    I am fairly certain you can't, as the new bag of holding is seen as a different entity than the one you had on the field previously, so it would not consider the exiled cards to be exiled by itself. Someone will probably drop by with all the proper rule references though.

    Nope, you would have to sacrifice It. It enters, asks for the sacrifice, does it to self being the only land available.

    Ah, thanks. Yes, that makes a lot more sense!

    I might be wrong, but this card seems to lack any text for what would happen if you are unable to sacrifice two lands ('if you do not, sacrifice this permanent'), nor is it worded as an additional cost or some such. Does that mean that if you play this as your first land, you wouldn't loose any lands at all?

    Hmm, persistent late-game card advantage is nice for EDH. It lacks Omnath, locus of rage's combo-potential though.

    This card gets the Omnath, Locus of rage seal of approval.

    How does this interact with Blasphemous act or similar high-damage boardwipes? Would I get to shoot someone for 13 damage for each sliver I have, or would it be capped to the sliver's toughness?

    Quote from Raptorchan »

    Ghosts she freed (Ethereal Absolution) secretly were Ravnica's defense forces, and after facing some economic problems after freeing all debt slaves, Kaya just decided to rise up the taxes - and it caused massive upheavals and more casualties, weakening the plane overall right before the invasion (Smothering Tithe). Enough?


    Because its wrong to free slaves and let the free pay their share of the upkeep instead? Timing might have been really, really bad, but the act itself doesn't sound that way.

    I lose enough walkers every game that I'm not worried about killing some myself for certain ults.


    Yeah, I suspect this card will see as much use finishing off your own uncommon planeswalkers to fuel an instant-win ult as it does hosing an opposing superfriends deck.

    Guys, you totally misunderstood. I never said that Bolas has to win, but even if he lose, it shouldn't be shown in a way so obvious even before half of the cards spoiled, before the villain itself get officially spoiled. That's just bad storytelling.


    You're assuming all the cards from now on will be about bolas losing. First, we got a look at Bolas initial invasion and the devastation wrought. Now we've seen a lot of cars focused on 'rallying the troops' and offing the lieutenants like Dovin, but I expect that soon we'll get some 'darkest moment' cards that are trending the other way again. Don't forget, early in the spoiler season there where some cards that seemed to hint bolas might actually pull it off against all expectation, so until we see a card with dead bolas on it, I wouldn't assume anything about the way this war will go.

    I'm looking forward to a more complicated version of him that captures more of his character, but I'd say this is a pretty good card in limited. I don't usually play black, but if I open this one during the pre-release, I just might.

  • posted a message on Pir +master biomancer+Nimbus swimmer
    This is a question that came up while brewing a pir and toothy EDH Deck. let's say I've got Pir, imaginative rascal and master biomancer on the field, and play a card like Nimbus swimmer that enters the battlefield with a number of +1/+1 counters. Do I get an extra counter from Pir for both Nimbus swimmer's original counters and the bonus counters from master biomancer, or do I only get one extra counter, as nimbus swimmer enters the battlefield with both his own counters and those from master biomancer all at once?
