Quote from Ritokure »You sure about that?
Even land ramping has lost a lot of lustre in the last decade or so. Elfball isn't a thing anymore.Elfball was a thing literally last format. Try again.

Quote from Xcric »i've got no real complaints with these bannings. especially over time its going to be more and common to see two card combos given the volume of cards designed. that said sometimes i wonder how much cards being new influences their decision making process, and it calls into question how well they can police their own formats. the posts here make it clear the majority feel urza is the real problem, but the set he's in is premium priced and relatively new compared to mox opal. banning opal doesn't really hurt sales of packs, banning urza may slow the sale of modern horizons packs despite it being 6 months old now. it could be a stretch to make that assumption, but if it isn't i'd wager that line of thought toward bannings will have more of a detrimental effect on the game than oops we printed oko ever could
Quote from Simto » "But they're a company are you saying they can't make money???? lol why are you so stupid??" Of course they can earn money, but you can earn money and still have a brain, some form of integrity and trustworthiness.
This is ******* ridiculous.
Quote from ChrisBP7 »Quote from ilovesaprolings »There is a big monowhite hole in Theros pantheon right now. If they don't fill it with Gideon, they are doing it wrong.
I mean, seeing how theran apotheosis works, he wouldn't need to be resurrected or anything, people just have to believe in the idea of him and the god created this way will have features and characteristics of Gideon (or may even identify as him) without actually being the same person. It could happen, he just needs a big enough cult following him... this card indicates that something like this may already be starting.

Quote from MoonliteKnight »Perhaps it's the Netflix show, the MMORPG, and all of the other resources that the brand is focusing on that's siphoning creative from the actual TCG. I've been playing MTG since pretty much the beginning and the lore was still fun back when it was vague and we had to fill in the gaps, yet through the decades WotC has ratcheted up the Vorthos component of MTG such that they have the capability for things such as an MMORPG and a Netflix series, so maybe this is just a natural progression. Who knows, we may get story lines and sets of cards that are based on the show or the video games if they are well received enough.
Quote from JaceBluesMaster »What is making gold in this set? Also, I thought gold was too good, which is why WotC made Treasure.
Quote from CatParty »What makes the wall token? I just scoured the full set and can't seem to find a reference...
Quote from Crispen_Smith »A couple of times during spoiler season the team variously said (and I'm paraphrasing a little) "we f***ed up, wasted a bunch of time getting it wrong and then course corrected. The new set is gonna be, well, a set". (The Stygian mechanic, overly complicated cards that were caught late in the dev cycle and needed a quick fix).
They weren't wrong about that. This is 264 new cards alright. There are things to live about this set and there are some really weird things that seem to be the result of getting it wrong.
Building M:TG is a hard job, I'm glad it isn't mine. The R&D team put their heart and soul into it. This is going to be a fun set to play and there are cards I love at all rarities but there's those weird gaps.
Quote from The Lord of Tresserhorn » Ashiok...
Yeah, what a great idea to show up at the doorstep of Elesh Norn...
Anyway, now I hope for some future in which we get Ashiok, Compleated!

My train of thought is that after the nightmares and new powers gained by Elspeth she is determined to go back and help what ever remains to save in new phyrexia.
