit off as the "center" of the Mage-Rings is perhaps too grandiose of a name for this card as that presumably contains all the leylines of a whole continent and thus a truly massive quantity of mana. Maybe something like "Mage-Ring Axis" would be a better name.

    Finally, you missed a card type in the reminder text! (Technically two.)


    I knew I had missed something! What are the card types that I missed?

    Is there anything wrong with this card? Is my lore of Origins a bit fuzzy? Should I make it legendary? Can I add super types such as legendary and snow? Is the wording correct?

    Mage-Ring Axis
    Land (R)
    As Center of the Mage-Rings enters the battlefield, choose a card type (Artifacts, Enchantment, Creature, Instant, Sorcery, Land, Planeswalker, and Tribal)
    T: Add one mana of any colour. Use this mana only to cast spells of the chosen type or activate an ability from the chosen type

    Thanks for all feedback

    Quote from Flisch »
    I find it hard to believe Kaya is a) working for Bolas and b) leading a guild, you know, the two prerequisites for the walkers in the first two sets. (Unless Ravnica Allegiance has 4 walkers of course. But that'd still not solve the problem of who'd be in charge of Orzhov.)

    Plot twist: The ghost council originally struck a deal with Bolas, siding with him, but Teysa hires Kaya to assassinate them as Kaya, being a planeswalker, isn't bound by the guildpact magic, which allows Teysa to take control of the Orzhov and oppose Bolas.

    That would be really cool to see, but one thing. Isn't Teysa still locked up in the jail? I thought only Tajic got freed my Aurelia.

    Quote from Impossible »
    Once you've completed the New Player Experience quest line, you'll end up with 10 two-color preconstructed decks. Some of the decks are competitively viable with a few upgrades. The merfolk one (UG) in particular comes to mind. You can also use the decks for parts to make your own, as many of them contain solid playable cards. For example jamming 4x Shock, 4x Lightning Strike, 4x Murder, 1x Vraska's Contempt plus whatever your best R/B creatures are into a deck is probably good enough for your purposes of getting enough wins a day to earn rewards.

    As the person above me suggested, I think the best use of your gold will be to do Draft to convert your Gold into Gems, as well as hopefully earn some rewards. Remember you get to keep any cards you draft, as well. This is a decent way to start expanding your collection. Once you have enough Gems, Competitive Draft or Sealed is what you want to be doing, as they generally have the best prize structure to allow you make most/all of your entry fee back, essentially allowing you to "go infinite". If you can reliably get 3+ wins in Competitive Draft (3 wins before 2 loses is the break-even point) you'll be able to quickly grow your collection as well as earn wildcards from the prize packs. In my opinion, this is the best way to grind for cards. Not to mention the enjoyment of actually playing draft or sealed, which is also just fun by itself. Far better, in my mind, than grinding Standard every day against the same few decks.

    I agree with Impossible here. The best way to get a competitive deck up and running is saving up coins and gems for Draft and/or Sealed, as the cards you open are added to your collection. If you don't want to go that far yet, try making a Blue Black surveil deck. It doesn't cost much (just a bunch of uncommons from a single set) to make and is very competitive.

    No, no and no.

    As things stand there is no way to trade cards.
    Or even, as far as I know, to remove them from your collection.

    Alright, and oh well. Thanks for answering my questions Sizel.

    Can you trade with other players? If so, how?
    Can you sell cards you don't need? If so, how?
    Can you trade or sell free cards?

    Were you OP looking for something like this:

    Ornery Goblin > Goblin Piker

    Same rarity, P/T and creatures types.

    Ornery Goblin has trigger that allows for better combat if you control it.

    Yes.

    Does this count?
    Baneslayer Angel > Serra Angel
    1. +1 Power
    2. +1 Toughness
    3. First Strike
    4. Pro Demons
    5. Pro Dragons
    and then -1 for not having Vigilance
    Score = Baneslayer 5 - Serra Angel 1
    Well no, it doesn't count.

    While nobody would argue that Baneslayer is better in many ways and is the better card, not having vigilance makes it not at all strictly better in the same sense that Moonveil Dragon isn't strictly better than Volcanic Dragon.

    So it must be no downsides? That's good to know for next time.

    Ixalan's Binding > Hieromancer's Cage
    1. Binding makes the exiled card not be able to be cast again
    Cast Out > Hieromancer's Cage
    1. Cast Out has Flash
    2. Cast Out has Cycling
    Banishing Light > Hieromancer's Cage
    1. Banishing Light costs one less

  • posted a message on Is shelling out for my deck build on MTG Online worth it if I want on demand practice?
    Quote from Mana Goat »
    No.

    But why though?

    I think it's a good idea if you don't have anyone to play with and you have the spare time to do so, but ultimately, it's your choice. I also think it's good because you play all different sorts of decks, not the same old boring ones each week. But, again, your choice.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and it's a good way to playtest new cards before buying them in real life, as MTGO is cheaper than paper.
