    Maro also said there would be over 40 named mechanics in this set

    Dare we see Banding or Flanking make a return?

    A legend that gave Banding or Flanking to the team would be cute. Even more so if they had matching colors... I've never had the opportunity to try, but I would enjoy swinging in with a mob of banded 1/1's that all had flanking and band together and kill some big 'ole 5/5 before damage even with the banded flanking alone. Heck, gimme a Lord Legend that gives the team both banding and flanking and that's all it need say on the card to have a bunch of fun!

    As much as I'd love to see banding reappear, I'm pretty sure that like ante, they will never do that again.

    Flanking on the other hand is pretty sweet and did appear in Time Spiral, so it is in modern.

    More importantly... why is this thread here?

    That's a pretty sweet reprint, and it might drive foil prices down as well. You might always want this with the kicker though.

    Not sure this will affect foil prices, as Invasion foils are rarer than newer foils. Those old school foils are nice looking too...

    I am also a teacher, but I do not find a lot of good uses for magic in the classroom. That said, Magic can be a great way to get kids interested in spending more time in your classroom and is a nice way to hang after school for an hour or so with 5-6 kids and foster a connection which can make teaching easier.

    As far as incorporating it into lessons, I think you'd be hard-pressed to make that effective for all students, because some people just don't dig MTG (for some reason).

    Still too much cityscape for my taste. Just show m ea bunch of trees for "Forest", a wide expanse for "Plains" and so on.
    It's going to be rough if they rotate out current and older basics in decks in Arena and I have to use these. Frown

    It's a city-plane, so in theory, there are no open forests or plains on Ravnica....

  • posted a message on Modern Horizons Reprint Speculation
    Since the announcement of Modern Horizons, I can't stop wondering what Vintage/Legacy/Commander/Conspiracy/Battlebond goodies they'll reprint for the modern format.

    I thought I'd start this thread so we can share our collective mind and discuss potential reprints (and maybe their effect on the format)

    My short list:
    "Warriors matter" cards from battlebond (good common/uncommon chaff) Aurora Champion, Azra Bladeseeker, etc...
    Arena Rector
    Angel of Finality
    Crosis's Charm (cycle)
    Darksteel Mutation

    What do you think?

  • posted a message on Brawl - the format
    Don't look at this as an EDH variant. Look at it as a different version of singleton. I think it's aimed at getting new players more comfortable with formats. I always hated having to get 4 of a card to compete. I'll never forget winning a box of Urza's Saga with my winter orb deck, and thinking that I'll never be able to afford four of each of the premium cards in that set at age 17, so I sold my whole collection (for the first time... lol). This way people can play with all those one-of rares they pull right away in constructed formats.

    The commander part allows for a little more consistency and a chance for new players to jump into a synergistic theme without too much specialization.

    Don't play it if you don't want to. I'll have a deck ready to play people.
