    This art really needed to be on a better card...


    I'm rebuilding 8rack over this card, completely.


    And I'm old enough to think you were reconstructing a playback machine for some classic rock...

    (but not disco. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt there)

    That Tamayo looks soo much better than the regular one we're getting in the West.


    Yeah, but to be fair, the Japanese artist probably thought "Hey, they stole this character from OUR mythology, so let me make a kick @$$ art for it"...

    Ugin looks like he's Wile E Coyote and just noticed he ran off the cliff. Flapping his arms furiously trying to fly.

    Cool cool cool you want to play the lottery. Have fun opening packs looking for specific cards.

    Having Standard decks that don't cost hundreds of dollars? Outrageous! I know, it's weird that people actually want to play their game without having to consider the financial ramifications. So what?


    Inconsistent logic. Having lottery tickets in the packs reduces the prices of all other cards in the packs and makes standard more affordable, not less.

    Standard decks will still cost hundreds of dollars because Hasbro still makes sure nearly all the tournament quality cards are at least rare if not Mythic. Just wait. You haven't seen the mythic mana-fixing land cycle yet...

    At least Gateway Plaza is a reprint, not a 4th name on the same card...

    Lol at “broken” target-specific removal. Powerful sideboard cards are self-regulating. Nobody mainboards Massacre


    Can we stop with the absolutely ridiculous comparisons? Plummet? Massacre?

    Neither of those cards say "Destroy any number of <thing>, completely up to you. Make your <thing> better for each <thing> destroyed."

    If your comparison isn't in that template, it doesn't belong in the "This new card is not as good as this old card that must not be broken because nobody uses it" template.

    Come on.

    How often do you see yourself facing more than 1 walker? And even if all stars align and hell freezes and you get to cast it against 2-3 walkers AND it resolves, that means that a) all walkers have been activated at least 1 time b) 1-2 walkers have been activated several times over several turns, gaining their controller an accumulated advantage. Is resolving elder spell really gonna turn the tides at that point?


    Actually, yes. Turning the tide is just what this is for. This is not a Win-More card that you play when you're already ahead and it dosnt matter. This card takes those 2-3 walkers that have been activated a couple times, gaining their controller an accumulated advantage, and then it wipes out that advantage and gives it to you instead. The more they were ahead of you in the dimension this card operates in, the more they lose and the more you gain.

    I hate Walkers, and I have since they were invented. For a long time, each one basically had the text box "Deal with me right now or lose", and that was one of the things that really narrowed the strategy of the game. The current walkers in this set are actually much better. They're more narrow of focus and don't generally threaten to win the game by themselves. Walkers ought to have been this way since 2007. So I'm really gleeful to see some walker hate.

    But this costs way too little and is way too selective. I get to selectively blow up all of the stuff of this type, no matter whose it is, and avoid whichever of mine I'd like to in order to move some counters around to my preferred cannon. And it costs so little mana that I wont mind firing off a couple early, and backing up the really important one with counters late. Anything that makes people think about whether or not they are overextended is good IMO, but this is too cheap and too selective.

    This card has its own theme music.

    This card is so bad I'm not even going to make a joke about Bond. Passion Bond

    {No search for an image of a post-transition Sean Connery as a southern belle trapped in a job as a small-town strip dancer with a heart of gold. The card isnt good enough}

    I am really interested why the type line is so long. I mean what would be the literal translation of that line. I mean there are two words to describe "Instant".



    IIRC, back in the day German counterspells had the type line Unterbreschwungzauber (spelling is probably off) which meant "comes in at under light speed magic" in the place of "interrupt"

    Best spell type ever.
