Cards that reference "Outside of the Game" as a zone have been banned.
Quote from SaltMaster 5000 »
What do you mean by masterpieces? Do you mean extended art cards? If so, Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis, Calix, Destiny's Hand, and Ashiok, Nightmare Muse have great Chuck Lukacs art.
It's not that they have weird frames or weird text in the case of the Ahmonkhet ones, it's that they have that soulless new card look to them. It has nothing to do with the fact that they're masterpieces.
One of the reasons I play with so many COK Block cards in my cube is that they're from what I would consider the golden age of this game's art. Look at Wandering Ones or Day of Destiny or Nim Replica or Gutless Ghoul or the original Imperial Recruiter or Hana Kami. The cards don't look like this anymore.
Quote from Cythare »I'm going to revive this and ask for people's opinions on the aesthetics of the Ikoria alt-arts.
However, so many of the cards having alternate versions calls to me. I'm probably going to try to get the Mothra version of Luminous Broodmoth, even though it's a bit goofy, as well as the comic-book versions of the triomes, Vivien, and Sea-Dasher Octopus (but probably not end up actually getting all of them due to cost issues).
Quote from MagicFever »Since I am rebuilding my cube I lack the experience with some cards from the previous sets and would be very happy if you can get me some (short) input for the following cards (my cube will be unpowered moden-frame only and will have a size of 405 or 450). Since the list of cards is on the larger site, just a ranking from A to E would be enough. For reference, this is my preliminary list, Thanks
Quote from WizardMN »Your mantra isn't "you will get to play". Your mantra is "I will get to play". You don't seem to care about what makes a good game; you just care about yourself and not getting stopped.
I would legitimately be interested in hearing if you can ever get something like this off the ground. And, then, how long your group plays with these rules. I know I wouldn't come near it because I think these rules are terrible but maybe you can find enough like-minded people who have fun with it.
Quote from Goodking »Quote from Niphred »The Companion mechanic seems like a judge nightmare. Is the player using the companion supposed to present the contents of their deck to their opponent beforehand? How do they prove they are eligible to use the companion? The same seems true for casual environments to a degree. Will pass on everything but Lutri for this reason.
Good question, I guess if your opponent is running Lurrus in Companion mode and then throws down a 3 cmc permanent you bring it up then?
