    No Ashiok comments?

    Ashiok comments were like halfway down the 1st page.

    To answer the question, probably not. When the site was moved over to CURSE site, you had to manually migrate your account or it would be lost, so this probably happened to your account.

    Alison Luhrs said "also sometimes the struggle of naming a card is matching the name to both the mechanics AND the art. Sometimes one wins out over the other"

    So the goal was to make a card that made mana and animated, but also was a joke about dinosaurs being oil, but not invoke phyrexia? I think this card was a flop in that case.

    I get that it could be an oil joke like Jivan said, but still, this:
    Quote from Dusk707 »
    The wording of the card is important. Ichor is a word not often used in MTG, but 4 of the 5 previous times have been in reference to Phyrexia (specifically, New Phyrexia). I'm sure Wizards did this deliberately, as they could have easily called it Fountain of Oil or Fountain of Tar and used slightly different flavor text.

    it this is just a dino joke, then THIS:
    Quote from Ebline »
    I would hope that they would have learned by now from other foreshadowing and red-herring flops that showing us black, oily goop with that specific aesthetic and sinister flavortext wording as a misdirect or "joke" will play pretty poorly to a lot of people.


    they couldve called it many other things and not invoke phyrexians.

    I think we know the phyrexians are going to try and invade another plane. With the flavor of Fountain of Ichor taking place on Ixalan is this foreshadowing of what is to come? Or is that too obvious?

    All of them look interesting and playable. Smiting Helix is going to become a staple in Mardu commander decks.
    I don't know about becoming a staple. Four mana is a big ask, considering how many things three damage doesn't kill. You're in the three colors best at killing creatures, so Smiting Helix will see some extremely stiff competition to make it into decks, even considering the fact that you can use it twice.


    I think being a sorcery also hurts it. I dont think it will get much attention in EDH

    I feel like they missed out on not calling this Domri’s Raid.


    I agree, although Domri's last name is pronounced "Rah-day" and not "Raid"

    I believe you but, source? Never heard that before.

    Quote from nerf »
    I'm seriously curious about why this needed to be conditional to not put there this combat? Is there some sort of loop of extra combats I'm missing? Hmmm maybe to just avoid confusion about whether you could normally target a creature that died in combat? Which double checking it definitely looks like you can. Oh I see, with trample raise deading itself might be a little much, swing, trade a creature and get him back from his own ability would be pretty strong.


    Pretty sure that self recursion isn't the reason because the way it's worded you can loop a second copy just fine.


    Seems like flat was talking about recurring ONE card over and over. A 1 card recursion engine is way different from a 2-card engine.

    Quote from ihategrixis »
    It would be really interesting if they instead did it for the original five Gatewatch as a juxtaposition of the “[blanks]’s Defeat” cycle from Hour of Devastation

    That is definitely possible since we also have a card called Liliana's Triumph which gets better if you control a Liliana PW.

    Quote from desruprot »
    Angrath following Bolas makes sense, also giving all your creatures menace is quite good, for 4 mana I'd take it.

    How does it make sense? Last time we saw Angrath he wanted to go home and just live with his daughters in peace.
