    Excited to see how these two sets compliment together. Hopefully we can get tribal decks strong enough for standard.

    While I agree not every product is for everyone, I must ask, who is this product geared towards? The gullible?


    What's gullible about it? It's just drafting both sets in one. You could buy two boxes or just buy this one and get some weird art cards. If you love drafting, then it's probably something you'd like to pick up for a new drafting exoerience. I'm interested in seeing if they just mash the tep sets together or cut cards out and trim it.

    This subpar redundant grayscale product should be boycotted completely. Honestly, just leave it on store shelves for the next two decades and send an important message, because obviously, Wizards just wants to save on printing costs by reducing their consumption of color toner, and if these packs aren't cheaper to buy than their colored counterparts (regardless of the print run which we won't know anyway), they're essentially profiting even more than usual (excessively by any metric) at the consumer's expense. This is insulting, unacceptable, and functionality notwithstanding, at best, these cards art artificial collectibles, perhaps even more gimmicky and unattractive to me as full-text basic lands which so far is the frontrunner of terrible marketing ideas.

    They should've just reprinted Dark Ascension, given the planeswalkers alternate art, and called the product Spark Ascension instead


    I mean... sure they will make more money in theory if people buy it... but since when are we against them making money? Do you want to see them fail? It doesn't hurt us in any way, and it's not predatory like Secret Lairs. A lot of people like the black and white versions. I don't see your point as something anyone should be concerned about. If you don't like it, don't buy it.

    I do think it would have been better if they mixed in old cards from Innistrad and Shadows over Innistrad, but I don't see anything inherently wrong with them making this product

    I kinda wish instead of redoing the new cards from Crim Vow & Mid Hunt, they reprinted cards from Innistrad block and made it a combined draft set. That way you could draft the old Innistrad sets and even maybe do a special draft experience where you combine the old with the new!

  • posted a message on Madness back in Crimson Vow
    Idk... I feel like Madness was more of a SoI block thing to fit alongside Emrakul's influence. You're reading too much into it. Red and Black have had discard outlets for things before.. it's not an uncommon piece of their identity. I think they will have abilities based on if an opponent lost life/was dealt damage this turn. This fits the theme of vampires getting riled up from smelling blood.

    I’ve been thinking some more golos might be the greatest ban in the history of commander

    Because for once the RC banned a card that’s a money maker card for the company’s and now they lost it. In other words this will truely give a indication to WOTC to not make cards 5-color commanders as bonkers as golos

    this is why I fully believe in kamigawa neon dynasty if we get a 5-color spirit tribal legend it won’t be a “good stuff” commander.


    I'm cool with 5 color Commanders, I just think they should have a theme or be hard to cast. Tiamat is fine because it wants you to play dragons. Golos just let you play all the best cards and quickly enabled that strategy.

    Thank the Heavens. While Golos is a cool card, it's just too good for multiple reasons, and it feels bad to play against.

    I'm really puzzled by how I want to play this. It feels good, but also so niche as a Commander. Do I just play sac lands for value? Do I go counters?

    What would be nice is a blue enchantment like:

    Horrid Sliming 1UU
    Enchantment
    When ~ enters the battlefield, put a slime counter on target creature.
    Creature's with slime counters on them lose all abilities and have base power and toughness 2/2.

    That would give thid card some extra footing and also act as the blue "turn to frog" card of the set

    I hope I get to draft this in a mono green shell on Arena. It would be such a fun deck haha

    There is a legendary ooze in this set! I am hoping it is Black/Green.

    Unruly? The flavour text makes it sound like they should be called hardened villagers or something like that lol.


    Yeah at this point they should have been called "Justified Militia" based on everything they have gone through haha

    I wish Saryth was actually a legendary snake instead of a human warlock, however. We need more legendary snakes! The flavor fits pretty well. While they are untapped, they are waiting in ambush and camouflaged. While they are attacking, they are dangerous!

    Haha I was right about the flip Day/Night Card!
