    How has no one mentioned The Immortal Sun yet? Even if your opponent isn’t playing PW’s it’s still useful.

    LoadingReadyRun, never heard of that channel, and its contents appear to be outside of TCG?



    LLR are extremely well know but they have a few channels. Their LRRMTG one is devoted to Magic exclusively (although iDK if this one or just the all-purpose LRR is dealing with spoilers).

    Flavor fail by not having a card with “pest” in the name not bounce back to your hand to be replayed when it gets killed.

    Useful in a Korvold deck. Play this, sac a creature, draw a card, add a counter to Korvoldand replace what was sac’d with likely more creatures than the 1 you sac’d. Then the new sac-able creature have upside to boot.

    Needs lifelink on its own. The 4 life wouldn’t pay for/mitigate completely the untap ability, but would help considerably. Kinda like Griselbrand’s lifelink helps pay for its card draw.

    Hot damn. Blows up everyones toys but ends the game most of the time



    how does this end the game? It doesn’t destroy your opponents creatures and the inklings it makes ETB tapped. Both of those things leave you vulnerable and you just dumped all your mana into it.

    Great in a Trostoni deck. Much of the time it will be play a creature, get your second creature for free.

    Possibly an improvement over Bestial Menace. Might find a home in Purphoros decks.

    It’s true, this card is great in Magic Christmas-land.

    Ugh, hits you as well. Would much rather have seen the tax drop to 1 if it only hit opponents.

    Are you referring to presumably cheaper Kobold tokens? Because if you’re implying these would be new, they already exist.

    now you're out until bare minimum the set rotates.

    they'll be all over standard, and if you want to participate because its an entire set you WILL have to buy in. so now you get to sit out of standard for like 2 years.


    Here’s an idea, read the announcement before coming on here and pitching a fit over something that IS NOT HAPPENING.

    The Giants (Titans) ones are a giant middle finger from Wizards to us. First, include Primeval, which is banned in EDH. Second, exclude Sun Titan, which sees more EDH play than any of the other OG Titans. Third, breaking it up into TWO sets, when the Black is Magic lair shows they’re willing to do a 7 card set, and combining these would only be 6, and again that’s with unforgivably leaving one out. Fourth, they have two different price tags, despite both having the same theme and the same number of cards? Wizards just s******g all over us.

    Are you low on Sun Titans or something?
    It literally just got reprinted, and has had many more printings than Primeval (MANY commander decks including both recent Zendikar and Kaldheim commander decks, the alt art Heroes vs Monsters Duel deck, alt art Prerelease promo...) Where was Primeval reprinted with alternate art beyond the Grand Prix Promo? And then there was the Alternate Grave Titan DoTP promo which wasn't even available where I live and somehow got credited to the wrong artist. That's the Titan screw up you should be upset about, but I digress.
    Why do you assume Secret Lair products are only geared towards commander players?
    They can't throw modern a bone on occasion?
    Geez, this is one of those Lairs I saw and instantly thought everyone would be happy with until I started reading and noticed the pending banning, which in all honesty is unsurprising, even if I'd prefer they unban something else in said formats instead to balance the playing fields. It it really so impossible to sideboard vs Uro, or are people just too lazy and not including the right cards in sideboards?
    Regardless of the banning and absence of sun titan which I could care less about, I'll be buying some of these for sure without hesitation.
    I'm just curious...How much more value do you want them to print, box up, and ship you at a discount (compared to the current secondary market value of the cards included) for such a product to be worth your time and interest? Personally, I'm happy to pay shipping, exchange to CAD, and duty above the tag and tax.
    Perhaps if there was a "build-your own" Secret Lair where you can choose any five commons, four uncommons, three rares, and two mythics (from any previous secret lair product) it would be "worth it"?



    If you think the secondary market price of Sun Titan was my point, you’re beyond clueless.

  • posted a message on Cards to expand Commander color identity
    Quote from Egogalore »
    Why wouldn’t you just make a singular card that punishes all colors evenly
    Like...
    At the start of game declare a color your commander is that color in addition to its original colors
    Your commander deals damage to you equal to each devotion in the mana cost of a spell that includes the declared color, all damage is considered commander damage



    As long as we’re asking questions, why would you dredge up a three and a half year old post?
