    Thanks for the heads up! Got a play set of Path of Ancestry for $12 after coupon! They’re $5.50 each on TCGP, so I’m pretty happy with that.

    eBay coupon (in app only): PSAVETODAY

    15% off until 7PM PT. Max $100 off


    I’d never used the app before today, but for those that haven’t it’s very simple. You use the same eBay name and PW, and it automatically linked to my PayPal acct when I signed in to eBay. It was really no different.

    Can get boxes of War of the Spark from seller Sportsandmore for $74.80 or as low as $73.66 if you buy by the case. Unfortunately I only saw one seller for Modern Horizons, and his price was $250, or $211 after coupon. With the abolition of MSRP and no other sellers to compare to who knows if $211 is a good price or not...

    Could be that Bolas is keeping Tezzeret off-plane as an escape route should things go wrong with the Immortal Sun locking everyone in.

    Also, this just reinforces my belief that this set will have Fetchlands. Unless they reprint all the Shocks in WAR or make all 36 Planeswalkers not legal in Standard, this set will need some sort of reliable mana-fixing to cope with all the multicolored Planeswalkers that will be in the format. Spare me the usual reactions, I know what "they say". I'll admit I'm wrong when I'm actually proven wrong with a full set list.


    The could always do a spin on Ancient Ziggurat. It could tap for 1 colorless or for 1 of any color that can only be used on PW’s. It’s a hell of a lot easier method to deal with a massive influx of multicolored PW’s than relying on Fetches. Like Ziggurat it could even be printed at UC.

    Does anyone else just think this set screams Zendikar fetches? We know Wizards HATES the idea of printing them in a Standard legal set (especially with a new non-rotating format coming in the fall with at least Arena) so this would be the perfect opportunity and increase their circulation without leading to degeneracy in their most popular format.


    They specifically said in the Stream that the reprints (besides basics) are old cards not already in the Modern format, so no, Fetches are not going to be reprinted in this set. It’s literally in the first post in this thread.

    I see that they’re not advertising the comprehensive card image guide booklet thing. Haven’t bought a bundle since Ixalan block, have they done away with them already or is this a new development?

    Quote from signofzeta »
    I just thought of this. Core set 2020 comes out before Commander 2019. Think about it. Core set twenty twenty comes out before Commander twenty nineteen.

    I wonder why they use next year for core sets, but this year for commander, especially when Commander is released a month after the core set.


    It’s because it has to do with how long the set is available in standard. Core 2020 will be legal in 2020, and they felt it would be confusing for people (newer people) to use cards with an out of date year (and would hurt sales in that second year) if it seemed out of date.

    Commander has no season, rotation, prolonged purchase period, or officially sanctioned tournament structure, so the same reasoning does not apply.

  • posted a message on EDH. 3 color mana base help
    You, and another poster mentioned a Tri-land in a 3 color deck. Note, Path of Ancestry is a STRICTLY BETTER upgrade than ALL Tri-lands. Like a Tri, it taps for the same 3 colors. Like a Tri, it enters tapped. And that where a Tri’s ability ends, and Path of Ancestry keeps going. Even if you have no other creature that matches you Commander’s creature type, you’ll still get 2, 3, perhaps 4 or more triggers of a Scry 1 just by casting your commander and how frequently it dies. I recommend running both it and the corresponding Tri, but there is never a reason to run a Tri OVER PoA.

    Why can't gu Just get sphynx's revalation stapled to a creature? This is so unfair.


    Because it already exists? Azor, the Lawbringer.

    I've always wanted play Darien, King of Kjeldor but I hear Mana Crypt is a must...


    I’ve got got 25 EDH decks currently, and my Darien deck is easily in the top third in terms of power and fun. In fact it’s one of my 8 foiled out decks. I’ve had it for almost 8 years now, so I’ve easily got well over 100 games piloting it. For the first 5 or so of those years I didn’t have a Crypt. And, while it does now run a Mana Crypt, there’s absolutely NO way it’s essential. Granted it’s not a 0 cost rock, but there are plenty of lands that you can use to ping yourself with to create Soldiers. Nomad Stadium Ancient Tomb City of Brass Tarnished Citadel and Grand Coliseum have provided more than enough redundancy that the deck is a consistent top performer.

    I’m attaching pics of the deck to give you an idea of what it consists of. If you ignore the foiled out nature of it, and remove the Crypt and Zhang Fei, the whole deck probably costs just $300-$400. Not pictured are 16 Plains and a Smothering Tithe I’m waiting on.

    Will probably see some play in Ramos, Dragon Engine Decks, which tend to be high on the multicolor spells.

    Better mana fixing (even if these always end up getting disassembled or upgraded, I’m tired of a ~dozen ETB tapped duals per deck). Better reprints of format staples. Also, STRIP MINE. Practically no one likes MLD, but targeted land destruction is a necessity for the format, and it’s now a ~$16 card.

    This could be very solid in a Scarab God EDH deck, as there’s a likelihood you’ll have some zombie lord’s on the table, and causing your opponents to fill their GY’s will fuel his exile/token creating ability. Plus it will build on Scarab God’s scrying/life loss ability.

    This card is even nastier if you’ve got Kindred Discovery out, as you’ll immediately refill your hand.
