    Would Cthulhu and Lovecraftian Horrors count as Leviathan or would we need another creature type for that?

    I wouldn't be surprised if we got a new subtype to tack onto existing ones that implies Kaiju status and then use that subtype as the way to enhance and grow those creatures. Say the subtype is Behemoth, the cards would read "Enchant target Behemoth" or "Equip Behemoth", but they would all also have a regular creature type too so they'd all be like "Creature - Wolf Behemoth" or "Legendary Creature - Dinosaur Behemoth". In this theory anything could be a Behemoth and not just limit it to what we know of Kaiju type creatures. If we're getting wolves, apes, and crocodiles there has to be some influence from "Rampage!" which implies the whole idea of anything being a Kaiju, maybe even a way of Enchanting/Equipping non-Behemoth creatures to make them into Behemoths...geez...gigantic elks just ran through my head...hmm...why was there no real pay-off for having a ton of elk?

    I believe she was "unmade" by Sorin, not killed. So bringing her back is possible. I almost want to say the story almost writes itself. There are either enough people left on Innistrad that believe in her and that wills her back into existence or she reconstitutes herself and becomes a planeswalker in the process (some kind of Dr. Manhattan level nonsense). I always remember the quote from Aetherize when I think about her being unmade, "You can come back once you've learned some manners—and figured out how to reconstitute your physical forms."

    Because Ghost Quarter would've been an easy reprint to nuke Field of the Dead and nonsensical lands becoming too powerful is why I own multiple copies...and people callinge stupid is why I don't play sanctioned tourneys.

    This is why I own four copies of Ghost Quarter.

    Most of them are pretty sweet. The little details in some of them are so weirdly perfect. The food token that looks like Red Riding Hood's picnic basket is amusing me entirely too much...my wolf deck will enjoy it! The mouse with the needle and thread, the board with bricks and sticks, the bear walking into the house. Probably a few other references, but too busy to find them now...although that goat is probably the best goat they've ever done.

    AdmiralBurbia called the name perfectly, nicely done

    Seems like a pretty standard effect, I kinda wish it made a Goblin token but I appreciate the flavor of a Dwarf token.


    Haha! Thanks! The crazy stuff you figure out on your way home from the office. Also, a pretty nice card to boot.

    I wonder how this would do in a Miracles build.


    Muhahaha! My Simic deck will love that idea. Where are all my copies of Nature's Blessing?

    From what we've seen king/queen are not inherited title on this plane, they are earned.

    I was thinking about this in the car the other day...and said, well the Gingerbread house is probably the green one, but what about blue and red? Hmm...wizard's tower and dwarven mine probably...let's see that red one!

    Goes in basically every blue or partial blue deck ever!

    Play with stuff like Simic Growth Chamber to return it to hand and do it again next turn.

  • posted a message on So are just gonna ignore Return to Theros, Zendikar, Ikoria and TeferiM21
    Random idea I had about Ikoria...I remember hearing something about "build your own monster" and hearing Augment and Unstable come up, but what if its more like Do-It-Yourself Seraph? Exile a creature, give a creature in play some trait from the exiled creature...or they can go more Frankenstein and say the exiled creature has to come from the graveyard first.

    Somekind of Gideon reference will likely happen on Theros, probably at least get to see the Memorial from RIP again. There's a just a bit too much we don't know about how planeswalking works that his spirit could be there. Not a surprise either way.

    Teferi core to bring back Zhalfir would be sweet since another trip to Dominaria does not seem to be on the books. Why now and not when we were actually there last? Was Bolas that big a threat? Hopefully we get answers.
